.- During a Mass celebrated with pro-life demonstrators who are calling on Mexicoâs Constitutional Court to declare abortion illegal, the Archbishop of Guadalajara, Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez, said politicians and public officials who support abortion do not speak for the Mexican people, who love life.
The cardinal led one of the numerous pro-life marches that took place in several cities throughout Mexico last Sunday in order to call on the high court to declare the law passed in Mexico City legalizing abortion to be unconstitutional.
âThis march is for the family and for human life,â Cardinal Sandoval said, âand it is an opportune moment for our leaders and legislators to take the peopleâs pulseâ and to âpass consistent laws because they represent the people.â
âIf they are true representatives of the people, they should represent them with dignity and reflect the values of this nation that loves the family and life,â he added.
Cardinal Sandoval denounced the anti-life measures that have been proposed in the legislature as âcontrary to the law of God and to the right to life.â
âLife is the basic gift that God gives to people and is the fundamental right of the human being, a right that must be respected, because nobody is master neither of oneâs life, nor of that of another. The master is the Lord,â the cardinal emphasized.
