He said the purpose of the service is
not to encourage abortions but to offer
compassion and to increase the freedom
of women with problem pregnancies.
"Some women may want to have the
baby but may be unable to do so for
economic reasons," he said. "In such
instances, we may be able to put women
in touch with an adoption agency or a
home for unwed mothers.

One of the least enjoyable aspects of
debating is tle time necessary for

McGuire put in eight hours a day for one
month preparing their debate files. Also,
the amount of time spent in travel and in
keeping the files up to date adds up.
Loveland estimates that thev spend two
hours a day on debating even when they
are not at tournaments.

Riddle said the tragedy is that such
women "are seeling out back-alley
butchers and others who charge
exorbitant fees" when they could be
cared for by licensed physicians in this
state under the law.
"We hope that we will be able to give
women the names of physicians in their
own communities who will perform the
operation and thus protect the women
from illegal, dangerous or expensive
abortionists," he said.
The North Carolina abortion law
passed in 1967 made abortions legal
"when there is substantial risk that
continuance of the pregnancy would
threaten the life or gravely impair the
health of the mother."
But the effect of the law has been
minimal, according to a study made
recently by the Department of
Biostatistics at UNC.
Riddle said his group has been formed
because women today "are forced by
ignorance, misinformation and
desperation into courses of action that
require humane concern on the parts of
religious leaders and others in society."
State Rep. Arthur Jones, who
authored the 1967 law, has said that the
"benefits" of the law have been
negligible almost nil.
Dr. Jaroslav Hulka, associate director
of the North Carolina Population Center
and an authority on therapeutic
abortions, has estimated that criminal
abortions exceed legal ones 100 to 1.
If the state abortion law, wnicn is
presently being challenged in federal
court, were declared unconstitutional, it
would not eliminate the need for a
counseling service, Riddle said.
'There would continue to be large
numbers of women, especially poor
women, who would not be aware of the
-alternatives open to them," he said.
Riddle added, "We are just scratching
the surface. We. and the hospitals have
only fulfilled a small part of the need."
