An Illinois sperm donor whose sperm was used to artificially impregnate his former girlfriend is being sued for child support. The in-vitro fertilization of the woman led to the birth of twin daughters. Both 45, the couple met on a dating web site and had a relationship for about 15 months. He claims he had no intention of doing anything more than provide his girlfriend with semen she needed to conceive, although he allowed his name to be put on the birth certificates. Her attorney claims he has “concocted” a story to extricate himself from having to pay child support. His lawyer claims it is a case of “involuntary parentage.” Source: Steve Patterson, Chicago Sun Times, suntimes.com. For the complete story, please click here (last visited April 12, 2006, reo).
