Our Father is a recently released Netflix Documentary about a doctor named Donald Cline who had used his sperm to inseminate his patients with infertility without their consent. 

Initially, he told the patients that the sperm were exclusive and selective and only to be used in 3 cases at max, but in reality, he was using his sperms to inseminate his patients. 

The crime documentary series reveals the truth about the whole story and how the group of siblings managed to find the truth behind the whole story and find out those who have also been affected by Doctor Cline’s deeds. 

Towards the end of the documentary film, we saw that the Siblings Jacoba Ballard, Julie Harmon, Matt White, Heather Woock, Lisa Shepherd-Stidham, Jason Hyatt, Carrie Foster, and Alison Kramer went into a legal war with Doctor Donald Cline as they lodged a complaint against him, Indiana Attorney General.

What happened to Donald Cline? Was He sentenced to imprisonment? And Where is he now?

In 2017, the Siblings Jacoba Ballard, Julie Harmon, Matt White, Heather Woock, Lisa Shepherd-Stidham, Jason Hyatt, Carrie Foster, and Alison Kramer went into a legal war with Doctor Donald Cline as they complained to him, Indiana Attorney General. 

But during that time, there was no law to criminalise the acts of Doctor Cline. Therefore Doctor Cline was left as a free man by the court. He didn’t spend any jail time. Instead, he was just charged with two counts of obstructions of justice, and the court suspended his medical practitioner certificate and issued a $500 fine. 

Today Doctor Cline is still a free man, and there is still no federal law for illicit donor insemination. However, in 2018 after a successful campaign, the mothers and the siblings passed legislation in Indiana to make illicit donor insemination illegal, which is yet to happen. 

Furthermore, 44 more doctors were found who used the same method as Doctor Cline to inseminate fertility parents with their own sperm without their consent, and Doctor Cline remains prolific among these doctors. 

As of now, 94 siblings of Doctor Cline have been identified and counting++, but the whereabouts of Doctor Donald Cline is unknown.
