Entertainment personality Sherri Shepherd and her husband Sal are having a baby through artificial insemination. Sherri, 46, and her 59-year-old husband, Lamar Salley will forego the expense and risks involved with a natural pregnancy at her age. Instead, the couple have rented a womb and are waiting patiently for their baby girl to arrive.
The story about the new mom in China who flushed her newborn son down the toilet because she didn’t want him has taken a dramatic turn.
Neighbors called authorities after hearing a baby’s faint cries in the plumbing above them. Rescue workers arrived and uses blow torches to cut through the L-shaped sewage pipe to reach the baby. The newborn, still encased in the sewage pipe, was rushed to a hospital where doctors and nurses used pliers to break open the pipe and extract the crying baby.
The infants eyes, nose and mouth was filled with sewage material.
When lesbian couple Jennifer Schreiner and Angela Bauer wanted a baby to complete their family in 2009, they turned to a friend, William Marotta, to donate his sperm. But the unorthodox “new normal” arrangement may lead to financial ramifications for the well meaning 46-year-old married man.
The state of Kansas sued Marotta for child support of the now 3-year-old girl after Schreiner filed for state assistance.
Marotta told The Topeka Capital-Journal newspaper he’s “a little scared about where this is going to go, primarily for financial reasons.”
