"I survived an abortion" Melissa Ohden


The beauty of this video is that it is done with good taste and with a very gentle, calm approach. It leaves the viewer with a serene sense of that awesome virtue of Hope - that a life can endure an abortion. But also there's the implicit question that if Melissa had not survived...the human race would be impoverished for her loss.

Melissa has clearly forgiven her biological parents, but admits to having felt a lot of personal guilt. I take it that this is 'survivor's guilt' where the abortion-survivor asks; 'why did I survive, when thousands each day are falling dead to the same 'procedure' that nearly killed me?' We can give thanksgiving that her life was saved, and that she is a great asset to the pro-life cause. We may offer her mission in our Rosary intentions.
