SOUTH BEND, Indiana, February 25, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – Infamous abortionist Ulrich Klopfer and his “Women's Pavilion” abortion business in South Bend are being accused of harassing official Indiana State Department of Health (DOH) investigators.

Attorney Shawn Sullivan of South Bend's The Life Center (TLC) operates right next to Klopfer's former abortion business. His group released documents of allegations that employees of Klopfer's abortion business harassed inspectors from the state DOH, “thereby inhibiting investigations.”

DOH nurses were investigating complaints about the abortion mill in June 2015 and spoke out in DOH proceedings in October, saying they were harassed, some sexually harassed, by employees of Women's Pavilion. The DOH inspectors ultimately found ten substantiated charges out of ten complaints.

TLC's accusations against Klopfer's facility also noted that the abortion mill's lawyer attempted to suppress court introduction of testimony pertaining to harassment. The abortion business's attorney admitted in a side reference that the DOH “intended to introduce testimony pertaining to certain harassment and/or sexual harassment allegations,” but later, the DOH decided not to introduce testimony about the alleged harassment.

Church Militant reports that the Indiana DOH dropped the new accusations of harassment, “apparently at the request of the clinic's attorneys.”

The next day, DOH attorney Adrienne Brune complained, “Past mistreatment of DOH surveyors by Women's Clinic personnel is relevant to the Clinic's licensure and the State's revocation/denial decision. Past mistreatment of surveyors is also relevant to the Clinic's disregard for rules that bar an entity from interfering with surveyor activities.”

Attorney Sullivan wrote in a press release, “Why isn't the Women's Pavilion being prosecuted for sexual harassment, harassment or interference with the government's investigation? … It would appear that the Women's Pavilion plans to re-open soon, and that they cut a deal with the Indiana State Department of Health to do so.”

Sullivan's charge continued: “Their 90-day suspension has expired, and the Women's Pavilion staff has been coming in every day to operate the clinic.”

Sullivan summarizes that “Since 2006, the Women's Pavilion has repeatedly violated clinic laws. Two failure-to-report criminal charges were brought against Dr. Klopfer, the clinic's abortionist, within the past two years. Plus, the Medical License Board is threatening to revoke Dr. Klopfer's license for violating informed consent laws, medical standards, and reporting requirements. And what should be the final nail in the coffin, TLC obtained testimonial and audio evidence proving that Women's Pavilion operates in violation of the criminal laws regarding informed consent.”

Sullivan concluded that the Indiana DOH “cannot be trusted to aggressively prosecute a lawbreaking abortion clinic.”

TLC spokeswoman Jennifer Borek noted that the public supports closing the abortion facility. “We now have over 850 signatures, electronic and handwritten, requesting that the enforcement bodies such as the Indiana State Department of Health, the prosecutor, and the Medical License Board put an end to this charade.”

Klopfer admitted he did not report abortions on girls aged 13 and younger who had been raped, which is a crime with a penalty of fines and up to six months in prison for every violation. The state of Indiana has not charged him.

Klopfer's medical license is currently suspended. A review for its reinstatement is scheduled for March.
