Dear Advertising Manager/Editor:
Journalism best serves its citizens when it provides meaningful information
on all issues, even those issues which might be considered sensitive. When
there is a continuous free flow of information, society is assured that
journalistic practices are fair and First Amendment rights are being protected.
We wish to place the enclosed twelve-page, full-color supplement, Hope
and Healing, in your campus newspaper as a paid insert. This supplement
is being distributed to hundreds of colleges and high schools throughout
This supplement is designed to accomplish two goals. First, to increase
sensitivity toward the emotional needs of those who have been involved
in a past abortion. Second, to offer help, reassurance, and guidance to
those women and men who are still trying to find emotional peace after
abortion. A resource list for post-abortion counseling and support groups
is included on page 2 of the supplement.
Please fill out the enclosed circulation information and insert pricing
form and send it to the address or fax number listed at the bottom of the
form. This will help us make the proper arrangements for payment of the
advertising costs and shipping of the inserts.
If you need more information, please contact me at this number: (555)
