Doug Johnson of the National Right to Life Committee talks about a Constitutional Ammendment to ban abortion. As you know, a Constitutional Ammendment requires a 2/3 vote in each House and of the state legislatures. We don t have 2/3 in either of the houses for a Constitutional Ammendment right now. That remains our ultmiate goal I think that the Supreme Court decision on abortion has never been so precarious. We feel that it s likely that in the not distant future it is likely that the decision will be overturned by the court itself.

Bill Hamilton, Planned Parenthood representative speaks about anti-abortion movement. I think what we have is an anti-abortion movement that has failed to achive its real intention. That is here we are 12, 13 years after the Supreme Court knocked down the abortion laws and abortion is still widely available and safe and legal. Having failed at that, and having really no prospect in the short run of obtaining that goal, they re sort of engaging in a form of gurellia warfare.

Doug Johnson of the National Right to Life Committee, We don t regard that these issues we are prusing in the Congress as perhipherial or symbolic issues. Prior to enactment of the Hyde Amendment, for example, the federal governement was paying for abortion on demand through the Medicaid program, 300,000 abortions a year. Now the federal government pays only for life of the mother abortions, abortions necessary to save the life of the mother, which amount to less than 300 a year.

Barbara Radford, head of the National Abortion Federation speaks about abortion. The anti-abortin forces in this country have become very active in terms of talking about what abortion procedures are like, who women are that have abortions, and frankly telling lies and decieving people about a lot of that. My organization as an organization of abortion providers has decided to go out across the country and talk to people in workshop formats like the one we are putting on today, about what abortion is. (Shots of people in a confrence room attending the workshop) What happens durign an abortion? How long does it take? What doteh instruments look like? What can a woman expect to feel, both during the procedure and before and after?

Bill Hamilton, Planned Parenthood representative, People don t like it. People don t want an abortion clinic nextdoor. They don t want their daughters to have an abortion. They may think it s immoral. They may even think it s murder, some of them. But when all of that is said and done they still come down to the basic question, that is who is going to make the decisions. Is it going to be up to the individual humn beings to decide in the context of their own circumstance or is the governement going to make that decision. And nobody wants the governmetn to make it.

Senator Lowell Weicker (R - Connecticut) I fully expect that the 1986 elections will continue the trend that you saw in the 84 elections when it comes to the Congress of the United States. And that trend is away from those who are anti-abortion, anti-choice.
