When thousands of bodies of aborted babies were discovered in former abortionist Ulrich Klopfer’s home, it sent shockwaves across the country. Klopfer, who died early this month, had quite a checkered history; he had a failure to report abuse, did not report underage abortions, and kept his facility in unsafe conditions. He ultimately lost his medical license in 2015, but before that, he committed abortions in South Bend, Indiana — where presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg is mayor. Many people were eager to hear Buttigieg’s response, but he initially remained quiet, until now.
Buttigieg finally broke his silence about the issue, but his flippant response left much to be desired for many, especially considering that he made sure to include some pro-abortion talking points.
“Like everyone, I find that news out of Illinois extremely disturbing, and I think it’s important that that be fully investigated,” he said. “I also hope it doesn’t get caught up in politics at a time when women need access to health care. There’s no question that what happened is disturbing. It’s unacceptable. And it needs to be looked into fully.”
Buttigieg’s background lends a hint as to why he seems so undisturbed by this news; he has championed Whole Woman’s Health, an abortion facility which, in South Bend, remains unlicensed after the health department refused their application, and nationwide, has a history of health and safety violations. For the Whole Woman’s Health facility in Buttigieg’s town of South Bend, the administrator on the original application was none other than Liam Morley, who originally worked for Klopfer.
Now, on the heels of this grisly news in Buttigieg’s backyard, he has announced that he will be going on a cross-country bus tour with pro-abortion group Supermajority — founded by none other than Cecile Richards, former Planned Parenthood president and CEO.
As Live Action News author Carole Novielli pointed out on Twitter, this is the height of hypocrisy. “When 2K aborted babies [were] found in [the] home of Indiana abortionist @PeteButtigieg didn’t want it ‘caught up in politics,'” she wrote. “Yet he appears [with] Planned Parenthood’s former prez to ‘encode abortion’ and refers to HHS Rule as ‘gag order?’ Who is [the] one being political?”
This kind of reaction to the Klopfer horror, as well as his decision to go on a cross-country tour with a noted abortion extremist, is not entirely surprising. Buttigieg is a dedicated abortion supporter, opposing any restrictions on abortion — even late-term abortion. While this makes him right at home among his fellow Democratic presidential candidates, it makes him incredibly out of touch with the American people. Just 12 percent of Americans support unrestricted abortion on demand, at any time, for any reason, with taxpayer funding. Yet the pro-abortion extremism holds firm.
Given this, it’s no wonder that Buttigieg turned a horrific discovery from an abortionist into a reminder to keep supporting abortion.
