Capt. Richard Murray, who plans to

had attracted several hundred
students. Five felony warrants were
issued charging organizers of the
parties with selling alcohol without
a license, a charge carries a
maximum penalty of a year
imprisonment and a $1,000 fine.
"This isn't a question of inviting
your friends over for a party. This is

State Senate rules
abortion requires
parental consent

LANSING (AP) - Anti-abortion
legislation to require young women
to get their parent's permission in
order to obtain an abortion easily
sailed through the Michigan Senate
yesterday.
The chamber adopted a handful of
amendments to ease the abortion re-
striction slightly, but rejected several
others that would have made it easier
for a young woman to obtain an
abortion.
The measure passed the Republi-
can-controlled chamber on a 29-8
vote and now goes back to the
Democrat-run House.
Backers feel they have the votes
in that chamber to pass the bill
there, too, although it's uncertain
whether the House would vote to
override an expected veto be Demo-
cratic Gov. James Blanchard.
The bill, sponsored by Sen. Jack
Welborn, R-Kalamazoo, is the first
anti-abortion legislation to advance
in Michigan since the U.S. Supreme
Court on July 3 gave the states more
power to restrict abortions.
"I'm very pleased with the way
the bill came out today. We weren't
taking a hard-nosed position. This is
a parents-rights issue," said Sen.
Fred Dillingham, R-Fowlerville and
chairperson of the committee that
approved the bill last week.
"I think it's probably inegood
shape. We're satisfied with the way
it is," agreed Barbara Listing, presi-
dent of Michigan Right to Life,
which pushed for the bill's passage.
Howard Simon, executive director
of the American Civil Liberties
Union in Michigan, criticized the
measure.

"I hope the public isn't suckered
into thinking that this is a family
rights bill," he said. "The issue is
forcing unwanted pregnancies to the
term."
The bill would require a young
woman, age 17 or less to get a par-
ents' written consent to obtain an
abortion.
If the parents refused or the child
couldn't discuss the matter with
them, she could seek a juvenile court
order allowing the abortion.
The minor could go to court in
any county, and the court would
have to help her prepare and file a
petition. An attorney would be pro-
vided the girl, and the court would
have to act on the petition within 48
hours. The court would be required
to grant a waiver of parental consent
if if found the girl was mature
enough to make a decision or if it
found "the abortion would be in the
interests of the minor."
Parental consent wouldn't be re-
quired in an emergency, meaning
where the continued pregnancy
would endanger the girl.
Successful amendments to the
bill included ones to clarify that
birth control devices aren't banned
by the bill and to permit a doctor to
act on behalf of a teen seeking an
abortion.
"It would allow parents, regard-
less of theirown character to have
ultimate control over another per-
son's life," said Sen. Lana Pollack,
D-Ann Arbor. She predicted that if
the bill becomes law, "we're going
to see a significant increase in the
number of babies having babies."

Several student groups will be asked this
week to join a coalition to study financial aid and
tuition increases at the University.
Members of the Michigan Student Assem-
1y's External Relations Committee (ERC) pro-
iposedithe committee to pressure the University
administration to "see that financial aid is kept at
a level that meets the needs of students" and pre-
vent tuition from rising too quickly.

its state budget request, which includes a provi-

to meet University needs.
The coalition would work to gather feed back
from students and provide it to the administra-
tion, said ERC member Jeff Veach, an LSA se-
nior.

this is a main issue... that it is one of our most
important concerns," Veach said.
The ERC will contact members of various
groups this week and hopes to get the coalition
off the ground within two weeks, said Matt We-
ber, chair of the External Relations Committee.
The committee also discussed plans for the
Big Ten Student Association and the American
Association of University Students conferences,
which will be held simultaneously at Purdue
University in November.
