Gianna Jessen's Introduction to Colorado Politicians Draws Fire from Planned Parenthhood

Rep. Ted Harvey Monday was rebuked Monday for introducing on the House floor a woman who said her cerebral palsy was caused by a botched late-term abortion.

Harvey, R-Highlands Ranch, said he told the woman's story on the same day the House planned to consider a resolution to recognize the 90th anniversary of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains because, "I just wanted to put a face to this celebration...

Gianna Jessen, whom Harvey introduced after she sang the national anthem, said that while she didn't expect it, she was glad Harvey told her story.

"We need to discuss the humanity of it. I'm glad to be able to speak up for children in the womb," she said. "If abortion is about women's rights, where were my rights?"

Not only did this action put Harvey in trouble with from the pro-abortion enthusiasts (what else is new?) but the story in the Denver Post from which the above lines are extracted was obviously slanted. So, a couple of thank-yous are in order to keep these pro-life defenders encouraged. The addresses?
