Raid of Abortion Doctor's Clinic Uncovers Fetal Remains
Friday, September 20, 2019

Illinois authorities are reporting that more than 2,200 fetal remains were found at the Illinois home of an abortion doctor who died earlier this month who practiced in both Fort Wayne and South Bend, all of this coinciding with the raid of the doctor's Fort Wayne facility on Thursday. The remains are believed to be from abortions conducted between 2000 and 2002.

In a news conference Thursday, state officials released that all the abortions were conducted within the state of Indiana by Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, and that the fetal remains will be sent to Indiana, where authorities there are still investigating. Officials declined to disclose on how they know when the abortions were performed.

Illinois officials are reported to be cooperating with Indiana investigators, but it appears that the only laws that Klopfer may have violated were on disposal of fetal remains and failing to do various required paperwork with each procedure.
