Gianna Jensen is a young woman who has gained attention around the world for her inspiring story of living life as an abortion survivor. Jensen was born two months premature after her failed abortion; weight only 2.5lbs. She spent the first few months of her life in the hospital and then entered the foster system. The failed abortion resulted in Jensen being diagnosed with cerebral palsy and doctors who cared for her said she would never be able to even lift her head. Jensen refused this prognosis and by three years old was able to walk. As an adult she defied the odds further by running marathons.
