Linking Klopfer to a litany of other abortionists means Major Media must soon dismiss his ghoulish behavior as “old news”

Late abortionist Ulrich Klopfer

“There’s something sick in America’s abortion industry.“ — David Mastio, deputy editorial page editor, USA TODAY.

This is the way today’s media works. They assault anything and anyone associated with the Trump administration and then, when it backfires, whine about President Trump “harping” on their shoddy journalism. {See Politico.}

Why do I mention this in the context of the late abortionist Ulrich Klopfer, whose family discovered he had stashed the remains of over two thousand aborted babies in a garage in his home in Crete, Illinois? We are just now getting to hear about some of the preliminary investigations into whether this is part of a larger pattern. First result today said there only “medical records,” not fetal bodies, at two of the abortion clinics he used to run in Indiana.

But that’s just a start. There is the abortion clinic he ran in Illinois until 2013. A man who aborted (at a minimum) “tens of thousands” babies is a rich, rich man. What other properties did he own/rent/lease?

The complaints from the Major Media will begin to roll in the more Klopfer’s highly checkered past is exposed along with the behavior of other abortionists big shot newspapers like to avoid discussing. As David Mastio, deputy editorial page editor of USA TODAY, wrote yesterday

Klopfer isn’t the only abortionist to enjoy keeping trophies of his grisly work close at hand. America’s most infamous baby killer, Kermit Gosnell, also kept fetal body parts in “milk jugs and glass jars” at his clinic in Philadelphia before he was convicted in 2013 on three counts of murder for snipping the spinal cords of babies born alive.

Like Gosnell, Klopfer’s clinics shut down after state inspectors found worrying medical and record-keeping problems.

While Klopfer is not alleged to have been a murderer, his ethical standards appear not to have been very high. In defending himself and his clinics against state allegations, the Illinois physician recounted how he performed an abortion on a 10-year-old girl who was raped by her uncle, never reporting the crime to police and, as a result, helping her parents cover up the atrocity by a family member. State officials cited the sickening defense as part of their reason for stripping him of his medical license. He was previously charged with failing to report performing abortions on two 13-year-olds.

Worse yet, from the perspective of the pro-ideologues at places like the New York Times and the Washington Post, Mastio doesn’t stop with comparing Klopfer to Gosnell. He keeps stirring the pot by writing about just two of the many other examples of abortionists run amuck.

Only last month, Planned Parenthood Arizona was ordered to pay $3 million to a whistleblower who was fired after she reported that a doctor appeared to be making medical mistakes resulting in complications for patients at one of its facilities.

More typical is a 2016 Washington Post story about a local abortion clinic cited for “dirty equipment, expired medication in unlocked cabinets, lax storage of medical records and a failure of staff to sterilize and maintain medical equipment and follow hand-washing protocols.”

“In one case,” The Post reported, “a patient had to be rushed to a local emergency room for prolonged bleeding after sutures were not available at the clinic. … In another, a nurse used a plunger to unstop a toilet and then held a patient’s hand during a surgical procedure without changing scrubs.”

The doctor who owned that clinic already had his medical license temporarily suspended, relinquished or revoked or has faced criminal charges in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Florida and California.

There’s a lot to be curious about. How does a doctor get in trouble in five states and yet remain an abortionist in other states that claim to care about women? Why would Planned Parenthood fire a 15-year employee rather than address concerns for patient safety? How does a doctor amass enough dead bodies in his garage to do a passable imitation of a World War II mass grave? Didn’t his employees notice he was taking home baby parts?

The latter refers to abortionist Steven Chase Brigham, about whom we have written literally dozens of stories, the last time on April 19. With Gosnell serving three consecutive life sentences, Brigham, with decades of legal battles and botched abortions behind him, has reached the bottom of the heap by default.

We wrote, “The latest chapter in what promises to be a never-ending struggle, is that an elderly stroke-impaired physician authorities say Brigham has used as a front man agreed to sell seven New Jersey abortion clinics as part of a deal in which he gave up his medical license.”

Back to my original point. The networks have paid precious little attention to Klopfer. It’s possible coverage may pick up, but I doubt it. They have too much invested in keeping the lid on the atrocities.

But the pro-life press will keep you updated. That’s why we’re here.
