A survivor of the 9/11 terrorist attack is now facing court action for her work to save the lives of unborn babies.
In 2001, Angela Braxton had just started a new job on the 80th floor of the 110-floor first tower of the World Trade Center. After the first plane piloted by al-Qaeda terrorists plowed into the building, she and others struggled to make their way to the bottom floor. Thomas More Law Center attorney Jay Combs picks up the story there, explaining that firefighters told the group of survivors to go to the second tower.
"She was in the shopping mall under the second tower when that collapsed," Combs says. "As she described it, it was like a hurricane; a horrific wind that swept her up like a tornado and picked her up, and she woke up however long later and it was pitch-black. She absolutely could not even see her hand in front of her face."
Braxton prayed for her life, and God answered – but it was a few years later when she made a total commitment to God. She has since been a pro-life counselor at an abortion clinic, and is now one of 14 counselors being sued by pro-abortion New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman for "harassing" women entering the clinic for abortions.
"Not a single person, not one woman, has reported being harassed by Angela or being in any way harmed by Angela," Combs shares. "And the reason is because Angela doesn't do that."
According to the attorney, Braxton has been successful in saving babies, largely because of her quiet demeanor and convincing conversations with women. Thomas More Law Center is asking the court to dismiss the lawsuit. Another pro-life counselor named in the action is a nun.
