Why Does Life Have Value?


Part 5



This is Ken Ham, inviting you to have an encounter with God’s Word at the Ark Encounter.


When parents find out their unborn child has a disability, they’re often told to have an abortion. Now, sadly, many follow this deadly advice. But those who are pro-life fight against this practice, often by pointing to the fulfilling lives that many people with disabilities can lead. What’s wrong with this approach?

Well, it’s true many people with disabilities lead fulfilling lives—and bring joy to others. And we should point that out. But that isn’t what gives human life value.

Ultimately, we have value for one reason: we’re created in the image of God. And we should always go back to that—every human life has unique value because we are image bearers of our Creator.
