I had to do an essay recently about the discovery, way back in 2009, of how to create artificial sperm by lumping a skin cell and a stem cell together. The idea was a one-size-fits-all cure for male infertility (the fact that various militant feminists saw it as the herald of a world without men is neither here nor there).
Of course, it didnt take long for someone with an imagination and a sense of humour to say, 'what would happen if you stole someones skin cells (say, with sellotape), had them made into sperm, and then impregnated yourself with it?'
And i thought, my, what a good idea for a mercury debate. So what do you think of genetic fraud, guys and girls? Do you think it would be a widespread problem, if artificial sperm was someday a viable possibility? If a man was a victim of genetic fraud, should he be forced to pay child support?



Don't think about Elephants.

People shouldn't pay child support if it's known they are the victim of genetic fraud. Just like sperm donors don't pay child support.

I don't think it would be a widespread problem, but it would probably lead to some really weird individual cases.
