.- In an editorial published on its website, the Archdiocese of Mexico City lamented the death of the first girl to lose her life from a legal abortion in the Mexican capital and said the killing of the unborn has turned the Mexican capital into âa murderous city.â
âThe death of a 15 year-old girl at the Balbuena hospital due to a botched abortion on February 15 is a tragedy,â the editorial states. âThere has been much public discussion of this incident because it was the first death of a mother seeking an abortion since April 24, 2007, when this practice was legalized in Mexico City,â the editorial continued.
âIt is sad,â the article elaborated, âthat from April 2007 to February 2008, there has been little public discussion of the scandalous carnage of 5,845 legal murders of defenseless children in the wombs of their mothersâ in the wake of the decision by the Legislative Assembly to allow abortion based on a supposed âmotherâs right over her own body,â when in reality âher child is not part of her body, although he does develop inside of her.â
The editorial pointed out that the use of the term âinterruption of pregnancyâ does not change the reality of the fact that abortion is a crime. âWe are sorry about the death of this mother, yes, but we cry with shame for the five thousand murders committed against innocent and defenseless humans in the hospitals of our murderous city,â the article concluded.
