As 2,411 aborted babies are laid to rest, pro-life groups black out social media in their memory

Today, February 12th, marks the day that 2,411 aborted children were given a proper burial after their medically preserved remains were found in the garage and vehicle of deceased Indiana abortionist Ulrich Klopfer last year. The memorial took place at Southlawn Cemetery in South Bend, Indiana, and included remarks from the state’s attorney general, Curtis Hill.

The children’s remains were found to be two decades old, but were unable to be individually identified. No reason has been given as to why Klopfer stored the preserved and packaged remains of more than 2,200 aborted children in the garage of his home in Will County, Illinois, (which were found by his family after his death) or the remainder in the trunk of a 1990s Mercedes-Benz owned by Klopfer (found later by police), kept in a gated lot in Dolton, Illinois.

Many women came forward after the remains were discovered, seeking to learn whether any of the bodies belonged to their aborted children.

Klopfer’s license was revoked in 2015 because of numerous health and safety violations, including a failure to report underage abortions as required by Indiana law and a failure to report abuse.

Below is a video of the memorial service from the Susan B. Anthony List:

Several pro-life groups — including Live Action, March for Life, Susan B. Anthony List, Created Equal, WeDignify, the Family Research Council, and Human Life Action — are remembering these children in a very public way on social media, using the graphics below:


Live Action president Lila Rose encouraged other pro-lifers on social media to remember these 2,411 human beings by changing their profile pictures and/or cover photos.

Remembering these children killed by Klopfer is important, because most aborted children never receive a memorial acknowledging their humanity. Instead, they are treated as medical waste and are hauled away by disposal companies. Today, and every day, we grieve the tremendous loss of life caused by legal abortion in America.
