Transcript Good News & Bad News HOUSTON EMERGENCY ROOM PHYSICIANS SERVICE Members of HRCC met with representatives of the Houston Emergency Room Physicians Service on April 24 to discuss treatment of rape victims in the hospitals they serve. It was learned that there is no hospital policy preventing treatment of rape victims; instead, the decision is largely left to the individual physician. However, at the meeting many objections were raised by the physicians. These ranged from "rape victims are not an emergency" to "let someone else do it." There are some Houston area doctors who are sympathetic to the problems of rape victims and more than willing to examine and treat. But for the most part, though, there is no guarantee that a rape victim will be treated in hospitals other than Ben Taub and Hermann. Anyone interested in working on this problem should call the Women's Center, 524-5743, to volunteer. Someone will return your call. PRESBYTERIANS SUPPORT HOUSTON RAPE CRISIS COALITION Rev. John Wimberly, a friend and advocate for HRCC, presented a resolution to the Gulf Coast Presbytery. This group had representatives from United Presbyterian Churches in Southeast Texas and Louisiana. The resolution passed unanimously. It read: "....the Gulf Coast Presbytery supports the Houston Rape Crisis Coalition's efforts to aid and help rape victims through a time of personal TENNECO SEMINARS Tenneco Oil Company took a giant step forward in demonstrating concern for its employees. A series of seminars on rape was presented under the direction of the Texas Rape Prevention and Control Project with assistance from Houston Rape Crisis Coalition. The seminar reached over 800 women and was received with great enthusiasm. In addition, Tenneco asked for permission to reprint HRCC's brochure for distribution among their employees and families of employees. We applaud Tenneco's efforts and hope that other companies will take the same initiative in helping their employees learn about rape prevention. For information on this project contact Bette Anne Knoll, 524-5743 INDIANAPOLIS WORKSHOP Summer Milton, coordinator of the advocates program, attended a workshop "Rape: One City's Approach," in Indianapolis, Indiana, May 17-20. We are looking forward to many helpful ideas and approaches. Look for Summer's reports in future newsletters and at meetings.
