Local News

INDIANAPOLIS (WEHT) – Attorney General Curtis Hill announced on Friday that his office will transport the remains of 2,246 fetuses back to Indiana after they were discovered earlier this month at the home of the late Dr. Ulrich Klopfer.

A preliminary investigation showed all the fetuses were aborted by Dr. Klopfer at Indiana clinics located in Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend, Hill said.

“We are going to continue this matter to determine as best we can exactly what happened here,” Attorney General Hill said at a press conference. “But in the meantime, I can tell you that we are going to bring our babies home and make sure they are treated with the proper dignity and respect deserving of anyone.”

State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) released this statement Friday in connection with the incident:

“The state is working to bring the remains of aborted Hoosier children back to Indiana to lay them to rest. I will continue to work with the Indiana Department of Health to ensure that all children, born or unborn, are treated with the respect and dignity that all human life deserves. A preliminary investigation is still ongoing, and anyone who may have further information or connections to this matter needs to contact the Attorney General’s office at 317-234-6663 or questions@atg.in.gov.”
