Abortion rally draws 4,000
LANSING (UPI) - The anti-abortion
movement flexed its muscles yesterday
drawing 3,500 to 4,000 supporters to the
Capitol in the largest demonstration
seen here in at least three years.
"If the crowd today is any indication,
this is the year we're going to be suc-
cessful," Rep. Michael Griffin (D-
Jackson) told the cheering throng that
gathered on the Capitol lawn under
THE KEYNOTE speaker for the
rally, Erma Clardy Craven of Min-
nesota, likened some abortion rights
proponents to "a fascist movement"
and warned of their "genocidal
philosophy." Abortion foes believe
"equal rights" should be extended to
the unborn, she said.
A Senate-passed bill pending in a
House committee would cut off funding
for welfare abortions in Michigan, one
of 14 states that pay for the operations
through their Medicaid programs.
The measure is expected to easily
pass the House, but faces a certain veto
by Gov. James Blanchard. The battle to
override that veto is rated too close to
call at this point.
THE "SAY Yes to Life" rally drew
Marching bands from two Catholic
high schools entertained the crowd.

"I think we're gaining," she said.
"People are starting to listen. It's such
a horrible thing, people used to say 'I
don't want to talk about it.' "
Not far away, 22-year-old Pam Dor-
nbos of Rockford carried a sign reading
"The Unborn Have Rights."
"I JUST had my first baby," she said.

Gina Surline of Lansing, a leader of
Women Exploited by Abortion, told the
crowd abortion is "nothing less than the
supreme glorification of satan."
Surline said she had an abortion eight
years ago and "buried it, never
realizing the hurt and guilt I felt."
"You are-the voice of Michigan and
you speak for the unborn child who
cannot say I want to live," Barb
Listing, President of Right to Life of
Michigan, said in her closing remarks.

From staff and wire reports
LANSING - The chairman of the
House Liquor Control Committee said
yesterday he is optimistic his panel will
approve legislation allowing bars to
limit access by people under 21 years of
"I don't think anyone disagrees with
the concept," said Chairman Stanley
Stopczynski (D-Detroit). "I think from

THE COMMITTEE began con-
sideration of legislation proposed by
Rep. Jelt Stietsema (D-Wyoming),
which would allow bars to prohibit
people under 21 from entering without
parent or guardians.
Currently, under state law and an
opinion from Attorney General Frank
Kelley, people aged 18, 19, and 20 can
enter bars but are not allowed to drink.
Michigan's legal drinking age is 21.
The committee is also considering a
proposal by the state Liquor Control
Commission which sets out conditions
for preventing young people from
coming in. Among those conditions
would be a requirement that only
establishments getting more than half
their money from alcohol could bar
STIETSEMA SAID the current
situation places a burden on bars
because they are prevented from
keeping young people out. The respon-
sibility for keeping youths from
drinking rests with parents, he said.
While there is hope that the bill will
pass, don't expect all local bars to im-
plement the restriction.
Tim Ortbring, bar manager at the
University Club, feels that passage of
such legislation would be unfair to per-
sons between the ages of18 and 21:
"IF A PERSON can vote and be draf-
ted, he should be allowed to go into a
bar," Ortbring said. "Besides, I don't
consider under-age drinking a problem
at the U-Club."
Marshall Greenhut, manager of
Second. Chance, said it would be
unlikely that the bar would impose the
restrictions even if the legislation
"For a bar like us, a rock and roll bar
that caters to the 18-to-23-year-old
crowd, it wouldn't be a wise move
now," Greenhut said.
HE STRESSED THAT none of the
bars in the area willingly sell to minors.
"It's the people over 21 who buy for
minors that cause the problem," he
said. "If someone wants to get alcohol,
they will. This won't solve the
Not all local bars feel the same way
on the issue. Dooley's had raised theage
for entrance to 20, but recently amen-
ded that policy to permit all 19-and20-
year-olds, provided they are University
"For bars it wouldn't be a bad idea,"
said Bernard Knoblich of Dooley's.
"Right now all bars are caught in a cat-
ch-22. If you impose the restriction,
you're liable for a law suit. If you don't,
you're up against the problem of under-
age drinking. You're damned if you do
and damned if you don't."
