The headline of a BBC a story a few weeks ago (December 14, 2018) asked: "What chance has NASA of finding life on Mars?" This is the question that's gripping scientists today. It's a worthy goal to find an answer. At the same time, there's a terrible irony because as we search for the possibility of life on other planets we disregard the smallest of lives on earth. More specifically, unborn human life in the womb. Science tells us that the unborn in the womb are alive and that they are unique beings even at the microscopic cellular stage. And we aren't just talking about any life, but we are talking about human life which is infinitely valuable—the same kind of life filled with potential and wonder and creativity that the scientists looking for life on other planets possess.
