New Report Reveals Students Lack Awareness of Resources Needed by Pregnant and Parenting College Students: Perception is Reality
Date:4/23/2008

ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Feminists for Life of America has released Perception is Reality, a study of FFL's first nationwide Pregnancy Resources Survey(TM). FFL's Pregnancy Resources Survey was created to discover students' awareness of resources and support for pregnant and parenting students on college and university campuses.

"Without housing on campus for me and my baby, without on-site daycare, without maternity coverage in my health insurance, it sure doesn't feel like I have much of a free choice," she told the board in 1996.

"It appeared that either the resources were lacking or information about existing support was missing on many campuses," said Foster. "We needed to see if this was widespread."

Perception is Reality shows that, among many issues, survey respondents were most confused or unaware of campus childcare options, school financial aid, and healthcare policies. "This survey confirms everything I have been
