The remains of over 2,000 unborn babies were found inside the Illinois home of an abortion doctor who recently passed away, Will County authorities said.
Family members of Dr. Ulrich “George” Klopfer, 75, who passed away on September 3, found the remains while going through his belongings at his residence in Will County, around 45 miles southwest of Chicago, according to FOX 59. There is no evidence to suggest Klopfer performed abortions or any other medical procedures at his home, according to police.
Klopfer had a medical practice at the Women’s Pavilion in South Bend, Indiana, but his license was suspended in 2016 for “violating several notice and documentation requirements” and failure to provide reasonable care. He also failed to report to the state after giving an abortion to a 10-year-old, South Bend Tribune reports.
Klopfer told the Indiana Medical Licensing Board that he performed the abortion out of state on a young girl who had been raped by her uncle. He claimed the girl was with both of her parents at the time, therefore he didn’t report the incident to the state.
Klopfer, who was considered one Indiana’s most “prolific abortion doctor in history,” also performed abortions at practices in Gary and Fort Wayne.
Klopfer’s family called the police after discovering the remains. According to the Will County Sheriff’s Office, the “family is cooperating fully with this investigation.”
The Will County later coroner took possession of the remains.
