Dr. Donald Cline acted as a savior of sorts for the couples who couldn’t conceive for medical reasons, offering to match the women with sperm from anonymous men resembling their partners.
Many couples sought Dr. Cline out at his Indianapolis-area fertility clinic during the 1970s and ’80s. They had children, who grew up and had children of their own.
What the couples did not know was that, Dr. Cline was not using the sperm of anonymous donors.
He was using his own.
Now, Dr. Cline’s former patients and their children are asking enormously consequential questions: How many women did he deceive? How many children did he father? Most perplexingly, why did he do it?
The number of confirmed children he fathered now stands at 48 and the authorities expect it to grow further.
In some instances, Dr. Cline even told women that he was using their husbands’ sperm but provided his own.
“It’s definitely emotional on a lot of different levels, seeing how upset it makes my mom, some of the things that go around in my head, like, ‘Am I the way I am in some respect because he is who he is?’ It plays mind games with you,” said Matt White, one of the half siblings. “There’s times I get really angry. I’m confused. Like, why?”
The doctor has now admitted that he had given his own sperm to several patients but the exact number is not known.
