FORT WAYNE, IND. - Today, representatives from Indiana Right to Life and Allen County Right to Life held a press conference to announce 487 complaints being filed against the Fort Wayne abortion doctor, Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, of Crete, Ill. Each complaint is the result of a termination of pregnancy report containing errors or omissions by Klopfer. Complaints are being filed with the Indiana Attorney General's office.
...
As each organization reviewed the documents, they found multiple errors and omissions on the reports submitted by Klopfer. Errors ranged from including the wrong address of the abortion facility to stating that the post-fertilization age of the fetus was 88 weeks. Omissions ranged from no county of pregnancy termination listed to no date of the patient's last normal menses.
Complainants are requesting the immediate suspension of Klopfer's medical license pending a full investigation. Additionally, a meeting is being requested of the Allen County Prosecutor's Office as the local prosecutor carries the authority to bring criminal charges against Klopfer.
"The quantity and type of errors and omissions speaks volumes about Dr. Klopfer's abortion business," stated Cathie Humbarger, Allen County Right to Life Executive Director.
...
Dr. Klopfer's errors and omissions are simply careless. These errors and omissions raise serious concerns over how Dr. Klopfer runs his abortion practice."
...
We are asking for Dr. Klopfer's abortion business to be subject to oversight and enforcement measures as well."
...
Last month Allen County Right to Life's Executive Director alerted the community to Dr. Klopfer's failure to report a 13-year-old abortion on time as required by law. This month we're reporting on 487 complaints against Dr. Klopfer.
...
The report shows that a 13-year-old had an abortion performed by Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, of the Fort Wayne Women's Health Organization, on February 7.
...
Representatives from Allen County Right to Life and Indiana Right to Life released the following statement regarding the complaints filed against Klopfer.
"It's heartbreaking to learn that a 13-year-old became pregnant and now must live with the pain of an abortion for the rest of her life, but it's doubly-heartbreaking that Dr. Klopfer's failure to report the abortion may have allowed the girl's molester to walk free," said Cathie Humbarger, Executive Director of Allen County Right to Life.
...
I call on the Attorney General to immediately investigate Dr. Klopfer's failure to report this abortion. Sadly, this is not the first time I have filed a complaint over Klopfer's failure to report an abortion on a 13-year-old within the time frame required by law yet he still practices today. His failure to report is appalling."
"Dr. Klopfer's failure to report this abortion on a 13-year-old shows a blatant disregard for Indiana law, not to mention a lack of concern for the patient's wellbeing and safety," stated Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life.

Since the requirements apply only to doctors who practice in the county, but happen to live outside of the area and not have privileges to admit patients at local hospitals, the measure specifically targets the plaintiff in the case Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, Ft. Wayne's only provider of surgical abortions.
...
"Our client Dr. Klopfer has safely provided abortion in the county for many years. There's no justification for suddenly imposing additional requirements on him, especially when they harm his patients and practice." The ACLU Indiana and Center for Reproductive Rights filed a challenge to the ordinance on behalf of Dr. Klopfer in May. The ordinance allows a health official to review patient medical records, without removing any identifying information, whenever a complaint that anyone violated the ordinance is lodged. The official is not required to keep the names of the patients confidential. That provision puts the patients' confidentiality at risk and because women who seek abortion are often subjected to harassment by anti-choice extremists, it may very well prevent them from seeking services in the first place. The court "call[ed] into question the need for county health officials to leaf through medical records," and found "the security measures in the ordinance assuring the confidentiality of patient identifying information...vague at best." Dr. Klopfer, owner of Fort Wayne Women's Health, the only provider of surgical abortions in Allen County and within 100 miles, the ordinance would place a significant burden on his practice and prevent him from providing confidential medical care. "Today's ruling exposes this ordinance for the assault on patient privacy that it is.

Klopfer faces an administrative licensing complaint by Indiana Attorney General's office of 1,833 alleged abortion violations. Klopfer was the longtime abortion doctor in Gary, South Bend and Fort Wayne, Ind., though he currently only does abortions in South Bend.
"We're pleased justice will run its course and that the Indiana Medical Licensing Board didn't simply let Dr. Klopfer off the hook," said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life.
...
"Dr. Klopfer's 1,833 alleged violations are serious matters that deserve serious scrutiny. Hoosiers expect those holding medical licenses to be held to a high standard and we're thankful the Medical Licensing Board is doing that by moving this case forward."
Klopfer's 1,833 alleged violations stem from recording keeping and advice and consent law errors he made while doing abortions in Gary, South Bend and Fort Wayne. According to the alleged violations in the Attorney General's complaint, Klopfer submitted 1,818 termination of pregnancy reports with missing or incorrect information. He failed to submit two termination of pregnancy reports on time for 13-year-old girls. Six times, he failed to ensure informed and voluntary consent was obtained through appropriate counselors. Finally, he failed to obtain informed and voluntary consent for seven patients at least 18-hours prior to the abortion procedure.

...
"We anticipate that the Indiana Medical Licensing Board will allow justice to run its course by dismissing Dr. Klopfer's request for summary judgment. These 1,833 alleged violations are serious issues, especially when one considers the young age of some of his patients involved. Hoosiers expect their state government to make sure laws are being followed. Therefore, we urge the Medical Licensing Board to allow this case to move forward so the violations can be fully considered and so Dr. Klopfer will have to answer for his alleged actions."
Members of Indiana Right to Life will be in attendance at Thursday's hearing, scheduled to begin at [8:30 a.m.] The hearing will take place at Indiana Government Center South, Professional Licensing Agency, Room W064, 402 West Washington Street, Indianapolis, Ind. Members of the media interested in coordinating an interview with staff from Indiana Right to Life should contact media@protectinglife.com.

GARY, IND. - Indiana Right to Life has learned that longtime Gary abortion doctor, Ulrich Klopfer, has surrendered his Gary, Ind. abortion license. Klopfer's surrender follows the release of an alarming report by the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) showing deplorable conditions and safety hazards at his Gary facility. The surrender also comes just prior to Klopfer's scheduled hearing on June 25 before the Indiana Medical Licensing Board, where the Board could choose to remove his medical license.
"Dr. Klopfer has been operating with shoddy business practices for years," shared Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life.
...
The recent ISDH survey revealed water leaks, improper staffing, fire hazards, smells of sewage and more at Dr. Klopfer's Gary location. He may have surrendered his license so that he doesn't have to comply with the law in order to avoid further penalties.
"We applaud the Pence administration and ISDH staff for taking its responsibility seriously to inspect licensed abortion facilities and hold them accountable. With Dr. Klopfer's license surrender, there is one less abortion facility in Indiana. We now turn our attention to Dr. Klopfer's upcoming Medical Licensing Board hearing on June 25. The Board will review 1,833 alleged abortion violations. We believe Dr. Klopfer's carelessness does a disservice to the medical community and his patients. We urge the Board to remove Dr. Klopfer's medical license."
