Queretaro, Mexico, Mar 30, 2021 / 16:00 pm
The unicameral legislature of the Mexican state of Querétaro passed a bill March 29 reforming the Law on Social Development to add protections for pregnant women and unborn children.
The legislature also passed a resolution urging the federal Chamber of Deputies to defeat proposed constitutional reforms that would open the door to abortion and gender ideology.
Both measures, introduced by Elsa Méndez, passed by a margin of 19 to 5.
The Querétaro state constitution already protects human life from the moment of conception, and the child in the womb is considered already born for all legal intents and purposes. The new law fortifies that right.
