(INDIANAPOLIS) - The Indiana Medical Licensing Board has suspended the license of a former abortion provider.

The Journal Gazette reports that the board suspended 71-year-old Ulrich Klopfer early Friday for six months and issued a $3,000 fine.

The board found him guilty of five of nine charges, including one related to late reporting of abortions performed on two girls under the age of 14. Two charges referenced sedation and medical practices, and two others involved state law requiring informed consent 18 hours before the procedure on a handful of women.

Klopfer has performed tens of thousands of procedures in Fort Wayne, Gary and South Bend over several decades but isn't currently practicing. All three of his abortion clinics have closed but he told the panel he wants to reopen.
