Jacoba Ballard decided to take a DNA test one day, in hopes of finding one or two half-siblings with the same sperm donor. “Growing up, I felt different,” she says in the documentary’s trailer. But when she found seven matches, she realized that she had stumbled across a major discovery. Jacoba discovers a shocking scheme involving donor sperm and a popular fertility doctor.This is one of those documentaries that will have you thinking “oh wow, that’s horrible” and then it keeps getting worse right through to the very end.It is not difficult to relate to the lifelong trauma being faced by the mothers, siblings and fathers simply by imagining how you would feel if this happened to you. It is absolutely THE greatest betrayal of trust by a person who, as a gynecologist/obstetrician (and a preacher), is someone we should trust implicitly with our lives.For generations to come, these families will continue to live in fear that their children, grandchildren and so on, may unwittingly have a child with a relative.The documentary was well paced as it introduced each mother and child, while unpacking the sheer arrogance of this evil man, right up to the shocking crescendo at the end of the couple with twin daughters.It’s a must see film!
