Abortion Survivor Gives Powerful Testimony Before Congress


<p>Most babies&rsquo; births are met with balloons and tiny embroidered socks, hugs and tears of joy. Not Gianna Jessen&rsquo;s.</p>

<p>During a congressional hearing Wednesday, Jessen, an abortion survivor, shared with members of Congress the heartbreaking story of her own&nbsp;birth -- a story&nbsp;that 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.</p>

<p>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.</p>

<p>But against the nearly insurmountable odds,&nbsp;Jessen was born alive. The abortion wasn&rsquo;t without its lasting consequences, though, as Jessen was ultimately diagnosed with cerebral palsy caused by a lack of oxygen from the saline.</p>

<p>While she said she forgives her biological mother for attempting to abort her, Jessen warned members of the House Judiciary Committee that America &ldquo;will have to give an account as a nation before God for the murder of over 50 million children in the womb.&rdquo;</p>
