Abortion survivor talks about devastation and healing
Melissa Ohden, whose mother tried to have her aborted when she was six months old, is now herself a mother of a healthy 19-month old. Ohden has subsequently made it her life mission to speak out against abortion, saying "it's my calling, this is who I am; I wouldn't change a thing."

Ohden, who was adopted at birth, did not discover that she was the survivor of a failed saline injection abortion until she was in junior high. Though she was grateful to have been given the chance to live, she struggled with feeling "ashamed, guilty and embarrassed" for being "so unwanted."

After many years of taking the necessary time to heal, Ohden searched for and found her birth records and other information regarding her biological family. In 2007, Ohden shared her story with the public and decided to become an advocate for the unborn by campaigning against abortion.

Recently, Ohden's life came full circle when she gave birth to her first child, Olivia, at the same hospital where her own life was supposed to end.
