Abortion-Rights Groups Denounce Tactics Of Operation Save America

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.

Other groups at the Capitol included Radical Women, Unity Mississippi, Temple Beth Israel, the Mississippi Gay and Lesbian Alliance and the Feminist Majority Foundation.

The abortion-rights groups will hold a rally Saturday at the Capitol.
