The Mexican Bishops' Conference hailed the Supreme Court's 4-1 decision striking down a lower court ruling that had ordered the state of Veracruz to legalize abortion in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
"Today in Mexico the culture of life is triumphing," the conference tweeted after the Supreme Court announced its ruling Wednesday.
The conference thanked "each and every one who joined together to pray and to raise their voices."
Veracruz state's constitution protects life from conception to natural death, and state law provides few exceptions.
