Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 LETHBRIDGE HERALD TuMday, October 2, 1973 Lynne Van Luven Bleak billboard gives birth to controversy "Never to laugh, or love, or taste the summertime." Sounds prettv bleak, "jsn't it? But like other -i a m a n t billboard .iiements. it tells only iidil the story. The issue is. of course. Abortion. A highly motional and controver- sial topic. Ii opposing Tuon was the way to give all children a chance to love and revel in sunshine, we'd all be in favor of more billboard signs. But, of course, the solution is not that simplistic. No responsible individual in favor of or fighting for a more civilized approach to the abortion question does so out of dis- Reg. to Reg. to Brand respect for human life. Quite the contrary. And no one claims abortion is a desirable method of birth control. However, it is a solution which must sometimes be utilized when prevention has failed. Where is the hum- r in birthing a babe win. ,.u! be raised in a vicious poverty cycle, perhaps unwanted and unloved? What of the baby born to parents un- willing or unable to cope with the responsibility of what should be a welcome and precious gift of new life? What promise of laughter and sunny times, when the spectre of world famine looms on the horizon9 Can the over- burdened world afford to be casual about over- population any longer? And so. the mounting of a provincial campaign in support of Bill 220 a bill to disallow payments tor abortions under the Alberta Health Cdic In- surance Act should be with some decree the South Farmers!

The rationale: the public should not have to pay for abortions if it does not believe in them. Sounds neat and tidy. The result' al! abortions except those ry to avoid endangering 'lie life of a pregnant woman are to be payable by the recipient. That's alright Jack for those in a position of privilege who have ways of finding the money to tmance their abortion. But what of the woman who cannot get a loan to finance itv Or the woman who is sole support of several children and has no family to turn to, for financial backing? Is her fate giving birth to another babe she cannot support? Or will she be forced to seek the dubious services of a backstreet butcher, who'll charge handsomely for the chance of maiming, even killing, her? The public may not approve of cosmetic sur- gery. A portion of the same public condemns blood transfusions. Both procedures are covered un- der AHP. Why don't we dis- allow those too, since some people who pay taxes do not approve of them. And where does one draw the line with this kind of logic? The entire argument for Bill 220 is nothing short of a dispicable red herring. The lobbyists realize increased numbers of people agree with or at least unders- tand the humane and rational need for abortion. Aha! But drag out the issue of the public purse, link rising costs with abor- tions yessir, that wins more support because everybody is touchy about the cost of everything these days. Unfortunately, makjng abortions a luxury item still won't guarantee children 'a place in the sun Vintage threshing machine still gives good service RENFREW.
