    Forum Should Sperm Donors Have Parental Rights? A bill prompted by a custody dispute involving actor Jason Patric would allow certain sperm donors to seek paternity rights in court. The bill would require a donor to have lived with the child and held the child forth openly as his own. But opponents say the measure could affect the rights of same-sex couples or single mothers who use sperm donors. We discuss the bill, which is currently being revised after failing to clear a legislative panel last week.
