Rep. Banks Backs Federal Investigation Into Dr. Klopfer Case
Fort Wayne – Congressman Jim Banks (IN-03) announced today he supports a full federal investigation into the discovery of more than 2,200 fetal remains found in the late Dr. Klopfer’s home in Illinois. Seeing as Klopfer practiced in Indiana, these remains would have crossed state lines. As such, a federal investigation is appropriate.
Rep. Banks said, "We need to determine how Dr. Klopfer was able to get away with this for so long, and how we only know about it now that Dr. Klopfer is deceased. We also need to know how many people working at the Women's Pavilion were aware of Dr. Klopfer's crimes. I also hope we learn if any of those same staff now work at the Whole Women's Health clinic in South Bend, and how closely those two organizations are tied."
