Larissa Trimbobler, Yigal Amir's wife, is scheduled to give birth to the couple's son on October 24, the national memorial day for late prime minister Yitzhak Rabin, who was murdered by Amir 12 year ago.
The date of the delivery hardly seems like a coincidence, and it appears that Trimbobler had pre-planned it during her fertility treatments.
Trimbobler is set to arrive at the Bikur Holim hospital on the day of the planned delivery and undergo a gynecological checkup.
Sources at the hospital expressed concern that the mother-to-be may ask to induce labor in order to give birth on the same day, saying they are not permitted to decline such a request.
"Until today, no request to induce labor or undergo a cesarean section has been received from Trimbobler," a hospital official stressed.
Trimbobler herself also denied allegations that she has asked to undergo a cesarean section. "All this talk… is nonsense. I have no such intentions and I don't know who reports this. I'm supposed to give birth naturally.
"Regarding 12 Cheshvan (the Hebrew date of the planned delivery), I don't intend to comment. I do not confirm nor deny."
