Sperm donor ordered to pay child support

A British firefighter who donated his sperm so a lesbian couple could have two babies is being forced to pay thousands of pounds in child support.

Andy Bathie, 37, initially agreed to help Sharon and Terri Arnold after being assured he would not have to be involved in the upbringing of their young boy and girl or have any financial responsibility towards them.

But the British government's Child Support Agency has begun docking his pay to force him to contribute to the children's upbringing because the lesbian couple have split up.

Mr Bathie has launched unprecedented court action in an attempt to ensure he cannot be recognised as a legal parent to the children.

"These women wanted to be parents and take on all the responsibilities that brings," he told the Evening Standard newspaper.

"I would never have agreed to this unless they had been living as a committed family.

"And now I can't afford to have children with my own wife - it's crippling me financially."


Like the title I stuck on this reads: Complete. And. Utter. BULL. SHIT.

I'm just having trouble processing how anyone could be so greedy or stupid to attach this on him. Even if they got him on that he didn't sign anything (which the article doesn't say if he did or not), this is just so absurd.

After showing this to a few other people on LiveJournal, someone mentioned that this would probably hurt the gay marriage image for other couples who are just trying to gain acceptance. While I hope people won't be so shallow as to judge gay marriages by this obviously fucked up set of people, I could see people looking with distaste at some gay unions because of this.

I'm sorry, but the woman who does not have custody of the children should be the one paying child support. Even if it is only a verbal contract (which doesn't hold up in court) who the hell allows the sperm donor to be charged with financial responsibility?

Let this be a lesson people- never agree to anything without a written contract/agreement. Get it documented.
