Transcript Would you support the funding of abortions for poor women in county hospitals? mm _ 5 * *&tf 5>Jjt£'tM< *' "*- *V Jff __ "I will vote to make county funds available for abortions." —Joe Pentony "...providing the revenue expended would not mean a...loss of existing — Shawn Casey services. k4A woman should not be restricted in her freedom of choice regarding abortion." —Mike Driscoll "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." -Wayne Heinze Pentony each polled a large share, but not the necessary two-thirds for an endorsement. Pentony served as a state representative for two terms, worked with Sarah Weddington to oppose anti-abortion legislation and campaigned for both the state and national ERA. Casey says he has worked with his wife in feminist causes for years. Driscoll feels that his years of legal and judicial experience "have involved me closely with a broad range of problems faced by women as victims of physical abuse; rape; non-support; and medical, employment, and consumer discrimination. " Heinze considers the ERA unnecessary and potentially damaging to women's status. "I believe that guidelines have already been established for equal jobs and pay. My reservations on the ERA come from the family situation: a young couple with credit cards in the wife's name might get in trouble. What if she becomes pregnant and they get a divorce and she can't pay the bill?" The candidates were asked if they would support continued funding of abortions to low income women through county hospitals. Pentony replied, "I will vote to make county funds available for abortions." "I would be amenable to this (proposal) providing the revenue expended would not mean a deterioration or loss of already existing medical services," said Casey. In Driscoll's opinion, "A woman should not be restricted in her freedom of choice regarding abortion." Heinze thinks that there are too many children born at county expense, but doesn't see abortion as part of the solution. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." *Texas County Government: Let the People Choose by Robert E. Norwood for the Texas Research League, 1972. Ronald G.

Political advertisement paid for by Elect Wiesenthal Committee, Bernus Wm. Fischman, Treasurer; 2100 Travis, Suite 707; Houston, TX 77002. Women Support Bill V. Williams BILL V. WILLIAMS is a dedicated worker who is concerned that affirmative action in hiring in the COUNTY CLERK'S office be a reality - not a promise. His major opponent is running on the issue that she has been running the COUNTY CLERK'S office for years anyway and so should get recognition for it. But when confronted with the disproportionate number of white male supervisors of a heavily female staff, she claims she really isn't in charge. BILL V. WILLIAMS is ready to commit himself to Equal Employment Opportunity regardless of race, sex or sexual preference. If you think the time is now to elect persons FOR women and minorities and who are willing to make (as Helen Copitka said it) a quantifiable stand, then join with us in supporting BILL V. WILLIAMS for the office of COUNTY CLERK, the best person for the job. In Sisterhood, GERTRUDE BARNSTONE REMA LOU BROWN MARJON BRYAN BILLIE CARR HELEN COPITKA J. E.
