Dear Future President,

               Abortion is a very heavy topic. Abortion should be illegal all over the world. There are 1.2 milion abortions a year. Abortion is murder, it is not a delicate situation it is painful and not fair under any circumstances. I have this opinion because of Gianna Jessen. She is very huge role model in my life. Gianna Jessen was intended to die before birth. She survived a saline abortion. A saline abortion is when slat water is injected into the mother womb which poisons the baby and the baby burns to death. God gave her the gift of life just like the rest of us. She was born 2 months premature and weighed exactly 2 lbs. at birth. She has cerebral palsy. She calls is "a gift from God" which I truly believe. I have met her in person this summer at the LCMS National Youth Gathering in New Orleans. Her session that I went to was remarkable. She really explained why she was happy with her life which made me realized how lucky I am to have such a great life. Her biological mother came to one of her sessions and spoke with her saying "I am your mom" of course Gianna was shocked but not mad. All she said back to her mother was "I forgive you." She could have been furious with her mother but instead she replied calmly and civilized. I for one would have been slightly upset but Gianna has such strong faith that she just simply said "It's okay." She is the happiest person I have ever met. Abortion is not okay it should be prevented.
