“Woman Born During Abortion Confronts Congress”
by TR - Truth Revolt   
September 13th, 2015

"I would ask Planned Parenthood, if abortion is about women’s rights, then what were mine?"

Speaking to Congress Wednesday, a woman born alive during an abortion reminded lawmakers that abortion actually does kill human life, because she would not be alive today had things gone as planned in 1977.

38-year-old Gianna Jessen entered the world under horrifying circumstances when she miraculously survived a saline abortion – the kind where the baby burns alive from a caustic chemical before being suffocated to death – when her mother was seven months pregnant.

"Instead of dying, after 18 hours of being burned in my mother’s womb, I was delivered alive in an abortion clinic in Los Angeles on April the 6th, 1977," Jessen told Congress. "Thankfully, the abortionist was not at work yet. Had he been there, he would have ended my life with strangulation, suffocation, or leaving me there to die. Instead, a nurse called an ambulance, and I was rushed to a hospital."

After being born alive during the procedure, Jessen had cerebral palsy due to lack of oxygen to her brain. She has since dedicated her life to saving as many lives as possible.

"Within the first year after my birth, I was used as an expert witness in a case where an abortionist had been caught strangling a child to death after being born alive," she continued.

Jessen also pointed her crosshairs at Planned Parenthood and reminded Americans that they have a responsibility to end this unspeakably evil practice, saying they will have to give an account before God one day.

"Planned Parenthood is not ashamed of what they have done or continue to do. But we will have to give an account as a nation, before God, for our apathy and for the murder of over 50 million children in the womb. Every time we falter in courage as individuals and fail to confront this evil, I wonder how many lives have been lost in our silence, while we make sure we are lauded among men and do not offend anyone? How many children have died, and been dismembered, and their parts sold, for our ego, our convenience, and our promiscuity?"

Jessen also highlighted the irony behind abortion being touted as a so-called "women's rights" issue when, in fact, many girls have been killed as a result of it, which could've potentially included herself. 

"I would ask Planned Parenthood the following questions: If abortion is about women’s rights, then what were mine? You continuously use the argument, ‘If the baby is disabled, we need to terminate the pregnancy,’ as if you can determine the quality of someone’s life. Is my life less valuable due to my Cerebral Palsy?"

"You have failed, in your arrogance and greed, to see one thing: it is often from the weakest among us that we learn wisdom—something sorely lacking in our nation today. And it is both our folly and our shame that blinds us to the beauty of adversity."

"I am alive because of the power of Jesus Christ alone, in whom I live, move and have my being," she declared. "Without Him I would have nothing, and with Him I have all."
