lets say that a little girl named Martha is born in a hospital and one of the doctors in the hospital thinks shes so adorable she asks her parents to clone her. the parents agree, the doctor becomes the surrogate mother for the clone who is born nine months later and is named Darla. 19 yrs. later when the girls are 20 and 21 respectively they meet at college and fall in love. Martha's parents argue that the two are biologically twin sisters and thus should no be in a relationship. Darla's mother however disagrees and says as they were raised separately and cant have kids together it is fine. who's side do you chose in this debate? and why? (",)

This is interesting. I still feel like the two girls are biologically related. If they will be in a relationship, I think, they won't be bearing any kids since both are she, and yes, they can have a relationship. All in all, it will end on the choices they make and as external to them we can only but support them.

It doesn't matter that they were raised separately even if they were on different sides of the world apart...they still have the same genetic makeup and are kind to each other. If they were male and female they could not and should not reproduce or have a child. You are speaking retrospectively about two girls. They would not be able to have children together as one is not a male.
