But Monday was "wear blue day" for pro-life supporters in Texas, so he purposefully donned blue jeans and a blue polo shirt. Even his eyes are blue, he noted with pride: "I was kinda hoping someone would notice that."

Castillo and his older brother, David, woke up at 3 a.m. that morning to drive to Austin with their family to support a pro-life bill under consideration in both the House and Senate. Sitting on the Capitol steps with blue-and-white signs that read, "Protect Women. Protect Life," the brothers explained they weren't there just because their parents dragged them along for the ride.

The 12-year-old wore an "Unborn Babies Feel Pain!" sticker and a silver "Precious Feet" lapel pin, made in the exact size and shape of an unborn baby's feet at 10 weeks after conception.
