Transcript 6 may 1979 Gay Austin vol. 3, no. 8 Reproductive Rights Coalition Twenty-five local organizations marked the International Day of Action for Reproductive Freedom on March 31 by announcing the formation of the Coalition for Reproductive Freedom. In a statement announcing its formation, the coalition explained, "We wish to call attention to the threat posed by a small but well organized and well financed group seeking to deny the basic right of choice ... A woman's right to abortion, established by the 1973 Supreme Court decision, must be preserved by resisting attempts to limit the availability of abortion services. We cannot go back to the horrors of illegal abortions and compulsory pregnancy ... On this day of International Action, we especially appeal to lawmakers of the 66th session of the Texas Legislature to be responsive to the needs of women and the right to reproductive freedom." Among the organizations making up the coalition are the Austin Lesbian-Gay Political Caucus, Gay Community Services, Womenspace, the Center for Battered Women, the Texas Abortion Rights Action League, the Black Citizens Caucus, Red River Women's Press, and the Mexican-American Business and Professional Women's Association. V TV Evangelist Fights Cancellation DALLAS - Evangelist James Robison, whose weekly program was dropped by Dallas television station WFAA-TV as a result of an anti-gay sermon (see Gay Austin, April, 1979), has hired a lawyer and asked for a hearing with the Federal Communications Commission in an attempt to have his program reinstated. If the attempt fails, Robison may follow his lawyer's advice and sue the station. Robison's program has been cancelled and reinstated in the past for anti-gay comments, but chances appear slim for his current effort. In accordance with the Communications Act of 1934, the challenge would have to come through the courts. David Lane, station manager of WFAA-TV, says the station has received about 3500 cards and letters concerning the case and that they run 40 to 1 against cancellation of the program. Of the 80 stations broadcasting Robison's weekly sermons, WFAA is the only one to cancel the program. V THE Austin's ONLY Women's Bar Election night; anti-nuke victory narrowly missed. Citizens opposed to Austin's participation in the South Texas Nuclear Project gathered election night to watch the votes being counted and to express their continuing concern. Although early returns indicated defeat for the nuclear power plant, pro-nuke votes edged their way to victory later in the night. Opponents of nuclear power, including many lesbians and gay men, have vowed to continue the struggle June 2 at a rally at the STNP site in Matagorda Bay.
