Abortionist Ulrich Klopfer kept thousands of dead babies but inspires little curiosity


2019.09.19 10:54

There’s something sick in America’s abortion industry. What else would account for a doctor who collected thousands of dead babies in some kind of twisted hobby that he hid from his allegedly unsuspecting wife?

Two thousand two hundred and forty-six fetuses were found “medically preserved” in Ulrich Klopfer’s garage last week after he died on Sept. 3. And now the attorneys general of Illinois and Indiana are investigating how the human remains got from Klopfer’s network of Indiana abortion clinics to his rural Illinois home and what laws might have been violated.

Klopfer isn’t the only abortionist to enjoy keeping trophies of his grisly work close at hand. America’s most infamous baby killer, Kermit Gosnell, also kept fetal body parts in “milk jugs and glass jars” at his clinic in Philadelphia before he was convicted in 2013 on three counts of murder for snipping the spinal cords of babies born alive.

Like Gosnell, Klopfer’s clinics shut down after state inspectors found worrying medical and record-keeping problems.

While Klopfer is not alleged to have been a murderer, his ethical standards appear not to have been very high. In defending himself and his clinics against state allegations, the Illinois physician recounted how he performed an abortion on a 10-year-old girl who was raped by her uncle, never reporting the crime to police and, as a result, helping her parents cover up the atrocity by a family member. State officials cited the sickening defense as part of their reason for stripping him of his medical license. He was previously charged with failing to report performing abortions on two 13-year-olds.

According to a complaint filed by the Indiana Medical Licensing Board, Klopfer worked in clinics in South Bend, Gary and Fort Wayne from 2012 to 2015.

With thousands of ghoulishly stored dead bodies straight out of a horror movie, medical malpractice and a multistate mystery, you’d think the news media would be all over this story. Not so much.

At my request, the conservative Media Research Center looked into coverage of Klopfer and found little interest. No coverage on the nightly broadcast news. Nothing on MSNBC. A story on CNN and a few on Fox News. Nationalnewspapers each  handled it with one or two stories.

And while this case is unique, it is not like there aren’t regular reports of shady doings at the nation’s abortion clinics. In the six years since Gosnell’s conviction, abortion clinics have been shut down and others have been cited for serious medical problems.

Only last month, Planned Parenthood Arizona was ordered to pay $3 million to a whistleblower who was fired after she reported that a doctor appeared to be making medical mistakes resulting in complications for patients at one of its facilities.

More typical is a 2016 Washington Post story about a local abortion clinic cited for “dirty equipment, expired medication in unlocked cabinets, lax storage of medical records and a failure of staff to sterilize and maintain medical equipment and follow hand-washing protocols.”

“In one case,” The Post reported, “a patient had to be rushed to a local emergency room for prolonged bleeding after sutures were not available at the clinic. … In another, a nurse used a plunger to unstop a toilet and then held a patient’s hand during a surgical procedure without changing scrubs.”

The doctor who owned that clinic already had his medical license temporarily suspended, relinquished or revoked or has faced criminal charges in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Florida and California.

There’s a lot to be curious about. How does a doctor get in trouble in five states and yet remain an abortionist in other states that claim to care about women? Why would Planned Parenthood fire a 15-year employee rather than address concerns for patient safety? How does a doctor amass enough dead bodies in his garage to do a passable imitation of a World War II mass grave? Didn’t his employees notice he was taking home baby parts?

How does a story this sensational — that happens to have partly taken place in presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s hometown, where hes the mayor — not get more than cursory attention from the national news media? Now there’s a question.
