Opinions. on -abortion :aired an Pit debate
By DANA CLINTON LUMSDEN
UNC students and community
members debated abortion Tuesday
at a rally in the Pit sponsored by a
UNC pro-choice group, Activating
Awareness for Choice and Equality
The rally included five speakers
and an open forum , in which pro
choice and anti-abortion speakers
were given a chance to voice their
opinions on the subject.
The first speaker was Joe Herzen
berg, a member of the Chapel Hill
Town Council. Herzenberg said he
couldn't believe that some men felt
it was their right to tell a woman what
to do with her body.
"I stand in disbelief on how men
try to control a woman's right to an
abortion," he said. "Abortion is not
really a political-issue. For those who
oppose abortion, it's a religious issue
as far as they are concerned. I
question the right of Congress to
make a law upon religious grounds."
Denny Worley, a senior from
Canton, said he attended the pro
choice march in Washington, D.C.,
and was happy with the number of
participants from UNC. "We at UNC
need to express our belief that a
woman should be allowed to have a
choice," Worley said.
Another speaker was Stephen
Mumford, an abortion rights activist
who has written several books and
articles about the subject. Mumford
spoke about abortion as a religious
and population issue. "It (the
Catholic Church) is only opposed to
legalized abortion, not illegal abor
tion," Mumford said. "In Mexico and
Brazil abortions take place, but the
bishops don't speak about them.
Bishops are only opposed to legalized
After the speakers finished, the
podium was opened to speakers from
the audience. Some of the speakers
had opposing views. One of these
speakers was Tom Jackson, a recent
graduate from Black Mountain. "I'm
not actively involved in the anti
abortion issue or Operation Rescue
(an anti-abortion organization), but
I know that I and many other
Christians will be praying as the
Supreme Court deliberates tomor
row," he said. "It is unbelievable how
a 5-month-old baby can live but many
states have legal abortions well after
"In the 1800s, the Supreme Court
said that blacks weren't people. They
can definitely change their mind, and
I think they will here."
The president and founder of
AACE, Tania Malik, a senior from
JCinston, said the purpose of the
organization is to support awareness
and present a different opinion since
the Supreme Court is deciding many
important cases dealing with the
"Being pro-choice doesn't mean
that you're pro-abortion," she said.
"It just means that we're for the right
