Abortionist in Indiana failed to report statutory rape of 13-year-old

Prolife advocates in Indiana have discovered that an abortionist who operates a clinic in Fort Wayne failed to notify authorities after performing an abortion on a 13-year-old girl. 

Allen County Right to Life Executive Director Cathie Humbarger said she and sidewalk counselor Evelyn Witte of Fort Wayne filed complaints with the attorney general and the Indiana Medical Licensing Board alleging Dr. Ulrich Klopfer performed the abortion Feb. 7 at the Fort Wayne Women’s Health Organization but did not report it to the Indiana Department of Health until July 25.

Under state law, abortions on patients under age 14 must be reported within three days to the Health Department and the Indiana Department of Child Services because sex with a girl under 14 is recognized as child molesting in Indiana, no matter how old the male is. The anti-abortion group said it discovered the case because Humbarger regularly reviews public terminated pregnancy reports.
