Nine days after abortion doctor Ulrich George Klopfer died, authorities uncovered the remains of over 2,000 preserved fetuses in his Illinois home.
The 75-year-old was described as “Indiana’s most prolific abortion doctor in history,” with the number of abortion procedures he performed soaring into the tens of thousands over the span of several decades. Throughout the course of his career, Klopfer worked at Women’s Pavilion Clinic in South Bend, Indiana, and at clinics in Fort Wayne and Gary.
According to the State Attorney General’s Office, Klopfer performed over 2,400 abortions from 2012 to 2013 alone.
After he passed away on September 3rd, the lawyer representing his family contacted the Will County Coroner’s Office in Illinois to report the unsettling discovery. Exactly 2,246 unborn babies had been found, fully medically preserved.
2,246 preborn babies 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 had been suspended indefinitely in 2016 by the Indiana Medical Licensing Board after multiple complaints were made against him for medical misconduct.
In January 2016, the State Attorney General’s Office filed a complaint against the abortionist, claiming he broke state law nine times by failing to provide qualified staff to oversee patients receiving abortions.
During the 12 hours of testimony against Klopfer, he was also accused of performing an abortion on a 10-year-old girl who was sexually assaulted by her uncle–without reporting the sexual abuse to authorities. He also allowed her to go home with her parents who were well aware of the uncle’s abuse and refused to press charges.
In June 2014, Klopfer was charged with a class B misdemeanor for failing to report an abortion he performed on a 13-year-old girl within 3 days, as is required by state law. It took the doctor over 6 months to file the report.
The abortionist vehemently defended his misconduct in saying he’s merely 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?”
In Indiana, it’s required that fetal remains are buried or cremated. Rep. Jackie Walorski (R-Ind.) said that she’s now considering pushing for federal legislation regarding the proper disposal of aborted fetuses.
President of the anti-abortion March for Life, Jeanne Mancini, said the findings in Klopfer’s home are a reminder that it’s “outrageous” that abortion activists are fighting for fewer regulations.
“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.”
