TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas regulators are considering whether a
doctor should lose her license over allegations of substandard care
for young patients she referred to the late Dr. George Tiller for
late-term abortions.

The State Board of Healing Arts was scheduled to meet Friday to
review an administrative judge's order revoking the license of Dr.
Ann Kristin Neuhaus, from Nortonville in northeast Kansas.

The judge's February order concluded that Neuhaus performed
inadequate mental health exams in 2003 on 11 patients, aged 10 to
18. Neuhaus provided the second medical opinion Tiller needed under
Kansas law to perform the late-term abortions at his Wichita

Neuhaus argues her exams met accepted standards of care. The
board must decide whether to accept the judge's order and revoke
Neuhaus' license.
