8 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Solurday, September 25, 1971 Pope will be 74 on Sunday amid retirement rumors By PATRICK O'ICccfe VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Paul will be 74 Sunday, one year short of the age at which some Vatican officials believe he may retire. Rumors that the Pope was considering retirement first cropped up in 19G7 when he paid homage to the rough-hewn cell south of Rome where Pope Ce- lesline of the 13th century spent his last years. Celesta has been the only Pope to resign. This year the rumors were reinforced when copies of the draft for a "fundamental law" of the Roman Catholic Church, ordered drawn up by Pope Paul, began circulating. The draft contains a clause stating that popes have the right to re- sign. Those who predict a papal re- tirement divide into two schools. Some say it will come when the Pope is 75, the age at which at which he has ruled that car- POPE PAUL W Pope Paul has asked that dioce- san bisliops offer their resigna- i tions. Others say at 80, the age clinals lose their privilege of vot- ing for a new pope and must re- sign any curia] office they hold. Michel Cardinal Pellegrino, archbishop of Turin, Italy, and a friend of Pope Paul, has been among those suggesting the pos- sibility that he would retire. REJECTS HUMOR But Rev. Francis X. Murphy, a Redemptorist priest in Home and a well-known writer on church affairs, scoffs at Hie no- tion. "P a u 1 's predecessors have worked hard up to a final illness and died he wrote early Uiis year. "Such is the fate that Pope Paul evidently sees for himself." Pope Paul's three predeces- sors died XXIII at 81 and Pius XI and Pms XII at 82. None was judged enfeebled even in his last years. But Pope Paul has been sub- ject to much pressure and frus- United Church repeats call for abortion law change TORONTO (CP) Thi United Church of Canada has repealed its call for an exten sive change in Canadian abor lid- Uvs in a booklet release! i' -y. The booklet, called Abortion, ea' r abolition of the hospital committee system, but stops short o. endorsing abortion on demand. It maintains thai "abortion under any circum- stances is a serious and moral is but in the final decision the woman involved must play a major role. The locg-range answer to the abortion problem, it says, contraception. The booklet con- tains a strong call for the church to exercise a "coura- geous witness" by declaring that birth control is "a Chris- tian duty" if a child is not wanted. It says "limiting access to abortion is an ineffective, im- mor." and socially disastrous way of maintaining standards of sexual n.crality."

PUSHES SEX EDUCATION The United Church comes out strongly in favor of the wide- spread distribution of birth-con- trol information, sex education in the schools, and provision for those who quest it. Voluntary sterilization should bp considered by couples who have completed their families, it says, but it rejects abortion as "a morally defensible gen- eral form of birth control." Also rejected is the traditional Catholic view that the fetus from the moment of conception is R human being. Rather, the early fptus is viewed as being a potential human being. It can- not simply be regarded as "a part of the mother's body like a r' cr a kidney." The booklet comes during the same week the Catholic Women's League holds its an- nual meeting in Regina. The league has called for let from Canadian women tn oppose legalized abortion. The United Church savs its irreconcilable as they appear. "Our assertion that em- bryonic human life has value, and that abortion thus is always a moral issue, provides some point of contact with traditional Roman Catholic thought." tration in his eight-year reign, repeatedly criticizing those who disobey his ban on artificial birth control, priests who doff their collars lo marry, blood- shed from war and revolution pd what he views as a wave of immorality sweeping the world.
