Melissa 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.
