The failed abortion survivor whose mum thought she was dead

 

When Melissa Ohden was 14 she learned a shocking secret - her mother had tried to abort her. She was saved by a nurse who heard her crying as she lay among medical waste at a US hospital. This is the story of her survival, and of the mother who thought she was dead.

I saw this story too. What an amazing thought provoking story, on many levels. Not only the physical implications of artificially terminating a life, but how, in the past people have sought to impose their will on others regardless of the desire of the individual concerned. In particular, many young girls who had abortions were vulnerable and faced unreasonable prejudices from society

I can't usually stomach anything about abortion but this had a "happy" ending so I got through it.  I was listening to a summary of the recent Irish yes vote for abortion and someone mentioned 24 weeks - when I figured that would be aborting a baby 6 months in the womb my head started hurting... I literally felt as if my skull was going to explode.  It is for this reason I avoid  even discussing this topic.  How will we explain millions, hundreds of millions of abortions to the generation born in the new system?
