Gianna Beretta Molla

She gave her life for her child
First Degree, Gianna Beretta Molla is a patron saint of problem pregnancies.  She gave up her life to carry her child to term.  She was beatified in 1994 by Pope John Paul II.

Pam Tebow faced a choice when she was pregnant with her son, Tim.  Doctors urged her to abort her fetus because she was on medications that "would have damaged" her baby.  She refused and Tim was born.  This pro-life superbowl ad was highly controversial.  For the pro-choice view of Pam Tebow's story, click here.
