Monica Dewey, 15, and Monica’s brother Jackson, 12, came from West Chester, N.Y., with a group from St. Anne’s Church — 118 people all clad in neon orange hats and green scarves to keep sight of each other in the giant crowd. Both girls spoke of how their families faced abortion decisions.
Monica, one of 10 children recalled, “My younger brother was very sick in the womb and the doctors told my mom to abort the baby but she chose not to. He is here today and he is perfectly healthy.”
Jackson chimed in, “It’s pretty cool that my mom didn’t give up. It’s cool that I am alive.”
