Transcript tween the two groups that have battled lor years over abortion rights: those who insist on priority for the "right to life" of fetuses, and those whose first priority is a pregnant woman's "right to choose" what she does with her body. But the controversy has moved well beyond abortions, and now ranges over all facets of maternal and fetal health throughout pregnancy. "Any woman of child-bearing years has to experience a real sense of alarm at this," said Janet Gallagher, an attorney who is head of the civil liberties program at Hampshire College. "There are those," she added, "who are very seriously proposing restraints on all women at every stage of pregnancy. It is based on a set of punitive attitudes toward women." The new technology, she argues, is providing "a new scientific gloss for very old attitudes about women, that they contribute very little to pregnancy, except as a receptacle or a 'seed garden.'" On the other side, Dr. Bernard N. Nathanson, a New York City obstetrician and gynecologist and one of the leading medical spokesmen of the "right- to-life" movement, argues that there must be "mandatory intervention" in pregnancies where it is "a case of fetal life or death. " Doctors, he contends, have an ethical duty to pursue "life-saving measures for the unborn child." Nathanson has given the fetal rights movement some of its most colorful — and strongest — rhetoric. He talks of the fetus as "an uneasy tenant for nine months in the mother's body," and as a person spending "nine months of exile" in an "immunological sanctuary," protected from the pregnant woman when her 'white cells mount an attack" to reject the fetus. Such phrases, he says, are used "to distinguish the child from being a part of the mother s body, like an appendix." Up to now, the new controversy has been raging primarily in professional journals, in research papers circulating in private, and at medical and legal conferences. But a few precedents have been set in court, and their meaning and importance is debated just as heavily as is the underlying controversy. Fire at abortion clinic ruled arson Post News Services MESQUITE — A fire that destroyed an abortion clinic in this Dallas suburb has been ruled arson and is being investigated as the possible work of an anti-abortionist, officials said Saturday. Meanwhile, police in Bridgeport, Pa., arrested 51 anti-abortion demonstrators from nine states after the protesters stormed an abortion clinic and occupied it, authorities said. The Mesquite fire, which was reported about 10:30 p.m. Friday, destroyed the Women's Clinic of Mesquite Inc. and nine other offices in the one-story building. The clinic had received several threatening phone calls over the past few months, and anti-abortion groups regularly picket outside, officials said. The fire gutted the building and caused more than $1.5 million in damage, fire Capt. Robert Lovell said. ■13-
