Generation Rescue is a not-for-profit anti-vaccine organization, run by anti-vaccine nut-for-profit Jenny McCarthy. According to their website, they are:

Dedicated to recovery for children with autism spectrum disorders by providing guidance and support for medical treatment to directly improve the child’s quality of life for all families in need.

Contrary to their own beliefs, there is enough evidence to suggest that they are doing the opposite to improving quality of life by convincing people to turn away from evidence based medicine.[1][2]

They bear no relation to Operation Rescue, the extreme anti-abortion group.
