A former Kansas abortionist wants her medical license back and
has taken her plea to the state Supreme Court, though one pro-lifer
wonders why she would even try.
In response to the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts' unanimous
vote to revoke her license, Ann Kristin Neuhaus has filed an appeal
to the high court. But Operation Rescue's Troy Newman is confident
that her appeal will not be answered.
"We're sure, we're confident that because of the facts that have
already been entered into this case -- that she's nothing more than
a quack and a snake oil salesman -- that she's not going to get her
license back, and she will never again kill children, at least not
on this side of the law," Newman asserts.
He wonders why Neuhaus would even file an appeal when there is
such a preponderance of evidence against her.
"There might be some strategy here on her part to try and reopen
an abortion clinic in Wichita," the pro-lifer suggests, "but my
fundamental belief is that this is a last gasp of her attempting to
hang on to a medical license and to also stall paying the $93,000
that she owes the state of Kansas for court costs."
Neuhaus was found guilty of signing off on abortions for minors
and others without the mental health exams needed to comply with
laws on late-term abortions. In 1999, she was accused of violating
federal drug regulations, and two years later of repeatedly
deviating from the standard of care for patients.
