Message to men: do not help childless couples conceive under any circumstances
That’s what I took away from this:
Craigslist sperm donor forced to pay child support to lesbian couple – despite giving up parental rights to the baby BEFORE she was born
- Angela Bauer, 40, and partner Jennifer Schreiner, 34, placed ad in 2009
- Donor William Marotta relinquished financial responsibility for child
- Kansas state ordered Mr Marotta to pay after lesbian couple applied for welfare
Signed a contract? Made an agreement? Everything done in good faith? Doesn’t matter. You provided the DNA, you can be held responsible. Have fun paying those 18 years of support, chump! And to all you childless couples: have fun remaining childless!
Unless, of course, there are more reliable places than Craigslist to do this sort of thing. Really, people? Craigslist? What the hell else goes on at Craigslist? And should I be sorry for even asking that question?
