Category:General Sikhism
Date Posted:Wednesday, 2/21/2001 8:51 AM MST

Someone asked what our Great Guru jee has said about abortion, the reply given was that it was a personal issue. Would you agree with the following :

a) Guru Granth Sahib jee teaches us that life begins when the sperm and egg join.

b) When we receive amrit, we are told not to kill infants or to keep the company of people that kill their infants. (Kuri-mar)

a + b = Guru ji is against abortition?
The Siri Guru Granth Sahib does not speak on abortion. It was not an issue as it has become these days. True, we do not kill babies, but the sperm and egg meeting is not an infant. The soul does not enter the developing foetus until the 120th day. This is the time that it contains real life.
