Morales said that the pro-family platforms “are against harming children with puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones, and the amputation of healthy body parts that cause irreversible damage to children.”
The march participants expressed their support for bills such as those introduced by Congresswoman América Rangel in the Mexico City Congress and Mónica Rodríguez Della Vecchia in the Puebla state legislature. Both bills seek to prohibit and penalize hormonal and surgical sex-change treatments for children.
In addition, they encouraged federal congresswoman María Teresa Castell to introduce a similar bill in the national legislature.
During the march, participants also demanded that the right of parents to choose the type of education they want for their children be respected. In addition, marchers demanded that women be valued and respected, and that terms such as “pregnant persons” not be used.
Ruth Sánchez, the National Coordinator of Women of Initiative, stressed during the event: “I am a woman and I demand, on behalf of all the women of Mexico, that our position as women be respected. We cannot be erased and reduced to the simple term of pregnant persons. No one can be what they are not. One is a woman from the womb of our mothers.”
“We are women and we not only menstruate or gestate, we also think, work, support, and contribute from different situations to society, to our families, and that gives us the right to be taken into account and that everything that cost us decades of struggle be respected,” she said.
