“OUR FATHER” BASED ON TRUE EVENTS
Between the decade of 1970 and 1980, Dr. Cline inseminated at least 50 women with his own sperm, deceiving them by telling them that the donors came from medical laboratory residents.
It was like, over time, more than 90 people claimed to be his children. Jacoba Ballard is one of them. As soon as he found out what had happened, he looked for her half-siblings on social media. His work and also desire to know the truth brought the doctor to trial in 2016.
Cline pleaded guilty in court and had his doctor’s license revoked.but this did not have much impact on his life, since He had been retired from medicine since 2009. The authorities also sentenced him to a year in prison, and Indiana prosecutors claimed that they could not convict him any longer because in that state there is no law that punishes fertility crimesa legal vacuum that left the victims unprotected.
However, despite the fact that they did not give him a great sentence as they wanted, his case became so mediatic that it was possible to promote a law initiative with which it seeks to punish doctors who deceive patients in clinics dedicated to this type of practice.
