Send your child's quotation to this paper The Herald" amily i Visiting members of the Alberta Cabinet were presented with a seven-page brief yesterday, disputing a private member's bin proposing that Alberta health care payments for therapeutic abor- tions be restricted to cases where the life of the pregnant woman was "severely threatened." The Options for Women Council sub- Ontions for Women Council presents JT V micted the brief to Helen Hurvsy without portfolio in charge of '.he ;certa M mission and the Womsn'3 Bureau, and Crawford, at head of from left, former minister r O: Healxh Nell Women defend right to healthcare By MAUREEN JAMIESON Family Editor Abortion is a medical ser- vice and should be available on the same basis as any other surgical procedure, according to submitted to visiting members of the Alberta Cabinet yesterday by the Lethbridge Options for Women Council. And if contraception is made available to women at their own discretion, they will not engage in indiscriminate sexual promiscuity, using abortion as a substitute for other means of contraception. The brief was presented to Helen Hunley, former minister without portfolio in charge of the Alberta Health Care Insurance Commission and the Women's Bureau. Health Minister Neil Craw- ford was also in attendance. Chief aim of the presenta- tion was to combat Bill 220, a private member's bill propos- ing an amendment to the Alberta Health Care in- surance Act, which would make therapeutic abortions insurable only if the life of the pregna.nt woman were "severely threatened." PUNITIVE ATTEMPT Council member Pam Madsen, reading the brief, claimed the proposed bill "reflects a deliberate and punitive attempt to deprive women of their right to ade- quate health care and of their right to decide when and if they choose to have children. "It is an implicit encourage- ment for women to seek out other, medically unsafe abor- tions It would remove an option now available to women to control their own reproduction. "We said Ms. Madsen, "abortion should be used as a backup measure for other means of contraception that fail, and should not be regarded as a first line of defence against unwanted pregnancy." She concluded her reading of the brief with the following recommendations: That abortion continue to be treated as a necessary medical procedure. That the provincial government make every ef- fort to provide contraceptive measures which are both effective and non-injurious. That the government ac- tively support non-punitive sex education, so citizens may become responsible for their own sexual behavior and relationships. PROGRAMS EXIST Ms. Hunley, who said she was most appreciative of the brief, explained that it is most unlikely Bill 220 "will ever get to second reading, judging by the present schedule in the House." One council member, who wished to remain anonymous, pointed out "there is also a considerable number of peo- ple against the bill in spirit as well as in deed." Mr. Crawford, said "one of the duties of our provincial agency (the department of health and social development! is that of providing safe medical procedures, and I believe that we do." In sex education, he added, "people have very con- siderable personal respon- sibility. However, programs for proper counselling do ex- ist. "I speak of things like fami- ly life education and the kind of thing that can be supported by the social services program." NOT OFFENSIVE These provide the necessary information "and do not of- fend people who fear family life education as promoting immorality. "It is not a desirable thing to promote immorality." he said. "Someone can be helped by a program, or hurt by a program; so most of these things are handled on a local basis." Ms. Madsen expressed the opinion that, ignorance about sex and biology are reasons for experiment great harm. "Surclv it is p> Mr. Crawford, "t guise of family ttiere are people. ing to do harm1' thai there are pi can do harm. "We're finding our iaraily life education, social counsell- ing and cniSreacn programs are providing young ple with that they want. "We rely on the peopl? who develop programs like this to be responsible. "What one community will Ms. Hunley ex- plained, "another will reject I'm a grcvn believer that a program should be tailored u; meet the nerds of the conimunitv." PUBLIC DECIDES She said tnat public pressure decided whether a program would or would not be launched. "Any coirttTUJtt province can counselling type such as family lif or day caro.

PHONE 327-6070 By RODNEY FINDER London (AP) Princess Anne, royal tomboy, ap- proaches the altar at historic Westminster Abbey with some Britons wondering whether she will assume the manners of a gentle, blushing bride. She prefers fast cars to slow coaches, rough riding to soft living, casual clothes to haute couture. She's better known for some scathing sallies of sarcasm than for diplomatically-turned phrases. When she fell off a horse, the 23-year-old daugh- ter of the Queen snapped at reporters and photographers: "You've had your money's leave me alone." Anne, fourth in line to the throne, marries cavalry Capt. Mark Phillips Nov. 14. Al- though a commoner. Phillips comes from a well-to-do, so- cially-established family. A quickening of public in- terest is illustrated fay a flood of wedding presents, a spate of souvenir booklets, an emerging industry of en- graved china tea mugs and reports of booming color tele- vision rentals.

PRINCESS ANNE AND FIANCE MARK PHILLIPS But some stri have brought a dif wedding stir- red by well-meaning of the princess. The house the young couple will call homo, the cruise they'll call their honeymoon and one of their biggest wed- ding gifts have all come in for heavy criticism. It's a far cry from the pub- lic goodwill thai presaged the Nov. 20, HM7. wedriinp- of Anne's mother, !her, Princess Elizabeth, in Philip Mount batten, now Prince Philip. Britain then had just emerg- ed from an exhausting war and the royal festivities were a glittering contrast K> the rigors of austerity. Now. in a richer, brighter Britain the biggest newspaper siories so far have centred on attacks against some mar- riage .sidelights. CHEAP RENT First, the marital home. Capt. Phillips. 25. will work as an instructor at Sandhurst Military Academy and the royal couple will live in a five- bedroom Georgian mansion nestling among the trees there, they will pay the de- fence ministry week for the house. The small rent and the large home jarred many Britons worried by rocketing house prices. My daughter's husband works hard to save in" a with a bath, but every time they near their savings target up go house prices and Mrs. Betty limerton complained in a let- ler to the mass-circulalion Daily Mirror.

The filter has become part of a light, airy sculpture. The bread was first allowed to curl, then sprayed with copper and used in an abstract design. A home should reflect its owners' personalities and does not have to cost a for- tune, says Mrs. Butterfield. "Your home is the setting for yourself and your family." she advises, "so lei it reflect your skills, talents and interests. "If it does this, it's bound to be attractive." if you lack confidence in your skill and ingenuity, start small she says. For instance, carpet your stairs with carpet remnants, samples or small throw rugs in different colors each big ev.ove'i to fit. one step.

A Young love is hitting the headlines all over the world, this week. In Toronto, a young couple getting married next month will start off on the right track. Brian Moonie, 24, will marry his Diana Kilburn. 20, on a moving street car a vintage model normally used for summer sightseeing. Plans call for the 60 vvcd'iing guests to board, the streetcar at Exhibition Park. The groom, minister and bride" will all board at different stops further down the line. The streetcar has been given the name Devotion. In Southampton. England, Mervyn Glue and Christine Young had to postpone their wedding when they let their dream home slip through their fingers. They finally decided to turn down the mortgage conditions demanded by the real estate agent, who wanted them to "take the contracep- tive pill for a period of five years" so they could afford the payments. You think that's hard to swallow? Well in Youngstown, Ohio. Daniel Shapira is contesting his father's will, requiring him to marry a Jewish girl of Jewish parents. If he does not comply, his third of the estate will go to the state of Israel. Oh well, the course of true love I just had to check my calendar and make sure this is 1973.
