Political party in Mexico launches legal initiative to stop spread of abortion to other Mexican states

.- Lawmakers of the National Action Party (known as PAN in Mexico) in the Legislative Assembly of Mexico City have launched a legal offensive to stop the legalization of abortion in other states, after it was approved up to the twelfth week in the Mexican capital.

The PAN party has proposed modifying the constitution of the State of Guanajuato to stipulate that the person be defined as “every human being from conception to natural death, and whose full rights and the exercise thereof shall be guaranteed by the State.”
 
“The members of the parliamentary group of the National Action Party are convinced that the embryo is invested with human dignity and therefore deserves respect for his life and has the right to an identity and to the protection of the State,” PAN lawmakers said.  Embryos “should not be the objects of manipulation or aggression that leads to their destruction,” they added.

Parliamentarian Antonio Ramirez Vallejo said that all human beings have the right to life. “It doesn’t matter if we are old, adults, young people, teenagers, children, babies, newborn babies, unborn babies, fetuses, embryos or zygotes.  Independently of the stage of development in which we find ourselves, we do not cease to have the human essence and the corresponding dignity that deserves full respect,” he said.
