No follow-up

During a recent past year, the Stuart News here in Martin County, Florida, has published a report about the discovery of a fetus in a jar at a construction site, found on or in the ground. No further information has been forthcomng.

As a resident of San Francisco, CA, a sudden rash of newspaper journalism entries this past decade also described accounts of fetuses found in subterranean sewage troughs, also without follow-up.

Because protection of somehow-aborted mothers-to-be is vital during an era of harsh and demanding press corps investigations, perhaps such accounts should remain outside the public press realm rather than invite the kind of prurient inquiry that might destroy maternal character as well.
