    Dead son’s sperm to be saved for mom

    ASSOCIATED PRESS • April 8, 2009

    AUSTIN, Texas — A judge has granted a mother’s request to have someone harvest sperm from her dead son’s body, so she can have the option of carrying out his wish to have children.

    Nikolas Colton Evans, 21, died Sunday at a Brackenridge hospital after being punched and falling outside an Austin bar March 27.

    His mother, Marissa Evans, told the Austin American-Statesman newspaper that he wanted to have three sons someday and had even picked out their names: Hunter, Tod and Van.

    “I want him to live on. I want to keep a piece of him,” she told the newspaper.

    Travis County Probate Judge Guy Herman ruled Monday in an emergency hearing requested by the mother, because of the urgency of collecting the sperm intact.

    Ewwww. God forbid that my son dies before me, but if he did, that's not the piece I'd want to keep.

    This is why it's important to have friends and relatives around who can tell you when you are going crazy with grief and that it's time to stop.

    He already picked out names for his kids? What 21 year old male does that?

    That's down right creepy. And gross.

    How do you harvest it, now that he's, you know, dead?

    None. But their moms probably do. And that is most likely the case here.

    "It's what he wanted."

    How the fuck do you know?

    By all means, lets keep this family of rocket scientists procreating, even in death.

    Mama needed to have the birds-and-bees talk with Nikolas and tell him if he wanted to have children, he needed to have sex before he died. ::) ::)

    Maybe I just note it mentally whenever I read about it, but it seems like dying from a punch and fall isn't that uncommon.

    It's weird, I would never think punching a guy could somehow kill him, but you hear about it from time to time. Not that I've been punched or plan on punching someone at a bar, but still.
