When Does Life Begin?

This is Ken Ham, CEO of Answers in Genesis , Ark Encounter and Creation Museum.


When the CEO of the abortion giant Planned Parenthood was retiring, she was asked when she believes life begins. She said it depends. She thinks it’s completely arbitrary … and depends on what the mother thinks.

But when we start with God’s Word, we get the correct answer to when life starts. The Bible tells us God is the author of life. He’s made us in his image, fearfully and wonderfully. According to the Bible, life begins at the moment of fertilization.

And scientifically this makes sense. All the genetic information needed to create a unique human being is right there from the moment of fertilization. So abortion is actually killing a human being.
