Transcript Page 4 BROADSIDE/HERIZONS April, 1981 excellent testimony given against the bills. Unfortunately, not everyone was able to give their testimony due to the limited time. We then broke up into small groups and spoke to our respective legislators, and Representatives who were on the committee. We were told that if the bills were in subcommittee, the chances of them reaching the House floor were minimal. It was obvious by the end of the day that we had made our presence known throughout the Capitol and had left a definite impression with our legislators. We left Austin at 5:00 pm with the exhileration that comes from knowing you have done something you are proud of-something you believe in- and have made a difference. Extensive arrangements had been made by everyone for jobs, children, transportation, etc. in order to make this trip. Even though most everyone had been up some 20 hours straight, it was unanimously agreed the effort was worth it, and we would definitely do it again. The bus ride home reflected our pride and sisterhood. It was a truly unique chance to join together in heart and spirit and stand tall for a woman's right to choose. ******************* LEGISLATIVE CONCERNS ***************** Representative Anita Hill of Garland was denied admittance to an all-male private club in Austin (the Citadel) for a business luncheon. As a result, House members voted to attend events only at those places where all State Representatives are admitted. After a two day National Conference NARAL Executive Director, Karen Mulhauser, stated a hit list had been compiled with only one item on it - a constitutional amendment banning abortions. Rep. Ken Riley of Corpus Christi has introduced HCR27 which calls upon Congress to convene a constitutional convention to draft a right-to-life amendment.
