Operation Rescue purchases building, evicts abortion clinic

Operation Rescue announced Thursday that it has purchased the building that had been leased since 1983 by Central Women's Services. The anti-abortion group has evicted the clinic and plans to renovate the building for use as its headquarters and a memorial display, said Cheryl Sullenger, Operation Rescue spokeswoman. “We're going to convert that building from a place of death to a place where life is protected," Sullenger said. “We feel like there's going to be a little less human misery in the world."
