Overview and metadata sections
In response to questions concerning the Yearly Meeting's position on abortion issues, the Family Relations Committee invited other members of PYM committees and interested Friends to form an Abortion Study Group which held its first meeting in June 1981. The goal of the Committee was to study aspects of the issue and to produce a study guide for monthly meetings. The Study Group was clerked by Beverly McCauley, a member and former clerk of the Family Relations Committee. A year later, the group split into two sections to write position papers supporting the pro-life and pro-choice points of view.
Records of the Abortion Study Group of the Family Relations Committee, under the Representative Meeting. Includes minutes, reports, correspondence, and miscellaneous papers, 1981-1982.
