Indiana mayor hopes 2,246 baby corpses found won’t impact access to abortion

On September 19, 2019, South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg broke his silence regarding the discovery 2,246 bodies of aborted babies at the home of notorious and recently deceased abortionist Ulrich Klopfer. He claimed the situation was “disturbing” but shouldn’t reflect on the legality of abortion.


The Will County Sheriff’s Office announced that a Klopfer family attorney had notified the county coroner’s office “that while going through the doctor’s personal property they discovered what appeared to be fetal remains and requested that the Will County Coroner’s Office provide proper removal.” Authorities subsequently found and removed “2,246 medically preserved fetal remains.”

The case has potential ramifications for Pete Buttigieg, who is running in the Democrat presidential primary. As mayor he defended other scandal-plagued abortion centers in the area such as Whole Woman’s Health Alliance, whose Texas locations were found in 2017 to have committed several hygiene violations.

“Like everyone, I find the news out of Illinois extremely disturbing, and I think it’s important that it be fully investigated,” he told WSBT. “I also hope it doesn’t get caught up in politics at a time when women need access to healthcare. (…)”

Pro-lifers responded by noting it was unclear what exactly would be “disturbing” about the situation from a perspective that rejects preborn personhood and considers killing those babies in the first place to have been “healthcare.”
