Netflix’s new documentary may be their most amazing.
The “Our Father” on the streaming platform tells the story of former fertility doctor Donald Klein, who admitted to using his own sperm to impregnate unknown patients more than 50 times.
Jacob Ballard was the first to discover Klein’s history when he conducted a DNA test at home which revealed that he had seven half-brothers.

“As the group traveled to learn more about their curious family tree, they soon discovered the ailing truth. The fertility doctor of their parents was impregnating his patients with his own sperm – without their knowledge or consent, “wrote a summary.
“As Ballard and his newly found siblings realize that they have just begun to unravel the dark web of his deception, their pursuit of justice is at the heart of this deeply turbulent story of an unimaginable violation of faith.”
The trailer shows some siblings telling their own stories and learning the “sick” feeling of how a person with such a high status in their community could be behind this work.

Klein was arrested in 2017 for lying to authorities about artificially conceiving patients. In 2018, his medical license was revoked even though he retired in 2009.
As directed by And! News, This is not the first time a fertility doctor has stopped it. 2020 HBO Doc “Baby God” Quincy Fortier has seen women conceive in her 30-year career, and the docu-series “Seeds of Disease” was about Jan Karbat who gave birth to nearly 200 children in the same way.
“Our Father” will air on Netflix on May 11.
