Family of soldier killed on Gaza border looking for surrogate mother

Barel’s parents, an IDF soldier who was shot and killed by a terrorist, have recently been struggling through the media over a request to use his sperm in order to produce “continuity.”

The law in Israel does yet not allow the use of the seed of a dead person for the parents if they request it, though a bill to do so was passed in the Knesset.

A bill that would allow bereaved parents of soldiers to use the sperm of their dead children passed a preliminary reading in the Ministerial Committee for Legislation last week, giving hope to parents fighting to become grandparents. The proposed bill, known as the continuity bill, was approved by a consensus of 52 in favor.
