Gary Doctor Banned From Performing Abortions
July 24, 2013 — The Indiana Department of Health’s officially informed a physician that he cannot perform abortions in Gary because he failed to submit admitting privilege documentation — as required by the new state law.
Lake County Right to Life said today in a news release that it… and its state organization… got copies of a June 27th letter from the state to Dr. Ulrich Klopfer of Gary’s Friendship Family Planning facility. The letter also informs Klopfer of punishment if he fails to comply.
Dr. Klopfer also reportedly runs clinics in South Bend and Fort Wayne. Lake County Right to Life says Dr. Klopfer is also scheduled to go on trial next January 26th on charges of late reporting of an abortion performed in Gary on a 13-year-old girl.
