Transcript Cont'd from page 1 letter from Peggy Hall, Montrose NOW president NOW. As an attack on politics outside NOW, Montrose chapter is forming a Political Action Committee (PAC). We are also the repository of the script for "A Pageant of American Women,' an official Houston Bicentennial event. It will be revived for Women's History Week in the spring of 1983, and you are all invited to take part and to partake. NEWS OF A SISTER—BARBARA WILLIAMS: A post card from Indiana gives wonderful news—Barbara has put Sociology aside, and applied to Medical School! In just three weeks, she starts at Indiana University Medical School. Guess this means she won't have time for NOW for a few years. Hang in there! Reprinted from The Houston Post, July 15, 1982, p 11BB. LEGAL ABORTIONS SAFER THAN BIRTHS, NEW STUDY SHOWS Chicago (UPI)-A new study indicates women stand a much lower chance of dying after a legal abortion than they do after giving birth. The study by the national Center for Disease Control in Atlanta also said blacks and other minority women are more than twice as likely to die as whites after either abortion or childbirth. "The risk of a healthy woman's dying from elective abortion is extremely rare," said the study, reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association. CDC investigators found that deaths after abortion fell from 3.2 per 100,000 abortions for the years 1972-75 to 0.9 per 100,000 abortions for 1976-78. In contrast, the number of maternal deaths fell from 12.6 per 100,000 live births in 1972-75 to 9.3 per 100,000 live births in 1976-78. Data accumulated since 19 75 support the early finding that abortion is safer for the mother than childbirth in terms of risk of death, said Dr. Willard Cates, Jr., the study's principal author. But the study concluded that women suffering from certain pre-exisitng health problems such as chronic heart disease or obesity "have a greatly increased mortality rate regardless of the pregnancy outcome." In addition, the study found that death rates from abortion were lowest for women 19 years or younger and highest for women aged 35 and above. Blacks and other minority women had a death rate following either abortion or childbear- ing that was more than double the rate of white women. Twice a Minority: Mexican-American Women is a book by a fascinating woman named MARGARITA MELVILLE, who is in the department of anthropology and Mexican-American studies at UHouston. She was featured in the Sunday column "Espejo" by Richard Vera in the "Houston Post" May 30. Melville became interested in Mexican-American women because "all the reports on undocumented people emphasized that they were single males here temporarily, and I didn't believe that. I didn't believe there weren't families here too." She sounds like someone we want to ask to speak to our NOW chapter. SONGS FOR US From: "We Are Women And We Are Singing" Published Apr. 1977 by San Antonio NOW "What Child Is This" (Tune: Greensleeves) What child is this, Who so is born Into a world that Treats her ill? Is she not strong, Is she not proud? Why cannot she ply her own will? This, this, is a Womanchild, With love so soft and rage so wild; She, she will regain her rights, And we will rejoice at her birthing.
