As you may have heard, today is National Sanctity of Human Life Day…a day to remember the millions upon millions of lives that our nation has lost and that have been turned upside-down because of abortion.
In honor of this day, I thought I’d post a video of a speech given by Gianna Jessen. Gianna is a 32 year-old survivor of an abortion. That’s right. SURVIVOR. As in, she was the baby being aborted. You’ll hear her amazing story in the video.
Today her Twitter simply said “I Lived.”
I like that…and I like her. I think you’ll see why. Girl’s got SPUNK!
One of my all-time favorite books is The Atonement Child by Francine Rivers. It’s a fantastic novel about a young woman faced with a choice about what to do when she finds herself pregnant in the most tragic of circumstances. I first read it in college and couldn’t put it down.
Well, It just so happens that I came upon an extra (slightly used) copy of that book yesterday that I wasn’t sure what to do with…and it just so happens that today is National Sanctity of Life Day…so…how about a blog giveaway?!
If you would like a chance to win my extra copy of the book, simply leave a comment on this post (one comment per person, please) before 11:59 pm this coming Sunday night. I will select a winner by either a random number generator…or just drawing one out of a hat. 🙂
