Ulrich George Klopfer died on September 3 and left his earthly possessions behind for someone else to inherit.
If you haven’t yet heard about it, Klopfer performed abortions for years in facilities in South Bend, Fort Wayne, and Gary, Indiana. His medical license had been suspended by the Indiana Medical Licensing Board for numerous violations. He also kept 2, 246 medically preserved (assume formaldehyde or something similar) remains of aborted babies in his home in Will County, Illinois, which were discovered by his family after his death. The family alerted local authorities of the discovery and is cooperating fully with them in the investigation. It is not believed that any abortions were performed at the residence, making it almost certain that most, if not all, of these aborted human remains came from the three clinics Klopfer worked at in Indiana.
The question which is begging to be asked is this. Do these remains belong to the State of Illinois which has a liberal, tolerant, and accommodating attitude towards abortion? Do they belong to the State of Indiana which is far more conservative and disapproving of the practice? In 2016, Indiana passed a law mandating that the bodies of aborted babies either be cremated or buried. If it is determined that Indiana law takes precedence, as I expect will happen, then the remains will have to be returned to the State and disposed of according to its law, meaning a huge amount of publicity will be generated. My gut feeling is that most of it will not be beneficial to the abortion industry.
There is one other thing to consider. If these babies were aborted in Indiana and transported across the state line into Illinois, then this could very well become a federal case. Considering that Vice-President Mike Pence was the governor of Indiana in 2016 and signed HB1337 into law, the odds are quite good that the White House and federal prosecutors will be involved in this.
Note also that HB1337 expressly “…Prohibits an individual from acquiring, receiving, selling, or transferring fetal tissue. Makes it a Level 5 felony to unlawfully: (1) transfer; and (2) collect fetal tissue…”. Since Ulrich Klopfer was an individual, irrespective of his profession, he could have been convicted of a Level 5 felony, which carries a penalty of one to six years in prison and up to $10,000.00 in fines.
Multiplied by 2,246 would have put Klopfer out of the killing business forever. As it is, he has only been transferred into a higher court, one from which there is no appeal.
