Mother of baby with down syndrome is asked why she didn’t abort

Tia Marsili has two daughters with down syndrome. With one of them, she learned of the diagnosis in the womb, and chose not to abort. She says:

“My sister looked at me and said, ‘Why didn’t you abort her?’

I said, ‘What? Because we love her, and she’s my baby, and we love her!’ ‘But you knew,’ my sister said. . . . It was pretty shocking. Even people that close to me.”
