Mexico City Health Secretary falsified data to push for legalization of abortion

.- The sub-director of the international office of Fundacion Vida, Guillermo de Navascues, denounced the Health Secretary of Mexico City, Manuel Mondragon y Kalb, for falsifying data provided by pro-abortion organizations in order to convince the Legislative Assembly that abortion was necessary to diminish maternal mortality.

“The report by Mexico City Health Secretary, Dr. Manuel Mondragon y Kalb, which was presented to the Legislative Assembly the day before abortion was legalized, was based on false data” from pro-abortion organizations, Navascues said.

On the day of the debate, he continued, Mondragon y Kalb used the false data which suggested that between 1990 and 2005, of the approximately 21,000 maternal deaths, nearly 1,500 “were due to abortion and its complications.”

However, Navascues noted, Mexico City’s Health Department studies show that deaths from abortion are miniscule compared with other causes of death.  “It is clear that abortion is not the fifth cause of maternal mortality in Mexico City, as was claimed by the Health Secretary,” he warned.

Mondragon, he stressed, dared to give false information to the Assembly “because he had the clear intention of falsifying reality in order to get abortion legalized.”
