A four-month-old Miami baby was chosen as ABC's lead. Amelia Taylor is still tiny, only four pounds, and has defective lungs and digestive system. But the headline is that she is alive at all. When she was born, Dan Harris (subscription required) told us, she weighed ten ounces and was the height of a ballpoint pen. Because she had been in her mother's womb for just 21 weeks, she is being used "as a national poster child" by pro-life activists to repeal laws in 49 states that fail to ban abortions after the twentieth week of pregnancy. Only North Carolina currently imposes such a time limit.
