* In the Creator/GailSimone run on ''Franchise/WonderWoman'', specifically ''The Circle'': all the women of the Amazon society of Themyscira are reincarnations of women who were murdered in their previous lives, many of whom were mothers, but since they now exist under the ImmortalProcreationClause the desire for children reaches such extremes that several women carried wooden dolls called whittle babies, one woman experiences a break from reality and starts believing that the doll is her literal baby, and Hippolyta's personal guards look upon her having Diana after literal divine intervention as a curse that would lead to Amazon society being ripped apart by envy (an envy the eponymous Circle's leader is none too subtly implied to harbor) and resolve to solve the problem by murdering the infant Diana.

* In the Creator/GailSimone run on ''Franchise/WonderWoman'', specifically ''The Circle'': all the women of the Amazon society of Themyscira are reincarnations of women who were murdered in their previous lives, many of whom were mothers, but since they mothers. However, due to now exist existing under the ImmortalProcreationClause ImmortalProcreationClause, they are unable to have children, but still maintain the desire for children reaches such extremes that strong maternal instincts from their prior lives. As a coping mechanism, several women carried wooden dolls called whittle babies, babies; unfourtnately, one woman experiences a break just cracks from reality and it all, she starts believing that the doll is her literal baby, and forcing Hippolyta's personal guards to kill her. Further, the Circle look upon her Hippolyta having Diana after literal divine intervention as a curse that would lead to Amazon society being ripped apart by envy. This was forwarded most of all by Alkyone, head of the Circle and a very fervent protector of what she percieves as Amazon culture. She eventually decides to try and kill baby Diana and later her as an adult (where, in a fit of grand irony, it's revealed that Alkyone herself suffered from the same sort of envy (an envy the eponymous Circle's leader is none too subtly implied to harbor) and resolve to solve the problem by murdering the infant Diana. she warned about.)

* Played strangely in ''Webcomic/MoonOverJune'': Summer has had herself artificially inseminated, but did it solely to satisfy her pregnancy fetish, and doesn't appear to have thought the consequences through fully. As Hatsuki points out, since Summer DoesNotLikeMen to the extreme there's at least a 50% risk she'll resent the child as soon as it's born; Summer is in denial and insists, despite being a gynecologist, that "[[YouFailBiologyForever She'll be a girl if I want her to be one hard enough.]]" Meanwhile, Hatsuki has just discovered that she is ''also'' pregnant, but in her case it's unexpected, apparently caused by sexual contact with a girl who'd just had sex with a man rather than the more direct method, and WordOfGod is that she finds pregnancy frightening. She winds up keeping it in order to be able to work in pregnancy fetish videos, and after the kids (both girls) are born Summer and Hatsuki raise their respective offspring together.

* The HBO series ''Bored to Death'' features a storyline about a lesbian couple who hit up one the male main characters for sperm in a coffee shop. [[EddieIzzard Like you do.]] When he obliges, they turn around and sell his sperm on the black market to all the other lesbians in the neighborhood, all of whom are also desperate to reproduce.

* In ''NYPDBlue'', Det. Abbey Sullivan and her partner got Det. Greg Medevoy to donate his sperm.

* So far this has been [[AvertedTrope averted]] with ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'''s Willow, despite having been in two long term relationships. Though in a subtle version of this trope, Willow and Tara became a kind of "adoptive parents" towards Dawn, even after Buffy [[spoiler: came back from the dead]]. Later Dawn even comments that she sees Willow as her mom.\\\

* This seems to be the catalyst for the breakup between Caitlin and Alicia on the cancelled ''SexAndTheCity'' clone ''Cashmere Mafia''.
* Played with in ''[[FlashForward2009 FlashForward]]'' where Janice, a lesbian, quite bluntly says she does ''not'' want kids, but is pregnant in her vision of the future.

* ''{{Shortpacked}}'' has an odd version due to its sci-fi elements: Leslie and Robin decide to have kids, and consult Joe about some form of HomosexualReproduction. He devises a way that can make a man's sperm carry one of their DNA to impregnate the other. ([[ShoutOut He may have gotten this idea from]] ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited.'') He notes that while they could certainly do this "the fun way," they could also just have whatever man they choose donate sperm. (The usual turkey baster joke is replaced by a Super Soaker.) The couple asks their gay friend Ethan.

* Averted in ''Literature/RangersAtRoadsend'' by Jane Fletcher. Due to magic/technology that makes it possible to impress the genetic information of one woman onto the ovum of another woman, HomosexualReproduction is not a big deal and a sperm donor is not needed. There are plenty of lesbians who ''don't'' want kids, too.
