You Shall Not Murder!

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


Nearly half of professing believers in the U.S. think the Bible is ambiguous on abortion. So I’d like to share some very unambiguous Bible verses with them!

Genesis 9:6 Whoever sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed, for God made man in his own image.

Proverbs 6[16–17] The Lord hates … hands that shed innocent blood.

Exodus 20:13: You shall not murder.

When the sperm and egg come together, a person is formed … with a unique combination of genetic information. Nothing new is added—everything that makes you is there from that moment.

Yes, a fertilized egg is a person made in God’s image. And the Lord hates the shedding of innocent blood.
