Students for LIfe Event Tomorrow

The Students for Life are sponsoring an event on campus tomorrow.

MTV's '16 and Pregnant' stars speaking about adoption at Western Michigan University

KALAMAZOO, MI -- Catelynn Lowell and Tyler Baltierra, MTV reality stars from the "16 and Pregnant" series, are coming to Western Michigan University to speak about unplanned pregnancy, adoption, and share their personal stories on Tuesday.
The free and public event takes place at 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 9 at WMU's South Ballroom in the Bernhard Center.

The couple is from Marine City and was featured in Season 1 of MTV's "16 and Pregnant." Both attend Baker College, according to their website,

Lowell was 16 years old when she became pregnant with a daughter. They decided adoption was the best choice for them.

"In mine and Catelynn’s eyes, adoption was the best option," Baltierra said on their website."Me and Cate chose a completely open adoption, which means that we get pictures, letters, emails, phone calls, and even face-to-face visits with our daughter. We handmade a baby blanket and a scrapbook for her to have so when she is old enough to understand she can really look back and see the reasons why me and Catelynn made our decision to give her a life we couldn’t provide."

Bethany Christian Services is sponsoring their tour. For more information visit or call 269.372.8800.
