Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - August 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta August 21, 1874-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD-5 Church reviews abortion stand Night in jail Young hostellers relax in the boys' dormitory in the renovated corridors of the old Carleton County Jail. The unique youth hostel is the only one in Ottawa open the year round. STILL SELLING FOR LESS STERN'S CUT-RATE FURNITURE 314 3rd St. S. Phone 327-3024 By R. J. ANDERSON GUELPH, Ont. (CP) The United Church of Canada de- cided Tuesday night to take a second look at its position on abortion, which it now condones for social and economic reasons. It does not support abortion on demand. The general council, highest court of the church, took that position in 1971 and reaffirmed it in 1972. But the moral questions involved trouble churchmen and seven resolutions from as many conferences demanded that the 26th general council re- verse that stand. A special committee was set up which recommended that the council appoint a committee to review the position of the church and to report to a 27th general council, due to convene in 1976 or 1977. The committee's report was adopted after lengthy debate during which many commis- sioners expressed their beliefs that the church was wrong. One commissioner from the Maritimes cried out: "The poor do not want abortion. The people who really want their children are the poor. They say, 'Let them have life'." The council, endorsing a re- port from the division of mis- sion in Canada, also put the Bicycle seats check set OTTAWA (CP) The federal consumer affairs department and the Canadian Medical Association both plan to examine the safety of extra seats which allow bicycling parents to transport their children. Both organizations say they have received no specific complaints about the seats. But the consumer affairs department's product safety branch had received a letter pointing out potential dangers of extra seats from Dr. Earl Cooperman, an Ottawa physician. United Church on record as supporting the boycott of grapes and lettuce from California and Arizona. The executive of the division said: "North American migrant and seasonal farm laborers continue to be victimized by low wages, broken health, child labor, sporadic schooling and squalid housing." The farm workers, repre- sented by the United Farm Workers of America are seeking to negotiate a new union contract with the fruit and vegetable growers of the two states. They say strikes have failed and they now advocate an international boycott of farm produce from those areas. The boycott has 'received wide support from church groups in Canada. The division, largest of five departments of the church, supports the group as does the Maritime conference. However, the United Church had not previously given its official support to the movement. Earlier, last-ditch attempts to change the plan of union that some day may unite three Protestant denominations into one church were turned back and the commissioners shied away from making an immediate decision on how go about it. Five resolutions in as many conferences are before this council and most seek to make changes in the plan, accepted in principle last year by the national executives of the participating churches. Since 1943, the United Church has discussed with the Anglican Church of Canada how the two denominations could reconcile differences in doctrine and practice of worship and come together into one huge church of about 3.5 million members and adherents. In the last decade, several plans have been hammered out in slow-paced negotiations. A final will not go be- fore the membership of the churches until perhaps more than requests for revisions of dioceses and presbyteries. Before the general council Tuesday was a report by a special committee set up to recommend voting procedures. It lumped five resolutions called one eight- point resolution and debate on this was scheduled for later in the day, then debate was put off until Thursday to give the commissioners more time to study the proposal. Doubts as to the wisdom of proceeding further with church union are widely prevalent in the Anglican church and only a little less so in the United Church. MOVE RESOLUTION This was evident in remarks by some commissioners who sought to move a resolution that would have revised the plan of union drastically. This was not acceptable to national executive which said no further major revisions could be made. Rev. Robert Craig, chairman of the committee on joint union and mission which is getting the plan along this tortuous path, told the commissioners: "The last thing we want is a flood of requests for revision. That would put us back 10 years. "It is a good plan of union, a revised document that has been before all the churches. It is the best plan produced so far. "Anglican dioceses across the country have grave doubts. So have we." The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is one of the participating churches and Rev. Robert Le- land of that denomination, speaking as a paternal delegate to the council, said: "It is time we come to grips with it." The general synod of the Anglican church is to consider the plan early in 1975. The special committee recommends that this council meet in adjourned session in June. 1975. after the executives of the three churches meet jointly in February, "to accomplish any necessary revisions." A two-thirds majority vote at all levels of the churches would be required to put the plan into effect. The new church would be named Church of Christ in Canada. In other submissions to council, the department of church in society asked commissioners: "Hasn't the time come to have done with many of the bits and pieces of social The paper said the federal government disclosed a plan to extend social security, the various propositions to be considered by the welfare ministers of the provinces with concerned groups making contributions to the discussion. The department's response is termed "somewhat critical but hopefully constructive." "We concur that the present social security system in Can- ada is one of the most advanced in the Western world. Our hope is that in recognizing this, we will not be lulled into contentment with the status quo but be spurred to grapple with human need."
