Walking The Dog Backwards: Why I’m Opposed to the Markey Bill

Due to the nature and sensitivity of this topic, The Jewish Press graciously accorded me twice the regular op-ed column size. There is, however, much more I could have said in this essay. Readers who wish to better understand my thinking on these matters can, by visiting my website (www.rabbihorowitz.com), review the many columns I have written over the years on abuse and abuse prevention.

Over the next few weeks, I will lay out a vision for what I think needs to be done, internally and legislatively, to finally – after all these years, after all the drug overdoses and suicides, after all the shattered lives – make our community a safer place for our children and grandchildren.
