Meet Our Virtual Keynote Speaker: Melissa Ohden

Melissa Ohden is the survivor of a failed saline infusion abortion in 1977. Despite the initial concerns regarding Melissa’s future after surviving the attempt to end her life at approximately seven gestation, she has not only survived but thrived.

She is the founder and director of The Abortion Survivors Network and is a Master’s level prepared Social Worker. She’s the author of “You Carried Me: A Daughter’s Memoir.”

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. Melissa and her husband, Ryan, live in Kansas City, Missouri, with their two daughters, Ava and Olivia.
