for America (CWA) tells OneNewsNow William Marotta donated
sperm to a lesbian couple in 2009. A child was conceived and born.

Liberty Counsel's Mat Staver comments on this case.)
"You see in this case … so many of the different problems
related to all these new ways of having children for these families
that are made up of same-sex couples," Crouse comments. "Somebody

"Who are we to suddenly say that we have the intelligence and
the insight and the modern discernment, to suddenly say, Oh,

with it are wrong. While the courts are to decide whether the
Kansas donor will have to pay, Crouse believes the one who
really pays a price is the child.
