SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Thousands of fetal remains that were found at an abortion doctor’s suburban Chicago garage last year were buried Wednesday at an Indiana cemetery.

Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill joined more than 100 people that afternoon at the Southlawn Cemetery by the Palmer Funeral Home in South Bend, to pay their respects to the 2,411 fetal remains.

The article goes on to state the following:

Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, who died Sept. 3 at 79, was one of the Midwest’s most prolific abortion doctors. He performed the abortions from 2000 to 2002, mainly in Indiana – a state with some of the nation’s toughest anti-abortion laws – at clinics in South Bend, Gary and Fort Wayne. He performed tens of thousands of abortions over 40 years, as the only abortion provider in the three cities. Most of the remains were found in the garage of his Illinois home, with others found in one of his vehicles.


Klopfer’s medical license was suspended in 2016.

Republican Attorney General Curtis Hill spoke at the ceremony.

“The shocking discovery” of the remains “was horrifying to anyone with normal sensibilities,” he said .

“Regrettably, there is no shortage of depravity in our world today, including due regard for the most vulnerable among us.”

Hill was asked about the gestation age of the remains.

“That’s hard to say. … There certainly were some indications that some of the remains would have been outside of the appropriate standard of when it would be appropriate for someone to seek an abortion or qualify for an abortion … beyond the first trimester,” he said.

The fetal remains were found in September, each in small plastic medical bags filled with a chemical preservative called formalin. Each of the bags were stored in separate cardboard boxes.
