40,000 march against abortion in Guadalajara

.- More than 40,000 Mexicans took to the streets this week in Guadalajara to protest attempts by the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) to legalize abortion in the state of Jalisco, in the wake of the recent legalization of the practice in Mexico City.

Members of more than 50 public and private institutions took part in the march, which ended with the signing of a ten-point declaration in defense of human life and the family.  Fernando Guzman Perez Pelaez, a top official in the Jalisco state government, joined in the protest.

The declaration called for state and federal reforms that would recognize and protect human life, develop a comprehensive plan to foster human dignity and education for all, as well as to support those groups, political parties and institutions that support a culture of life.

A true mother would not harm her son

The archbishop of Guadalajara, Cardinal Juan Sandova Iniguez, in a message for Mother’s Day, warned that the legalization of abortion is a “huge mistake” that “in some way pushes mothers not to be mothers but rather killers of their own children.”
