I'm not sure why our campus decided to use your newspaper as an insert, but I am certainly not upset. I have always been against late term abortions or anything beyond the first trimester, but now after reading the article on the different methods of abortion, I am totally against abortion in any form. I was completely horrified to learn that a doctor could do such horrible things to an innocent life.
I want to personally thank you for this insert. Before I read it, I was pretty much riding the fence on the issue of abortion. I believed it was a woman's right to choose, but I personally would never get one. Now after having read this article through tears, I have a strong opinion. This article really opened my eyes. Thank you very much. Continue educating people in this way, and we may be able to do something about this barbaric practice.
I read your paper and it brought tears as I read the stories of other women who have had an abortion, like me. I guess I was too young to be making such an important decision about my life and the life of my baby, at the age of eighteen. When the doctor told me I did not have to do this (go through with the abortion) I still went ahead anyway. I guess I was just too dumb or just too young thirty-two years ago and I will always want to change what I cannot. I've had four pregnancies afterwards, having four beautiful boys. Every year I remind my sons about seeing the face of God, when the nurse handed them to me the next day. I knew then that there was a God that lived. I saw the face of God in the face of my newborn sons.
I'm so grateful to the people who put this supplement in the newspaper. When my baby grows up, I'm going to tell him or her that there are people out there-people we don't even know and will probably never meet, who saved our lives.

I became pregnant and used your supplement to convince my mother that abortion was not the "easy way out." I was 21 when I had Isaiah; he was born two days after finals! He is the most wonderful person I've ever met. He's a charming little boy, with bright eyes and a captivating smile. He's teaching me so much about life, happiness, (and growing up.) His father and I have been through a lot, but have remained together through it all. We both had to grow up and accept responsibility for what we had created. So, keep printing your magazine, it helped me get through a very difficult time in my life. It made me believe in myself and in my decisions. Thanks for that!
Pregnancy Care Center Counselor
Four pregnant teens, all of them abortion-minded, came to the center as a result of the HLA Supplement, and all of them have decided to carry their babies to term! Ironically, these unwed, pregnant mothers were not college students themselves but all had mothers who had returned to college. "In each case, completely unrelated to and independent of the other, it was the mother who read the HLA Supplement and was motivated through it to help her daughter seek alternatives to abortion. Without a doubt, the HLA Supplement should be credited for saving those four babies."
