Church calls Mexican capital “murderous city” and laments deaths by abortion

.- 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 “a murderous city.”

“The death of a 15 year-old girl at the Balbuena hospital due to a botched abortion on February 15 is a tragedy,” the editorial states.  “There 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,” the editorial continued.

“It is sad,” the article elaborated, “that 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 mothers” in the wake of the decision by the Legislative Assembly to allow abortion based on a supposed “mother’s right over her own body,” when in reality “her child is not part of her body, although he does develop inside of her.”

The editorial pointed out that the use of the term “interruption of pregnancy” does not change the reality of the fact that abortion is a crime.  “We 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,” the article concluded.
