Transcript ERA RALLY—COUNTDOWN FOR ! 82 Get out your "GREEN & WHITE" liberation uniform and wear it to Houston City Hall, Tuesday, June 30th# We will gather at 11:30 and be there till approximately 1:30 to mark the fact that we have but 3&5 days to complete ratification of the ERA* Texas is NOT truly an ERA state until we have the other 3 states that we need by June 30, 1982. Bring the children and help to educate the public—we will not go away and we will not give up! AN. EVENING FOR PRO CHOICE: TARAL is holding an appreciation night to recognize those who helped—Representatives Clint Hackney, henry Allee, Al Luna. El Franco Lee, Debra Danburg, Craig Washington, Paul Colbert, Ron Wilson, and ED WATSON as well as Lt. Gov. Bill Hobby. The celebration will be June 26 (everything is June 26 for some reason) at 11135 South Country Squire (South of I 10, West of Voss Road, and North of Memorial Dr.) Featured speakers will be Jan Friese, TARAL Exec. Director, and John Henry Faulk, humorist, civil rights activist, and TARAL Board member. The 8 pm gathering asks a $5*00 donation and will have a cash bar. For information call Helen Rosen, 723-1826. [Go to convention if at all possible, but, if you can't, then go and give ED WATSON a reassuring pat on the back—we've seen signs of wavering and maybe this will demonstrate support for a continued strong stand.] If you go to convention, call him and congratulate him and;thank himi Women s coalition steps up fight against human lite bill Women's coalition forms to oppose conservative trend A women's coalition Tuesday announced formation of the "Reproductive Rights Campaign'' designed to oppose the anti-abortion movement credited with forcing the recent closing of the abortion clinic at Jefferson Davis Hospital. While maintaining the "Moral Majority" is only a minority, leaders of the group said at a news conference the closing of the county abortion clinic was just the first step in a movement to !decriminalize" abortions. Jeanne Saletan, chairwoman of the Women's Lobby Alliance, said the movement intends to educate women and "mobilize" them against the proposed Human Life Amendment. The proposed constitutional amendment seeks to redefine the term "person" in the 14th Amendment to apply from the moment of conception. The women's alliance — an umbrella organization representing 16 women's groups with memberships totaling 17,000 people in the Houston area — was formed in response to the conservative outcome of last year's elections. The alliance was active in lobbying efforts during the legislative session. In addition, it is active in a variety of women's issues and services. Saletan said the group is seeking volunteers. "We need to impress people to wake up now/'said board member Joan Greiner. "There's a trfcnd to infiltrate freedoms by moral beliefs." Since the abortion clinic at Jefferson Davis Hospital was closed, indigent women have been referred to private clinics, said Pat Lane, an alliance board member and head of the Texas Abortion Rights Action League. Triggered by Harris County Commis- sioners Court's recent-decision* to stop funding the abortion clinic in-Jefferson Davis Hospital, an umbrella group for 16 area women's organizations'has stepped up its campaign to oppose anti-abortionists who support the, *'humai> life'' bill before Congress. .The Women's Lobby '81 Alliance, representing about 17,000 people in the Houston area, hopes to educate the public on the "legal and social implications" of Senate Bill 158 and its House companion; H.R: 900, which defines life as beginning with conception, Jeanne Saletan, co-chairwoman of the alliance, said Tuesday. The bill, which would criminalize abortions, is an "assault on poor women," she said. The alliance is training speakers to discuss the bill with area civic and community groups and hopes to draw- others into its pro-abortion fold and to publicize widely its opposition to the bill, Ms. Saletan said. "We are presenting an alternative to the so-called right-to-life movement which captured a 3-2 majority of Commissioners Court, resulting in the closing of the only abortion service available to poor women in Harris County," Ms. Saletan said. The right to an abortion was granted in a 1973 U.S. Supreme Court decision, she said. She said the alliance is awaiting a decision on the abortion clinic closing from Texas Attorney General Mark White, asked by the Harris County Hospital District to review the matter. The alliance includes six chapters of the. National Organization for Women, the Harris County Women's Political Caucus, Texas Abortion Rights Action League, American Civil Liberties Union, Gay Po* iitical Caucus, Women's Group at First Unitarian Church, Women's Equity Action League, Houston Area Women's Center, Coalition of Labor Union Women,* Sisterhood of Temple Emanu EllE Women's Law Association at the Univer-! sity of Houston and the Coalition roft Women's Art Organizations.
