Mexico City, Mexico, Jul 28, 2020 / 14:58 pm
The Catholic bishops of Mexico have spoken out strongly against any effort to justify abortion ahead of a Supreme Court ruling that could affect the legalization of abortion throughout the country.
“We affirm, in accordance with scientific evidence, that human life begins from the moment of conception,” said Bishop José Jesús Herrera Quiñones of Nuevo Casas Grandes in Chihuahua state.
Abortion does not help women, said Herrera, who heads the pro-life committee of the Mexican bishops’ conference, in a July 24 press release.
“Human dignity must be recognized and cared for,” he said, stressing that women in crisis pregnancies should be offered material, physical and psychological support rather than abortion.
