American VoicesOpinion ISSUE 48•21 May 22, 2012

The Supreme Court ruled that a set of twins conceived with frozen sperm through in vitro fertilization 18 months after the father's death are not eligible for Social Security survivor benefits. What do you think?

  • “In that case, I might as well defrost all that sperm I’ve been banking for my future widow and use it now.”

  • “I thought it in poor taste that Justice Scalia pointed out that they're not eligible for fatherly love either.”

  • “I agree with the decision. Finding the right woman to raise a family with is hard enough as it is. If you let dead guys into the mix, I don’t have a chance.”
