Arms
control
,seminar
to meet
today
BY MICHAEL LUSTIG
U.S. and Soviet perspectives on
arms control will be the topic of
discussion at an afternoon seminar
today.
Jonathan Dean, a career foreign
service officer who was U.S.
ambassador to the Mutual Balanced
Force Reduction Talks in 1985 and
is associate director of the Union of
Concerned Scientists, will give the
keynote address at 1 p.m. at Rack-
ham Amphitheater.
Following the speech, several
University professors and other
scholars, including one from the
Soviet Union, will participate in
two panel discussions, one called
"The History of Arms Control" and
the second titled "Recent Develop-
ients and Perspectives for the Fu-
ture."
Matt Gordon, an LSA senior and
coordinator of the conference, said
arms control was selected as the
topic because of recent major devel-
opments, especially with Soviet
Premier Mikhail Gorbachev taking
the lead in negotiations.
Most of the panelists are advo-
cates of bi-lateral disarmament, Gor-
don said. The discussions will
largely be from the U.S. perspective,
he said, but will also be comparative
in nature.
All discussions are free and open
to the public.

Anti-abortionists
plan to strike area
clinics Friday

BY LAURA COUNTS
Good Friday has been designated a
"National Day of Rescue" by
Operation Rescue (OR), a militant
anti-abortion group that tries to shut
down women's health care clinics.
Members of OR announced pub-
licly Monday their plan to "rescue"
- the group's term for its illegal
attempts to forcibly close clinics by
barring women from entering -
three Detroit area clinics Friday.
At 6 a.m. yesterday, members of
the Ann Arbor Committee to Defend
Abortion Rights (AACDAR) gath-
ered at Planned Parenthood in Ypsi-
lanti, where they suspected a
"rescue" to occur, but members of
OR never arrived.
AACDAR members often try to
show up at a clinic before OR
members have time to block the en-
trance, and they also provide escorts
for women with appointments at the
clinic. OR does not release in ad-
vance the locations they plan to
strike.
"The pro-choice forces are mobi-
lizing," said AACDAR member
Joanna Porvin. "We will be there
(Friday) to defend against these egre-
gious attacks on reproductive rights,
and we will be there in larger num-
bers than they have ever seen."
In a typical "rescue," OR mem-
bers sit down in front of a clinic's
doors, while others pray and chant

hymns. When a woman attempts to
enter the clinic, whether for an abor-
tion or not, OR members try to pre-
vent her from entering.
In the past, women have been of-
fered money by OR members for
agreeing not to have an abortion. At
the Summit clinic in Detroit last
year, a brick was thrown through a
window into a room where an abor-
tion was being performed.
Porvin said OR tries to liken its
techniques to the peaceful protests of
the Civil Rights movement, but
"the Civil Rights Movement was to
give people rights, and OR seeks to
take rights away."
Rhonda Laur of AACDAR added
that OR also uses violent methods,
and is almost exclusively white.
The police have the legal duty to
keep businesses open, but Laur said
at previous "rescues," the police
have been in open cooperation with
OR and threatened to arrest AAC-
DAR members.
In response to OR's annouce-
ment, AACDAR has planned a rally
on the Diag Thursday at noon, and
will meet for a clinic defense at 5:30
a.m. Friday at the Cube.
