Janay Rice and her mother appeared on NBC's Today Show to defend her decision to remain with the man who abused her.

We were all shocked when we saw the video of her being beaten and dragged out of the elevator.  Now, Janay Rice is saying that she was "chosen" by God to be abused by Ray Rice so that she could bring awareness to domestic abuse.

She makes those comments around the 5:00 mark.
