NY woman planning to have dead lover's child

NEW YORK (AP) - A New York judge has given a woman permission to
harvest her dead lover's sperm so she can still have his baby.
Johnny Quintana was only 31 when he died Thursday of an apparent
heart attack.
He had wanted to have a second child with his fiancee, Gisela
Marrero, but the only way to make it happen was to quickly collect
his sperm, which stays fresh for only 36 hours after death.
A court order was needed because Quintana and Marrero were not
yet married.
The Bronx judge said "yes" Friday with only four hours left
until the deadline.
Sperm bank staffers then rushed to Jacobi Medical Center, where
Quintana's body lay.
Marrero already has a 2-year-old son with Quintana.
