.- The Archdiocese of Mexico City’s weekly newspaper, Desde la Fe, called the second anniversary of the legalization of abortion up to the twelfth week “disastrous,” saying the Mexican capital has been turned into a “murderous city,’ with more than 23,000 abortions and 14 maternal deaths as a result.
In an editorial, the newspaper reported that during the last three years organized crime has taken the lives of 10,000 people, but in two years legal abortion has taken more than twice that number in public hospitals.
The editorial warned that this “immoral, unjust and intrinsically perverse” law is clouding “the consciences of all those involved,” but above all it is poisoning new generations that are beginning to see abortion as something normal, despite the fact it entails the death of innocents in the maternal womb.
However, the newspaper praised the measures taken by numerous Mexican states to modify their constitutions, “close the door” to the legalization of abortion and thwart the efforts of intolerant and aggressive groups. These groups, the paper charged, “do not hide their hatred for the Church and their evil inspiration, and seek to impose on all of society their hedonistic, irresponsible and egotistical idea of fulfillment.”
