Indiana board asks abortion doctor to appear

FORT WAYNE, Ind. - A doctor who performs abortions in Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend has been asked to appear before the Indiana Medical Licensing Board.

An Indiana Professional Licensing Agency spokeswoman tells The Journal Gazette the agency requested a personal appearance by Dr. Ulrich Klopfer after seeing reports he might not have not properly filed reports with the state.

Ulrich told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Saturday that he found it "amazing" that a paperwork error could jeopardize his license. He says he's never lost a patient.

Ulrich conceded two reports were not filed with the state in a timely fashion. Indiana Right to Life and the South Bend Tribune have reported discrepancies in Ulrich's reporting.

The Indiana attorney general's office has not filed any disciplinary complaints against Klopfer.
