Action League) will be held at the Joe C. Thompson Convention
Center, University of Texas at Austin on Saturday, November 18, from
9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. In 1973, the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that:

useful in the effort to maintain each woman's human, civil and religious
rights to responsibly control her own reproduction. Program participants include:
Barbara Balfour, Chair, Texas Abortion Rights Action League
Karen Mulhauser. Executive Director, National Abortion
Rights Action League, Washington, D. C.
Reverend Father Joseph O'Rourke, President, Catholics for
