Keynote: Melissa Ohden
Life empowers women, not abortion, and Melissa is one of likely tens of thousands of abortion survivors who exemplify this. Melissa is the survivor of a failed saline infusion abortion, but like every survivor, she is so much more than a survivor.
Melissa is a Master’s level prepared Social Worker and the author of You Carried Me: A Daughter’s Memoir. Her second book, which will focus on sharing the stories of other abortion survivors breaking their silence, will be published in 2022. She is the Founder and Director of The Abortion Survivors Network, the only healing and advocacy organization for abortion survivors world-wide and The Education and Policy Center, which impacts policy issues relation to abortion and abortion survivors. Melissa and her team have connected with 397 survivors as of July 2021. Melissa is a frequent contributor to pro-life and conservative news outlets and a regular guest on radio and television programs around the world including Fox News, Focus on the Family, Hannity, The Eric Metaxas Show, Huckabee, and more. Although Melissa’s heart is for providing help and hope to all affected by abortion, she also strives to humanize the unborn through activism. She has testified before Congressional committees numerous times, as well as lobbied, and even met President Trump in the Oval Office in 2019.
Fulfilling the purpose that she believes God set out for her when He saved her from the certain death of the abortion attempt, Melissa is truly a voice for the voiceless.
All proceeds benefit Vitae Foundation, a national non-profit organization that facilitates research about life issues and applies the findings to create messaging strategies to share with others so that together, we can build a future where abortion is unthinkable.
