(NC) -- An Indiana law requiring physicians to notify the parents of girls under age 18 before they can have abor- tions has been upheld by a federal district court judge in New Albany. The law was challenged by Planned Parenthood and two gynecologists on the grounds it violated patient-physician confidentialitY and was un- constitutional. Under the law, it is a felony for a doctor to perform an abortion on a girl under age 18; offenders face punishment of up to eight years in jail and $10,000 in fines. The law does not apply to abortions on girls under age 18 who are married or living on their own. U.S. District Court Judge Cale Holder ruled that the law is constitutional and does not violate a right of privacy. He suggested that involving parents in teen-age abortion situations is a good idea.

PAGE 11 )t00igrants Need Assistance Little Rock -- "Several recent events call for a prayerful, honest look at migrant food-farm workers' lives, in general and in Arkansas," officials in the Diocesan Office of Justice and Peace said. Sometime ago, a young Jesuit priest with a Ph.D. in philosophy was moved to say that he could never again preach on the Good Samaritan until he himself served in a way not unlike that of the Good Samaritan. He concluded that migrant workers are the most robbed, beaten, discarded group in the U.S. and he offered to spend two years ministering with them. Closer to home, the Arkansas Gazette Parade cover story (10-10-82) sur- veyed the miserable and oppressed life of many migrants. In DeQueen recently, a group of workers were picked up in a raid and shipped back to Mexico. Their labor had contributed to the financial stability of the area, but it had not gained them consideration or protection. A trial was held in Warren, Ark., Nov. 3-4, charging some of the tomato growers with threatening the life of one of the Catholic migrant ministers, Brother Larry Engel. In their own defense, they charged over and over again that Brother Larry had ceased to minister and was meddling by overstepping his religious bounds by going on the growers' land to assist a migrant worker who wanted to leave. As reported in the Arkansas Democrat (11-7-82), to show support for Brother Larry, Father Joseph H. Blitz of the Diocesan Justice and Peace Office went to the trial two days in succession. Father Biltz said that Brother Larry was part of the church's world-wide program working with the migrant workers who are, he noted, "the poorest of the poor in the world." Father Blitz told the court that Catholic missionaries are not limited to conducting religious services for the workers, "they are supposed to be concerned with the total human condition." For one of the few times during the trial, the audience was quiet, ap- parently stunned at the statements. Father Biltz said that Brother Larry "has an obligation to help the migrant workers even in areas of civil rights and human dignity." In Central America, anyone who works to help the peasants know their own dignity and act for freedom may be tortured and killed. Many church persons, lay, religious and clergy have been murdered for serving the poor. "Civil rights and human dignity are a first concern of those who follow Christ," Father Biltz said. "In this country, migrant workers show the Suffering Face of Christ. Christians can be like Veronica, wipe His Face and comfort Him by assisting farm workers to a more human, fuller life," he concluded. "I have come that they may have life and have it fully." (John 10:10) Opus Dei Personal Prelature Vatican City (NC) -- Pope John Paul II formalized the three-month-old decision to make Opus Dei a personal prelature and named 68-year- old Msgr. Alvaro del Portillo its first prelate. The papal move, first announced Aug. 23 by the Vatican Press Office, means that the international Catholic organization of priests and laity will be guided by the prelate in matters of formation and apostolate but will remain under the direction of local bishops in other aspects of its activities. ,l, Dilhrd's Dillaf'd's Gift FieldcVest's E.T. 0tttbw q31anlLet Stay warm with an E.T. throw blanket 1 A 99 by Fieldcrest!
