Thousands of anti-abortion people marched this Saturday in Mexico City to demand the prohibition of the interruption of pregnancy in the midst of the debate in the United States, whose Supreme Court could reverse this historic right.
At the rally held at the Monument to the Revolution, activists celebrated “the good news” of the draft ruling that was leaked this week with which the US Supreme Court would revoke the 1973 “Roe vs. Wade” ruling, which recognizes the constitutional right to abortion.
“50 years it took, 50 years they have been working to achieve this small possibilityto reverse what also brought abortion to our country, we need to act,” exclaimed Frida Espinosa, co-founder of the conservative association JUVI.
The demonstrators left the Monument to the Revolution to the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation (SCJN), where they accused the minister president, Arturo Zaldívar, of being against life.
There they criticized the rulings of the SCJN, which in September 2021 declared the prohibition of abortion unconstitutional, offered support to release those detained for it, invalidated the law of medical conscientious objection and denied that states can declare the beginning of life “from conception”.
“Welcome to institutions and individuals who seek to argue easy ways out for pregnant women, inviting them to perform an abortion, makes it an accomplice of future psychological problems in women who aborted and a murderer,” said a petition from the association. Activate.
The demonstration occurs while the debate on abortion in the United States has replicas in Latin America, which in recent years has advanced in the recognition of this right in countries such as Mexico, Colombia and Argentina.
