Neurologist Bettinger at PP

Kansas has a history of abortionists lacking formal training in obstetrics & gynecology, and abortion clinics have kept women in the dark about that.

Even now, with Kansas abortion clinics posting their abortion admission/consent forms online, they have not been including profile data on their abortionists on that form.  Knowing zilch about the abortionist contradicts the intent of full “consent.”

Kansas abortion clinic websites (except one very newly updated site) give no inkling of

  • the abortionists’ ages (five of the eight Kansas providers are over age 74)
  • or training (or lack of it).

For example, the Planned Parenthood business in Overland Park, Kansas, has recently begun listing a 76-year-old neurologist/psychiatrist, Irene E. Bettinger, on their online abortion consent form.

Bettinger received a medical degree 51 years ago. It’s anyone’s guess why she’s begun doing abortions. There was no news release found about Bettinger, or her qualifications for abortion provision. Perhaps she’s getting “on the job” training from Planned Parenthood’s other two abortionists, 76-year-old Ron Yeomans and 75-year-old Orrin Moore.

Abortionists Yeomans & Moore

In 2005, Bettinger testified against a pro-life bill in Kansas designed to protect teens from rapists coercing them into abortion. She has financially contributed to Planned Parenthood. But that is incidental to the fact that Planned Parenthood has decided she will be their provider.

Women searching for information online about Kansas abortion clinics only learn what the businesses want them to know.

Abortions in Kansas are contracted with one phone call or email contact. The Kansas Board of Healing Arts website can be searched to find some data on licensees, but there is no information on malpractice suits filed, the state where the abortionist actually resides, or the length of time they have been employed by the clinic.

The Kansas abortion consent forms (all online) are statutorily intended to be a “contract” verifying that the woman is fully informed about “her” provider, the exact abortion method to be used, medical risks, and the developmental characteristics of her unborn child.

The current abortion consent forms are not personalized, specific fact-based contracts.  They name all the staff abortionists, leaving each woman guessing whether she is stuck with someone who

  • is very inexperienced –or long past retirement;
  • has merited– or been stripped of– hospital privileges; and
  • is only in Kansas a few hours per month for abortions and not available for complications.

A KFL priority bill, the Disclose Act, HB 2319, was passed by the Kansas House 87-37 on March 30. An identical companion Senate version, Disclose Act, SB 98, awaits a vote in the Senate after they return from their recess in three weeks. The Disclose Act requires seven bullet points of data for each staff abortionist be itemized on the consent form.

Women should be given all relevant medical information before weighing an abortion decision, as well as a list of the free maternity support services in Kansas. The Woman’s Right to Know website provides this information and state law says that abortion clinics must post “an easily identifiable link” to that site on the clinic’s “home page.”

But that is not happening!  One abortion business has no state link on the home page and the other clinics drastically reduce the link’s type size and use light grey ink so it’s barely visible, or readable, much less “easily identifiable.”

Abortion clinic websites that are not correctly following Kansas law to help inform women are at the same time withholding the most elementary and pertinent information about their staff practitioners.

That needs to change.

Darling, think of all the money!

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?

Door posting tells of Aug. 31 Lawrence PP closing

Now that the Planned Parenthood of Lawrence, near the University of Kansas (KU), quietly closed 9 weeks ago, Kansas is down to 3 abortion clinics–all in the northeast corner of the state.

The Lawrence PP street-mall facility was not licensed or inspected by the state.  It provided contraceptives and chemical abortions with no doctor onsite. The notice on the door attributes its closure to a “lack of need” and recommends the county and KU clinics as well as the PP clinic one-half-hour away.

Too many resident KU students went to this facility, instead of getting help from their family and connecting with sound pro-life physicians.   We recommend pregnant women of any age consult the Pregnancy Care Center of Lawrence, where they can obtain physician-reviewed ultrasounds and assistance for a variety of needs. (see this list for other centers across Kansas)

Kansas’ remaining abortion facilities are: (more…)
