Three Indiana Abortion Doctors Forced to Pay Administrative Fines

INDIANAPOLIS – Today, the Indiana Medical Licensing Board held hearings for three Indianapolis abortion doctors regarding administrative licensing complaints. The complaints were filed in Sept. 2014 by Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s office for alleged violations of abortion procedure record keeping. The Medical Licensing Board decided to levy administrative fines against the abortion doctors instead of take disciplinary action regarding their medical licenses.

Abortion doctors Resad Pasic, Kathleen Glover and Raymond Robinson perform abortions at the Clinic for Women on West 16th Street in Indianapolis.

Indiana Right to Life Vice President of Policy Enforcement, Cathie Humbarger, who was present at today’s hearing said, “We are disappointed that the Indiana Medical Licensing Board did not feel the abortion doctors’ violations were grave enough to result in disciplinary action against their medical licenses. We believe poor practices in record keeping show a blatant disregard for women’s health and safety. Women in our state deserve better. We are thankful that these abortion doctors aren’t completely off the hook as they will have to pay administrative fines for their deficiencies.

“While the outcome isn’t what we desired, we are thankful that the abortion industry is being held accountable. Today’s hearing exposed just one area where the Clinic for Women failed to live up to high standards expected in the medical community. We know the Indiana State Department of Health is also aware of their facility standards and medical practices. Earlier this year we released findings from the Department’s physical survey of their facility. Among the deficiencies listed in the survey were incomplete medical documents, missing records of staff immunizations, dust on the ultrasound machine and a major tear in the exam table cover.

“The Indiana Medical Licensing Board will soon have another opportunity to act on egregious practices in the abortion industry. Dr. Ulrich Klopfer, who runs an abortion facility in South Bend, is scheduled to appear before the Board on Dec. 3. Klopfer’s hearing is the result of the Attorney General’s filing of an administrative complaint against Klopfer’s license, comprised of 1,833 alleged violations or counts. We look forward to Klopfer’s hearing and expect the Medical Licensing Board to take action in order to protect women’s health and safety.”
