At a time in Britain when abortion was still illegal, it was discovered that yearly, more women died from abortion due to going about it the wrong ways. So the government resolved that if they remove the Law biding abortion, they could put an end to this occurrence. And so they did.
For the first five years, when abortion was declared Legal, there was an uncontrollable high rate of abortion. But as the years went by, records now show that the rate of abortion has reduced drastically in Britain. And death rate due to abortion has also reduced.
Please before you ask, I am not in support of abortion because I for one know that it is against God’s will. But the angle I am coming from is this; that as long as you put a “LAW” on something, it only causes it to abound the more.
The human nature has surpassed the restrictions of Law. God discovered this and He resolved that the law could not conquer sin. Freedom would. To us, we may be tempted to think that Freedom is too weak counter sin, because there is so much Grace involved. But only in such grace can we truly set our soul free from the hold of sin and death. And even when it seems that sin abounds, grace did much more abound. Sin may only last for a while, because it slowly shrinks as the soul responds to power of Grace.
John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
Romans 5:13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
Romans 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
Live according to grace.
