Hollywood won't guarantee a change
WASHINGTON - Hollywood executives refused to guarantee to lawmaker
yesterday that they would end all marketing of R-rated films to underage auO
ences. Some acknowledged trying to market to children movies made for adults
an effort one studio chief called "a judgment lapse."
A day after the industry released its 12-step plan to stop "inappropritely
specifically" targeting children in advertising R-rated movies, lawmakers derid-
the effort as insufficient and pressed for firmer commitments.
"I don't understand this language. It is filled with loopholes," said Senate
Commerce Committee Chairman John McCain (R-Ariz.), who convened thi
hearing of eight top studio representatives.
Both the Democratic and Republican presidential campaigns weighed in, urg
ing movie makers to take more action.

vice presidential nominee Joseph Lieberman. "They would not say explicitly tha

FDA poised to rule
on abortion pill
WASHINGTON - With a deadline
fast approaching, the Food and Drug
Administration was poised to decide,
perhaps as early as today, the fate of
the long-awaited abortion pill RU-486.
Abortion-rights advocates said
yesterday they expected the pill to be
approved under certain restrictions
designed to ensure women take it
If so, it would be a long-awaited vic-
tory for abortion-rights groups. Anti-
abortion organizations have battled to
keep RU-486 out of the United States
since the drug debuted in France in
1988 - and they pledged Wednesday
to continue fighting the drug if it is sold
Approval has been long expected.
