Transcript financially, and/or socially compulsory for women to accept a childbearing role that they did not want, could not afford, or were not physically or psychologically suited for. Did the dream of freedom of choice really come true? The answer is both yes and no. A new consciousness did begin to rise in the land in the minds of hundreds of thousands of women and men. Children should be wanted; women should decide their own destiny? to be or not to be a parent should be an individual act of conscience. At the same time, however, a hard-core, well-financed, politically-motivated and inspired entity began to emerge and play on the passions of those who were bewildered by the change or did not understand the concept of personal choice or who found the new freedom an affront to their religious or moral beliefs. Poor women were the first to lose the freedom of choice, an act of Congress no less. Clinics, doctors, the pregnant women themselves were harrassed and intimidated. The call went out for a constitutional amendment that would prohibit all abortions. States were targeted, Texas one of them. The steamroller continued. This story does not need to end as it seems it must. Houston Area N.O.W. has endorsed and supports a series of workshops that will take place Saturday, January 20, 9«3° a.m.- 5«00 p.m. in room 116 of the Science and Research Building of the University of Houston. The topic will be the freedom of choice and what we can all do to preserve it. Speakers will include Father Joseph O'Rourke, national head of Catholics for Free Choice; Patricia Beyea, director of the ACLU Campaign for Choice, and others. Workshops will cover many topics and will feature such contributors as Dr. Nikki Van Hightower and Billie Carr. For information or an offer to help, call Joan Glantz There will be a $3 registration fee.
