An essay by Susan Berry about the three thousand people in the United States who have survived abortion:
Not much has been known or mentioned, even within the pro-life community, about abortion survivors--individuals who survived “botched” abortions. According to one abortion survivor, however, the Gosnell trial details have caused the “floodgates” to open for those who were meant to be dead.
According to Melissa Ohden, founder of the Abortion Survivor Network and survivor of a “failed” saline abortion in 1977, medical research, the increased power of ultrasound, and the painful experiences of women and men who have gone through abortion have all “made it very difficult for abortion advocates to deny the humanity of the unborn.”
In her work for National Right to Life, Ohden discusses how the lives of abortion survivors are a “living testament to the humanity of the unborn.”...
Ohden says that many abortion survivors “live their lives in fear of what the culture of death we live in says about what happened to us (it was simply a choice, we didn’t have any rights, we were not yet human).” She adds that survivors of abortion also believe that they are alone, with no one to turn to for understanding. The reality that one is alive merely because of a “failure” of a procedure that was meant to take one’s life can be a daunting notion.
A "botched" abortion is when no one dies.
Can you imagine knowing that you're alive merely because the hack your mother hired to kill you didn't do the job right?
May God forgive us.
