(Studio) Ldrs. of National Conf. of Catholic Bishops meet with President at White House to discuss abortion.
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner
(DC) Bishops say encouraged but not totally satisfied by Ford views on abortion; spokesperson asked to assess Ford versus Carter views. [Archbishop Joseph BERNARDIN - says difference now is Carter unwillingness to support amendment and Ford willingness to do so.] Bishops' dissatisfaction with Ford stand comes from Ford support of amendment to let states pass own laws with regard to issue. Limited endorsement of bishops is breakthrough for Ford because polls show he must win away some of traditional Democrat support to pull ahead of Carter.
