Toluca, Mexico, Aug 21, 2021 / 06:01 am
A pro-life activist welcomed Wednesday a commitment from legislators in the state of Mexico not to discuss any bill to decriminalize abortion in the coming days.
Ángeles Bravo, coordinator of the National Front for the Family in Mexico state, said Aug. 18, “we thank the president of the Board for Political Coordination for publicly affirming his commitment not to discuss the proposals regarding the decriminalization of abortion in the extraordinary sessions that will take place in the coming weeks, before the turnover in the legislature.”
In recent weeks, feminist groups have pressured the legislators in Mexico state, one of the 32 federal entities of the country of Mexico, to pass a bill to decriminalize abortion that was introduced in July 2019.
The regular session of the Congress of the State of Mexico ended Aug. 13, though it is possible that extraordinary sessions could be held in the coming days.
