Texas Court Rules for Legal Dad in Mom v. Non-Medical Artificial Insemination Dad Fight

A Texas lesbian mom who conceived her child with donor sperm from her friend through “nonmedical artificial insemination” was not successful in her fight to prevent the sperm donor dad from being recognized by Texas as the child’s legal father. ¬†Apparently, the sperm donor dad provided a donation in a cup that was then used by mom for artificial insemination. ¬†The court opinion held that “because father did not provide sperm to a licensed physician for the purpose of artificial insemination, we hold that father is not a donor as that term is defined in section 160.102(6) and therefore may be named as a parent” to the child.
