    Teens Who Survived An Attempted Abortion

    1. Attempted abortion survivors. These are people who survived an actual abortion attempt. In other words, the abortion failed to kill them.

    2. Twin abortion survivors. These are people whose twin was aborted but they themselves survived.

    3. Sibling abortion survivors. These are people born into families where a brother or sister was aborted.

    Put yourself in their places. What is it like to know that your own parent attempted to kill you before you were born? Or, why was your brother or sister aborted and you were not? These are the terrible issues which abortion survivors have faced and dealt with. There are many abortion survivors. Here is a sampling of their stories:

    Gianna Jessen
    [​IMG]
    My name is Gianna Jessen... I was aborted, and I did not die. My biological mother was 7 months pregnant when she went to Planned Parenthood in southern California, and they advised her to have a late-term saline abortion.


    A saline abortion is a solution of salt saline that is injected into the mother's womb. The baby then gulps the solution. It burns the baby inside and out, and then the mother is to deliver a dead baby within 24 hours.


    This happened to me! I remained in the solution for approximately 18 hours and was delivered ALIVE... in a California abortion clinic. There were young women in the room who had already been given their injections and were waiting to deliver dead babies. When they saw me the abortionist was not yet on duty and had me transferred to the hospital.

    I was aborted and I did not die!
    I should be blind, burned... I should be dead! And yet, I live! Due to a lack of oxygen supply during the abortion I live with cerebral palsy.

    When I was diagnosed with this, all I could do was lie there. They said that was all I would ever do! Through prayer and hard work by my foster mother, I was walking at age 3 ½ with the help of a walker and leg braces. At that time I was also adopted into a wonderful family. Today I am left only with a slight limp. I no longer have need of a walker or leg braces.


    ...Death did not prevail over me... and I am so thankful!

    My mother's choice was my death sentence. My mother, Betty, had an abortion... A few weeks after that she was sitting at home reading when the book on her stomach began to bounce up and down. That's when she knew she was still pregnant... with ME!


    "I'm so sorry, Betty," the doctor told her when she went back to him, "You were carrying twins."


    Although a second abortion was suggested, my mother refused and instead brought me to term. I was born with bilateral congenital dislocated hips, a condition for which I've had dozens of operations. It hasn't stopped me from pursuing my medical studies, though, or from speaking out whenever I can for the right to life.


    I have forgiven my parents for trying to abort me, and I forgive the abortionist who killed my twin brother and who almost killed me. I often think of my brother, Andrew James, whom nobody can replace.




    "My Mother's Choice Was My Death Sentence".
    I believe that the way of truth, love, and God's grace is the only way to deal with the abortion tragedy. I would like to call all people to stand with me to defend the right to life of all persons. There are many alternatives to abortion. Nobody needs to sacrifice her child, no matter what anyone says.



    Babies Who Survived Abortions and are Now Adults: Time for Our Voice to be Heard

    by Terri LaPoint
    Health Impact News


    Abortion is not meant to be survived, yet somehow, there are people alive today who lived through their mothers’ abortions. Today, they want their voices to be heard as they share their unique perspective on the videos that have recently been released by the Center for Medical Progress exposing Planned Parenthood.

    Survivor Melissa Ohden, founder of the Abortion Survivors Network, reports that she has been in contact with 202 survivors and/or immediate family members of survivors. Out of 57.5 million in America who have been aborted since Roe v Wade opened the floodgates in 1973, and others who were aborted before it became legally accepted, there are just a tiny handful of babies who have lived through the abortion procedure.

    Gianna Jessen is one of those survivors:

    i think someone who was burned in her mother’s womb for 18 hours ( me ) deserves to be heard, as we face the horror of planned parenthood.

    — Gianna Jessen (@giannajessen) July 21, 2015



    Gianna and Melissa Ohden both survived saline abortions, a procedure where a salt solution was injected into their mother’s wombs, where they were burned inside and out by the solution. Usually the mothers would give birth to a dead baby hours or days later. Gianna Jessen and Melissa Ohden were born alive. Most often, when that happens, the babies would be killed immediately or left in a bucket or on a table to die. However, in both of their cases, a compassionate worker had mercy on them and took them for medical care, instead of killing them or “procuring” their tissue or organs. They were later adopted, and today they speak out about their stories. They are perhaps the best known abortion survivors today.

    Survivors Feel The Pain Of The Babies Being Aborted
    There are other survivors whose mothers had an abortion, but somehow they remained pregnant. In some cases, the abortion caused disfigurement or loss of limbs; in others, the mother was pregnant with twins, but neither the abortionist nor the mother realized that another baby remained in the womb after the abortion. Some survivors have no visible repercussions, but all carry emotional scars. They can identify with the aborted babies in a way that few can.

    Carrie Fischer feels the pain of the babies whose broken bodies are shown in the videos. She remained in her mother’s womb after an abortion attempt in a Texas clinic, and she carries the scars in her body. (See her story: here)

    When I see the baby body parts, my heart breaks, because I realize that I could have been one of those babies, I feel the pain and horror each baby must have felt, because I experienced that same pain when my mother tried to abort me. I survived, but so many millions of others have lost their lives to the monstrous atrocities of abortion.

    It’s Not “Just a Simple Procedure”
    Melody Olson (website) is only recently beginning to speak out about her experience. She herself is a post-abortive mother, and she learned her own story when she found a recording in 2007 that her grandmother made shortly before her death in 1999. In that recording, her grandmother revealed that when her young parents found out her mom was pregnant, they went into Mexico for an abortion. Her mother was given a pill that was supposed to abort her. But, in the words of Melody’s grandmother, “Obviously it didn’t work, because here you are!”

    She tells Health Impact News that she is very thankful to be alive. Before she found out her own story and began investigating, like many people, she didn’t realize what actually happens to the babies in abortions.

    I had no idea this is what they did. I thought it was just a simple procedure.

    I can’t see how anybody, after seeing these videos, could walk into an abortion clinic and take the life of another human. I honestly can’t even imagine how anybody could do it. How much more do we need to see that this is not a “fetus”? It’s a BABY!

    The Nonchalant Attitudes In the Videos – Disturbing
    A common theme that most of the survivors we talked with addressed is the coldness with which Planned Parenthood staff and others spoke with when talking about buying and selling the organs of aborted babies. Gianna Jesson tweeted:

    watching the video of that abortionist from planned parenthood arrogantly talk about selling baby parts, while eating a salad. is shocking.

    Melody Olson talks about the “part that floors” her when watching the videos:

    The disgusting part of this disassembling of bodies – that’s hard enough. But, what’s worse is the nonchalant attitude of these people, that it’s just business-as-usual. It’s like washing their cars … or like how to cut up a chicken. The deadness in their souls.

    Josiah Presley – “The Human Fetus Is A Person”
    Josiah Presley is a young man who was adopted, after he was born missing an arm from his mother’s curettage (D & C) abortion. He suspects that he may have had a twin who was successfully aborted. He spoke at the National Convention for Life in Ireland in 2014 and shared his incredible story. (See: YouTube video) Josiah sent this statement to Health Impact News:

    When I first saw the Planned Parenthood (PP) videos, I was definitely appalled, but in no way surprised. In a time where the killing of innocent and defenseless human life is thought of as no big deal, why not find a way to profit from it even more?

    What surprises me, however, is the fact that PP is trying to either cover it up, or apologize for the laxity in which the videos showed the employees talking so nonchalantly about the issue. After all, if the human fetus is nothing but a clump of tissues, then why shouldn’t they be harvested for the sake of research? We butcher animals all the time for food. Why should there be any shame in butchering and harvesting the organs of a clump of cells to potentially save human lives?

    The answer is simple, and the same one that prolife movement has been asserting for years. From the moment of conception, the human fetus is a person.

    The reason PP is having to try to cover up their actions and apologize for them is because the revealing of these videos does nothing but to reinforce the fact that abortion is the taking of human life.

    They can try to dance around the issue all they want. But at the end of the day, it is completely contradictory to say that a fetus is just a clump of tissue, but in the same breath harvest aborted fetuses for their human organs in the name of research. These videos have reinforced that the fetus is a person, and these videos have brought to the public’s eye once again the heinous face of abortion.

    My heart mourns for the lives of those lost because of abortion. It hurts knowing that, because of abortion, my own life was almost ended 19 years ago. But it hurts even more knowing that I live in a day and age where abortion is but a normal daily occurrence. A procedure that brings great profit to one party while destroying the life of the other.

    Appalled But Not Surprised
    In her statement to Health Impact News, survivor Melissa Ohden writes:

    In all honesty, although I am appalled by what we’ve seen in these PP videos, I am not surprised. The very act of abortion is an utter disregard for human life and so along with that comes all of these other circumstances like harvesting of organs, even possibly without consent or when children were born alive.

    Abortion Survivors ask: “Where was MY choice?”
    One question that abortion survivors universally ask about the “choice” of abortion is: “Where was MY choice?”

    They are appalled at the attempts to say that they were not actually human or that they did not deserve to live. They are the “inconvenient truth” that fly in the face of the abortion rhetoric. Gianna writes that she had the “audacity not to die while being aborted on 4.6.77.” Further, she poses questions to Planned Parenthood:

    i think dr. ( i eat a huge salad and drink wine while discussing the sale of baby parts) nucatola, and all the rest of these planned parenthood people, should try to tell me to my face that i am not human. i think they should have to answer my two questions for them: if abortion is about women’s rights, what were mine? and, do you wish i would have died?

    oh, and a third, do you resent that you couldn’t sell me piece by piece to help fund that Lamborghini?

    Would The Clinic Have Sold Their Body Parts?
    That question haunts many survivors. Had their mother’s abortion taken place in a different time or a different clinic, it could have been THEIR bodies being rinsed off in a strainer and their organs shipped off to the highest bidder. Claire Culwell was adopted after surviving the abortion that killed her twin brother. When she found her birth mother, she thanked her for choosing life. Her mother broke down in tears and told her the truth about what happened so long ago. Now their relationship has been restored.

    This beautiful woman is my birth mother. When she was 13 she had an abortion that took the life of my twin but somehow I miraculously survived. Lately I’ve wondered – were my brother’s body parts sold? Would mine have been sold if her abortion had been successful? We will never know….But there is one thing we DO know — this beautiful woman, who I have completely forgiven, deserved much better than abortion and much better than Planned Parenthood.

    Funny, I was only in a restaurant an hour ago and there were a bunch of pro-abortionists laughing and chatting over their meals talking about events they have planned for trying to introduce abortion into Ireland. They were also giving out about priests. I felt ill overhearing them and being near them as they spoke.

    This quote I cited from the article Josephite posted is just a sample of the many examples here of what makes me so angry. This poor girl who should have had a healthy normal life is now forced to live in disability because someone was selfish and evil!

    Thank you all for posting here. We need to keep this issue alive. Sometimes we can "forget" about it because it is an unseen evil. But in reality I think this is the worst evil of all time. Much, much worse than the Holocaust...and that was pure evil. There are mass SLAUGHTERHOUSES in our cities and towns. We drive by them every day. Miniature concentration camps where our children are systematically and coldly put to death! They are treated as garbage and then the body is "dumped" in the garbage or "used for parts".

    ONE BILLION BABIES MURDERED!!!

    Can you think of a more DESPICABLE crime?

    I would give you all "likes" but this issue makes me so ill I can't bring myself to put a "like" underneath it.

    By the way if anyone reading this has had an abortion know that I am not judging you. Yes it was wrong and horrible, but you were deceived into sin by the devil just as we have all been. Know that God loves you and will forgive your sin in a moment if you ask sincerely. In a very real way you are a victim too, though you probably didn't realize it until later. :cry::cry::cry:
