The Primatial Archdiocese of Mexico criticized the “tireless interest” of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) “in decriminalizing abortion” in the country.
In an editorial in its weekly publication Desde la Fe (“From the point of view of faith”), the Archdiocese of Mexico criticized a recent decision of the First Chamber of the SCJN that determined “that a woman can appeal the laws that penalize abortion, even though she is not pregnant.”
“In addition, this criterion allows organizations that profit from abortion to fight, by means of appeals, the penal codes of the states in order to make abortion disappear from them and thereby liberalize its practice,” the archdiocese warned.
The First Chamber of the SCJN ruled 4-1 that “the mere condition of being a woman or a person with the capacity to gestate is enough to recognize the legitimate interest to challenge by means of a court appeal the regulation of the crime of abortion.”
