Administrators at the University of San Diego canceled an on-campus political conference last month because of their concern that state Sen. Lucy Killea's involvement would be an affront to Catholic Bishop Leo T. Maher, whose clash with Killea over the abortion issue generated a national controversy last fall. Revelation of the cancellation has brought criticism from Catholic theologians and others who called the action an infringement of academic freedom.

Democratic Assemblywoman Lucy Killea, who was denied Communion by Roman Catholic Bishop Leo T. Maher because of her pro-choice stand on abortion, was the apparent victor Tuesday in her special-election battle with Carol Bentley for a seat in the California Senate. The election was considered a referendum on abortion and how far the Roman Catholic Church may go in opposing it. With all 536 precincts reporting, Killea led with 50.

Californians of every religion, including people who oppose abortion, believe that a Catholic bishop was out of line when he barred a San Diego assemblywoman from receiving Communion because of her pro-choice stand, The Times Poll has found. The fact that the assemblywoman, Democrat Lucy Killea, went on to score an upset victory in a state Senate race tends to substantiate another point illustrated by the poll: It helps when running for elective office in California to be pro-choice on abortion.

Democratic Assemblywoman Lucy Killea's upset victory in her race for the state Senate was widely seen Wednesday in both political and religious circles as a backlash against a Catholic bishop's unpopular act, as well as renewed proof of the volatility of the abortion issue. The day-after explanations for Killea's narrow victory in the solidly conservative 39th Senate District centered on Roman Catholic Bishop Leo T.

Roman Catholic Bishop Leo T. Maher has barred Assemblywoman Lucy Killea from receiving Communion because of her pro-choice stand on abortion in a special state Senate campaign, apparently the first such action ever imposed by a bishop against a Catholic elected official in the United States over the abortion issue.

A sampling of the nation's leading Roman Catholic bishops indicates that most are distancing themselves from San Diego Bishop Leo T. Maher, who last week banned a Democratic assemblywoman from Communion for her openly pro-choice stance, saying they prefer to appeal to an official's conscience first. Several of the bishops said, however, they still may ultimately penalize Catholic politicians who blatantly oppose the church's teaching on abortion.

Roman Catholic Bishop Leo T. Maher, who attracted national attention when he banned a pro-choice political candidate from receiving Communion, underwent brain surgery today to determine the nature of a brain lesion. Maher, 74, checked into Scripps Clinic in La Jolla on Monday afternoon for testing on the advice of his personal physician, who became concerned over Maher's symptoms of lethargy and loss of balance, the Diocese of San Diego said in a statement.

As a 33-year-resident of San Diego, I am incensed with the public attack by Bishop Leo T. Maher against Killea. As someone who also follows politics on all levels with regularity (developing an admitted cynicism in the process), Killea has a reputation for integrity and responsiveness to her constituents over many years of service.

Roman Catholic Bishop Leo T. Maher's condition was upgraded to good Thursday after undergoing brain surgery the day before, a spokeswoman for Scripps Clinic said. Maher was alert and cracking jokes with the nurses, Sue Pondrom said. He is expected to be walking today, she said, which will give doctors their first indication of whether difficulties he had in moving his left arm and leg were helped by the surgery. Maher had about 80% of a brain tumor removed April 25.
