Up to Congress

THE BALTIMORE SUN

In her dissent, Justice Sandra O'Connor said, "Congress retains the power to force the constitutional question by legislating more explicitly." Congressional sentiments are clear. At least the Senate's are. Last year, Sen. John Chafee, R-R.I., proposed that regulations be changed to specify that women at family planning clinics be advised of all options, including abortion. This passed easily, 62-36, but did not become law because the underlying bill got sidetracked. The Senate leadership should give Senator Chafee's proposal high priority now.
