Transcript BUSINESS MEETING July 23, 1980 Present were Svie Whitsett, Bonnie Huval, Pat Kuhlmann, Marj Randal, Rema Lou Brown, Jeanne Saletan, Becky Saletan, Lynn McGregor, Marie Stimson Ha Nguyen, Barbara Pollack, Peggy Gook and Susan Lab. From Houston NOW we welcomed Jan Stevens and Leslie Reston. A telephone listing for NOW was discussed and it was decided to have a business phone in the home of Phyllis Tucker which will be hooked up to a phone mate if possible. A motion was passed that Bay Area NOW have a bold face listing at additional cost IF Houston NOW agrees to split the costs of the new phone. Otherwise we will have small face listing in the directory. Costs per month are about $21 exclusive of initial deposit and installation. It may be possible to get State Council to pay installation costs or share operating- costs because Phyllis could use the phone for state business. Houston NOW will discuss at their August 7 meeting and let us know their decision. Rema Lou Brown has the program meeting for October, Lynn McGregor for November. A December program coordinator is needed for the traditional holiday party. Two homes were offered. Motion passed allowing BANOW to be a sponsor on August 26 for the film showing of "Who Remembers Mama?" by the Harris County Women's Political Caucus. This will be an excellent time to buttonhole legislators who will attend. Rema will coordinate. Evie announced need for new PR person. Peggy Cook was congratulated on good job she has done in getting press releases out. Peggy will be band director at High Island High School and departs shortly. Best wishes, Peggy. We also need a person to sell ads for the newsletter. Please inform Dorothy Howard of changes of address and phone numbers. Marie Stimson volunteered to be Task Force Coordinator with Mary Cauk for the women's marathon in November. A fund-raiser at National Conference was discussed. We will share a table with Houston NOW. Peggy Cook is pricing western hats. Bonnie will coordinate the booth for BANOW. Members are asked to give seed money to buy items for sale later. Marj Randal needs your corrected address and phone before new roster is printed in September. Ha Nguyen displayed her striking portrait of Ellie Smeal which catches all of Ellie's sparkle and vitality. Ha plans to present it to Ellie in San Antonio in October. We were reminded to get in our reservations for the National NOW Conference. ********* UNPUBLISHED LETTER TO SATURDAY FORUM HOUSTON CHRONICLE I am uncomfortable with the 1980 Republican platform for two reasons: First it calls for a federal Human Life Amendment with all the evils that a federal anything entails. I don't want any more federal laws bossing me around. Second, the Human Life Amendment in principle does not go far enough in recognizing the true beginning of life in the sperm and ovum. It is hypocrisy to say that life begins only at conception when we know that life is there even before, throbbing and pulsing in our mature sperm and ova. These life-seeds are no less deserving of legal protection that the fetus. EVERY SPERM HAS A RIGHT TO LIFE. Likewise every ovum. Why else did God give us these life-seeds? Why else was Onan punished for spilling his seed upon the ground? Some people, mainly women, simply cannot be trusted to do what is right so we need laws to make them do what we know God intended. Methods can be designed to monitor the fate of the life-seeds and to protect them from abuses by the men and women who carry them within. Monitoring could start at age 11-14, depending on the climate, and be discontinued (thereby saving taxpayer expense) when a person is no longer producing viable seed due to trauma or old age, whichever comes first. Monitoring should apply equally to males and females, allowing no charge of sex discrimination. (letter continued on page 7)
