This teaches us that sperm theft – as it is – is stealing a man’s sperm for the purpose of falling pregnant without his consent and will. Today, tort liability can be established against a woman in cases where sperm theft is indeed proven. But it is often the man’s fault, too, because it is the man’s responsibility (too) to take birth control and to avoid unwanted pregnancy. However, even in a case of sperm theft, the father will be charged with child support, when there is a ruling that determines that the amount of alimony should be reduced – as long as it is proven that the sperm was stolen. Furthermore, in such cases and in general, it is advisable to use a family lawyer.
