    Abortion Survivor Tells Her Story [VIDEO]

    Melissa Ohden, founder of the Abortion Survivors Network, testified Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee that she survived a procedure in 1977 that was intended to scald her to death “from the inside out.”

    Ohden noted that according to Planned Parenthood’s 2013-2014 fiscal report, the nation’s largest abortion provider performed 327,653 in one year.

    “Based on these numbers, 897 children will lose their lives to an abortion completed by Planned Parenthood each and every day. Why do I find this horrific? Because I have a lot in common with these children. I was meant to be one of them. I should have been just another statistic, but by the grace of God, I am more than a statistic,” said Ohden.

    Check out the powerful story:

    “I come here today as a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a Master’s level prepared social worker, and yes, as an abortion survivor. From a ‘botched abortion’ to ‘the dreaded complication’ (a child who lives), I’ve been called just about everything you can imagine, but … as you can see here in my medical records from 1977 … saline infusion for an abortion was done but was unsuccessful,” Ohden said.

    Although Ohden didn’t survive an abortion at Planned Parenthood, she said, “I have long believed that if my birth mother’s abortion would have taken place at a Planned Parenthood, I would not be here today. Completing over 300,000 abortions a year provides them with the experience to make sure that ‘failures’ like me don’t exist.”

    The House of Representatives is considering whether or not Planned Parenthood will be stripped of the roughly $500 million it receives for women’s health services.

    1. This just blows my mind. It shocks and horrifies me every time I hear it. Melissa references Gianna; this would be Gianna Jessen, another abortion survivor. I had the honor of hearing her speak once and her testimony is absolutely incredible. Also, the movie “October Baby” is loosely based on her story and is about a girl who survived an abortion. Excellent movie that deals with this subject very well.
