Operation Rescue Needs Rescue
WICHITA | The anti-abortion organization Operation Rescue says it’s close to shutting down unless emergency financial help arrives soon.
Group president Troy Newman sent an e-mail Monday night to donors saying the organization is in a financial crisis.
Newman blames the economy. But the Wichita-based organization has also taken heavy criticism after the May 31 shooting death of abortion provider George Tiller — not only from abortion-rights supporters but also from anti-abortion militants.
Sadly, I’m sure some wingnut somewhere will turn on the wingnut welfare tap.
