By now you’ve probably heard the horrifying story of abortionist Ulrich “George” Klopfer, who transported 2,246 aborted children from his abortion facility in Indiana to his home in Illinois.

Faced with this depravity, I am relieved to see 67 members of Congress, led by Indiana Representatives Jackie Walorski and Jim Banks, stand up and demand answers.

Sadly, Klopfer had been on our radar for some time. He was even referenced in Defending Life 2019 as one of the many bad actors of the abortion industry. Thanks to the tireless efforts of pro-life activists who filed over 2,000 complaints related to other malfeasance, Klopfer’s medical license was suspended in 2015.

After Klopfer lost his license, Indiana state legislators passed a human fetal remains law in 2016, which was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2019. The law adds a layer of transparency and accountability to the state, in addition to upholding the dignity and humanity of the unborn. 

It is similar to AUL’s Unborn Infant Dignity Act, which has been enacted into law in just ten states.

Had this law been in effect while Klopfer was performing abortions, he and his staff would have had to file over 2,246 falsified reports to the state of Indiana. It would be nearly impossible for this to go unnoticed or unchallenged by the state government, his staff, or even the women themselves.

Klopfer’s actions undoubtedly violated Indiana medical waste laws, but he didn’t care. Nor did he care about the thousands of women—his patients—who did not consent to allowing him to take the bodies of their deceased infants across state lines for a yet unknown reason.

I am feeling more motivated than ever to strengthen legal protections for women, girls, and babies in all 50 states. This can never happen again.
