A doctor is suing a fertility clinic for $5 million, claiming the sperm he donated to it was used to create far more children than was initially agreed.

Bryce Cleary, who lives in Oregon, claims he donated his sperm to the clinic 30 years ago with the understanding that it would only be used to conceive five children, all of them outside the Pacific Northwest.

Cleary says he learned through an ancestry.com search that he at least 17 children, some of them living in close proximity to him and his family, and some unknowingly attending the same schools and churches as each other.

Cleary has four children with his wife.
