Decision for abortion once-a-lifetime thing By GLENNIS ZILM OTTAWA (CP) The deci- sion to have an abortion is an agonizing one that few women can endure to repeat, says Lore Perron, national director of a pregnancy distress serv- ice. "Few, very few, are repeat- says Mrs. Perron "It's a once-in-a-lifetime thing be- cause the emotional strain is so great. "No woman makes such a decision lightly She and her co-workers at Arcal, the Association for Re- view of Canadian Abortion Laws, have counselled more than women They dis- miss reports that some women consider abortion a method of birth control and have had several "It's says Niki Bergen. "Sure, it happens oc- casionally, maybe three times in a thousand But for the normal, healthy woman, "once is more than says Mrs. Perron "They just wish it never had to happen at all Every to men- tion the husband or other man involved and perhaps a fam- ily of younger to go through a difficult emotional experience while making the decision, she said PROBLEMS NUMEROUS There is anxiety over whether it is right or whether they should consider keeping the baby They have to face numerous individual prob- lems, including family fi- nances "We see a lot of married women with families. They have three children already and another one would really strain the finances Such women feel a commitment to the children already exist- ing." About one-half the women who come to the Arcal clinic here are Roman Catholic, she said These also have reli- gious feelings they must re- solve "The counsellors don't try to make the decisions All we do is try to see whether the woman can live with the deci- sion she has made. We must make as sure as possible she won't fall apart Mrs Perron said that in most of the thousand women she has seen personally the pregnancy was "an acci- dent." "It annoys me when parlia- mentarians say there is no need for a woman to have an unwanted pregnancy No con- traceptive is 100-per-cent per- fect. "As well, the ignorance about sex and about preg- nancy is appalling A lot of women simply don't know how not to get pregnant." METHODS FALLIBLE Mrs Perron said this is par- ticularly true of teenagers "They come in and say they can't get pregnant because it was only a couple of days after their period and they should have been in the safe period. But most women can conceive at any tune of the cycle The rhythm method of birth control is based on the prem- ise that a woman avoids in- tercourse during the time when she usually releases the egg, about 14 days before her menstrual period. At other tunes she is considered safe But one gynecologist advises that "couples who practise this method are usually called parents "Before politicians decide abortion laws are too liberal they should be certain that everyone knows how to pre- vent unwanted pregnancies and that contraceptive meth- ods are freely available to ev- said Mrs Perron. "But we'll need these educational programs for a whole generation before we start denying women a way out. The present educational programs just aren't stopping unwanted pregnancies Just look at the numbers of girls coming to the clinics." METHODS FAIL Mrs Perron said they also see a large number of women who have had their birth con- trol method fail. Either be- cause of human error or me- chanical failure, about 20 per cent don't work "Then you have a woman who has been trying birth control and now she's preg- nant What do you do9" The Grab Bag 6y Maureen Jamieson The Herald- Family THE BETTER HALF By Barnes vBert named a sandwich after you it's two slices of bread with nothing inside COME people try to O beat inflated food costs by cutting down on the size of the portions they serve Others use the cheaper, less tender cuts of beef to make a hearty soup or meat loaf with the added bonus of excellent nutritional value The beefy Pot Au Feu, a meal in itself, is a sure warm- up after a cold day outdoors Make it a day or two ahead, then when you come home cold and weary, skim off the fat and warm the vegetable and beef mixture thoroughly Dinner will be ready by the time you take your shoes off, wash your face and relax Another excellent soup-type meal made from beef shin- bone and brisket is Russian Borsch With either of these recipes, serve a salad, cheese and maybe a red wine if you're feeling fancy BORSCH (serves 6) 3 Ibs beef shinbone 2 Ibs beef brisket, cut into inch cubes 2 cups diced beets 4 cups shredded cabbage 2 large onions, chopped 3V; cups canned tomatoes cup lemon juice 6 garlic cloves, minced (I use powdered) cup chopped parsley 1 small bay leaf, crumbl- ed 1 tsp paprika 3 tblsp sugar 1 tsp salt freshly ground black pepper sour cream Cover shinbone and brisket with two quarts water Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer one hour Add vegetables, lemon juice and seasonings Simmer two hours Remove shinbone, trim off meat and cut into one-inch pieces Discard bone, return meat to soup and simmer 10 minutes Serve with sour cream POT AU FEU (serves 8) 3 Ibs beef brisket 1 shinbone beef 2 medium onions (each stuck with 2 cloves) 6 carrots, peeled 1 turnip peeled and cut into chunks (or other vegetable) 6 green onions, halved 2 cloves garlic tsp thyme 1 tblsp salt 1 tblsp parsley flakes Place first seven in- gredients in large kettle Cover with three quarts of water, add thyme and salt Bring to boil and boil five minutes Skim off residue, add parsley and simmer IVz to 2 hours, or until meat is tender Skim off fat, strain broth and serve as soup Serve the meat with vegetables Note: Extra vegetables can be added the last hour of cooking A regular meat loaf can double as a tasty party dish with very little effort Serve it with crusty hot buttered bread, a favorite vegetable and crisp tossed salad For dessert try cheese fresh fruit and crackers And remember that leftover meat loaf makes a hearty sandwich filling OLD FASHIONED MEAT LOAF (serves 6-8) 2 Ibs ground beef 1 Ib ground veal (or lean pork if veal un- available) 'z cup chopped onion Vz cup chopped parsley tsp salt 1 tsp pepper cup fresh bread crumbs soaked in bouillon Vz tsp rosemary pinch nutmeg 2 eggs beaten bacon strips Blend together all in- gredients except bacon strips and shape into loaf Place bacon on bottom of casserole, top with meat loaf Bake uncovered in oven-proof casserole or baking dish at 325 degrees for IVz to 2 hours When you're ready for nothing short gf sensational you're reafly for X- f V 44 oulin Shockingly beautiful nylon broad loom!
