Abortion has become 'plague' in Mexico City, acknowledges government

.- The government of Mexico City noted in a report this week that abortion has become a “plague” in the capital, as 7 out of every 10 women who inquire about the procedure end up choosing abortion.

The report, which was delivered to the Legislative Assembly’s Commission on Health, reveals that between April 2007, when abortion was legalized in Mexico City, and December 2009, there were 50,936 inquiries about abortion before the 12th week of pregnancy.  Sixty-eight percent of these women (34,660) opted to have the procedure while 32% (16276) chose to continue their pregnancies.

The report says that the Beatriz Velasco de Aleman Clinic and the Ticoman General Hospital have become the two main locations where abortions are performed.
