Don't look for ethical behavior or mercy when an abortionist and his paid stooge could glean $6,000 for every late-term abortion they "justified."

"...The year was 2003. Our confused little cowgirl had come, alas, to the right place: Dr. George Tiller's clinic in Wichita, the world capital of late-term abortions. Tiller promptly invoked the Kansas "rodeo exception" to the state prohibition on late-term abortions. A second physician, Dr. Ann Kristin (Kris) Neuhaus, confirmed the rodeo exception, and the baby was executed with the utmost privacy, and all for only about $6,000.

"Unfortunately, the only false detail in the story above is the rodeo exception. One can excuse the girl in question for thinking there was one, but there was not. To abort her baby, Tiller had to ignore the state's tough abortion laws. This he could do in 2003, and for the next six years, only through the protection of his political patron, then-Governor, now-Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius.

"The perverse details of Tiller's practice finally came to light this past week -- not through a hard-hitting media investigation or a criminal probe, but through an anodyne and underreported Kansas Board of Healing Arts hearing into Neuhaus's confirmation protocol.

"According to actual Kansas law in 2003, a doctor could abort a healthy, viable baby only if he and a second independent physician agreed that the abortion would prevent the mother from suffering a "substantial and irreversible impairment of a major bodily function" or save her life.

"Thus, for the official state record, Tiller interpreted the hurt that might accompany the temporary loss of barrel racing as "substantial and irreversible." Neuhaus, after a 15-or-so-minute review using a computer-generated answer tree, gave the girl her official diagnosis: "major depression, single episode." And this girl at least got a review. In one case discussed at the hearing, Neuhaus approved the abortion a week AFTER it took place."

*** The second "doctor" used exclusively after 2003 by George Tiller to put a rubber stamp on his late-term abortions was Ann K. Neuhaus, who was charged by the Kansas Board of Healing Arts with having a "symbiotic relationship" with Tiller. From 2003-2008, she was the only "doctor" signing off on his late-term abortions, and his referrals were her sole source of income ($250-300 for every "consultation," which she sometimes did over the phone). Neuhaus had (from 1999-2008) been under severe and continuing professional restriction by the DEA and the Kansas Board of Healing Arts, which had twice labeled her a “danger to the public." Because of her unethical ineptitude, Neuhaus couldn't make an honest living; Tiller was happy to make her his kept "doctor."

What are you gonna do--shoot him again?

All these claims are merely that--claims. Mental health in fact IS considered a physical health risk in many cases, such as anorexia, depression, and many others. None of these claimants examined the women involved.

As for kline, he's just the PLM's version of the grand imperial KKK wizard. His ethics are non-existent. Of course, you wouldn't know that from this horrendously-slanted piece of yellow journalism.
