Forty Days of Life

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Part 4



This is Ken Ham, publisher of the award-winning magazine for the whole family, Answers.


Over the next two weeks, we’re taking a quick tour through a nine-month process—the development of a baby in the womb.

Today, we’re stopping at just 40 days of life. Baby is now the size of a raspberry and already has a sense of touch. Baby’s facial features are forming, and tiny arms and legs have grown. Wow!

Sadly, many children won’t make it past a few weeks of life as their lives are taken through abortion. People often see these tiny lives as “in the way,” and many women are pressured, often by the father, to end their baby’s life.

But an unborn baby isn’t something we can just throw away. That baby is a precious person, made in God’s very image.
