TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ The Kansas medical board plans to appeal a court order overturning its revocation of a doctor's license over her referrals of young patients for late-term abortions.

The State Board of Healing Arts made the decision Friday to take the case of Dr. Ann Kristin Neuhaus (NOO'-hows) of Nortonville to the Kansas Court of Appeals.

Shawnee County District Judge Franklin Theis last week said Neuhaus kept inadequate records but that the board failed to show that she provided inadequate mental health exams.

Theis ordered the board to reconsider its revocation of Neuhaus' charity-care license in 2012 over exams in 2003 of 11 patients, ages 10 to 18.

Neuhaus provided second opinions to the late Dr. George Tiller needed under a Kansas law for terminating the pregnancies.
