Mexico Sacrifices Unborn
Mexico's Supreme Court has voted 8-3 to legalise abortion on demand in defiance of the majority of Mexicans who oppose abortion. This makes Mexico the first country in Latin America to legalise abortion on demand, which brings with it the risk of a domino effect throughout the continent.
Fr Euteneuer, president of Human Life International, has described the decision as Montezuma's Abortion Revenge, pointing out that the evil of child sacrifice has blighted every age in human history, manifesting itself today in the form of abortion on demand.
Mexico's decision is, in Fr Euteneuer's words a 'catastrophic defeat for life', but it is by no means the end of the road. Having been ignored by the courts, Mexico's pro-life majority must now voice its opposition to abortion through conscientious objection in hospitals and surgeries, by promoting respect for life in schools and churches and by joining pro-life groups.
