Vice: Sperm Donor, 17+Kids, and a $5M Lawsuit

Short Documentary 

"Thirty years ago, Bryce Cleary donated sperm to OHSU's fertility clinic with the understanding that the donation would result in 5 children born on the opposite coast. DNA testing has since revealed that promise was not kept and Bryce has at least 14 children in the Oregon area and even more out of state. Bryce might have never known this if it weren't for the detective work of his donor children, several of whom have formed a close bond. VICE met with these donor siblings to hear their story and the shocking lack of regulation in the fertility industry that resulted in their births."
