Zakas Writes Holcomb with Concerns about Potential South Bend Abortion Business

October 26, 2017

Sen. Joe Zakas

Indiana Senator Joe Zakas (District 11) took swift action following the announcement of an abortion business trying to open in South Bend. Sen. Zakas, whose district includes part of St. Joseph County, wrote to Gov. Eric Holcomb on Oct. 18. In the letter (below), Sen. Zakas shared he heard from more than 200 constituents in just one weekend following the news of the abortion business’s application.

Dr. Ulrich Klopfer

Sen. Zakas also cites a South Bend Tribune article that links the proposed abortion business’s administrator with Dr. Ulrich Klopfer’s now-shuttered South Bend abortion facility. The proposed administrator was on staff for Klopfer, according to the article. Klopfer’s abortion facilities in Gary, Fort Wayne and South Bend had a long list of health and safety violations against them and Klopfer eventually lost his medical license in 2016.

 

Thank you, Sen. Zakas, for voicing the concerns shared by so many of your constituents about an abortion business trying to open in South Bend.

Two hundred constituents speaking up in one weekend is a strong statement. You too can add your voice of opposition to this potential abortion business in South Bend. Sign the petition here and keep South Bend abortion-free: http://p2a.co/XiEMDui.

Letter from IN Sen. Joe Zakas to IN Gov. Eric Holcomb:

October 18, 2017

Dear Governor Holcomb:

An Austin, Texas-based company is seeking an Indiana license to open a non-surgical abortion facility in South Bend, as outlined in the enclosed article from the South Bend Tribune. I wanted you to know the depth of concern from many people about this organization’s application. I received over 200 messages from my constituents in one weekend after the news broke. I know other members of the General Assembly and our federal representatives have been hearing from folks, as well.

It appears the company in question, Whole Woman’s Health, has had a history of health violations at its other clinics. Further, the article indicates that the proposed administrator of the facility used to work for a South Bend abortion provider whose practice was closed in 2015 after the state revoked his medical license.

Indiana has a long history of being a state that stands for pro-life policies. Many believe your administration will reflect that history. Thank you, Governor, for your consideration.

Sincerely yours,

Senator Joe Zakas
