In a Friday New York Times editorial, The Shame of New York’s Group Homes, the closing sentence makes a clear and urgent moral pronouncement:
The answer lies in the state’s urgent obligation to protect those who cannot defend themselves.
They are absolutely correct, though it is not just the state who has an obligation to protect the defenseless. In this case they are speaking of those living in group homes because of their developmental disabilities.
Please pray The New York Times would extend this logic to those even more defenseless: children in the womb. Imagine the impact that could have if God were to wake up The New York Times editorial board to see this issue clearly!
