Overburdened financially by fines, Operation Rescue says it plans to close its national headquarters here.
However, Randall A. Terry, head of the pro-life group, said it would continue to conduct sit-ins at abortion clinics and stage rallies.
Terry would not comment on how the organization will be run once the office closes Dec. 31 and its four staff members are laid off. He said it could hinder the group's "underground operation."
U.S. District Judge Louis Oberdorfer levied $60,000 in fines against Operation Rescue and Project Rescue, a Washington-based chapter of Terry's group, in October for violating permanent injunctions preventing them from blocking abortion clinics.
