AG Hill: Fetal Remains Are Back Home In Indiana

More than 2,000 aborted fetuses have been transported back to Indiana from Illinois for proper disposition.

(Indianapolis, Ind.) – More than 2,000 aborted fetuses have been transported back to Indiana.

Attorney General Curtis Hill announced Thursday that he has overseen the transportation of 2,246 aborted fetuses back to Indiana after they were discovered in September at the Illinois home of the late Dr. Ulrich Klopfer.

An investigation revealed that the fetuses were aborted by Dr. Klopfer at Indiana clinics in Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend.

“This investigation has been a team effort involving multiple offices and agencies since the day it began, and it remains a team effort as we proceed forward,” Attorney General Hill said. “Our priority throughout this process is to give proper respect to the remains of these unborn children and to the women and families associated with them. We are still working through the decision-making process in regard to ultimate disposition of these remains, and we will continue to proceed with appropriate care and consideration at each step of the way. For now, we can simply let everyone know that these remains are back home in Indiana.”

Besides ensuring that the remains receive appropriate disposition under Indiana law, Hill says his office is working to preserve and protect thousands of medical records found both at Klopfer’s Illinois residence and at his abandoned Indiana abortion clinics.

The Office of the Attorney General has set up a phone number and email address for anyone with possible connections to the fetal remains who wish to inquire.

The email address is questions@atg.in.gov. and the phone number is (317) 234-6663.
