|The Pregnant Wife of a Kohen in a Cemetery|
May the expectant wife of a Kohen enter a cemetery? She may be carrying a boy who is a Kohen and may become Tame'i to a Me'is! The Shach in Yoreh Deah says in the name of a Roke'ach that she may enter the cemetery because of the logic of Safek-Safeka (a double Safek). The child may be a girl and even if it is a boy, he might be a Nefel (a child who doesn't live thirty days.
