FEC Dismisses Operation Rescue's Lawsuit

The Federal Election Commission has dismissed an anti-abortion group’s complaint alleging that an abortion rights political action committee helped finance the operations of a new clinic in Wichita.

The political action committee, Trust Women, announced Thursday it received a notice from the FEC this week dismissing the complaint filed last year by Operation Rescue.

The Trust Women Foundation opened a clinic last year in the late Doctor George Tiller’s former medical building.

The separate Trust Women PAC disbanded in May. Operation Rescue alleged that the PAC was improperly funding the clinic's operations. The PAC acknowledged small loans to the clinic.

The FEC said loans from the PAC to the clinic would not be illegal.
