Like the weather, you can grumble about it on either side of the issue assuming there is little you can actually dp about it. Unlike weather condi- tions, however, which affects everybody, abortion isn't everybody's concern. It lias been interesting to see Hie various groups become involved with this topic. Perhaps, like day- light saving and fluoridatiori, the no-nos are usually more vocal than the yeses. Or maybe people don't ever actually come out and say yes anymore, but just stop saying no. Local 38 of the Canadian Union of Public Em- ployees recently attempted to circumvent the present abortion law by supporting a resolution calling for special clinics staffed by trained non-doctors who would be "abortion therapists." This Calgary local, while of good intent, had ob- viously not thought out the ramifications of such a clinic. The resolution was eventually thrown out but it should never have come up at all, in our opinion. First, there is always a stigma attached to any type of institution, clinic or school, where people go for special treatment for a special condition. Secondly the proponents of wider grounds for abortion state that there should be a medically ap- proved basis for abortion, and that it should be in the hands of medical men whom we trust with our lives and health every day. If this view ever becomes acceptable in the eyes of the lawmakers, then one's own hospital with one's own physician is the logical answer. Few women want an abortion but if it is consid- ered necessary by a physician then use of non- doctor personnel is a second rate solution. The resolution purported to lake the medical pro- fession down a peg or two for being "rigidly opposed" to abortion and because the doctors administer the law. The medical profession must abide by the laws of the nation (the Criminal Code in this respect) like anyone else. While doctors don't approve of abortion many of them recognize the physical, psychological and social needs which are not included in the present law. It was the men's turn to undergo scrutiny later as an emergency resolution from the women's cau- cus called for CUPE to subscribe to the principles and practices of vasectomy. A motion of non-concurrence was accepted by delegates who felt that sterilization should be the choice of. the individual. And so it should. The woman delegate who opposed abortion on moral grounds as a Roman Catholic perhaps was not aware of the church's stand on sterilization. She said if men don't want babies then they should all get sterilized. As Roman Catholics they could not, nor can any man, obtain a vasectomy just by asking. That fact that an organization the size of CUPE is willing to take a stand on vital issues cannot be counted against them. These were but two of the areas of concern which were presented at the Cal- gary meeting. A 44-page submission from CUPE to the Royal Commission on the status of women should be re- quired reading for all Canadian locals. Obviously working conditions of salary, status, promotion, op- portunity, are not, in CUPE's mind, meant for men alone. They dispel many of the mid-Victorian myths that exist in the labor field concerning female em- ployees, which locals may take as guidelines in con- cern for the over female CUPE members. Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: I am a homosexual who is con- sidering professional help. I have heard from several friends that psychiatry is a waste of time and money. A young man with whom I work told me he had nearly ten years of therapy but it didn't help him become the heterosexual person he wanted to be. Others in our gay group have said the same thing. I have read several books on homosexuality and I am aware that the basic personality pattern of an individual is set by the time he is seven years of age. If this is true, what chance has a homo in his early 20's of turning straight? Has anyone ever' made the switch through psychiatry or psychoanalysis? Several of us will be watching your reply will) Talk DEAR T.: The number of homosexuals who have been made heterosexual through therapy is not impressive. The most optimistic estimate is under four per cent. And in this group are those who were not true homosexuals hi the classic I sense, 1 recommend therapy for homosexuals who ask for counsel because 1 believe it will change them, hut because it might help them handle other personality disorders which often accompany homosexuality. Therapy can help the homosexual accept himself as he is. It can slso relieve him of the anxiety and bitterness which often makes his life unbearable. DEAR ANN LANDERS: My conscience is bothering me Jordy and I used to have a lot of fun. Then he began to confide in me and tell me his innermost feelings. Our dales have turned into psychiatric sessions. Now he openly ver- balizes his hatred for his his fear of his father, his competitiveness with his brother and Ms disgust with his sister. I realize be needs someone to talk to hut. he tells such intimate things J get depressed every time we go out. I've laughingly said ".I'm no and have tried to change the subject. But it's useless. He goes on and on. We are both 17, but I feel like 100 after three hours with him. What should I do? Psyched Out DEAR PSYCHED: Some people don't mind particularly if they feel it serves a useful purpose. Since you DO mind, and the boy's unloading has a depressing effect I on you, case him off your date More Uniform Traffic Laws Agrees Council Of Women WINNIPEG (CP) Traffic laus. movie violence and the royal commission on the status of women were discussed here in the final session of the annual meeting the National Council cf Women of Canada. The council agreed there is a need for uniform traffic laws among the provinces, better identification of drivers on their licences and reciprocal provin- cial laws on traffic violations. It reiterated its concern for the amount of violence, inde- cency and immorality in motion pictures. And it decided that if it gets a federal government grant, it produce a study guide on the report of the royal commis- sion on the status of women. The report has not yet been re- leased. Council spokesmen said the organization, composed of fed- crated societies representing women across Canada, was ap- proached by the federal govern- ment about the study guide. The council has applied for a S4.0SO grant from the state sec- retary's department to cover the cost of printing copies of the guide. It would ask the government to buy 2.000 copies at 50 cents apiece for its own use and would sell Ilio remainder lo the public at. a higher prict1, Mrs. lj. .1. Locu'on of Winni- peg said, however, if the council really wanted to be an action group that instead of producing a guide it. should organize public- meetings for discussion of the royal commission's report.
