    • If the material is copyrighted by the Elliot Institute, or does not have an explicit copyright statement (meaning it has a presumed copyright assigned to the Elliot Institute),  you may freely reprint and/or translate the material under the following conditions:
      1. You must provide an accurate notice of the source of the reprinted material.  This may the book title from which it is excerpted, the issue and date of publication in The Post-Abortion Review, or as an excerpt from Hope and Healing, or if none of the above apply, simply identify it as a posting from www.AfterAbortion.org.
      2. You must include in the credit the name and address: Elliot Institute, PO Box 7348, Springfield, IL 62791-7348 and the notice “Additional information is posted at www.AfterAbortion.org”
