Julie Burkhart

In what she no doubt thought was a clever entry Friday on her TrustWomen abortion advocacy website, Julie Burkhart called for the new Kansas Office of the Repealer to delete abortion ‘informed-consent’ requirements from 1997, as well as four new abortion-regulating laws enacted this July.

Burkhart, the former top aide to late-term abortionist George Tiller, left Kansas soon after the state Healing Arts Board filed to remove Tiller’s license in Dec. 2008. Burkhart is now itching to set up a new Wichita abortion clinic. She may be dreaming about reclaiming the approximately 2,500 non-late-term abortions that were done annually in Tiller’s clinic until his death 2 ½ years ago. At an average abortion cost of $500-$600, the clinic could gross $1.5 million.

For Burkhart to call for repealing every law constraining unethical conduct at her hoped-for abortion clinic is like a notorious slum landlord calling for repeal of home safety inspections and fair housing laws under the claim that such regulations impede providing more affordable housing to the poor.

Although Burkhart began her ‘sore loser’ list of complaints with a tongue-in-cheek premise, she was dead serious about these assertions:

  • abortion helps poor women;
  • abortion is part of ‘maternal’ care;
  • abortion of disabled children is economically beneficial;
  • private abortion clinics should not be held to the same patient protections required of surgery centers and hospitals;
  • new abortion regulations have been enacted against the will of Kansans.

None of those claims are true. Kansas pro-life laws were certainly not whisked into place by whim! The health insurance law operated for decades in the eastern part of the state.  (more…)

Down & out Mila Means(KWCH photo)

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?

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…)
