This week Mexican pro-life organizations warned that leaders of the Convergence Party have threatened to “help” Mexican teenage girls travel to the country's capital to obtain legal abortions.
The National Union of Parents and the Federation of Private Schools of Southern Tamaulipas denounced party leaders for endangering the lives of the teens who decide to abort their babies without the knowledge of their parents.
Convergence Party officials have said they intend to promote the idea to students at the universities and high schools in Tampico and help them “get around” local laws by paying for their transportation to Mexico City to undergo abortions.
The pro-life organizations said that parents, students and school officials must be warned of the plan in order to “prevent contact with these promoters of death.”
“We do not want students to be misinformed by people who only have political interests at heart and ignore the terrible consequences that this could have on our children,” the organizations said.
