More than 2,400 aborted babies will be buried in South Bend this week

By Jonathon Van Maren

In my 2016 book The Culture War, I described coming face-to-face with an abortion victim for the first time: A little baby boy, retrieved from a dumpster behind an abortion clinic, floating in a jar. For me, that little boy will always represent all of the victims of abortion, the millions upon millions of unseen children who arrived in this world uncelebrated and were softly suctioned away soon afterwards. If these children were mourned by their parents, they were mourned too late.

Some of them, at least, were mourned later, by pro-life activists who tenderly retrieved them from the trash and buried them in cemeteries, granting them the respect in death that they never received in life. I saw a gravestone marking where some of them were committed to the earth back in 2014, in a Michigan graveyard. Their headstone read simply: “Twenty Three Unborn Children, Victims of Abortion.  Laid To Rest May 3, 2008. He will wipe every tear from their eyes.”

Another sad funeral will take place this week, for the more than 2,000 dead babies discovered on the property of deceased abortionist Dr. Ulrich Klopfer of South Bend, Indiana tomorrow. South Bend, you may remember, is the hometown of former mayor and current abortion extremist Pete Buttigieg, who supports abortion up until birth. From the Associated Press:

More than 2,400 sets of fetal remains found last year in the Illinois garage and a car of an Indiana abortion doctor after he died will be buried Wednesday at a northern Indiana cemetery.

The 2,411 sets of fetal remains that resulted from abortions Dr. Ulrich Klopfer performed in Indiana will be “memorialized” Wednesday afternoon at a graveside service at Southlawn Cemetery and Palmer Funeral Home in South Bend, Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill’s office said Monday.

Hill’s office did not immediately respond to messages left Monday asking whether the burial space had been donated. He had previously said Roman Catholic dioceses in Indiana had offered to bury the remains, which were transferred in October to the St. Joseph County coroner’s office in South Bend.

Klopfer died Sept. 3 at age 79. Days later, relatives told authorities they had found fetal remains in his garage in Will County, Illinois. Officials found 2,246 sets of fetal remains in that building. Another 165 sets of fetal remains were found in October in the trunk of a car owned by Klopfer that was parked at a Chicago-area storage unit. All of the remains resulted from abortions Klopfer performed at his now-shuttered clinics in Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend. Officials believe those abortions were performed between 2000 and 2003.

Klopfer’s medical license was suspended in 2016 by Indiana regulators who cited shoddy record-keeping and substandard patient monitoring.

Think about that for a moment tomorrow, as you go about your day. More than 2,400 babies will be buried. Babies that were legally killed in the United States of America, with the procedure that killed them being trumpeted as a precious right by every single Democratic candidate running for the presidency.

And remember that as those little ones are being laid to rest, thousands more will be killed in clinics across the country. May God have mercy on us.

      Brenda please don’t be sad? Try not to let the storms of life get you down. Jesus will give you peace in the midst of the storm. Its the attack of the enemy he wants our Souls. God has a plan, though its hard to see it now. You feel you’re walking all alone but He’s there no doubt. So when the storms around you rages and you’re tossed to and fro. When you’re faced with life’s decisions, not sure which way to go? STAND STILL and let God move. Standing still is hard to do. But when you feel you have reached the end, He will make a way for YOU. So STAND STILL and LET GOD MOVE. You’re in my prayers.

        Thank you for this! Such beautiful words of Truth. But the evil of this world is so hard to bear – especially for the children! I am weeping…God bless you, and may He have mercy on us all!

    Let’s call this what it truly is. It has nothing to do with Pro Choice. Choice is what a woman makes before she gets pregnant. After that, this can only be called one thing – Pro Murder!

    I am speechless my heart is so broken I cannot even say what I feel. It is for sure at this is murder once that heart begins to beat there are no way else to explain it except it’s not just your body anymore you are taking the life of another body. With so many other ways to prevent pregnancy it seems the cruelest of all. And if this is what the Democrats believe I will never vote for another Democrat because that would put the blood of those babies on my hands as well.

  3. Richard L. Williams says:

    Do not be deceived by overgeneralization. Not all Democrats are accepters of abortion. The article did say that all the Democratic presidential candidates were advocates of prochoice. That may be true. I honestly don’t know. But I can assure you that not all Democrats embrace abortion.
    Also I would think the doctor mentioned in this article must surely be an exception. I have never heard of anything like this before. But that doesnt make it any more moral.

    And where are the priests from the University of Noter Dame? Are you there praying for these babies or are you supporting the agenda to allow this to happen? Tell me Fr. Jenkins?!
