terpretations and clarifications,"
he said. "But in the end, it's not
going to impair the things we
normally do to maintain contact
with members of Congress."

world, he said, "has never really

Nasty
Surprise

Pro-choice legislators were
caught off guard by provisions in
the recently enacted Telecom-
munications Reform Bill that
might prohibit the dissemination
of information about abortion on
the Information Superhighway.
And that has led to an outcry
from Jewish politicians and or-
ganizations.
That bill, which deregulates
much of the cable television in-
dustry and bans the distribution
of pornography on the Internet,
was signed by President Bill
Clinton last week.
Tucked away in the massive
measure is language applying
portions of a 1909 law prohibit-
ing the dissemination of obscene
materials — and information
about abortion.
Pro-choice legislators didn't
even notice the controversial lan-
guage until just before final pas-
sage, when it was too late to
block the bipartisan measure.
"This provision is very broad,
and its scope is unclear," said
Rep. Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., a lead-
ing Jewish legislator and pro-
choice voice.
"This ban will have a chilling
effect on the rights of millions of
Americans."
Rep. Lowey also argued that
the measure is unclear: does it
apply to all discussion of abor-
tion on the Internet — or only to
information about "unlawful"
abortions? That ambiguity rep-
resents a serious threat to free-
dom of speech, she said.
After the bill's passage, Rep.
Lowey engaged in a "colloquy"
with Rep. Henry Hyde, R-Ill., the
chair of the House Judiciary
Committee, in which Rep. Hyde
formally agreed that "any dis-
cussion about abortion is pro-
tected by the First Amendment
guarantee of free speech Noth-
ing in this title should be inter-
preted to inhibit free speech
about the topic of abortion."
That colloquy does not have
the force of law. But Lowey hopes
that it will provide a legislative
record to help pro-choice forces
when they challenge the new
provisions in court.
A number of Jewish groups
condemned the anti-abortion
provision, including the Anti-
Defamation League and the Na-
tional Council of Jewish Women.
