Late-Term Elective Abortion Survivor Melissa Ohden Explains the Reality of Prop 5

"I am the survivor of a failed late-term, saline infusion abortion at 31 weeks of gestation (that’s nearly eight months along), and it makes me physically ill that Vermont could become an abortion tourism destination for such procedures should the abortion amendment known as Article 22 or Proposal 5 pass this November. Proposal 5/Article 22 would enshrine in the Vermont Constitution an unrestricted right to abortion throughout all nine months of pregnancy. If the voters of Vermont don’t vote this down, the Vermont Legislature would be constitutionally prohibited from passing any law that could restrict abortion, regulate abortion procedures or protect the unborn in any way at any point in their development." - Melissa Ohden, Late-Term Abortion Survivor.
