I had the opportunity to hear Gianna Jessen speak. She is funny, engaging, and you either love her or hate her(those were her words). I love her! Totally wanted to sit down and have coffee with her like I would my closest friends and family! She's spunky and lives her life to the fullest.
If you haven't heard of her, she's an abortion survivor. Her medical records say: born during saline abortion. She wasn't supposed to be able to even hold up her head, but she has accomplished much more than doctors said she would. She has the gift of cerebral palsy(her words), which is due to her birth. Amidst many of her accomplishments is running 2 marathons on her tiptoes.
Her message isn't one of condemnation. She does believe abortion is murder (I do too), but her overall message was this:
You are valuable and have unspeakable worth.
She came into this world not wanted, her birth mother disposing of her. But, yet, she found her hope in Jesus Christ.
She has turned the impossible situation into a story of hope to those who've ever felt unloved and unworthy. When I get to heaven I will thank God for giving Gianna the opportunity to share her story. So, for now, thank you Gianna for the boldness to stand up and share your story of hope. Thank you for being a voice for the unborn.
Also, the movie October baby: http://octoberbabymovie.net/ is inspired by Gianna's life. I haven't seen it yet, but totally want to!
Where do you stand on this issue(pro-life, pro-choice)? Obviously, you know where I stand. Do you agree or agree to disagree with me?
