Walorski Leads House in Moment of Silence for Unborn Children Laid to Rest in Indiana

Remains of 2,411 Abortion Victims Given Dignified Burial After Discovery on Klopfer Property

WASHINGTON – On Thursday U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) led the House of Representatives in a moment of silence for the 2,411 unborn children whose remains were buried Wednesday in a dignified ceremony after being stored for nearly two decades on the property of Indiana abortionist Ulrich Klopfer.

“Such callous disregard for human life should shake us to the core,” Congresswoman Walorski said. “These children deserved justice and dignity. Madam Speaker, I ask my colleagues to join me in observing a moment of silence for the thousands of innocent victims that were laid to rest yesterday.”

Video of Rep. Walorski speaking on the House floor and leading a moment of silence is available here. The text of her remarks is below.

“I rise today to honor the 2,411 unborn children whose remains were finally laid to rest with dignity yesterday in South Bend, Indiana.

“These victims of Indiana’s most prolific abortionist would be in their late teens now, graduating from high school and entering into college. But their innocent lives were cut short, and they were denied a proper burial.

“Instead, their remains sat for almost 20 years in a garage and a car trunk, in moldy boxes and Styrofoam coolers.

“Such callous disregard for human life should shake us to the core. These children deserved justice and dignity.

“To make sure this never happens again, the House must pass the Dignity for Aborted Children Act to build on Indiana’s law, upheld by the Supreme Court, that requires dignified treatment of aborted fetal remains.

“Madam Speaker, I ask my colleagues to join me in observing a moment of silence for the thousands of innocent victims that were laid to rest yesterday.

“Thank you, and I yield back.”
