While it was only a preliminary report, there a great deal to be learned from Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill’s investigation into the bizarre hoarding behavior of the late abortionist Ulrich Klopfer.
As NRL News Today readers know, the remains of a total of over 2,400 aborted babies were found in his garage in Crete Township, Will County, Illinois and in the trunk of an old Mercedes Klopfer kept in storage in Dolton, Illinois. The following is an overview of the AG’s preliminary report, released Tuesday, after which I will add a few additional details and background. The report can be read in its entirety here.
Attorney General Curtis Hill has released a preliminary report on his office’s investigation into 2,411 medically preserved fetal remains and thousands of medical records discovered in the fall of 2019 among the personal belongings of the late Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, who performed abortions at clinics in Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend.
Amid new details in the report is the fact that, based on the poor condition of the fetal remains and unreliable nature of the accompanying records, it is not possible to make an independent verification of the identities of the individual fetal remains. Accordingly, Attorney General Hill intends to have the fetal remains interred in a respectful and dignified manner in accordance with state law. Further, the Office of the Attorney General will follow state law in maintaining and safeguarding the medical records until such a time as they can be disposed of properly.
In addition, investigators have determined the remains appear to be from abortions Dr. Klopfer performed in Indiana from 2000 through 2003. At an earlier stage of the investigation, authorities believed the remains came from abortions performed from 2000 through 2002.
“From the time we first learned of the gruesome discovery of these remains,” Attorney General Hill said, “we have sought to exercise our statutory authority with great care and prudence. This case exemplifies the need for strong laws to ensure the dignified disposition of fetal remains, like those passed by the Indiana General Assembly in 2016 and upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2019.”
The preliminary report, which will be followed by a final report in coming months, is attached. It is also published at the Attorney General’s website.
#1. We will know the abortion industry will fight to its last breathe any legislation that requires a dignified and humane disposal of the remains of aborted babies. It’s who they are, it’s how they think. Aborted babies are barely refuse in their minds.
#2. According to Dan Carden, “After Klopfer died Sept. 3, his family found 2,246 bagged fetal remains stored in molding boxes and old Styrofoam containers alongside boxes of personal items, rusting cars, pop cans and random garbage stacked to the ceiling in the garage of Klopfer’s Will County, Illinois, home, according to the report.”
Who does that remind you of? Kermit Gosnell, of course.
The only thing missing is this from the Grand Jury report that investigated Gosnell’s “House of Horrors”: “There was blood on the floor. A stench of urine filled the air. A flea infested cat was wandering through the facility, and there were cat feces on the stairs.”
But, you say, that was Gosnell’s abortion clinic, not his garage. In fact, the preliminary report on Klopfer’s three Indiana abortion clinics talked about them as pigsties. Although all three were disgusting, take this about the Fort Wayne clinic where “The ground floor was extremely cluttered. Boxes , garbage, cleaning supplies, clothing, unopened food and drinks, magazines, and other miscellaneous personal items were strewn about.”
And, in case we forget what police found when they raided Gosnell’s West Philadelphia home. While it had high-end appliances and a piano,
“He just lived in squalor,” Philadelphia Police crime scene investigator John Taggart told NBC10. “He would leave plates of food on the floor. There was stuff everywhere in the bedroom. You couldn’t see the bed.” Of course this squalor was precisely what authorities found at his abortion clinic.
“As soon as they [his investigators] went down into the basement, they were covered in fleas,” Taggart said. “He actually gave us a bottle of flea repellent and said, ‘See what a nice guy I am? I told you there were fleas in the basement.’ He said ‘I didn’t have to tell ya’s’”
#3. To state the obvious, these were (or, in Gosnell’s case, are) sick, sick, men. To state the equally obvious, while they may be extreme even for the baby killing industry, you have to be devoid of basic human empathy to do this day in and day for decades, whether it be killing dozens of babies a month or killing tens of thousands of unborn babies.
