Court blow for abortion protestor

A NEW cathedral in Managua, the Nicaraguan capital, may soon rise from the ashes of the old, (above), destroyed by an earthquake in 1972. Plans are afoot to raise $2 million, largely from donations in the United States. So far $186,000 has been found, mainly from two substantial gifts by anonymous individuals.

Ricardo Legorreta, an architect from Mexico City, has submitted designs for the new building, which would seat 1,000 people and have standing room for a further 3,000. The Managua Cathedral Fund was set up to organise the appeal after Cardinal Miguel Obando Bravo of Managua asked for help.

THE conviction of a pro-life demonstrator found guilty of creating a nuisance outside a Maryland clinic was upheld this week by the US supreme court.

Jerry Wayne Eanes, who was arrested outside the Hagerstown Reproductive Clinic on May 18, 1988, was convicted by a district court of "wilfully disturbing the peace and tranquillity" of the neighbourhood. the justices of the supreme court refused to intervene in the case, letting the earlier decision stand without comment.

Mr Eanes is alleged to have conducted an anti-abortion "preaching" at the clinic which could be heard a block away. He was asked by police to lower the volume of his remarks. The offence carries a $250 fine.

Last month the supreme court refused to lift an injunction preventing Operation Rescue, the controversial pro-life group, from holding protests at clinics in Atlanta.
