The editorial board of the Orlando (Fla) Sentinel recently ran an editorial piece lamenting the fact that the Florida legislature was proceeding with a pro-life bill. The headline of the article was—“Florida abortion bill hits hardest at most vulnerable”. The basic assertion of the article was that vulnerable women should not be forced to do something so decent as to give birth to their babies. The editorial board was incapable of seeing the irony in their headline. When it comes to abortion, the mothers are not the most vulnerable. It is the helpless babies who are the most vulnerable in these situations. The headline unwittingly reminds us that the most vulnerable human beings on the face of the earth are babies in the wombs of abortion-minded mothers.
