Kansas revokes doctor's license in abortion case

View Comments

(AP) – Kansas regulators have revoked the medical license of a doctor accused of performing inadequate mental health exams on young patients she then referred to the late Dr. George Tiller for late-term abortions.

The State Board of Healing Arts on Friday ratified an administrative judge’s earlier decision to revoke Dr. Ann Kristin Neuhaus’s license.

The judge concluded in February that the Nortonville doctor’s 2003 examinations of 11 patients ages 10 to 18 were insufficient. Neuhaus provided the second medical opinions Tiller needed by law to perform the late-term abortions at his Wichita clinic.
