Hundreds of thousands of pro
choice advocates descended on the
nation's capital with signs, T-shirts
and buttons Sunday, chanting their
support for the Freedom of Choice Act
and the politicians who support it. The
Freedom of Choice Act would legal
ize abortion nationwide, taking the
decision out of the hands of the state.

Ferraro spoke to marchers as

Police may charge
in teenager's death
By Jackie Hershkowltz
Officials will announce today
whether criminal charges will be filed
against University senior Abigail
Rierson for the death of Chapel Hill
High School student Terrence "TJ"

day. Eighteen-year-old Robinson died
Thursday night from injuries he received
when he was struck by a car driven by
Rierson. Robinson and a friend were
crossing North Greensboro Street at
7:08 p.m. Tuesday when they collided
with Rierson's 1986 Mazda.
. Robinson had been listed in critical
condition since Tuesday.
Robinson, who Chapel Hill High
School principal Marvin Koenig de
scribed as "extremely outgoing and well
known," had served as president of the
downtown teen center. He also had won
several awards, including the Parent
Teacher Student Association award for
most-improved student and the J.C.
Penny award for community work.
Emma Holloway, Robinson's
mother, said her son had been a talented
dancer who had hoped to pursue a ca
reer in the arts. He was the only male
dancer scheduled to perform in the high
school's upcoming production, she said.
"He had so much planned for the
future," Holloway said. "Anything he
wanted, he could have got. It seems like
all his dreams are just wasted.
"He touched so many people's lives,
his life had really just begun, and now
he's gone. I just feel like someone took
my heart and sliced it in a m i II ion pieces.
If God were to ask me to give up any
thing in the world, I would gladly do it,
just as long as I could have my son back.

something I've done, please punish me. '

"Students are grieving, coming to

Koenig said that this was a painful
time for Chapel Hill High School stu

death follows the recent deaths of four
students' parents, he said.
"Something we have to be alert for is
the possibility of students becoming
extremely depressed," he said. "We're
