Democratic Party of the Revolution seeking to redefine concept of abortion in Mexican law

.- Representative Gerardo Villanueva Albarran of the Democratic Party of the Revolution (PRD) announced he will put before the Mexican House of Representatives a plan to modify the concept of abortion in order to promote its legalization on a national scale.

Albarran’s plan is to modify the Federal Penal Code substituting the phrase, “Abortion is the death of the product of conception at any moment during pregnancy,” with the phrase, “Abortion is the interruption of pregnancy once the viability of a fetus is established.” 

Albarran, who also holds a key position in the Mexico City government, has sent two aids to the Mexican Institute of Social Security and the Institute of Social Security and Services for State Employees, asking them to conform to the law recently passed by the Mexico City Legislative Assembly legalizing abortion in the capital.

In response, both institutes said abortions would not be performed in their facilities since they are not governed by Mexico City laws but by federal legislation.
