PROPOSES PLAN AFFECTING 100,000 POOR:

HEW blasts forced sterilization

PRODUCERS AND DIRECTORS
Needed
to work with new theatre company doing mime,
children's theatre, improvisations, etc.

(Continued from Page 1)
The new regulations would flatly
prohibit federal payment for hyster-
ectomies performed solely to steri-
lize a woman. But Califano said the
Iinal rule may include, "narrow
exceptions to this prohibition" if
doctors or others can show that there
are any "specific unusual circum-
stances" in which a hysterectomy
was the proper method of steriliza-
tion.'
"There are other simpler proce-
dures that are much safer than

hysterectomies," said Califano. He
added that 250 women per 100,000 die
from complications during hysterec-
tomies, while the death rate from
other forms of sterilization is only 10
per 100,000.
"THE PROMISCUOUS nature of
sterilization is something that seems
to be directed largely at the fe-
males," said Califano.
As many as 700,000 hysterectomies
are performed annually in the United
States, according to government esti-

mates. Medical experts say hysterec-
tomies should be performed only
when cancer or some other disorder
requires removal of a woman's
uterus.
The Planned Parenthood organiza-
tion estimates that more than one
million American women undergo
sterilization operations annually.
They estimate that several hundred
thousand more men undergo vasec-
tomies annually.
OTHER FORMS OF sterilization

for women include tubal ligation and
laparoscopic tubal . sterilization,
which are both much simpler than
hysterectomies.
The standards would apply to all
sterilization procedures paid for by
Medicaid, Medicare and by HEW
funded family planning programs, as
well as in hospitals and clinics run by
the Public Health Service and the
Indian Health Service.
Califano called for public comment
on the proposed regulations during
the next 90 days.
