Two experts in law and philosophy consulted by the Mexican daily La Joranda expressed their confidence that the country’s Supreme Court would rule against the legalization of abortion in the Mexican capital.
Valdemar Martinez and Rodrigo Guerra lead a group of experts that has been sending specialized information to the justices and although they realize that the Court is facing a “very difficult” decision, they are sure there are sufficient legal, biological, public heath and empirical scientific foundations to find the law allowing abortion unconstitutional.
Martinez said that the Court is currently reviewing the case. “I think the Court will rule that the law is unconstitutional,” he said.
At least eight of the eleven justices that make up the Supreme Court must rule against the Mexico City law in order for it to be declared unconstitutional.
Guerra insisted that there is enough scientific evidence to argue that the human being in all stages of development, whether born or unborn, is the same organism and therefore is an authentic subject of rights.
