Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked is not backing down from her proposal to imprison unborn babies, despite the opposition of the Attorney-General, The Kibbitzer has learned.
The proposal is included in a new Sentencing Reform bill currently being prepared by ministry officials. Under the bill, fetuses carried by terrorist mothers could be eligible for imprisonment if they are deemed to have inherited the “terrorist gene.”
“We’ll develop a surgical technique to go in and put an electronic bracelet on the ankle of the fetus,” Shaked told The Kibbitzer. “That way, it won’t be able to escape.”
“Then, after it’s born, it will join the rest of the terrorists rotting in jail.”
“Imprisoning unborn children is not how a civilized country should behave,” Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein said in response. “People should not be eligible for imprisonment until after they’ve finished breast feeding.”
Shaked is best known for proposing compulsory Holocaust education for unborn babies in 2007. “If they can listen to Mozart, they can listen to Hatikva and learn the basics of anti-Semitism,” she said at the time.
