the abortion clinic staff rescued the baby who was starving for oxygen
after gulping the saline solution that burned her inside and out for
hours. Later as Gianna grew
into a little girl, she would have a terrible reaction to the sound of
fire, like fire crackers or the sound of fire crackling in a fireplace.
Her therapist concluded this hysteria to the sound of fire was due
to the burning of the saline solution in her ears while she was still in
doctors predicted that Gianna would never be able to walk or even sit up
by herself. Her foster
mother, who is now Gianna’s legal grandmother, didn’t think much about
what the doctors said and began working Gianna with physical therapy, love

people and spoke about her feelings toward abortion.
The audience’s response was overwhelming.
“They cry,” she says simply.
“People come up to me and tell me they’re glad I survived.

Her mother continued, “The reason you have cerebral palsy is

He spoke to her internally and said that her mother had aborted
her. When Gianna heard this internally she felt a peace and
understanding from the Lord. Before

story is definitely part of the reality that should get out in regard to
the abortion issue.
At the World
Prayer Movement Symposium many people deeply touched by Gianna, especially
teens. Gianna is so
