The Kansas City, Kansas, Aid for Women abortion business has been training 2 new Wichita abortionists to open their own clinic in Wichita, sometime in mid-2011.
Family practitioner Mila L. Means and anesthesiologist Gregory S. Linhardt are being shown the ropes by 70-year-old Aid for Women clinic owner/abortionist, Ronald N. Yeomans.
According to Lifenews.com, Means reportedly purchased abortion equipment from the now-closed clinic of George Tiller and plans to begin doing abortions on Saturdays, with Linhardt, at her current Wichita medical office, 9916 East Harry St. Suite 105.
Will this new clinic push against our state 22-week viability law?
The initial AP news report says that no late-term abortions will be performed there, but the phrase “late-term abortion” has no universal fixed meaning. Most Americans consider all abortions performed in the fifth month or later (18 weeks after fertilization) as “late abortions.”(see post here)
What drives these two Wichita state-licensed practitioners to descend to selling abortions? We suspect professional and personal failures.
A simple online search reveals that Means has been disciplined by the state Healing Arts Board in 2007 for medically treating her relatives and issuing a bizarre death certificate. And although much of the details are redacted, the documents tell us enough about a disturbing woman.
In 2002, Means began treating (presumably with drugs) a bi-polar man, his bi-polar mother, and his grandmother. She then married the fellow in 2003 and continuing to treat all 3 while the husband and grandmother lived in her home.
There’s no information about who attended the April 2006 death of the grandmother, but the Board faults Means for entering the cause of death as ‘realizing children character disorders.’ [huh?]
Means received a slap-on-the-wrist consent agreement that merely ordered her to take remedial professional classes in respecting patient boundaries.
This agreement was signed by former Kansas Healing Arts Board Executive Director, Larry Buening, during the time period the Board was under fire for over-leniency in dealing with psychiatrists and doctors who abused patients. Buening was forced to resign shortly thereafter.
The 54-year-old Means has been listed as practicing at Wesley Hospital.
47-year-old Gregory Linhardt is listed as associated with the Kansas Spine Hospital, and should not be confused with the older Wichita Ob/Gyn, Ronald Linhardt, on staff at Via Christi Hospital.
On March 23, 2010, an online police report (pg 13 here) shows Gregory Linhardt was thrown in jail for twice violating a restraining order. Whom the order protected is unknown. Documentation online verifies Linhardt’s wife is currently suing him for divorce and has changed her last name.
Means and Linhardt have already been added to the staff section of Aid for Women’s online abortion consent form; observers have seen Means at the clinic for months.
Abortions are obtained at Aid for Women on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and the aging Yeomans is presumably still traveling on the other weekdays to abort in West Virginia (active medical license# 21411) and Indiana (active medical license# 01059709A).
