Episode 4: Fighting for Life with Abortion Survivor Melissa Ohden

Season 1, Ep. 4

Some politicians seem to think the only people impacted by abortion are the doctor and the woman who chooses to get one. The truth of the matter is that far more lives are affected by abortion.

In a new episode of The Van Maren Show, podcast host Jonathon Van Maren speaks with Melissa Ohden, a survivor of a saline abortion in 1977 that lasted over five days.

Melissa’s moving story begins when her maternal grandmother, a nurse, forced her then-19-year-old biological mom, an unmarried college student, to get a secret abortion.
