Craigslist sperm donor forced to pay child support to lesbian couple

- despite giving up parental rights to the baby BEFORE she was born

Daily Mail UK

A sperm donor has been ordered to pay child support for the biological daughter he fathered to a lesbian couple who found him via Craigslist.

Angela Bauer, 40, and partner Jennifer Schreiner, 34, placed an ad on the site three years ago for a donor which was answered by William Marotta.

‘We are foster and adoptive parents and now we desire to share a pregnancy and birth together,’ Bauer wrote in the online posting.

Mr Marotta provided sperm which was used for artificial insemination by Ms Schreiner. In return, he gave up parental rights including financial duties for the child.

The three signed a legal document which stated Mr Marotta, a married mechanic who fosters children with his wife, would have no rights to the child.

Bauer and Schreiner updated Marotta on their daughter’s well-being occasionally but he has had little contact, according to the Kansas City Star.

The arrangement changed earlier this year when Ms Schreiner, the only parent registered on her daughter’s birth certificate, applied for social welfare.

Ms Bauer had been supporting the child but was left unable to work due to ill health.

On October 3, 2012, attorney Mark McMillan filed a petition on behalf of the Department of Children and Families seeking a ruling that Marotta is the father of Schreiner’s child and owes a duty to support her.

It said the department provided cash assistance totaling $189 for the girl for July through September 2012, and had paid medical expenses totaling nearly $6,000.

Schreiner had allegedly been put under pressure to reveal Mr Marotta’s name so that her daughter could continue to have health care.

The legal agreement that the three made in 2009 was deemed invalid by Kansas state because they did not use a certified doctor for the insemination.

Ms Bauer and Ms Schreiner, who separated in 2010, plan to help Mr Marotta fight the state’s decision, saying they are ‘forever grateful’ for the child he gave their family.

    Sure, they don’t need a man until they need somebody to pay the bills. How 1950s of them.

    This is what we get when we throw in the toilet the cultural norms that have held up over thousands of years.

    I feel bad for the guy. But, honey, you should never have donated your sperm to these two self-centered, selfish women (sorry, “womyn”).

    I kind of agree with the state’s position in that you should not be able to create a life and then completely disown any responsibility, but to put the financial responsibility on only 1 of the 3 “parents” is wrong. Force the fat loads to work, too.

    You need a license to drive, fish, hunt, or carry a pistol but you can have all the kids you want and then make somebody else support them. Something ain’t right here.

    Lesbians are probably the single most selfish, childish, self-centered subset of society out there. They want to “play house” like they’re 8 years old. And, just like an 8 year old, when things don’t go their way, they want to be able to take their toys and go home. Problem is, they selfishly bring a child into this playland like some pink-skinned, diaper-wearing prop, and when they have their childish tantrum and go home, the kid is left twisting in the wind. Selfish little scrunts.

    I agree Diann How 1950′s of them.

    They want to be men, but when they can’t support their own kids, they suddenly put on the dress and apron and call the father to do his job and support their failure/social experiment.

    I also agree, who the hell would contribute to this and these nutless heathens cause…he should be fixed lkewise.

    If they can’t pro-create…..then so be it and I guess their lifestyle was a choice afterall.

    This is so wrong on so many levels.

    @Diann – “….Lesbians are probably the single most selfish, childish, self-centered subset of society out there….”

    So true, although it’s not limited soley to lesbos, the LGBT crowd demand that traditions be eliminated and the rules rewritten, in order to accomodate their self-centered desires.

    And did you notice that birth mother has now decided that she’s hetero. That should be a topic of another article, alone – nature vs. nurture.

    One look at those two hogs and you can see that weren’t any men knocking on their doors. And the sperm donor certainly wasn’t fantasizing about have sex with them while he was making the batter.

    I don’t feel a shred of pity for the guy though.

    These self hating men who want to appear as ‘progressive’ by empathizing and supporting feminists, are nothing more than males that do not, nor wish to be real men.

    They fail to understand that these feminists HATE men altogether, and even after obtaining that which they need from the people which they loath, they must complete their mysandry by suing the very people who help them achieve what they wanted…a child, thus completing the humiliation and degradation of the males.

    Hands up how many read the article in full? It’s obvious that few of you did. It’s not the dykes that are suing the donor, it’s the state. They threatened to hold back a childs medical care if the dykes didn’t give up the name of the sperm donor. The dykes said they support Marrotta in his fight against the state. Personally I think that Marrotta goofed as this kind of thing is likely to bite you on the ass a few years down the road but don’t blame the lesbians for this mess, blame the state.

    Last night the kids were watching their shows at 10:58 PM central time (I let them stay up til midnight), I grabbed the remote and switched over to NBC just to see the ball drop.

    I haven’t watched a lick of live TV in a LONG time and it took only 3 minutes to remember why.

    At 11:01 (12:01 eastern time), a reporter tapped 2 dudes on the shoulder to “get their reaction” and immediately states, “you are married, right?” They both respond YES and for the next 10 seconds they show them making out.

    @scr_north,

    You’re right. You usually are.

    I confess not to reading the entire article, however, be that as it may, it does not change my position one iota.

    The state may be suing, however they never would have initiated this had they not wished to recover costs from the lesbian couple for funds already provided.

    The couple could have simply decided to pay back the debt which THEY owed the state, NOT the donor. it was primarily their responsibility to ensure everything was done by the book, legally and financially. The donor donated, foolishly mind you, but in good faith. Did they advise the donor of the repercussions by not having a state approved doctor to perform the service? I’m willing to bet, no.

    Since they could not pay the funds back, the state went after the donor, but, the couple being liberal progressive lesbians that they are, let them go after the donor, so they would not have to pay back what they owed, while in the same breath trying to appear that they sympathize with the donor’s dilemma.

    It’s all BS and indicative of the progressive, selfish, and irresponsible worldview.

    My position stands.

    Go to any Section 8 Housing Project, and check out all the single moms with multiple children, many with a lst name different thatn the mother’s.

    Among the questions asked in order to qualify for this housing giveaway:

    Are your receiving any child support?
    Answer: NO

    Are you entitled to receive any child support?
    Answer: NO

    Mom and three to six children get free healthcare and heavily subsidized housing on our dime.

    I saw one application where the Mom listed a fiance, and crossed his name out. She already had two kids with her last name, and after moving in, proceeded to have 3 more kids with her ex-fiance’s last name. Yes, she answered “NO” to both questions above…..

    @ Tim – I’ve noticed that. There was an article in our local paper when gay marriage was briefly alllowed in CA, showing several couples at their ceremonies. EVERY SINGLE COUPLE looked like “twins.” Two older men with handlebar moustaches. Two thin pretty girls that looked straight. Two Barney Rubble butches. Two skinny bald dudes with glasses. It’s so weird. There is an article out there by an ex-gay man, who admitted there is a narcissism to homosexuality, a love of the mirror image of the self. Very revealing.
