Recently a young woman at San Jose State University received a copy of You Can Stop Injustice-HLA's exciting new campus supplement.
Her response was typical of students who read our materials:
Before I read your papers, I didn't have much against abortion before 3 weeks of pregnancy, but now that I know the procedure, it opened my eyes to the pure evil behind it all… No life is worth less than another, we are all equal and are all sent to earth for a reason. God loves us all… I am 110% against abortion! A life is a life…
With responses like this, no wonder we have requests to develop new materials to reach other populations.
HLA's second edition of Did You Know? is designed to fill this need for an educational resource that reaches the African American community with the pro-life message.
New articles such as "A Planned Parenthood Insider Speaks Out," "Targeting our Children" and "Abortion & Premature Birth" makes Did You Know? an essential element of your pro-life tool kit.
78% of Planned Parenthood facilities are located in poor and minority neighborhoods.
In fact, Planned Parenthood's latest fact sheet illustrates how their business progressed between 2007 and 2008:
Adoption referrals plummeted dramatically from 4,912 in 2007 to 2,405 in 2008.
Prenatal clients dropped from 10,914 in 2007 to 9,433 in 2008.
Surgical abortions increased from 305,310 in 2007 to 324,008 in 2008.
We can see that the United States' largest abortion chain is really about abortion-and nothing else.
We know they target African Americans and other minorities.
