Protection Against 'Preganancy Firing' in Yesha


By a vote of seven to one, the Ministerial Committee on Legislation endorsed, Sunday, a bill to apply protection for a pregnant woman against firing in Judea and Samaria (Shomron).

Member of Knesset Orit Struk reacted by saying endorsement of the law was the normal and appropriate action to recognize that it's unthinkable that human rights in general and the rights of women in particular stop at the 1949 Armistice Line.
