.- The organization Pro-Life Mexico is leading a march at the Santa Fe international bridge in order to convince Mexican women crossing into El Paso, Texas, not to go through with their intent to obtain abortions.
According to pro-life sources, many women from Mexico seek abortions in El Paso, where some 70 abortions take place each week. Most of those who arrive at clinics are adamant in their decision and only about 6 out of 70 individuals decide to forgo the abortion. In the state of Texas abortion is legal up to 21 weeks. Pro-Life Mexico offers emotional and economic help to women who are on the verge of obtaining abortions.
