Misplaced Outrage and Dead Baby Parts

While the kerfuffle around Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and the false reports about its supposed selling of dead baby parts doesn't deal directly with my writing or my books, it does deal directly with the raw material from which my stories arise.

Not long after the release by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) of that first inflammatory video, we knew that it had been recorded secretly under false pretenses and had been heavily edited to garner the juiciest bits for public horrification and to imply financial gain by PPFA.

But what's fascinating me isn't the attempted entrapment or the byzantine machinations of the CMP, as bad as they are. No; as an author, what fascinates me is our reaction to the story.
