Sperm donor ordered to pay child support
by UPI

LONDON -- A London firefighter who donated sperm so lesbian friends could have children said he was shocked and angered to learn they're demanding child support.

Britain's Child Support Agency says only anonymous sperm donors are exempt from child support responsibilities unless the children are legally adopted, The Independent reported. The agency has asked Andy Bathie, 37, to pay thousands of pounds in child support for a girl and boy born to Sharon and Terri Arnold, Bathie told the paper.

Bathie, of north London, says he provided sperm to the couple about five years ago and was assured he would have no obligations to the children.

"I don't have any particular ill will," he told the paper. "It's the fact that I still even now don't see why I should have to pay for another couple's children."
