Israel’s Supreme Court ruled that Yitzhak Rabin’s assassin and his wife could try to have a child through artificial insemination. The court rejected an appeal seeking to block efforts by Yigal Amir and Larissa Trimbobler to conceive, saying that the right to become a parent is a basic human right. Other convicted murderers had been allowed to become parents, the court noted.
