What an incredible story of the evil cruelties of abortion and the redemptive power of our Lord Jesus. This young lady had every right to be bitter and angry after surviving attempted murder on her life and Satan almost succeeded in destroying her anyway; however, read what she said: “I didn’t stay angry for long because, truly, there’s just not anything for me to be angry about. I’m alive, I’m well, and I’m blessed.”
