This chapter presents three different proposals pertaining to the allocation of the paternity of the men involved in the artificial insemination process. The first proposal addresses situations involving two or more men who want to be recognized as the father of the resulting child. The second proposal is offered to assist courts faced with the decision of whether or not to acknowledge the inseminated woman's husband or same-sex partner as the paternal parent of the artificially conceived child. The third proposal discusses the paternal obligations of sperm donors. The theories that underlie these proposals address situations that involve one adult who is biologically unrelated to the child. The focus is on cases where the option before the court is either to allocate parental rights to the one person seeking it or to declare the artificially conceived child to have only one legal parent.
