  1. Stupid law. It might be a bit of a pain in the neck, but if the couple do not want or need this money, whilst he might have to pay it, they could return it to him and deal with the legal issues later.

      The “money” is not cash/child support for the mother. There is no “money” to be given back. It is the requested services through the state that caused the “donor” to be brought in. The state is suing for “reimbursement” because the one mom is looking for health insurance for their kids. The state wants to recoup their money from the sperm donor, the one the states claims is the 2nd parent.

      This is one of the many unequal consequences from the denial of civil rights (marriage) for gays.

  2. Give yourself more choices. Pinkmingle.com I would like to recommend you to the world’s best lesbian seeking&dating site for world wide lesbians.

    One more financial inequality & consequence of the war on civil rights for gays.

    The 2nd parent has health insurance. But… because they are “gay”, they could not marry nor could she legally adopt their children.

    Because of this legal (unequal) consequence, she cannot put HER children on HER health insurance, which would end this outrageous “sue the sperm donor” result/insanity.

  5. This is a warning for all of you irresponsible sperm donors.

    Don’t think this will be one off case. As we live in a very hard economic world.

    And if lesbians can get child support, they will.

    Been fighting for a long time against being sperm donors. I have been vindicated.
