Marked for Death' - An Abortion Survivor's Story

Melissa in 1977 and Melissa today

MEDIA ADVISORY, Aug. 31 /Christian Newswire/ -- In August of 1977, Melissa Ohden was 'marked for death,' but miraculously she survived. 

Facing Life Head-On, the weekly pro-life television program of Life Issues Institute, and recent Emmy award winner for "best of the best" in the category of Interview and Discussion, features saline infusion abortion attempt survivor, Melissa Ohden on its award winning show the week of August 29th and September 6th. 

In this two part series, host Brad Mattes takes the Facing Life Head-On audience on the journey of Melissa's remarkable survival, how her tragic beginning quickly turned into a story of love through adoption, her search for the truth and for her biological family, and how being a survivor has impacted her now as a parent, herself. 

Interviews with Melissa's adoptive mother and with a doctor regarding late term abortion attempts and the impact of these abortions on babies like Melissa give depth to a story, and a life, that is often unheard of: the story and life of the unborn.
