Giffords, who sustained brain damage after she was shot at an event with constituents in 2011, spoke during a segment on gun control. She said: ‘Today, I struggle with speech but I have not lost my voice. America needs all of us to speak out, even when you have to fight to find the words.’
A spokesperson for Giffords said she spent ‘countless hours’ practising the speech, the longest she has delivered since the shooting.
