Does the Bible Value Unborn Life?

This is Ken Ham, and our life-size Ark is under full construction and opening soon.


Many people argue that abortion isn’t murder. They claim it is just the removal of a clump of cells and tissues. But that is not how God’s Word sees it!

There is a verse in Exodus 21 that talks about people who are fighting and injure a pregnant woman so that her baby is born. If no harm comes to the child, the person responsible must pay a fine. But if the baby is hurt, then it is life for life, eye for eye, wound for wound.

God’s Word is clear, then, that an unborn human is just as valuable as any other human life. God doesn’t see a distinction between the two. All human life is sacred and made in His image from the moment of fertilization. Abortion? It’s actually murder.
