Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta IETHBRIDGE HERAID Wednesday, DecomWf 11, 1971 Abortions like having toe nails clipped? TORONTO (CPi "A M of still believe an abortion is like having your toe nails cut." YUlh this. Dr. Heather Morris produced a grisly photograph of ,i huge garbage bag filled with linv day's abortions at one Prairie hospital. I denied my scientific training so I could kid myself it i as just another handful of tis- ue, life would lie she ;aid in an interview, then added: 'Once there's a conception, eie are three parties. Each party has rights. Dr. Morris, an cbsletrician and gynecologist at Women's College Hospital, has assisted' in he delivery of more than babies. She is president of the National Alliance for Life, an anti-abbrticn group. HEADS OPPOSITION Gwen Lamlolt is a lawyer and mothor of three. She is chair- man of the Toronto Right to 1 Lile group. I Mrs. Landolt believes that "the unborn child requires the protection of Canadian and therefore, abortion should not be taken out of the Criminal Code. "Abortion is not a private she said. "People I dun't really realize they're tak- I ing a human life." She objects to His arguments that if abortion is taken out of the Criminal Code "the law is then neutral." "Absence of a law doesn't make it neutral. Since the 18th century, an unborn child has had civil rights." She cited a 1920 case in which the Saskatchewan Court of Ap- peal ruled that, even though a cliild was unborn at time of its father's death, the child was still entitled to receive coir.pen- Ration for its father's death. She i said similar judgments have been upheld in Quebec and Manitoba. Dr. Morris is afraid of what might happen next if abortion iK'Comes entirely a personal mailer. "Our society is conlinuously being governed by expediency. What is inconvenient may be eliminated, flow many people will say it is not expedient to have a retarded She also disputes arguments that freer abortion laws would "improve Ihe quality of life." She quoted studies showing that women who have had abor- tions during the 12th week of pregnancy stand a greater chance nf having a premature child the next time, and "any doctor will tell you that the j major cause of mental defects is prematurity." I She also disputes the popular notion that easing abortion laws lowers the number of illegal abortions. "Most people who are having abortions don't want anyone to know. Some women don't even want their husbands to know, and even the minimum amount of red tape is still just too much fo' the wonjan who thinks 'I mast get it done now.' Mrs. Landolt said there is no such thing as an unwanted child. "The lisLs are long of parents who are searching to adopt a child and there just aren't that many available." What about the mental health of the mother? Dr. Morris said having an abortion is more likely to com- pound a woman's emotional problems, if not during the pregnancy, then later when she realizes what she Ivas done. "Suicide among pregnant women is actually very she said. "On a short-term basis, abortion gels rid of teh child, but tlie long-term effects, we just don't know." Looking into the future, Dr. Morris said: "We are not too far from the time when scientists will be able to selectively create partic- ular breeds of human beings with particular qualities. We must this whole question now and protect Uie sanctity of life." "We believe the utmost re- spect is due to human life human life starts at concep- Dr. Mbrris said.
