The Declaration of Independence, our nation's “birth certificate” declares that we are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights. The first listed is "life." Yet in spite of this, the Supreme Court made abortion on demand the law of the land in 1973 and it is now the leading cause of death in America. More than 56 million babies have been denied their right to life since the infamous Roe v. Wade decision took effect.
In this powerful little book, Dr. D. James Kennedy and Dr. Jerry Newcombe address what the Bible says about life in contrast to the materialistic pagan view of life that too often prevails today. God has made each human being in His own image therefore every person has intrinsic value. He has given every human life an infinite worth.
Kennedy and Newcombe examine the implications of the biblical view of the sanctity of life in regard to issues like abortion, assisted suicide, and stem-cell research. It also explores lessons we should learn from Nazi Germany, where the Holocaust began with the killing of hundreds of thousands of the disabled and chronically ill. Once life is reduced to a utilitarian value, all life, both at the beginning and the end of the spectrum, is devalued.
