Offered to Abortion Whistleblowers
Operation Rescue launches the Abortion Whistleblower campaign,
seeking information that leads to the arrest and conviction of
abortionists who are breaking the law
Operation Rescue announced today that it is offering a $10,000 reward
for information leading to the arrest and conviction of abortionists
who are breaking the law.
The campaign, known as Abortion Whistleblowers, is encouraging abortion
clinic workers and others to come forward and tell what they know about
abortion clinic abuses.
The Abortion Whistleblowers campaign will include a series of ads on
the radio and on sites like Craig's List, Facebook,

mailings to each abortion clinic in the nation encouraging workers
to come forward.

died injuries so horrific that the abortionist fled the country fearing
murder charges. His dangerous abortion clinic closed.
Thirty-five women were involved in bringing 65 charges sexual abuse
against Phoenix abortionist Brian Finkle. Seventy additional women came
forward but were not part of the prosecution. Finkle, who was
responsible for 20% of all abortions done in Arizona, is currently
serving 35 years in prison for his crimes.
"We have yet to find an abortion clinic that complies with all laws,"
said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. "We are encouraging clinic
workers, former abortion patients, or anyone else who has knowledge
that crimes have committed been at abortion clinics to contact us
immediately. Their information could literally save lives and earn them
a $10,000 reward."
