Operators of 25 Southern California anti-abortion counseling centers were ordered Thursday by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge to stop providing pregnancy testing as part of their effort to persuade women not to get abortions. The Right to Life League of Southern California, which runs the centers, also was forbidden from advertising in the "clinic" section of telephone books because it is not a licensed medical facility.

Susan Carpenter McMillan was behind enemy lines and her battle was lost. She was hissed and booed for describing abortion as America's holocaust. One man marched out. A professor's appeal for deference did little but reduce the Valley College audience to polite fidgeting. Later, McMillan discussed the cost of being spokeswoman for a view that one 1989 survey showed is held by less than 15% of America women: that abortion should not be a legal choice, not even for victims of rape or incest.

Demands on KCET: The Right to Life League of Southern California and a group of conservative pastors on Monday called for KCET Channel 28 to air the anti-abortion film "Eclipse of Reason," which includes footage of a 16-week-old fetus being torn apart by medical instruments. The demand was made during a press conference called to protest KCET's Sept. 6 airing of "Stop the Church," a controversial short film about the AIDS activist group ACT UP.

I was extremely pleased with Mary Rourke's fair-handed piece "Forgive--but Not Forget" (July 19). My single criticism is that Rourke identified the Right to Life League as an organization that "promotes political candidates" and whose league-trained post-abortion counselors "only treat women who agree to claim Jesus as their personal Savior." We do not endorse candidates. In addition we are non-sectarian. Thanks for allowing me to make this clarification, and kudos to Rourke for a wonderful article.

The volatile abortion issue triggered angry shouts and finger shaking as more than 200 people on opposing sides conducted simultaneous demonstrations in downtown Los Angeles. The "pro-choice" demonstration was organized by women's rights advocates known as the January 22nd Coalition for Reproductive Rights. Wearing black clothes in mourning for women who died from illegal abortions, they rallied outside the West 9th Street offices of the Right-to-Life League of Southern California.

The Right to Life League of Southern California demanded the ouster of Dr. Neil Schram as chairman of the Los Angeles City-County AIDS Task Force because he recommended that women infected with AIDS consider abortions. Susan Carpenter McMillan, a spokeswoman for the anti-abortion group, said Wednesday that her organization was "outraged" that Schram would counsel such women to have abortions merely because their unborn children have a 30%-to-50% chance of contracting the fatal disease.

I read your editorial "Vital Legacy of Nancy Cruzan" (Dec. 22) with awe. How frightened must those be who are in wheelchairs or disabled, whether slightly or severely. Or perhaps they do not see themselves as targets, for we all scoff at the idea that tragedy will happen to us. As David Shaw so aptly pointed out in his articles on abortion and the media last year, the press does not relate both sides on such controversial issues as abortion and euthanasia. Nancy Cruzan was not terminally ill, she was not in a coma and she was not in any pain.

Los Angeles City Councilman Hal Bernson deliberately broke a quorum at Tuesday's council meeting to prevent a vote on a motion by Councilman Joel Wachs to involve the city in the national abortion debate by declaring it a "pro-choice city." Bernson marched out of the meeting after telling his colleagues the council should not become entangled in matters outside its jurisdiction. Before leaving, Bernson also said abortion was a matter of personal conscience.

I am shocked at the Medical Board of California's decision not to revoke the license of Dr. Leo F. Kenneally when other doctors have lost their licenses for less (Aug. 15). Two women are dead because of his gross negligence and at least five others were seriously injured. The Medical Board determined that Kenneally must be allowed to practice for the sake of the poor and underprivileged women. This is another example of "abortion distortion." Decisions relative to abortion are calculated to support it. Meanwhile, Kenneally, who has been put on probation by the Medical Board twice before, will continue to butcher women in the name of "choice."
