Pro-life advocate Melissa Ohden never thought her life would have such a strong purpose or a silver lining. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Melissa, the founder of Abortion Survivors Network, recounts that she was miraculously born alive after an attempted late-term saline abortion failed to kill her. After her birth, Melissa was fortunately adopted by loving parents. As she grew older, she began a journey to reunite with her birth parents and offer forgiveness. Because of Melissa’s testimony, she is able to minister forgiveness and healing to others who have survived their own attempted abortions.
