88-week abortions? 487 complaints filed against abortionist who didn’t report suspected rape on time
FORT WAYNE, IN, October 14, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – An abortionist who did not report a 13-year-old girl's abortion in accordance with state law is facing almost 500 new complaints of abortion reporting errors.
Indiana Right to Life and Allen County Right to Life filed 487 complaints with Indiana's state attorney general against Dr. Ulrich George Klopfer of Crete, Illinois.
Just weeks ago, the groups revealed that Klopfer performed a suction curettage abortion on a 13-year-old black girl at Fort Wayne Women's Health Organization on February 7. The young girl had not yet reached the eighth grade.
All pregnancies of children under the age of 14 are investigated as potential sexual abuse – if reported.
Under Indiana law, Klopfer is required to notify the state of such cases within three days, but he did not report the abortion until July 25. (Read his report here.)
Last year, Klopfer failed to report another abortion of another 13-year-old girl in Lake County, according to another complaint filed by Allen County Right to Life Executive Director Cathie Humbarger.
The new allegations, filed by 17 separate people, allege that the doctor made “more than 3,000 errors and omissions” on forms filed with the state during a 23-month time frame, from July 2011 to June 2013.
Some of the errors were clerical, such as listing the wrong address for his facility. Some were inexplicable.
“Every report during those years also stated that the baby was age 88 weeks after fertilization,” at a press conference this afternoon. “An elephant could develop in 88 weeks.”
“The quantity and type of errors and omissions speaks volumes about Dr. Klopfer’s abortion business,” she said.

They complaintants are renewing their request for state authorities to suspend Klopfer's medical license until a full investigation is completed.
“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,” said Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “We are asking for Dr. Klopfer’s abortion business to be subject to oversight and enforcement measures, as well.”
Dr. Peter Scaer, the board president of Allen County Right to Life, noted the increasing number of complaints, which may have allowed two teenage girls' molesters to walk. “It’s concerning to think what’s next if he’s allowed to continue practicing at his abortion business,” he said.
Allen County Right to Life is holding its annual Banquet for Life this evening.
