Over 2,000 foetal remains were found at home of a doctor who died last week. Authorities found 2,246 preserved remains at the former doctor’s home in north-eastern Illinois. However, the authorities said there’s no evidence medical procedures were performed at the home. Doctors license was already suspended in 2015 by authorities for violating documentation requirements.
Dr Ulrich Klopfer, who died on September 3, was a longtime doctor at an abortion clinic in South Bend, Indiana. “Klopfer was believed to be Indiana’s most prolific abortion doctor, with thousands of procedures performed in multiple Indiana counties over several decades,” the South Bend Tribune reported.
Mike Fichter, the president of Indiana Right to Life, said in a statement sent Friday night that “we are horrified” by the discovery of the fetal remains at Klopfer’s Illinois residence.
He called for Indiana authorities to help determine whether those remains have any connection to abortion operations in Indiana.
“These sickening reports underscore why the abortion industry must be held to the highest scrutiny,” Fichter said in the statement.
Republican U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski, R-Indiana, called the discovery of the fetal remains “sickening beyond words” in a statement released by her office.
“He was responsible for thousands of abortions in Indiana, and his careless treatment of human remains is an outrage,” she said in her statement.
Klopfer in 2014 was accused of waiting months to report an abortion he provided to a 13-year-old girl in South Bend. Doctors must report abortion procedures done on girls under the age of 14 to authorities within three days, according to Indiana’s ABC 57.
