Melissa Ohden – Abortion Survivor

A woman speaks on her failed abortion as a baby

Jessalynn Speight January 17, 2014

Abortion is often an expectant mom’s first idea when they are faced with an unplanned pregnancy.

The reason is not always they want to just get rid of it, but rather they aren’t sure how to get through this unplanned event in their life. They are trying to decide what to do and how to do it.

This video gives an insight into the other side of abortion that we rarely, if ever, get to hear.

This woman was meant to die. She had all the odds against her. Instead she made it, she was placed in a beautiful family, and spreads the message to everyone around her. A true powerhouse of a video.

Even if you are pro choice, it is still a thought provoking video that will make you wonder about all the babies that could have been, and what they would have become.
