Judge rules Kan. sperm donor owes child support
MSN News ^ | 1/24/14

A man who provided sperm to a lesbian couple in response to an online ad is the father of a child born to one of the women and must pay child support, a Kansas judge ruled Wednesday.

Topeka resident William Marotta had argued that he had waived his parental rights and didn't intend to be a father. Shawnee County District Court Judge Mary Mattivi rejected that claim, saying the parties didn't involve a licensed physician in the artificial insemination process and thus Marotta didn't qualify as a sperm donor, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported.

"In this case, quite simply, the parties failed to perform to statutory requirement of the Kansas Parentage Act in not enlisting a licensed physician at some point in the artificial insemination process, and the parties' self-designation of (Marotta) as a sperm donor is insufficient to relieve (Marotta) of parental right and responsibilities to the child," Mattivi wrote.

The Kansas Department for Children and Families filed the case in October 2012 seeking to have Marotta declared the father of a child born to Jennifer Schreiner in 2009. The state was seeking to have Marotta declared the child's father so he can be held responsible for about $6,000 in public assistance the state provided, as well as future child support.

Marotta opposed that action, saying he had contacted Schreiner and her partner at the time, Angela Bauer, in response to an ad they placed on Craigslist seeking a sperm donor. He said he signed a contract waiving his parental rights and responsibilities.

Attorneys for the state contended the contract was moot because the parties didn't follow a 1994 Kansas law requiring a licensed physician to perform the artificial insemination when donors were involved.

Well, he had fun providing the "raw materials" needed to make that baby. Proving once again, no good deed goes unpunished.

It probably wasn’t the woman.

Personally, I think this is good. No one, but no one, except the judge was thinking about the child. That child has rights! And maybe this will help put an end to this sperm donor nonsense. Men (and women) should only bring children into this world they are ready and willing and wanting to take responsibility for.

It was after the lezbos broke up and went on public assistance that the state went after un-approved donor dad.

the whole things a mess, but donor dad should be and is on the hook. IMHO

No clean way out of this mess, but it ain’t the kid’s fault.

We wouldn’t be having all this reproductive nonsense if society would simply hold to the notion that the people who make a baby are jointly responsible for the baby, no matter what the circumstances are of the baby’s being made. This whole notion of one party abnegating responsibility by way of a contract with the other party is like two people agreeing to rob a bank but only one of them having to assume the criminal liability.

I am not sure that it is a lot of fun considering the mechanical unromantic manner it is done in a strange room & a time constraint.

My prayers for the child that is caught in this debacle. Kid has no say in being born.

I was going to say “And he didn’t even have any fun”. After you posted the pics I know I would have had more fun with some lotion and a cup.

You raise an interesting point.

If a lesbian couple adopt a child, then divorce, surely they both still share financial responsibility?

Well, if you consider jacking off to be that much fun, haha.
If I were going to be a donor, I would require the deed to be real.

Yes, assuming that society is so warped that a lesbian couple is permitted to adopt a child.

Perhaps not, if you got a gander at what you were doing it with!

Absolutely. That should be the legal test, not whether there was a licensed physician involved.

Gotta say, agree with the Judgy here. There is proper legal process in Kansas for the act of donating and waiving parental responsibility. These clowns went the turkey baster route. He was stupid for doing it and they lezzies were wanting a kid on the cheap. They were apparently poorly funded as well as ugly.

Are these examples of Kansas “lipstick lesbians”?
Forget the kid! I feel sorry for the poor sperm cells who weren’t given a choice in the insemination process!

Hardly a good deed if you consider what conditions that child would endure even under the best of circumstances.

Question: Should the donor preserve a copy of the magazine used to achieve said specimen for the child’s scrapbook !!

Actually, this was a lotion-and-cup operation. The article said he delivered THREE CUPS of semen to the women. With that much of his semen in the wild, he’s probably gonna end up like Abraham, descendents too numerous to count. Wait till THOSE child support bills start rolling in. Not sure why he thought they needed three cups, unless he was just having a good time and hated to stop!

Agreed. If it works as a deterrent to sperm donation it can only be a good thing.
