SIOUX CITY, Iowa, April 7 /Christian Newswire/ -- "On August 24th, saline infusion for an abortion was done but was unsuccessful. On August 27th, Pitocin drip was started. It was also repeated on August 28th. Pitocin drip was continued on the 29th. The baby was delivered spontaneously in bed by a nurse."
So began the life of Melissa Ohden, who survived the onslaught of the aforementioned saline infusion abortion, over the course of a five-day period, in August of 1977. What Melissa thought for years was her "birthday," is, in fact, her day of survival, her day of triumph over the certain fate of death by abortion.
By my best estimate, there are about 100,000 people in the US who survived prenatal attempts on their lives.
