Transcript —The fight for abortion rights was dealt a devastating blow December 6 when ,the house adopted an amendment to the Child Health Assurance Program bill (£HAP) which prohibits Medicaid funding for abortions except when necessary to save the life of the woman. This amendment actually seeks to change Title XFX of the Social Security Act, which is the medicaid statute. It is more serious than an appropriations bill prohibition because it writes restrictions into the authorizing language itself, which docs not come up yearly for review and approval, it is, in effect, A PERMANENT PROHIBITION AGAINST FUNDING FOR ABORTIONS- THROUGH MEDICAID EXCEPT WHEN NECESSARY TO SAVE THE WOMAN'S LIFE. The amendment also j j interferes with court orders to fund abortions because the court orders are based on what is said in the Medicaid statute. This extremely serious prohibition against Medicaid funding for abortion j services is not public law and will not become law and go into effect as long as * it is not also approved by the Senate. Next year, look for. attempts to obtain more restrictive appropriations legislation (to prohibit funding except when the life of the woman is endangered); anti-abortion targeting on more and more authorization bills, which will involve a variety of government programs; and very serious efforts to restrict any state funding of abortions. While review of our recent legislative j history is sobering, we should not be discouraged. An increasing number of Congressional offices are reporting that contact from pro-choice constituents "back home" is steadily increasing— and NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT TO A SENATOR OR MEMBER OF ! CONGRESS THAN WHAT (S)HE HEARS FROM "BACK HOME"!!! The legislative picture will start to look brighter as the pro-choice majority takes time to let its Members of Congress know—through letters ahd phone calls to Washington, D.C. and to local district j offices—that pro-choice votes are ap- j preciated and anti-abortion votes are noted and WILL MAKE A DIFFER- j ENCE IN THE VOTING BOOTH. 1 them to oppose the Bauman and Voelker Amendments to Senate BUI 1204. Say that you are pro-choice in the matter of abortion and yov vote.

After a splendid start, we are limping along for lack of workers. Rotating troops are needed to make it to June 1982 or final ratification, whichever comes first. Alice Paul gave 50 years for ERA.

ERA presentations were made to LULAC, HCWPC, UFO and Women in Action talk comes up on Monday, March 17. Frances Hicks and Jeanne Saletan invite speakers and accompanists to go with them. Messages are going to all presidential candidates insisting that they make ERA a visible important issue in their campaigns. John Anderson needs encouragement to continue his strong ERA support. Baker and Bush must be told that their weak endorsements just wonft do. As the candidates come through Ho ston we will be out there with voice and with signs saying ERA WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR IT LATELY?
