Indianapolis, IN – The Indiana Attorney General’s office announced yesterday that it has filed administrative complaints against four abortionists in three counties for recordkeeping violations. The Medical Licensing Board will determine what discipline the violations warrant.

The complaints were filed against abortionists Ulrich Klopfer, Resad Pasic, Kathleen Glover and Raymond Robinson.

The case is based on complaints filed by Indiana Right to Life, which obtained copies of Termination of Pregnancy reports that must be filed with the state’s Department of Health and discovered that not only were abortionists omitting important information from the forms, but they were also not reporting suspected child sexual abuse on underage girls as young as 13. This meant that these girls faced the very real possibility that they were being given abortions then handed back to their rapist for further abuse.

Operation Rescue consulted with Indiana Right to Life on this case.

According to Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s press release, Ulrich Klopfer, who faces criminal charges in two counties, was by far the chief offender.

In the most egregious complaint, Dr. Ulrich Klopfer of South Bend, Ind. is accused of consistently submitting incomplete, inaccurate and late documentation of the abortion procedures he performs. His alleged violations total 1,833, and are based on complaints brought to the AG’s Office by the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency. Additionally, Klopfer faces criminal misdemeanor charges in Lake and St. Joseph counties for similar alleged violations involving abortions performed on 13-year-old patients.

Indiana law requires physicians performing abortion procedures to submit terminated pregnancy reports to the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) for statistical purposes and comply with other advice and consent requirements and record-keeping requirements. A doctor of osteopathy, Klopfer performed abortion procedures in South Bend and Gary and previously did so in Fort Wayne.

The total 1,833 alleged violations or counts comprise one administrative complaint against Klopfer’s license, filed with the Medical Licensing Board today:

-1,818 counts of submitting incomplete and incorrect terminated pregnancy reports, as required by Indiana Code 16-34-2-5(b).
-Two counts of failure to timely submit a terminated pregnancy report for 13-year-old patients within three days of the abortion procedure, as required by Indiana Code 16-34-2-5(b).
-Six counts of failure to ensure informed and voluntary consent was obtained through properly credentialed counselors, as required by Indiana Code 16-34-2-1.1.
-Seven counts of failure to ensure informed and voluntary consent was obtained 18 hours prior to performing procedures, as required by Indiana Code 16-34-2-1.1(a)(1).

“The pending criminal charges brought by county prosecutors along with the sheer volume of unexplained violations by this licenseholder merits review by the Medical Licensing Board to determine whether disciplinary action is warranted for the noncompliance,” Zoeller said.

“We are encouraged by the filing of these Administrative Complaints today and urge the Board to revoke Ulrich Klopfer’s medical license due to the fact that he placed young girls in serious risk of continued rape and other abuse by neglecting to report,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Each of these abortionist require stiff discipline in order to impress it upon others that laws are meant to be followed and that they are not above it.”

New Book, Abortion Free, Tells the Inside Story of Late-Term Abortionist George Tiller and His “After Tiller” Protégés

Wichita, KS – On Monday evening, PBS plans to air the film, After Tiller, which features three late-term abortionists, LeRoy Carhart, Shelley Sella, and Susan Robinson, who worked with George Tiller doing very late-term abortions in Wichita, Kansas.

After Tiller fails to tell the true story of what actually happened in Wichita while Carhart, Sella, and Robinson worked for Tiller. Those three abortionists are not the saints portrayed in the movie, as we witnessed first-hand,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

Newman and Cheryl Sullenger have laid out the horrific truth about Tiller’s late-term abortion business and the After Tiller abortionists in a new book, Abortion Free, which is set for release on October 2, 2014. The book is currently available for pre-order from WorldNetDaily Books.

In the book, Newman and Sullenger relate the story of the gruesome death of Christin Gilbert, a Downs syndrome teen that died as a result of a horrifically botched third trimester abortion at Tiller’s infamous late-term abortion facility in Wichita. It details Carhart’s involvement and his evasion of a grand jury subpoena that thwarted justice in that case.

The authors also describe:

• How former Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius illegally wined and dined the most notorious abortionists in the world, including those featured in the After Tiller film.

• The real story of former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline, a pro-life hero who stood up to Sebelius’s political agenda to protect Tiller from criminal prosecution – an effort that cost his political career.

• The inside story of Operation Rescue’s campaign to expose wrongdoing by Tiller and his associates that the likes of Rachel Maddow don’t want the public to know.

• How George Tiller was legally and peacefully shut down prior to his murder.

But more importantly, Abortion Free details how pro-life supporters can successfully close abortion clinics using the proven strategies and tactics that have contributed to the closure of 73% of all abortion facilities in America since 1991.

Abortion Free is a manual for the pro-life movement that teaches how anyone can stop abortion through peaceful and legal means,” said Newman. “Our experiences with Tiller and other abortionists around the nation that have been closed down using the methods described in our book serve as a blueprint for building an abortion-free America once community at a time.”

BREAKING NEWS: Haskell’s Attorneys Will Not Appeal Closure Order, Surgical Abortions to End Friday in Sharonville

By Cheryl Sullenger

sharonvilleCincinnati, OH — Attorneys for Martin Haskell’s Sharonville abortion facility have announced that they will not appeal a ruling issued last week by Judge Jerome Metz upholding the Ohio Department of Health’s closure order. Haskell must cease surgical abortions his Sharonville office by Friday, August 22, 2014.

“This is such a huge victory for all who respect life and the rule of law,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, which worked with Greater Cincinnati Right to Life to expose Haskell’s abortion abuses. “Haskell had the attitude that he was above the law and deserved to operate under a different standard as everyone else. Today, the law has prevailed.”

Haskell operated for years under a variance issued by the ODH that allowed him to continue operating as long as he maintained an approved agreement with two physicians to supply hospital care for women injured during abortions done by Haskell in Sharonville. However, Haskell continually changed the agreement without notifying the ODH. The physicians he had agreements with were a troubled lot that case doubt on whether they could supply adequate hospital care for patients.

The ODH declined to renew Haskell’s variance in January and revoked his facility license. Haskell appealed the decision, but lost every step of the way.

Haskell has operated in the Cincinnati area for 32 years. Over the past 18 months, nearly half of Ohio’s abortion facilities have closed.

“When the authorities enforce the law, abortion clinics close,” said Newman. “This just shows that abortion facilities, including Haskell’s, operate at such a low standard that women are endangered at them every day. The state is fulfilling their duty to protect the public by shutting down abortion businesses that can’t comply with the law.”
