Georgia State University Library Launches New Digital Collection of Pro-Life Newsletters

From Georgia State University Library Blog:

GSU Library has a new digital collection available online, the Pro-Life Newsletter Collection.

The collection, part of the Archives for Research on Women and Gender, contains newsletters reflecting the anti-abortion and (to a lesser extent) anti-euthanasia beliefs of various American organizations and individuals.

From the Digital Collection’s Homepage:

In September 2001, the Special Collections and Archives Department of the Georgia State University Library accepted the Archdiocese of Atlanta’s offer of this collection of newsletters reflecting the anti-abortion and pro-life beliefs of some Americans, including Georgians and other Southerners. The collection includes newsletters (1977-1993) produced by state organizations (Florida, Georgia, Minnesota, New York, Ohio and Pennsylvania), as well as national organizations (including Americans United for Life, National Right to Life Committee, Stop Planned Parenthood, and Feminists for Life of America) and individuals. These newsletters, as a supplement to the materials in the Georgia Women’s Movement Archives, offer a more complete view of the ideals and the personalities Pro-Choice advocates face in the abortion and euthanasia debate.
