“Following news that Ulrich Klopfer, the abortionist Mayor Pete helped keep in business, secretly stored thousands of aborted babies in his home, Students for Life calls for a thorough investigation of the connection between them. This kind of tragedy is what happens when the abortion industry is allowed to operate lawlessly,” said Kristan Hawkins.
FREDERICKSBURG, VA and SOUTH BEND, IN (9-23-19)- Students for Life of America announced today that they have filed a public records (FOIA) request with the city of South Bend for all of Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s e-mail correspondence relating to deceased and disgraced abortionist Ulrich Klopfer, as well as Buttigieg’s correspondence with and about the Women’s Pavilion Clinic. Students for Life is also seeking information on Buttigieg’s decision to veto a rezoning request by the pro-life pregnancy resource center, Women’s Care Clinic.
Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America said in a statement, “Mayor Pete was a supporter of Ulrich Klopfer‘ s business so the mayor’s ties to the abortion vendor operating without a license in his home town must be fully explored. Mayor Pete’s history of using the power of the government to stop pro-lifers should give pause to all pro-lifers and supporters of the First Amendment.”
She added, “Klopfer’s disgusting and degrading actions, keeping over 2,200 aborted babies in his home, has triggered a bipartisan investigation by the Attorneys General of Indiana and Illinois and a federal investigation request by the White House. American citizens of all political beliefs deserve to know more about Mayor Pete’s role in this atrocity. Klopfer’s own house of horrors, like convicted murderer Kermit Gosnell, must be thoroughly investigated. And laws requiring humane disposal of human remains like those championed by Vice President Mike Pence should be passed in every state.”
