Kris Neuhaus "rubber stamped" late abortions

The Kansas state Healing Arts Board is taking action against licensee Kristin Neuhaus for enabling illegal late-term abortions and AP reports a preliminary hearing took place last week.  Kansans for Life hopes this action, and loss of her license, can move forward quickly.

Neuhaus still has a state medical license, although it is of  “exempt” status.  On her 2010 renewal form, she described her professional activities as “Self-Employed, Solo-Practice…Charitable Health Care, Treatment of Family and Friends with no compensation.”

In the past, Neuhaus was observed assisting at an indigent clinic in Kansas City, Kansas but her current work address(es) are hidden by the Board.  Although  they have not done so for other Kansas abortionists, they have uniquely blocked her business addresses, citing open record exemption K.S.A. 45-221 (a)(30) to prevent “an invasion of personal privacy.”

Notably, 2 of the 3 non-Kansan abortionists who performed late-term abortions (more…)

Abortionist Kris Neuhaus testified at Tiller's trial that she approved "mental health" post-viability abortions by phone

Kansans for Life congratulates Rep. Steve Huebert (R-Valley Center) on winning first round approval Monday of a ban on abortions done for “mental health” of the mother when the unborn child is viable.  UPDATE: In final action, HB 2166 passed by a veto- proof  vote of 89-33.

The first publicized flouting of the Kansas ban on viable abortions happened just weeks after the law went into effect in 1998.  The case involved a Michigan 12-year-old, then within the year, an Arizona 14-year-old, both taken to Tiller’s Wichita clinic.

State reports showed all gruesome late-term partial-birth abortions were done for the mother’s mental health! State reports annually failed to indicate imminent maternal death or physical medical conditions that would justify the destruction of babies able to live outside their mother at the time of the abortion.

The KFL-initiated 2008 citizen grand jury in Wichita saw redacted abortion files that indicated illegalities, compatible with what psychiatric expert, Dr. Paul McHugh, discovered:  phony ‘mental health reasons’ made repeatedly by the same financially dependent doctor, Kris Neuhaus.

At Tiller’s March 2009 criminal trial, Neuhaus was forced (more…)

Michelle Armesto and husband Pedro enjoy a lighter moment at last year's KFL Valentine banquet, where they gave the keynote speech about Michelle's coerced & illegal 2003 abortion.

In 1998, Kansas passed a law banning post-viability abortions, but without civil remedies for victims of illegal abortions. (The beauty of civil remedies is shown in the case of O. J. Simpson, who  was successfully sued in civil court by the family of his victim, even though O.J. had been exonerated in the criminal trial.)

Tragically, several thousands of supposedly-banned abortions took place in Kansas without criminal prosecutions. That’s why we need (more…)

KFL Distraught Over Exit of KS Healing Board Director:  Abortion Suspected As Cause

Statement by KFL Executive Director Mary Kay Culp:

“Jack Confer was our last hope against the complete and total corruption of this state by abortion forces, and with his resignation, no matter what the reason, that hope is dashed.

“It has only been under Confer’s leadership that the Board enforced the state’s law banning affiliated medical referrals for post-viability abortions. We are upset and outraged and demand Kansas legislators do whatever they can to get to the bottom of this. If indeed abortion is the reason for Confer’s resignation, as we suspect, it underscores the desperate need Kansas has for a governor, public officials and a medical board that are not pawns of the abortion industry.”

In a strongly worded Dec. 2008 revocation petition against George Tiller, the Board –under Confer–alleged six years of illegal post-viability abortion referrals had transpired at Tiller’s facility in Wichita, including 11 cases of minors as young as 10. (more…)
