Twelve Mexican states now protect right to life in their constitutions

.- The San Luis de Potosi State Congress in Mexico approved a measure Thursday reforming the State Constitution to protect the right to life of children from the moment of conception.

Representative Vicente Toledo Alvarez said the reform would ensure that the State’s Constitution clearly recognizes the right to life as the most basic of all human rights and protects it from the moment of conception.
 
Before passage of the measure, Archbishop Luis Morales Reyes of San Luis Potosi said, “The Church has her principles and one of them is life. I am only stating that the Church supports life and will always support life, regardless of the politics or laws of the moment.”
 
“God is the only owner of every life conceived by woman, and as such that life will always have rights, the most important of which is the right to life,” the archbishop said.
 
San Luis de Potosi now becomes the twelfth Mexican state to enshrine protection for the unborn into its Constitution. The protections became necessary after Mexico City legalized abortion in some cases.
