By JAN BENEDETTI
The second congressional dis-
trict's division of the Michigan
Women"s Political Caucus plans
to organize a petition drive at the
University for an abortion refer-
endum on the November, 1972
state election ballot.
According to Nancy Schauer '72,
a member of the caucus, 110,000
signatures of registered voters
have already been collected by
several groups working for abor-
tion reform. But 150,000 more
signatures are needed by March
1 to place the referendum on the
ballot.
If the referendum is approved
by a majority of state voters, the
measure goes directly into law.
The current state abortion law,
dating from 1846, permits an
abortion only to protect the life or
health of the mother, not includ-
ing cases of rape or incest.
The proposed referendum, orig-
inally formulated by the Michi-
gan Co-ordinating Committe on
Abortion Reform states that, "A

physician may perform an abor-
