    Please don't confuse the "right thing to do" with what a court orders. Legally if the children aren't his he has no obligation to them. He spent time raising children who aren't his. I think that fulfilled the "right thing to do".

    Well, thank goodness he is the one who has to face those girls asking him "Daddy, why don't you want us anymore?"

    Also, think of this. With the mother in the wrong here, he invites the anger, and hurt from the girls, and they will perceive their mother as being the wronged one....So, good job Dad, you just made yourself the villain, and justified the girls defending what their mother did.

    What a mess.

    Now, you can argue that the government doesn't have the right to enforce such things like support, and that is a valid argument, but as someone whom I have known to in the past have always looked at issues with a measured eye, and who has a religious avatar for his presence in here, I would think that the right thing to do would not to focus the hurt and anger he is feeling for the mothers indiscretions, at the innocent children.
    The children shouldn't be punished for anything. They should receive child support: from the biological father/s.

    This man who is not the father should get compensation from the mother for all the money and time he poured in to raising children that aren't his.

    At the end of the day, this man is no more responsible for these children than you or I. Why should he be continually burdened?

    It appears ridiculous if you don't know the facts of the case - knowing the facts, it might appear less so.

    The more ridiculous case is the Kansas case where a sperm donor to a lesbian couple is now being sued by the state for child support for the 3 year old child because the lesbian couple has applied for social assistance from the state.

    No, this case (in Canada) is far more ridiculous.

    Plus, the Kansas case will be dismissed anyway.

    And the answer would simply be "well, your mother is a whore, and you should do your best to avoid becoming anything like her."
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Oh, that will no doubt help the girls grow up to be well adjusted adults.

    If this man really loves his daughters, and they are his daughters regardless of the double helix in their cells, then he won't reject them regardless of what their mother has done.

    As for the Kansas case, aren't sperm donors supposed to be anonymous?

    Yes, but that doesn't apply to the case in question nor does the state have to respect it when it does.

    What a foolish message. Even the US Supreme Court often comes out with 5-4 decisions and trial court decisions are often overturned. Nor is it a legal question to the forum, but an ethical one. Ethically, I do not believe he should have to pay anything.

    They are not his daughters.
