Jacoba Ballard was born by artificial insemination via a sperm donor. As an only kid, she always wished for siblings. Ballard realized she had not one, but seven half-siblings after doing an at-home DNA test. Regrettably, there will be no joyful family reunion at all. While researching their family history, the group of siblings untangle a horrific truth: Their parents’ fertility doctor had been inseminating his patients with his own sperm – without their permission.
A brand-new documentary follows Ballard and her newly discovered siblings as they attempt to bring the web of lies to light. A former reproductive specialist was lauded for his work in helping couples start their families in a small Indiana town. How did he manage to carry out this heinous crime for so long without being caught? He goes along with the siblings as they seek punishment for a betrayal they cannot comprehend. The documentary is set to come out on May 11.
