Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy.
As I read this verse, my mind went immediately to the issue of abortion.
Many people talk about a woman's choice of the child in the womb? Is not that child "the poor and needy"? That child needs someone to plead his cause. We cannot stand silently by and allow precious lives to be destroyed. This also goes for the handicapped and elderly. We must plead their cause!
Although I wrote this months ago, it is ever true now in light of what has passed in New York and other states. We must open our mouths and plead for the unborn!
