Operation Rescue Will Oppose Plans to Bring Abortion Back To Wichita

Pro-life supporters will gather Saturday, December 18, at 10:00 AM to peacefully pray and protest Mila Means intention to abort babies in this abortion-weary community

UPDATE BELOW!

Wichita, KS — Operation Rescue has learned that a Kansas physician plans to open an abortion clinic soon in Wichita, Kansas.

Abortionist Mila Means has reportedly purchased abortion equipment from the now-closed Women’s Health Care Services formerly operated by George Tiller, and plans to open on Saturdays for abortions at her private office near East Harry and Webb Road in Wichita. She has been seen at the Aid For Women clinic in Kansas City, Kansas, where she is reportedly in training. Means is a family practice physician who is not certified as an ob/gyn.

“We are saddened by the news that someone would want to bring abortion back to Wichita,” said Newman. “The city has been abortion-free for a year and a half. It is clear that abortion is unwanted and unneeded in this abortion-weary community.”

Means has a troubled past that includes disciplinary action taken against her medical license for the misuse of psychiatry in her family practice, having improper personal relationships with patients, and for something more serious that the Kansas Board of Healing Arts has redacted from her public record.

However, the Board did indicate in Means’ disciplinary documents that it had the authority to discipline her under a Kansas law for unprofessional conduct including the “commission of any act of sexual abuse, misconduct, or exploitation related to the licensee’s professional practice.”

Redactions prevented the disclosure of details of the alleged sexual abuse, misconduct, or exploitation, and omitted some of the disciplinary action taken against her.

“Information like this is often withheld because it would destroy the person’s reputation if it were made public. Whatever Means did to merit such discipline should be cause for concern to anyone who may seek services from her,” said Newman.

The pro-life community will respond with a prayerful protest from 10:00-11:00 AM outside Means office located at 9916 E. Harry in Wichita, Kansas. Statements will be made to the press at 10:00 AM.

“We are urging everyone who can on such short notice to turn out to pray and send a resounding message that we will exhaust every legal means available to prevent even one more child from dying from abortion here,” said Newman.

Update on Wichita’s Abortionists in Training (Dec. 17, 2010)

Wichita, KS – On Wednesday, before we even posted the news ourselves, we tipped off the Associated Press to the names of two abortionists in training who have expressed an interest in aborting babies in Wichita, Kansas. On our web site, we only listed one, Mila Means.

The second abortionist is Gregory S. Linhardt, an anesthesiologist who is training with Means at Aid for Women in Kansas City, Kansas. We did not mention him in our initial report because information about his intentions was still a bit foggy. We had hoped the Associated Press could clarify if he would be opening his own abortion business in Wichita or would be in cahoots with Means. We have been able to confirm that Means and Linhardt intend to opentwo separate abortion businesses in Wichita.

Like Means, Linhardt has his own legal troubles. According to page 13 of a document available online from the Andover Police Department, Lindhart was arrested and booked into jail on March 23rd of this year for violating a protective order near the home of his estranged wife.

It seems that both Means and Linhardt, after personal and legal problems that tarnished their reputations (and presumably their earning potential), have sunk to the level of committing abortions.

Please join us in praying that neither abortionist Means nor Linhardt will follow through with their plans and that Wichita will remain abortion-free.

    Sometimes, even the most proficient pro-life advocates can get weary of the uphill battle. I believe there is a better way to ultimately WIN this fight and perhaps you will assist me. I am the author and composer of a significant musical drama which has yet to be produced due to funding. As you know, the global economy has not been kind to the average working person, let alone people with artistic endeavors. Most pro-life organizations, like yourselves I hope, are more familiar with other cores pro-life organizations. My hope is that with a little help from eveyone, this dream will be accomplished. A little bit can go a long way. Build a better weapon. Give a bigger bang to your prolife dollars. Help this project come to fruition. It will work for all of us. The musical drama is entitled, “the Icons of Dzady”. It was completed in Dec. 1999. it includes 16 pieces of music, 10 of which are songs, 6 highly orchestrated pieces and 4 are designed to be dances. One man can write and compose but one man can not carry on its successful performance. Incidentally, the financial help I’m looking for will not only creatively enhance the Pro-Life message to the entire world but will create artistic jobs for pro-life musicians, actors, stage and film people and inspire the artistic prolife message into a whole different direction. Help me to fulfill this gift that has been given.
