Every human being is more than a CHOICE.
behind the word “choice” is a person
You are more than a choice. So are we.
We’re someone’s son or daughter, grandchild, sibling, niece or nephew, cousin, friend, co-worker, neighbor. Many of us are someone’s spouse, someone’s parent.
We’re abortion survivors.
Our lives dispel the lies that abortion is a choice or a right. We humanize the unborn and fellow survivors. We have a name, a face, and we’re so grateful to have found our voices to be a voice. See some of our names and faces below.
We provide help, hope and a voice to abortion survivors and all who are silenced and impacted by abortion so that we may build a culture where every human being is seen as more than a choice.
Meet These Abortion Survivors
Claire Culwell’s biological mom became pregnant with her at the age of 13. Her mother took her to an abortion clinic where she had a surgical abortion. A few weeks later, she realized she was still pregnant.
Two months into her pregnancy, Josiah’s mother decided to go in and have an abortion. A few months went by and she realized that there was a baby still growing in her.
Melissa Ohden’s biological mother was a 19-year- old college student when she had a saline infusion abortion in 1977 that was meant to end Melissa’s life.

Raising our voices together
