Melissa Ohden’s mother had an abortion, an abortion intended to end her life, but Melissa survived.
Never intended to be born alive, Melissa’s 19-year-old single mother was almost 8 months pregnant with Melissa when she went into the she went into the hospital to have a saline infusion for an abortion. This type of abortion involves injecting a toxic saline solution into the amniotic fluids surrounding the pre-born baby in the womb. The intent of the solution is to actually scald the child to death, from the outside in.
Melissa soaked in this solution for 5 days until her mother was induced into labor. The mother gave birth to a dead child, or so everyone believed. That was until one nurse happened to hear a muffled cry. That nurse understood Melissa’s life was worth trying to save, and so she did just that.
Melissa was fortunately adopted into an extremely loving family who saw her inherent beauty, a beauty that Melissa hopes everyone else can see. This video is her message to the world to remind us all that abortion isn’t just a statistic, it’s a human being. SHARE Melissa’s story.
