Gianna Jessen, singer, international speaker, marathon runner with cerebral palsy, and abortion survivor, Gianna will share her powerful life story--from being born alive after a failed abortion to foster care, adoption, facing the challenges of cerebral palsy, and more about her life.ALSO THAT WEEK AT UCONN:
Excerpt from her testimony before the Constitution Subcommittee of the House Judiciary Committee, April 22, 1996:
"My name is Gianna Jessen. I am 19 years of age. I am originally from California, but now reside in Franklin, Tennessee. I am adopted. I have cerebral palsy. My biological mother was 17 years old and seven and one-half months pregnant when she made the decision to have a saline abortion. I am the person she aborted. I lived instead of died..."
April 9th (Monday) showing the National Geographic documentary: "In the Womb: Multiples" at 7pm, free of charge in the theater at UCONN's Student Union (short video previews linked to at that link):
"Expanding on the critically acclaimed In the Womb and In the Womb: Animals, National Geographic explores the extraordinary, never-before-seen world of twins, triplets and quadruplets as they develop in utero. Utilizing groundbreaking technology and amazing 4-D ultrasound images, watch quadruplets as they develop in utero and engage in their first interactions with each other. Can multiples hold hands? When one pushes, does the other push back? Does prenatal game-playing carry over into early childhood? Follow the stories of three expectant mothers from conception to birth and travel inside the womb to see the tiny fetuses begin to interact with each other."
