I Chose Life Part III: Amanda’s Story
Amanda was in an abusive relationship back home in Arkansas. A domestic violence shelter told Amanda they would help her and her unborn child out by giving her a bus ticket to any shelter that would take her in. After calling nine states, Amanda finally found a shelter that would accept her in Texas—the Missionaries of Charity in Dallas.
That’s when she found her way to GEMS.
GEMS (Gabriel Education Ministry and Support) is a part of the Project Gabriel ministry. The Catholic Pro-Life Committee has nine ministries
that strive to protect the lives of the unborn and care for their family members. “I Chose Life” is a 5-part video series capturing the stories of five young women who had the courage to come out of difficult situations to bring their children into the world.
