Admitting that being the “poorest doctor in the state” drove her bid to try opening an abortion business in Wichita, Kansas-licensed practitioner Mila Means was dubbed “not the ideological warrior many expected” in a New York Times profile this weekend.
Poor Mila, broke and in hock,(see this article) went to the stellar training center for “abortion care” (as our opponents call it) –the Central Family Medicine medicaid clinic in the lowest income area of Kansas City, Kansas, also doing business Aid for Women.
Since the late 1980s, this clinic has been the incubator for abortion malpractice and professional misbehavior by failed practitioners, who also were ‘broke and in hock’: Joseph Manley, Malcolm Knarr, Sherman Zaremski, Kristin Neuhaus, Krishna Rajanna. (Note: state medical board actions are not yet online for these practitioners, but KFL has the records.)
Although Means had not reported ever “working” at this site on her official Kansas medical license renewals in May 2010 or in May 2011, the Times reports
“Dr. Means’s work in Kansas City ended abruptly last month, after she had performed about 50 abortions, half her training goal, when the clinic shifted its focus to trying to stay open under the new state regulations that dictate requirements for the size of rooms at abortion clinics, the stocking of emergency equipment, medications and blood supplies, and ties to hospitals.”
Not only did she fail her “training” at arguably the worst medical facility in the state, her abortion supporters reportedly are not staying with her. The Times said, “A second effort to establish an abortion clinic is under way, led by a group of prominent abortion rights advocates.The group has raised money but is still searching for a doctor…
The unnamed “prominent” group may just be the TrustWomen political action group, created by Julie Burkhart (formerly George Tiller’s right-hand operative) which has targeted Kansas, and hopes to open clinics.
The president of Planned Parenthood Kansas-Mid Missouri told the Times they have abandoned trying to find an abortionist for their Wichita facility, “after failing to find a local doctor willing to endure the expected harassment.” Which begs the question, why don’t they want Means, as she is ready, willing and available?
