The discovery of 2,246 babies’ remains found at deceased abortionist Ulrich Klopfer’s Illinois home was a shocking revelation, but pro-life groups say they’ve long warned that such macabre practices are not uncommon among abortionists.
At a news conference Thursday, Will County Sheriff Mike Kelley said the remains recovered from Klopfer’s garage were found individually sealed in plastic bags and stored inside 70 cardboard boxes stacked from the floor to nearly reaching the ceiling.
Each bag, he said, was filled with a preservative called Formalin. The bags were also labeled, but investigators did not reveal what was written on the labels, except to say the dates on them indicate the babies were aborted from 2000 to 2002. Klopfer’s clinics in South Bend, Fort Wayne and Gary, Indiana, were all operating at that time.
Kelley said Klopfer’s relatives have continued to be fully cooperative with investigators, and they still don’t know why he stored the aborted babies in his garage.
He added that 50 detectives and personnel from various agencies searched the house and found no other remains. The aborted babies will soon be transferred to the Indiana Attorney General’s office where the bodies will be held as evidence as the investigation continues.
Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow confirmed that there was no evidence that Klopfer performed abortions at his home in Crete.
St. Joseph County Prosecutor Ken Cotter also said that no remains were found when police searched Klopfer’s shuttered clinics in South Bend and Fort Wayne on Thursday.
