"You have to work hard to offend Christians. By nature, Christians are the most forgiving, understanding, and thoughtful group of people I've ever dealt with. They never assume the worst. They appreciate the importance of having different perspectives. They're slow to anger, quick to forgive, and almost never make rash judgments or act in anything less than a spirit of total love . . . No, wait--I'm thinking of Labrador retrievers!" David Learn, 1998

     Focus on the Family has just re-released 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.

The former cover is above and the new cover is to the right:

Today I am thankful Gianna survived.

  1. when someone sent me the you tube story about gianna, i cried...what a beautiful girl and she is not ashamed of the gospel and speaks so freely about her lord..
    we watched all of the you tube videos about her and the interviews..you can tell that the news men who were not saved had a look of amazement on their faces and you could read their thoughts," what makes this girl tick?"
    she is a true survivor and a happy christian girl, eh jessica?
