Planned Parenthood Celebration Jolted by Abortion Survivor
   TED HARVEY


She sings the anthem to applause, then her secret is revealed to stunned silence.

Gianna Jessen

I want to share with you an awesome experience I had in the Colorado House of Representatives on May 8. It is a humbling experience to look back and realize that God used me to play a role in His divine orchestration.

I was leaving the House chambers for the weekend when our Democrat speaker of the House announced that the coming Monday would be the final day of this year's General Assembly. He went on to state that there were still numerous resolutions on the calendar which we would need to be addressed prior to the summer adjournment. Interestingly, he specifically mentioned that one of the resolutions we would be hearing was being carried by the House Majority Leader Alice Madden, honoring the 90th anniversary of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains.

As a strong pro-life legislator I was disgusted by the idea that we would pass a resolution honoring this 90-year legacy of genocide. I drove home that night wondering what I could say that might pierce the darkness during the debate on this heinous resolution.

On Saturday morning, I took my 8-year-old son up to the mountains to go white-water rafting. The trip lasted all day. As we were driving home, exhausted and hungry, I remembered that I had accepted an invitation to attend a fundraising dinner that night for a local pro-life organization. One of my most respected mentors had personally called me several weeks earlier and asked me to attend, so I knew I'd have to clean up and head over.

After our meal, the executive director of the organization introduced the keynote speaker. I looked up and saw walking to the stage a handicapped young lady being assisted to the microphone by a young man holding a guitar.

Her name was Gianna Jessen.

Gianna said "Hello," welcomed everyone, and then sang three of the most beautiful Christian songs I have ever heard.

She then began to give her testimony. When her biological mother was 17 years old and seven and a half months pregnant, she went to a Planned Parenthood clinic to have an abortion. As God would have it, the abortion failed and a beautiful 2-pound baby girl was brought into the world. Unfortunately, she was born with cerebral palsy and the doctors thought that she would never survive. The doctors were wrong.

Imagine the timing! A survivor of a Planned Parenthood abortion arrived in town just days before the Colorado House of Representatives was to celebrate Planned Parenthood's "wonderful" work.

As I listened to Gianna's amazing testimony, the Lord inspired me to ask her if she could stay in Denver until Monday morning so that I could introduce her on the floor of the House and tell her story. Perhaps she could even begin the final day's session by singing our country's national anthem!

To my surprise she said she would seriously consider it. If she were to agree, she wanted her accompanying guitarist to stay as well. A lady standing in line behind me waiting to meet Gianna overheard our conversation and said that she would be willing to pay for the guitarist's room. Gianna then said that she would think about it.


As I was driving home from the banquet, my cell phone rang. It was Gianna, and she immediately said, "I'm in, let's ruin this celebration." Praise God!

When Monday morning came, I awoke at 6 a.m. to write my speech before heading to the Capitol. As I wrote down the words, I could sense God's help and I knew that this was going to be a powerful moment for the pro-life movement.

Following a committee hearing, I rushed into the House chambers just as the opening morning prayer was about to be given. Between the prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance, I wrote a quick note to the speaker of the House explaining that Gianna is an advocate for cerebral palsy. I took the note to the speaker and asked if I could have my friend open the last day of session by singing the national anthem. Without any hesitation the speaker took the microphone and said, "Before we begin, Representative Harvey has made available for us Gianna Jessen to sing the national anthem."

Gianna sang the most amazing rendition of The Star Spangled Banner that you could possibly imagine. Every person in the entire chamber was completely still, quiet and in awe of this frail young lady's voice.

Due to her cerebral palsy, Gianna often loses her balance, and shortly after starting to sing she grabbed my arm to stabilize herself, and I could tell that she was shaking. Suddenly, midway through the song, she forgot the words and began to hum and then said, "Please forgive me; I am so nervous." She then immediately began singing again and every House member and every guest throughout the chambers began to sing along with her to give her encouragement and to lift her up.

As I looked around the huge hall I listened to the unbelievable melody of Gianna's voice being accompanied by a choir of over 100 voices. I had chills running all over my body, and I knew that I had just witnessed an act of God.

As the song concluded the speaker of the House explained that Gianna has cerebral palsy and is an activist to bring awareness to the disease. "Let us give her a hand not only for her performance today, but also for her advocacy work," he said. The chamber immediately exploded into applause she had them all in the palm of her hand.


The speaker then called the House to order, and we proceeded as usual to allow members to make any announcements or introductions of guests. For dramatic effect, I waited until I was the last person remaining before I introduced Gianna.

As I waited for my turn, I nervously paced back and forth praying to God that he would give me the peace, confidence and the courage necessary to pull off what I knew would be one of the most dramatic and controversial moments of my political career.

While I waited, a prominent reporter from one of the major Denver newspapers walked over to Gianna and told her that her rendition captured the spirit of the national anthem more powerfully than any she had ever heard before.

Finally, I was the last person remaining. So, I proceeded to the microphone and began my speech.


At this point the chamber exploded into applause which lasted for 15-to-20 seconds. Gianna had touched their souls.


"Members, I would like to introduce you to a new friend and hero of mine — her name is Gianna Jessen. She is visiting us today from Nashville, Tennessee, where she is an accomplished recording artist.

"She has cerebral palsy and was raised in foster homes before being adopted at the age of four.

"She was born prematurely and weighed only 2 pounds at birth. She remained in the hospital for almost three months. A doctor once said she had a great will to live and that she fought for her life. Eventually she was able to leave the hospital and be placed in foster care.

"Because of her cerebral palsy, her foster mother was told that it was doubtful that she would ever crawl or walk. She could not sit up independently. Through the prayers and dedication of her foster mother, she eventually learned to sit up, crawl, then stand. Shortly before her fourth birthday, she began to walk with leg braces and a walker.

"She continued in physical therapy and after a total of four surgeries, she was able to walk without assistance.

"She still falls sometimes, but she says she has learned how to fall gracefully after falling for 29 years.

"Two years ago, she walked into a local health club and said she wanted a private trainer. At the time her legs could not lift 30 pounds. Today she can leg press 200 pounds.

"She became so physically fit that she began running marathons to raise money and awareness for cerebral palsy. She just returned last week from England where she ran in the London Marathon. It took her more than eight-and-a-half hours to complete. They were taking down the course by the time she made it to the finish line. But she made it, nonetheless. With bloody feet and aching joints, she finished the race.

"Members would you help me recognize a modern-day hero Gianna Jessen?"

At this point the 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.

As the applause began to die down, I raised my hand to be recognized one more time.

"Mr. Speaker, members, if you would allow me just a few more moments I would appreciate your time.


"My name is Ted Harvey, not Paul Harvey, but, please, let me tell you the rest of the story."


"My name is Ted Harvey, not Paul Harvey, but, please, let me tell you the rest of the story.

"The cause of Gianna's cerebral palsy is not because of some biological freak of nature, but rather the choice of her mother.

"You see when her biological mother was 17-years-old and 7-and-a-half months pregnant, she went to a Planned Parenthood clinic to seek a late-term abortion. The abortionist performed a saline abortion on this 17-year-old girl. This procedure requires the injection of a high concentration of saline into the mother's womb, which the fetus is then bathed in and swallows, which results in the fetus being burned to death, inside and out. Within 24 hours the results are normally an induced, still-born abortion.

"As Gianna can testify, the procedure is not always 100 percent effective. Gianna is an aborted late-term fetus who was born alive. The high concentration of saline in the womb for 24 hours resulted in a lack of oxygen to her brain and is the cause of her cerebral palsy.

"Members, today, we are going to recognize the 90th anniversary of Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood…"

BANG! The gavel came down.

Just as I was finishing the last sentence of my speech — the climax of the morning — the speaker of the House gaveled me down and said, "Representative Harvey, I will allow you to continue your introduction, but not for the purposes of debating a measure now pending before the House."

At which point I said,

"Mr. Speaker, I understand. I just wanted to put a face to what we are celebrating today."

Silence.

Deafening silence.

I then walked back to my chair shaking like a leaf. The Democrats wouldn't look at me. They were fuming. It was beautiful. I have been in the Legislature for five tough years, and this made it all worthwhile.

The House majority leader wouldn't talk to me the rest of the day.

Was it because I introduced an abortion survivor, or was it because we touched her soul? She could congratulate an inspirational cerebral palsy victim and advocate, but was outraged when she discovered that the person she congratulated was also an abortion survivor.

The headline in The Denver Post the next day read "Abortion Jab Earns Rebuke." The majority leader is quoted as saying, "I think it was amazingly rude to use a human being as an example of his personal politics."

Yes, Representative Madden, Gianna Jessen is a human being. She was when she was in her mother's womb, and she was when she sang the national anthem on the floor of the Colorado House of Representatives.

The paper went on to quote Gianna, stating she was glad I told her story.

"We need to discuss the humanity of it. I'm glad to be able to speak up for children in the womb," she said. "If abortion is about women's rights, where were my rights?"

All I can say is, "Glory to God!" He orchestrated it all, every minute of it, and I was so honored to have been chosen to play a part. May we all continue to be filled with and to fight for the passion of our Lord Jesus Christ!

Thank you for that extra information. Given my background of adoption I already knew a little about it. It's a horrific technique. I have no reservations at all understanding how someone subjected to this technique, if they survive, can be horribly injured. Please understand that I'm not really trying to be argumentative. However, your post still does not provide the mechanism of hypoxia as the postulated cause for her CP.

I guess how her hypoxia came about could have been cause by toxicity. How she escaped horrible injury is probably due to what we Christians call a miracle. I know as a Christian you believe in that. If you want to look at a medical reason for how she escaped horrible injury, maybe the solution given wasn't strong enough to cause severe burns or maybe she aborted faster.. before it could burn her skin. Only God knows the answer.

Gotta run and get back to work. Lunch break over, LOL! Have a nice day.

I assert based on the NIH site, which frankly I believe is more authoritative than the links you gave, that the attribution of CP to lack of oxygen is tentative and not fully medically proved. If you want I can go dig up the links upon which they base that and they will be just as authoritative as the Cleveland Clinic. The NIH represents the nationwide medical consensus which is "undecided". Some individual practitioners and medical practices will agree and some will not. There's a reason they call it the "practice" of medicine and there's a reason people go for second opinions. There are no medical certainties. All I'm asking is that you admit there might be some uncertainties.

But if you want to play the dueling links game, here's the Mayo Clinic

Treatment of Cerebral Palsy at Mayo Clinic

However, doctors don't completely understand the cause of most cases of cerebral palsy, which are present at birth (congenital). For many years, doctors and researchers believed that cerebral palsy was caused by a lack of oxygen during birth. Now they believe that only a small number of cases are caused by problems during labor and delivery.[my bold]

Doctors and researchers have now identified many possible causes of congenital cerebral palsy, including:

* Maternal infection during pregnancy, such as rubella or other viral infections

* Severe jaundice in newborns, which may be caused by infection, severe bruising or problems with red blood cells due to ABO or Rh incompatibility — two incompatibilities between the blood of the mother and her fetus

* Abnormal brain development before birth, resulting from genetic causes or metabolic disorders

* Disturbance to brain circulation before birth, caused by an artery spasm or blood clot, similar to a stroke in adults


Note that they specifically say that the oxygen starvation theory is out of date and now not thought to produce any but a small number of cases. Because of her unique birth she may be the one in a million but how can you not admit there is some doubt? There is clearly not the level of certainty as presented by Harvey.

In Jessen's case it makes no difference in the sense that she could have been born healthy and her effectiveness as an anti-abortion advocate would be unaffected. I do think that the science was too unsettled for John Edwards to destroy a doctor's career and transfer millions of dollars from our pockets into his. If you are insulted by holding the same medical opinions as John Edwards then that's not something I can do anything about. I do believe that Harvey/Jessen and Edwards both overstated the linkage between birth hypoxia and CP. Their motives for doing so are almost certainly different.

As confirmation, after the number of C-sections in NC skyrocketed as a result of John Edward win in court the incidence of CP remained unchanged. If there is a cause and effect it should have shown up.

We may be working at cross meanings. I was criticizing Harvey's actions with regard to the Colorado legislature and not Jessen's story. I do not doubt her story in the least.

The only exception I might have is the claimed medical relationship between the attempted abortion, the lack of oxygen during birth and her cerebral palsy and she simply may be repreating what the doctors told her at the time, and some of the medical thinking has changed since then.

There is a lot of her story that is not in the above article. Could you give me a summary of the book and what it adds?

Really? If your attitude is that the only authorative sites are yours, I'm done debating with you. I feel that you're angry because you were proven to be wrong when you stated with absolute surety that it wasn't caused by lack of oxygen to the brain and I showed sites where it was.

Not only were you so sure of yourself, you went on to insult people who didn't agree with you by putting them in the same class as John Edwards. Actually, Edwards was right in this case and you weren't.

Now I can pull up as many or more sites that contradict that of Mayo Clinic which is not as highly esteemed in America as the Cleveland Clinic. To what avail? Just to have you say that yours are more authorative? I don't have time to play games.

I never stated categorically, as you are doing, one way or the other the origin of hers or anyone elses CP. Reread my post. I'm saying it's an open question, but you just can't admit any level of uncertainty can you? You're right and everyone else is wrong? Done indeed.

Reality is far more insidious. The leftist defending the slaughter of unborn alive children know damn well the children are alive in the womb; the truly sick and dirty truth is, they deem the slaughter a right of women ... that's right, the leftists defending this holocaust believe it is right to promote the wholesale slaughter because it empowers liberalism. THAT is demonic in nature, a concept the left scoffs the louder at, spitting in God's eye every time they do it yet they do it under the satanic guise of religion, with people like Revs. Barry Lynd and Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson, and professional liar politicians like Al Goreghoul, and bill'pants on fire'clinton, and Dungheap Harkin, and Babs'catbox'Boxer, Ted'the swimmer'Kennedy, and ... well, the list is too long to place it all on this thread, but suffice it to say the list is mostly full of democrat party leadership, with a Specter and a Frist tossed in here and there. There is no delusion, it is willful service to evil for empowerment's sake.

I saw Gianna Jessen on a television talk show when she was still a teenage girl. I think she was fourteen at the time. Even then she was beautiful, well-spoken, and absolutely awesome.

The truth of her message reveals the shame and lies that Planned Parenthood is based on. I'll bet that Planned Parenthood would love to put a hit on the girl and finish the job they botched all those years ago.

The article no anyone on this thread ever said if they State House went ahead and voted to honor Rocky Mountain PP's 90th anniversary of if the vote was cancelled, failed or what.

You assert something and I suggest that the situation might be not quite be that clear cut. Neither of you can stand having someone question your dogmatic hard-wired narrow-minded point of view and then have a civil discussion about the issue wih an admission the other guy might have a point.

Your problem, not mine.

p.s. If you're getting your philosophy of life from Seinfeld you might want to work on that.

Excuse me, but "dogmatic, hard wired narrow minded point of view" brings this conversation down to a personal level. I suggest that you take ten deep breaths and calm down.

"I don't agree that Christians are the ONLY group. But if you're going to hold yourself up as a standard of moral authority then you had better live it word and deed. A different (higher) standard is exactly right.

That the majority of the world knows nothing of the realities of the Christian life--and more importantly, has little or no interest and/or respect for it--yet feels more absolute freedom i.e., greater "righteous indignation"--to jump on anyone who calls themself a Christian they perceive as having stepped over the bounds of what they think they know about being a "good Christian"--in a way that NO other group is faced with is known to be a fact by anyone who has truly attempted the Christian life in the world for any length of time.

It's just part of the spiritual warfare raging all around us that for Christians to say something is wrong is bigotry, but to make generalizations about Christians being "narrow minded", "hateful", "bigots", etc, etc is somehow exempt from such immediate blanket condemnation.

For anyone to say otherwise is about a valid as a white person dismissing the claims of personal experiences of racism by a black person by telling him or her that there is no racial prejudice toward black people in this nation and they can prove it because they them self have never experienced it.

I think it is fair to say that anyone truly attempting to live the Christian life would likely agree as result of personal experience that the world (those with zero understanding of/interest in/respect for the Christian life) feel free to criticize Christians' for perceived failures like NO other group in the world.

Personally I think it is a mistake for Christians to sound as if we see ourselves in the role of standing in judgment of the behaviors of others as if we "hold yourself up as a standard of moral authority". Many of the Christians I've known do not go around doing this, yet it is common that anyone who has publicly identified himself as Christian is attacked as if by hungry jackals as if they do whenever they have some "sin" exposed.

As Christians, we are not trying to earn our salvation or even favor with God, but rather seek to live according to a higher standard to serve and to bring honor to God-- but, of course, we fight our selfish human nature and constantly fall short.

The only real "higher standard" is between us and the Lord. And, I agree, any true believer has an obligation to hold ourselves to a higher standard, according to the level of our maturity in our faith, and part of Christian fellowship includes holding each other to account. But what I was referring to is the open season on Christians, which is about a valid as someone who has never even heard of baseball before being told its about using a bat to hit a ball and score runs and then being told to go and umpire a game.

Most true Christians I know acknowledge themselves as merely "sinners saved by grace", but are accused of being "self-righteous" and "giving Christianity a bad name" if we dare say we think something is wrong.

I know for myself I DO sound "righteous" sometimes, but it is generally due to a combination my own human weaknesses--I seem to somehow fall well short of the perfection of Christ every time-- as well as an at least somewhat justified indignation at hearing the same trite criticisms from those who don't have any idea what they're talking about.

True.

I sometimes wonder why some feel a need to pursue truth and others are not bothered by such a nagging need, but once we acknowledge that there is such a thing as absolute, unchanging truth among the tangle of lies and illusions it is impossible to be have any level of self-respect without making an effort to live it--imperfect as our efforts will always be.

"...honoring the 90th anniversary of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains."

Something tells me they would be more reluctant to honor the anniversary of the death-penalty. But then again, the death penalty kills murderers and rapists, so the democRATs wouldn't be able to fulfill their lust for killing babies.

PS: If all the murderers and rapists got the death-penalty, there would be no more democRAT politicians.
