Kansas Doctor Still Barred Over Abortion Referrals

KSAL StaffJanuary 9, 2015

A Kansas board won’t reinstate a doctor after concluding she kept inadequate records about young patients whom she referred for late-term abortions.

The State Board of Healing Arts on Friday upheld its 2012 revocation of the license allowing Dr. Ann Kristin Neuhaus of Nortonville to provide charity care.

The board previously said she performed substandard mental health exams in 2003 for 11 patients aged 10 to 18 years.

A Shawnee County judge earlier this year overturned that finding but agreed Neuhaus kept inadequate records. The judge returned her case to the board.

Board members said Friday that inadequate records hinder patients’ future care.

Neuhaus’ second opinions on the young patients’ mental health allowed the late Dr. George Tiller’s clinic in Wichita to terminate their pregnancies.
