Death penalty and abortion on same level, says Mexican governor

.- The governor of the Mexican State of Jalisco, Emilio Gonzalez Marquez, who has asked the country’s Supreme Court not to include the morning-after pill in government-run health care, stated this week that executions, the death penalty and abortion are all on the same level.

In an interview on Mexican radio regarding the morning-after pill, Gonzalez explained that he is a “defender and promoter of life."

"Everything that has do with death, whether it be drug trafficking, kidnapping, death penalty, or abortion, I put them all on the same level.”

“Whoever kills a defenseless human being, who executes a person, whoever kidnaps and kills ... that is part of the culture of death, and I’m sorry, I am a person who defends life,” he said.

He said his pro-life position was not based on religious reasons but rather comes from his knowledge “that I am a person and I don’t have the right to take the life of another person."
