    typically Republican about this whole situation.
    The women are no longer together, but because the state doesn't recognize the marriage/partnership, the one woman who is the natural mother of the child, can't sue her former partner for child support for this child.
    The mother has filed for Medicaid, so the state is suing the sperm donor for child support.
    So they're basically being hoist by their own petard. It would be delicious if it wasn't so stupid and borne from ignorance and bigotry.
     I don't know about legal standing though- I hope the court laughs in their face, but this is Kansas, after all.
