Even if copied in the exact state, its still a copy. If this could be done without destroying the original, the concept would be more clear. What materializes 'over there' is a copy of you. I might shake his hand but wouldn't volunteer to be killed knowing that my copy will live on.
There's the point where religion and philosophy enter the room. IF there is a soul, IF there is a god, then your consciousness will survive the process and transfer from A to B. I don't think god would allow humans to kill themselves and copy their souls at the same time. That would be pretty inflationary.
