There is a higher law than government.

There is nothing inherently moral about government (quite the opposite is often true, in my opinion). History is replete with tyrannical governments violating basic human dignities. To try to justify something as ethically acceptable simply because it is legal is dangerously absurd. 

There is a higher law. There is a natural law. And, I’m not afraid to say, there is a God.

 

By the way, I am NOT suggesting that laws of the land aren’t important. Nope. No way. One of the articles of faith of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints says “we believe in…honoring, obeying, and sustaining the law” (source).  Buuuuuuut, when people try to justify heinous acts (such as abortion) as okay because it’s legal in our country, they fail to recognize (among other things) how many times we’ve gotten it wrong before. Something being written into law is a terrible measurement of if something is morally conscionable or not.

There is nothing inherently moral about government.

There is a higher law.
