Protests Apartment Attack By The Associated Press BEIJING The US Embassy filed a protest today over what it called a premeditated army attack on the apartments of American diplomats and other foreigners two days after clearing the city center of student protesters The move was likely to further worsen relations already made tense by US criticism of Chinas violent suppression of the prode mocracy movement Also today two Taiwanese re porters said a colleague was taken away by security forces after he reportedly met with fugitive stu dent leader Wang Dan The report ers said they feared Wang also was arrested US Embassy spokesman Sheri dan Bell said Embassy Charge dAffaires Raymond Burghardt de livered the note of protest about the shooting incident to the For eign Ministry which did

More Control On Abortions By The Associated Press WASHINGTON The Supreme Court today cut back signifi cantly womens constitutional right to abortion giving states far greater power to limit abortions The court ruling on one of the most contentious issues of the decade stopped short of reversing its 1973 decision legalizing abortion In splintered voting the justices restored key provisions of a Missouri law that a lower court had invalidated for unduly interfering with womens constitutional right to abortion Todays ruling is a significant setback for abortion rights advocates because other states now may follow Missouris lead SC Abortion Poll1B This Supreme Courts decision is a major setback for wom en said Judith Lichtman president of the Womens Legal Defense Fund The decision is an open invitation for anti choice groups to bring more cases and for state legislatures to pass antichoice legislation which the court can use to overturn Roe v Wade But a majority of the justices said they were unwilling in this case to overturn or even reconsider the courts landmark 16yearold decision in Roe vs Wade The court also said it will review in its next term which begins next October two additional abortion cases in which Roe vs Wade is under attack It chips away There will be three more cases next fall National Organization for Women president Molly Yard said They will chip away some more Pretty soon nothing much will be left for a woman in controlling her reproductive fife This is war against women she said In it the court said women have a constitutional right based on their right to privacy to seek and obtain abortions The Roe vs Wade ruling said a womans decision to have an abortion during the first three months of pregnancy must be left to her and her doctor It said states may regulate abortions during the second trimester only to protect the womans health and may take steps to protect fetal life in the third trimester State authority to regulate abortions after the first trimester was not made absolute however In another significant ruling the Supreme Court said some governmentsponsored religious displays are permissible as long as they do not have the effect of promoting or endorsing religious beliefs By a 54 vote the court said displaying a Christmas nativity scene inside the Allegheny County Courthouse in Pittsburgh violates constitutionally required separation of church and state because it appears to endorse Christian principles Bush Gets An Early Start On July 4th Celebration Keep The Fun In Fireworks By The Associated Press WASHINGTON If this year has a typical Independence Day thousands of Americans will finish their celebration at hospital emergency rooms being treated for fireworks injuries Despite laws banning or restricting fireworks in most states as many as 10000 people require medical care for fireworks injuries every year a large share on the Fourth of July according to the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission Last year children received more than half of all fireworks injuries with eye damage a particularly severe prob lem according to Frank J Carlomagno of the Virginia chapter of the National Society to Prevent Blindness No fireworks are safe in childrens hands Even sparklers can cause burns to the eye and can easily ignite cloth ing said Carlomagno A prime factor in children being hurt by fireworks is lack of adequate adult supervision he said The federal safety agency and the American Pyrotechnics Association join in stressing the need for adult su pervision whenever fireworks are used Do not allow younger children to play with fireworks under any circum stances warns the Consumer Product Safety Commission Children do not realize the potential danger and if an accident does occur they do not know how to react correctly the commission said If older children are allowed to use fireworks adult supervision is still needed Running and other horseplay Please See KEEP Page 7A By The
