At a Friday morning press conference, Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill said his office “is now starting the process to determine the best they can why a former South Bend abortion doctor kept more than 2,200 preserved fetal remains in his Illinois home,” according to the South Bend Tribune’s Lincoln Wright. “We are going to bring our babies home and make sure they are treated with the proper dignity and respect for babies born on Hoosier soil,” Hill said.
As NRL News Today reported, the wife of the late abortionist Ulrich Klopfer and her sister discovered the babies’ remains while going through her husband’s personal effects in a garage in their home in Crete, Illinois, about an hour outside Chicago. In an eerie resemblance to the home of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, NPR reported
The house was mostly “floor to ceiling junk,” according to Kevin Bolger, an attorney for the widow, and the doctor had also filled up the garage and several outbuildings.
“Imagine losing your husband, leaving you with this dump, and then finding out that he’s done this,” Bolger says. “I mean this is like something out of The Twilight Zone. And she’s totally freaked out about it.”
At a Thursday news conference, Will County Sheriff Mike Kelley told reporters, “Over 70 cardboard boxes of various sizes contained these remains,” adding, “The remains discovered were inside … small sealed plastic bags, which contained … a chemical used to preserve biological material.”
According to the markings, the boxes were dated with the years 2000 to 2002. To make sure there were no more remains in the Klopfer’s 5-bedroom home, Kelley said police went through “hundreds and hundreds of boxes.”
“I can tell you, the 31 years I’ve been doing this job, I have never seen anything like this, ever. It is a strange, one of those once-in-a-lifetime things,” he said.
Wright also reported that Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow “would not answer questions about the gestational age of the remains.” Glasow said Illinois officials have “concluded what we can do here” because the remains coincide “with the time (Klopfer) would have been performing abortions in Indiana.”
At his press conference, AG Hill said that although this was all “new territory”
the Attorney General’s Office has already put in some measures for those who think they might be connected to the remains. Anyone with concerns can call 317-234-6663, a special number set up for this matter, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The babies’ remains, currently secured in Illinois, will remain there “until Hill’s office can find a suitable storage area in Indiana to transfer them to,” Wright reported.
There is also the whole issue of confidentiality. Although authorities found no additional remains in Klopfer’s three Indiana abortion clinics, they did find thousands of abandoned medical records
Wright explained that Hill had taken custody of the records “to ensure patient confidentiality is kept intact. The Attorney General’s Office will be reviewing the records and will also investigate if any of Klopfer’s former employees were connected.”
As NRL News Today reported yesterday, there are many other unanswered questions. And, as much as the Abortion Industry hates it, Klopfer’s bizarre behavior shines the spotlight not only on a man who aborted at least “tens of thousands” of babies, but other abortionists who have treated women horribly.
