.- The National Pro-Life Committee in Mexico has warned that if a proposed law legalizing abortion in Mexico City is passed, the number of abortions in the Mexican capital would increase from 30,000 to 150,000 per year.

The president of organization, Jorge Serrano Limon, revealed the data while announcing that he had sent a letter to the government asking it to drop the proposal to legalize abortion in Mexico City.

He also noted that in 2006, 96 women died in Mexico as a result of clandestine abortions, and not 1,600, as the proposed law claims.  He called the proposal “law of blood” that would take the lives of thousands of Mexicans.

“Legalizing abortion is true betrayal,” Serrano Limon wrote in his letter, “as well as the most cowardly of crimes that attacks the life of the innocent and the dignity of women, irremissibly harming them.”

He said that instead of pushing women into abortion, they should be given “options” for “resolving the psychological, social, economic and health pressures that they face.”

Serrano Limon also announced plans for civil resistance to the laws and he encouraged doctors to refuse to carry out abortion.
