FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - Indiana Right to Life filed nearly 500 new complaints against Dr. Ulrich Klopfer Monday. The abortion doctor is accused of failing to report an abortion on a 13-year-old in Fort Wayne, in accordance with state law.

The new complaints, filed with the Indiana State Attorney General's Office, represent hundreds of new cases, and point out errors on Dr. Klopfer's terminated pregnancy reports. One of the errors, pointed out by Indiana Right to Life, claims the fetus was 88 weeks at the time of the abortion. However, the typically time frame for a pregnancy is 40 weeks.

The case that raises the most concern for pro-life activists is the failure to report an abortion on a 13-year-old. In Indiana, failing to report an abortion to the state on a girl under the age of 14 within three days is considered a class B misdemeanor. The document revealed by Indian Right to Life, last month, shows the abortion happened in early February, but it wasn't filed with the state until several months later.

"It's heartbreaking. There is nothing to cheer about in the abortion fight, even when you find something like this that may be used and be very helpful in bringing the attention of the authorities to someone who is literally ripping babies apart and discarding them with surgical waste," said Cathie Humbarger, Executive Director, Allen County Right to Life.

Humbarger and Indiana Right to Life are hoping the Attorney General Office's investigation will result in the Indiana Medical Licensing Board taking action to prevent Klopfer from practicing medicine.

Humbarger says they are receiving updates from the AG's office, but have no time frame on when their investigation will be complete.
