(Studio) Carter dogged by abortion issue as he greets plant workers in Milwaukee, WI; Carter views noted.
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(DC) In Philadelphia last week Carter meeting moved from Catholic to Lutheran church because of disagreement with regard to whether abortion would be discussed. Though Philadelphia Archbishop John Cardinal Krol consulted with parish priests prior to meeting, he says he's not involved in bipartisan pols. [KROL - says if Carter says Supreme Court decision, right or wrong, would bind Carter to law, then Nuremburg Trials must be washed out because trials appealed to law of land to justify actions; says killing of unborn child is very important.] Carter's speech and reception in Polish Hill area of Philadelphia last week noted. Reporter comments on prejudice that may be part of some Catholics resistance to Carter; says polls show Carter as Catholic favorite though.
