We Are All Unique Creations

on August 3, 2023

God has uniquely created every human being. At the very moment the sperm fertilizes the egg, an individual human possessing his or her own combination of DNA, half from the father and half from the mother, begins developing inside the mother.*

Far from being merely a clump of cells, a blob of tissue, or a parasite inside the mother, the tiny person in the womb displays incredible complexity and purposeful design. The process of human development from fertilized egg to birth is a matchless wonder, revealing the Creator’s awe-inspiring creativity and care.

When Does Human Life Begin?

This question lies at the heart of some highly contentious issues in our world. From a medical standpoint, there is only one logical answer: life begins at fertilization, when the chromosomes from the sperm and the egg combine, forming a genetically unique individual.

This was traditionally called the moment of conception, but in the past few decades, conception has often been redefined to refer to the processes from fertilization through implantation of the embryo in the womb.

Our medical knowledge of this process has caused the debate to shift from “When does life begin?” to “When does personhood begin?” or “When do the unborn feel pain?” But these questions avoid the real issue. Whether one refers to the unborn as an embryo, fetus, or baby, we learn from God’s Word that a human being made in the image of God is growing and developing within the mother from the moment of fertilization.
