Saline Infusion Abortion Survivor Speaks
April 7, 2010
SIOUX CITY, Iowa, (christiansunite.com) -- "On August 24th, saline infusion for an abortion was done but was unsuccessful. On August 27th, Pitocin drip was started. It was also repeated on August 28th. Pitocin drip was continued on the 29th. The baby was delivered spontaneously in bed by a nurse."
So began the life of Melissa Ohden, who survived the onslaught of the aforementioned saline infusion abortion, over the course of a five-day period, in August of 1977. What Melissa thought for years was her "birthday," is, in fact, her day of survival, her day of triumph over the certain fate of death by abortion.
Melissa was blessed with the gift of life and the healing power of God's grace, of forgiveness and love, and she now passes this on to others through her role as a mother and as a Christian counselor and Pro-Life speaker and advocate. Melissa will be sharing her testimony at right to life and college events, a Christian women's conference, and a pregnancy resource center fundraiser in Iowa, Wisconsin, Indiana, Tennessee and Missouri in upcoming weeks, and will also be speaking at the Canadian March for Life in May.
Melissa is available for radio, television, and newspaper interviews in these areas in which she will be speaking. Melissa is excited to announce that her daughter, Olivia, will also be traveling with her to the events in Iowa, Indiana, and Tennessee to help share the message about the true reality of abortion.
