Operation Rescue says it's broke, may shut down
Source: Associated Press

WICHITA, Kan. Operation Rescue has told its supporters it is facing a "major financial crisis" and is very close to shutting down unless emergency help arrives soon.

Troy Newman, the anti-abortion group's president, blamed the economic downturn for its money woes in a desperate plea e-mailed Monday night to donors. But the Wichita-based organization has also been under attack from both fringe anti-abortion militants and abortion rights supporters since the May 31 shooting death of Dr. George Tiller.

"We're now so broke (as the saying goes), we can't even pay attention," Newman wrote.

Newman told The Associated Press in an interview after the mailing that the group has only four paid employees left, compared to nine a year ago. The group typically has an annual budget of $600,000, but donations this year have been down 30 to 40 percent. Newman, who earns $60,000 annually, said he hasn't been paid in two months.

They rule by fear and shame. They're another group that preaches hate, metaphorically leaves a loaded gun on the table and then isn't even sorry when doctors, nurses, and clinic volunteers are stalked, terrorized, and murdered.

if this isn't just a fake-out designed to stir up their sympathizers into increasing their donations.

29. Hope this isn't just a $$ raising ploy. I hope they're in serious trouble.
Maybe people aren't forking over because they realized that even a Republican Congress and a Republican President wanted abortion to remain legal.

53. ~ Donations way down during a recession ~
Yet another example of how Conservative/Republican philosophy falls short. The government is supposed to leave support for the needy to private, charitable organizations, yet time and again we see that these groups' funding sinks the lowest in times of most dire need.

As late term abortions go, the Operation Rescue nuts have to be one of the most vile groups around. Their veneer of "religious beliefs" masks the hatred and violence within.

80. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Of course, that means Randall Terry will just form another organization to avoid going back to selling used cars, which is what he did before terrorizing women at clinics.

82. good to be rid of em
However we must be on our guard, when radical organiztions start to break down or collapse they typically spawn even more radical splinter groups.

I would not be surprised if this doesn't result in an uptick in violence and criminal action.

But otherwise yes, it is good that they are broke. It represents the fact that people are more concerned about real issues and not this nonsense so fewer people are sending money to religious nutjobs.

85. So let me get this straight....
...they either made irresponsible choices, or something unplanned happened despite their best efforts to prevent it, and now that their finances, their ability to provide, and even their existence is threatened, they expect other people to support their decisions financially; and should that not be enough, they want the right to end their situation? Gee, that sounds familiar.....

95. Some individuals and organizations will bail them out
Operation Rescue will be rescued by the like-minded who have deep pockets. Wingnut welfare will be preserved, for now.

98. Nice.
I guess it's true that every cloud has a strontium lining. Couldn't happen to crappier people.

(It's a Doctor Who reference. Sorry.)

99. No word yet on how many millions this ploy raised? Churches to start asking for
special offerings in 3...2.....1

Either that, or they're pulling a Halliburton/Diebold style name change move.

104. Gee, darn. So many civil rights violations, so little time (and money).
Is this where I thank the goddesses?
Having burnt quite a lot of incense of the years... glad somebody up on Mount Olympus got the message!!!!
