Gianna Jessen Charms Philadelphia Pro-Lifers

'Tis a rare person whom makes the claim "my abortionist signed my birth certificate." Gianna Jessen is a rarity.

She is a young woman of great strength, humor and integrity. Gianna can also carry a sweet tune. Listen to Gianna sing, here, on her website.

More than 1,500 people attending the Pro Life Union of Southeastern Pennsylvania's annual "Stand Up For Life Dinner" were treated to Gianna's musings and music in Philadelphia on Sunday evening.

Gianna, 30, survived her mother's saline abortion seven and one-half months into the pregnancy. "I shouldn't be able to sing," she said. "I should be blind, burned and dead."

Instead, Gianna said that the abortion left her with with "the gift of Cerebral Palsy." Her condition helped her to "see the face of God in a different way," she said.

"We live in a very shallow world. That's OK. But it's painful when you're different. It's hard on your heart," said Gianna. Her suffering has given her "a little bit of depth."

Audience members found more than "a little bit of depth" in Gianna and her spontaneous remarks. They witnessed her great wisdom.
