IS THAT ALL?
(THE ALETHEIA RECENTLY RECEIVED THIS TRUE
LIFE ACCOUNT. WE FELT IT MAY BE OF SOME
INTEREST TO THE READERS OF OUR PAPER.)
The following statement was read
Into the Congressional Record by Chris
Smith (R-NJ) during the recent debate
over the Hyde Amendment. (The
Amendment, which prohibits federal
payment for Medlcade abortions passed
for another year, but only because
pro-abortion opponents let It slip
through unchallenged because they
didn't want to lose a larger bill to
which It was attached.)
The statement Is by Nancy Jo Mann,
founder of Women Exploited by
“1 went in and I asked, ’What are you
going to do to me?" Mann's account of
her abortion begins. "All he (the
abortionist) did was look at my
stomach and say, "I’m going to take a
little fluid out, put a little fluid In,
you'll have severe cr«»nps and expel the

that doctor described to me was not the

way to reverse It. And for the next
hour and a half I felt my daughter
thrash around violently while she was
being choked, poisoned, burned and
suffocated to death. 1 didn't know any
of that was going to happen. And 1
remember talking to her and i
remember telling her I didn't want to do
this. I wished she could live. And yet
she was dying and I remember her very
last kick on her left side. She had no
"I've tried to Imagine that kind of
death, a pillow put over us, suffocating.
In four minutes we'd pass out. We'd
have that gift of passing out and then
dying. But It took her and hour and a
half Just to die.
"Then 1 was given an Intravenous
Injection to help stimulate labor for 12
hours. And at 5:30 AM on the 31st of
October 1 delivered my daughter whose
name Is now Charmalne Marie. She was
14 Inches long. She weighed over a
pound and a half. She had a head of hair
and her eyes were opening.
"I got to hold her because the nurses
didn't make It to the room In time. I
delivered the girl myself. They grabbed
her out of my hands and threw her,
threw her. Into a bedpan."
The story of Mann's abortion, read Into
the record by Smith, penetrated the
rhetorical cloak that conceals the
reality of abortion.

Now that I've got your attention. Just
let me clarify my position. Catholic
with a small "c" simply means
"universal" and I think we all will agree
that Jesus' teachings are and always
will be "universal." I Just used the
phrase as my eye catcher, and It has
obviously worked since you're reading
Anyway, what I really have to say has
absolutely nothing to do with religion,
so I'm going to get off that subject
before I really get In trouble.
What I want to talk about is athletics.
Especially, athletics here at M-AC.
I know It Is a very, very, weak subject
that only athletes and athletic
supporters care about, but I needed an
editorial and this was the easiest one
for me to write.
f have a few basic proposals to make
that I think should get some
consideration. First, It seems that
soccer Is budgeted for the least
amount of money than any of the other
male sports. Why Is that? It would
only make sense, that a school's
"Homecoming" sport be given an equal
amount or even a little more funding In
order to produce a little more.
Furthermore, In the Carolina's, talented
baseball and basketball players are In
abundance, while talented soccer
players are outnumbered at least lO-l.
It would seem logical that the soccer
program would be given as equal a
billing as the other sports since they
need to compete Harder with other
schools ih order to get the players to
present a somewhat competitive team.
To further the subject, athletes on
this campus make up approximately 1/3
of the student body. They get about as
much support as the Contras do. How
can this school expect any of It's
athletic teams to excell In the region,
when they compete against teams
whose athletic budgets are probably 5
times what ours Is? Most teams In the
region probably spend more money on
one sport, than we do on all six of ours.
I think the time has come for M-AC to
recognize that a large percentage of the
student body Is made up of athletes,
and that these athletes should be given
the financial support they need In order
to represent this school In a manner
that would be In the best Interests of
Winning teams and nice athletic
facilities are a top drawing card, and
this school should realize the potential
monetary value associated with both.
