Pro-life expert discusses effects of legalized abortion in Mexico City

.- Amidst protests from pro-abortion groups in Mexico over recent initiatives to protect the unborn at the state level, Carmen Alba, director of the Institute for the Rehabilitation of Women and the Family (IRWF), cautioned that abortion is neither a “solution” nor a definitive end to a woman’s “problem.”

In a column published by the Mexican daily “El Grafico,” Alba explained that since Mexico City legalized abortion up until the 12th week of pregnancy, she has “seen a greater number of young women at the IRWF considering ending the lives of their babies than we have in the past ten years.” She added that the “girls are mainly between the ages of 14 and 25.”

Those who visit IRWF following an abortion all share the same story, Alba continued. According to her, these women suffer from “confusion, sadness, depression, anguish,” as well as “nightmares” and the need to “search for a substitute baby.”

Almost “48 percent consider suicide,” stated Alba.

She said that contrary to what abortion supporters claim, “Life after an abortion is not simple, it requires honest and specialized treatment that aids in resolving the grief and pain” caused by the procedure.
