“Pro-Life” demands Supreme Court remove abortifacients from family planning programs in Mexico

.- The director of the Mexican organization “Pro-Life,” Rocío Gálvez de Lara, has submitted a formal petition to the Supreme Court of Mexico asking it to amend the Official Mexican Norms on family planning, which now approve the use of abortifacients.

Gálvez reminded the Court that the Mexican constitution protects the right to life from the moment of conception and she requested that “this norm which is against life, against the law in Mexico, be amended and repealed,” in conformity with national law.

The letter, which was addressed to Chief Justice Mariano Azuela, cites Supreme Court decisions supporting the right to life from the moment of conception, as well as convincing scientific studies that show the morning after pill is abortifacient.

Gálvez said such studies prove the pill prevents implantation of a fertilized ovum in the uterus, and that this constitutes an abortion.

Last Wednesday, the Culture of Life Federation, another Mexican pro-life group, sent a letter to President Vicente Fox asking his intervention to modify the norm, reminding him that in 2002 before the UN General Assembly, the Mexican president said he was in favor of guaranteeing the right to life from the moment of conception.
