NeCMMranUndtr It Twn of Aft Soviet-bloc tightens loose abortion law By GWYNNE ROBERTS VIENNA So- viet-bloc states in southeast Europe are tightening once liberal abortion laws to halt declining birth rates and of- fering financial incentives to persuade couples to produce more children. Abortion is one of the most frequently performed oper- ations in this but au- thorities now are worried that this might lead to economic disaster. Communist media warn that over-all population fig- ures may begin to shrink un- less present trends are re- versed. East-bloc govern- ments also clearly fear eco- nomic progress could be se- riously impeded by aging East European at- tacked for attaching more im- portance to a car than a are urged to think in terms of two to three children or more and forgo the material lux- uries enjoyed by smaller family groups. As govern- ments are increasing family allowances and payments made to mothers forced to give up regular work during pregnancy and the post-natal period. But there is also wide- spread concern over the health dangers caused by abortion. Bulgarian health authorities have released a statistical survey which shows between 25 to 30 per cent of women un- dergoing the operation suf- fered damage to their health. In many they this meant the women's abil- ity to have children was im- paired. Abortion laws in Bulgaria Garden plots end summer with soup CALGARY More than 100 families contributed some vegetables to make a soup for a festival at Family Gardens 40 miles south of here. The festival marked the conclusion of a summer's work for both amateur and veteran city gardeners who rented plots along a creek in Squaw Coulee. In addition to traditional participants grew cantaloups vine-ripened garlic and sunflowers. Many harvested almost worth of fresh vegetables from 25-by-50 foot plots. Some gave produce away to their others sold it through the Calgary farmers' market and two built cold storage rooms in their basements. The Family Gardens pro- ject was started last spring by Dave a professional engineer who grew up on a Calgary district and Jack who owns the farm on which the project is located. GET OUT OF CITY wanted to encourage people to get out of the city for a few days during the summer and renew their contact wun nature. They also wanted to help Alberta become more self-sufficent in vegetable production. The project covers 320 acres of rolling country over which piot renters and their children are free to roam. The garden plots cover 10 acres. The plots range from 25 by 50 feet for by 50 feet for and 50 by 100 feet for Water from an irrigation system is optional at Although some apartment dwellers rented most were rented by home owners with families.

But now the situ- ation has changed. Women form an power base in Bulgaria where about one-fifth of the national parliament is female. They also provide a sizable per- centage of the skilled work force. Staunch opposition from these quarters was reported to have helped quash even stiffer restrictions on abortion laws. Women with no children or just one child now are forbid- den to interrupt pregnancy. Exceptions are made for girls under women over 45 and in cases of grave rape or incest. Abortion is allowed for womerTwith two or more chil- but only if the preg- nancy is less than 10 weeks ad- vanced Last year there were an es- timated abortions which contributed to a significant reduction in the national birth rate. Be- tween 1969 and the rate dropped from 17 to 15.4 per thousand people. Statisticians calculate that when it dips to around 12 the population level is stagnant with deaths cancelling out births. A declining rate is also a fact of life for Hungary and abortion laws have been stif- fened. The problem is more serious than in Bulgaria. Health Minister Dr Zoltan Szabo disclosed recently that the national birth rate had sagged to 14.7 per thousand and the population was only increasing at a rate of 3.3 per thousand annually. The number of legally in- duced abortions was last well in excess of the live births. Hungary has also expressed anxiety about health dangers associated with abortion and has made the contraceptive pill more freely available. Hungarian medical author- ities believe an increase in premature births is largely due to abortion. About 10 to 11 per cent of all live births are premature in worst rate in Europe. Abortion has been prac- tically banned in since the mid-60s and there are indications that the Buch- arest government is waging a campaign against increasing numbers of doctors ready to perform the operation ille- a fee. i By PAUL MAJENDIE PARIS Juvenile delinquency has risen sharply in Western Europe and governments now have decid- ed to'attack the root of the maladjusted family life. A recent meeting of Euro- pean ministers responsible for family affairs highlighted the problem of delinquent children. Statistics from the Council of Europe helped to hammer home the urgency of the situation. A Council of Europe report entitled Children and Young Persons at Risk showed that in France the number of judg- ments passed on criminals un- der 18 had increased by 180 per cent from 1958 to 1969. In West Germany the number of offenders under 14 rose by 77 per cent between 1963 and while in Scotland the figure leapt by 85 per cent. In Belgium figures showed that the number of young peo- ple to appear in court has shot up 400 per cent within a decade. These statistics acted as a basis for discussion by minis- ters from 15 European nations who attended a conference in Nice in September. After examining their find- the ministers are attempting to put into action across Europe the one deci- sion they all agreed quent children should be treated within their own families rather than in an in- stitution whenever possible. The ministers agreed that though often a more expensive process was infinitely preferable to cure. The Council of Europe report showed thai a primary cause of maladjustment was an unsatisfactory early mother-child relationship. This was highlighted by one significant only 30 per cent of the prostitutes hi Copenhagen were brought up by their parents. The ministers decided it was essential to give the fami- ly unit as much psychological and financial aid as was possible. Europe's social services must be folly and their qualified personnel sharply increased to stem the flow of the ministers said. Also they had the novel idea of trying within their in- dividual states to form specialized families which could be equipped to take disturbed children into their care. But while stressing that a happy family life was the best possible the ministers hit out at the quality of life in Europe by saying that many modem residential areas totally failed to cater to children's needs. They castigated town plan- ners who failed to put play- grounds and do-it-yourself workshops high among their priorities in building new liv- ing quarters.
