Terrible Truth Exposed

Hat tip to CPT Tom at Corning Curmudgeon who is carrying this story. He in turn hat tips Mary of Against All Heresies who posted the letter/story.

Representative Ted Harvey, Colorado State Legislature, sickened by the fact that one of the last resolutions in the legistature's session, carried by the House Majority Leader Alice Madden, would be honoring the 90th anniversary of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains. Representative Harvey was disgusted:

As a strong pro-life legislator I was disgusted by the idea that we would pass a resolution honoring this 90 year legacy of genocide. I drove home that night wondering what I could say that might pierce the darkness during the debate on this heinous resolution.

What he found was Gianna Jessen, an abortion survivor:

She then began to give her testimony. When her biological mother was 17 years old and 7 ½ months pregnant she went to a Planned Parenthood clinic to have an abortion. As God would have it, the abortion failed and a beautiful two-pound baby girl was brought into the world. Unfortunately, she was born with cerebral palsy and the doctors thought that she would never survive. The doctors were wrong. Imagine the timing! A survivor of a Planned Parenthood abortion arrived in town just days before the Colorado House of Representatives was to celebrate Planned Parenthood's "wonderful" work.

He arranged for Gianna to talk at the Legistature, not letting anyone know she was there to talk about her "experience" with Planned Parenthood, but rather on her work as a Cerebral Palsy activist. Then, he sprung the trap during his speach on the floor.

This is a great article and a great moment in the fight against the anti-life movement. Go read it....

Rep. Harvey and Gianna have a lot to be proud of, regardless of how many fellow legislators got ticked off. Their bravery is to be commended.

Kudos to Rep. Harvey and Gianna!
