¬†Gianna Jessen, the US musician from Nashville, who survived abortion at seven and a half months, spoke to a packed committee room in Parliament on Tuesday night, presenting a powerful personal witness to the horror of abortion. David Amess MP chaired the meeting which was hosted by the All-Party Parliamentary Pro-Life Group. and organised by the Alive and Kicking campaign. Baroness Masham of Ilton and David Drew MP were among those attending. Many other MPs and Members of the Lords sent messages of support, and representatives of major pro-life groups were present to hear Gianna speak. "It is impossible for anybody to remain unmoved by Gianna's story," said Citra Abbott, speaking on behalf of 'Alive and Kicking'. "It moves the abortion ebate beyond abstract arguments into the world of human reality. As Gianna asked last night ≠ where were the feminists defending her rights as the abortionist tried to take her life?" 'Alive and Kicking' receive messages from both the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Archbishop of Westminster. These were read out by David Amess at the beginning of the meeting, and the text of both follows: 'I want to send every blessing and good wishes for the occasion. I hope it will raise the profile of this crucial issue for all, inside and outside Parliament.' Archbishop of Canterbury 'I want to assure you of my prayers for this evening's gathering as you listen to Gianna Jessen's moving story. I hope very much that her witness will move this vital issue to the forefront both within Parliament and in society as a whole.' Archbishop of Westminster For more information:
