The Bishop of Fort Wayne-South Bend offered Thursday the use of a Catholic cemetery to bury the more than 2,000 remains of aborted children that were discovered in the garage of a recently-deceased former abortionist, as authorities in one state close their investigation into the discovery.
"I join my voice to the many people who have expressed their horror and disgust at the discovery of 2,246 medically preserved remains of unborn babies in the Illinois home of Ulrich Klopfer, who performed thousands of abortions in the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend," Rhoades said Sept. 19.
"I strongly support the investigation being carried out by the attorneys general of Illinois and Indiana. I also offer any assistance, including the use of our Catholic Cemetery in Fort Wayne, for the proper and dignified burial of the remains of these unborn children."
At a press conference Thursday, the Will County Sheriff's Office announced that they will not pursue criminal charges related to the discovery of 2,246 "medically preserved fetal remains" in the Klopfer's garage. The remains were discovered by Klopfer's family members Sept. 12, nine days after his death at age 75.
