Bodies of over 2,000 unborn babies found on dead abortionist’s property
The bodies of 2,246 aborted babies were found in the home of a recently deceased abortionist Dr. Ulrich Klopfer who committed abortions at The Women’s Pavilion in South Bend, Indiana – home to the University of Notre Dame – and at other Indiana facilities until his medical license was suspended in 2016. “We are horrified by the reports” commented Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life.
Dr. Ulrich “George” Klopfer died Sept. 3. Nine days later, on Sept. 12, his family called police after finding fetal remains on his property.
The Will County Sheriff’s Office announced on September 13 that “an attorney representing the family of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer” called the county coroner’s office on September 12 to inform them “that while going through the doctor’s personal property they discovered what appeared to be fetal remains and requested that the Will County Coroner’s Office provide proper removal.”
“Will County Sheriff’s Detectives, Crime Scene Investigators and representatives from the Will County Coroner’s Office arrived at an address in unincorporated Will County,” the sheriff’s office said in a press release. “Personnel were directed to an area of the property where 2,246 medically preserved fetal remains were located. The Will County Coroner’s Office took possession of the remains.”
“The family is cooperating fully with this investigation. There is no evidence that any medical procedures were conducted at the property.”
“We are horrified by the reports of over 2,000 fetal remains being found on the property of Klopfer, a man who operated abortion facilities in Gary, South Bend and Fort Wayne,” commented Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. He continued:
“These sickening reports underscore why the abortion industry must be held to the highest scrutiny. We are calling on Indiana authorities to join in the investigation to determine if these fetal remains have any connection to abortion operations, or personnel, in Indiana.”
On its abortiondocs.org database, Operation Rescue lists two Indiana abortion facilities as being affiliated with Klopfer. The lack of evidence that any of the babies were killed on Klopfer’s Illinois property raises the possibility they were aborted in Indiana and transported across state lines – something that could be grounds for federal involvement. Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger told LifeSiteNews she was not aware of Klopfer operating any abortion centers in Illinois.
Dr. Monica Migliorino Miller, director of Citizens for a Pro-Life Society (CPLS) and a longtime pro-life activist, told LifeSiteNews that sadly, she wasn’t surprised by the grisly discovery.
As the watchdog group Operation Rescue has extensively documented, Klopfer had a history of abuses, including failing to report statutory rape of a 13-year-old and a 10-year-old. He sent the latter home with her parents, who knew their daughter was raped by her uncle but didn’t want him prosecuted, without reporting it to the police.
“We grieve for the thousands of innocent victims of Ulrich Klopfer. Their humanity is undeniable,” said Marjorie Dannenfelser, President of the Susan B. Anthony List. “This devastating discovery proves Kermit Gosnell’s ‘House of Horrors’ was not an outlier and shows the U.S. Supreme Court ruled correctly in upholding Indiana’s law…”
“We hope Klopfer’s victims will finally be treated with respect, and that this atrocity will awaken hearts and consciences across the nation to the brutal reality of abortion.”
