Federal law stales that an abortion may bo performed only if the health of the moth- er is at stake. Social and eco- nomic reasons arc not consid- ered; neither ore cases of po- tential deformity in the child. The spokesman said Iherc not a great deal of abor- tions performed in this area, on the average about 70 or WJ annually. "The (lumbers liere arc quite small considering the population, compared other cities in and Canada." difference is (lint In Lclhbridgc, the number of unmarried women .seeking abortions is about equal to the number of married women, while in moat other centres there arc more married than single women seeking abor- tions, he said. lie attributed this to the fact tliat "younger women are gencraly wLser, and have less hangups about contraception; they simply don't get preg- nant as often." "IjClhbridge is a well-doc- tored he said.

"Almost all of the unwant- ed children showed psycholo- gical and emotional ill health, with a greater tendency to- wards vandalism and acts of viol en ce. The comparison of percentages was The same hole's for the mother, he said- "There is no question alwut the fact that the physical health of the pregnant woman is harmed when her mental health is not good. "Her instability could lead to suicide or a damaging il- legal abortion, or in most cases she just becomes so run down and ill that siie faIIs prey to other di.sea.scs." He said many abortions arc done at the request and ad- vice of a psychiatrist. "He must assess compare Uic dangers of pregnancy and of abortion for the individual patient." "The risk of a simple D and C (dilation and curettage) is minimal, while in some cases, a pregnany itself can be quite serious." He said very few women who come requesting abor- tions are turned, down. The reason for refusal is generally thai the psychia- trist or doctor determines through counselling that the woman, would suffer more from a guilt complex which would foltow the operation than from continuing lo carry the baby. Another reason for refusal would be the discovery lhat termination of pregn a n cy would cause more harm than, its continuation "This is rare in physical terms."
