If there’s any question about whether an unborn child is a human being worthy of legal protection, abortion survivors erase any doubt. When a baby survives an abortion, the survival is further proof of the humanity of the unborn child who is the subject of the “medical procedure” done specifically to terminate their life.

In Ireland to support pro-life efforts to keep the nation protecting babies before birth, Ohden shared more about that experience of meeting her mother, saying the healing and reconciliation was “better than anything I ever expected:”

Her mother hid the pregnancy for many months. However Melissa says that when her family found out her mother was pregnant, “an abortion was forced upon her”.

It is not entirely clear how far the pregnancy had progressed when the procedure was carried out.
