Marilee Morris lost sight of herself in high school. She dropped out of band and sports and began partying and doing drugs. Popularity was all that mattered to her at the time, she said.
“I did not know who I was anymore. I was just a shell of myself,” Morris said in a video by Lolek Productions.
Her life kept spiraling out of control through high school. When the teen found herself pregnant to her boyfriend, she decided to have an abortion.
“I chose to save myself instead of my child,” Morris said.
The thought still clings to Morris today, now a mother of two. She said it was her husband who finally pulled her away from the drugs and the parties.
“I think God sent him to save me from myself,” she said.

When their oldest son was born, Morris said she realized how much she needed healing from her abortion. She found help and later became a pro-life advocate herself.
Morris shared her story on video for the Right to Life of Owensboro banquet on Oct. 22. Her moving testimony of abortion and redemption received a standing ovation, according to the Lolek Productions website.
“So I guess it’s just my goal now to reach as many women as I possibly can, telling the story … so that each woman that we reach who is touched by this – two lives will be saved,” Morris said.
