Transcript NEW COALITION TO PROTEST ABORTION LAWS The Texas Abortion Coalition, formed in Houston December 12, voted to express its views with public hearings and a rally in Austin on January 3°. The coalition, hosted by Houston NOW and formed by Individuals and organizations Interested in abortion reform, will voice Its objections to the current Texas abortion law and to two provisions of the State Bar Association's proposed revisions of the Penal Code. The proposed code, which is expected to be introduced in the legislature in its 1971 session, requires abortions to be performed by a licensed medical practitioner and stipulates that females who are 14 or younger or who are 16-18 and unmarried have parental consent for abortions. The current law, declared unconstitutional in June, 1970, and under appeal, permits abortion only when the health of the mother is endangered. The TAC endorsed a revision of the Penal Code calling for abortions requiring only the consent of the pregnant woman, regardless of age or of marital status, unless she is adjudged mentally Incompetent. The revision further permits abortions to be performed by authorized medical personnel acting under the direct medical supervision of a doctor. The coalition will hold its public hearings on abortion reform at the University of Texas. Members will hold a public rally on the grounds of the state Capitol following the hearings and lobby with their legislators. Glnny Whitehill of Dallas was elected chairwoman of TAC and Doris Henserllng, also of Dallas, was elected treasurer. Sarah Wedding- ton of Ft. Worth was named honorary chairwoman. She is an attorney who represented the defendants in the test case that resulted in the Texas abortion law being declared unconstitutional. Among the groups represented at the TAC meeting at the University of Houston Student Center were NOW, the University of Houston Women's Liberation, Austin Women's Group, Dallas Women's Liberation, Zero Population Growth, University of Texas Women's Liberation, and the Abortion Education Committee of Dallas. A steering committee representing each of the groups in the coalition was appointed and will meet in Austin January 9» UP FROM UNDER THE NET Women's tennis has "come a long way, baby" after decades of male domination of the game. The women began their counterattack by boycotting the Pacific Southwest champlonship(first prize for men, |12,500; for women, $1500)and staging their own tournament in Houston. It proved so successful that Virginia Slims cigarettes put up $75, 000 to help sponsor a cross-country tour. The women's rebellion has paid off. The Pacific Coast tournament has upped the women's purse from $2000 to $11,000, and the Embassy Tournament in Wembly, England, boosted its prize from $2000 to $10,000. Men players still regard the women's game as a sideshow attraction, but the truth is that women draw the fans. The strategy and long rallies of the women's matches are more interesting to the average player than the men's stereotyped power game.
