Thanks all for your replies.
Free will is a power given to us, and with power comes responsibilities.
There are many areas which there needs no laws - punishment upon individuals within societies. It is based purely upon one's rationalizing of
situation through logic and reason. A simple example - littering. It is a free will, but should it be done?
Must certainly not, because if one litters, everyone else will do the same, and in time planet Earth will be piled up with rubbish hindering our
movement to progress.
But still, are laws the answer? No they are not, for there still many who litter freely, expecting the govt to clean up, neglecting the fact that
hiring such contractors brings costs that will drive up our taxes eventually, ensuffering all.
But if everyone within society can be responsible, and taught responsibilities, there need not be laws save for critical issues such murder, theft,
adultry, etc - the 7 deadly sins that are the flaws of humanity, inherent is us despite time and education due to our barbaric origins.
Similarly, can human laws protect abortions?
No they can't, for there are illegal ways to obtain abortions, and more worse will be to impose upon our women not to abort even if she cannot cope
without help or support from others-her family and society, which may lead to a loss of 2 precious lives - mother and child.
Mainstream religions - Judaism, Islam, Christianity, have a role to play to prevent abortion. Demanding a law to ban is not the answer. Might does not
and had never worked before and not now. To believe so would be only to delude ourselves, or be misused by the greedy to divide and conquer us without
solving the deeper underlying issues, resulting in only MORE abortions.
It is up to mainstream religious leaders rather to work on the hearts and minds of its congregation NOT to abort the child, as well as societies to
get its act together to give families security and future to families to want to procreate.
Have faith - logic and reason rules the heart and minds of mankind. Compassion for the weak minded uplifts and progresses all, for not all will take
advantage of kindness and forgiveness. Authoritarianism will only create more rebels, usually most of them without a cause other than to hate being
told what to do. or being misused by others for different agendas.
