All this Yogi Bhajan nonsense about the soul entering the fetus of the mother at 120 days is NOT based on any scientific evidence or religious history. There is nothing in Guru Granth Sahib which states that the soul enters the unborn child on the 120th day of pregnancy and you'll never find anything contained in Siri Guru Granth Sahib or in the history of the Sikh Gurus, which justifies the killing of an unborn child.

Sikhs accept that life begins at conception (one reference is found on page 74 of the Guru Granth Sahib) (BBC).

Sikhism and abortion.

Abortion is generally forbidden in Sikhism, as it interferes in the creative work of God - who created everything and is present in every being.

Most Sikhs accept that life begins at conception (one reference is found on page 74 of the Guru Granth Sahib).

So if conception has taken place, it would be a sin to destroy life and hence deliberate miscarriage or abortion is forbidden.

The Sikh code of conduct does not deal with abortion (or indeed many other bioethical issues).

Despite this theoretical viewpoint, abortion is not uncommon among the Sikh community in India, and there is concern that the practice of aborting female embryos because of a cultural preference for sons is growing.

Why did SikhNet change pic in their article promoting the killing of unborn children when Sikh Net realized Mother Teresa was against abortions?

Gurumustuk over at SikhNet must have realized that Mother Teresa was against abortions because Sikh Net just deleted the pic of Mother Teresa in SikhNet's article that justifies the killing of unborn children. The secular photo SikhNet is now using shows a bunch of western women who look like they're posing for a group snap with a multinational corporation. http://www.sikhnet.com/news/dignity-mother
