    Indiana's top prosecutor announced Wednesday that he would file no criminal charges or licensing actions after his office completed an investigation into an abortion doctor who kept more than 2,000 sets of fetal remains in his garage before he died last year.

    Attorney General Curtis Hill said the yearlong probe found that Dr. Ulrich Klopfer acted alone when he "failed to effectuate the proper disposition of the fetal remains as required by Indiana law.”

    "No one is believed to have assisted Dr. Klopfer in his actions, and because Dr. Klopfer is dead, he cannot be charged with a crime or with medical misconduct," Hill said in a statement.

    Most of the aborted fetuses, nearly 2,250 of them, were found stashed in the garage of Klopfer’s Will County home in Illinois days after his death on Sept. 3, 2019. Weeks later, the bones of 165 additional fetuses were found in the trunk of one of the cars he kept at an outdoor lot near Chicago.

    All fetal remains were medically preserved, packaged and marked with patients’ personal health information. They appear to be from abortions Klopfer performed at three Indiana clinics from 2000 to 2003, according to a final report.
    Maybe they should have RELEASED those records and published them online. So we can see who these women are who aborted so late into their pregnancies (and I highly doubt it was for medical reasons).


    "The fetal remains were in various states of decay," the report states. "The remains were mostly found inside molding boxes and old styrofoam coolers containing large red medical waste bags."

    The remains found in the garage were placed among "boxes of personal items, rusting cars, multitudes of soda cans, and other random garbage stacked high to the ceiling," according to the report.

    The investigation also revealed that Klopfer failed to properly dispose of thousands of patient health records, which were found next to the boxes of fetal remains in his garage and vehicle. Many of those records included patients' names, ages and Social Security numbers.

    The 75-year-old doctor was a controversial figure who performed tens of thousands of abortions over the course of his decades-long career. He was also routinely accused of medical malpractice and had his license suspended in 2016 after multiple licensing actions and criminal charges in Indiana's Lake and St. Joseph counties, according to the attorney general’s office.

    The recovered fetuses were laid to rest in February at a cemetery in South Bend, one of the Indiana cities where Klopfer worked.

    "This horrific ordeal is exactly why we need strong laws to ensure the dignified disposition of fetal remains. I was humbled to provide these precious babies a proper burial in South Bend," Hill said Wednesday. "We hope the results of our investigation provide much-needed closure to everyone who has been impacted by this gruesome case."​

    Fetal remains and bones suggest these abortions were pretty far along into the pregnancy, if not technically considered "late term".

    They only found this because the doctor died. I wonder, how many other doctors like this are there out there?

    Pretty sure none of my doctors have fetal remains in their garages or buried in their yards. At least I hope not, maybe I should read their terms of service more closely.
