Posted on 12/31/2012 8:39:51 AM PST by redreno
A Kansas sperm donor who was ordered to pay child support for the baby he helped a lesbian couple conceive plans to fight back in court, and suggested he might be a victim of bias against same-sex parenting.
William Marotta told FoxNews.com he might never have agreed to provide sperm to Angela Bauer and her former partner, Jennifer Schreiner, had he known the legal morass that awaited him after responding to the womens Craigslist ad for a donor in March 2009. The Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) recently filed a child support claim against Marotta after the couple filed for state assistance this year, leading the department to demand they provide the donors name so it could collect

Let this be a lesson to all; never help a liberal/Leftist of any stripe. They will bite you in the A$$!
Just how was this sperm donated? Very interested in this case. Wouldn’t a surrogate mother also be I jeopardy? Do it yourself warning...
Make him pay. Your sperm,your child.
Well, in fairness to the lezbos, it sounds like they were forced to provide the sperm donor’s name. I see plenty of blame to go around here...the lesbians for trying to raise a child without a dad, the donor for answering a craigslist ad and not thinking of the possible consequences, the agency for demanding his name and going after him for child support, etc. It’s just a mess all around! Let this be a lesson to everyone not to even engage in things like this. Don’t bring any children into this world unless you’re in a traditional, man/woman marriage. But that’s not P.C. anymore.
If the couple has split and one of them is demanding child support, it should come from the former partner. I thought this gay stuff was about equality and being treated like everyone else.
Always think things through. Consider the worst possible consequence.

“Dont bring any children into this world unless youre in a traditional, man/woman marriage. But thats not P.C. anymore.”
Agreed. I had a job once where one of the managers(a woman who looked, dressed and sounded like a middle school boy) and her “partner” were having a turkey baster child. They put all sorts of social pressure upon us to applaud and support them for it. I never said a word until she brought the poor child who didn’t asked to come into the world that way to the office. All I said was that the baby was cute but I never applauded the way he was conceived.
Where ever the UK goes the US soon follows.

Swedish sperm donor must pay child support -report
STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - A court in Sweden has ruled that a man who
donated sperm for artificial insemination, enabling a lesbian couple to
have three children, must pay child support after the two women
separated, according to a Swedish newspaper.
The regional daily Nerikes Allehanda said on its Internet website a
county court ruled that the man was undoubtedly the children’s
biological father and hence obliged to pay child support of 2,838
crowns per month after the women’s 10-year relationship broke up.
The verdict poses a legal dilemma, however, because under Swedish law a
sperm donor is not regarded as the legal parent of children conceived
with the help of his semen. Sperm donors, however, are normally
strictly anonymous, while in this case the man was a friend of the
couple and his identity as the father is in no doubt.
The man has appealed.
Does he get visiting rights? Custody?
I don’t remember asking anyone anything before I came into this world...
They were able to adopt 8 children but married couples must jump through hoops and pay out their noses to adopt just one.
I suspect how he made the deposit is how they managed to get $upport.
Your sperm, your child. Seems like a very basic concept.
say goodbye to the sperm bank industry
When you dance with the Devil - you get burnt.
Good for you! You handled that ‘mess’ admirably.
“Bauer, 40, and Schreiner, 34, had been together for eight years and previously adopted other children when Marotta responded to their ad and later provided sperm used to artificially inseminate Schreiner, who could not be reached for comment Monday.”
If they are no longer able to financially provide for the children they adopted, those children should be removed from their care. Then maybe they can afford the one they had ‘naturally’.
If you donate a car to a needy family and they have an accident are you responsible?
So two lezbo’s without the ability to support themselves want to have a baby and make the state pay them ‘assistance’?
Take the kid away from ALL of these losers
Giving sperm so two women can play mommie is unnatural. No one should be surprised when it leads to absurd outcomes.
he is NOT anonymous.
this is the legal equivalent as recreational sex with a bonus.
The child has ONE father and ONE mother. PERIOD. end of story.
the woman’s recreational sex partner is of no consequence to the child.
Totally agree. I’ve never been for this type of manipulation of nature.
From now on, post warnings similar to the Surgeon General’s cigarette warnings on every surface in a sperm bank’s spaces, including the collection cup.
This “couple” may do the impossible: Make Octomom look sane.
Of course not. He's a wallet with legs.
I was reading about this guy yesterday. Things were going fine until the lesbos decided to climb on the government gravy train.
The kid has three daddies and no mommy.
I hope there’s a Statute of Limitations!
The most confusing day of the year for Obama’s base?
No way tired of the fleacing of men by woman due to their own actions....
There is a simple fix to this...require the entity providing the insemination procedure to be bonded, so that when parents of the artificial child stick their hands out for $ support, it’s not the taxpayer that has to pay.
Without fertility services provided by someone who makes money on the deal, the artificial child would not be possible. If they knew beforehand that they may be on the hook for the cost of raising the kid, they would be much more careful about who they did the procedure on....or if they even engaged in that business at all.
OH GOOD LORD post a warning before viewing...the blood is shooting out of my eyes...
“Its just a mess all around! Let this be a lesson to everyone not to even engage in things like this. Dont bring any children into this world unless youre in a traditional, man/woman marriage. But thats not P.C. anymore.”
I guess in a nutshell, what you are saying is: “It’s not nice to mess with Mother Nature is it!” FWIW, I hope the moron has to pay until the child is 18! Dumb moves have consequences. The child at least deserves a chance to grow up without all the welfare hassles.
You should consult an attorney and it would be beat to sell it for one dollar and make sure the title is transferred before you let them take possession.
Best post so far on the matter. This is where we end up when children become a commodity like a car to be sold, traded, or donated. They are aborted, conceived in test tubes, "borrowed" via sperm donation, and all other sorts of "artificial" means. When life is no longer considered a sacred gift from above, its value diminishes. I'm not blaming Baynative, this is just where we are at this point, making comparisions between children and cars.
Everything about this story is horrifying. How sad and pathetic it is, but the biggest victims are the children who have been wedged into the misfit world of these two women. Who can honestly say the life the adoption agencies, social workers, and sperm donor placed these kids into is really in their best interest? Those kids are doomed to be losers before they even take their first step. Look at those two women (in post above), would YOU want to be their kid?
Why don’t they get the child support from her ‘partner’?
After all, they cry like Kansas City fa@@ots to be equal.
Or is it just the good parts- wedding cake, publicity and ins benefits.
They should go after Octomom’s sperm donor for child support for her 14 kids. One man fathered them all.
You know of course that if your wife cheats on you and has another man's child, you are still on the hook for child support, right?
You mean like, with a turkey baster?
Why go to Craig's List? Just use David Crosby because that all worked out so well ... oh wait. Nevermind.
Life is just NOT fair, is it? You do what you are supposed to do ... get married (man/woman) and you get nailed if the wife cheats & has a kid that’s not yours.
I still have little sympathy for anyone answering Craigslist ads for sperm ... he didn’t even take the $50 that was offered ... I guess he’s big on charitable ‘contributions’. It’s all just “nuts”.
No wonder they are lesbians, no man would have them.
Good grief, that looks like what you’d get if Rubens had painted nightmares!
The guy is an idiot. No way would I allow my sperm to get anywhere near those two!
My thoughts, as well.
