Employees of the medical institution told the media that the gynecologist Jan Wildschut worked for them for 12 years (from 1981 to 1993). The man, without informing the patients, used personal sperm, instead of donor sperm, and fertilized women by an extracorporeal method.
To date, it is known about 17 children of Wildshut. The truth was found out only when one of the gynecologist's children passed a DNA test together with the doctor's niece. The results showed they were related.
Jan Wildshut's actions were declared immoral. 17 cases of IVF with medical sperm are just a small part of what can be. A genetic profile was created to establish the exact number of children. It is known that the Dutch police do not intend to conduct an investigation in the framework of a criminal case, since during the years of Wildschut's work, IVF was not regulated by law.
