Here is a completely normal, run-of-the-mill, so-boring-I-can’t-believe-I’m-posting-it story. Try not to yawn from boredom at this story, which happens so, so often:
A conservative Christian politician has a secret life as a sperm donor for lesbian couples – even though he has campaigned against gay marriage.
American politician Bill Johnson has spent most of this year in Christchurch helping run the earthquake recovery, all the while using the online persona “chchbill” to meet women who want help to get pregnant.
Under that persona, he has discussed making donations to at least nine women without the knowledge of his family in the US.
Three of the women are now pregnant, and Johnson has assisted another three with donations in the past month. It is believed he has been in communication with at least another three women to discuss sperm donation.
His actions as a sperm donor sparked concern in the fertility medicine community, whose guidelines recommend donations are made in the regulated environment of a fertility clinic, and that no man provide sperm donations to more than four families.
Not only did he give some sperm to lesbians in New Zealand, officials are concerned that he gave too much sperm to lesbians in New Zealand.
In his political life, Johnson campaigned on a conservative Christian platform which opposed gay marriage.
He said he did not know the “relationship status” of the women he donated to: “I just know they want to have children.” Asked if it mattered, he said: “I’m not going to answer that question.”
Oh, so he can spread his seed throughout the Southern hemisphere but he can’t answer a simple question? Typical wingnut.
Wife not happy:
“This is a really, really difficult time for our family,” Kathy Johnson said in an email to the Press-Register. “I’m still in disbelief and very hurt, and our family has a lot of healing to do.”
