The editorial actually defended the pro-life movement against the false and sinister accusations by the abortion lobby and its fellow travelers that it bears responsibility for acts by extremists.
The editorial correctly zeroes in on what it calls "the basic premise of the antiabortion movement" -- that "a [preborn baby] is a person."
(The editorial said "fetus," but I've corrected that here.)
The editorial is not perfect, but it's better than many another newspaper's editorials lately.
So, kudos, mostly, to the Times, and it's not often I say that.
