Ind. Gov't. - "Licensing board calls on abortion doc"

Niki Kelly reports in the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette in a story that begins:

INDIANAPOLIS – The doctor who performs abortions in Fort Wayne and two other cities has been asked to appear before the Indiana Medical Licensing Board.

Dr. Ulrich “George” Klopfer is still “valid to practice while reviewed,” according to state records.

Sue Swayze, communications director for the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency, said the medical licensing board requested a personal appearance by Klopfer after seeing information in the media about not properly filing reports.

Klopfer filed for license renewal under the usual process in October.

“The board has reached out to him and said, ‘You are valid, but before you renew we want you to come talk to us,’ ” Swayze said. “It’s not very often that the board does this.”

Swayze used to be the legislative director for Indiana Right to Life, and recently moved to state employment. She said she was not involved in bringing Klopfer’s case to the board’s attention.
