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.

The Attorney General on His Way Out?: Trump Mulls Firing Bill Barr, Advisers Trying to Dissuade Him

Trump is unhappy about more than just Barr’s recent voter fraud comments.

Published

President Donald Trump is considering firing Attorney General William Barr, with the Washington Post reporting Wednesday evening that Trump “remained livid” at him.

On Tuesday Barr said that the Justice Department did not find evidence of “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

An unnamed senior administration official told the Post that although Trump is upset about Barr’s comments, he’s also unhappy with Barr about other matters, such as his previous lack of action on the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign and his handling of John Durham.

The president is pressuring Barr to release the “Durham report,” which could implicate officials in using the investigation to target Trump for political reasons. Trump also sees Barr’s secret appointment of Durham to DOJ special counsel as a “stall tactic.”

AG Barr Reveals John Durham Was Appointed Special Counsel Weeks Before 2020 Election

In the wake of Election Day Attorney General Barr authorized federal prosecutors to “investigate substantial allegations” of voter fraud. But in his comments Tuesday, Barr claimed that “most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” said Barr.

Trump may want to fire Barr, but several advisers are trying to persuade him not to, according to the unnamed senior official.

Either way, it’s tough to see how Barr remains attorney general for much longer. If Joe Biden pulls off the steal and gets inaugurated, he will certainly replace Barr with his own AG. And if Trump hangs on for his second and final term, he may very well want to clean house and start afresh.
