Indiana Right to Life and Lake County Right to Life obtained documentation from the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) that informs Dr. Ulrich Klopfer that he cannot perform abortions because he failed to submit admitting privilege documentation as required by the new law.
In a letter dated June 27 from Randall Snyder, PT, MBA of the ISDH to Klopfer of Gary's Friendship Family Planning facility, Klopfer is told, "This letter is to inform the above referenced clinic that it has not submitted admitting privilege documentation or agreements with the request for license renewal.
...
The letter also informs Klopfer of punishment if he fails to comply.
...
In addition to the Family Friendship Planning facility in Gary, Ind., Klopfer also runs abortion facilities in Fort Wayne and South Bend, Ind. Klopfer has not been able to perform abortions at his Fort Wayne location since Dec. 31, 2013 when he lost his back-up physician as required by a county ordinance. The ISDH indicates that Klopfer can continue abortions in South Bend, Ind. because he has submitted verified admitting privilege documentation for that location.

"It is likely that Dr. Klopfer did not have legally-required admitting privileges through a back-up physician under the old law that required admitting privileges but never required proof of compliance. We're thankful that no women, that we're aware of, suffered a serious emergency or death while Dr. Klopfer was allegedly not complying with the law. Since Dr. Klopfer resides in Illinois, it is especially important that a physician be available to provide care should an emergency arise after an abortion."
Klopfer is the abortion doctor who has recently made headlines for alleged incompliance with reporting abortions on 13-year-old girls as required by law. Klopfer has a hearing on Aug. 1 in St. Joseph County after he was charged with failing to report an abortion performed in South Bend, Ind. on a 13-year-old girl. According to National Right to Life news, Klopfer could face a fine of $1,000 and 180 days in jail if he is convicted of the Class B misdemeanor. He also faces a similar charge for late reporting of an abortion on a 13-year-old girl performed in Gary, Ind. He is scheduled to go to trial in Lake County on Jan. 26, 2015.

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.

SOUTH BEND, IND. - Yesterday, representatives from Indiana Right to Life, St. Joseph County Right to Life and the South Bend pro-life community hosted a press conference in South Bend to announce more than 1,200 consumer complaints against South Bend Women's Pavillion doctor, Dr. Ulrich Klopfer. The complaints are the result of 1,494 errors and omissions made by Klopfer between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2013 on terminated pregnancy reports that doctors are required by Indiana law to file for every abortion they perform. These complaints more than double the number of complaints currently pending against Klopfer.
In October, 17 women filed nearly 500 complaints against Klopfer for errors and omissions on reports regarding abortions in Fort Wayne and on Dec. 3, 20 women filed more than 600 complaints against Klopfer for errors and omissions on reports regarding abortions in Gary.
...
"Today's complaints show that Dr. Klopfer is demonstrating sloppy work at all three of his abortion facilities," said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life.
...
Dr. Klopfer's pattern of sloppy reports show he doesn't fully value the health and safety of his patients."
...
"This isn't the first time the community has learned that Dr. Klopfer has failed to meet state-required reporting requirements. Dr. Klopfer has also improperly reported abortions on 13-year-olds as required by law to protect young girls from child abuse.
...
FORT WAYNE, IND. - Indiana Right to Life and Allen County Right to Life learned today that the Fort Wayne abortionist, Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, is losing his relationship with his legally-required Physician Designee, or "back-up" doctor. Dr. Geoffrey Cly, OB/GYN, notified Klopfer in a letter dated Dec. 12 that he is terminating his relationship as Physician Designee effective December 31, 2013 because of Klopfer's handling of 13-year-old abortions.
The Allen County Patient Safety Ordinance (Title 10, Article 10) requires doctors practicing but not residing in the county to have a relationship with a local doctor who can legally practice in Allen County. Additionally, state law requires abortion doctors to have local admitting privileges or have entered into an agreement with a physician who has admitting privileges at a hospital in the county or contiguous county concerning the management of possible complications of the services provided. Cly, a pro-life physician who is Board Certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology, became Klopfer's Physician Designee in September 2010 because of his desire to protect the health and safety of any woman who may have a complication due to an abortion. As Klopfer's Physician Designee, Cly would have cared for any of Klopfer's patients with medical complications or situations arising after an abortion if Klopfer was not available. This is especially important because Klopfer resides in Crete, Ill., and leaves Fort Wayne immediately after he performs abortions.
In a letter dated Dec. 12, Cly wrote to Klopfer:
...
Upon learning of Cly's termination as Physician Designee for Klopfer, Cathie Humbarger, Executive Director of Allen County Right to Life stated, "Through Dr. Cly's termination of his back-up relationship with the doctor who provides abortions locally, we hope Dr. Klopfer will understand the severity of his mishandling of 13-year-old abortions.
...
Upon learning of Cly's termination as Physician Designee for Klopfer, Cathie Humbarger, Executive Director of Allen County Right to Life stated, "Through Dr. Cly's termination of his back-up relationship with the doctor who provides abortions locally, we hope Dr. Klopfer will understand the severity of his mishandling of 13-year-old abortions.
...
No 13-year-old should lose their innocence through child abuse and Dr. Klopfer's actions, especially to coach parents to take their children to other states for abortions, demonstrate that he was willing to overlook child abuse. Dr. Cly's willingness to be Dr. Klopfer's back-up doctor originally shows just how much Dr. Cly values the health and safety of local women. He wanted to make sure women received the best medical care possible if they dealt with abortion complications. We wholeheartedly support Dr. Cly's decision to terminate his back-up relationship with Dr. Klopfer in light of his recent egregious actions."
"Dr. Cly's termination of his Physician Designee status with Dr. Klopfer will mean the abortionist must find a new back-up doctor by the time he performs his first abortion in January, or he will be out of compliance with state and county laws," said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life.
...
"We are not aware whom Dr. Klopfer's back-up doctors are in Gary and South Bend, the two other cities where he performs abortions. However, we urge these local doctors to reconsider their relationship with Dr. Klopfer because of his mishandling of abortions on girls under 14 and the advice he stated he gives to parents to take underage girls across state lines to avoid child sexual abuse reporting laws."
