B12 Palm Beach Post, Thursday, Nov. 7, 18 Denmark, Sweden Plan Liberal Pornography Law mend soon that a woman should be allowed to decide herself, within 12 weeks of conception, whether she wants to bear the child. An end of loosely enforced film censorship In Sweden and abolition of unenforced prohibitions on pornography are also being considered by parliamentary groups and are expected to be proposed soon. Such official steps augment the reputation of Scandinavia sex acts, following the legalization of written pornography last year. Sales of pornographic material have fallen since they were legalized, the official said. But he acknowledged that sales of hard-core pornographic pictures had soared. Although nominally illegal, they are openly available. In Sweden, a parliamentary committee on easier abortion laws Is expected to recom or attitudes as Denmark and Sweden. One of Scandinavia's strongest voices lamenting the decline of morals is that of Norway's Minister of Church and Education, KjeU Bondevik. A Swedish government minister dismissed sex as a superficial force in Swedish life. A Danish government minister said: "I think 80 or 90 per cent of our young people are happily at work in factories and on as a sexually permissive society. This reputation is substantiated by statistics showing, for example, that in Sweden, 48 per cent of first-born children are born less than eight months after the wedding. With unmarried men and women who openly Uve together, conception Is apparently not so much a scandal as a signal to set the wedding date. Norway and Finland, however, are not so liberal In laws action under the criminal code. "It's a difficult subject for public Intervention," a Ministry of Justice official said In explaining Danish attitudes on sex and censorship. "It's a question of taste and morals and other nonlegal matters, which are pretty hard to legislate." The government also promises to legalize the sale of pornographic pictures showing torlal and .written hard-core pornography. American, British and West German flags outside many of the shops attract tourists, who, shopkeepers say, account for more than half of their sales. Most of the printed material Is in Danish or Swedish. When Shopping Use P-T Classified farms and don't think much about It. At night they watch television." Nevertheless, even the most casual visitor to Denmark and Sweden Is soon aware that things are different from the United States or Britain. Both Copenhagen and Stockholm openly display In shop windows and beneath big signs reading "Sex Shop" or "Porno" a wide variety o' jlc- By JOHN M.
