(Continued from page 1) ,
the possibility of false advertis-
ing.
The advertisements appearing
in The Daily, for exampe, pro-
vide only the name of the serv-
ice and a phone number.
One agencyhclaims in their ad
there is no charge for its abor-
tion referrals.
This same agency, which
charges $225 for the abortion,
asks for a $25 deposit to be sent
to them and the additional $200
to be paid directly to the hos-
pital.
A major criticism of the agen-
cies is directed at the actual re-
ferral fee as well as at the al-
legedly false advertising.
"We are concerned that women
are paying these fees when they
can get the same service through
the University at no cost," says
one University woman.
The amount of the fees charged
by commercial agencies and the
fact the fees are not widely pub-
licized and readily disclosed are
principle concerns of Mindell and
the others investigating the re-
ferral services.
"The referral agencies," Min-
dell says, "don't disclose their
referral fee which can be as high
as 25 per cent of the package
price, and sometimes is higher
than the fee the doctor gets for
actual abortion."

Mindell adds that the fees
'ange from $25 to over $150 for a
referral. .
Most agencies surveyed by The
Daily collect the fee by requiring
that a deposit be sent before they
will make an appointment. Once
the agency receives the deposit
the final arrangements are
made. The balance of the cost
is then paid to the hospital or
clinic.
Some doctors charge that be-
cause the referral is based pri-
marily on a woman's' physical
condition and only partly on her
financial situation, a telephone
referral made by a layman might
be practicing of medicine without
a license.
"I don't think ideally even a
doctor can decide over the phone
what type of abortion operation
a woman should have," says Dr.
Robert Hall, associate professor
of gynecology and obstetrics at
Columbia University's medical
school.
The Daily survey reveals that,
generally, when a woman calls
one of the agencies she is im-
mediately asked how niany
weeks pregnant she is. The phone
operator uses this information to
determine the method of abortion
to be used, and whether the wo-
man will have to spend time in
a hospital.

One agency also offers the
choice of a general or local anes-
thetic and said this would dleter-
mine whether an overnight stay
in a hospital would be required.
The explanation given by this
agency as a guide to choosing
one method or the other was, "If
you are a baby about pain you
should probably choose a general
anesthetic."
An additional question under in-
vestigation is whether the doc-
tors and hospitals return part of
the abortion fee to the referral
service.
Should this be true these agen-
cies would then be aiding doc-
tors in participating in an illegal
practice called fee splitting.
Many of the referral agencies,
however, view themselves as
community services.
"We are a private organization
providing a necessary service to
women," comments the execu-
tive director of one agency.
"We've done nothing wrong."
She says her agency has referred
22,000 women since July.
Although she would not give a
definite price for either the abor-
tion or the agency's fee, she says
the charge varies depending on
the particular case and the medi-
cal services required.
"We have women pay the en-
tire fee to us and then we pay the

hospital," t h e spokeswoman
adds.
She also says she does" not un-
derstand the charge that the ag-
encies are practicing 'medicine
without a license.
"We don't practise medicine,"
she claims. "We don't prescribe
any medication and we don't ask
medical information."
Lefkowitz's recommendations,
to either regulate or outlaw these
agencies will concern future poll-
cies toward regulation of the
services, or establishment of ef-
fective alternative means of pro-
viding this much-needed service
to out-of-state women.
The non-profit organizations
providing free referral claim to
be presently overworked. Family
Planning reports that its 12 per-

sOil abortion counseling staff
handles over 6,000 calls a month.
One possible solution, proposed
by the Abortion Rights Associa-
tion of New York, calls for the
establishment of a referral serv-
ice under the auspices of the
New York State Department of
Health.
All doctors and abortion facili-
ties willing to perform abortions
at reasonable prices, spokesmen
say, would enroll with this serv-
ice.
Mindell declines to comment
on specific alternatives until
Lefkowitz publicly announces his
decisions.
He did say, however, that Lef-
kowitz will propose ^oncrete mea-
sures to implement his recom-
mendations.

AT HI-F

BUYS?

DEAR FELLOW CITIZENS:
A Russian company of Siberian dancers is appearing this Sat-
urday evening, March 27th, at Hill Aud. in Ann Arbor. At the same
time, cultural expression continues to be denied to the three million
Jews of the Soviet Union. We hope that you will inform yourselves
of the plight of this minority and join us in our protest against this
and all other forms of cultural repression in the USSR.
The ruthlessness of Soviet authorities in suppressing literary
and artistic creativity is too well known to need documenting. We
call on everyone concerned to remember those whose cultural dis-
tress cries out to us.
