A memorial service is scheduled for Sunday to honor the remains of thousands of aborted babies that were discovered in the home of an abortionist.
The service, scheduled for 3 p.m. local time, will be held at Southlawn Cemetery in South Bend, Indiana.
Jackie Appleman, executive director of St. Joseph County Right to Life, says pro-lifers took action after more than 2,000 fetal remains were discovered in the garage of Dr. Ulrich Klopfer after his death last fall.
“As his family was going through his stuff, they found boxes and boxes of these fetal remains in his garage,” Appleman recalls. “And they found some in the trunk of some of his cars as well. So it was very horrific finding those and hearing that news."
Sunday’s memorial services comes after a burial service took place February 12.
"We're really grateful to Attorney General [Curtis] Hill for living up to his promise that these remains will be given the proper and dignified burial that they deserve," says Appleman.
Hill said in January he planned to provide for a “dignified burial” of the remains at a public cemetery.
Right to Life Michigan, Right to Life Northeast Indiana, and Lake County Right to Life are co-hosting Sunday's service.
"These are human lives and they deserve the same dignity and respect as all human lives," says Appleman. "They deserved to have life, not to be poisoned and dismembered and killed via violence of abortion."
