A majority of Americans no longer see life as sacred, with liberals the least likely to view it that way. The Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University found in its “American Worldview Inventory 2020” of 2,000 adults that a mere 39 percent of respondents agree with the statement that “human life is sacred.” The dichotomy between conservatives and liberals was great, with 57 percent of conservatives agreeing that life is sacred, but only 24 percent of liberals saying so. The group most likely to see the inherent value in human life was adults with a biblical worldview at 93 percent, followed by born-again Christians (60 percent), Republicans (53 percent), Pentecostals (46 percent), mainline Protestants (45 percent) and Catholics (43 percent).
