Press Release

Written in Secret, a Life Known by God – February 25th, 2020
Abortion Survivor Melissa Ohden comes to Bakersfield.
Bakersfield, CA January 6, 2020: The Bakersfield Pregnancy Center is honored to present Melissa Ohden, a Master's level prepared Social Worker and the author of "You Carried Me: A Daughter's Memoir". She is the Founder and Director of The Abortion Survivors Network. Melissa is a frequent contributor to pro-life news outlets and a regular guest on radio and television programs around the world. Melissa will be the keynote speaker for the Bakersfield Pregnancy Center Fundraiser Banquet. This premier event will be held on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 at Olive Knolls Christian Church. Reservations must be made in advance by contacting the Bakersfield Pregnancy Center at 661-326-1907.
The audience will be riveted by Melissa's powerful testimony and life's work to protect the most vulnerable in our society. Melissa has recently testified before the House of Representatives, petitioning for a vote on the "Abortion Survivor's Protection Act", authored by House Representative Ben Sasse, NE, and supported by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, which would establish requirements for the degree of care a health care practitioner must exercise in the event a child is born alive following an abortion or attempted abortion. A health care practitioner who is present must (1) exercise the same degree of care as reasonably provided to another child born alive at the same gestational age, and (2) immediately admit the child to a hospital.
The Bakersfield Pregnancy Center serves Kern County residents, seeking to provide individuals with pregnancy information, material support and sexual health education. Proceeds from the banquet will help fund
