Lawyer says Mexico should build daycare centers, not promote abortion

.- Constitutional lawyer Ingrid Tapia called on the Mexico City government last week to set aside public resources for the building of daycare centers instead of promoting abortion.

Speaking to Matutino Express, Tapia, who is a member of the Center for the Comprehensive Study and Formation of Women, underscored that human life exists from the moment of conception and that “abortion is a crime in 31 entities of the country.”

Tapia noted that 16 Mexican states have passed laws defending human life and that according to recent polls, 80 percent of Mexicans respect life.

She also said that women who seek abortions “do not do so in order to exercise a right, but rather because they are living in conditions of misery and deprivation.”  For this reason she called for improvement of the country’s social and health policies.

Referring to groups that promote abortion, Tapia said, “Instead of promoting a law to see how women can get rid of their children, there ought to be a law creating more daycare centers.”
