    “In a world where everyone wears a mask, it’s a privilege to see a soul.” I stumbled across this quote weeks ago, and it both struck me at the time and has stuck with me about the incredible gifts that transparency and vulnerability are in our world today. They provide a window to the soul, a connection to people, that is often sorely missing in our technologically driven, fast-paced culture. Although I share my life story in the hopes to inspire others, to shape our culture in respecting and protecting life and healing from our various emotional and spiritual wounds,...

    A story almost beyond belief whose conclusion came about last May, four years after “Lil” aborted her child in the 35th week. In 2013, Lil was 18, the Daily Mail’s Sophie Williams tells us, when the young woman from inner Mongolia found out she was pregnant. She did not tell anyone until the 35th week when evidently she told her brother who then accompanied her to an unnamed abortion clinic where she “successfully” aborted. Or, so she thought. Incredibly three days later police told Lil that her baby had been saved by the maternity nurse! According to Williams Liang Xiaohua...
  • Abortion Survivor Reacts To Clinton’s Abortion Comments: ‘What A Contradiction!’

    04/07/2016 11:06:02 AM PDT · by Morgana · 7 replies ^ | April 6, 2016 | Peter Hasson
    Abortion survivor Melissa Ohden responded to Hillary Clinton’s recent comments on abortion, calling it a contradiction for Clinton to both acknowledge the personhood of an unborn child and deny that the unborn person has any constitutional rights. Ohden’s comments were in response to an interview Clinton gave on Sunday, where the former secretary of state claimed that “The unborn person doesn’t have constitutional rights.” For Melissa Ohden, the abortion debate is personal. In August 1977, she survived a saline abortion. Five days after the attempted abortion, she was delivered prematurely to a 19-year-old single mother. The saline solution used in...

    Lincoln Bain almost lost his chance at life, not once but twice when both his mother and grandmother faced the temptation to abort. Bain is an abortion survivor. In January, the Bahamas talk show host, gospel singer and minister shared his story on YouTube to teach his viewers about how every baby has a purpose in life. “This message is for someone,” Bain said in the YouTube video. “I am the product of a failed abortion, and I am still here. Listen! … God is going to make a way. God will make a way. What ever you are going...

    On August 28, 2012 the Susan B. Anthony List (SBA List) announced the launch of a $150,000 television ad campaign across Missouri highlighting President Obama's extreme record on abortion and featuring abortion survivor Melissa Ohden. Missouri has recently been at the center of the conversation on abortion. "In light of the recent national discussion over abortion, it's important Americans know the President's best-kept secret: his extreme record on abortion. Melissa Ohden's powerful story draws a stark contrast to his unbending support of abortion and the abortion industry and reveals the human face to this debate." said SBA List President Marjorie...

    Melissa Ohden September 15, 2011 ( - How could my biological mother have ever fathomed that as she attempted to abort me in 1977 that she was not only ending the life of her child, but she was wiping out every future generation to come from that one life - her grandchildren, her great-grandchildren, her great-great grandchildren? She may not have been able to fathom it, the thousands of women who end the lives of their children everyday through abortion may not be able to fathom it, but as an abortion survivor now pregnant with my second child, I can...

    Jack Kenny: Abortion survivor tells story of struggles,triumph and faith By JACK KENNY SOME KIDS don’t know when to quit. Gianna Jessen never learned how. By her own account she came into this world under extraordinary circumstances, having already suffered brain damage due to oxygen deprivation. She was diagnosed with cerebral palsy by doctors who would later be amazed that she could sit up, much less walk. At 25, she walks with a pronounced limp and admits to frequent and unexpected falls. She doesn’t mind telling audiences she has gotten rather good at it over the years. “After 25 years...

    Melissa Ohden's 19 month old daughter, Olivia, was not supposed to have a chance at life because of abortion. Not because Melissa ever considered aborting her, but because Melissa, herself, was aborted at approximately 24 weeks of gestation and survived. Abortion attempt survivors, in and of themselves, are rare in our society. Having an abortion attempt survivor become a mother, herself, and speak out against the intergenerational impact of abortion, is certainly even more of a rarity. But by all appearances, Melissa is up for the challenge that faces her in her ministry. "It's my calling," states Melissa. "This...

    About 500 people Sunday heard a series of speakers, including one who survived an abortion procedure, say it is time anti-abortion Siouxlanders took firmer actions to change the societal tide of acceptance for abortion. Held to coincide with the January 1973 Roe V. Wade Supreme Court decision affirming a woman's right to seek an abortion, speakers at the Siouxland Pro-Life Interfaith Prayer Service at Central Baptist Church said more than 50 million people have been lost through the choice of abortion. A series of people, from age 36 on down to a 1-year-old carried by a woman, moved to the...

    Jodie Percival, 25, of Nottinghamshire, England, and her fiancée decided on an abortion when a test eight weeks into her pregnancy revealed the baby would have inherited a serious kidney ailment, multicystic dysplastic kidneys.

Another test confirmed the kidney problems, but doctors said the baby was likely to survive, so the couple chose to give it a chance. Finley, was born three weeks premature and has minor kidney damage, but is expected to be fine.“Abortion...

    England is abuzz about "The Boy Who Lived," and no, his name isn't Harry Potter, but he did survive a deliberate attempt on his life. Two, in fact, while still in his mother's womb. The boy, Gabriel Jones, was the weaker twin and had an enlarged heart. Doctors told his mother that they believed he would die in the womb, and if he did, they said, that would cause his brother to die, too. The despondent mother, Rebecca Jones, agreed to terminate Gabriel to save his twin brother, Ieuan. First doctors attempted to sever his umbilical cord, but according to...

The object of this discussion is to reflect on the possible reasons for the remarkable popularity of Harry Potter. Can the current craze be only due to good marketing skills? Does this book have exceptional literary value? Could the book be an indicator of a deeper cultural trend?  We wish to hypothesize...

He's signing the bill that you testified in favor of a couple of years ago."Reality set in as Jessen arrived in Pittsburgh and was led into...
