And therein lies the problem.

You are giving someone permission to forgive/pardon. Therefore they have permission to.

The better question is "does saving a life undo a murder". The answer is no. But we can still forgive if someone honestly changes. Unlike the opposite, "does saving a life allow murder", in which case we generally do not see that as correct!!!
