When the panel meets, the will hear from abortion survivors Melissa Ohden and Gianna Jessen.

Ohden is a LifeNews.com writer and a nationally-recognized speaker. Ohden’s mother had an abortion to end her eight month-old child’s life, but Melissa miraculously lived.

Her mother was in college and 19-years-old with no father to support her when she decided to terminate her unborn child with a saline abortion. This type of abortion involves injecting a toxic saline solution into the amniotic fluids surrounding the pre-born baby in the womb, scalding it to death from the outside in.

Melissa soaked in the solution of chemicals for five days until labor was induced and she was thought to be dead. A nurse happened to hear her muffled cry, and luckily Melissa’s biological parents chose to give her up for adoption instead.
