Pro-life group seeks to stop spread of abortion pill in Mexico

.- A leading Mexican pro-life group, supported by bishops and lawmakers, has asked for a court injunction against the government’s new policy of including abortifacients in “family planning” programs. Jorge Serrano Limon, president of “Culture for Life,” said, “Civil organizations, the leadership of the Catholic Church, the Orthodox, Presbyterians, Evangelicals, the Mexican Red Cross, businessmen and lawmakers, are presenting juridical arguments and scientific proof for the reversal of this policy.”

The lawsuit argues that the policy is illegal because it violates the right to life, contradicts penal codes, health laws, and because it legalizes abortion and violates the rights of parents to educate their children.

Those who signed the lawsuit include 12 bishops, among them Cardinal Juan Sandoval, Archbishop of Guadalajara.
