Indiana’s attorney general held a service for the remains of more than 2,400 unborn babies found in a late abortionist’s home and car last year.
According to the Daily Caller, Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill held a funeral service on Wednesday where he laid to rest the 2,411 unborn babies whose fetal remains were kept hidden by abortionist Ulrich Klopfer.
“We lay to rest the remains of 2,411 unborn children. In doing so, we fulfill our obligation as a state pursuant to law and conscience to the unborn babies whose lives were terminated through abortions performed in clinics in Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend,” Hill said in his statement at the service.
“Although these abortions took place from 2000 to 2003, until today, the remains had yet to receive an appropriate resting place,” He added.
“The shocking discovery of 2,411 medically preserved fetal remains in Illinois, left in a garage and in the trunk of a car was horrifying to anyone with normal sensibilities.
“Regrettably, there is no shortage of depravity in our world today, including due regard for the most vulnerable among us, and so, we brought them home, back to Indiana.”
“These babies deserved better than a cold, dark garage or the trunk of a car,” Hill added, according to CNN.
Also at the ceremony, Hill noted that it appears several of the remains may belong to babies who were aborted illegally. He said, “There were some indications that some of the remains would have been outside the appropriate standard … late-term or beyond the first trimester.” This possibility, Hill noted, is still under investigation.
As Christian Headlines reported in September, following his death, Klopfer’s family discovered 2,246 medically preserved remains in his house in Will County, Illinois while sorting through his belongings. Later, police searched the 75-year-old’s car and found additional remains.
Klopfer conducted abortions for 43 years until his license was suspended in 2015, CNN reports. During his four decades-long career, Klopfer ran a women’s health facility in South Bend, Indiana, and operated two other abortion clinics across Indiana, the South Bend Tribune reports.
