May 5, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) — Abortion survivor and public speaker Claire Culwell joins The Van Maren Show this week to recount her amazing story, and to talk about her new autobiographical book Survivor: An Abortion Survivor’s Surprising Story of Choosing Forgiveness and Finding Redemption. She tells Jonathon Van Maren how she miraculously survived a very common late-term abortion procedure of dismembering the baby limb by limb.

Culwell says she learned to find redemption and hope in forgiving her birth mother after meeting her in 2009. When she saw her face-to-face, the experience opened her eyes to the pain her biological mother went through. This led her “to fight for her and for women like her.”

While Culwell survived the abortion attempt, her twin sister did not. She says that she wonders every day what the world is missing “because my twin isn’t here, and that is such an impactful part of my story.” Culwell also higlights that even though abortion survivors are just as human as anyone else, “they are rejected by society.”
