BORN-ALIVE ABORTION SURVIVORS SPEAK OUT!

God we thank You for these precious lives who survived abortion attempts. We pray that the horror of abortion will end. Give the survivors boldness to speak and enable their message to spread.

Gianna Jessen

Gianna Jessen had been in her mother’s womb for 7 months when her mother went to a Planned Parenthood, where she was told to have a late-term saline abortion. A saline abortion, also known as an instillation abortion, takes place as follows:

A saline solution (which includes substances such as saline, digoxin, potassium chloride, and prostaglandin) is injected into the mother’s uterus and into the baby. The saline solution poisons the baby, burning him or her inside and out, and burning off the outer layer of his or her skin. The baby suffers in these conditions for over an hour until he or she dies, and the mother must deliver her dead child after about one day.

Gianna Jessen survived her mother’s late-term, saline abortion.

She remained in the saline solution and was delivered alive in the abortion clinic. Thankfully, the abortionist at the clinic was not yet present, and Jessen was sent to the hospital.

Jessen was diagnosed with cerebral palsy due to the lack of oxygen during the abortion procedure. But, by age four, Jessen was walking with the assistance of a walker, leg braces, and her foster mother. Today, Jessen walks with only a small limp. She acts as a voice for the voiceless and hope for the hopeless through her pro-life activism.

“Death did not prevail over me… and I am so thankful!” Gianna Jessen proclaims.

Melissa Ohden

Melissa Ohden’s mother was a 19-year-old college student when she found out she was pregnant. Under the impression she was less than five months pregnant, Ohden’s biological mother had a saline abortion. Ohden survived the abortion, and was found to be approximately seven months gestation.

Ohden was adopted, and grew up in a happy, loving family. At just 14 years of age, she would find out something that would forever change her: she survived an abortion procedure. This prompted Ohden to search for her biological parents, whom she has contacted and forgiven for attempting to abort her.

Today, Ohden is a well-known pro-life activist and the founder of the Abortion Survivors Network, which seeks to educate the public about failed abortions and survivors while providing emotional, mental, and spiritual support to abortion survivors. Today, ASN has reached over 210 abortion survivors.

“Something’s wrong when women’s empowerment is based on ending another human being’s life,” Melissa Ohden states.

Read Melissa Ohden’s story in her new book: You Carried Me.

Josiah Presley

A woman in South Korea was two months pregnant with Josiah Presley, when she decided to have an abortion. A short time after the procedure, she realized that she was still pregnant: the abortion was unsuccessful. At that time, she decided that she would choose life for her baby and give him up for adoption.

Josiah Presley was born with a maimed left arm as a result of the abortion his birth-mother had. He was adopted by a loving family in the United States. He later found out that his birth-mother attempted to abort him, sparking some hatred in his heart for her. He was later able to grow in a relationship with the Lord, enabling him to forgive his birth mother for all that she did.

“What makes [preborn children] different from us besides the fact that they are innocent and can’t defend themselves against these huge abortion bullies killing them,” Josiah asks.

Nik Hoot

In 1996 in Siberia, Russia, Nik Hoot’s mother chose abortion when she was 24 weeks pregnant, and Hoot was born missing parts of both legs and not having fully developed fingers. His parents, Marvin and Apryl Woodburn, came to adopt him after being told by a priest that they “have to respect all forms of life, even those with disabilities.”

At just two years old, Hoot was given his first pair of prosthetic legs. After just a couple of weeks, he was walking around on his own. He developed a love for sports and played football, baseball, basketball, and today, is a wrestling star. He persevered through his disability.

Hoot ended his previous wrestling season with 24 wins – even without all of his limbs. Hoot serves as an inspiration to many of us; if he can accomplish so much, while missing limbs, there is no limit to what anyone can do, despite the obstacles they may face.

“There are some things I can’t do, but I’ll still try, I’ll learn how to do it,” Nik Hoot says….

We will never forget the 60 million children who have been lost to abortion and the 44 Senators who voted to allow children born after abortions to die.

  1. ABORTION IS A FALSE PAGAN RELIGION SACRIFICING HUMANS.
    QUESTION: WHY HAS GOD TO ALLOW IT IN OUR SO CHRISTIAN AMERICA?

    ANSWER: SOMEHOW WE INVITED THESE SPIRITS. LET´S FIND OUT WHEN AND HOW WE DID IT. LET´S REVIEW AND REVISE RETROACTIVELY OUR HISTORY.

    MARGRET SANGER WAS A FALSE PROHETESS TEACHING US TO ADOPT GENOCIDE AS A NEW LIFE STYLE.

    DID IT START WITH ELVIS THE PELVIS SELLING FORNICATION (AND SUBSEQUENT ABORTION) AS FREEDOM FOR YOUNGSTERS?

    DID IT START WITH HIPPIE MOVEMENT, JOHN LENNON SINGING HARE HARE KRISHNA, MY SWEET LORD? HINDUIST BLACK KALI IS WORSHIPPED IN BLOODY CULTS. SHE CARRIES A BABY ON HER TUNGUE!!! AND A NECKLESS OF CHOPPED OFF MALE HEADS.

    LET´S JUST NOT ONLY THINK ABOUT IT BUT EVEN MORE PRAY ABOUT IT. OUR LORD DEMANDS LIVING SACRIFICES NOT DEAD ONES. THANK GOD!

  2. i was born in 1939 when abortions were not openly performed as now. Yet, my Mom was in such despair while pregnant with me, her 14th child at age 44, she took poison to abort me. NOTHING HAPPENED! God preserved me because He knew me from ‘before the foundation of the world’ and had plans for me! Among Sicilians there were those who would abort babies. I thank God for preserving me to serve as a teaching and preaching elder in a reformed church I am 79 years old and thank our Lord for preserving me and for preserving others here!

  3. So thankful that life still prevails. Praise God for these voices that speak out for life. I pray for boldness and courage for many others who have similar life stories to tell.
