Sow & Ye Shall Reap

As a curious footnote to the previous post calling into question the efficiency of the CSA they seem to have fallen over themselves to track down a 'father' who helped two lesbians to have a child by donating his sperm. Five years later the chickens (or is it the eggs) have come home to roost and the CSA is pursuing him for maintenance for the resultant child. He is bringing a case to try to establish that he should not be responsible. In the meantime the HFEA are reminding men that donors who operate outside of authorised clinics have no legal protection from the uncharacteristically persistent reaches of the CSA. The Evening Standard reports.
