Mexico: State Pro-Life Initiatives Advance

Legislators in the Mexican state of Guanajuato voted against a bill to legalize abortion in the state, declaring the bill inadmissible. The virtual session of congress was proceeded by virtual discussion forums with various interest groups on the issue, including pro-abortion and feminist groups, pro-life organizations, religious ministers, and political officials. Following the vote, feminist groups protested and vandalized notable buildings near the State Congress.  

 

In the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon, members of parliament passed an education bill to teach students "a respect for life from conception to natural death." The new law calls for education to reflect the state's constitution which states, "the state recognizes, protects and defends the right to life that every human being has. From the moment of conception that life comes under the protection of the Law and is considered as having been born with regards to all corresponding legal effects until its natural death." The legislation also calls for the inclusion of persons with disabilities. "We want to create a new generation of students that have values and respect, which unfortunately in Mexico, we have seen is being lost," explained bill sponsor Juan Carlos Leal.
