to make a choice between keeping their baby and staying in school." The
legislation, created by Feminists for Life, would establish "a the pilot
program to will help interested, eligible institutions of higher education

    an initial pregnancy and parenting resource forum to assess pregnancy and
    parenting resources, located on the campus or within the local community
