SOUTH BEND — Detectives from the St. Joseph County Special Victims unit served a search warrant Wednesday at the South Bend clinic where Dr. Ulrich “George” Klopfer provides abortions and other services, the county prosecutor’s office confirmed.
Detectives took files and other paperwork from Klopfer’s office at the Women’s Pavilion on Ironwood Drive, prosecutor’s office spokeswoman Jessica McBrier confirmed. They returned the original paperwork on Thursday after they made copies for investigation records.
McBrier said the search warrant was served as part of an ongoing investigation into Klopfer based on complaints and accompanying paperwork from St. Joseph County Right To Life Program Director Jeanette Burdell.
The complaints include documentation of delayed reporting of an abortion performed on a 13-year-old girl in 2013 and alleged errors and omissions in terminated pregnancy reports filed with the Indiana State Department of Health, among other things, said Burdell.
