Abortion-Related Complaints Filed Against Four Doctors

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Indiana's attorney general has filed complaints against four doctors for allegedly violating the state's abortion record-keeping and advice and consent laws.
 
The administrative complaints filed Wednesday by Attorney General Greg Zoeller ask the Indiana Medical Licensing Board to consider appropriate disciplinary action against the doctors' medical licenses.
 
Indiana law requires physicians performing abortions to file terminated pregnancy reports with the state for statistical purposes and to comply with other advice-and-consent requirements and record-keeping rules.
 
One complaint alleges that Dr. Ulrich Klopfer committed more than 1,800 violations and faces misdemeanor charges in Lake and St. Joseph counties for allegedly failing to file timely public reports. He has performed abortions in Gary, South Bend and Fort Wayne. A telephone message seeking comment was left for Klopfer at his home.
