When Does Life Begin?


Part 1



This is Ken Ham, on a mission to call the church back to God’s Word and the gospel.


In the United States, about sixty million babies have been murdered by abortion. Sixty million. For some people, that’s heartbreaking. Others shrug and say abortion’s a woman’s right, it’s just healthcare. Or: it’s “my body, my choice.”

But what matters is what God thinks—not society. God’s Word says we’re made in God’s image, fearfully and wonderfully knit together, and known by God before we were even conceived.

From a biblical and biological perspective, life beings at the moment of fertilization. So taking that life is murder.

But praise God, there’s forgiveness for sin—even the sin of abortion.
