I don't have very strong opinions either way about this

What?? The one issue where Jigsaw doesn't have an opinion? How can this even be possible?

I mean if it's not a matter of praising your jihadi friends, brother Jigsaw has no strong opinion.

I'm not a doctor and have no medical training whatsoever I'm not knowledgable enough to know about the development of mind and feelings in fetuses.

Do you have to be a medical doctor to know whether killing an adult is bad or not?

Do you have to be a gerontologist to know whether killing a old man is bad?

I would like to think that when a fetus is able to experience pain it is plain murder to subject it to that pain by causing it's destruction.

OK, I applaud you for saying at least this. Which is much more than your lefty friends will admit.

This is really a philosophical discussion about the essence of 'being'. At what stage is that fetus in it's mother's belly an actual being. ?  I don't know.

A man of philosophy. I wonder, dear Jigsaw, if you would consent to having your body torn limb from limb, to study the effects of pain, and also to delve into the nature of "being". 

All in the interests of Science, of course.

At the time of the gurus, abortion did not exist.

If you mean that tearing babies' limbs with forceps did not happen, OK, fine. However, that does not mean abortifacient herbs did not exist.

So by definition, sikhi does not have a clear position on abortion.

No.

No.Someone invents a new way of killing, and you say that "by definition" Sikhism doesn't have a clear position?

Is killing with chemical injections "by definition" unclear morally?

Is killing by electrocution "by definition" unclear? 

By running someone over with a car?

 In giving an answer, please refer to the precise slok that stipulates this or not unconditionally.

The very fact that you say that means you haven't a clue about what Gurbani is supposed to be. It's not a rulebook like the Old Testament.

It's a testament to Godliness. There's no way a Godly person could kill another being for their own benefit other than to save their life.

If that's your approach to Gurbani, you can go your entire life and not get the point.

Was abortion as we know it today (exterminating life in the womb) possible back in the day, or did they use to wait until the kid was born to get rid of it?

The preferred method of killing by paapis was to bury an undesired child (usually girl). Or just put her into a pot or something and not give sustenance.

Like some have mentioned the aatma/soul enters the baby at a particular time, 3 months? I guess that's when the baby goes into a medative state,  so it would be wrong to kill it after that stage, so what about before the stage when the soul enters  is it ok to abort it then?

I'm not talking about rape cases but more about parents who are told their baby is not well and will live a challenging life. 

Parents look after their child but who will look after Him/Her when the parents are dead

Where is your proof to say the soul enters at 3 months?

I want to ask these Sikh feminists who like murdering babies in the womb how are you different than the indian government who murdered innocent Sikhs in India?  Bhai Jaswant Singh Khalra went out to find out where the bodies were and gave the body back to the family. He risked his life to stop the murders of innocent Sikhs. You place his picture on your social media walls to further your cause of being 'human' rights activists.  What makes you think  Bhai Jaswant Singh Khalra would ever support murders like you?  Did he support the indian government for murdering Sikhs?  Taking a HUMAN life is murder.  True Sikhs and human right activists will never stand for the torture and murder of anyone innocent baby, no matter where the baby is.

    • The Mind is Jyot Saroop (Waheguru), but the mind is under the influence of five evils… Through Naam Simran( Rememberance), the mind will begin to detach from evil, and get back to its original form ( MANN TU JYOT SAROOP HEH)… Until the mind breaks free from the five evils, one will go through the cycle of paap and punn….which leads to Karma… Naam Simran destroys past karma, and prevents new karma coming into fruition… I did this, I did that… This non realisation of the Jyot Saroop gives rise to paap and Punn, which in turn gives birth to suffering and misery…
    • I agree we're not born with sin like the Christians think. Also I agree we have effects of karma. But Gurbani does state that the body contains both sin and charity (goodness): ਕਾਇਆ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਪਾਪੁ ਪੁੰਨੁ ਦੁਇ ਭਾਈ ॥ Within the body are the two brothers sin and virtue. p126 Actually, we do need to be saved. Gurbani calls this "udhaar" (uplift). Without Satguru, souls are liable to spiritual death: ਜਿਨਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨ ਭੇਟਿਓ ਸੇ ਭਾਗਹੀਣ ਵਸਿ ਕਾਲ ॥ p40 Those who have not met Satguru Purakh are unfortunate and liable to death. So, yeah, we do need to be saved, and Guru ji does the saving. The reason Satguru is the one to save is because God has given Satguru the "key" (kunji): ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਹਥਿ ਕੁੰਜੀ ਹੋਰਤੁ ਦਰੁ ਖੁਲੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਗੁਰੁ ਪੂਰੈ ਭਾਗਿ ਮਿਲਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੭॥ In the True Guru's hand is the key. None else can open the door. By perfect good fortune the Guru is met. p124
    • That's unfortunate to hear. Could you give any more information? Who was this "baba"? He just disappeared with people's money? Obviously, you should donate your money to known institutions or poor people that you can verify the need of through friends and family in Punjab.
    • Sangat ji,  I know a family who went Sevewal to do seva sometimes end of 2019. They returned last year in great dismay and heart broken.  To repent for their mistakes they approached panj pyaare. The Panj gave them their punishment / order to how t make it up which, with Kirpa, they fulfilled.  They were listening to a fake Baba who, in the end, took all the "Donations " and fled sometime over a year ago. For nearly 4 years this family (who are great Gursikhs once u get to know them) wasted time and effort for this fake Baba. NOT ONLY this one fam. But many, many did worldwide and they took their fam to do seva, in village Sevewal, city Jaitho in Punjab. In the end many families lost money in thousands being behind this Baba. The family, on return, had to get in touch with all the participants and told them to stop.  I am stating this here to create awareness and we need to learn from whom we follow and believe. It's no easy but if we follow the 3 S (Sangat, Simran and Seva) we will be shown the light. As I am writing this the family in question have been doing the same since 2008 onwards and they fell for this Baba... it is unbelievable and shocking.  This am writing in a nutshell as am at work on my break so not lengthy but it deserves a great length.  Especially the family in question, who shed light on youngsters about Sikhi 20 plus years!!
