The bodies of 2,245 babies were found medically preserved at the residence of an abortion doctor a week and a half after his death.
Dr. Ulrich Klopfer died on Septemer 3. Shortly after his death, family members discovered the bodies.
“On September 12, 2019 at approximately 3:30pm, the Will County Coroner’s Office received a telephone call from an attorney representing the family of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer who passed away on September 3, 2019,” a press release from the Will County, Illinois Sheriff’s Office stated. “Personnel were directed to an area of the property where 2,246 medically preserved fetal remains were located.”
Authorities say there is no evidence that any medical procedures were conducted at the property.
Dr. Klopfer was an osteopathic physician whose Indiana license was “suspended for failure to keep abreast of current professional theory or practice,” according to a report by the New York Times. Klopfer’s Illinois license to practice medicine in Illinois had expired in the 1990’s.
The Journal Gazette of Fort Wayne described Klopfer as “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.”
In 2016, Klopfer’s license was suspended for six months, after a hearing which resulted in the doctor being found guilty of five of the nine charges he faced. Klopfer told the board he had performed an abortion on a 10 year old girl who had been raped by a relative.
Klopfer did not report the incident to the authorities and allowed the girl to leave with parents who chose not to call police, the Journal Gazette reported.
Five years ago, Klopfer faced criminal charges in two counties for taking too long to report a 13 year old’s sexual activity. “We’re all human beings, we all make mistakes, and we all have to deal with the consequences,” Klopfer told a reporter from WSBT 22 in a 2014 report.
