Remains Found on Illinois Property After Death of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, Who Performed Abortions for Decades in Indiana

U.S. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) today released the following statement on reports that more than 2,000 fetal remains were found on the Illinois property of Dr. Ulrich “George” Klopfer, who for decades performed abortions in South Bend, Ft. Wayne, and Gary, Ind.:

“Reports that more than 2,000 fetal remains were found on the property of longtime South Bend abortion doctor Ulrich Klopfer are sickening beyond words. He was responsible for thousands of abortions in Indiana, and his careless treatment of human remains is an outrage.

“Every human life is precious, and every woman and baby deserves care and respect. This tragic case shows why abortion providers must be held to strict guidelines and face rigorous oversight. I will be looking into federal legislation to ensure the remains of aborted babies are always treated with dignity, including in the case of chemical abortions.

“State and federal authorities should conduct a full investigation into this case and take any steps necessary to protect Hoosiers, including the unborn, from unsafe practitioners.”
