This is ridiculous, and "the state" should be ashamed of themselves.
It's my understanding that when a single mother goes for state assistance, it's the state's protocol to go after the father for support. However,
in this case, there technically is no "father" in a typically parental, moral, or obligatory sense. The very definition of a "sperm donor" is one
who donates sperm, and it is typically done with the understanding that they will have no future responsibility toward that child.
I'd venture to say something like 99.99999% of sperm donors would never donate if they imagined there was even a chance they would face
something like this.
So what is this? The state trying to punish and therefore discourage sperm donors? Punish single lesbian mothers? A little of both?
I wonder where Kansas falls on that list of federal taxes paid versus federal money received.
