I i DanOIT FREE PRESS WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 1987 1 1 B imm Abortion case figure says she lied But rape claim ivas not part of court ruling i i !f ALT 102A naironi'JGiza "SPECIAL" j 1987 ASTRO CONVERSIO W VAN SALE WASHINGTON - (AP) - The woman whose case prompted the Supreme Court's landmark decision legalizing abortion says she falsely claimed to have been raped in hopes of winning an exemption from Texas law banning the operation. The new account by Norma McCor-vey, who was called Jane Roe in the 1 973 abortion case Roe vs. Wade, came during an interview with WUSA-TV in Washington. The station released a partial transcript Tuesday evening. "I found out I was pregnant through what I thought was love," McCorvey said in the interview. "I went to my doctor. He confirmed that I was pregnant, and I told him that I wanted an abortion, that I did not want to carry bearing on the outcome. McCorvey and Weddington were interviewed for a WUSA documentary, "Searching for Justice: Three American Stories," to be broadcast Sunday. Previously, McCorvey had said she was gang-raped while working for a circus in Georgia. The transcript released by WUSA says that when she was asked if she was raped, she replied, "No, I wasn't." McCorvey does not publicly disclose her address but has occasionally given interviews since 1980, when she revealed her identity as the woman involved in Roe vs. Wade. She said she waited until then so she could protect her other child, a teenage daughter, from publicity. the child for economic reasons." Despite her claim to have been raped, she was unable to obtain an abortion in Texas and was unable to afford to travel to another state where abortion was legal. McCorvey had the child, which was given up for adoption. She said she repeated the rape story later because she was "bitter, very bitter," and then allowed lawyers to take her case to the Supreme Court. Rape was never an issue in the Supreme Court case, in which the justices declared that women have a constitutional right to abortion, regardless of reason. McCorvey's lead lawyer in the case, Sarah Weddington, said she never touched on the issue of rape in her arguments and it had no 10 TO CHOOSE FROM DOWN Stock 14(80.

"It is a very considerable threat," said Kenneth Gilles, U.S. assistant secretary of agriculture. The Africanized bees sting in greater numbers and more readily than the ordinary honeybee, but U.S. Department of Agriculture officials see the economic threat as more serious than any public health threat. Workers in the "bee regulated zone" will try a number of ways to eliminate the Africanized bee or make it behave. They will attract male Africanized bees into traps, then flood the region with European bees in their place to breed with, queens. They will place killer-bee-proof doors over existing hives. They also will lure whole hives of Africanized bees into new homes, then kill them. The United States and Mexico each will spend $1.5 million a year on the project for the next three years. USDA officials estimate that if the bee became established in the United States, it could cause more than $1 billion in damage. ilfwi '7 SI'M ri'KliM m. is mi. '8?
