Transcript N.O.W. DEMANDS ABORTION RIGHTS FOR ALL WOMEN Monday, January 23, 1978, was a miserably cold, windy, and rainy day in downtown Houston, but members of Houston Area N.O.W. and friends from Southwest and Bay Area N.O.W. chapters turned out at noon to leaflet and picket outside the Federal Building. The occasion was the fifth anniversary of the Supreme Court decision that the Constitutional right of privacy did indeed include the right of a woman to terminate an unwanted pregnancy. We were on that cold, wet corner to demonstrate our unshakeable support for that right to choose. We were also there to demonstrate our opposition to the Hyde Amendment, a measure passed just recently by our almost exclusively male Congress. By cutting off federal funds for those most in need of help, poor women faced with an unwanted pregnancy, these members of Congress, Bill Archer and Bob Gammage among them, demonstrated their insensitivity, unresponsiveness, and disregard for the rights of these women. To remind them of their responsibility to represent the interests of all of their constituents impartially and also to remind them of their responsibility for the resumption of back-alley abortions and dangerous home remedies, we left a copy of our leaflet at the offices of the two Congressmen. There is a very strong move underway in this country by right-wing religious and political groups to outlaw freedom of choice altogether with a constitutional amendent banning all abortions.* The poor have been the first target and are the first victims. The attack on women's reproductive rights will continue. Write your national and state representatives and senators to support the right of all women, regardless of income, to control their own bodies. Until the need for abortion in our society no longer exists, it must be safe and legal. Linda Jones *See "Are We Rest of the 25 Votes Away From Losing the Bill of Constitution?" in the February, 1970, Rights ... And Ms. Magazine. the men got pregnant, Congress would open its own abortion clinic.
