Klopfer committed abortions for years at his three Indiana abortion clinics until he lost his license to practice medicine in the state -- in part for doing abortions on minors without reporting to the state, as required by law. Authorities later found the bodies of about 2,400 aborted children he had preserved and kept.

Lucy Papaik, chair of Noble County Right to Life, has organized a memorial service that will take place noon tomorrow at Immaculate Conception Church in Knedallville, Indiana, where various pro-life groups will be represented.

"We've had over 50 churches that we've contacted to let them know of our memorial service," she tells OneNewsNow. "I'm kind of excited, and I'm thankful. We're very blessed to be able to speak out on behalf of those little children who don't have a voice."

In addition to the numerous church leaders who will be speaking, women who have had abortions will also be at the microphone.

"We'll have one particular testimony; she's a very beautiful woman, a very brave woman to stand up and speak," Papaik shares. "There are so many more stories out there, [and] I'm thankful that God has given those women courage and grace to start to speak out that this is really a baby that is in their womb."

The services focus will be remembering the babies who lost their lives to abortion and to call for the public to join in the battle against abortion with prayer, love, openness, compassion, and healing, as millions of women have also been victimized by abortion.

Yet to be announced is a plan for burial of the babies.
