Surely its against any relegion. But more important, its is against god's-will.

This suleman (ghost tape) was listening to. At the end, sangat was like to ghost that there are cases where people did operation to become female (you know plastic surgery) in america and then they say sceince can do everything.

Ghost was like ask them who put the light(jot) in them??? can science do that by themselves????

Its all vaheguroo/allah/ishwar/akaal will.

Why is it against any Religion or Godz will ? What are pros and cons in Human Cloning ? Letz discuss it.

Potential Medical Benefits

• The possibility that through cloning technology we will learn to renew activity of damaged cells by growing new cells and replacing them.

• The capability to create humans with identical genetic makeup to act as organ donors for each other, i.e., kidney and bone marrow transplants.

• The benefit of studying cell differentiation at the same time that cloning is studied and developed.

• Sterile couples will be able to have offspring will have either the mother’s or father’s genetic pattern.

Potential Harms and Disadvantages

• The possibility of compromising individualities.

• Loss of genetic variation.

• A “black market†of fetuses may arise from desirable donors that will want to be able to clone themselves, i.e., movie stars, athletes, and others.

• Technology is not well developed. It has a low fertility rate. In cloning Dolly, 277 eggs were used, 30 started to divide, nine induced pregnancy, and only one survived to term (Nash).

• Clones may be treated as second-class citizens.

• Unknown psychosocial harms with impacts on the family and society.

You have touched a topic which needs a big discussion, However As far as SGGS is concernd the cloning fulfils the law of science and SGGS (jaisae maath pithaa bin baal n hoee... Without a mother or father there is no child;[bhav arth:- not the traditional father and mother (physical) instead scientific {This technique which is intended to produce a duplicate of an existing animal. It has been used to clone a sheep and other mammals. The DNA from an ovum is removed and replaced with the DNA from a cell removed from an adult animal. Then, the fertilized ovum, now called a pre-embryo, is implanted in a womb and allowed to develop into a new animal }.]) so sikhi has no fear of cloning and accepts it as it fulfils the law of nature.

As you have noticed that there is no magic going on here rather it fulfils the laws of regular birth cycle the scientists have just discovered an alternative way.

Its like apple use to fall down all the times from tree but it was Newton who discovered the law of gravitation meaning the law was always there but got discovered by Newton but not made by Newton, similarly the doctors discovered the cloning process not invented it.

SGGS always supports the Universal truth and nothing in SGGS contradicts with law of nature.

If you say human cloning is against god's will and therefore against sikhi, the same principle could be applied to the terminally ill or disabled person. For example, it was waheguru's will that they were born that way but yet they take all kinds of medicine and are constantly looking for ways to alter waheguru's will? But the argument doesnt stop there, it could be advanced by saying the invention of that medicine to cure the disabled was also waheguru's will and so too was cloning? Nicks.

SGPC and AKJ are actually at the avant garde of human cloning. For them we're all the same and should dress the same and behave the same and think the same ooppps no, we shouldn't think at all :twisted:
