Topekan William Marotta sought only to become a sperm donor — but now the state of Kansas is trying to have him declared a father.
Nearly four years ago, Marotta donated sperm in a plastic cup to a lesbian couple after responding to an ad they had placed on Craigslist.
Marotta and the women, Topekans Angela Bauer and Jennifer Schreiner, signed an agreement holding him harmless for support of the child, a daughter Schreiner bore after being artificially inseminated.
But the Kansas Department for Children and Families is now trying to have Marotta declared the 3-year-old girl’s father and forced to pay child support. The case is scheduled for a Jan. 8 hearing in Shawnee County District Court.
Enumerating the suck…
1) Lesbians advertising for sperm and getting it.
2) A man willing to father children with the knowledge he will never see the children or be their father.
3) An contract that stated that he would have no parental rights whatsoever with the child or children that is blatantly and cynically disregarded.
4) The good will of the donor – he was paid nothing – completely betrayed.
5) The donor must now pay, at minimum, the cost of defending himself and, perhaps, tens of thousands in child support.
6) A court system that tolerates this sort of jackassery.
7) An MSM journalist with no intellectual curiosity as to what happened to the other lesbian and why she isn’t, evidently, being sued for child support.
8 ) A culture that supports gay marriage and lesbians “parenting” children right up to the point that money is involved and then immediately returns to the primacy of biology like it was all that mattered from the start.
This is suck I cannot embrace.
