The following is an excerpt from Blaze Media’s daily Capitol Hill Brief email newsletter:
67 House Republicans called on the Justice Department Tuesday to assist in the investigation of thousands of fetal remains found at a deceased Midwest abortionist’s home.
“We write to you regarding the horrific discovery of more than 2,200 preserved human fetal remains on the Illinois property of the recently deceased abortionist Ulrich ‘George’ Klopfer, who practiced for decades in northern Indiana until 2015,” lawmakers wrote in a letter to Attorney General William Barr. “A careful and thorough investigation of this matter is necessary to ensure justice is done and to prevent such tragic situations from occurring in the future.”
The letter, spearheaded by Indiana Reps. Jackie Walorski and Jim Banks, also asks the Justice Department to look into state laws and practice regarding the disposal of human fetal remains in order to “aid Congress in examining potential legislative remedies to ensure human fetal remains are always treated with dignity.”
“This case has countless victims – both unborn babies and mothers,” the letter concludes, “and represents a grotesque violation of human dignity that American society should not and cannot tolerate.” (For more from the author of “Lawmakers Ask for DOJ Help on Fetal Remains Discovery: ‘This Case Has Countless Victims’” please click HERE)
