Indiana abortion doc to take hiatus after complaints surface and loses back up doctor

According to the News Sentinel, For the first time in decades, it appears Fort Wayne will soon be without a legal abortion provider – at least for a while.

Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, the Illinois doctor who has performed abortions in Fort Wayne for years but earlier this month lost his “backup” physician as required by local law, will no longer perform surgeries in his clinic at 2210 Inwood Drive, according to Cathie Humbarger, executive director of Allen County Right to Life.

Several calls placed by Right to Life supporters indicate Klopfer’s clinic in South Bend will accept Fort Wayne patients beginning next week, although pre-abortion counseling could continue to be offered locally, Humbarger said.

Klopfer confirmed he is taking a “hiatus” from performing abortions in Fort Wayne because of a lack of a required backup, but said he hopes to resume should he find a replacement for Dr. Geoffrey Cly, whose resignation is effective Jan. 1.

Humbarger said it would be premature to celebrate given Klopfer’s hoped-for return, but said the clinic’s demise would be “tremendous news for desperate mothers and babies vulnerable to abortion. Our goal has been to make Allen County abortion-free.”

The Allen County Patient Safety Ordinance 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 in case of post-operative complications.

Cly, who is pro-life, said he agreed to serve as Klopfer’s backup in 2010 in order to protect the health of women receiving abortions from Klopfer, since he practices in Fort Wayne only one day each week. But in a Dec. 12 letter to Klopfer, Cly said he was terminating the arrangement because of Klopfer’s failure to file timely reports about abortions on girls under 14 as required by state law.

“Furthermore, you told an online news publication, RH Reality Check, that you now advise girls under 14 and their parents or guardians that they can go to Illinois or Ohio to avoid (Indiana’s) under-14 reporting requirement for child sexual abuse,” Cly wrote. “Your failure to report 13-year-olds’ abortions properly and your subsequent admission to advising parents to avoid state laws is alarming. According to Indiana law, sex with a girl under 14 – regardless of the perpetrator’s age – is child abuse. Your advice to cross state lines for abortions may help child abuse to continue and a perpetrator or abuser to walk free.”

“Abortions are legal, but I still want to keep women safe,” said Cly, who declined to comment on Klopfer’s future in Allen County.

In October, Humbarger said 487 consumer complaint forms were being sent to the Indiana attorney general and the Allen County prosecutor, each stating what Humbarger said are errors or omissions on the Terminated Pregnancy Reports that must be filed with the State Department of Health after each procedure is performed. Similar complaints have been filed by right-to-life supporters regarding Klopfer’s work at clinics in South Bend and Gary, and the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency has asked him to appear next month to explain his actions.

Klopfer said it is unfortunate that right-to-life supporters are more concerned about his activities than about sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, and said their attempts to curtail his Fort Wayne operation will only hurt women.

“They’ll have to drive another 100 or 200 miles. That will add to their cost and hardship,” he said.

More than 600 Complaints Filed Against Abortion Doctor

Posted in Abortionist with tags , , , on December 4, 2013 by saynsumthn

Representatives from Indiana Right to Life and Lake County Right to Life announced that 626 consumer complaints were filed against Gary’s Friendship Family Planning abortion doctor, Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, of Crete, Ill. Each complaint is the result of a terminated pregnancy report containing errors or omissions. Indiana law requires abortion doctors to submit terminated pregnancy reports to the Indiana State Department of Health for every abortion performed. Complaints were sent today to the Indiana Attorney General and delivered to the Lake County Prosecutor. Today’s complaints come less than two months after 17 women filed nearly 500 complaints against Klopfer for improper terminated pregnancy reports for abortions done in Allen County, Ind.

Lake County Right to Life and Indiana Right to Life requested copies of the publicly-available terminated pregnancy reports from the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) and reviewed each report supplied by ISDH for abortions done between July 2011 and June 2013. Every terminated pregnancy report had errors or omissions, ranging between one and 15 mistakes per report. In total, pro-life officials found 3,678 errors and omissions on the 626 reports.

Incorrect information on the reports ranged from stating that the post-fertilization age of the fetus was 88 weeks to the estimated number of weeks of gestation not correlating with the date of last menses and date of termination. Omitted information ranged from excluding whether or not a post-abortion examination was done to leaving out the date(s) of previous terminations.

Twenty Northwest Indiana women submitted the complaints. In their complaint forms, they requested the immediate suspension of Klopfer’s medical license, pending a full investigation. Lake County Right to Life officials are also requesting a meeting of the Lake County Prosecutor as the local prosecutor has the authority to bring criminal charges against Klopfer. Indiana law states that failure to complete and submit the report on time carries a Class B misdemeanor charge.

“Mistakes on every report for every abortion performed simply demonstrate sloppy work,” said Lynne Scherschel, Board Member for Lake County Right to Life. “Terminated pregnancy reports are an important accountability measure for client health and safety. All the errors and omissions are concerning, but especially alarming are omissions like whether or not an examination was done to be sure the abortion was complete. The state and county must take corrective steps immediately, starting with suspending Dr. Kloper’s medical license until a full investigation is done.”

“These errors and omissions on the reports we reviewed are inexcusable,” stated Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “We urge the Attorney General, the Medical Licensing Board and the Lake County Prosecutor to address these 626 complaints immediately. Businesses across Indiana are held to state laws in their respective fields and we believe the abortion industry should be held accountable as well.”

“This is not the first time Dr. Klopfer’s alleged business filings have caused community alarm,” said Cy Huerter, Lake County Right to Life Vice President. “In May, complaints were filed with the Indiana Attorney General’s office and the Indiana Medical Licensing Board after Dr. Klopfer failed to report an abortion on a 13-year-old within the time specified by state law. The termination of pregnancy report shows that Dr. Klopfer performed an abortion on a 13-year-old on September 28, 2012, but the Indiana Department of Health did not receive the report from Dr. Klopfer until January 23, four months after the abortion instead of within the three days required by law. He has also failed to properly report abortions on girls under age 14 in Fort Wayne and South Bend, Ind.”

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.

The complaints addressed more than 3,000 errors and omissions uncovered on publicly-available terminated pregnancy reports spanning abortions performed July 2011 through June 2013. Indiana law requires abortion doctors to file terminated pregnancy reports with the Indiana State Department of Health for each abortion performed. Indiana law also specifies that failure to complete and submit the report on time carries a Class B misdemeanor charge.

Allen County Right to Life and Indiana Right to Life routinely request and review terminated pregnancy reports from the state after the filing period closes. 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.

Activists Claim Errors

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. “Every termination of pregnancy report in 2012 and 2013 listed the address where Dr. Klopher’s old abortion business was, a site where he hasn’t practiced in seven years. Every report during those years also stated that the baby was age 88 weeks after fertilization. An elephant could develop in 88 weeks. 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 call on the Attorney General, the Indiana Medical Licensing Board and Allen County Prosecutor to pay immediate attention to these 487 complaints,” said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “Any business owner in Indiana will tell you that he or she has to abide by state laws governing their industry and that penalties are issued for violations. We are asking for Dr. Klopfer’s abortion business to be subject to oversight and enforcement measures as well.”

“Bringing these errors and omissions to light brings transparency to an industry often shrouded in secrecy,” stated Dr. Peter Scaer, Board President of Allen County Right to Life. “Our community deserves to know what goes on at Dr. Klopfer’s facility. 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. It’s concerning to think ‘what’s next?’ if he’s allowed to continue practicing at his abortion business.”

The complaints are being filed today by 17 concerned individuals in the Fort Wayne area.

13 TOP Report

Life Dynamics Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas, points out that although we do not know the circumstances of this child’s pregnancy, mandatory reporting statutes which require healthcare workers to report reasonable suspicions of child sexual abuse to the authorities are being ignored inside American abortion, Planned Parenthood and family planning centers.

Life Dynamics has documented this in an undercover investigation where they called over 800 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across the nation.

According to Mark Crutcher, founder of Life Dynamics, “The results of this survey were appalling. Even though many of these clinics openly acknowledged to our caller that this situation was illegal and they were required to report it to the state, the overwhelming majority readily agreed to conceal this illegal activity.”

Crutcher continues, “When we began to investigate we found it was even worse than we thought it was. Initially we thought perhaps the abortion clinics were only reporting half of the incidents, but instead we found that they were reporting hardly any of them.”

To combat this problem, Life Dynamics recently unveiled a national outreach by contacting over 53,000 personal injury attorneys to educate them about the pedophile protection racket being covered up inside these clinics.

According to Crutcher, “this is the largest criminal conspiracy in American history. ”
