Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 19, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, November 19, Ann Landers Women seeking abortions need special attention Dear Ann Landers: I figured that all those loony letters would get to you sooner or later, but I didn't expect it to happen so soon. I honestly believe you've gone off your rocker. I just read where you and some other oddballs have signed some sort of endorse- ment for marijuana. Now you say it is "normal" for kids to use it and all the scare stories about marijuana are nonsense and actually turning kids to harder stuff because they don't believe any of the propaganda about drugs. I always thought you had good, common sense, and I was pleased you were against pot because it helped me make a case with my own children. They have faith in what you say and will take it from you, but not from me. Now, what am I to tell them when they catch up with your latest? Please explain. I am Dumbfounded Dear Founded or perhaps I should say Dear Dumb: Talk about getting facts twisted, you win the cut-glass fly swatter My position on mari- juana is unchanged. I haven't budged an inch. I still believe that marijuana is NOT harmless. I continue to be op- posed to any mind-altering drug including alcohol, es- pecially for teenagers. I DID sign a statement declaring that I am in favor of the decnminalization of mari- juana This does not mean that I want to see it legalized. I do not But I do want to see the laws in regard to posses- sion changed. The name of the organiza- tion whose statement I en- dorsed is "NORML." It is The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. The state volunteer coor- dinator is Paul H. Kuuhn, Jr., a highly respected gentleman. The other "oddballs" (your term, not mine) who have en- dorsed the decrimmalization statement are John Finlator, William F Buckley, Jr., James J. Kilpatrick. Sens. Barry Goldwater, Jacob Javits, Harold Hughes, Charles Percy, and Adlai Stevenson III, and Joel Fort, M.D. You write better than you read and your apologies are accepted. Dear Ann Landers: I feel embarrassed writing this letter but something has been preying on my mind for a long time. You are the only one who can relieve my anxiety. Please help. Several years ago, I was struggling with an intimate crisis in my life. I wrote to you and poured out my heart. I signed that letter and gave my correct name and address. Now, five years later, I am leading a happy and produc- tive life and am considering running for public office. Is there any chance that my letter to you is still in your files? Could anyone possibly see it? I am ashamed to confess that this thing has become an obsession with me. Please reply. Late Smart Dear T.L.S.: Relax, friend. We keep no letters on file All letters are destroyed. Furthermore, every letter written to Ann Landers is handled by me or one of my competent, closed-mouthed secretaries. WteeWhimsv Sheme Englehart will be sent the original an for her quote Send your child's quotation to this paper VANCOUVER (CP) A highly-trained professional counsellor may not necessari- ly be the best adviser to a woman seeking advice about an abortion, say some counsellors in Vancouver. Gardiner Gladstone, who works as one of three abortion counsellors at the Women's Health Collective, said she doesn't feel she would be as effective in her work if she was a professional. "Professional workers deal with people one right after the other on an assembly-line basis, but women seeking an abortion need individual attention. "There are so many ways in which you can give support and attention that have nothing to do with she said in an interview. Ms. Gladstone said there is a need to draw a woman out or make her feel comfortable about discussing her feelings. "You can't really get into it without getting an overview of what's going on in the woman's life, and how she got pregnant. "At the same time, you're dealing with such factors as the woman doesn't want her parents to know; or her man has left her; or she's worried about being able to get preg- nant said Ms. Glad- stone. Marti Wendt, a former day- care centre co-ordinator who joined the collective last spring, said women under 19 encounter the most problems while seeking abortions. She agreed that the casual approach to counselling is the best, adding that younger women have a hard time emo- tionally while seeking help. "In the first place, they have a hard time finding us, and when they do get to us they see us as part of the alien adult she said. "If we're in a casual en- vironment, and act casually, they're more likely to trust us." Ms. Gladstone said she had become involved with the Vancouver collective after working with one in Boston and becoming involved in the women's movement there. The group counsels about 40 pregnant women ranging in age from 14 to 40 each month. The women are referred to the collective by school guidance counsellors, local physicians, crisis centres and friends. The two said they believe fewer women would need sec- ond, or third, abortions if doc- tors did a better job of con- traceptive counselling. Ms. Gladstone said even when- using the birth-control pill, a backup contraceptive is needed for the first month of use. She said this is especially important for a woman who has had an abortion because that is a fertile time. She also noted the impor- tance of double protection for a woman who has been given an IUD (Intra-uterine "Doctors may neglect to tell the woman to use a backup contraceptive for the first three months that she uses an IUD." YWCA clears More than "children of all ages" tramped through the YWCA's Haunted House last month. Jeanna_ Batty ex- ecutive director of the YW said Monday the YW cleared which will go towards operating costs. She said the Haunted House is only one of a number of projects to raise operating money for the YW. COMING TO WOOLCO: TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 19th and 20th A.M. to P.M.
