God forbid we allow the truth about infanticide come to light. Politicize all the healthcare except for abortion. Got it.
On Monday, news came out that the family of a dead abortion doctor found over 2,200 well-preserved bodies of babies he murdered when he was alive.
Dr. Ulrich Klopfer resided in Illinois but had a clinic in South Bend, IN, where 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg serves as mayor.
Buttigieg finally received questions on the house of horrors. Something tells me his answers won’t shock you.
From The Washington Examiner:
“Like everyone, I find the news out of Illinois extremely disturbing, and I think it’s important that it be fully investigated,” Buttigieg said on Wednesday. “I also hope it doesn’t get caught up in politics at a time when women need access to healthcare. There’s no question that what happened is disturbing. It’s unacceptable. And it needs to be looked into fully.”

I hate to break it to Buttigieg, but this is not a story just out of Illinois. Klopfer had his clinic in your town of South Bend, Indiana.
Buttigieg hopes it doesn’t become too political. Politicize all the things, including healthcare, but not *this* healthcare.
The left categorizes abortion as healthcare. If they want to politicize my rheumatoid arthritis why not abortion?
Maybe Buttigieg doesn’t want people to know the brutality of abortion. Maybe he doesn’t want people to know how those “doctors” butcher a human being in the womb.
That would cause eyes to open and more people becoming pro-life.
I wrote in my blog on Klopfer that ignorance keeps people as pro-choice and supporters of Planned Parenthood. I know this because I used to be one. I used to hate ANY restrictions on abortion and donated monthly to Planned Parenthood.
Ignorance is the only way to blind yourself to the horrors of abortion.
Or maybe Buttigieg answered this way because of a few moves he made in August. The Washington Free Beacon discovered that “Buttigieg blocked the opening of a pro-life pregnancy center and endorsed the opening of a new Whole Woman’s Health abortion clinic tied to one of Klopfer’s former employees” after Klopfer’s old clinic shut down:
“The South Bend clinic would be the only one for a radius of several counties,” Buttigieg’s national press secretary Chris Meagher told the Chicago Tribune in August. “It is a restriction on a woman’s right if she is low-income, or doesn’t have a vehicle, and she has to visit multiple times, but the clinic is dozens of miles away.”
The initial licensing application for Whole Woman’s Health listed former Klopfer employee Liam Morley as the clinic’s administrator. Buttigieg gave the clinic a boost in 2018 when he vetoed a proposal to open a pro-life pregnancy center near the Whole Woman’s Health site. The Buttigieg campaign did not return request for comment about Klopfer and whether the latest revelation affected his support for Whole Woman’s Health.
Klopfer operated the Women’s Pavilion clinic from 1978 until its 2016 closure. Pro-life groups questioned what role city regulators played in overseeing the clinic. Terry Schilling, executive director at the American Principles Project, said Buttigieg, who was elected in 2011, owes voters an explanation about how Klopfer could continue to operate “under Mayor Pete’s watch.” He accused the Democratic 2020 candidate of turning a blind eye to abortion, pointing to Buttigieg’s claims that the Bible justifies the practice.
I described Klopfer’s clinic and his legal troubles in my Monday blog. His tenure had numerous problems due to several allegations. The Indiana Attorney General’s office alleged that Klopfer never had the staff to provide sedation for patients. The office also accused Klopfer “of errors on state-mandated terminated pregnancy reports, late submissions on several reports of abortions provided to girls 13 or younger, and having unqualified staff members providing pre-abortion counseling to patients.”
For years the state health department discovered various health code violations:
- Staff members taking home soiled lines to wash
- Delayed disposal of dead babies
- Nobody maintained emergency response equipment
Authorities charged Klopfer “in St. Joseph County with a misdemeanor charge of failure to timely file a public report” in June 2014. He also faced accusations “of waiting months to report an abortion he provided to a 13-year-old girl in South Bend.”
Did anything happen to Klopfer? Nope! Authorities dropped the charge after he “completed a pre-trial diversion program.”
The Indiana Medical Licensing Board finally suspended Klopfer’s license in August 2016 “for failing to exercise reasonable care and violating several documentation requirements.” The clinic shut down a few months after Klopfer left.
Obviously we can tell why the state’s health department did not allow Whole Women’s Health to receive a license. But none of that mattered to Buttigieg because the clinic exists and operates “under a federal injunction.”
