Police say over 2,000 medically preserved fetal remains were found on the property of Ulrich George Klopfer, a late abortion doctor who used to operate a South Bend clinic.
Klopfer died on Sept. 3.
On Sept. 12, the Will County (Illinois) Coroner’s Office received a call from an attorney representing his family. They reported finding fetal remains among Klopfer’s personal property and requested proper removal.
Will County sheriff’s detectives, crime scene investigators and representatives from the coroner’s office went to the address and were directed to an area of the property where 2,246 medically preserved fetal remains were located.
“Indiana recently passed a law that fetal remains need to be given proper burial or cremated,” said Jackie Appleman Executive Director with Saint Joseph County Right to Life.
The coroner’s office took possession of the remains.
