“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Gianna Jessen: The Most Dangerous Woman in America

Back in June, I wrote a post about whom I thought was the most dangerous woman in America, Oprah Winfrey. I am beginning to think that I may have gotten it wrong. The most dangerous woman in America may be Gianna Jessen.

Pro-life columnist Mona Charen yesterday contributed to the end of the lie that babies never survive an abortion attempt. She brings up the Jill Stanek story, that I covered, and The Born Alive Infant Protection Act that Barack Obama provided the only vote against in the Illinois State legislature.

Charen also cited a lab technician’s story, Shelley Lowe, who testified with Stanek but whose story is less known, and her experience with a baby who survived an abortion:

"A young woman who had undergone just the first cervix-opening phase of a partial-birth abortion gave birth in the emergency room. The doctor placed the 22-week-old baby in a specimen dish to be taken to the lab. According to the report, when Ms. Lowe "saw the baby girl in the dish she was stunned when she saw the girl gasping for air. 'I don't think I can do that,' Ms. Lowe reportedly said. 'This baby is alive.'" Lowe asked permission to hold the baby until she died. She wrapped the child she dubbed "Baby Hope" in a blanket and sang to her. Breathing room air without any other supports, Baby Hope lived for three hours."

Gianna Jessen was the same as this baby in the specimen dish but she survived to become a living adult. After being burned in uterine with saline solution for 18 hours, this baby’s will to live resulted in the abortion doctor having to sign her birth certificate. She weighed only 2 pounds at birth. At 17 months, she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy; a byproduct of the lack of oxygen her brain received during the abortion attempt.

Hariet Beecher Stowe is credit by most to be a contributing factor to the American Civil War. Abraham Lincoln was quoted as having declared, "So this is the little lady who made this big war." Stowe ignited the Abolitionist Movement with her book, Uncle Tom’s Cabin. It allowed white people to see slavery through the eyes of a slave. How children were ripped away from their mothers in the slave trade, their horrible treatment and how they did infact belong to the same God. It forced Americans to humanly relate to the slaves, and acknowledge the truth. Stowe provided a figurative voice for the voiceless.

Gianna Jessen, is extremely dangerous because she is doing the same exact thing. You are actually talking to that "clump of cells", that pro-abortionists claim is not a life and should not have any rights. You see the difficulties she has in life caused by an inherently evil procedure. She can speak for the 46 million babies who can not because they were successfully killed by their abortion since Roe v. Wade. She will force people to humanly relate to fetuses and acknowledge the truth that they are people - members of the same race - and entitled to protection. Jessen is providing a literal voice for the voiceless.

Jessen was on Hannity and Colmes this week. As she told her incredible story and the truth of what she was saying overcame the studio, it was Alan Colmes’ turn to "cross-examine" her. You could tell there was nowhere he would least like to be. He did not know how to handle her. What was he going to say, "Congratulations on making it through your botched abortion?" Fr. Corapi always says, "The truth, is the truth, is the truth!" It does not change. Man, despite his efforts, can not position the truth any differently from what it is, it exists exclusively to anything else.

With this understanding, please click on this link and play the commercial that features Gianna Jessen, and you will see why she is the most dangerous woman in America.
