Authorities discovered the remains of over 2,000 preserved fetuses in the Illinois home of abortion doctor Ulrich George Klopfer nine days after he died.
The 75-year-old has been dubbed “Indiana’s most prolific abortion doctor in history,” with tens of thousands of abortion operations conducted over the course of many decades.
Klopfer worked at Women’s Pavilion Clinic in South Bend, Indiana, as well as clinics in Fort Wayne and Gary, during his career.
Klopfer conducted approximately 2,400 abortions between 2012 and 2013, according to the State Attorney General’s Office.
The lawyer representing his family called the Will County Coroner’s Office in Illinois after he died on September 3rd to report the disturbing discovery.
A total of 2,246 unborn infants had been discovered, all of which had been medically preserved.
2,246 preborn babies were found dead.
2,246 unique, unrepeatable lives.
Let that sink in.
We must all have a renewed commitment to ending this grave evil. https://t.co/9lWAiFREDr

According to a statement by the local sheriff’s office, the Coroner’s Office was petitioned to “provide proper removal.”
“The family is cooperating fully with this investigation,” the statement read. “There is no evidence that any medical procedures were conducted at the property. This is an ongoing joint effort investigation by the Will County Coroner’s Office, the Will County Sheriff’s Office, and the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office.”
Klopfer’s license was suspended indefinitely by the Indiana Medical Licensing Board in 2016 after several allegations of medical misconduct were filed against him.
The State Attorney General’s Office filed a complaint against the abortionist in January 2016, alleging that he violated state law nine times by failing to provide qualified employees to supervise abortion patients.
Klopfer was also accused of conducting an abortion on a 10-year-old girl who had been sexually raped by her uncle–without reporting the sexual abuse to authorities–during the 12 hours of testimony against him. He also let her return home with her parents, who were well aware of the uncle’s mistreatment but declined to file charges.
Klopfer was charged with a class B misdemeanor in June 2014 for failing to report a 13-year-old girl’s abortion within three days, as required by state law. The doctor took over 6 months to complete the report.
The abortionist adamantly defended his actions, claiming that he is only protecting women.
“Women get pregnant, men don’t,” said Klopfer. “We need to respect women making a decision that they think is best in their life. I’m not here to dictate to anybody. I’m not here to judge anybody.”
Rebuking the board to reporters, an angry Klopfer said, “Well, let me put it this way, the Attorney General’s Office and the right-to-lifers are in bed together. How is that?”
It is mandatory in Indiana to bury or cremate fetal remains. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) has stated that she is considering introducing federal legislation to regulate the disposal of aborted fetuses.
The finds at Klopfer’s house, according to Jeanne Mancini, president of the anti-abortion March for Life, are a reminder that abortion activists are campaigning for fewer restrictions, which she calls “outrageous.”
“We urge a thorough investigation of this case so that justice may be done,” said Mancini in a statement. “And so that the public becomes aware of what really happens inside America’s abortion industry.”
