JACKSON, Miss. -- Representatives of several organizations gathered at the state Capitol Friday to denounce the activities of an anti-abortion group.
Michelle Colon, president of the Jackson chapter of National Organization for Women, said the news conference was held to show the solidarity of groups opposed to the "tactics" of Operation Save America.
OSA has been protesting in Jackson since July 15. The group burned a copy of the Islamic holy book, the Quran, during a gathering Tuesday at the Making Jesus Real church in Pearl. The group also allegedly attempted to destroy a rainbow flag, a symbol of the gay community.
