SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — The Indiana Department of Health has filed another complaint against the only abortion clinic in South Bend due to poor inspection results.

A June 3 complaint that prompted the inspection focuses on how the clinic lacks policies regarding medical abortion, a governing body to determine policies and a registry of all patients seeking services.

Dr. Ulrich Klopfer owns and provides abortions at the Women’s Pavilion. He is currently under investigation by Indiana authorities.

The South Bend Tribune reports that Klopfer has claimed anti-abortion employees at the department are trying to revoke the clinic’s license to provide the procedure.

The state previously issued a complaint against the South Bend clinic in February after it failed to address 27 deficiencies identified in an October inspection. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
