MANILA (AP) - A Jesuit group in the Pliilin>iiie3 has accepted an $81,992 grant from the United States to promote birth control in Asia. The move connies at a time when Roman Catholic bishops here have been circulating a pastoral letter assailing a campaign to persuade couples to use ciMitraceptive devices. The bishops’ stand is in line with Pope Paul’s reaffirmation In 1968 of the church’s ban on the use of contraceptives. Rev. James B. Reuter, secretary of the Jesuits Engaged in Social Communications in East Asia, or Jescomea, said, however, the two grows are not Decessarily in confUct. "We are tr^ng to promote family planning on a voluntary basis in an effort to head off the possibility of involuntary sterilization which IS objectionable to us,” said Fattier Reuter. He will direct the program, financed by the grant from Family Planning International Assistance, the international division of the Plann' ed Parenthood Federation of America, Jescomea, which will conduct the project throughout East Asia, said its “unifying goal will to influence clerical and lay leaders in each country and to move family planning from its present position as an activity on the periphery of the church into the mainstream of Catholic action.” In the pastoral letter, the Bishops Conference of the Philippines said that while the church did not want "imlim-ited procreation of children... we are worried about the current massive campaign to talk couples into accepting a number of mechanical and chemical contraceptives which are but externa! means of control.” “We deplore the fact that all these methods depend on Star-gazing SANTIAGO (Reuter) - A Chilean woman clairvoyant, Yolande Sultana Halabi, who claims to have forecast the death of former president Lyndon Johnson and the reelection of President Nixon, has predicted that Secretary of State Henry Kissinger will marry a very attractive and well-known woman, and that a great scandal will rock the British Royat Family. UNITED NATIONS (AP) -A report by Helvi Sipila of Finland, the top woman in the United Nations secretariat, says countries that keep people from getting family-planning information and supplies “are infringing on the exercise of basic human rights ” Laws that have that effect should' be repealed, the report says, and “new laws guaran-teemg access to all relevant information, education and services introduced and enforced ” The state) it contends, should '’enable its citizens to control their reproductive behavior as safely, effectively and efficiently as possible" by ensuring them access to “a full range of information, education, advice and family planning services—including, as appropriate, contraception, abortion and voluntary sterilization ” Mrs. Sir\:3 g,-.' ; job ot draftim; ’k rifort from the UN    lie and Social Cou!1' !> :r May, 1968. She guided t. to completion since Sccrctary-General Kurt Waldheim on Sept. 1, 1972, named her the first woman UN assistant secretary-general. The Study on the Interrelationship of the Status of Women and Family Planning, as it is called, stresaes that the belter educated woman are, the more likely they are to practise family plahning. the UN Commission on the something outside man or on some external artificial control.” Although the Philippines population is at least 80 per cent Roman Catholic, the government, backed by the U.S. Agency for International Development, the World Bank and private agencies such as the Ford Foundation, has maintained me of the largest birth control programs in the world The population, estimated now at 43 million, is growing at about 3.3 per cent annually, a rate unmatched anywhere in Asia except in Pakistan. The bishops also showed worry about possible forced sterilization. Their letter said: “There has been adopted as the pnncipal solution to the population problem massive conception control through the artificial contraceptive approach. “This approach has followed a common pattern of development in countries where it has been espoused. 'The patterns show an escalation from the less radical to the more radical measures of sterilization and abortion.” The letter added. “Only recently, the department of justice has removed all legal impediment to contraceptive sterilization by officially granting it legal clearance The contraceptive mentality . also follows a movement from the voluntary towards the compulsory." The letter blamed affluent societies for scarcities which have inspired birth control programs. “When a people constituting six per cent of the world’s population consumes 40 per cent of its goods, the scarcity suffered by the 94 per cent is not ■The Herald' Family due to their large number.... “When confronted with a family that is unable to care for the children, the accusing finger should not always be pointed at the family. “When the structure of the community encourages affluence of a few at the expense of the many, destitute famibes are victims rather than culprits. And what is true of families is also true of larger communities, of regions and of nations.” The program will use films, television, radio and pamphlets in trying to affect attitudes among church leaders in the Philippines. Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Sri Lanlca, Thailand and Vietnam Although the project proposal makes no mention of methods of family planning, one of the conditians of the grant requires Jescomea to report on “the amounts of contraceptives by type and quantity used and on hand at the end of each quarter." Family planning endorsed by UN Status of Women will Uke it up at a three-week session starting here today as one point on a broad agenda. Without mentioning Pope Paul’s ban on artificial birth control for Roman Catholics, the report attacks “particular groups” that discourage family planning. “If governments do not have the sovereign right to deny individuals the right to determine freely the number and spacing of their children,” it says, “neither do particular groups who may have an interest ... in restricting the access of their members or of other groups of persons to information, education or services permitting them to govern their own reproductive behavior," Clogs unsafe BLACKWATER.
