Attorney: Kansas law on sperm donors outdated

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — An attorney who’s trying to prevent a Kansas sperm donor from having to pay child support for a girl who was ultimately conceived says a state law dealing with artificial insemination is outdated.

Lawyer Ben Swinnen of Topeka noted today that a national group proposed in 2002 that states adopt laws saying no sperm or egg donor is legally the parent of a child conceived through artificial reproduction.

Kansas law says a sperm donor is not considered a child’s parent if a doctor is involved in the artificial insemination.

Swinnen represents 46-year-old Topeka resident William Marotta, who donated sperm to a lesbian couple in 2009. No physician was involved, and the state filed a lawsuit in October to try to force Marotta to pay child support.

This is the kind of of thing that happens when mankind opposes God's law.

Artificial insemination is just plain wrong. Human beings are not robots.

Also, these homosexual "imitations" of legitimate families, with a mother and a father are another distortion of God's plan for mankind.

Life today is cheap - to be created at the whim of scientists, not unlike the reproduction of animals.

I know "anything goes" is becoming the "new normal," but that doesn't make it right.
