It is difficult to know how the story about Bain Capital's investments in Stericycle will turn out. Stericycle is a company that deals with medical waste which, in an Orwellian twist, is understood to include the remains of children who have been aborted. Bain invested $75 million in the company in 1999 but when the issue was raised earlier this year, the company stated that Mr. Romney had left to rescue the Olympics by the time the investment was made. New documents unearthed by Mother Jones indicate that Mr. Romney's involvement with Bain continued for some time. This is important not only because of the issue of Stericycle, but because calculations of outsourced jobs at companies Bain purchased are affected too.
Yet, at the website LifeNews, which monitors all issues related to the pro-life cause, they are playing the denial game on behalf of Gov. Romney. They do not rebut the charge so much as ignore it.
