An Indianapolis doctor is in some serious trouble after the police learned about his dirty little secret. As it turns out, the man had put something downright disturbing inside of 27 unaware female patients – and even worse yet, he left it there hoping that the women would never find out. Unfortunately for him, he was wrong.
When it comes to our health, one can never be too careful. Although we have ways to help us figure out what might be going wrong online, it’s always best to go in and get looked over by a trained medical physician. After all, they spend time in college learning about the human body, and it’s best to leave it up to the professionals. Unfortunately for at least 27 Indiana women, though, doing just that would turn out to be the biggest mistakes of their lives.
As it turns out, the victims were patients of Dr. Donald Cline in Indianapolis, a fertility doctor who was tasked with getting the women pregnant and therefore had access to parts of a woman that allowed him to do the unimaginable. According to WGN9, the entire ordeal came to light when the children, who are now adults, decided to use the website 23andme. For those unaware, the company will analyze your DNA via a blood sample that you send in and tell you the nationalities of your ancestry.
However, it also tells you who you may be related to when two matching DNA samples come through their database. As it turns out, that was Dr. Cline’s downfall as it was revealed someone’s DNA matched 7 more “sibling relatives” in their system.
Before long, the group was starting to realize that their mothers had all been treated by the same disgusting doctor. They quickly connected the dots and realized that the man was using his own sperm to impregnate his patients. Come to find out, Cline had been telling women that he was using donor sperm that would be used for no more than 3 successful pregnancies.
Sadly, he was lying. At first, the accusations were few with just two women coming forward. However, things got more serious as the 7 previously noted siblings were made aware of their relation to one another.
Of course, the man immediately denied the charges, but things would get worse as another 14 people would come forward – but things were far from over. In fact, Dr. Cline was forced to admit what he had done after 27 children his female patients had given birth to were matched to the man through DNA testing.
For now, Cline is only facing two charges of obstruction of justice in which he is expected to plead guilty as The Daily Wire reports. As one would imagine, though, many people are saying that it’s not enough, considering the severity of the man’s crimes.
At the end of the day, this man essentially medically raped these women by involuntarily planting his seed in them. Now, these women all have his children, which isn’t what they wanted, and have to live the rest of their lives knowing that their child doesn’t actually belong to a random donor but a doctor who took advantage of their trust.
Those who perhaps want justice the most seem to be the children brought into existence on account of Dr. Cline’s disturbing practice as they say what he’s currently facing is not enough. “A lot of people tell me that I wouldn’t be here if he hadn’t done what he did,” said 35-year-old Julie Manes, just one of the 27 known donor siblings. “That is true, but it’s almost like telling a rape victim, ‘Well if your mother hadn’t been raped you wouldn’t be here.’ It doesn’t make it right!”
Although Cline stepped down from his practice in 2009, he was well beyond retirement age anyway. Sadly, it looks like this man will face no real consequences for what he did despite the vile nature of it all. This is disturbing on so many levels, but the fact that he got away with it for so long and was able to impregnate so many women is perhaps the worst of it all. This monster needs to be locked away for what’s left of his pathetic and miserable life.
