SOUTH BEND, IND. - On June 26, the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) filed a complaint with an administrative law judge to revoke the abortion facility license for Women's Pavilion in South Bend, Ind., operated by Dr. Ulrich Klopfer.
Klopfer's facility is charged with violating Indiana Code 16-21. This revocation complaint follows a January 28 revocation complaint by the state against Klopfer's facility. According to the complaint, the ISDH surveyed the abortion facility on Oct. 29, 2014 and found 27 deficiencies. On Dec. 9, 2014, the ISDH sent a notice of noncompliance to the facility and requested a formal plan of correction for each deficiency. With no response from Klopfer, the ISDH issued a second notice on January 6. When the ISDH had not received a plan of correction by January 28, it filed a complaint to revoke the facility's operating license (currently pending). On June 3, the ISDH conducted a licensure complaint investigation of the facility, revealing multiple additional deficiencies. The main deficiency revealed on June 3 was that Klopfer was not abiding by Indiana's 18-hour notification law that requires a woman to give her voluntary and informed consent, view the fetal ultrasound and hear the fetal heartbeat, at least 18 hours before an abortion. Included in the complaint: "The deficiencies...show that Women's Pavilion is not in compliance with the laws governing the conduct of abortion clinics in this state, and that such noncompliance is willful, intentional, and detrimental to the welfare of clinic patients." In a statement, St. Joseph County Right to Life said, "Our organization has been monitoring Dr. Klopfer's Women's Pavilion for decades and has filed numerous complaints to both local and state officials over the years. This complaint for revocation by the state validates our concerns. The inordinate number of code violations for this facility is incredible, as has been the pattern year in and year out. After allowing his license to lapse in his resident state of Illinois in 1990, for more than 25 years Dr. Klopfer has gotten away with maintaining substandard clinic conditions and not adhering to a normative standard of medical care that is customary in St. Joseph County. This translates to a clear danger for women who are seeking abortions in South Bend. "In addition to the main deficiency cited in this most recent complaint, failure to abide by the 18-hour notification law, Dr. Klopfer has had numerous alleged failures in this and previous complaints. Klopfer was the longtime abortion doctor in Gary, South Bend and Fort Wayne, Ind., though he currently only does abortions in South Bend. He surrendered his Gary abortion facility license earlier this month and admitting privilege laws prevent him from doing abortions in Fort Wayne. In Dec. 2013, Klopfer's back-up doctor severed the relationship after learning of Klopfer's alleged criminal activity in untimely reporting of underage girls. An administrative law judge will now review the case and make a final decision. Click here to view the June 26 complaint. Click here to learn more about Klopfer's alleged violations from St. Joseph County Right to Life. 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.

Dr. Ulrich Klopfer Dr. Ulrich Klopfer Klopfer faces an administrative licensing complaint by Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller'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. 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.

Finally, he failed to obtain informed and voluntary consent for seven patients at least 18-hours prior to the abortion procedure. "Dr. Klopfer has displayed poor practices for years, putting his patients at risk," said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. "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.

Dr. Ulrich Klopfer Dr. Ulrich Klopfer 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. 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."

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.

The complaints against Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, who works for the Fort Wayne Womens Health Organization, were filed with the Indiana Attorney Generals Office and Indiana Medical Licensing Board, said Cathie Humbarger, executive director of the Allen County Right to Life.
Klopfer could not be reached for comment Monday. The organization is calling for the attorney general and Indiana Medical Licensing Board to suspend Klopfers medical license and for Allen County prosecutors to file charges against Klopfer, Humbarger said. The complaints accused Klopfer of performing an abortion on the girl in February and failing to report it to the Indiana Department of Health within three days, per state law. Klopfer reported the procedure to the health department in July, according to paperwork from the state agency. While paperwork shows that Klopfer might not have immediately reported the abortion to the department of health, its unclear whether he reported it to another agency. Klopfer also works at clinics in Lake and St. Joseph counties, she said.
