Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, 11, 1970 THE UTHBRIDOE HERAID 15 No Mention Of Threat To Unborn Inconsistency In Hospital Abortion Policy TORONTO (CP) Two legal researchers say Canada's year- old abortion law gets such vary- ing interpretations that women are forced to go "hospital shop- ping" for an institution willin to do tlie operation.

Oh, the building's the came as it ever was an al most windowless structure with an unbelievable maze o: corridors. But walk up to those double doors in the front ant open them you'll sense the difference. There's something there a feeling that per- meates the whole atmosphere; something that makes a smile and a peacs sign from an un- familiar figure seem the most natural thing in the world. Walk down the main hall and peek to the gym a long time since you worked that hard at having fun! Next, the fine arts room and watch Willie Mathis on tha drams, practising up for the next football game; this school's got room only for the best. The studious expressions in the various classrooms are consistent with the learning taking place the learning, not teaching. Everywhere you'E find students with their school, their city, then- country, their world. You'll hear radical opinions ex- pressed to sometimes heated debates and you'll learn, too, if you listen, about how social problems relate to you, and more important, how you can relate to them. In Churchill, the people real- ly feel they are not the spec- tators, that's up tc someone else; they are the participants. And isn't that the only way to karn? Football season's under way again and the excitement of the game is influencing every- one. Anyone witnessing the pep rally last Friday will tell you they felt it too. Students of Churchill need no vocal train- ing when expressing how they feel about their school an team. They voiced the: views Saturday Churchill's first game this sea son.

PARAMOUNT THEATRE BIDG., LETHBRIDGE NAME.................................... ADDRESS............................... and Harris S. Wineberg said a study of 10 public hospitals in Toronto and Winnipeg showed a "general lack of consistency" abortion policy. Criminal Code amendments given Royal Assent in June, 1969, and proclaimed Aug. 26 that year direct hospitals to set up three-member therapeutic abortion boards which can allow abortions if continuing the preg- nancy would endanger the mother's life or health, includ- ing mental health. The law is so confusing that the panels of doctors set up under the law at each hospital to approve abortion applications are letting "all manner of per- sonal biases" influence deci- sions, especially to interpreting the mental-health criterion. Al doctors interviewed said changes in the law "purporting to liberalize the law On thera- peutic abortions have not af- fected their hospital's rate of the young Toronto lawyers report. But although the percentage of applications approved has not changed, "the term 'liberaliza- tion' has entered the public on- sciousness and resulted fa rapid escalation of applica- tions." The number of abortions performed has thus gone up. SUGGEST REVISION They concluded that the new law already needs revision; there is a "regrettable absence of appeal procedures" and a "serious inequality of access" to the abortion boards.

Tuesday at p.m. doctor who knows "the right people" can pave the way for a healing. The facts that only one hospi- tal's abortion board included a woman doctor and that no board allowed women to plead their cases to person appeared to be a denial "of natural jus- tice." In proposing a solution they rejected repeal of the law against criminal abortions as politically unacceptable, and ruled out forcing strict interpre- tation as likely to drive more women to illegal abortionists. Then- compromise suggestion was to keep the existing system, but add the .right of appeal ei- ther to the courts or to a central abortion committee. The researchers said their in- terviews rath 16 doctors in the two cities showed that doctors on abortion committees "made no pretence of excluding per- sonal biases from their deci- sions and, in fact, rationalized those biases under the guise of psychiatric cause.. Most doctors indicated they "do not feel constrained in any way" by the standards set out in the Criminal Code. The investigators said they Fashion Show To Assist Retarded The Lethbridge Association for the Mentally Retarded will hold a fall fashion show in cars and furs at the Yates Centre Sept. 23 at p.m. Following the show, the sodal committee of the association will serve refreshments in the lobby.

All proceeds will go to sup- port the work of the associa- tion. found applications based on fear for the mother's physical healtl were "almost invariably" ap proved. CITE ABUSES But there was wide-scale abuse of the right to grant abor lions on mental grounds. Such wide interpretation is possible and so many hospitals gran abortions on grounds unrelated to the law that the committees have become "givers of mercy to those whose situation to life is deemed sufficiently pitiful Five out of six hospitals saic they would always approve end tog a pregnancy resulting from rape or incest and none said i would refuse an abortion to a girl under age 15, even if men tal health was not to danger. All hospitals said they woulc grant abortions to mothers who had developed German measles during common cause of baby malformation- even though the law does no mention threats to the health of the unborn.

Ann Landers DEAR ANN LANDERS: In your column recently there appeared a letter from a woman who wanted to bear a child through artificial insemination since her husband's tests proved him incapable of fatherhood. I was especially interested in her letter because I am fac- ing a serious crisis as a result of the same problem. My hus- band has agreed to artificial insemination but only if I use his father's sperm. I was shocked at first, but his father insists on it and says unless we agree, he will not consider our child his legitimate heir. I have no real objections since I admire my father-in-law very much and the insemination would be artificial. But I do have some strange feelings. Will you ease my conscience and give me your blessings? DEAR LU: Since you have no "real go ahead, but you do so without my blessings. Such an arrangement has endless possibilities for a lifetime of trouble. A father in law who makes such demands must be wildly egocentric, If not crazy. A husband who would agree needs to examine his rela- tionship with his father. My guess is that he feels vastly in- ferior to Pa. The ultimate act of self-emasculation would be to allow his father to impregnate his wife. As for you, my dear, have you considered what it would be like to give birth to your own brother-in-law? I don't know how much money is involved here, but in my opinion there isn't enough money in the world to make this deal acceptable. DEAR ANN LANDERS: I loved your advice to the tall gal who wanted to date the shrimp but was afraid people would laugh. I know this situation well because I am 5'10" and my husband is a good two heads shorter than I am. My first husband was 6'4" but he was a runt compared to the man I am now married to. My present husband towers above my ex in just about every way you can think of except height. Sure, people gawk when we walk down the street together. And when we dance they sometimes laugh out loud, but who cares? Our marriage is ten times better than those of most of the people who are laughing. My guy is so generous and considerate I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. It's great to be married to a man you can look up to in the ways that count. Tell the world, will you? Mams DEAR MAMA: What a lovely letter! Please convey my heartiest congratulations to your husband. A guy who can make a woman feel as you do is a giant among men.
