Transcript available), there is no reason for this restrictive clause which may well be on the books for another century. The second objectionable clause provides that a pregnant woman who is 14 or one who is 16 to 18 but unmarried must have parental consent for an abortion. It is past time for the state to recognize that a person's body belongs not to the state, not to one's parents, but to the individual. An alternate revision of the Penal Code, which permits an abortion in cases of rape, incest, or probable deformed fetus, is an improvement over the present law(It is difficult to conceive a '.revision, other than total prohibition, that would not be an improvement.). It is, nonetheless, unthinkable. The Texas Abortion Conference meeting in Dallas on November 14 affirmed the right of every woman to exercise full control of her procreative functions. An abortion is justified if the pregnancy is unwanted and the law should make no further restrictions. Only the consent of the pregnant woman should be necessary and sufficient to qualify her for abortion. At the conference, 43 of the delegates voted for the proposed revision of the penal code amended to include abortions "under medical supervision," rather than by licensed physicians alone, and to delete the consent clause. Twenty-one delegates voted for total repeal. Saturday, December 12, at the University of Houston University Center, the State Abortion Cd-ordlnating Committee will meet to discuss plans for an organized protest before the state legislature when it oonvenes in January. The need for citizen participation and public enlightenment on the abortion issue is tremendous. Every woman in Texas is affected. All women must become involved. No woman need ever die at the hands of a quack again or deliver a child she does not want. The coat-hanger should no longer be a symbol of death "DAY CARE LICENSE REVOKED The state day care license of the Shady Acres Nursery in Houston has been revoked by an unanimous decision of the State Board of Public Welfare. The nursery was charged with inadequate personnel, health standards, recreational equipment, and with giving the children inadequate food. The license was removed after an advisory committee of Harris County day care center operators recommended the removal. After 60 days, however the nursery may apply for another license.
