ABORTION HEARING SET APRIL 19 The House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee will hold public hearings April 19 on an abortion reform bill for Texas. The hearings in Austin at the State Capitol will begin at 2:30 p.m. The House bill, drafted by Rep. Sam Coats of Dallas, would allow abortions to be performed by a licensed physician with the consent of the woman only if she is over 18. Parental consent would be necessary for women 16 to 18 years old and unmarried. All women under l6 would need parental consent for abortions. Texas' present law, which authorizes abortions only when the mother's life is jeopardized, has been ruled unconstitutional by a three-judge federal panel, but the state has not been enjoined from continuing to enforce it. A similar bill in the Senate has been referred to a subcommittee of the Senate Public Health Committee after a hearing March 29. The Senate bill, sponsored by Sen. Tom Creighton of Mineral Wells ( the committee chairman) and Sen. Don Kennard of Ft. Worth, would allow Texas doctors to perform abortions on consenting women over age 16, without legal restrictions. Over 700 persons heard four hours of pleas from supporters and opponents including ministers, mothers, psychiatrists, and physicians. Three women testified who had either undergone abortions or had illigetimate pregnancies. Opponents of abortion reform came out in force for the Senate hearings. Mail to legislators is running heavily against the bills. The Texas Abortion Coalition plans to take a bus from Houston to the House hearing. The cost is $3 per person. Forty-four people must reserve a place to pay for the bus. If you can go to the hearings, call TAC at 666-6921 or 777-37^3. If you can't go to the hearings write your legislators indicating your strong support. Bob Gammage of Houston (District 2k) is a member of the House Criminal .Jurisprudence Committee.
