Transcript ;TBbe Houston Post/WoA, Fdb. Abortion Both sides plan renewed push before final ruling By MARKSAUKB Port Reporter Those on both sides of the volatile abortion issue vowed to step up campaigns to get their respective argumenfe to the public before the U.S. Supreme Court makes a final ruling on its decision Tuesday that the government must resume funding abortions tor the poor. The ruling was greeted In Houston in a predictable fashion, with pro-abortion groups delighted and anti-abortion groups dismayed. The high court ruling came pending full-scale review of the issue before the end of the current court term. ' "We are outraged by the ruling," said Robert Powell, vice president of the Texas Right to Life Committee. "The power of the purse belongs to our elected officials, not to the courts. A majority has shown through their elected representatives that Americans do not want to pay tor abortion on demand and now the Supreme Court has usurped their power and said, 'You not only will tolerate it (abortions), you will pay for it,' " he said. "WE BELIEVE AID to the poor should be in the form of food and housing, not help for killing their babies," Powell said. Phyllis Van Kerrebrook, president of the board of Houston Planned Parenthood, afc plauded the ruling tor its broad definition of medically necessary abortions. "This definition is much more liberal than what we have now, but it could be more re strictive than the origteaimSop ruling allowing abortfco on demand because the term medkmUy wxvmtT was not -hv eluded in that," Van S&rebrook said "We believe (the$nll!ig) reinforces the constitutional rights ol religious freedom and equal protection undrf. the law. We hope it will become permanent when the court makes its final decisifi'' she said. \ Tuesday's action temporarily upheld the decision of U.S. Dikrict Judge John Dooling of New York City&rho last month struck down the so-called jfcyde Amendment, a congressional restricts* on federal spending for Medicaid abortions..^ UNDER COOLING'S RULING, Medicaid money must be available for all eligible women seeking "medically necessary" abortions — a definition, pooling took beyond physical health to include the best interest of a woman's mental and social well-being. The Most Rev. John L. Morkovsky, Roman Catholic bishop of the Galveston-Houston Diocese, said he was saddened by the ruling. "With the conviction that abortion is the killing of an infant, I find it most deplorable that the Supreme Court considers killing a right that must I* provided by tax funds for some members of our society," he said. "It is so contrary to the principles on which our nation was founded —- that human beings deserve dignity and the undeniable right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," the bishop said. JOAN GLANTZ, SPEAKING for the American Civil liberties Union which favors abortion oa demand, called Dooling "coura- geous lot not letting rejigtogs biasee |a|prfentf with his Judgment "Judge Dooling ©we this case a most tho ough hearing, fee listened to all sorts of per spectivw on the matter and hedecided to deprive (a poor woman) of an abortion to perpetuate a form of religious discrimina tion," Glantz said "Congress has to be educated. Apparent they feel it's OK to put a lot of tax money into taking care of poor people but a much less expensive meafcufe to honor a wbman'ST decision to have an abortion is not OK," she said. Jerome Chapmati, a commissioner with the Texas Department of Human Resources — the agency which administers federal- funds for abortions —said he was awaiting a telegram from the Department of Health, Education and Welfare late Tuesday direct lng how soon such funding will become available. "I ASSUME WE WILL GO back to the system we used before the Hyde Amendment and that is when a physician felt an abortion was necessary, another physician was consulted and then the case was then taken to our medical department for what was essentially a third opinion," he said. "We have always been rather cautious about this." Chapman said the matter could be acted on by his agency's board of directors this week through an emergency action.
