Lawyers launch effort to overturn legalization of abortion in Mexico City

.- The College of Catholic Lawyers of Mexico has filed a complaint before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights against Mexico for legalizing abortion up to the twelfth week in Mexico City. 
 
In their complaint the College blames the Mexico City Legislature, Government Chief Marcelo Ebrard and the Supreme Court for the decision to make the procedure legal.
 
The group of Catholic lawyers argues that passage of the measure legalizing abortion, which occurred on April 24, 2007, violates Article 1 of the American Declaration on the Rights and Duties of Man.
 
They also argue that the legalization of abortion in Mexico City “violates the human rights of the unborn and disassociates from them the term death, which seems to erase their status as human beings and does not recognize that their lives are being ended.”
