Transcript Dallas County National Organization for Women Box 140158 Dallas, Texas 75214 (214) 748-11 71 VIOLENCE & APATHY NATIONAL LQ DO WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONTROL OUR OWN BODIES ? That is perhaps the most important question we can ask ourselves as women today. For the moment, the answer is a very hesitant - yes. The opposition is well organized, well financed, and dedicated to literally destroying our freedom of choice. And, they are winning. Slowly, but very surely, pro-choice legislators are being replaced by anti-choice fanatics. To quote from the NARAL REPORT: VIOLENCE AGAINST THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE. " These anti-choice fanatics, bent on destroying women's legal right to choose abortion, have unleashed a storm of violence against abortion clinics and contraception counseling facilities across the country. These attacks, which include burnings, bombings and even threats against the children of clinic personnel, show a systematic disregard for human life and property.I! If you will refer to the incident on February 11, 1978 at the end of the report where a six and one-half months pregnant staff member was pushed and kicked, you may be shocked. Don't be! What cannot be accomplished peaceably in the voting booth will, obviously, be dealt with by whatever means deemed necessary by these fanatics. Our reproductive freedom was gained for us by our pioneering sisters of the sixties and early seventies. It was a battle not easily won. Are we going to simply sit in the apathetic distance and watch our freedoms won disappear as those reproductive freedoms of all poor women when government and state funded abortions were cut off ? Will the death of Rosie Jimenez be forgotten and for nought ? Will the rich, once again, fly to distant countries while our poor sisters die from coat hangers and butchers ? No one else will do it! We have to do it! You and I must organize letter writing campaigns that do not stop with only a few letters written, phone banks and trees that bombard our elected officials for months on end, to make very certain that our combined voices are heard long and loud. And we must march, not a few at a time, but en masse, monthly and weekly, if necessary. All this will take enormous energy and time. That most precious commodity; time which will be given at no small cost by us all. It cannot tomorrow our freedoms will our not too distant past. all, is painfully simple, apathy ? Will we lose the for our own bodies to those be put off till tomorrow, for be absent as those freedoms of The question of today, for us Will we answer violence with right of self determination who would control us ? Or, will we stand united and commit ourselves to freedom ? SISTERS, LET'S GO TO WORK !
