When Melissa Ohden’s mother was nineteen-years-old and eight months pregnant with Melissa, she made a decision to have an abortion. As a teenage mother, she was not ready for the responsibility, so she went to the hospital to have a saline infusion for an abortion. This is a type of abortion that injects toxic saline solution into the fluids surrounding a baby in the womb.
Melissa soaked in this toxic solution for the next 5 days. When her mother was induced into labor, everyone thought she was giving birth to a dead baby, but then a nurse heard a muffled cry. Melissa had miraculously survived the abortion, and the nurse determined that Melissa’s life was wroth saving.
