People will do some amazing things in order to get child support. Years ago a woman name Sharon Irons, a doctor, was having an affair with another doctor named Richard Phillips. They had a short affair but never actually had interc0urse. She would however perform 0ral s*x on him. One day for some reason she decided that she was going to store his s*men in her cheeks until she was in a different room and then spit it into a test tube. She used this to be artificially inseminated with.
Irons became pregnant. After she had the baby and the child was a year old she decided that she was going to go after child support from Phillips and she won in court. Phillips was ordered to pay $800 per month in child support because technically and biologically the child was his. He argued that since they did not have interc0urse she “stole” his s*men. The judge stated that in this case permission was not needed to use the sp*rm after it was released. He stated that the sp*rm was given as a “gift” with no stipulation that it needed to be returned. In the end Phillips walked out of that courtroom with a child that he wouldn’t get to see and $800 a month less in his bank account.
Irons knew what the situation that she was bringing her child into was and that is part of what makes this whole story cringe-worthy. She brought a child into the world without involving the father at all. Many say no child should be brought into the world as a result of trickery and deceit. And then after all of that there will probably be years of court battles over custody and child support. Is that really the best way to bring a child into the world?
