Indiana lawmakers seek investigation into deceased abortion doctor’s practice

STATEHOUSE (Sept. 15, 2019) – State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) urges Indiana’s Attorney General to investigate the Indiana abortion clinics where Dr. Ulrich Klopfer performed abortion procedures.

“The revelation of over 2,200 fetal remains being found on the property of the late Dr. Klopfer in Illinois is seriously disturbing,” said Bacon. “Since these remains were found in Illinois, we are very concerned there may be other remains in the Indiana clinics where he performed abortions.”

Klopfer was a doctor at clinics in Gary, South Bend and Fort Wayne. Klopfer passed away earlier this month on September 3. The Will County Coroner’s office in Illinois is now in possession of the fetal remains found by Klopfer’s family at his home.

State Sen. Liz Brown (R-Fort Wayne), State Rep. Christy Stutzman (R-Goshen) and State Rep. Denny Zent (R-Angola) have joined Bacon in urging the Indiana Attorney General’s office for a formal investigation.

“We would like for an investigation done with the three counties involved to ensure that no fetal remains are being stored there and if Indiana fetal remains were illegally transported across state lines,” said Bacon.


State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) represents House District 75, 
which includes portions of Warrick, Pike and Spencer counties.
