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.
Your sperm, your child. Seems like a very basic concept.
The article states that it was not the lesbian couple that demanded child support from their sperm donor but the Kansas department of Families and Children. The lesbian couple actually supports their sperm donor in his fight not to pay child support and only provided his name when the Kansas department of Families and Children demanded it.
I say that a sperm donor who signs a contract forfeiting his parental rights (such as visitation), as this man did, should not be on the hook for child support. If these two women want to be parents they should assume full financial responsibility for the child, as they did until the Kansas welfare people started interfering. The article also says that because Kansas does not recognize same-sex marriage same-sex partners cannot be held responsible for child support, so that’s probably why the welfare department’s going after the sperm donor.
I really wish people would read the story before commenting....
