Mexico City, Mexico, Feb 8, 2017 / 10:44 am
The Catholic weekly of the Archdiocese of Mexico City criticized the city's new constitution, saying that "it does not recognize what is most valuable for any human being, even from the maternal womb, the dignity of life."
In their editorial published Feb. 5, Desde la Fe described the new constitution as "an illegitimate document, hasty, a recipe of ideologies and juridical absurdities."
The voting on the articles of the Constitution ended on Jan. 31. The document will go into full effect on Sept. 17, 2018.
For the Catholic weekly, what ought to be a foundational document ended up being "hijacked by intolerant, murderous and absurd leftist positions by recognizing rights where they ought not to be and not recognizing those which ought to be in the legal document."
