INDIANAPOLIS — A memorial service will be held for thousands of aborted fetal remains discovered following the death of an abortion doctor.

The 2,411 medically preserved remains were found last September in Illinois on property owned by the late Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, who was a longtime doctor at an abortion clinic in South Bend, Indiana.

Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill in December announced the remains could not be identified, citing shoddy record-keeping and the degraded condition of remains.

The graveside service will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday at Southlawn Cemetery and Palmer Funeral Home in South Bend.

Hill will offer remarks on behalf of the State of Indiana. He will also provide the media with updates on the status of the investigation.
