The women were scattered through the south, east and west galleries and some were chain- ed to their seats. A wild spec- tacle ensued as Commons guards tried to cope with the resisting women, who number- ed about 25. "In view of the difficulties, I suggest that the House be ad- Speaker Lucien La- moreux said as it became ap- paicnt the guards couldn't eas- ily eject the demonstrators. The net effect of the demon- stration, rather than new abor- tion laws, may be restrictions on the 103 years of free access Canadians have led to Parlia- ment. Mr. Lamoureiix said he would meet with party House leaders and has called for a report from the security staff. There were no arrests and no injur- ies. SECOND CLOSURE But it may have been the first time the Commons has been adjourned because of a disturbance. And it was no more than the second time the doors of the Centre Block have been closed, with the House in session, to Canadians. The first was in June, 1968, when thous- ands of disguntled dairy farm- ers stormed the main door after an outside demonstration. "These were worse than the a guard said of the women. MPs tended to agree. "The trouble Is that if they can get away with it, then every screwball group in the country will be down here try- ing Government House Lead- er Donal McBonald said later. The fear is that another1 Paul who accidentally blew himself up in a Commons wash- room in April, 1966, may be at- tracted to the scene. Chartier's deranged act re- sulted in a review of security procedures and parcel check points outside the galleries. But access has remained relatively free because it is felt that any effective screening procedure would be repugnant to the tens of thousands of visitors. MET BY MPs The women, some members of' self-s t y 1 e ri "liberation" groups were part of a group of more than 200 that arrived on Parliament Hill Saturday. n Bride elect Miss Jean Brand- ley, was honored at a miscel- laneous shower hosted by Miss Kathleen Oka with Mrs. Jessie Briosi as co hostess. Miss Brandley will wed Mr. Wil Mar- tens of Coaldale Saturday in the First Baptist Church. Seiving the guests for the St. Augustine's ACW Spring Daffo- dil Tea today were the Evening Group. Treasurers were Miss Mabel Hogg, Mrs. A. E. Turner and Miss D. Church. In charge of refreshments was the Parish Guild; pantry table, Walker- Long, Melling McMahon group and novelties the Myrtle group. Among tire MPs to greet them were Grace Maclnnes NDP Vancouver-Kingsway, Gerlad W. Baldwin River and Lome Nystrom NDP Yorkton-Melville. They had sent letters order- ing Prime Minister Trudeau, Health Minister John Munro and Justice Minister John Turn- er to be there. But Mr. Trudeau was preparing for a Pacific tour, Mr. Munro was in Geneva, Switzerland, and Mr. Turner, angered by the tone of their letter, declined. The women seek repeal of a new law limiting therapeutic abortion to cases in which a hos- pital certifies that continued pregnancy would endanger the health of the mother. The pro-a- brotionists say there should be nothing in the Criminal Code about abortion. Mr. Turner has said the gov- ernment isn't considering an- other change in the law at the moment. Last year's amend- ment was regarded as a politi- cal risk. The abortion clauses in the 1969 criminal law amendment bill caused a lengthy blockade by the Creditistes and uneasi- ness among MPs on Liberal Conservative benches. SOME QUESTIONED Several of Monday's demon- strators were questioned and photographed in the 'office of Commons security chief, George Jones. Some wrists were chafed and one girl complained that the guards nearly broke her arm. But no one was hurt. The guards used wire-cutters and called a locksmith to unchain the girls. Many were in the south-end ladies gallery. Others appar- ently had gone to Liberal Con- servative and New Democrat MPs for passes to the party gal- leries on the east and west side. The MPs rarely bother to ask questions when a consti- tuent asks for a pass. The pass- es buy good will and votes, it is felt. The women who arrived on Parliament Hill in an "abor- tion caravan" Saturday didn't wear make-up, were in slacks, beads and shawls. It was hard to believe they were the same girls, wearing dresses and smiles, who took their places in the galleries Monday. But the innocence soon gave way to a din shortly after Andrew Brewin Greenwood said back-a Hey abortions are still taking place and asked whether further amendments will be- mad e. When Mr. Turner replied that statistics are under constant re- view, a non-committal answer, a girl stood up in the galleries and began making a speech against the abortion law. Guards' quickly coped with her but then girls began pop- ping up all over the gallery, chanting in groups or shouting tlu'ngs like: "You could change Jie law in 24 hours, you men." Speaker Lamoureux called. "The protesters should removed from the galleries immediately." But it. soon became dear that :he perspiring guards, some clapping their hands over the mouths of the girls, only to be ritten, couldn't easily deal with the situation and Mr. Lamour- liexu called adjournement "for Jie moment." SOME LAUGHED A shaken elementary school class gave way as the women after their ejection, streamed chanting "free abrotion on demand." But adults were laughing and one man shouted: Your mother should have had one." Outside, the girls paraded from the centennial flame to Ihe steps b e 1 o w the Peace Tower chanting "abortion now." They wore black head- lieces, for "our dead and those in the front ranks can-led a black coffin. One was pregnant, another carried an infant. Some were middle-aged but most were in their late teens or early 20s. They came from Halifax to Vic- toria. Some wore 1 i b e r a tion buttons. One broke down in tears. They switched to militant red kerchiefs and began .chanting 'No more women will die." A placard on which secion 237 of the Criminal Code, the abortion section, was written was burn- ed. Betsy Mealey of West Van- couver told them Ihe present law is murderous and war is being declared on legislators "who won't listen to us." The coffin was left on the steps.
