Can a non parent get rights in a lesbian friendship?

Q: A lesbian friend helped inseminate me and I conceived, she’s not on the birth certificate nor has she adopted the child. I said I would allow her to see the child here and there but she’s been harassing and demanding to see the child when ever she chooses to do so. 

A: David’s Answer: It depends – the law is certainly evolving in this area. That said, it depends on what was discussed and anticipated at the time of conception – was it anticipated she’d have “visitation”? If so, she may have a case.
