The bodies of over 2,000 preserved aborted babies were found in the home of Ulrich Klopfer after he died earlier this month. Police reported at least 2,246 aborted fetal remains were found on Klopfer’s property, and Attorney Generals in the states of Illinois and Indiana are investigating the gruesome discovery. The Will County Coroner’s office has taken possession of the remains. Indiana legislators recently attempted to determine if Klopfer illegally transported the aborted babies from his Indiana-based abortion clinic to his home in Illinois.
State Rep. Ron Bacon said of the collection’s discovery:
The revelation of over 2,200 fetal remains being found on the property of the late Dr. Klopfer in Illinois is seriously disturbing. Since these remains were found in Illinois, we are very concerned there may be other remains in the Indiana clinics where he performed abortions.
This is not the first time Klopfer was caught collecting aborted remains as souvenirs. A search warrant carried out at Klopfer’s Women’s Pavilion clinic in South Bend, Indiana, saw police seize documents and other property. The raid took place after inspections in 2010 and 2012 revealed Klopfer had been storing the remains of an aborted baby in the fridge next to medications.
As an abortionist, Klopfer failed to report the rape of a 10-year-old abortion patient by her uncle, and he committed a variey of other malpractices, such as multiple botched abortions. Klopfer would eventually lose his license as a result.
Cathie Humbarger, Indiana Right to Life’s Vice President of Policy Enforcement, said at the time:
Klopfer compromised the health and safety of women who sought abortions from him in Gary, Fort Wayne and South Bend, and we’re relieved he is finally being shut down. Hoosier women deserve better. We extend our appreciation to the Pence administration and the ISDH for refusing to sweep Klopfer’s shady practices under the rug. It’s a good day for the health and safety of Hoosier women.
