Culiacan, Mexico, Oct 2, 2018 / 16:42 pm
The congress of the Mexican state of Sinaloa on Friday passed a constitutional amendment protecting human life from the moment of conception.
The amendment, passed Sept. 28 by the unicameral state legislature, must be ratified by a majority of the state's municipalities.
The vote was 32 in favor, one against, and one abstention.
Since the 2007 legalization of abortion in Mexico City under the Party of the Democratic Revolution (PRD), 18 Mexican states have passed constitutional reforms protecting human life from conception.
