12 PAMPA DAILY NIWS PAMPA TEXAS 6«lh YEAR Monday. June 19, 1972 Worry Clinic By GEORGE W. CRANK, PH. I).. M.I). Mary's pregnancy problem should be debated by teen-agers! For 6 people will be more unhappy, if Mary follows the sentimental advice of her inexperienced girl friends! But those 6 will be much happier by needing the prescription given below! CASE U-513: Mary L, age 17, is pregnant. "Dr. Crane," she asked, tearfully," what shall I do about the baby? "I got pregnant during my junior year in high school and the baby is due next month. "My parents want me to let it be adopted. "But my best girl friends think it would be wonderful for me to keep it. "I got pregnant at a school party where a lot of drinking went on. "So I don't know for sure who the father is. "But I must make up my mind soon, so what would you recommend?" ADOPTION DILEMMA The proper rule to follow is this: Whatever does the most good for the most people over the longest period of ti-«.e, is right and just. Now notice inose who are closely involved in this situation: 111 Mary, who needs to go back to high school for her senior year. (2) Her parents, who would be forced to assume most of the care and financial support of the child. (3) Its future adoptive parents, who would be a good family able to support and rear the baby in a loving home, where it would not be stigmatized by "illegitimacy." Mainly About Skellytown Mrs. Minerva Medley has as guests in her home this week two grandaughters, Maria LaJune and Marsha Phillips of McLean. Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Coleman accompanied by their grandaughter, Julie Smith and Mr. and Mrs. Ross Coleman and sons of Amarillo, spent the weekend at Lake Fryer near Perryton. Mr. and Mrs. Irvin Brown had as Sunday dinner guests, Mr. and Mrs. Doug Johnson, Oklahoma City, Okla., Mr. and Mrs. Kelly Brown and daughter Cary, Midland; Mrs. Elsie Groninger, Pampa; Mr. and Mrs. Ernie Bill Terry and family and Joe Freeman, White Deer and Mrs. Naomi Mercer, Larry and Nancy. Mr. and Mrs. John Chancy and son, Tom, had as weekend guests Mrs. Chaney's daughter and family, Mrs. Dennis Jones, Nacogdoches. They attended the alumni banquet at White Deer High School. Mr. and Mrs. Bill Houghton and sons, Jeff and Greg, returned Tuesday from a trip to Spokane, Mo, where they visited his sister and family, Mrs. Wayne Barrickman; a brother, J. R. Jones, Sunnyvale, Calif, accompanied the Houghtons home for a visit. Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Horner had as Sunday afternoon guests he father, Lee Meadows and wife of Pampa and Mrs. David Hutchens and children of Amarillo. (4i Finally, the baby itself, which would suffer many handicaps if Mary followed the sentimental advice of her girl friends. Bluntly stated, the good of the baby warrants its adoption at the time of its birth! Otherwise, Mary will be hampered in making a good adjustment to life, for she would probably stop her education. And be hampered regarding future marriage. Even if she did find a man who was willing to put a wedding ring on her finger, there might be veiled hostility to this baby in his home. And her parents, though they would love and care for this grandchild, would doubtless spoil it even worse than they did Mary. For grandparents tend to be more "permissive" than parents! And think of that fine family which is eager to adopt a baby. They'd furnish it the proper surroundings of love, care and a good education. Mary will suffer a temporary heartache at releasing her baby for adoption. But if it is done while she is still at the hospital, she will not have developed a strong attachment to it, so she will bounce back to normal emotional stability within a few weeks. Besides, her future readjustment will be greatly enhanced by not having an illegitimate child to complicate a future marriage. Her parents likewise will not be under the constant veiled censure of having an unwed daughter's child in their home.
