.- This week, Archbishop Felipe Aguirre Franco of Acapulco advised that no attention should be paid to the capricious wishes of minority groups who seek the legalization of abortion through changes in legislation. Instead, he said, it is always necessary to respect life.

In recent statements, the archbishop explained, “We are determined to pull Mexico from the terrible crises she is facing, with the violence of organized crime as the most urgent. Legislative bodies ought to be discussing these problems to provide solutions and unite society.”

“They ought not to be aggravating the current situation, which is what they are doing by discussing issues,” such as abortion.

After reiterating that the Church always defends life against every type of threat, Archbishop Aguirre remarked that “the issue of abortion is not a religious one; it is an issue that impacts all.”

Commenting on attempts by pro-abortion feminists to legalize abortion in the state of Guerrero, the archbishop underscored that the existing constitutional rights must be respected. “There is no need to insist on creating laws that distort. It is inappropriate to revive this issue when what is needed is respect for life.”
