Operation Rescue may have seen its last days
NPR and the Associated Press are reporting that Operation Rescue may be completely out of funds and in danger of closing.

Don't remember Operation Rescue? They are the scary anti-choice organization, who've been linked to a number of violent anti-choicers, including the man who killed Dr. Tiller. From NPR:

Roeder, who is charged with shooting Tiller during a Sunday morning church service, had the name and number of an Operation Rescue adviser in his car.

Operation Rescue also has had the gall to offer to buy Dr. Tiller's clinic after it was closed. Obviously that isn't going to happen with their current financial situation.

Randall Terry, the founder of the organization, also is responsible for a few scary and violence provoking stunts, including the "Defeat Sotomayor Tour."

The current head of the organization, Troy Newman, who told the AP he hasn't been paid in two months, was at the Tea Party Protests this weekend in DC, according to the organization's website.

1. That frickin' randall terry was stirring things up at one of the town hall meetings, too.
AND he was front-and-center in the whole Terri Schiavo debacle.

I hope they go belly-up!

I'd like to see that Domestic Terrorist Organization starved so small you can drown 'em in a bathtub.

5. Trouble is, it won't affect Terry
He got squeezed out of OR long ago and fronts an offshoot organization now.

2. He's got a new scam now - he's going to Phelps the Obama girls
That's the word. R. Terry is going to show up at the Friends School where the Obama sisters attend to wave pictures of aborted fetuses and scream abuse at them.

4. If by "raptured" you mean seized by the IRS, then maybe so
