Indiana’s two Republican U.S. senators, Todd Young and Mike Braun, have written a letter to Attorney General William Barr calling for his assistance in Illinois and Indiana’s investigation into late Indiana abortion doctor, Ulrich “George” Klopfer. The letter follows the recent horrific discovery of more than 2,200 fetal remains in his Illinois home. Dr. Klopfer performed abortions in South Bend, Fort Wayne, and Gary for decades.

“Dr. Klopfer’s blatant disregard of human life raises many questions about how the remains were transported across state lines, where and when the abortions occurred, the gestational age of each unborn child at the time of the abortion, and the current condition of the remains,” the senators stated in the letter. “It is also important to know if other individuals had knowledge of this activity or participated in the preservation and transfer of these remains, as well as if violations of state or federal laws occurred.”

“In light of this horrific discovery, we urge you to do everything in your power to support the Indiana and Illinois attorneys general in their investigations, and to keep us informed of any developments.”
