No good deed:
A Pennsylvania appeals court has ruled that a sperm donor who helped a lesbian couple conceive two children was liable for child support.
One legal expert believes might be the first ruling of its kind.
A Pa. Superior Court panel last week ordered a Dauphin County judge to establish how much Carl Frampton Jr. would have to pay to the birth mother of an eight-year-old boy and a seven-year-old girl.
With a keen sense of timing, Mr. Frampton died, so he is not actually going to have to pay. For those of you in the class who are paying attention, we went over this years ago:
If you donate sperm to someone you know, you're the daddy. If you want an enforceable oral agreement that will protect you from paternity, come in her mouth. There are laws in certain states that allow unknown donation through a sperm bank to relieve you of parental responsibilities (and rights, it works both ways.) But if you jerk off into a cup so your bestest female friend can do the turkey-baster trick, then you better get a good job, my friend, whether you have something in writing or not.
