Melissa Ohden Survived a Failed Abortion That Was Designed to Scald Her to Death

Melissa Ohden is the survivor of a failed abortion. Her mother had an abortion during her pregnancy with Melissa in the summer of 1977 in Sioux City, Iowa.

And Melissa survived it.

This is Melissa Ohden’s story.

When Melissa was 14, she found out for the first time the truth about the abortion.

When I first found out, I was devastated. And I struggled with anger for the first time.

Her mother was an unwed college student who was pressured to abort her baby. She was almost 8 months pregnant when she went into the hospital to terminate her pregnancy. Medical staff administered a saline solution for an abortion that’s designed to fill the amniotic sack and scald the child to death from the outside in.

I soaked in that toxic salt solution for five days.

Five days later, the mother returned to the hospital to deliver what she assumed would be a stillborn baby.

But that didn’t happen.

Believing that the abortion procedure had worked, the medical professionals discarded Melissa’s body.

And ever so quietly, baby Melissa began to try. Whimper, really.
