Q Ask Me By Margaret Luckhurst rPHE feminine pressure groups currently urging govern- ment to full repeal of the modified abortion laws are I believe, acting unwisely and without regard for the many ramifications such action might bring. The groups base their lone argument on the premise tha a woman should have full control of her own body and there- fore be the determining agent in whether or not she will bear a child. Tlu's is a sensible approach, for unwanted children already are a world-wide social problem. The fact that hitherto, our society has based its anti-abor- tion position on moral, ethical, and religious tradition does no move the pressure groups so there is no point in going into i here. However, I have asked leaders of the pressure groups a few pertinent questions which, to date, no one has answeret to my satisfaction, and I pose diem again. In the first place, who is going to be given an abortion and how often can one apply? Will it be regarded as a routine cure for all indiscretions and any inconvenience? An abortion, we know, is a relatively simple operation, requiring a minimum of hospital care, so will women be able to run in and out of hospitals at their whinr? Will doctors be placed in the unenviable position of per- forming abortions on repeaters if this becomes the case? Or will they be given the authority to insist on sterilization? Secondly, have the pressure groups been influenced' and intimidated by governments who have already repealed their own laws, and if so, have they investigated the results lately? In England for example where the abortion law was re- pealed only last year, legislation is already in motion, supported by the medical profession, to reaffirm the modified law pre- viously used which set down conditions under which abortion was available. The government is seeking this because it has found, to Its cost, that badly administered abortion clinics are flourish- ing, hospitals are overcrowded, and waiting lists are unbeliev- ably long. How long can you wait for an abortion? In Canada where hospital beds are already at a premium and doctors considerably overworked, how will holusbolus abor- tions be dealt with? Will second-rate clinics be permitted to operate as in Eng- land, displacing the backroom tradition only in legality? If hundreds of women across Canada urgently needed an abor- tion next month, are the necessary services available? My third question is perhaps speculative but I believe it needs consideration. If we legislate who is and who isn't wanted in this life, what implication will this have in the next five years? Who is to decide who is wanted, a doctor and the hysterical mother of a handicapped child? What will be our attitude to the aged and senile. With the population explosion so worrisome will it become excusable for a family to decide Grandma would be better 'put Would our social misfits in prison and mental hospitals come before a board who will pick and choose who is wanted and who is not? Granted these analogies may not be totally synonymous with abortion but can our permissive society :otally discount their probability? I sympathize with a girl or woman who for her own rea- sons, does not wish to bear a child. I support modified abor- tion laws which would permit her to terminate the pregnancy under the existing conditions. I will so far as to support toUl repeal of abortion laws, provided all avenues of birth control program have been set into total widespread use, and failed. With this in mind, my fourth question to the pressure groups is this: Has there been a concerted effort to implement Ihrough schools, churches and clinics as much propaganda for Subvention of unwanted pregnancy as there has been cure by abortion? Would not the millions of dollars that will be spent on medical and hospital fees for abortions be better directed to ree birth control pilk, sterilization and courses in prevention rather than dubious cure? If this course of action has been taken without success then we have no recourse but to repeal the abortion laws. However, we must be prepared to accept the moral prob- ems and the unknown social manifestations such action will surely bring.
