Lawmaker denounces falsification of studies aimed at legalizing morning after pill in Mexico

.- Mexican Congressman Fernando Guzman Perez Pelaez has denounced the falsification of recent studies in Mexico aimed at proving that the morning-after pill is not an abortifacient. The studies led to the inclusion of the pill in government-run health care programs.

Perez Pelaez explained that in one study, “13 of the 45 women who underwent analysis to prove that the pill is not abortifacient were found to have had their tubes tied, were sterilized or were married to men who had undergone vasectomies, thereby discrediting the study.”  

“In addition absurd examinations were carried out on rats and monkeys, resulting in insufficient and unreliable analysis,” he added.

Perez Pelaez said information on the studies came from documents obtained through the Federal Institute for Access to Public Information, and that he would make them available in the coming days.  “It makes no sense to approve the morning after pill as a drug since it has been proven to be abortifacient,” he maintained.

The Mexican congressman urged the judges who are reviewing the law “to set aside the deception and manipulation that has been used to try to impose this norm.”
