Melissa Ohden survived an abortion. She was later adopted by loving parents and raised in a happy home. Many years later, however, when she learned about her difficult beginnings to life, she was sent spiraling into a dark place where she struggled with self-hatred and self-destructive behaviors. Later, she met her birth mother, was able to offer forgiveness, and was able to heal. She says, “I’ve learned that love really is what this life is all about. Love transformed my life when I survived, love allowed me to thrive, love for the unborn and their parents brought me forward to share my story with the world, and love brought my birth mother and me together. My life really is a love story.”
She recently answered some questions in an interview with National Right To Life News.
