Is visiting the orphans & widows a guard from worldly stain?

Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. James 1:27 


"I'm afraid we fail to visit orphans and widows in their trouble precisely because we are spotted by the world." R.C. Sproul Jr.

Would the babies in the womb at the abortion chamber be included?

Terri, absolutely. They are fatherless orphans.

I wonder if the widows would include abandoned women. Women whos husbands havent died but are gone nonetheless?
