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."
