.- The Population Council praised what it called the âextraordinaryâ results of legalized abortion in Mexico City. In less than four years, 55,000 abortions have been performed in the Mexican capital.
Abortion is legal in Mexico City up until the 12th week of pregnancy.
Sandra Garcia, a representative of the Population Council, also applauded the city's health care system for the high marks it received from various organizations, reported the newspaper Milenio on March 23.
President of Voz Publica, Leticia Gonzales Luna, later spoke with CNA lamenting that there âhas been no follow-up as to how abortion clinics are operating in the Federal District.â
âThat the deaths of 50,000 children are a success does not mean they are a success for women,â Gonzalez Luna said. She noted that the organizations that sponsored the studies leading to the legalization of abortion in Mexico City are the same organizations âselling the instruments to perform the procedure.â
âThe survey presented by Sandra Garcia is from an agency that is the principal abortion clinic in the world,â Gonzalez Luna explained. They would never draw attention to âsomething that goes against what they promote.â
âIt is sad that the deaths of so many thousands of children are applauded. It is a shame that Mexico City is becoming a tourist city for abortion,â she added.
âA woman who has aborted is a victim who tends to abort again.â She âis caught in a cycle of pain that she tries to get out of by justifying what she is has done and encouraging others to do the same,â Gonzalez Luna explained.
