Here's a bizarre scenario that could play out in the near future:
1. Stem cell lines created from an adult cell sample.
2. Sperm cells made from these stem cell samples (as described in recent news articles)
3. Women inseminated with sperm then sues original tissue sample donor for child support.
And here's another twist, they might be able to even create sperm from an adult tissue sample taken from a woman. Then you could have a woman suing
another woman as the biological "father" of the child in question.
What do you guys think? Is this possible? And if it is, give me a sound argument as to why the precedence regarding biological fathers would not
apply? Keep in mind that sperm donors have been found liable for child support.
Also, what if the tissue sample is taken without notice or consent? Just think of someone taking that donated blood down to the future fertility
clinic. Watch out for psycho girlfriends!
