Indiana medical licensing board rules against abortion doctor Klopfer, to hold full hearing


INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Medical Licensing Board has rejected an Illinois abortion doctor's request for a summary judgment in his favor and instead will hold a full hearing on a complaint accusing him of 1,833 violations at clinics in Gary, South Bend and Fort Wayne.

The board voted 4-0 Thursday to deny the motion by Dr. Ulrich Klopfer of Crete, Illinois, with one member abstaining. The date for the full hearing wasn't immediately set.

The Indiana Attorney General's Office filed a complaint last September charging Klopfer with 1,818 counts of submitting incomplete and incorrect abortion reports, two counts of not filing reports for 13-year-old patients within three days of procedures and 13 counts of failing to ensure counselors obtained proper consent.

Klopfer's attorney argued Indiana law didn't support the alleged paperwork violations.
