It would seem to me that these sperm did come from a father, the little boy these cells were harvested from who never got a chance to grow into a man.
So, you are suggesting a dead boy who never chose this is a father? If so, it is the closest thing to a man becoming pregnant by rape I have heard of.
This sperm came from someone, not something; the embroy is a human child. The child who was killed didn't have a choice, but that doesn't mean he wouldn't be a father if his sperm was used. If the sperm had been unwillingly harvested from a full grown man, who was subsequently killed, the child conceived with that sperm would still be, biologically, his child.
I think you are making a biological point, while mine is sociological.
Children without sociological fathers are hardly new. What would be new would be ones without biological fathers, which has not yet happened. This is a big step in that direction, though. (I believe that they have already developed mice with female 'fathers'. )
May not be new, but certainly doesn't need help to make more.
