Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 8, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 18 THI lEIHBRIOGf HERALD Wcrfnejdoy, Worth 8, 1C71 Abortion under discussion at family planning meet rra OTTAWA (CT1 Many Octc- Uatcs didn't like it, but ihc first national family planning confer- ence which ended here recently decided th.it ahorlion shouUl be included among birth control j measures. By a vote of 70 to 62, dele- gates decided to leave tlie word abortion in a composite recom- mendation that "family plan- ning policy, programs and serv- ices" should encompass the full range of birth control methods, sterilization vnscctomy a n d lulinl llgation, abortion, fertil- ily and genetics M a n y seemed annoyed at being placed in judgment on abortion, because fedora! organ- izers had told them the confer- ence was not concerned with the issue. However some delegates, in- cluding a number of prominent physicians, argued that an all- encompassing discus s i o n on compromising when you have con- flicting opinions. FRAME STYLES FROM AROUND-THE- WORLD family planning couldn't ex- clude iioortion, even if it va-ro regarded as a last-resort mea- sure in exceptional cases. This was one of 22 recommen- dations approved after four' days of discussions. If accepted, even in part by the sponsoring federal government, they will require a massive outlay of funds. The federal health depart- ment organized the conference invited representatives of government, social agencies, voluntary groups and commun- ity spend four days discussing what should be done in the family planning field. The press was excluded from many of the discussions which and ironically, dealt with the need to make greater use of the media more in telling Canadians about family p I a li- ning services. The results of the closed-door discussions were boiled down by a central drafting committee which turned out the 22 resolu- tions. Generally, they are aim- ed at informing Canatl i a n s about family planning, and pro- viding facilities so eacli family can freely choose to decide on its size. It was agreed (hat informa- tion and services should bo available to every Canadian in- dividual, and to achieve this there must bo far greater et- forst on the part of government. AH levels of government must earmark more money for fam- ily planning, the subject should be taught in schools, all hospi- tals should have family plan- ning clinics, and there should bo community units established to assist families or individuals. Delegates attending the closed discussions said the provincial governments were unmercifully hammered for their failure to provide leadership, or money, for family planning. The med cal profession also took its lumps for not doing more. Dr. Robert Tooley, director of the health department's family planning program, said the rec- ommendations "rather confirm what the federal government had in mind all along." But they would have to he studied more carefully before a full as- sessment could be made. Ann Landers DEAR ANN' LANDERS: Pler.se print this letter, n could help ;i reader who one day might be faced with a breast removal. I wish someone had prepared me for the expe- rience. I was in my recently divorced, and positive that no man could possibly want a woman hart one breast removed. Buying new clothes was torture. The saleswomen tried to pretend they didn't mlice, but I knew better. Sharing a room with another woman on a trip was always embar- rassing. But Uie most difficult thing to face was the fear that a man might fall in love with me and then be horrified to discover the mutilation. There seemed to be only one solution. Whenever 1 met a man I thought I might care for, I told him on the second or third dale about my surgery. It was agony but I forced myself to come right out with it. I was handled the subject wilh a touch of humor. That was seven men ago. Believe it or not, not a single man dropped me. It simply didn't matter. I married nnmber seven. We have a great mutual interests, and a lively sex li.'e. I couldn't be happier. I hope this letter will give heart to women who, like myself, thought this kind of operation would render them unsuitable for romance and marriage. I'm ashamed of the way I underestimated Wife. DEAR A. W.: Thank you for writing. Thousands of women have experienced mastectomy have had the same ex- perience. A man to whom this surgery would make a differ- ence is not worth having. DEAR ANN LANDERS: If what 1 am about to say sounds insane please bear with me. I'm clutching at straws. This might not be feasible, or even legal but maybe it's the an- swer. My has had stomach trouble since he was nine years old. Roy is 16 now anil it has gotten progressively worse. Maybe hypnotism is the answer. Medical doctors haven't done him one bit of good. The poor kid has been through every test imaginable and has tried all kinds of medicine and diets. It's a known fact that people who are sensitive and conscien- tious are susceptible to stomach trouble. If they could be made to relax, couldn't that be the key? How do I find a hypnotist who is qualified for medical treatment? How much do they charge? Tlease guide me Andrea of Iron Mt. Alich. DEAR ANDREA: I'm not about to guide you to a hypno- tist for stomach trouble. Didn't one of those medical doctors suggest that perhaps the boy has an emotional problem? If notj I am suggesting it. Now you can take it from there. Please send inquiries and requests to Landers Reader- mail Department, Chicago Sun Times-Daily News, 401 North Wabasli Ave., Chicago, 111. 60611. MRS.
