Abortionists Tiller, Neuhaus Again Under Investigation By KSBHA

Suspected illegal late-term abortions subject of complaint.

Wichita, KS — Additional information was filed with the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts (KSBHA) last week to support a complaint made in October, 2006, against abortionists George R. Tiller and Ann Kristin Neuhaus for committing illegal late-term abortions. An investigation is in progress.

Submitted to the KSBHA last week were seven documents, including the 30-count criminal complaint filed against Tiller by the State Attorney General’s office last December alleging late-term abortions for reasons such as a single episode of depression. While that case was dismissed at the request of pro-abortion District Attorney Nola Foulston on jurisdictional grounds, the merits of that case have never been questioned.

“Our own investigations revealed that Tiller was likely doing illegal abortions. The former Attorney General came to that same conclusion,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

Kansas law bans late-term abortions past 22 weeks gestation, a developmental milestone recognized as viability in Kansas Law. Narrow exceptions to the law are if the woman’s life is in danger, or if the pregnancy will cause a substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function. An opinion issued by former Attorney General Carla Stovall, an abortion supporter, allowed mental health risks to be included as a “major bodily function” under the law, but only if the risk was “substantial and irreversible.”

“We are asking for the revocation of Tiller’s medical license in light of the seriousness of aborting viable babies that should be protected by law,” said Operation Rescue spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger, who filed the complaint and supporting documentation.

In 2005, 19-year old Christin Gilbert died from a botched third-trimester abortion procured at Tiller’s Wichita abortion mill. The KSBHA indicated that the “standard of practice” had not be violated, and refused to discipline Tiller. Suspicions arose at that time that political cover was given to Tiller in the Gilbert case because of his heavy campaign contributions to Gov. Kathleen Sebelius, who personally appoints the members of the KSBHA.

“We urge the KSBHA to set aside political motivations, and take an honest look at this complaint. Interview the witnesses. Subpoena the documents from the criminal case. Look at the facts. Tiller and his abortion business create a clear and present danger to viable pre-born babies and their mothers. Swift action must be taken to stop further loss of innocent life,” said Sullenger.

    I have a question……. so the only way in kansas that an abortion can be performed after 22 weeks is if the mothers health is in danger??…….. What if teh baby has a condition which is incompatible with life?

  • If the baby has a condition which is incompatable with life, why not allow her to feel the touch of her mother’s hand, to hear the words, I love you, to be cradled in her mother’s arms. If death is inevitable, let God decide. Why would a mother subject her baby to the pain of abortion if she could give a few moments of mother love to her child? The mother would have those cherished moments to relive instead of an abortion.

    I think that they need to charge tiller and he needs to be throne in jail. Any man who is willing to kill inocent babies needs to be in prison.

    And could that letter be made signable also by non USA citizens so that the actual Government in the States knows what the rest of the world think of such policies? That also regard us via the UN and the EU and other sovranational bodies.
