State congresswoman Mónica Rodríguez Della Vecchia took to the streets of the city of Puebla, Mexico to raise awareness of the #ConLosNiñosNo (Not with children) campaign promoting her bill that seeks to prohibit sex changes in minors and punish those who force children or adolescents to undergo such procedures.
If passed, Rodríguez’s law calls for one to three years in prison and a fine to be imposed on “whoever makes, conditions, coerces, pressures, or forces a girl, boy, or adolescent to change or modify, through any mechanism of an external, therapeutic, or similar nature, their sexual identity, as opposed to their biological identity.”
Speaking with ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish-language news partner, the legislator said: “On Wednesday, March 29, I joined the campaign of the citizen participation platform Actívate, since they promote initiatives that bring benefits to society and the family.”
“It gave me great pleasure to be able to be on the flyer where we were accompanied by young people, people from organized civil society and members of Actívate,” Rodríguez said.
