Transcript Page 10 BROADSIDE/HERIZONS August, 1981 SHIRLEY M. HUFSTEDLER was born August 25, 1925 in Denver, Colorado. She now lives in Los Angeles, CA. In 1979 she was appointed to head the new Department of Education as a member of President Carter's Cabinet. Before this appointment she was judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals and was the highest ranking woman judge in the United States. ************** A HISTORY OF ABORTION PRACTICES *********** By Yvonne Broach This is the fifth in a series of excerpts from Yvonne's speech regarding past abortion practices. From 1900 through the 1960's, contraception was slowly improved, laws concerning contraceptives somewhat liberal- • ized, and contraceptives became increasingly available and utilized. Abortion remained illegal but by 1973 about one million each year were risking illegal abortions. Those who could afford the high fees could have safe, secret abortions. Those who could not had unsafe, secret abortions, often resulting in infections, hemorrhages, permanent damage to the uterus or death. Psychological suffering was experienced by both kinds of women. While people like Margaret Sanger were crusading for birth control in the early 1900's, the Catholic Church was forming doctrine on contraception and abortion. In 1930 Pope Pius XI issued an encyclical affirming that every act of intercourse is a sin unless performed with reproductive intent, but did approve of the rhythm method of contraception. This position was reaffirmed in 1951 when Pope Pius XII forbade abortion and sterilization as birth control, and in 1958-, 1963, 1966 and 1968. The Catholic Church has remained very forceful in its anti-abortion stance even while a majority of American Catholics, like the majority of Americans, have come to support abortion. *To be continued in the next issue of BROADSIDE/HERIZONS.
