Gianna: Aborted and Lived to Tell About It
Jessica Shaver Renshaw
Summary: One spring day, a frightened, pregnant young woman stepped off the bus and into a building with the caption Avalon Hospital above its doors. "It's the best thing. We know, We've walked in your shoes before," she was counselled. The young woman donned a gown and awaited her turn to see the doctor. In a few hours it was supposed to all be over. But the abortion failed. Instead, a tiny, premature little girl was born, wailing. Little Gianna has grown up and is a huge advocate for life. She attends pro-life rallies, counsels other young pregnant women, appears as a guest on talk shows and makes appearances in schools. The gospel is her primary message with a plea for the unborn coming secondary.
Personal Thoughts: The real clincher to this story occurs upon the revelation of the birth mom's complete story--one you don't get to read about until near the end. This is when Planned Parenthood is exposed as the heinous organization that it is. Aside from the unborn children, how many women's lives have been destroyed by the foundation of lies this company is built upon?
Quote: "I picture the Lord's strong hand always covering me and not letting me be harmed," Gianna said of her biological mother's abortion. "Her sin nearly killed me, but my sin did kill Jesus, and I've been forgiven on the cross, so I can forgive her also." --pg 189
