are needed at all women's clinics throughout the country... you know where
they are... Just go... the feeling of actually DOING something is terrific.
Steven Butler, 32, a well-known
anti-freedom-for-women activist has been arrested for assaulting his wife.
Cherie Butler told Livermore, California, police her husband kicked her
in the back of the head. According to court records, he also threw a metal
chair at her that missed but hit their 18-month-old daughter. Butler has
been arrested several times for his anti-abortion actions. Cherie told
police her husband said he would kill her if she told anyone about the
Speaking of violence, if
you'd like to drop a note to Randall Terry, founder of Operation Rescue
and the man who says that we've passed the threshhold of peace, and that
blood must be shed although, he says, he isn't sure whose blood (but we
know now) his address if #05426-031, Dorm A-4, Federal Prison Camp, POB
1000, Montgomery, PA 17752. Be nice, now - the feds open everything. Terry
also believes that we should use birth control. "If WE have babies,
WE have babies," he said ... ignoring the fact that WE don't have
babies, women have (and die of too many) babies.
FROM THE CHOICE-MAIL NET:
-- IMPORTANT --
President Clinton's nomination of Ob/Gyn Dr. Henry
W. Foster as new Surgeon General has ignited anti-choice forces against
the nominee. HUNDREDS of calls have already been placed to protest this
nomination since it was revealed that Dr. Foster has, in the past, performed
a handful of abortions (latest number cited is a dozen, all of which Dr.
Foster explains were related to rape/incest or life of the mother).
Tori also writes that in Halifax (information summarized based on story published in the Victoria Times-Colonist):
It is our pleasure to announce
the introduction of a new list:
BEIJING95-L is a fully moderated

Victims are fighting back
- A man accused of shooting and raping a 15-year-old cross country runner
was sentenced to at least 18 years in prison Wednesday after the victim
confronted him in court and told him he'd pay.
Did you read about the Philadelphia
man who was so "eager" for a family that he payed an agency $30,000
for a surrogate mother to bear his child - and then beat his five-week-old
son to death?
Minneapolis will pay $1.2 million to settle the sex discrimination suit involving more than 300 women who proved the Public Works Department systematically refused to promote women.
We wrote about how the all-woman
crew of the America(3) yacht did racing but failed to mention the *usual*
crap that women have to go through when challenging - on a level playing
field - men's proclaimed superiority.
I am not a sitcom watcher - other than Murphy and Ladies of the House, etc., but Dave's World on Monday night may bring me around. Dave, while hitting all the bases of men's insecurities about their sexual abilities in a humorous but honest way, got a vasectomy. The scene of Dave "in the stirrups" was a classic.
Patricia Johnson, an award winning brokerage house branch manager, has appealed a decision that suspends her from managerial jobs for six months because an underling bilked $114,500 from customers. However, to date nothing has been done to Edward Cerullo who as manager profited by a nice sum of $20 MILLION (and is keeping it) when one of his underlings, Joseph Jett declared false sales of $350 million... Elaine Ullian, 46, is the new president and CEO of the prestigious Boston University Medical Center Hospital. She had gained a national reputation for breast-cancer-treatment program at Faulkner Hospital... Discounting claims of reverse discrimination and claiming it's just a correction of years of injustice, Albany, N.Y. residents have approved a revised county charter that uses she instead of he as the gender-neutral references. For example, the job description of the county executive now reads: "Her terms of office..."
According to the U.N., women
are just 28% of the work fource, but official figures in Africa, for example,
tally only formal, salaried work - although women farmers produce between
60% and 80% of the continent's food and dominate the street markets.
