Mila Means plan of opening an abortion clinic is a long shot

The Wichita Eagle profiles Kansas abortionist-in-training Mila Means and interviewed her about her hopes of opening an abortion clinic in Wichita. Here's what I got from the story:

Her chances of opening an abortion clinic are slim to none. Operation Rescue's Troy Newman puts her chances at less than 30%. I think he's being extremely generous. Why?

Mila Means is broke. When she divorced her first husband, she was left with $100,00 in debt. She pays her ex-husband alimony. She'll be paying $1,500 a month to her former practice (which she left) for 8 more years.

Her plan to open an abortion clinic includes trying to raise $800,000-$1,000,000 via a yet unformed non-profit to buy a clinic and equipment. She wants to open a clinic in 12 to 18 months. Unless Warren Buffett (or some other super rich pro-abort) is about to throw a cool mill her way, I don't see she could ever raise that much money.

After reading this article, I'm almost wondering if Means is just hoping to fool enough ardent pro-choicers into donating money to her so she can eek by.
