William Marotta, Kansas Sperm Donor, Fighting Order To Pay Child Support (VIDEO)

A sperm donor in Kansas is fighting an effort to force him to pay child support for a child conceived through artificial insemination by a lesbian couple. William Marotta donated his sperm to Angela Bauer and Jennifer Schreiner, but after their relationship ended, the state of Kansas is now ordering the father to come back into the picture and make child support payments. Marotta is suing and denying paternity obligations, telling HuffPost Live host Marc Lamont Hill: "I'm a sperm donor, and I have a contract."

Marotta described the state's demand that he pony up: "They were asking for child support in a telephone call, and the first thought in my mind was that no good deed goes unpunished."
