Transcript By Pat Reed Pro-Family Groups Ink Proposals Amid a revival-type atmosphere filled with cheering and "amens," the Pro-Family advocates Saturday passed four resolutions to send to President Carter that directly conflict with IWY proposals. Pro-Family officials estimated the group in the Astro-Arena at 15,000, with many overflowing into the aisles. Signs in the crowd indicated participants came from across the United States. Officials said many had to be turned away for lack of space. Clay Smothers, a Black state representative from Dallas, said of the rally, "It seems like we're inside a Black Baptist church." Gospel music rang through the arena between speakers. The group passed the following items: That Congress mandate a "right to life" amendment which would protect the life of all people, including children, and fetuses from the moment of conception. A resolution against pre-school child development financed by the federal government and favoring private sector control of day care centers. Opposition to the ratification of the ERA. A resolution against homosexual/lesbian rights, including their right to adopt children and teach in schools. Former Houston Mayor Louie Welch gave the welcome to the Pro-Family rally, saying, "1 believe that the future of this nation depends upon the maintenance of the family as the strongest single unit in our society." U.S. Rep. Robert K. Dornan of California, expressed dismay at the IWY Conference. "The greatest tragedy of all was to see these former first ladies—excuse me, two former first ladies and the current wife of the President of the United States- all sitting properly with their hands in their laps, all dressed according to White House protocal, and, by their very presence along side of (Bella) Abzug, approving of sexual perversion and the murder of young people in America." Lottie Beth Hobbs, president of Women Who Want To Be Women, of Fort Worth, said the Pro-Family advocates and those at the IWY Conference are divided because of a difference in philosophies. She said the "barriers" the Pro-Plan group is seeking to do away with are not "barriers" at all but rather "safeguards." "Wise men and women of the past have carefully built into the system—sacri- ficially built into our system—certain safeguards ..." Removal of those safeguards, Hobbs said, will "plunge us into social and moral destruction." Elizabeth Elliot, an author and former missionary of Hamilton, Mass., said, "I speak for hundreds of Christian women who see sexuality as far deeper than the mere matter of biology ... I believe there is a designer. Our . . . freedom is found in obedience to the designer . . . Liberation rejects authority, the authority we Christians see as divine. To me, this is not a new form of liberation. I see this as a bitter bondage." Nellie Gray, a Washington, D.C. attorney and president of March for Life, said she is "weeping" for the mentality that is now in America. "We have a mentality in America that is anti-life, anti-family, anti-God," Gray said. She said that mentality stems from a "group of special interests who seem to think that it is to their interest. But we know that it is not to the interest of America or the people or the preborn child." In her speech before the rally, Phyllis Schlafly, president of Stop-ERA, of Alton, 111., thanked her husband for "allowing" her to attend the rally. "I love to say that because it irritates the women's libbers more than anything," Schlafly said. m%Cm PHOTO S BY JANICE RUBIN DAILY BREAKTHROUGH NOVEMBER 20, 1977 PAGE 3
