1. There are almost a dozen of the "laboratories of democracy" that have opted to allow gay- or same-sex marriage. 2. Folks who love each other can promise 'til death do us part'....and may comport in that manner! 3. Just as heterosexual couples opt for children, so do large numbers of these folks. No doubt, it is assumed by the couples that this may be accomplished, perhaps by adoptions, or by surrogate mothers in the case of the male-male marriages. 4.And, of course, sperm donors in the case of Lesbian marriage. After all, how tough is it to find a male sperm donor? Paws down. But...not so quick.... 5. "A Kansas man who donated sperm to a lesbian couple in 2009 is now being taken to court by the state to pay child support. 6. The bizarre case began in 2009 when William Marotta answered a Craigslist ad and donated sperm to Angela Bauer and Jennifer Schreiner. a. Schreiner bore the child, and Marotta relinquished all parental rights. 7. ...the longtime couple split and Bauer, who had supported the family, could no longer work because of an illness. The former couple turned to the state to obtain health insurance.... 8. ...the state subsequently demanded the sperm donors name to pursue him for the cost. 9. Kansas lawyers contend Marottas agreement with the couple is invalidand therefore he can be held responsible" Kansas sperm donor: William Marotta sued by state after helping lesbians have baby. 10. "But because they didn't go through a doctor, the state argues, Marotta is the legal father and should be responsible for about $6,000 in public assistance Schreiner received to help care for the child. The state also wants him to pay child support, though neither woman is asking for money." Kansas Sperm Donor Law On Child Support Payment Is Outdated: Attorney So....who is the only beneficiary in this tale of woe? Hint: second word in #9! Wait....I take that back. Whoever winds up with a baby is a beneficiary, as well.
