Mexico's Supreme Court Rejects Legalization of Abortion

The Mexican Supreme Court has rejected the legalization of abortion, according to the Latin American news website and other media outlets.

“The court voted 3-1 against a move to pave the way for on-demand abortion access, rejecting a request to declare unconstitutional two pieces of legislation that effectively outlaw abortion, limiting access to specific circumstances of pregnancy endangering the woman’s life or cases of rape,” the article states.

According to current law, women who have an illegal abortion could be prosecuted.

“Supreme Court Justice Arturo Zaldivar, who championed the initiative, argued that current legislation around reproductive rights represents ‘real discrimination against women's health,’” the article states.
