In this article, published in Tablet Magazine in June 2011, I explore Israel's fertility policies within the context of the seemingly paradoxical decision to keep  Yitzhak Rabin’s assassin, Yigal Amir, in solitary confinement for more than 15 years while allowing him to father a child. I argue that in the context of Israel's exceptionally pro-natalist fertility policies, this seeming paradox actually makes sense.
