to the mods: it's a mainstream AP story ;)

"Phillips accuses Dr. Sharon Irons of a "calculated, profound personal betrayal" after their affair six years ago, saying she secretly kept semen after they had oral sex, then used it to get pregnant."

I don't see how he can be forced to pay child support when he didn't actively engage in fathering the child. That would set a precendent that anyone who gave birth through artificial insemination could force the donor to pay for support.

the idea is that it's for the kid, no matter what mom or dad did. In many US states you are forced to pay child support for kids that your wife had with other guys.

Wild story, it is the talk of the office.
Lots of great jokes I can not share, so make up your own.

I suspect this will thread will be deleted soon.

Huh? Never heard of this one, can you explain it to me, walkman?

Oh, and to comment on the story itself? <sarcasm>Makes me proud to be an American.</sarcasm>

ABC News Story [64.233.161.104]:
"The paternity debate is heating up in the courts, too. Two men recently attempted and failed to get the U.S. Supreme Court to hear their cases after lower courts ruled they must continue paying support for children who turned out not to be theirs."

Oh yes. One poor man was ordered by the court to keep paying child support to a child that was proven to not be his. Some woman remarked in the article that he should just "suck it up!"
Amazing how many innocent adults' lives are ruined in the name of "the children" or worse yet, If it saves/helps only one child, it is all worth it. VERY BIG IF, always coming from one not on the paying end of the reckoning.

Wow. That's so not cool. And she wanted him to pay child support? If his story is true then wow.

omigawd, pendanticist. That - that - defies belief, I guess....

Hmm. So one assumes she must have had some insider info (um. No pun intended....) on the IQ and genetic background of the putative daddy - otherwise why bother?

As I understand it, they did not participate in a, uhm, a normally, fetus producing act. This act was one of conspicuous consumption I think.

I beg to differ. If the gentleman was, and stayed, asleep, Dr. Irons must be the most inconspicuous person on the planet.

Depends on your perspective, I guess. As the term conspicuous consumption [fordham.edu] goes, I was thinking 'dietary'. :)
