~ SUBMIT PROLIFE ARTWORK! HCL is looking for royalty free artwork, photo and computer images for our website also to create more facebook "memes". Always remember that our objective is (1) giving hope to the girls who are facing a crisis pregnancy (2) Bringing awareness about abortion and the hope that is available with this new prolife generation that is becoming more active (3) Building a culture that loves life (4) Asking for donations to keep our facility running and allow us to provide free services.
(*For those who like to create religious art, we ask that you consider presenting God's presence in a way that shows the wonder in creation and the human person in the captivating daily miracles that are so often over looked or taken for granted. There is a natural wonder that the world, in it's broken state is searching for and is trying to rewrite and replace when they don't immediately see it in this instant-gratification generation.)
