How could it happen?

Solitary confinement just isn’t what it used to be, at least in Vietnam:

HANOI (Reuters) – A death-row inmate held in solitary confinement in Vietnam for almost a year is pregnant and is seeking a pardon to give birth, a newspaper reported on Thursday.

The Lao Dong (Labour) newspaper quoted a police doctor as saying tests in September confirmed that convicted heroin trafficker Nguyen Thi Oanh, 39, was then 11 weeks pregnant.

The report said it was the first time that a death-row prisoner had become pregnant in Vietnam and that police were investigating how it had happened.

Oanh’s husband was serving a jail sentence at another prison in another province, the newspaper said.

I’m gonna assume that Oanh’s husband can’t defy the laws of physics, so perhaps there’s some other answer to this vexing mystery. And since this is an atheist country, the old transporter beam theory of conception probably doesn’t apply, either.

Hmmm. I wonder.
