Although the Assembly of Jerusalem is not opposed to progressive science, it insists that any type of science be ethical and God centered in all it does and proclaims.
The Patriarchate adamantly opposes and believes that human cloning is an abomination in the sight of the Lord. Such procedures are morally untenable; in addition, the physical danger to the mother and the potential physical malformation of the product or baby produced must be reviewed. If the product or baby is brought to term and a healthy live birth, the question of psychological problems and genetic consequences that are sure to be encountered must be reviewed. The Patriarchate insists on the full enforcement of stricter laws concerning human cloning.
