South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg weighed in Wednesday on the fetal remains found on a former abortion doctor’s property.
The 2020 presidential candidate spoke to reporters about the 2,246 medically preserved fetal remains family members found on former Dr. Ulrich Klopfer’s property in Illinois after he died on Sept. 3.
“I find that news out of Illinois extremely disturbing,” Buttigieg said, according to a video from WSBT reporter Max Lewis.
Klopfer’s ran clinics in Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend, Indiana.
“And I think it’s super important that it be, uh, fully investigated,” the mayor said. “I also hope it doesn’t get caught up in politics at a time when women need access to health care.”
