Abortion survivors, in wake of Supreme Court ruling, reveal their 'trauma' but rejoice in a 'new dawn'

Melissa Ohden, Priscilla Hurley and Micaella Clay spoke on Saturday morning about what they went through — and how they feel today.

“I survived a failed saline infusion abortion attempt back in 1977,” said Ohden.

“After being poisoned and scalded in the womb over a five-day period, I was accidentally born alive in the final step of that abortion procedure,” she revealed.

As Ohden, an Iowa native, says on her own website about her circumstances, “I don’t believe God originally wrote abortion into my life, as God is the creator of life, but when it was introduced by man, or in my case, a woman, He rewrote the story of my life around it, to create the story of a life that is more intricate, more redemptive [and] more grace-filled than anything anyone else could have planned or written.”

It wasn’t until her teens that she learned the truth of how she was born.

Ohden is founder of the Abortion Survivors Network.

“God is the creator of life, but when it was introduced by man, or in my case, a woman, He rewrote the story of my life around it.”
