Gianna is an advocate for cerebral palsy

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.


I was, presumably, someone's unwanted pregnancy as I was adopted as an infant in 1957. It's easy enough to understand why I don't support Planned Parenthood. However, I find the manner in which this young lady was sneaked into the Colorado House on false pretenses to be dishonest and unChristian. This is exactly the kind of stunt that gives Christians a bad name.

And it is by no means certain what causes CP

NINDS Cerebral Palsy Information Page

Cerebral palsy may be congenital or acquired after birth. Several of the causes of cerebral palsy that have been identified through research are preventable or treatable: head injury, jaundice, Rh incompatibility, and rubella (German measles).

Research suggests that cerebral palsy results from incorrect cell development early in pregnancy. For example, a group of researchers has recently observed that more than one-third of children with cerebral palsy also have missing enamel on certain teeth. Scientists are also examining other events-such as bleeding in the brain, seizures, and breathing and circulation problems-that threaten the brain of a newborn baby. Some investigators are conducting studies to learn whether certain drugs can help prevent neonatal stroke, and other investigators are examining the causes of low birth-weight. Other scientists are exploring how brain insults (like brain damage from a shortage of oxygen or blood flow, bleeding in the brain, and seizures) can cause the abnormal release of brain chemicals and trigger brain disease.


Flame away.

I just sent this article to the leader of my Pro-Life Ministry at Church.

Every Saturday morning, we group with another parish church to say the rosary in front of an abortion clinic in Miami.

(If anyone receives Florida Catholic, we are written up this issue).

Everyone should hear this woman's story.

I last saw Gianna when she was about 13 years old. It is fantastic to see that she has grown into a Godly woman who is still fighting the battle!

Just awesome! Wish we could've heard her song, as well. God bless her! May God use her to turn around some who have given lip-service to the other side, and now have questions, if not deep regrets!

Ted Harvey needs support. He is running again. How many officials have a backbone to stand up for what is right; in spite of what it can do to their political career.

Let's support him!
