Catholics oppose church over abortion By JOY ELLIOTT NEW YORK (Reuter) - A group of Catholics opposing their church's traditional stand against contraception and aborton is working to repeal all United States laws regulating birth control. Patricia Fogariy McQuillan, a practising Catholic, founded the group three months ago and gave it the name of "Catholics for the elimination of all restrictive abortion and contraception laws." Mrs. McQuillan, the separated mother of a 20-year-old daughter, says, "As Catholics, we believe that abortion and contraception are strictly personal conscience and medical matters-private issues-and the state should be silent and neutral in this regard." A Jan. 22 U.S. Suoreme Court decision said state legislators could forbid abortions in the last 10 weeks of pregnancy, "except where it is necessary to preserve the (mother's) life or health."- But that is not enough, Mrs. McQuillan says. "That still leaves the/last 10 weeks for the state to do its meddling. We denounce the Independent role sought for women CALGARY (CP) - There must be an end to women's dependence on men and to the guilt women harbor when they avoid their "biological destiny," Adriemie Clarkson said here. She told a largely female audience attending the Calgary Teachers' Convention women worry about whether they are good mothers, particularly if they are working mothers.

If you have an extremely good cMld, you are often accused of having bound him to you in an inescapable fixation." The belief that reproduction i$ women's prime function has begun to change with the advent of contraceptive devices, the novelist and hostess of the CBC television program Take SO said. But the guilt remain-ed it a woman avoided the role of mother. Mrs. Clarkson said there must be an economic recognition of women's right to work. They must receive equal pay for equal work with men. ' Dependence breeds hostility because the dependent partner cannot return the same kind of love provided by her opposite, she said. "A dependent r e 1 a tionship in many ways is much easier though. Women treated like charming domestic pets can live very comfortable lives - just look at the Pekinese and tho Dachshund." Society must help women loosen the bonds cf dependency by "reorganising itself so that everyo7ie can work outside the home who wacts to without each one cf us having to b'3 a bcusekEener. concept that a woman's reproductive system belongs to the state at any time and she must be accountable as a criminal under any condition of pregnrncy." WOULD WIDEN SALE In addition, she advocates repealing New York laws confining contraceptive sales to drug stores and to persons over 16 and suggests placing vending machines containing prophylactics in men's rooms. Asked how she reconciles her stand with her Catholicism, Mrs. McQuillan, a board member of the feminist National Organization of Women (NOW), said women have no say in formulating church regulations. "Our Catholic Church still maintains an oppressive, discriminatory and sexist cede of laws regarding women, which is not denied, and yet forbids all women any representation on its policy-making and canonical interpretative bodies," she said. As a consequence, while laws agaiist abortion may have protected the lives of pregnant women "in earlier days of biological and medical ignorance," women could not choose to change the regulations as medical research made the operation safer, she said. The group's first public meeting brought its membership up to nearly 1,090, including a few nuns from the Sisters of Mercy, Sisters of Charity, the Order of St. Ursula and the Marymount Sisters, Mrs. McQuillan said. It a'so brought out the anti-abortion forces of the interdenominational Right to Life Group, which has been lobbying in A!bany, New York state's capital, for strict anti-abortion laws, she recalled. "Some people called us heretics and shouted,-'You're not Catholics'," she laughed, "but I told them I was as much as Catholic as they were." ,A Calendar Ofdlocat ^J4appenln^s The Chinook Pensioners and Senior Citizens Organization, affiliated with the provincial and national organization, will meet Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in the aU-purpose room of the civic centre.

Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: Do you know how many little lives you might save if you informed your millions of readers that they need not stand by helpless while neighbors and relatives beat and neglect and abuse their children? Many cities have ordinances and laws to protect children against cruelty which is, of course, the result of sick minds. For God's sake, help those kids. Here are the proper steps: (1) Take the child immediately to an impartial doctor or to a hospital for examina-tio'n. Do not select your family doctor or a doctor who is a relative or personal friend. (2) If, after examination, the doctor says the child has been abused or criminally neglected, call a police officer and have the courage to sign a complaint if you are asked to do so. (3) If the child is of school age, take Aim Landers' advice. A teacher can be an excellent witness. Teachers see these children day after day and they will know if the younsger has frequent bruises, cuts, or blackened eyes. DEAR ANN LANDERS: Our son is 20, and to use an expression that will surely date me, he is tall, dark and handsome. The problem is insignificant compared to many you receive, but it has toned our dinner table conversation into a debating society. Resolved; should Jim grow a beard?'His girl says "No!" His older brother says "Yes!" His dad says, "It would look terrible. You have enough DEAR ANN LANDERS: No big deal, but something that needs settling. I have pierced ears. My girlfriend had her ears pierced a few months ago. We decided to exchange earrings.- Mom says this is not sanitary. She claims I might get an infection because these earrings go through the flash. Is this true or false? -Delia DEAR DELL A: The earrings do not go through the flesh, they go through a hole which has healed. No problem, unless, of course, the These days so many people are afraid to become involved. They say it is dangerous to poke your nose into other people's business. Please, Ann, tell them a helpless child is everybody's business. - L.A. DEAR L.A.: Bless you for your letter. Often people need encouragement to follow their better instincts. You have given it and I thank you. * �* * DEAR ANN LANDERS: My brother and I are 14 and 12 years old. Mom died three months8,ago and it was a terrible shock to everybody. She was sick only a couple of weeks and -we were sure she would be O.K. Everyone has been awfully nice to us and we are getting a'ong pretty good. The problem is that Dad loses his temper, yells a lot and gets mad for no reason. He never used to be that way. What can we do? - E. and J. DEAR E. AND, J.: Nobody gets mad "for no reason." In your dad's case he is probably unhappy, lonely, frustrated and missing your mother. The best thing you can do is try to understand. Time is a great healer. hair as it is."
