With the recent decision in People v. Sorenson, a significant departure in ritualistic thinking in the area of domestic relations was signaled when it was determined that if a consenting husband allows an act of artificial insemination to be performed on his wife, and the positive result of the act is a child, the husband is-accordingly-liable for the child's support. No social stigma of illegitimacy will be imprinted on the child and no question of adultery can be raised as to the wife and donor or doctor.
