The Indiana Health Department has decided not to renew the operating license of abortionist Ulrich Klopfer’s South Bend clinic, the Associated Press reports.
The state’s Abortion Clinic Licensing Program recommended rejection last month, prompting the health department to send a letter to Klopfer citing patterns of non-compliance and inadequate plans for correcting his clinic’s deficiencies. “[T]hese deficiencies provide further evidence of the clinic’s inability to comply with and follow existing state law and that such behavior is an intentional and willful act,” the department contends.
Klopfer has appealed the decision, and may continue to operate until an administrative law hearing in November. If he loses the appeal, the South Bend location will be his third location to shut down amid complaints over medical standards.
As Live Action News has previously reported, his own state medical license is under review as well, for nearly two thousand charges of late, incomplete, and erroneous reports. Klopfer and his clinics have also come under scrutiny for failure to report multiple cases of statutory rape, repeat sanitary and safety violations, and violations of the state’s mandatory 18-hour waiting period for abortion.
On July 7, Live Action also reported that despite these allegations of disregard for women’s health, Klopfer still enjoys the loyalty of pro-abortion clinic escorts who have played music to drown out pro-life sidewalk counselors, screamed, and displayed signs mocking pro-lifers.
