Sperm donor ordered to pay child support

KANSAS (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - A Kansas man has been ordered to pay child support after offering to be a sperm donor for a same-sex couple.

The Kansas Department for Children and Families filed the case in October 2012.

The agency wanted to declare William Marotta the father of a girl born to Jennifer Schreiner in 2009.

Marotta argues he did not intend to be the father and signed away his parental rights.

But the judge argues that because no licensed physician was involved in the artificial insemination process, Marotta is more than a sperm donor and responsible for the child.
