The host of a television station in Mexicali, Baja California, is generating controversy on social networks for the comments he made about the decriminalization of abortion during a Channel 66 newscast, in which he stated that a woman could not abort without the authorization of a father .
Edgardo Ponce made a series of comments, which some described as misogynistic, after the Supreme Court ruling of Justice of the Nation (SCJN) in which it declared unconstitutional the criminalization of women who abort in the first stage of pregnancy.
“Before, why wasn’t the issue of abortion? Before, in our ancestors? Because there was not that debauchery in terms of irresponsible men and women who allowed themselves to get pregnant, ”Ponce told her news partner, Andrea Celeste, who prefers to remain silent.
But he did not stop there, the driver continued to comment on the subject and even warned that “A woman cannot have an abortion without the authorization of a father … how can you beget a child alone?”.
Faced with this statement, Andrea refuted him and asked him not to misinform the audience.
Ponce also said at the beginning of his participation that women would not have a better quality of life when aborting, and that it was not a human right (abortion).
“To avoid rapes there is security, to avoid abortions there is sex education”, and even said that now the issue of abortion was being discussed by the “crystal” generation.
