Kynesha Dhanoolal, the widow of a soldier killed in Iraq this week, has had to go to court to secure a restraining order against her mother-in-law to prevent the embalming of her husband’s body before she can harvest her husband sperm. This posthumous insemination is becoming more common with the advancement of science and the law.
Army Sgt. Dayne Darren Dhanoolal, 26, was killed while driving a Husky mine-detecting vehicle. He hit a mine. he was driving in Iraq. He was a combat engineer with Fort Benning’s 2nd Battalion, 69th Armor Regiment.
He died intestate (without a will) but designated his mother as the person authorized to handle his remains upon death.
