Interesting read. Very pro-life, as one would expect.

In medicine, a live birth is considered a "complication" of abortion. This young lady has forgiven her birth mother, the abortionist, and a society that almost allowed her to be killed before she drew her first breath.

Wonderful true story that shows the true meaning of the word "choice". Gianna doesn't consider herself a "choice" or a "blob of tissue". She's a human being who was almost murdered and is left handicapped because her mother made a wrong choice. Reminds one that in spite of all the dehumanizing language from the so-called "pro-choice" movement the bottom line is that it's a human life they're talking about. I would recommend this book to anyone.

I first read about Gianna in Focus on the Family's Brio Magazine as a teenager. Her story was so compelling many years ago that it has always stuck with me. When I saw this book in PBS I had to pick it up. It is a quick read and a conversational style that displays Gianna's youth at the time of this writing. I have seen Gianna on YouTube as a grown woman speaking to legislators all over the world. Her testimony of courage, faith, and love for humanity is one that relates to all. This book is not about debating pro-life vs. pro-choice, but it is a biography of an abortion survivor and admittedly will minister to you if you know someone who has had an abortion. Enjoy the read!

Gianna's true story of her life's journey-from being aborted to becoming a spokesperson for pro-life-should be a must-read for every young person in America! A remarkable and touching story of miracles and God's blessings. An inspirational biography from Focus on the Family. This book is in good condition.

As an unborn baby she survived abortion.

As a young girl she battled physical and emotional scars.
As a young woman she boldly speaks the truth about abortion.
This is Gianna's story.

I sat down to read this short book and could not stop.
It was that good. My heart went out to the young mother
and all the choices she had to make. It was interesting
what happened that kept Gianna from being aborted apart
from the Lord's hand in it. A quick easy read but a book
with a lot to say.

Interesting read. Story is about a girl who got pregnant, had an abortion gone wrong, and had the baby. I thought it was a good read, though some parts did get a little slow at times.

This is a book about forgiveness and purpose. Gianna's 17 year old mother had a saline abortion which resulted in the live birth of Gianna. Gianna has since gone on to become a spokesperson for the pro life movement.
