Mexican Supreme Court Rules Abortion Legal To Protect Women’s Right To Gestate

Mexican Supreme Court Rules Abortion Legal To Protect Women's Right To Gestate

The Mexican Supreme Court has unanimously decriminalized abortion to protect women’s rights, calling the existing federal ban on abortion “unconstitutional.”

“The First Chamber of the Court ruled that the legal system that penalizes abortion in the Federal Criminal Code is unconstitutional since it violates the human rights of women and people with the capacity to gestate,” Mexico’s Supreme Court said.

Like the United States and many other Western countries, the move for abortion rights has been predominant. Abortion had been legally accessible in only 12 of Mexico’s 32 states before Wednesday’s ruling. 

Columbia, Argentina, Uruguay, and Guyana have all moved to legalize or decriminalize abortion. 

But abortion access would not be granted immediately. Mexico’s two congressional chambers will need to pass an accompanying law first, to eliminate abortion from the country’s penal code.

Two years ago, Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled against the state of Coahuila, which threatened women who undergo abortions with up to three years in prison and a fine. 

On Wednesday, abortion rights activists took to social media, posting green hearts that represent the so-called Green Wave for reproductive rights in Latin America.
