Gianna Jessen, an abortion survivor, shared a very compelling and heartbreaking story of her own birth – with members of Congress as her audience. Her story began when her mother, a 19-year-old college student was advised by Planned Parenthood at seven and a half months pregnant to have a late-term saline abortion. Babies aborted through a saline abortion are slowly burned alive over several days by a toxic solution that is injected into the amniotic fluid surrounding them. The mother is then induced and the baby is usually delivered dead.
Against the nearly insurmountable odds, Gianna was born alive. The botched abortion wasn’t without its lasting consequences though, as Jessen was ultimately diagnosed with cerebral palsy caused by a lack of oxygen from the saline.
While she said she forgives her biological mother for attempting to abort her, Jessen warned members of the House Judiciary Committee that America “will have to give an account as a nation before God for the murder of over 50 million children in the womb.”
