"This edition of the 'Bulletin' makes available in one volume the recent statements of The Anglican Church of Canada with respect to abortion, divorce, marriage breakdown and responsible parenthood. Because so many people in Canada are concerned about these subjects there is a real need for each parish priest to gave ready access to the precise position taken by the Church so that he may respond to the issues with accuracy, integrity and a degree of efficiency. .... For easy reference the 1958 and 1968 statements of The Lambeth Conference with respect to Responsible Parenthood have also been included". -- Intro., p. 4.

Ottawa, Ontario - Abortion can be justified only when there is serious threat to the mother's life or health, the Anglican Church of Canada says in a brief presented to the standing committee on health and welfare today.
The church, while stating that it cannot agree with either the "abortion on demand" or "absolute prohibition" camps, makes proposals which depart from its long-standing tradition in opposition to abortion.
The brief states that termination of pregnancy may be a justifiable consideration when circumstances contribute to the impairment of a mother's health, reducing her ability to care for her family. It does not recognize overcrowding, insanitary housing and malnutrition as justifiable causes for abortion.
"We assert the general inviolability of the foetus and defend its right to live and develop," it states. "We lay the burden of proof to the contrary on those who wish to extinguish that right on the ground that it is in conflict with another right having a greater claim to recognition.
The brief says there is urgent need to amend Criminal Code clauses dealing with the dispensing of means and information of family planning methods and urges the government to give priority to these sections of the Code.
The brief states that prevention of unwanted pregnancies by contraceptive means is to be preferred to other alternatives. A widespread program of family life education, including family planning, must accompany any change in the Criminal Code dealing with contraception, it says.
In cases of alleged rape or incest, it should be the effect upon the mother's total health rather than the circumstances of the conception which provides a valid ground for ending the pregnancy, the brief says. It also suggests therapeutic abortions be considered by a hospital committee when diagnosis can indicate there is substantial risk of foetal abnormality. Abortion in such cases would be directed toward prevention of breakdown of the mother's health.
The brief was prepared by a team of 24 persons, composed of bishops, clergy, laymen and women, both married and unmarried. The committee, appointed by Most Rev. Howard H. Clark, primate of the church, represented a wide range of professions.
