Transcript ACLU As reported in Creater Houston ACLU-The Activist's Quarterly. ABORTION: This situation involved a young girl attempting to get an abortion without parental consent. After a number of phone calls it was determined that if a girl lived at home and did not have funds to, pay for an abortion, to receive the service free or for a reduced rate she must have some evidence of the parents' income. There are a number of places where women can obtain abortions without parental consent if they have money. This gal did. Attorney. Jo Ann Doughtie CREDIT DISCRIMINATION: This case involves a denial of extension of credit for home improvements. The company has discounted the woman's income in determining her eligibility for credit. Also, they want the woman to have a longer credit history than her husband. We will challenge this discrimination on the basis of the Equal Credit Opportunity Act which is a federal statute. Attorney. Patti O'Kane BEVERLY McCABE v. MASTERCHARGE; BEVERLY McCABE v. BANKAMERICARD: These cases will be filed on the basis of the Texas Discrimination Act. These companies refused to issue a credit card in the woman's name even though she qualified for credit, and sent them to her husband in her husband's name instead. Attorney: Patti O'Kane CAMILE LUPRETE v. CITY OF PASADENA: Our plaintiff has had a lifelong ambition to be a police- person. Just when she thought she had succeeded, her hopes were dashed. Camile is a karate expert, an excellent marks- person, has taken courses in law enforcement, and had cadet training in the Police Academy. She was taken off radio patrol and put on a desk job. When she complained, she was fired. Since then she has been working on various security jobs. This case is ready for trial and we are awaiting a setting. Attorney: Elliott Tucker A PERSON BY ANY OTHER NAME ? A local jewelry company would not issue a credit card to a woman who was using a name other than her husband's, i.e., her own name. This matter was handled by negotiation and the company reconsidered, issuing a card which has the birth surnames of both husband and wife, as the couple wanted. Attorney: Patti O'Kane NO HYPHENS AT DPS? The Department of Public Safety refused to issue a driver's license to a woman who wanted to hyphenate her name and her husband's name. The DPS claimed not to have the means to hyphenate and that the woman should take them to court. The DPS found a hyphen in their typewriter and the license was issued. Attorney. Patti O'Kane IN RE LYNN ERICKSON: We are appealing from a State District Judge's decision refusing to change the name of a woman (who had been married for 10 years) to her birth surname. She can begin using any name she desires, but she wants judicial recognition of the change. This is discretionary with the judge; this case is on appeal for abuse of judicial discretion. The judge stated that he thought it was immoral for a woman to have a name different from her husband's! He further stated that a husband has a property right in his wife and at common law the wife was required to take the husband's name. Attorney: Patti O'Kane BIG TIMBER BAR-B-Q Brittmore and Old Katy Road problem pregnancy? AARON WOMEN'S CLINIC continually working to find new alternatives to offer women PREGNANCY TESTING GUIDANCE • INFORMATION Strict Confidentiality call 774-9706 how to choose a doctor Getting good health care from your doctor depends on you. The Houston Women's Health Collective offers the following guidelines to help you find a good doctor and prepare yourself for a visit to the gynecologist. BEFORE YOU GO Shop Around. The health collective has on file names and descriptions of doctors other women have recommended. The County Medical Association can provide you with the names of doctors in your area. When you call the doctor's office, make sure s/he offers the services you need and find out how much it will cost. For example, some private physicians do not do gonorrhea cultures. And many general practitioners do routine pelvic exams including pap smear for a lower price than most gynecologists. You might also ask whether or not the doctor will allow you access to your chart. Make a list of all your problems and questions to take with you, along with this article. Read the booklet "Pelvic Examinations" or pages 121-122 in Our Bodies, Our Selves for a description of a routine pelvic. Plan to bring a light and mirror if you are having a pelvic and want to see inside your vagina and the outside of the cervix (neck of the uterus). Ask a friend to come for support and help in asking questions, especially if you are very sick and feeling weak and confused. WHILE YOU ARE THERE, EXPECT AND ASK FOR Time to describe your symptoms or problems thoroughly. You know more about some things, like where and how much you hurt, than any doctor. An explanation in a way you can understand of what is happening during the exam, including looking at the instruments if you are curious. A diagnosis and explanation of your condition, including results of tests. A description and explanation of all treatment, including how long it will take, and alternatives s/he may know of. Knowing about your treatment includes identifying drugs, their side effects and contra-indications. Ask for generic drugs which are the same chemically, but usually not as expensive as brand name drugs. The right to decide what happens to your body The doctor should have your permission to carry out treatment, and should stop any procedure at your request. In the case of surgery, you usually should get a second opinion. AFTERWARDS Shop around for your prescription, about prices and available sizes. Call drug stores and ask Call back for lab results and ask what they mean. For example, find out what class a pap smear is and what that means. You may need another pap smear. Call back if the treatment is not working as soon as it should or if you are reacting to a drug. Share your experiences with other women. Write the Houston Women's Health Collective in care of Breakthrough, or call 526-7406 or 523-6994. If you are not satisfied, call or write the doctor and complain; let her/him know why if you decide to stop going there. Call or write the County Medical Association if you wish to register a complaint. m s I * i i i s i * # * # # » * * * * # * * 661-9994 JUDYKIER,M.S.W. and ADELE WALLACE, M.S.W. announce the opening of their offices for the practice of Psychotherapy at 5650 KIRBY DR.
