Mrs. Hepburn was keenly aware of the interrrelationship of birth control and abortion, which was widespread.

''Abortions would be unnecessary if birth control were practiced,'' she asserted in 1936. ''It would eliminate the causes of abortions, of which there are some 500,000 every year in the United States.''

Her daughter has long been an outspoken supporter of abortion rights, about which she has never entertained doubts. ''None at all,'' Ms. Hepburn said firmly. ''The people who are alive are the ones who interest me. I'm not particularly interested in the next world, because I have no control over it at all.
