Just a few days ago, the shocking (and repulsive) news broke that, following the death of Indiana abortionist Ulrich Klopfer, police discovered 2,246 fetal remains on his property.
Klopfer had a history of transgressions (nine, to be exact), including failure to report the statutory rapes of a 13-year-old and a 10-year-old. LifeSiteNews reported:
On its abortiondocs.org database, Operation Rescue lists two Indiana abortion facilities as being affiliated with Klopfer. The lack of evidence that any of the babies were killed on Klopfer’s Illinois property raises the possibility they were aborted in Indiana and transported across state lines – something that could be grounds for federal involvement.
The South Bend Tribune, at the time Klopfer’s license was revoked, went more in-depth regarding his various transgressions. They also noted that Klopfer was “likely Indiana’s most prolific abortion doctor in history with numbers going into the tens of thousands of procedures in multiple counties over several decades.”
Let that sink in a minute. Let’s pick a number (on the low end) of that range and say that Klopfer did 15,000 abortions during his lifetime. In that scenario, he kept about 15% of the bodies. Personally, when we first saw the number of fetuses found, we had a hard time wrapping our minds around the number. And it’s 15% (or likely less) of Klopfer’s total body count.
Needless to say, there is A LOT to unpack here.
South Bend was Already Making Headlines
Before this grisly news, South Bend was already making abortion-related headlines for several reasons. It started when pro-abortion mayor Pete Buttigieg allowed an abortion facility to open and begin operating without a license. The facility, Whole Woman’s Health, believes itself to be above the law – as most abortion facilities do. The industry fights tooth and nail to be exempt from health inspections, and even insists on pardons when they fail them.
After the hype about Whole Woman’s Health abated a bit, Mayor Pete decided to dig himself a little deeper in the pro-abortion pit by using the Bible to validate his life-destroying platform. But, in an interview on Tucker Carlson that made the whole pro-life movement giddy, Mayor Pete’s own family denounced his heresy and urged him to tone it down. Watch below:
Mike Pence is Talking About It
Which we are not surprised about. Vice President Pence was formerly the Governor of Indiana, and served the pro-life movement while in that role. He tweeted:
This is a (Gross) Trend
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen abortionists doing sketchy stuff with the babies they killed. It shouldn’t really shock anyone that “doctors” who kill people for a living, hundreds per month, may have some disturbing tendencies. Kermit Gosnell, the Philadelphia abortionist serving multiple life sentences for killing babies post-birth, kept jars of feet from his victims. The collection of “trophies” is commonly observed in serial killer cases. Gosnell (and now Klopfer) are the most infamous cases of fetal remain abuse, but there are smaller-scale instances as well. For instance, Michigan abortionist Michael Roth was charged with illegally possessing 15 jars of fetal bodies in his personal vehicle (found by police after he hit a pedestrian with his car).
Fetal Burial Laws Matter
Fetal burial laws are not some nonsense gag rules with no real purpose. Fetal burial laws keep creepy, mentally-ill abortionists from creating jarred preborn cemeteries at their homes. There’s obviously some ire in that statement, but in all seriousness, these laws ensure that every aborted baby is accounted for. Had burial laws been in place, someone would have known that thousands of fetal remains had gone “missing.”
Pro-abortion politicians and supporters have demonized pro-life people so much that they won’t even let us give abortion victims a proper burial. They don’t care that we view them as people, not medical trash. Fetal burial laws don’t even affect abortion. The abortion has already taken their lives. Yet they won’t even allow us in the conversation after the deed’s been done.
Pro-life advocates will continue exposing the grim reality of the abortion industry, from scandals and dirty business practices to infanticide and serial killing trophy collectors. It’s not possible to commit mass acts of violence against a group of people in a virtuous manner; we will continue to call out these hideous vices.
And we’ll see if Pete Buttigieg learns anything, seeing as he was just defending Whole Woman’s Health last month despite a history of violations. If anything, he may want to be a bit more careful about who he throws his support to. They may just turn up with a couple thousand corpses.
Our thoughts are with the women (and men) who may be wondering if their child is among these thousands found in Klopfer’s home. Those seeking healing after abortion can contact resources like Hope After Abortion and Abortion Changes You.
