Interview: My Mom's Abortion Failed, so I'm Alive to Talk about it

Interview: My Mom's Abortion Failed, so I'm Alive to Talk about it

While she says the response to her story has generally been "very positive," Ohden points out that "there are certainly still many people who 'can't believe' that children survive abortion attempts, and try to discredit us or deny our reality."

In 2002, then-U.S. President George W. Bush signed into law the Born Alive Infants Protection Act. The President noted that the legislation was intended to ensure "that every infant born alive - including an infant who survives an abortion procedure - is considered a person under federal law." No similar law exists in Canada.

“What a sad statement about how our world currently operates," Ohden commented.

"If we were talking about anything else other than abortion, and the research told us that children were being harmed at high rates by something, you know that legislators and medical associations would step in to protect these children.

"Where are they now?" she asked.

"In my opinion, people deny the existence of aborted children, like those in the article who lived, because the reality of abortion is truly too much for them to bear, and because, if they let themselves admit that we live, then they will have to admit that abortion is wrong. So, they avoid that 'slippery slope' by ignoring the facts about abortion and holding onto their safely held assumptions."

So many others.... Just as Children of Divorce are speaking out and saying it is NOT GOOD, so are Abortion Survivors. When will we hear them?

God bless!
