An Arizona woman is asking for full custody of her son, arguing that her ex-wife has no parental rights because she’s not biologically related to the child. Kimberly McLaughlin was artificially inseminated via an anonymous sperm donor in 2010. Last year, the Arizona Supreme Court ruled that Suzan McLaughlin (pictured) has the same right to custody as if she has been the husband of her ex, Kimberly.
Kimberly’s attorneys appealed and have now petition to have the country’s highest court rule on the case.
When the child was nearly 2, Kimberly moved out, taking the boy with her and cutting off contact.
