(b) Failure of the husband to sign a consent required by subsection (a), before or after birth of the child, does not preclude a finding that the husband is the father of the child born to his wife if the wife and husband openly held out the child as their own.

(c) The consent of a spouse to assisted reproduction may be withdrawn by that individual at anytime before placement of the donated eggs, sperm, or embryos. The withdrawal must be in a signed record maintained by the licensed assisting physician.
