The Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, has launched a groundbreaking new pro-life exhibit addressing the question: “When does human life begin?”
The $1.2 million exhibit, titled “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made,” opened Sept. 25 and features life-like models depicting a baby’s development in the womb, 4D ultrasound videos, and biblical and scientific evidence that human life begins at fertilization.
Creation Museum CEO Ken Ham told The Christian Post that he, along with the staff at Answers in Genesis, the ministry behind the museum, wanted to build a pro-life exhibit that would impact people from all walks of life.
“As a ministry, we’re all about biblical authority and a Christian worldview,” he said. “Abortion is one of the key social issues of today, and we knew it would be an even bigger political issue this year because of the election. We wanted to make something that was powerful and stunning and would help people be more informed about this issue.”
The name of the exhibit, “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made,” comes from a phrase in Psalm 139:14: “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”
“The Bible is clear that all humans are made in the image of God and have inerrant value and worth,” Ham said. “We go through the biblical relevance of all of that.”
The exhibit not only focuses on what the Bible says about life, but also examines the science behind genetics, human reproduction, and sperm and egg fertilization. It offers evidence that an unborn baby is not merely an extension of a woman’s body, but a unique individual.
