Anti-Gay Politician Caught Donating Sperm To New Zealand Lesbian Couples
Johnson, a Republican from Prattville, has spent much of the past year in Christchurch, New Zealand, as a contractor working on the recovery effort from a deadly earthquake that struck the city in February.
The New Zealand Herald reported in its Sunday edition that Johnson, who is married, has been using an alias to meet women who want help getting pregnant. The newspaper said it confirmed at least nine women had received sperm donations from Johnson, and at least three were pregnant.
The newspaper cited fertility medicine specialists in New Zealand who said that donors should not make sperm available to more than four families, to prevent accidental incest and lessen the stress donors and children face if they meet.
When confronted about his secret spermy life, Johnson admitted his wife did not know he had been spreading his seed on the side. He claims he was planning on telling wife Kathy only when the children were born. Kathy is unable to get pregnant, so Johnson had “no choice” but to secretly impregnate multiple lesbian couples because creating offspring is “a need that I have,” he says.
But can we focus on Johnson’s anti-gay political history for a moment, please? Homeboy ran for governor of Alabama in 2010 on a conservative Christian platform, pledging to fight against gay marriage, but legalize gambling. Because as all good Christians know, Jesus spoke little of love and commitment, as he was busy at the roulette wheel for the greater part of his life.
Imagine the horror of the women who now know their bodies are home to the growing progeny of a homophobic, failed Alabama politician who deceived his wife, the many recipients of his sperm, and the entire New Zealand fertility medicine industry, and put his own children at risk of accidental incest in their futures just because he “had a need.”
