Fetal remains to be laid to rest
SOUTH BEND, Ind.-- More than 2400 fetal remains will be buried in South Bend.
Those remains were found last year in Illinois, many at the home of deceased South Bend abortion Dr. Ulrich Klopfer.
This national story began on September 13th 2019 when the Will County Sheriffs Department found hundreds of medically preserved fetal remains inside Klopfer's garage in Illinois.
It came just 10 days after 79-year-old Ulrich Klopfer died.
Klopfer was believed to be one of Indiana's most prolific abortion doctors after working all over the state in Gary, Fort Wayne and right here in South Bend at the Women's Pavilion off of Ironwood Rd.
However Klopfer had his license suspended indefinitely in August of 2016 after the Medical Licensing Board found a number of violations.
Ever since last year's grim discovery, Right to Life activists and many state officials have been vocal on getting what they call justice for the remains.
They hoped for DNA tests and for the remains to be laid to rest.
While the test were deemed impossible, the remains will be buried in South Bend.
