Mexico Eyes Legalizing Abortion With National Vote

Published

on

According to a report from France24, Mexico is considering new reforms that would loosen up its traditionally restrictive policies on abortion.

Mexico City legalized abortion in 2007, which was then followed by the southern state of Oaxaca.

In the other 30 Mexican states, abortion is only allowed in cases of rape or if the mother’s life in danger.

These policies are similar to other traditionally Catholic Latin American countries, with the exception of Cuba and Uruguay, which have legalized abortion.

Leftist President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s party has introduced legislation to decriminalize abortion nationwide for up to 12 weeks of pregnancy.

But now it is stuck in Congress thanks to conservative opposition. AMLO already leads a broad coalition of diverse interests from leftists to evangelical Christians, so it’s understandable why he has had trouble moving the legislation via conventional means.

Now, he’s calling for a referendum on the issue.

Like many other countries, Mexico is embracing global progressive causes such as abortion, which have seeped into many countries’ political discussions through NGOs, media, and academia.

The country is currently being rocked by social instability thanks to drug cartels. Many parts of Mexico are veritable failed states and practically controlled by drug cartels.

Latin America is currently experiencing a leftist wave of unrest, as demonstrated with events taking place in Bolivia and Chile.

The battle against leftism is not just confined to the U.S. It’s global in nature.

Due to Mexico’s status as the U.S.’s neighbor, any kind of sharp political shift in Mexico could spill over to America because of its porous borders Mexico is no hub of stability and U.S. lawmakers should start recognizing that when crafting border policies.
