Titles of speeches delivered are: Communicating Family Planning (Mrs. Jean Hutchinson); Effects of New York's Abortion Law Change (Dr. Walter Rogers); The Law and Birth Control, Sterilization and Abortion (Mrs. Harriet F. Pilpel); International Postpartum Program for Family Planning (Dr. Frank Shubeck); Consequences of Family Planning for Man's Genetic Future (Dr. James Crow); The Psychology of Family Size Desires (Dr. Edward Pohlman); and, Hospital Based Family Planning Services in an Urban Setting (Dr. Hugh Davis). The two panel discussions focus on a broad spectrum of related issues that were initiated by the audience. Among them are: insurance payments for voluntary sterilization; use of paramedical personnel in family planning services; religious, personal, and social attitudes which inhibit the adoption of family planning practices; legal issues; and promiscuity and venereal disease, etc. A list of books and articles on various aspects of family planning conclude the report. The proceedings of the first annual symposium are reported in SO 001 171. (JLB)
