Abortion organizations claim to stand for women – and informing them. But the largest ones are keeping quiet as Americans encounter the horror story of thousands of aborted babies found at an abortionist’s home.
A former Indiana abortionist named Ulrich “George” Klopfer passed away on September 3. But it wasn’t until nine days later that his family discovered the remains of 2,246 unborn babies – babies stored at his home in Will County, Illinois.
Klopfer was known in Indiana for his work at the Women’s Pavilion clinic in South Bend as well as in Gary and Fort Wayne. Local media reported that he worked in the abortion industry for almost 40 years, until he lost his medical license in 2016.
A press release from Will County Sheriff’s Office revealed that an attorney for the Klopfer family, Kevin Bolger, “informed the Coroner’s Office that while going through the doctor’s personal property they discovered what appeared to be fetal remains.”
Upon arrival, detectives, investigators, and coroner’s office representatives “were directed to an area of the property where 2,246 medically preserved fetal remains were located.”
“The Will County Coroner’s Office took possession of the remains.”
Not much else is known about the 2,246. But what Americans do know is this: they were countable. And to be countable, there’s a chance that, rather than being a “clump of cells,” these “medically preserved fetal remains” consisted of human body parts: arms, legs, hands, hearts.
In their language, many in the media referred to the 2,246 as “fetal remains,” from NBC News to the Associated Press. And yet, each one was a human person – a human person who should have had a name, not a number.
Still, these media reports surpassed national abortion organizations like Planned Parenthood and NARAL, who didn’t even acknowledge the story in their press releases or on social media accounts like Twitter.
A neighbor to Klopfer, Lashunda Brown, told an ABC affiliate that after his death, the family “hired someone to bring in one of those huge dumpsters to clean out the garage.”
“They were there for two days cleaning it out and the third day, we saw the police here and started trying to figure out what was going on,” she said. “We didn’t think it was nothing like this though.”
But Klopfer has run into problems with the law before. He once faced criminal charges for not reporting a 13-year-old’s abortion soon enough, WSBT-TV reported in 2014. In a comment to the station, Klopfer responded, “We’re all human beings, we all make mistakes, and we have to deal with the consequences, okay?”
But not this time – not on Earth, at least.
At a news conference held by Indiana Right to Life and Allen County Right to Life, one woman remembered Klopfer performing an abortion on her as a 13 year old. WNDU filmed her testimony.
“Even after much healing and attending a post-abortive retreat, hearing the news of over 2,000 baby remains on George Klopfer’s property stirred up so many emotions, not only for me but for many women reaching out to me. I feel like I have been violated all over again.”
“My whole body went numb from shock,” she continued. “That shock turned into lying in bed sobbing at the thought of my baby being on his property.”
She had a plan of action though.
“I’m currently speaking with attorneys in hopes to sue his estate to get DNA testing done to know if my daughter was one of the babies on his property,” she said.
“If he could have the babies all these years later, I have the right to know if she was one of them.”
That’s because, even with time, “she” was – and is – so much more than just “remains,” or a number.
