photo by Brian Reynolds Buyer again questions Beattys abortion stance Right to Life gives its endorsement to Republican incumbent By JEFF PARROTT Tribune staff writer The question of exactly where Democratic Fifth District congres sional candidate John D Beatty stands on abortion has arisen again in an Indiana Right to Life questionnaire he answered in April Beatry who is trying to unseat Republican incumbent Rep Steve Buyer Nov 8 answered no to the following question Would you vote against any national health bill that would provide payments for abortions with tax dollars or government mandated premiums or that forced insurers to provide coverage for abor tion Health care reform has been pronounced dead in mis Congress but debate over how womens reproductive services are covered in a health plan is expected to heat up on Capitol Hill next year Beattys answer on the question naire combined with his indica tion he would support or laws allowing the termination of life support if a patients quality of lite is no longer deemea desirable has prompted the Indiana Right to Life Political Action Committee to endorse Buyer according to Executive Director Cyndy Martin The fact Buyer is an incumbent and is prolife also contributed to the endorsement she said Martin said she was sur prised and disappointed at Beattys answers in light of the fact he claims to be prolife and has spo ken at Right to Life events in the past Beatty said he was answering a doublebar rel He added if the question was split into two parts as it shouldve been he would have answered no to taxpayer funded abortions but yes to a Beatty Buyer pro plan that forces insurers to vide coverage for abortion He said although he is opposed taxpayerfunded abortions he would support a plan that includes abortion funded by any other means because it is legal according to Roe vs Wade ne said I dont know how much louder I can shout it in his ear Im not in favor of taxpayerfunded abor Beatty said What do I have to do wear a sign around my neck Beattys response in the ques tionnaire brought to light in a press conference at Buyer head quarters marks the second time Beatry has denied he supports tax payerfunded abortions in response to such charges from Buyer In an Aug 16 Beatty cam paign stop in Rensselaer a Right to Life member and Buyer sup porter asked Beatty What are your thoughts on covering abor tion in the health care plan Beatty answered I am not in favor of taxpayerpaid dont want to see it but if it means dont get health care cov erage because of it then Im sorry Ive got to vote for the overall plan although I dont agree with that and would try as hard as I can to get that out or Beattys response then as it is now is that abortion should be dealt with in some way in the plan because it is the law of the Kokomobased Indiana Right to Life has not yet contributed to Buyers campaign and may not Martin said The PAC will meet on Saturday to determine which of the states congressional races it will target she said Regardless of whether it donates to Buyers race Indiana Right to Life will send its newsletter to more than 5th District residents asking them to help campaign for Buyer Martin said Company studies facilities Kokomo Gas Fuel Co said Thursday it will begin soil and groundwater studies next week at its plant facility near Boulevard and Home Avenue to determine if harmful coal tar byproducts are present The site is home to a former manufactured gas plant owned and operated by the utility between 1923 and 1937 James C McFatridge director of gas supply and engineering for Kokomo Gas said the utility does nt have scientific data to accurate ly evaluate whether there are potential risks to public health or the environment But a preliminary study of air samples on the Kokomo Gas and Fuel site last year found no imme diate threat McFatridge said Based on current environmental standards and under certain con ditions some coal tar residues could present a potential risk to public health or the environment Concord Remediation Technologies an engineering firm is performing the soil and groundwater study The project is expected to take two weeks with results available in three to four months The study is part of longterm project launched by NIPSCO Industries parent of Kokomo Gas and Fuel NIPSCO which acquired Kokomo Gas and Fuel in February 1992 as already under taken coal tar studies at seven of 27 sites it owns mostly in north ern Indiana Dan Sullivan an environmental analyst with NIPSCO said none of me site studies to date have uncovered harmful levels of coal tar byproducts Before natural gas was widely available via interstate pipelines and other sources gas was made by heating coal and oil and then stored at various sites The production process often created byproducts and residues primari ly coal tars The tar was sold to commercial companies to be used for road construction waterproof ing and to coat railroad ties and telephone poles During the operation and shut down ofthe plants tar that wasnt sold may have been stored under ground Fresh Sod STOREWIDE INVENTORY REDUCTION SALE Everything
