Longtime Abortion Doctor Gives Up Abortion License as His Troubles Mount

Klopfer headshotGARY, IND. – Indiana Right to Life has learned that longtime Gary abortion doctor, Ulrich Klopfer, has surrendered his Gary, Ind. abortion license. Klopfer’s surrender follows the release of an alarming report by the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) showing deplorable conditions and safety hazards at his Gary facility. The surrender also comes just prior to Klopfer’s scheduled hearing on June 25 before the Indiana Medical Licensing Board, where the Board could choose to remove his medical license.

“Dr. Klopfer has been operating with shoddy business practices for years,” shared Mike Fichter, President and CEO of Indiana Right to Life. “He has shown that he puts abortion revenue over the health and safety of his patients. The recent ISDH survey revealed water leaks, improper staffing, fire hazards, smells of sewage and more at Dr. Klopfer’s Gary location. He may have surrendered his license so that he doesn’t have to comply with the law in order to avoid further penalties.

“We applaud the Pence administration and ISDH staff for taking its responsibility seriously to inspect licensed abortion facilities and hold them accountable. With Dr. Klopfer’s license surrender, there is one less abortion facility in Indiana. We now turn our attention to Dr. Klopfer’s upcoming Medical Licensing Board hearing on June 25. The Board will review 1,833 alleged abortion violations. We believe Dr. Klopfer’s carelessness does a disservice to the medical community and his patients. We urge the Board to remove Dr. Klopfer’s medical license.”

Klofper, who lives in Illinois, still has his Fort Wayne and South Bend abortion sites licensed with the state, despite only doing abortions in South Bend.

Indiana Right to Life’s mission is to protect the right to life, especially of unborn children, through positive education, compassionate advocacy and promotion of healthy alternatives to abortion.
