Woman Sues Gay Friend For Child Support, 16 Years After He Donated Sperm To Her

Woman Sues Gay Friend For Child Support, 16 Years After He Donated Sperm To Her

A gay man who helped his friend conceive two children might be rethinking his kind deed, as she is now suing some him sixteen years later. That woman, now a medical doctor, is taking advantage of a loophole in Ontario law that allows for known sperm and egg donors to be held liable for child support based on biology alone, the Montreal Gazette reports.

There is a bill before the provincial legislature to amend the Children’s Law Reform Act, which could close the loophole, but perhaps too late for Michael Ranson, said his lawyer, Shirley Levitan.

Ranson met Dr. Amie Cullimore in 1991 and in 2000 she called on him to fulfill an old promise to donate his sperm so she could undergo IVF, court documents state.

He agreed to stay involved in their lives, since he had no plans of having his own children, but “never would have donated if had he known she was seeking any financial support from him,” his legal team claims.

The pair signed an agreement in 2002, granting full custody to the mother and saying she “would not look to Ranson for any financial support.”

If Cullimore is successful in her suit, Ranson will be responsible for four years of retroactive child support, since 2012, as well as other expenses, including post-secondary education.

“He feels like now he’s being punished for having been a good spuncle [slang term for known sperm donor],” his legal representative said. “How does he maintain a good relationship with these kids now?

“This is not something he signed on for.”

    All this Canadian law is succeeding in doing is ruin sperm donor’s willingness to ever donate sperm. Like seriously, just imagine how a man’s goodwill has come back to bite him in the ass. Mscheeewwwww.

    The man sef too dumb… Even if you know that you don’t need the children, but you dey give your sperms,,, common sense must have told him that he’s got he’s seeds somewhere. And wether he like it or not he’s a father. As far as your sperms ate used some where you never care, one day the kids will locate you and you can’t just hide away from that shit you tot you did to help some one. Ctew it’s annoying… The whole thing is just shit …

    It’s just right because he’s the father of the child. What’s wrong is the action of the mother who sues the gay. She benefited having the child in the first place.
