A sperm donor in the U.S. is fighting an effort to force him to pay support for a same-sex couple's child, who was conceived through artificial insemination.
William Marotta told a Topeka newspaper in Kansas that he's "a little scared about where this is going to go, primarily for financial reasons."
When the 46-year-old donated sperm to Angela Bauer and Jennifer Schreiner in 2009, Marotta relinquished all parental rights, including financial responsibility. When Bauer and Schreiner filed for state assistance in Kansas this year, the state demanded the donor's name so it could collect child support for the now three-year-old girl.
