Enough Already

Another medical provider, one focused on women’s health has fallen victim to Operation Rescue and the inaptly named “Right-to-Life”. These are the same people who cheered at the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in 2009. It seems it will never end, women’s health and those who provide healthcare will continue to be under assault until we throw up our hands in surrender.

Dr. Ann Neuhaus will lose her license if Kansas has their way. The years she spent in school will be lost. The years she spent serving women in her community, lost.

If you read the article, the deck was stacked against her before she ever stepped before the board that would judge her; one seeded by an Anti-Abortion Governor with past members of Operation Rescue. The outcome was decided before Dr. Neuhaus presented a single piece of evidence or answered a single question.

Is this the America any of us want? Whether you support a woman’s right to choose, or not. Is this truly the America you want?



In a continuing effort to both curb access to abortion and reiterate their own opinion that there is never any situation where abortion could be necessary for a patient’s well-being, the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts has decided in favor of revoking Dr. Ann Neuhaus’s medical license. Neuhaus, a colleague of Dr. George Tiller, assisted him by providing second opinions for mental health exceptions for late abortions.

According to the Associated Press, Neuhaus was hoping to have her full medical license restored after spending years only allowed to provide limited medical care for charity work.  Instead, an ongoing investigation into 11 patient cases obtained by Operation Rescue became the center of a movement to have her license stripped all together.

  1. As time progresses, you would think we would become more intelligent, more civilized………not happening.

  2. No, Val, Red. There’s no “war on women” — it’s all in your silly heads. Just take some smelling salts and all will be well.

    What fucking century are we living in?

    • How about “bath salts”? They seem to be working wonders for people. Pretty soon will be run by American Zombies.

    • I am not at all certain, but I hear they have a sale on Bustles and Parasols at Goodwill.

      • Yesterday’s Supreme Court decision to uphold Obamacare (and yes I use that term because, well, Obama cares — why run away from that?) made me a little more hopeful. Not for this doctor, and likely not for Kansas (the little state that started a whole lot of this crap many years ago with their education policies).

        • Only problem? Roberts swung SCOTUS by calling it a tax.

          More ammunition for those ijits.

          • I always thought it was a tax, and that the Commerce Clause argument was just too wonky. And, in my book, taxes collected for the public good are ok. Of course, I didn’t swear loyalty to Grover Norquist (or Grover from Sesame Street, either).

            • I never cared what it was called in all honesty. The mandate in my mind, needs to eventually become Single-Payer. I suspect this will be the next step but not anytime soon.

              I also never swore loyalty to any parts of a Grover.

  3. No. It is not the America I want to live in…ever.
