V ABORTION Annual protest Abortion opponents march to Supreme Court By MARCY GORDON The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Emboldened by the Republican majority in Congress, tens of thousands of yelling, chanting abortion opponents marched %n protest to the Supreme Court building Monday, the 23rd anniversary of the court's decision legalizing most abortions. * The marchers used the annual protest to exhort President Clinton to sign legislation limiting a woman's legal right to end a pregnancy. Advancing along Constitution Avenue to Capitol Hill, demonstrators chanted repeatedly: "What do we want? Life! When do we want it? Now!" As they demonstrated, however, the Supreme Court dealt a new blow to efforts to enact new abortion curbs. Without comment, the justices refused to let Pennsylvania set strict reporting rules that must be satisfied before Medicaid funds can be paid for abortions sought by victims of rape or incest or by women for whom giving birth would endanger their lives. An estimated 60,000 people participated in the march, U.S. Park Police spokeswoman Sandra Alley said. The March for Life Fund, the, event organizer, said about 125,000 took part. An anti-abortion march in Washington in April 1990 drew the biggest crowd, an estimated 200,000, in response to an abortion-rights gathering a year earlier attended by 300,000. Clinton threatens an election- year veto of Congress' first attempt to prohibit an abortion procedure since the landmark 1973 decision in Roe vs. Wade. The bill, which bans a rare process used late in pregnancy, passed the Senate last month by a 54-44 vote. Republican presidential hopeful Rep. Robert Dornan of California told Monday's crowd that with elections scheduled in 288 days, the abortion foes' mission The Associated Press Steam rises from a heat grate as abortion opponents rally near the Supreme Court Monday In Washington, D.C. "above and beyond everything is to get a pro-life person into the job as executive leader of the free world." ' '• In the Supreme Court building, the justices refused without comment to let Pennsylvania apply new restrictive reporting rules for Medicaid-funded abortions sought by women whose pregnancies resulted from rape or incest or whose life would be endangered by giving birth. Pennsylvania law would have allowed Medicaid-funded abortion, only when rape or incest that caused a pregnancy had been reported to the police or when a doctor with no financial stake in the procedure certified that an only abortion would save a woman's life. Stovall / AG stumps for change FROM PAGE A1 months, and then it takes many times before they even begin serving a sentence," McKenna said. Stovall also voiced support for a bill that would mean a person convicted a second time of a sex offense would receive a mandatory 40-year sentence without parole. Enhanced sentences for sexual offenders is seen as an alternative to the sexual predator law under review by the Supreme Court. Under that law, those judged by mental health experts to fit the profile of sexual predators can be committed to a mental hospital indefinitely after serving their prison sentence., A Saline County district judge last year declared the law unconstitutional, in part because it punishes a person twice for the same crime. The state's high court is examining the law. Among other proposals Stovall advocates are: • Tougher enforcement of protection orders and creation of a new crime of invasion of privacy for those who violate those orders. • Making it mandatory that law enforcement officers seize weapons they see when answering domestic violence calls, but not permitting searches for weapons. Stovall conceded those who oppose gun controls might fight this proposal. • Removing the current exemption in the law that prevents charging a spouse in a domestic violence incident. • Allowing juvenile court judges discretion to order juvenile sex of- fenders to register with the county sheriffs office upon their release from custody. Two of her proposals would hit people in their pocketbooks: One would increase the state's marriage license fee from $40 to $100, thereby increasing the amount of money dedicated to the Protection from Abuse Fund from about $500,000 a year to $1.25 million. The other would fine convicted sex offenders an additional $100, with proceeds going to finance sexual assault programs. • Stovall has no estimate how much this would generate, but s}ie noted there are about 1,700 sex offenders in prison in Kansas.
