Medical Board Demands Abortion Doc Appear Who Failed to Report Rapes of Teen Girls
The Indiana state medical board is demanding that an abortion practitioner who ailed to file timely reports on the abortions he did on a teen girl who were victimized by statutory rape appear before them.
Dr. Ulrich "George" Klopfer was one of four Indiana abortion practitioners who waited weeks of even months to report abortions they did on girls under the age of 14, who are victims of rape. State law requires such reports three days following the abortion to protect girls from sexual abuse and victimization, but a recent report by the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel newspaper makes it clear there is a massive abuse of the system taking place as abortion clinics cover up rape to make money from abortions.
