    Sperm donor for lesbian couple’s baby ordered by court to pay child support, vows to fight ruling
    A Kansas judge has decided that a contract between William Marotta, Angela Bauer and Jennifer Schreiner is void because the insemination wasn’t performed by a licensed physician.



    A Kansas man who donated his sperm to help father a child for a lesbian couple has been ordered by the state to pay child support for the daughter he helped conceive.


    William Marotta, a 43-year-old mechanic from Topeka, was targeted by Kansas state officials earlier this year to pay child support for the little girl, who is now 3 years old, after the couple had parted ways, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported.

    In 2009, Marotta had responded to an ad on Craigslist posted by Angela Bauer and her former partner Jennifer Schreiner, who were seeking a man to be a sperm donor so they could conceive a child.

    The three came to an arrangement to have Marotta’s sperm artificially inseminated into Schreiner. Under the terms of the agreement, Marotta relinquished his parental rights, including all financial responsibility.

    But in 2010, the couple, who continue to co-parent eight adopted children ranging in age from 3 months to 25 years, parted ways, raising the issue of who would pay child support for the little girl, according to the Capital-Journal. Then, earlier this year, Bauer, who had been supporting Schreiner and the children, became unable to provide health benefits for the three-year-old, due to a “significant illness” that prevented her from working, and the couple applied for state services — which prompted the Kansas Department for Children and Families to request the name of the child’s father.

    Because Schreiner was the child’s sole parent under Kansas law, which does not recognize same-sex marriage, the state was unable to collect child support from Bauer. So the Kansas DCF filed a child support claim against Marotta, the father, the Capital-Journal reported.

    Adding to the case’s complications is the fact the state, in court documents, is alleging that the contract Marotta entered into with the women — under which he wasn’t liable for financial responsibility for the child — is null and void because the insemination wasn’t performed by a licensed physician.

    Even though the state is going after Marotta on behalf of the two women, they have said they support Marotta in his efforts to fight the claim and question whether the state’s decision has political motives.

    "This was a wonderful opportunity with a guy with an admirable, giving character who wanted nothing more than to help us have a child," Bauer, 40, told the Capital-Journal. "I feel like the state of Kansas has made a mess out of the situation."

    “More and more gays and lesbians are adopting and reproducing, and this, to me, is a step backward,” Bauer continued. “I think a lot of progressive movement is happening currently in the world as far as gays and lesbians go. Maybe this is Kansas’ stand against some of that.”

    Efforts to reach Marotta, Bauer and Schreiner were unsuccessful, and a message left for the Kansas DCF was unreturned.

    Marotta is seeking to have the case against him dismissed. A judge will hear his motion for dismissal Jan. 8 in Shawnee County District Court.

    You never answer those ads on Craigslist. He should have gotten a lawyer to advise him so that his tracks were covered in case of this. Guarantee anytime she struggles raising that kid, she'll file for support. Fifteen more years of hell.

    The couple isn't in the wrong. The state is ordering the donor to pay child support.

    This is a very tough spot to be in. On one hand, he did his good deed and was apparently absolved of all parental rights. On the other, the child is still his since he helped to make it. The letter of the law and emotional affairs such as this never end well. The lady isn't able to take care of the daughter and the ex partner isn't in any position to do anything. If I were him, I would want to help out with my seed (using "my" pretty loosely) and possibly develop a relationship with the child.

    Yes, the contract states that he isn't required to but if he isn't able to fight it, he needs to ask for joint custody as well, or at least visitation. I'm sure the curiosity of knowing more about the child has struck him at least once. This may allow him the opportunity to forge that bond.

    This makes no sense, this is why you watch who you place your seed in

    There's a reason he wanted to be absolved of his parental rights. He doesn't want to forge a bond or get to know her.

    Dude is an idiot, first answering add on craigslist. Now that is kinda excusable.

    But even worse, not knowing the law so that your *** is covered. :smh:
