TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) An administrative judge has issued an order revoking a Kansas doctor’s license over her referrals of young patients for late-term abortions.
The judge said Dr. Ann Kristen Neuhaus failed to meet accepted standards of care in performing mental health evaluations on 11 patients, aged 10 to 18, in 2003. The order was made public Tuesday.
Neuhaus provided the second opinions that allowed the late Dr. George Tiller, of Wichita, to terminate the patients’ pregnancies.
But Administrative Judge Ed Gaschler, who presided over a hearing for Neuhaus, said the care of the patients was seriously jeopardized by her actions.
The revocation order will be reviewed by the State Board of Healing Arts, which regulates physicians.
Neuhaus attorney Bob Eye did not immediately return a telephone message seeking comment.
