.- Pro-life leaders in Mexico City explained during a press conference this week that the constitutional changes protecting life against abortion in 18 Mexican states do not have roots in religious or partisan doctrine.

During the press conference, the president of Red Pro Yucatan, Ivette Laviada Arce, asserted that the defense of human life was supported by a majority vote among lawmakers of all political parties and by the majority of voters in the 18 states.  This important reform, she said, is intended to protect women, especially those who are pregnant, “such that their rights are not only saved but also so that conditions are created enabling the state to give them greater care and protection.”

The constitutional changes also permit the defense of the fundamental right to life of unborn boys and girls in Mexico.

According to Notimex, Arce added that despite this protection, various states still allow for exceptions such as in cases of rape or to save the life of the mother.

The 18 Mexican states that have enshrined the legal protection of the unborn are: Chiapas, Veracruz, Querétaro, Baja California, Chihuahua, Campeche, Colima, Puebla, Durango, Jalisco, Nayarit, Quintana Roo, Guanajuato, Yucatán
