Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 28, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, January 28, 1975 THC I.ETHHRIDGE HERALD 17 have abortions Debate raging in N.Z. WELLINGTON (Reuter) Vigorous debate over whether New Zealand's abortion law should be liberalized has done little to prevent thousands of women here from having abortions each year. The controversy over changing the law to allow abortion on demand, in line with many other western countries, suddenly flared last September when the police and government entered the fray. Police raided New Zealand's only private abor- tion clinic to confiscate 500 confidential files and photograph the rooms and equipment, after receiving a complaint. This was followed by introduction of a-bill in Parliament seeking to restrict abortions to public hospitals. Since the raid, the clinic, op- erating on a non-profit basis, has been providing abortions for 40 women a week while po- lice considered whether to prosecute. The law provides up to 14 years imprisonment for anyone carrying out an abor- tion unless it is necessary to preserve the life of the mother. The medical director of the clinic, Dr. Rex Hunton, is adamant that all abortions carried out at the centre com- ply with the law. He said 100 of the 500 women counselled in the clinic's first four months had been refused abortion and added that the majority of these had since had abortions elsewhere. Hunton said the clinic has the support of nearly 300 doc- tors as well as the College of Psychiatrists, the Association of General Practitioners and the Association of Psychologists. There has been strong op- position to private clinics from anti-abortionists who, led by the Society for the Protection of the Unborn Child recently out numbered pro abortionists marching on the Parliament Buildings in Wellington. Further controversy was provoked when Ruth Kirk, the wife of the late prime minister, Norman Kirk, strongly condemned abortion and became patron of the society. Meanwhile the bill seeking to outlaw private hospitals carrying out abortions, which was introduced by a member of the ruling Labor party, Dr. Gerald Wall, is still being con- sidered by government.

Adopted woman finds past in a hometown phone book NORWICH, Conn. (AP) Barbara Faulkner found her past in the phone book. After a 12-year search she stumbled upon her natural mother and her brothers and sisters right in her own town. Barbara grew up in New Haven, the adopted daughter of Mr. and Mrs." Herbert Ives Sr. She found out she was adopted at the age of 9 when she ran home and asked: "Mommy, what's an adop- tion? The kids were talking about it." Her mother ex- plained it to her after dinner Not until she was 19 did she see papers with her original name, Sharon Lynn. "But what stunned me was that there were five other chil- dren. I wondered what they looked like. I wondered how .many were brothers, how many were sisters. I won- dered if they looked like me or had feelings like I had." Although she knew she was born in a car on a California highway, she knew her natu- ral mother had returned to New Haven. She concentrated her search there and contin- ued it after her marriage to Leroy Faulkner. But it was in vain until the couple and their four children moved to Nor- wich to be closer to Leroy's job. While visiting with new neighbors Mrs. Faulkner flipped through a telephone directory. "We were just get- ting acquainted, and as I joked that I was born on a California highway this name popped right out at me." It was her mother's unusual first name and middle initial. She thought, "What will I do with this name? Shall I call and say, 'Hi. This is Sharon. You left me on a highway in California. Are you coming back for me? Should I joke about it? Should I With the aid of her hus- band, they tracked down one of her natural brothers living in the Norwich area. Ten min- utes later he was knocking at Mrs. Faulkner's door. "It had been almost 30 years and he said he didn't want to wait another day. I showed him the papers I had and he showed me a picture of his mother." Both brothers visited her the next night and explained that whenever they had asked about a "little girl" their mother put them off. After meeting with her nat- ural mother, Barbara learned that she was put up for adop- tion because her mother had to work. Two of her brothers had also been placed in an adoption centre but had been taken out when the mother could afford to care for them. "I don't condemn her. She had to; work and was going to be divorced. She had to ac- cept anything." "Being adopted never both- ered said Barbara, "be- cause a real mother and fa- ther are the ones who care for you, loye you, are there when you need them, and un- derstand when you need un- I had all that." But she urged parents al- ways to tell the truth to adopted children. "It saves real, deep trouble."

Dear Ann Landers: My hus- band proudly proclaims himself as "one whom Ann Landers would call a 'controlled' alcoholic." Well, I am willing to bet my last buck you never made any such statement because I don't think there is such a thing. What Harry considers "control" is that he never touches a drop until he gets home from work. He also brags that he has never miss- ed a day at the office because of a hangover. He says he can quit drinking when he feels he has had enough. And he can. But not EVERYTHING is under control. He must have a drink the minute he steps in- side the door. He can consume approximately a half a fifth of 90-proof stuff straight in a single evening. Now for the "problem." Harry is a highly paid professional, loves his work, is attractive and well-liked, generous and thoughtful when he's sober. The minute he starts to guzzle he becomes argumentative, sarcastic, paranoid and the least little thing sets him off. He talks non-stop mostly nonsense and repeats himself until I could scream. He never listens to one word anyone says. What should I do? Please don't suggest A.A., a physician, religion or counselling. He insists he is a "controlled drinker" and therefore has no problem. How about some vital statistics that might scare him into sobriety? A Desperate Wife Dear Wife: Your husband will not be scared into sobrie- ty by statistics or anything else. He is a drunk and "controlled" is just a word he made up to reduce the stigma. An alcoholic should not have one drop of liquor, wine or beer. Until your husband is willing to accept that theory he will be a victim of the bottle. Since you obviously plan on sticking with him, I'd like to suggest Al-Anon. It's an organization for people who have' opted to live with drunks. Write for infor- mation. It could do YOU a great deal of good, and him, as well. Dear Ann Landers: Remember your advice, "Don't marry the best-looking fellow in school, the terrific dancer, the guy with all the personality or the star It was excellent and I agree but why didn't you go on and advise those girls to stick with their solid, balding, unspectacular guys instead of grabbing our husbands for the evening and leaving us strand- ed with the solid citizen who is a Rock of Gibraltar in a crisis but can't dance worth a damn? My husband has his faults, but he is great looking and a terrific dancer. Whenever we go where there's music I get .cut in on left and right by gals whose husbands have two left feet. They say, "You have Jerry all the time I'm left standing on the floor like a fool. My husband is flattered out of his mind and wouldn't dream of rebuffing them. If you print this letter I promise to clip it out and carry it in my even jng bag so I can hand it to the next gal who horns in. Twinkle Toes Who Sits Out The Beit Number! Dear Twink: O.K., clip it out. But I can't imagine a dame stopping to read a column on the dance floor. What you need is Jerry's co- operation. Maybe if you show it to HIM and tell him you wrote it, THAT might help.
