This has been a busy week for criminal abortionists. The cases of Charles Rossman and Ulrich Klopfer, in Georgia and Indiana, respectively, both moved forward. Rossman heads to prison and it appears that Klopfer may do the same.
Charles Rossman was sentenced today to ten years, the first five of which will be served in prison and the second half on probation, for a decade-old criminal abortion case. In 2003, Rossman was operating as an abortionist out of Valdosta, Georgia, when he gave a 23-year-old pregnant mother a “handful of abortion pills,” and then locked her in his procedure room. The woman was in her third trimester of pregnancy at 30 weeks and labored alone, abandoned by the abortionist. She called 911, and when paramedics arrived they found her giving birth to a baby boy. Meanwhile, Rossman was fleeing the country, and spent 11 years running from authorities under the alias “Boris Cernoch.” Rossman was finally captured by Interpol in Germany last year, and was returned to the US for sentencing in January. Today he learned how he’ll be spending the next ten years. Rossman will also pay a $3,500 fine.
The following is a news report released after Rossman was captured:
Also this week, the case against Ulrich Klopfer moved forward in Indiana. Klopfer is accused of failing to report child sexual abuse after committing an abortion on a 13-year-old girl. Klopfer was forced to shut down his Indiana abortion business after the failure to report came to light, because Klopfer’s actions caused him to lose his legally-required “backup” physician.
This week, the 73-year-old was ordered to stand trial for the allegations in early 2015. Failure to report the crime perpetrated on the young girl is a class B misdemeanor for which Klopfer faces a $1,000 fine and up to six months in prison. Over 1,200 complaints have been filed against the abortionist for his abuse.
Meanwhile, pro-lifers in Virginia await a ruling that would keep previously convicted abortionist Steve Brigham, whose license has already been suspended in six states, from operating out of his two abortion mills in that state.
