Doctor says donated sperm used to father at least 17 children, sues uni for $5.25 million

Article here. Lesson: don't had your sperm yo a bunch of strangers. Excerpt:

'An Oregon doctor who says he discovered that his donated sperm was used to father at least 17 children in violation of an agreement that allowed for the creation of no more than five children filed a $5.25 million lawsuit Wednesday against Oregon Health & Science University.

Bryce Cleary, now 53, thinks it’s possible that he has many more offspring from his sperm donations 30 years ago. During a news conference Wednesday, Cleary sat by one of those 17 children, whom he had just met, and said he believes OHSU was “incredibly irresponsible." He said he wants change.
The children Cleary has raised and his fertility clinic offspring have crossed paths, according to the lawsuit, because OHSU’s fertility clinic also breached another promise: that all of the children be born to mothers living outside Oregon or on the East Coast. That would lessen the chances that Cleary and his future children would interact with them or that his children could conceivably become romantically involved with them, according to the suit.

The suit says most if not all of his offspring were born in Oregon.'
