Ted Harvey Introduces Gianna Jessen to the House of Representatives
edit_button

Dymphna's Well posted a link to an article from CitizenLink. Te Deum has an extensive post on this as well.

Over in the Colorado House of Representatives, assistant minority leader Ted Harvey was troubled about plans from the House to honor the 90 year legacy of Planned Parenthood in Colorado. So, he invited a speaker - Gianna Jessen.

Gianna Jessen truly succeeded in the American dream. She overcame Cerebral Palsy to one day win a marathon. She is a truly legend. As soon as she finished, The House Chamber "exploded into applause which lasted for 15-to-20 seconds. Gianna had touched their souls. Ironically, Alice Madden, the majority leader and sponsor of the Planned Parenthood resolution, walked over to Gianna and congratulated her."

Mr. Harvey then went to the podeum and revealed that Gianna's cerebral palsy was caused from a failed abortion attempt on her 17 year old mother. She was born alive and adopted at the age of 4 after nearly dying.

The Speaker then announced, "Representative Harvey, I will allow you to continue your introduction, but not for the purposes of debating a measure now pending before the House."

And then there was silence - a deafening silence.

I say bravo to Ted Harvey! I hope this changed the minds of some of the representative there. For most people abortion is the murder of someone not seen. They got to see the victim of this genocide for once...it's about time.

Thanks for sharing Gianna's powerful story. It's ironic that pro-aborts would point fingers and fume at "using a person" to promote pro-life. It's eating at their subconscience...the fetus is a baby...is a person. Also, it gives me goosebumps that she shares the name of St. Gianna Molla.
