Gianna: Aborted and Lived to Tell About It, first published in 1995. I want to call it my book because I wrote it but it is really Gianna's book because it is about her.
Gianna was born alive in an abortion clinic to a girl 17 years old and seven months pregnant. Since January 22, 1973, late-term abortions like these are legal throughout this country.
She is now 33 years old with a singing and speaking ministry all over the world. Of her mother's attempt to end her life before birth, Gianna says, "I just came into the world in an interesting way." She has forgiven her mother, recognizing that she was a teenager who felt desperate and did not realize she had other options. Although Gianna survived the abortion, lack of oxygen during the procedure has left her with lifelong cerebral palsy.

Today I am thankful Gianna survived.
