The family of the late abortionist Ulrich “George” Klopfer made the horrifying discovery earlier this month that he was hoarding the fetal remains of more than 2,200 aborted babies at his Illinois home.

While the Indiana Attorney General’s Office continues to investigate the disturbing disclosures about Klopfer, who died on Sept. 3, pro-life advocates argue that his case highlights the serious lack of regulation in the abortion industry when it comes to safety standards, the disposal of remains and reporting.

Last week, the office of Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill reported after a preliminary investigation that “all the fetuses were aborted by Dr. Klopfer at Indiana clinics located in Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend” and “were aborted from the years 2000 to 2002.” They are also “working to preserve and protect thousands of medical records found both at Dr. Klopfer’s Illinois residence and at his abandoned Indiana abortion clinics.”

“We have a concern about the abandoned records,” Attorney General Hill said in a statement. “Folks who use these clinics have a high degree of expectation of privacy and confidentiality. … It’s deplorable now that folks who went into this procedure, no matter how you feel about this procedure, have to relive that moment.” At a news conference, the attorney general promised to investigate further but also to make sure the remains of the unborn babies “are treated with the proper dignity and respect deserving of anyone.”  ….
