Can Kansas make a sperm
donor cough up child support?

Hot Air, by Jazz Shaw

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/7/2013 7:31:15 AM

There’s a rather strange case brewing out in Kansas right now involving a man being sued by the state for child support. That, in and of itself, is sadly not all that unusual in modern society, but this one has a twist. The guy was a sperm donor. But that’s not the only twist in an increasingly complicated tale. If you’re planning to donate sperm in Kansas, you may want to do it through a doctor. That’s one message from the case of William Marotta of Topeka.

Comments:
I have zero sympathy for the guy.

The only question that comes to my mind is ´Was he compensated?´ If he received a monetary payment, preferably in the form of a check, it would bolster his argument. As for the article´s fixation upon the lack of legal representation, providing that the terms were not onerous to either party, that seems a bit of a stretch. Finally, if the state wants to stretch the bonds of credulity to the extreme and argue that Mr. Marotta was committing an act of prostitution, well stand- by for the arrival of the circus.

With regards to the authors final argument concerning the potential for dead-beats to claim that they were only ´donating´, we already have this situation now.

Why not produce children the way the good Lord intended us to produce them? Sounds quaint and backward these days?

A simple contract written by a lawyer for $200 would have alleviated this problem.

#2, I´ve read the article. He should never have donated sperm to a couple of lesbians. Children need a father and not a make believe family.

If you´re going to make this guy pay child support, then I should be able to get child support from my adopted daughter´s biological father. Yes, he gave up his parental rights, but so did this guy. What´s the difference?

The state is pursuing him for child support because one of the lesbian mothers, now single, sought welfare payments from the state. I´m surprised the former lesbian partner hasn´t provided monetary support for the child she and her partner had. /s

Either this dude is on the hook, or the taxpayer is.

The difference, #7, is that you did the adoption legally. The courts never recognized the private agreement between the hapless father and the lesbos. Which also brings up an equally interesting question. If a baby momma can´t name who the baby daddy, is she entitled to welfare?

a man and a woman enter into an agreement in good faith, but since a lawyer was not involved, the state decides their agreement was invalid. guess who is held to have complete financial responsibility?

Seems to me that if the state wants the sperm donor to pay child support then he should have the option of paying or taking custody of the child, especially since the 2 "moms" can´t seem to take take of the child.

The problem isn´t the contract, it´s the lack of a disinterested witness to that contract. Had they either hired a lawyer or used a physician a third party would have a contemporaneous record of the agreement.

I never thought all this donation stuff was a good idea to begin with. I understand the desire to have children but if you can´t do it the regular way, then maybe you weren´t meant to.

Personally, I think he does owe support. He knew what he was doing. Next time, buddy, get it in writing if you don´t want the responsibility for your actions.

#9, the answer is yes, the baby momma can collect welfare even if she cannot identify the father. It happens all the time.

Make him pay.
He participated in creating a human being without ANY responsibility.
As to the baby mom getting welfare without naming the father- perhaps it is time to insist they name the daddy or NO welfare.
If some of these predator males have to pay they won´t be so anxious to spread their mediocre seed.
Also, judges can lock them up for non support and that will at least keep them off the street and prevent more baby mommas.
Harsh?
What is harsh is 70 percent illegitimacy rates in black community and 40 percent with whites.Time to stop this train wreck.
Why should taxpayer support ignorance and sloth?

I never quite, quite understood this concept of "signing away your responsibilities." Signing away your rights, yes, --- but your responsibilities correlate to somebody else´s rights, in this case, the child´s.

A child has a right to a whole constellation of natural goods from his or her parents: his identity, his name, his place in a kinship system, nurture, education, care, provision and inheritance. All of these begin with the first right: the right to a mother and father. You can´t sign away what your child needs to survive and flourish in this world.

If you don´t want to be a father, don´t put your sperm into a woman´s genital tract.

That´s simple enough, isn´t it?

I´ll vote for the child´s rights every time.

I read in another article last week on this same subject that said this couple has six or seven other children. If they are wanting support for all of them, you can understand why the state is putting it´s collective foot down. I don´t know the origins of the other children but possibly there will be other "fathers" taking part in the support of the offspring.

Easter 2014: A celebration of hope
Fox News, by Rev. Dr. James B. Lemler    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/20/2014 7:32:56 AM     Post Reply
Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Gorgeous Easter Eggs From the

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan
National Interest Magazine, by John J. Mearsheimer    Original Article

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

White House blames fox for

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
