Hundreds of Complaints Filed on Local Doctor

Right to Life is submitting hundreds of complaints to the Attorney General's office.
"If the abortion provider cant fill out a simple one page report properly, it raises concern about what the practice looks like behind closed doors," said Executive Director of Allen County Right to Life, Cathie Humbarger.

Last month WFFT aired a story about a local doctor who performed an abortion on a 13-year-old who allegedly broke the law by failing to report the surgery in three days. Now that same doctor is under fire again by members of the community and officials from Allen County Right to Life.

WFFT has learned that hundreds of consumer complaints have been filed against local abortion doctor Ulrich Klopfer for misreporting abortions by making careless mistakes on paperwork.


"If the abortion provider cant fill out a simple one page report properly, it raises concern about what the practice looks like behind closed doors," said Executive Director of Allen County Right to Life, Cathie Humbarger.

Exactly 487 complaints are being sent to the Attorney Generals office for inaccurate abortion reports. All the reports were filed by Dr. Ulrich Klopfer from July 2011 to June 2013.

"The gestational age for every baby he aborted is listed at 88 weeks," said Humbarger.

88 weeks is more than double the length of a full term pregnancy. Humbarger says in Allen County, an abortion can only be performed under 12 weeks. 

The President and CEO Mike Fitcher, of Indiana Right to Life says they've tried getting the attention of the state but nothing has been done.

"We've had discussions with state officials on this in the past, nothing has resultes from that so now this is stepping it up to hte formal complaint process laid out by the state in order to raise our concerns on it," said Fitcher.

A search on the Indiana licensing database shows Klopfer as an active physician in the state for 20 years. It shows his license will expire at the end of this month.

"We're asking the attorney general to request to the Indiana Licensing Board an immediate suspension of the doctors license pending a full investigation," said Humbarger.

Humbarger says out of the 487 reports filed by the doctor, Right to Life found more than 3,000 errors. The local and state prosecuting offices were not available for comment due to the holiday. Calls from Klopfer or his office also weren't returned. We'll have more on this case when information becomes available.
