Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta WMnttfey, March t4,1fn -THE1ITHMID0IHERALD -1� fWe must help ourselves? Rose Yellowfeet tells women EDMONTON (CP) - Native people must do things for themselves if they want to develop, the southern vice-president of the Voice of Alberta Native Women's Society said here. B.C. RNs support wider abortion law VANCOUVER (CP) - The Registered Nurses' Association of British Columbia said it supports liberalization of abortion legislation in Canada so that the final decision about abortion can be made between a woman and her doctor. The Association, in a position paper on abortion, also supports a nurse's right to abstain from participatng in the nursing care of patients seeking, having or recovering from a therapeutic abortion except in emergency cases. While the Association believes that the provision of competent nursing care for patients having therapeutic abortions is the responsibility of the nursing profession, it also recognizes that nurses, as individuals, hold certain moral, religious or ethical beliefs about abortion and may in good conscience be compelled to refuse involvement, says the paper. Health facilities, says the Association, should make plans for staffing with personnel willing and competent to care for The RNABC also urges federally supported research programs on contraception and dissemination of birth control information because it believes abortion should' not replace other methods of birth control. Rose Yellowfeet of Leth-bridge was addressing delegates to the first national conference of Native Women. "This is where we went wrong - not doing things for ourselves," she said. "Indian affairs and the 'Great White Fathers' have done everything for us. They have given us rations when they thought we were hungry, given us clothing; but just enough so we wouldn't complain. "And we sat there and never said anything. "We have to pull up our socks and start tearing to walk." As women, she said, the delegates should do something about poverty and should attempt to improve the education of native people. "The first step is to learn what we are, what we can do and then how to do it. "The importance of getting to know one another, as we are doing at this conference, is going to be our answer." The 160 Indian, Eskimo and Metis delegates to the four-day convention, which ends Thursday, advocated Monday that a national native women's organization is needed to solve many problems. They were expected to submit a formal resolution to this effect today. "All of us have common problems and by forming a national body we will have a greater voice in solving problems of native people," said one delegate. "We will make it a strong voice so that we, as women, will not get pushed around like we have in the past." A delegate from Nova Scotia said women could do much to change the Indian image. "It must begin at home with the mothers who need to instill pride in their children," she said. "Tell them to be proud of what they are." daiendar 0^\jCocal~J4a^ Original Pensioners and Senior Citizens Auxiliary Society will meet in gym 2 of the Civic Sports Centre Friday at 2 p.m. Following the meeting, bingo wil be played.
