The Kansas Board of Healing Arts has decided to continue barring from the practice of medicine abortionist Ann Kristin Neuhaus due to what members consider serious record-keeping issues.
As the Associated Press reports, Neuhaus was found to have once provided false mental health diagnoses to legally justify late-term abortion referrals to the late George Tiller in his Wichita abortion facility.
In 2012, the Board revoked Neuhaus’ license to provide charity care after discovering she had conducted inadequate mental health exams nine years earlier on pregnant girls ages 10 to 18–declaring that they suffered from irreversible mental health illnesses–and then referred the patients to Tiller. At the time, to receive an otherwise illegal late-term abortion, Kansas law required another unaffiliated doctor’s opinion that a patient would permanently be harmed physically or mentally if she carried her unborn baby to term.
Neuhaus challenged the revocation of her license, and a Shawnee County District Court judge ordered the Board to reconsider its decision.
Nevertheless, on Friday, the Board came to the conclusion that Neuhaus’ record-keeping of the mental health exams to justify referrals to Tiller for late-term abortions was enough to bar her from practicing medicine.
As Breitbart News reported in August of 2013, the Huffington Post referred to Neuhaus as “the latest casualty in the Kansas abortion war” when the abortionist reported she was on the verge of declaring bankruptcy. The HuffPo story depicted Neuhaus as living in dire circumstances in a disheveled home in rural Kansas.
“Neuhaus has shown that she has nothing but contempt for the Board of Healing Arts and for the rules that govern every licensed physician in Kansas,” said the pro-life Operation Rescue’s Cheryl Sullenger, who initially filed a complaint against Neuhaus in 2006. She added:
[Neuhaus] has indicated that she knows better than the Board, and I have no doubt that if she is ever allowed to practice again, she will once again commit similar acts of negligence and incompetence. The Board’s action today was necessary to protect the public from an abortionist that believes she is above the law.
