The topic is investigated in Lucie Jourdan’s Netflix documentary about the case of Donald Cline, in which she also serves as director.
Jacoba Ballard felt compelled to get her DNA analyzed by 23andMe after she discovered a stunning finding that would later be the subject of a documentary that would be released on Netflix.
In 2014, a woman from Indiana who was born as a result of donor conception pondered whether or not she had any half-siblings. Over eight years of investigation, the family tree of the woman who is now 43 years old yielded evidence of the existence of at least 94 siblings.
There were at least seven of them located within a radius of fifty kilometers around her. Donald Cline, a fertility doctor, had used his sperm on his patients without their permission or knowledge to have children with a number of his patients. All of the children shared the same biological father.
A brand new documentary titled “Our Father” that focuses on Ballard and her half-siblings is currently accessible to see online.
