OWENSBORO, Kentucky, November 10, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – Marilee Morris wanted to be popular in school. In an attempt to be the life of the party, she got into drugs and promiscuous living. But the teenager eventually found herself pregnant, scared, and alone. She did what many girls in her situation are encouraged to do: she had an abortion.
“I chose to save myself instead of my child,” she said in a recently released video produced by Lolek Productions on behalf of Right to Life of Owensboro, Kentucky.
But the abortion only made Marilee's life spiral further out of control.
“I didn't realize that I was running from anything, and that is why I was still caught up in the drugs. It was just my way of shoving it way down deep so that I didn't have to think about it, didn't have to deal with it,” she said
It was then, in the darkest place she had ever been in her life, that Marilee unexpectedly experienced the hand of God reach down and pull her out of the blackness and despair.
Marilee's moving story is a testimony to the power of God that rescues those from the valley of death. It is a story about the renewal that is possible after losing one's child to abortion. It is a story about the hope that comes from rediscovering the value of each and every human life.
When the video was first shown at the Oct. 22 Right to Life of Owensboro's annual banquet, the entire room rose in a standing ovation for Marilee, who was present at the event.
So sit back and enjoy a moving testimony from a woman who learned the hard way that all life is sacred.
