Mommy, stop them from killing me!

By Dave Weinbaum

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | I'm so cozy in my cocoon. There's plenty to eat. I can feel my little toes and fingers. I'm growing everyday! There are noises I hear from somewhere outside of Mommy. I hear her talk too. I love her so much. I can't wait to see her.

As much as I like it in here, I'm curious what's on the outside. Will it be as comfy and love-filled as in here? I feel my mom's blood flow all around me and go to sleep by the rhythm of her beating heart. I feel so safe and secure inside my mommy. Are there others like me? Were they once in here too? Wow--brothers and sisters to play with! Wonder what dad's like. There's a whole world out there that I can't wait to experience.

Wait a second. What's that odd feeling? I'm sensing something burning me-- something I know instinctively is bad. It's beginning to scorch my skin. Where can I go? It hurts so much! What can I do? WHO'S PROTECTING ME? MOMMY! STOP THEM FROM KILLING ME!

Several hours later, I awaken. I'm freezing and choking for air. My body is scalded and I'm in immense pain. Plus, I'm blind. Am I dead or alive? What's happened? Have I been born? I know I'm not in my mommy anymore. I hear some voices. I can't cry. All I can do is try to breathe and move. Uh oh, somebody's coming. I hope its Mommy.

The story above is true. It was the beginning of life for one Melissa Ohden, abortion survivor. As the nurse was treating Missy's mom, she noticed the scorched-red baby, struggling to move, while making grunting sounds, straining every part of her little body to breathe. This was meant to be the end of her life--a painful, cruel ending.

In a failed attempt to kill her, per her mother's instructions and father's cooperation, saline solution was infused into Melissa's amniotic fluid by a "doctor." This treatment burns the baby right through to the vital organs. That's right. The intention was to burn Melissa until she was dead. Gratefully, it was a little short of fatal.

One has to wonder how many babies were born this way, aborted but still alive. How many were murdered to complete the intent of the mother, father and "doctor" and in some cases, the state--after live birth? How many were arrested and prosecuted?

I was shocked to be talking face to face to a person who was aborted—and survived. When I first met Missy, at the Rolla, MO. Pregnancy Resource dinner, I thought she was a woman who had an abortion. As the featured speaker, I figured she would talk of the sorrow, regret and guilt of those who have s uffered the loss of an aborted child in later life.

Melissa talked out against our culture of death. Immunized by Roe V Wade, legal abortion has accounted for over 40 million American babies killed since its inception. Somehow we've depersonalized ourselves by distancing our individuality from the fact that any one of us could have been in Missy's position when we were in our mother. Let's call it what it is. It's the murder of innocent life because mom and or dad don't want to be "punished" with a baby.

The main proponent of abortion is Planned Parenthood. A good portion of their funds come from taxpayers. About 1 in 135 babies are recommended for adoption.

Organizations like the Pregnancy Resource Center provide an alternative to death. They promote life for the baby and do whatever they can to help the mother and child thrive--emotionally, financially and spiritually.

Before Melissa spoke, a mom brought her year-old baby to the podium. She was white--the baby black. She was ready to abort her son and was in fact late for her abortion appointment when she came in to be counseled at the Center. She proudly brought her baby up to the podium and the 99.9% of the almost 500 white-Christian crowd, most of whom are tea partiers and listeners of my (a Jew's) talk radio show, gave this mom and her black son a rousing standing ovation. I'm getting the same goose bumps I had that night as I write this.

That baby could well have been President Barack Obama, the same man who said he didn't want either of his daughters "punished with a baby." Barack Obama ought to thank his mother every day for not aborting him. Inexplicably, Obama is a big fan of Planned Parenthood. Think maybe they're contributors?

One would think the first black president of the USA would realize the original intent of Margaret Sangor, the founder of Planned Parenthood was to rid the world of inferiors via abortions. Some of those she described as Negroes. That's why most Planned Parenthood facilities are located in black neighborhoods.

Lately reports have come in about a huge decline in blacks in places normally where they dominate. Detroit has just registered a 25% drop in black population and DC now has more whites and others than blacks. BTW, when Obama was an Illinois State Senator he had a chance to vote to save babies like Missy called the BORN ALIVE PROTECTION ACT.

Our brave, decisive President voted "PRESENT ." If Missy were born in Illinois under his cowardice she would have been aborted, born— and then murdered.

When YOUR mother had the option to abort you, did she make the right decision?

Melissa, predicted to die within days of her "birth," continued to confound the "doctors." Adopted without knowing her circumstances, she lived happily with an older sister, mom and dad until one day, at age 14, her older sister told her about her secret. Directed to her adoptive mom, Missy learned the whole truth. She felt unwanted, unloved and unworthy.

Melissa has learned to deal with her tragic beginning by living her life to the fullest. She has a Masters Degree in Social Work, is married and has a daughter, Olivia. Missy insisted Olivia be born in the same hospital where she survived her abortion.

Melissa believes, as do all Holocaust survivors, that when you kill a baby, you murder his/her future sons and daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. If you ask Missy why she gives talks against abortion all over the country, she'll tell you, "I'm on a mission from G-d!"

From your mouth to His Ears—G-d speed, Missy.
