Illinois Right to Life Responds To News That More Than 2,200 Fetuses Were Discovered On Deceased Abortionist’s Property
IRL News Release:
September 16, 2019 – (CHICAGO) Illinois Right to Life (IRL) responded on Monday to news that 2,246 medically-preserved fetuses were found on the Will County, IL property of deceased Indiana abortionist Ulrich Klopfer over the weekend.
Klofper, who died on Sept. 3, was a disgraced physician whose license was suspended in 2016 after he was charged with failure to report abortions performed on at least two girls under the age of 14. Klopfer performed abortions at The Women’s Pavilion – a now-closed clinic at the center of a local South Bend controversy involving Democratic Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg during his time as mayor.
Klopfer owned a home in Crete, IL – about 35 miles south of Chicago in Will County – where it’s been suggested by some media sources that the fetuses were found by his family.
“If these fetuses are not members of our human family, why are we appalled?” said IRL Executive Director Mary Kate Knorr. “Abortion advocates would have us believe that abortion is a benign procedure. This news is a clear indication that abortion isn’t only damaging for the woman and the child – it also has an impact on the doctors performing the abortions, who know they’re taking human lives. Dr. Klopfer’s behavior isn’t consistent with that of an average physician. On the contrary, it’s consistent with the behavior of the handful of infamous serial killers who kept trophies of their victims.”
The fetuses are currently being held by the Will County Coroner’s Office. Illinois Right to Life is awaiting the guidance of Rest in His Arms, a pro-life nonprofit that provides dignified burials for aborted children, and asks all other interested pro-life groups in the state of Illinois to do the same.
