Abortion in Mexico
Mexico City abortion vote 'catastrophic', says pro-life leader

.- Mexico City’s decision on Tuesday to legalize abortion on demand is “catastrophic," said Fr. Thomas Euteneuer, STL, president of Human Life International.

"This vote is a slap in the face to Mexico City Catholics, going against the will of the people who protested loudly in the streets," Fr. Euteneuer said. The move also went against the federal government, he noted.

The priest noted that one of the major determining factors in Tuesday's vote was millions of American dollars that were pumped into Mexico.

According to Fr. Euteneuer, the radical feminist group GIRE received more than $5 million between 1999 and 2004 to accomplish this purpose. Planned Parenthood's affiliate, MexFam, received $3.4 million from 2002 to 2004.

"Tuesday April 24, 2007 is already being called 'Black Tuesday' in Mexico City," Fr. Euteneuer observed.

“Thank God for the courage of the Mexican bishops who informed these assemblymen that they would incur automatic excommunication the moment the first baby is killed," he said.
