How far would you go to have your husband's baby? Are you smart enough or brave enough to try to break through one of the toughest prison systems in the world?
Sure it sounds like a plot of some strange, future Oscar nominated movie, but according to NBC News savy Palestinian women are actually breaking their husband's sperm out of Israeli prisons in order to concieve. How are they smuggling sperm out of a prison where every visitor is subjected to several layers of security checks? They won't exactly tell. They don't want to stop the flow of sperm and baby dreams. What they will say is that is a very calculated and planned manuever that typical includes Mother-in-Laws and taxis waiting to speed them off to an IVF clinic.
The clinic won't confirm how procedures they have performed. Many of the Dads and Dads-to-be are servring multiple life sentences for terrorist acts. The clinic will only say that they are doing this to help the wives.
“We are doing this to help these ladies because we feel as doctors that the wives of prisoners pay a very high price,” Abu Khaizaran said without revealing how many other such procedures he had conducted. “She has to wait for her husband, sometimes she can spend her lovely youth just waiting. And by the time her husband is out, many of them will not be able to have babies.”
