IMAG0945Melissa Ohden survived an abortion in 1977, and she was present at the Susan B. Anthony List’s Bus Tour stop in Des Moines, IA yesterday.  She has a powerful story.  One of the more powerful statements, in my opinion, during her speech was this:

It wouldn’t matter to me if I was standing here with scalded skin.  It wouldn’t matter to me if I was blind.  It wouldn’t matter to me if I was deaf because I would still be so thankful that I am alive.  And I have spent 20 years of my life to come to grips with what happened in my life, and heal from what happened.  But I will tell you there are some things that I can’t accept.  I can not accept that we live in a world that wants to talk about what happened to me as health care.  Scalding a child to death in the womb is not health care.

  1. I love your speeches Melissa!! Can’t wait until our paths meet up again. Thanks for fighting for the voiceless. You and I are just some of the few that we’re lucky enough to have the breathe of life. It’s easy for the pro choice people to say women have a choice, but their opinion counts because their mother chose life!
