  • AND I KNOW I WOULD HAVE THAT CHILD HERE TODAY.
  • 00:09:24.110 --> 00:09:27.280
  • YES, THERE'S NO DOUBT IN MY MIND.
  • 00:09:28.000 --> 00:09:31.100
  • WE TRY TO FILL THAT HOLE WITH SO MANY THINGS,
  • 00:09:33.220 --> 00:09:37.270
  • AND THE ONLY THING THAT CAN FILL IT IS GOD.
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:40.030
  • LEARN TO KNOW HIM AND ACCEPT HIS FORGIVENESS
  • 00:09:40.050 --> 00:09:43.010
  • AND HIS GRACE AND ALL THOSE THINGS THAT HOLE WAS
  • 00:09:43.030 --> 00:09:45.120
  • FILLED. I WAS A CHRISTIAN AND STILL WASN'T HEALED
  • 00:09:45.140 --> 00:09:49.110
  • FROM HAVING AN ABORTION. I MEAN, GOD FORGAVE ME.
  • 00:09:49.130 --> 00:09:52.250
  • I BEGGED HIM TO FORGIVE ME SO HE HAD ALREADY
  • 00:09:52.270 --> 00:09:54.200
  • FORGIVEN ME, BUT I WAS STILL THIS OOZING OPEN
  • 00:09:54.220 --> 00:09:58.100
  • WOUND WALKING AROUND UNTIL I LET HIM SAY I'M
  • 00:09:58.120 --> 00:10:02.200
  • GONNA TAKE CARE OF THAT FOR YOU BECAUSE YOU'RE
  • 00:10:02.220 --> 00:10:04.220
  • FINALLY AT YOUR ROCK BOTTOM.
  • 00:10:04.240 --> 00:10:07.090
  • I'VE BEEN TRYING TO GET YOU TO LET ME.
  • 00:10:07.110 --> 00:10:09.140
  • NOW YOU'RE FINALLY LETTING ME.
  • 00:10:09.160 --> 00:10:11.030
  • JUST WAIT AND SEE WHAT WE'RE GONNA DO.
  • 00:10:11.050 --> 00:10:13.030
  • WHAT I NEVER WANTED TO TELL ANYBODY, NOW I'M
  • 00:10:13.050 --> 00:10:15.010
  • READY TO SIT DOWN WITH ANYBODY AND SAY THIS IS
  • 00:10:15.030 --> 00:10:16.220
  • WHAT HAPPENED TO ME.
  • 00:10:16.240 --> 00:10:18.020
  • LET ME TELL YOU WHY I WISH I HADN'T DONE IT BUT
  • 00:10:18.040 --> 00:10:20.080
  • HOW GOD'S TAKING WHAT THE ENEMY MEANT FOR EVIL, AND
  • 00:10:20.100 --> 00:10:22.240
  • HE'S TURNING IT INTO GOOD BY USING MY LIFE FOR GOOD
  • 00:10:22.260 --> 00:10:25.120
  • TO SAVE LOTS OF BABIES.
  • 00:10:25.140 --> 00:10:27.260
  • MY CHILD DIDN'T DIE IN VAIN.
  • 00:10:27.280 --> 00:10:29.280
  • - THERE ARE SOLUTIONS AVAILABLE ALL AROUND THE
  • 00:10:30.280 --> 00:10:33.090
  • NATION THAT OFFER ALTERNATIVES TO WOMEN WHO
  • 00:10:33.110 --> 00:10:35.170
  • HAVE NEVER CONSIDERED THESE KINDS OF RAMIFICATIONS.
  • 00:10:35.190 --> 00:10:39.070
  • DON'T BE AFRAID TO TALK TO TRUSTWORTHY PEOPLE WHO
  • 00:10:39.090 --> 00:10:42.050
  • WILL DO WHATEVER THEY CAN TO HELP YOU THROUGH THIS
  • 00:10:42.070 --> 00:10:45.070
  • LIFE-ALTERING DECISION.
  • 00:10:45.090 --> 00:10:47.090
  • HOWEVER, UNDERSTAND THIS, THERE IS ALSO A DARK
  • 00:10:47.110 --> 00:10:51.150
  • SECRET THAT FEW PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO TALK ABOUT
  • 00:10:51.170 --> 00:10:54.160
  • WHEN IT COMES TO THIS IMPORTANT MATTER FOR YOUR
  • 00:10:54.180 --> 00:10:56.160
  • LIFE. BELIEVE IT OR NOT, SOME PEOPLE HAVE REASONS
  • 00:10:56.180 --> 00:10:59.290
  • TO INFLUENCE YOU INTO A PROCEDURE WHICH ARE LESS
  • 00:11:00.030 --> 00:11:03.070
  • THAN BENEVOLENT TO YOU.
  • 00:11:03.090 --> 00:11:05.240
  • - IN THE UNITED STATES, THERE ARE NEARLY 1600
  • 00:11:12.000 --> 00:11:14.290
  • FACILITIES THAT CONDUCT ABORTIONS.
  • 00:11:15.010 --> 00:11:17.280
  • OFTEN, THE PROCESS IS CONDUCTED WITH ONLY ONE
  • 00:11:18.000 --> 00:11:20.270
  • THING IN MIND AND IT ISN'T THE HEALTH OF THE
  • 00:11:20.290 --> 00:11:23.290
  • MOTHER OR THE BABY.
  • 00:11:24.010 --> 00:11:26.260
  • NOW, ONE FORMER WORKER IS SHARING HER INSIDE STORY
  • 00:11:26.280 --> 00:11:30.120
  • ON THE ABORTION INDUSTRY.
  • 00:11:30.140 --> 00:11:32.140
  • - I HAD AN ABORTION, COULDN'T DEAL WITH IT,
  • 00:11:32.160 --> 00:11:35.010
  • COULDN'T JUSTIFY IT.
  • 00:11:35.030 --> 00:11:37.270
  • I FOUND A WAY TO DO THAT BY SELLING OTHER WOMEN
  • 00:11:39.110 --> 00:11:42.030
  • ABORTIONS. I SAW THE PROFIT.
  • 00:11:42.050 --> 00:11:47.260
  • I SAW THAT I COULD BE A MILLIONAIRE SELLING ABORTIONS.
  • 00:11:48.170 --> 00:11:54.050
  • AND MY GOAL WAS TO SELL 40.000 ABORTIONS A YEAR
  • 00:11:54.070 --> 00:11:56.270
  • BECAUSE MY COMMISSION WAS $25 DOLLARS FOR EACH
  • 00:11:56.290 --> 00:11:59.170
  • ABORTION. AND I PLANNED TO BE A MILLIONAIRE.
  • 00:11:59.190 --> 00:12:07.140
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:12:07.160 --> 00:12:13.260
  • YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT A WOMAN'S
  • 00:12:13.280 --> 00:12:15.090
  • RIGHT, HER CHOOSING AN ABORTION, ALL THESE
  • 00:12:15.110 --> 00:12:18.160
  • FUNCTIONAL THINGS YOU HEAR THE PRO-CHOICE
  • 00:12:18.180 --> 00:12:20.280
  • PEOPLE SAY IN THEIR ANGRY VOICES AND CLENCHED
  • 00:12:21.000 --> 00:12:22.260
  • FISTS, IT'S REALLY ABOUT MONEY AT EVERY LEVEL.
  • 00:12:22.280 --> 00:12:27.240
  • I NEVER ADMITTED WHAT I WAS DOING WAS WRONG,
  • 00:12:28.150 --> 00:12:31.210
  • BUT DEEP IN MY HEART I BELIEVE I ALWAYS
  • 00:12:31.230 --> 00:12:33.150
  • KNEW IT WAS WRONG.
  • 00:12:33.170 --> 00:12:36.140
  • YOU CAN'T KILL ON A DAILY BASIS AND NOT RECOGNIZE
  • 00:12:39.140 --> 00:12:41.240
  • THAT YOU'RE KILLING.
  • 00:12:41.260 --> 00:12:44.150
  • BUT I PRAYED. I TITHED.
  • 00:12:45.200 --> 00:12:50.290
  • I FELT COMFORTED THAT I COULD SEND MONEY TO THE
  • 00:12:52.240 --> 00:12:54.220
  • CHURCH IN LARGE AMOUNTS AND, UM, I REALLY THINK
  • 00:12:54.240 --> 00:12:59.290
  • NOW I MUST HAVE DEEP IN MY HEART BELIEVED I WAS
  • 00:13:00.030 --> 00:13:01.290
  • BUYING MY WAY TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:13:02.010 --> 00:13:05.050
  • THE PERSON IN THE ABORTION INDUSTRY HAS
  • 00:13:06.020 --> 00:13:07.170
  • BEEN DEEPLY HURT BY SOMETHING BEFORE THEY
  • 00:13:07.190 --> 00:13:09.200
  • WALK THROUGH THAT DOOR.
  • 00:13:09.220 --> 00:13:12.030
  • HEALTHY PEOPLE DO NOT WALK THROUGH THE DOOR OF
  • 00:13:12.050 --> 00:13:14.000
  • ABORTION CLINICS TO BE PART OF THE INDUSTRY.
  • 00:13:14.020 --> 00:13:18.290
  • MY HEART CHANGED OVER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME TO
  • 00:13:19.010 --> 00:13:22.270
  • UNDERSTAND WHERE I'D COME FROM AND
  • 00:13:22.290 --> 00:13:24.240
  • WHAT I'D BEEN A PART OF.
  • 00:13:24.260 --> 00:13:27.100
  • - MEET NOW GIANNA JESSON.
  • 00:13:35.210 --> 00:13:37.230
  • SHE'S ONE OF THOSE WHO DIRECTLY SUFFERED
  • 00:13:37.250 --> 00:13:39.260
  • CONSEQUENCES AS A RESULT OF THE CHOICE OF OTHERS.
  • 00:13:39.280 --> 00:13:43.190
  • SHE'S FACED A LEVEL OF ADVERSITY THAT IS
  • 00:13:43.210 --> 00:13:45.220
  • UNIMAGINABLE, BUT SHE HAS FACED IT
  • 00:13:45.240 --> 00:13:49.030
  • WITH DARING AND TENACITY.
  • 00:13:49.050 --> 00:13:51.270
  • - MY MEDICAL RECORDS, IS AWESOME, SAY BORN DURING
  • 00:13:53.050 --> 00:13:57.150
  • SALINE ABORTION APRIL 6, 1977 TWO AND A HALF POUNDS,
  • 00:13:57.170 --> 00:14:02.050
  • TWENTY-NINE AND A HALF WEEKS.
  • 00:14:02.070 --> 00:14:04.190
  • BOTH OF MY BIOLOGICAL PARENTS WERE 17 YEARS
  • 00:14:04.210 --> 00:14:07.230
  • OLD, AND MY BIOLOGICAL MOTHER WENT TO PLANNED
  • 00:14:07.250 --> 00:14:10.290
  • PARENTHOOD AND THEY SAID YOU ARE TOO YOUNG TO HAVE
  • 00:14:11.010 --> 00:14:13.280
  • A BABY, YOU NEED TO GO HAVE A LATE-TERM SALINE
  • 00:14:14.000 --> 00:14:17.050
  • ABORTION. A SALINE ABORTION IS A SALINE SALT SOLUTION
  • 00:14:17.070 --> 00:14:21.040
  • INJECTED INTO THE MOTHER'S WOMB.
  • 00:14:21.060 --> 00:14:23.150
  • BABY GULPS THAT SOLUTION, IT BURNS THE BABY INSIDE
  • 00:14:23.170 --> 00:14:27.060
  • AND OUT, IT'S TO BLIND AND SUFFOCATE THE CHILD,
  • 00:14:27.080 --> 00:14:30.120
  • AND THEN THE BABY IS TO BE BORN DEAD WITHIN 24 HOURS.
  • 00:14:30.140 --> 00:14:34.080
  • BUT AFTER 18 HOURS OF ALL OF THAT, INSTEAD
  • 00:14:34.100 --> 00:14:36.270
  • OF BEING BORN DEAD, I WAS BORN ALIVE.
  • 00:14:36.290 --> 00:14:41.250
  • IT IS A COMPLETE MIRACLE THAT I GOT OUT OF THE
  • 00:14:41.270 --> 00:14:45.210
  • ABORTION CLINIC ALIVE.
  • 00:14:45.230 --> 00:14:47.180
  • NOT ONLY THAT I SURVIVED, BUT IT'S COMMON PRACTICE
  • 00:14:47.200 --> 00:14:50.140
  • FOR ABORTIONISTS TO STRANGLE, SUFFOCATE OR
  • 00:14:50.160 --> 00:14:53.170
  • LEAVE A BABY THERE TO DIE THAT HAS SURVIVED ITS ABORTION.
  • 00:14:53.190 --> 00:14:58.240
  • BUT A NURSE WAS THERE AND THE ABORTIONIST WAS NOT
  • 00:14:58.260 --> 00:15:01.250
  • AT WORK YET, AND SO HE DIDN'T HAVE A CHANCE TO
  • 00:15:01.270 --> 00:15:06.080
  • STRANGLE ME, SO THAT'S HOW I BEGAN.
  • 00:15:06.100 --> 00:15:11.260
  • I WAS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR ABOUT TWO-AND-A-HALF
  • 00:15:13.100 --> 00:15:17.260
  • MONTHS FROM THAT POINT.
  • 00:15:17.280 --> 00:15:19.090
  • THEY SAID I WOULD DIE. DIDN'T DIE.
  • 00:15:19.110 --> 00:15:21.220
  • BECAUSE I DON'T DIE. IT'S NOT WHAT I DO.
  • 00:15:21.240 --> 00:15:25.180
  • AND THEN PLACED EVENTUALLY IN EMERGENCY
  • 00:15:25.200 --> 00:15:29.090
  • FOSTER CARE WITH A BUNCH OF MORONS WHO DECIDED
  • 00:15:29.110 --> 00:15:32.180
  • THEY DIDN'T LIKE ME, SO THEY WOULD SHUT ME
  • 00:15:32.200 --> 00:15:34.190
  • IN A ROOM FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME.
  • 00:15:34.210 --> 00:15:36.220
  • SO I WAS TAKEN OUT OF THAT HOME AND PLACED IN A
  • 00:15:36.240 --> 00:15:39.100
  • BEAUTIFUL FOSTER HOME.
  • 00:15:39.120 --> 00:15:42.100
  • SO BY THIS TIME IN THE STORY, I WAS 17 MONTHS
  • 00:15:42.120 --> 00:15:45.220
  • OLD, 32 POUNDS OF DEAD WEIGHT AND DIAGNOSED WITH
  • 00:15:45.240 --> 00:15:49.100
  • CEREBRAL PALSY CAUSED DIRECTLY BY A LACK OF
  • 00:15:49.120 --> 00:15:52.140
  • OXYGEN TO MY BRAIN WHILE I WAS SURVIVING AN ABORTION.
  • 00:15:52.160 --> 00:15:55.260
  • SO I WOULD NOT BE DISABLED HAD I NOT
  • 00:15:55.280 --> 00:15:58.120
  • SURVIVED AN ABORTION.
  • 00:15:58.140 --> 00:16:00.190
  • BUT YOU CAN IMAGINE HOW HORRIFIED I FEEL WHEN I
  • 00:16:00.210 --> 00:16:03.160
  • HEAR THE ARGUMENT IF THE BABY IS DISABLED,
  • 00:16:03.180 --> 00:16:06.260
  • WE NEED TO TERMINATE THE PREGNANCY.
  • 00:16:06.280 --> 00:16:10.000
  • I MEAN, WHO ARE YOU HEALTHY PERSON TO
  • 00:16:10.020 --> 00:16:12.050
  • DETERMINE WHAT MY QUALITY OF LIFE IS BASED ON
  • 00:16:12.070 --> 00:16:15.030
  • YOUR OWN PERCEPTION?
  • 00:16:15.050 --> 00:16:16.210
  • YOU HAVE NO IDEA THE GLORIES AND THE BEAUTIES
  • 00:16:16.230 --> 00:16:20.090
  • THAT ARE INHERENT IN ADVERSITY AND OVERCOMING.
  • 00:16:20.110 --> 00:16:26.280
  • I WAS THEN EVENTUALLY ADOPTED BY MY FOSTER
  • 00:16:27.000 --> 00:16:31.260
  • MOTHER PENNY'S DAUGHTER AND ALSO MY
  • 00:16:31.280 --> 00:16:34.190
  • PROGNOSIS WAS HORRIBLE.
  • 00:16:34.210 --> 00:16:36.120
  • EVERY DOCTOR SAID I WOULD NEVER MOVE, I WOULD NEVER
  • 00:16:36.140 --> 00:16:38.200
  • GET OUT OF A BED, I WOULD ALWAYS LIE THERE FOR THE
  • 00:16:38.220 --> 00:16:41.090
  • REST OF MY LIFE, SO WHEN I HEAR THE EGO AND THE
  • 00:16:41.110 --> 00:16:45.150
  • ARROGANCE OF PEOPLE TODAY SAY THAT BABY OR THAT
  • 00:16:45.170 --> 00:16:50.110
  • PERSON SHOULD JUST BE GIVEN A LITTLE PILL TO
  • 00:16:50.130 --> 00:16:54.190
  • DIE BECAUSE THEIR PROGNOSIS IS HORRIBLE,
  • 00:16:54.210 --> 00:16:56.260
  • YOU HAVE NO IDEA THE POWER OF GOD AND
  • 00:16:56.280 --> 00:16:59.150
  • WHAT HE CAN DO.
  • 00:16:59.170 --> 00:17:01.140
  • SO THEY SAID I WOULD NEVER MOVE, GET OUT OF A
  • 00:17:01.160 --> 00:17:03.080
  • BED, AND I WAS WALKING BY THE AGE OF THREE AND A
  • 00:17:03.100 --> 00:17:06.040
  • HALF WITH A WALKER AND LEG BRACES.
  • 00:17:06.060 --> 00:17:09.060
  • IT TOOK A STRONG WILL TO SURVIVE BEING BURNED
  • 00:17:09.080 --> 00:17:11.070
  • ALIVE IN MY MOTHER'S WOMB FOR 18 HOURS.
  • 00:17:11.090 --> 00:17:14.010
  • IT TOOK A STRONG WILL TO LEARN HOW TO WALK ONCE
  • 00:17:14.030 --> 00:17:15.240
  • AND THEN TWICE AFTER SPINAL SURGERY AT TEN.
  • 00:17:15.260 --> 00:17:20.060
  • IT TOOK A STRONG WILL TO COMPLETE TWO MARATHONS
  • 00:17:20.080 --> 00:17:22.070
  • BY RUNNING ON MY TOES.
  • 00:17:22.090 --> 00:17:23.260
  • IT TOOK A STRONG WILL TO STAND FOR JESUS WHEN
  • 00:17:23.280 --> 00:17:26.110
  • PEOPLE ONLY WANT WHAT I CALL THE COCKTAIL PARTY JESUS.
  • 00:17:26.130 --> 00:17:30.040
  • IT TAKES A STRONG WILL.
  • 00:17:30.060 --> 00:17:32.200
  • SO IF YOU HAVE A KID THAT'S DRIVING YOU CRAZY,
  • 00:17:32.220 --> 00:17:34.210
  • GO FREAK OUT IN THE OTHER ROOM, BUT KNOW THAT
  • 00:17:34.230 --> 00:17:37.030
  • YOU HAVE A KID THAT MOST LIKELY WILL CHANGE THIS
  • 00:17:37.050 --> 00:17:39.100
  • WORLD WHEN EVERYONE ELSE IS RUNNING FOR THE HILLS.
  • 00:17:39.120 --> 00:17:43.100
  • SO YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT MY DESTINY IS, AND NOBODY
  • 00:17:43.120 --> 00:17:46.130
  • CAN TELL ANY VIEWER WHAT THEIR DESTINY IS.
  • 00:17:46.150 --> 00:17:48.280
  • ONLY GOD CAN.
  • 00:17:49.000 --> 00:17:51.290
  • I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING HEAL ANYONE
  • 00:17:52.010 --> 00:17:56.230
  • COMPLETELY OTHER THAN JESUS.
  • 00:17:56.250 --> 00:17:58.290
  • THE ONLY PERSON THAT CAN SET YOU FREE FROM THAT
  • 00:17:59.010 --> 00:18:01.080
  • ABORTION IS HIM.
  • 00:18:01.100 --> 00:18:03.190
  • I'VE MET MY BIOLOGICAL MOTHER.
  • 00:18:03.210 --> 00:18:07.020
  • SHE CAME TO AN EVENT ONCE AND SAID, HI,
  • 00:18:07.040 --> 00:18:08.290
  • I'M YOUR MOTHER.
  • 00:18:09.010 --> 00:18:10.190
  • AND THERE WAS NO WARNING.
  • 00:18:10.210 --> 00:18:12.160
  • AND I PRAYED IN MY HEAD, AND I SAID, MA'AM, I'M A
  • 00:18:12.180 --> 00:18:19.060
  • CHRISTIAN, AND I FORGIVE YOU.
  • 00:18:19.080 --> 00:18:22.140
  • SHE SAID, I DON'T WANT YOUR FORGIVENESS!
  • 00:18:22.160 --> 00:18:25.020
  • YOUR FATHER IS THIS, AND YOU ARE THIS, AND YOU ARE
  • 00:18:25.040 --> 00:18:27.150
  • THIS, AND YOU ARE THIS.
  • 00:18:27.170 --> 00:18:29.050
  • AND SHAME AND RAGE JUST POURING OUT.
  • 00:18:29.070 --> 00:18:33.080
  • I MEAN, IT WAS ALMOST AS IF, HOW DARE YOU LIVE!
  • 00:18:33.100 --> 00:18:36.120
  • HOW DARE YOU LIVE!
  • 00:18:36.140 --> 00:18:38.110
  • AND REMIND ME.
  • 00:18:38.130 --> 00:18:43.150
  • AND THE REASON I TELL YOU THAT IS TWO FOLD.
  • 00:18:43.170 --> 00:18:48.050
  • FORGIVENESS IS SO IMPORTANT.
  • 00:18:48.070 --> 00:18:51.030
  • BITTERNESS IS A GREAT WAY TO DIE WHILE
  • 00:18:51.050 --> 00:18:53.150
  • YOU'RE STILL ALIVE.
  • 00:18:53.170 --> 00:18:56.090
  • AND NUMBER THREE, NONE OF US NEED TO BE DEFINED BY
  • 00:18:56.110 --> 00:18:59.270
  • WHERE WE COME FROM.
  • 00:18:59.290 --> 00:19:02.030
  • I'M NOT DEFINED BY WHAT SHE SAID.
  • 00:19:02.050 --> 00:19:04.290
  • I'M DEFINED BY JESUS.
  • 00:19:05.010 --> 00:19:07.250
  • I'M JUST NOT ACCEPTING DEFEAT.
  • 00:19:07.270 --> 00:19:11.070
  • I HAVE TOLD THE ENEMY OF MY SOUL SO HE CAN HEAR IT.
  • 00:19:11.090 --> 00:19:18.030
  • I HAVE SAID I DON'T CARE IF I HAVE TO CRAWL TO HEAVEN.
  • 00:19:18.050 --> 00:19:22.120
  • I AM NEVER GIVING UP.
  • 00:19:22.140 --> 00:19:25.130
  • I DON'T CARE WHAT HAPPENS.
  • 00:19:25.150 --> 00:19:26.280
  • I AM NEVER QUITTING. SO HAVE A NICE DAY.
  • 00:19:27.000 --> 00:19:31.070
  • - WOW, WHAT AN INCREDIBLE STORY.
  • 00:19:34.170 --> 00:19:37.180
  • CAN YOU IMAGINE?
  • 00:19:37.200 --> 00:19:39.170
  • HATS OFF TO THE COURAGE AND DETERMINATION THAT
  • 00:19:39.190 --> 00:19:42.120
  • GIANNA HAS TAKEN TO OVERCOME THE CHALLENGES
  • 00:19:42.140 --> 00:19:44.150
  • IN HER LIFE, AND SHE'S DONE IT WITH TRUE GRIT.
  • 00:19:44.170 --> 00:19:49.020
  • AND NOW OUR NEXT STORY COMES FROM A YOUNG WOMAN
  • 00:19:49.040 --> 00:19:51.190
  • WHOSE BEST FRIEND HELPED HER THROUGH SOMETHING SHE
  • 00:19:51.210 --> 00:19:55.010
  • HAD NO IDEA WAS EVEN HAPPENING.
  • 00:19:55.030 --> 00:19:58.210
  • - BEING PREGNANT AT 13 IS HORRIBLE.
  • 00:19:59.280 --> 00:20:04.010
  • YOU FEEL HUMILIATED.
  • 00:20:04.030 --> 00:20:06.150
  • YOU FEEL LIKE YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS.
  • 00:20:06.170 --> 00:20:13.110
  • I MEAN, YOU'RE TRAPPED.
  • 00:20:13.130 --> 00:20:15.050
  • YOU LOVE THAT BABY...
  • 00:20:15.070 --> 00:20:17.130
  • I DID.
  • 00:20:17.150 --> 00:20:19.040
  • - WHAT SHE WAS ABOUT TO TELL ME WAS ONE OF THE
  • 00:20:19.060 --> 00:20:21.210
  • SADDEST THINGS THAT I HAD EVER HEARD, ONE OF THE
  • 00:20:21.230 --> 00:20:23.240
  • SADDEST THINGS THAT SHE HAD PROBABLY EVER TOLD
  • 00:20:23.260 --> 00:20:28.110
  • ANYONE, BUT IT WAS LIFE-CHANGING.
  • 00:20:28.130 --> 00:20:31.130
  • - YOU TOTALLY DEPEND ON YOUR PARENTS, SO I KNEW I
  • 00:20:31.150 --> 00:20:38.080
  • HAD NO CHOICE.
  • 00:20:38.100 --> 00:20:41.260
  • YOU KNOW, MY MOM'S CHOICE WAS TO GET RID OF THE BABY.
  • 00:20:41.280 --> 00:20:48.190
  • - WHEN SHE APPROACHED HER MOM TO TELL HER THAT
  • 00:20:48.210 --> 00:20:52.150
  • SHE WAS PREGNANT, HER MOM SAID, WELL, YOU'RE 13.
  • 00:20:52.170 --> 00:20:56.260
  • YOU'RE NOT READY TO BE A MOM, AND SO THERE'S ONLY
  • 00:20:56.280 --> 00:20:59.030
  • ONE THING FOR YOU TO DO, AND THAT WAS TO
  • 00:20:59.050 --> 00:21:02.030
  • HAVE AN ABORTION.
  • 00:21:02.050 --> 00:21:04.260
  • - YOU'RE GOING TO DO THIS, AND WE'RE GOING TO
  • 00:21:04.280 --> 00:21:07.010
  • SHUT UP ABOUT IT, AND NO ONE'S GOING TO KNOW, AND
  • 00:21:07.030 --> 00:21:10.100
  • YOU'RE GOING TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL, AND YOU'RE
  • 00:21:10.120 --> 00:21:12.010
  • GOING TO ACT LIKE THINGS ARE NORMAL, BUT THEY
  • 00:21:12.030 --> 00:21:14.280
  • WEREN'T EVER NORMAL.
  • 00:21:15.000 --> 00:21:18.080
  • I HAD A BEST FRIEND.
  • 00:21:18.100 --> 00:21:20.010
  • SHE WAS WITH ME THROUGH EVERYTHING, AND WE
  • 00:21:20.030 --> 00:21:22.250
  • PLAYED BASKETBALL.
  • 00:21:22.270 --> 00:21:24.190
  • WE WERE BOTH VERY ATHLETIC, CHEERLEADING.
  • 00:21:24.210 --> 00:21:27.010
  • I WOULD TELL HER, I'M LIKE, SOMETHING IS
  • 00:21:27.030 --> 00:21:30.110
  • WRONG, YOU KNOW? I'M STILL SICK.
  • 00:21:30.130 --> 00:21:33.120
  • MY BELLY IS STILL GROWING.
  • 00:21:33.140 --> 00:21:36.250
  • ONE DAY IN THE LOCKER ROOM, WE WERE CHANGING,
  • 00:21:36.270 --> 00:21:39.120
  • AND SHE SAID, TANYA, YOU'RE STILL PREGNANT.
  • 00:21:39.140 --> 00:21:42.000
  • - HER MOTHER TOOK HER BACK TO THE SAME ABORTION
  • 00:21:42.020 --> 00:21:44.220
  • DOCTOR, AND THE ABORTION DOCTOR TOLD HER THAT HER
  • 00:21:44.240 --> 00:21:48.190
  • ABORTION HAD BEEN SUCCESSFUL BUT THAT SHE
  • 00:21:48.210 --> 00:21:51.010
  • WAS STILL PREGNANT.
  • 00:21:51.030 --> 00:21:53.000
  • - THEY SAID, THE ONLY WAY THIS COULD EVER HAVE
  • 00:21:53.020 --> 00:21:55.250
  • HAPPENED IS THE FIRST ABORTION I WAS PREGNANT
  • 00:21:55.270 --> 00:21:59.030
  • WITH TWINS, AND HE ONLY GOT ONE OF THE SACKS, AND
  • 00:21:59.050 --> 00:22:03.110
  • JUST TEARING HER AMNIOTIC SACK, BUT NOT GETTING
  • 00:22:03.130 --> 00:22:07.210
  • THE WHOLE BABY.
  • 00:22:07.230 --> 00:22:09.200
  • SO SHE WOULD CONTINUE TO LIVE AND GROW IN THERE .
  • 00:22:09.220 --> 00:22:13.260
  • - SHE HAD BEEN PREGNANT WITH TWINS, AND I HAD
  • 00:22:13.280 --> 00:22:16.040
  • SURVIVED HER ABORTION.
  • 00:22:16.060 --> 00:22:20.180
  • THE FIRST TWO YEARS OF MY LIFE, I ACTUALLY WENT
  • 00:22:20.200 --> 00:22:22.260
  • THROUGH MULTIPLE BODY CASTS AS THE DOCTORS DID
  • 00:22:22.280 --> 00:22:26.070
  • EVERYTHING THEY COULD TO PUT BACK TOGETHER MY BODY
  • 00:22:26.090 --> 00:22:31.070
  • FROM WHAT HAD BEEN DONE FROM THAT ABORTION.
  • 00:22:31.090 --> 00:22:34.230
  • - AND THE WHAT IFS.
  • 00:22:34.250 --> 00:22:37.250
  • IF I WOULDN'T HAVE HAD THAT FIRST ABORTION.
  • 00:22:37.270 --> 00:22:40.220
  • I'D HAVE TWO BABIES.
  • 00:22:40.240 --> 00:22:45.280
  • - SO MANY PEOPLE THINK YOU KNOW, GOSH, CLAIRE,
  • 00:22:47.180 --> 00:22:51.130
  • YOU SURVIVED YOUR MOTHER'S ABORTION.
  • 00:22:51.150 --> 00:22:54.100
  • AREN'T YOU UPSET? AREN'T YOU ANGRY?
  • 00:22:54.120 --> 00:22:58.150
  • THERE WERE SO MANY THINGS IN MY LIFE THAT GOD
  • 00:22:58.170 --> 00:23:01.110
  • HAD FORGIVEN ME FOR.
  • 00:23:01.130 --> 00:23:03.130
  • I KNEW THAT GOD HAD FORGIVEN MY BIRTH
  • 00:23:03.150 --> 00:23:06.150
  • MOTHER, SO I KNEW THAT I SHOULD, TOO.
  • 00:23:06.170 --> 00:23:10.110
  • - EVERY DAY, YOU KNOW, YOU WAKE UP AND WONDER,
  • 00:23:11.060 --> 00:23:16.230
  • OR YOU JUST SEE SOMETHING ON TV AND THINK, YOU
  • 00:23:16.250 --> 00:23:20.110
  • KNOW, IT BRINGS BACK BAD MEMORIES.
  • 00:23:20.130 --> 00:23:27.130
  • IF I COULD TOUCH ONE GIRL TO KNOW THAT SHE HAS A
  • 00:23:27.150 --> 00:23:29.180
  • CHOICE TO NOT HAVE THAT ABORTION, AND TO GIVE
  • 00:23:29.200 --> 00:23:33.180
  • THAT BABY UP, THEN EVERYTHING I DID
  • 00:23:33.200 --> 00:23:37.270
  • WOULD BE WORTH IT.
  • 00:23:37.290 --> 00:23:40.090
  • - AN ABORTION HAS A DOMINO EFFECT, AN EFFECT
  • 00:23:41.010 --> 00:23:44.270
  • THAT WE DON'T REALIZE WHEN WE'RE
  • 00:23:44.290 --> 00:23:47.120
  • MAKING THAT ONE CHOICE.
  • 00:23:47.140 --> 00:23:50.210
  • [MUSIC]
  • 00:23:50.230 --> 00:23:56.160
  • - AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE STORIES THAT WE'VE
  • 00:23:56.180 --> 00:23:58.050
  • JUST SHOWN YOU, OUR CHOICES HAVE CONSEQUENCES
  • 00:23:58.070 --> 00:24:02.050
  • THAT AFFECT EVERYONE AROUND US.
  • 00:24:02.070 --> 00:24:05.000
  • YOU MAY FIND YOURSELF FACING SUCH A CHOICE.
  • 00:24:05.020 --> 00:24:07.240
  • WE AT T.C.B. WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE
  • 00:24:07.260 --> 00:24:10.240
  • ALTERNATIVES TO ABORTION AVAILABLE TO YOU.
  • 00:24:10.260 --> 00:24:14.140
  • ONE SUCH FACILITY RECENTLY OPENED ITS DOORS
  • 00:24:14.160 --> 00:24:16.200
  • IN SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS.
  • 00:24:16.220 --> 00:24:18.170
  • IT'S CALLED THE SANCTUARY OF HOPE.
  • 00:24:18.190 --> 00:24:22.230
  • [APPLAUSE]
  • 00:24:22.250 --> 00:24:25.290
  • - MY OFFICIAL INVOLVEMENT WITH THE
  • 00:24:26.010 --> 00:24:27.220
  • SANCTUARY OF HOPE BEGAN TWO YEARS AGO.
  • 00:24:27.240 --> 00:24:29.240
  • IS THIS THE CARPET FOR ALL OF THE DOWNSTAIRS?
  • 00:24:29.260 --> 00:24:32.170
  • PASTOR HAGEE SELECTED ME FOR THIS POSITION.
  • 00:24:32.190 --> 00:24:35.050
  • I SAW HOW MUCH HE CARED FOR THE UNBORN AND FOR
  • 00:24:35.070 --> 00:24:39.050
  • CHILDREN WHO WERE IN NEED OF A LOVING
  • 00:24:39.070 --> 00:24:40.250
  • AND CARING ENVIRONMENT.
  • 00:24:40.270 --> 00:24:43.090
  • WE NEED TO STAND AS AN OPTION OR AN ALTERNATE
  • 00:24:43.110 --> 00:24:46.100
  • TO ABORTION.
  • 00:24:46.120 --> 00:24:48.050
  • PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS SAYING COME HERE.
  • 00:24:48.070 --> 00:24:50.110
  • WE'LL TAKE CARE OF YOU.
  • 00:24:50.130 --> 00:24:51.190
  • YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE THIS BABY.
  • 00:24:51.210 --> 00:24:52.240
  • WE'RE SAYING, COME TO US.
  • 00:24:52.260 --> 00:24:54.160

  • THAT YOU DO, WE'LL HELP YOU, AND WE'LL ENCOURAGE
  • 00:24:57.100 --> 00:25:00.020
  • YOU. NO JUDGMENT. NO JUDGMENT AT ALL.
  • 00:25:00.040 --> 00:25:03.120
  • THEY ARE DECIDING TO GIVE THE GIFT OF LIFE AND
  • 00:25:03.140 --> 00:25:06.010
  • BECAUSE THAT HAS TOUCHED ME PERSONALLY, WHY WOULD
  • 00:25:06.030 --> 00:25:08.220
  • I NOT SHARE THAT LOVE AND THAT ENCOURAGEMENT WITH THEM?
  • 00:25:08.240 --> 00:25:12.030
  • HAVING HAD THAT PERSONAL EXPERIENCE IN MY LIFE
  • 00:25:12.050 --> 00:25:14.190
  • WITHIN MY FAMILY, I THINK I COME FROM A PLACE IN
  • 00:25:14.210 --> 00:25:17.160
  • WHICH I CAN UNDERSTAND HOW THESE YOUNG
  • 00:25:17.180 --> 00:25:19.080
  • LADIES ARE FEELING.
  • 00:25:19.100 --> 00:25:21.040
  • THESE YOUNG LADIES MAY BE COMING FROM A PLACE OF
  • 00:25:21.060 --> 00:25:23.060
  • HURT, ABUSE, INSECURITY, LOW SELF ESTEEM.
  • 00:25:23.080 --> 00:25:29.090
  • WHY WOULD YOU NOT BE GENUINE AND REAL WITH A
  • 00:25:29.110 --> 00:25:33.250
  • PERSON LIKE THAT?
  • 00:25:33.270 --> 00:25:35.130
  • WHY WOULD YOU PRESENT FAKE?
  • 00:25:35.150 --> 00:25:37.140
  • OUR WHOLE PURPOSE IS TO NURTURE AND CARE AND TAKE
  • 00:25:37.160 --> 00:25:40.230
  • CARE OF THESE YOUNG LADIES, BUT WE ALSO
  • 00:25:40.250 --> 00:25:43.050
  • WANT TO INTRODUCE CHRIST TO THEM.
  • 00:25:43.070 --> 00:25:45.140
  • CHRIST IS NOT FAKE. CHRIST IS VERY REAL.
  • 00:25:45.160 --> 00:25:48.100
  • SO WE NEED TO LIVE IN SUCH A WAY AND PRESENT IN
  • 00:25:48.120 --> 00:25:52.110

  • ABOUT AN ABORTION.
