An abortion survivor speaks

A new pro-life group in the United States is running an advertising campaign drawing attention to Barack Obama's opposition to legislation intended to protect babies born alive after abortion. Born Alive Truth centres around the incredible story of Gianna Jesson, a 31-year-old who was the victim of a saline abortion at 7 1/2 months and survived 18 hours being burned in her mother's womb before being delivered alive. The abortionist was not on duty when she emerged, so a nurse called an ambulance and her life was saved. The Born Alive Truth website features Gianna's ad and a television interview and debate on Obama's position.
