On the Austin American-Statesman website, there’s a story about a man, age 20, who was killed over the weekend whose mother has won a court order requiring sperm to be taken from the deceased to be used with a surrogate mother for a future child.
While intending no disrespect for the deceased or his family, this is officially a bit weird in my opinion. I would never want something like to be to be done to me if I had found an untimely end to my life.
If the man’s wife wanted this done, I would still be weirded out a bit and wouldn’t want it for myself, but I could understand it a bit more. But, for someone’s mother to want their son’s sperm leaves me a bit speechless.
Now, I’ve heard it all.
