Tel Aviv [Israel]June 28 (ANI/TPS): A Palestinian detainee at Ramon Prison in southern Israel was caught by Israeli guards on Tuesday while trying to smuggle a vial of another prisoner’s sperm, the Israel Prison Service announced.

The bottle was found hidden in a Palestinian living in a correctional facility outside the walls of Ramon Prison.

Prisoners who provided sperm have been identified and placed in solitary confinement.

The issue of babies born to prisoners through smuggled sperm is a sensitive topic in Palestine. More than 100 babies are said to have been conceived with semen smuggled from Israeli prisons. The prisoner’s wife impregnated herself through in vitro fertilization.

A successful pregnancy this way can cost at least $10,000, often much higher. Palestinian clinics have been known to provide IVF services free of charge if the prisoner is serving a long sentence. Fatwas, or Muslim religious rulings, issued by Palestinian clerics allow the practice.

Israelis tend to view the children as illegitimate, saying sperm cannot survive the prison-to-clinic journey unless under special conditions, and that the children are often the product of another father.

The first Palestinian baby was reportedly conceived and born in this way in 2012. (ANI/TPS)
