Report Mexico's Supreme Court rules that abortion is not a crime in Mexico General Posted September 7 and that laws criminalizing abortion are unconstitutional. From the New York Times (wasn't a paywall for me) https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/07/world/americas/mexico-supreme-court-decriminalize-abortion.html Quote MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that making abortion a crime was unconstitutional, setting a precedent for its legalization nationwide in a conservative Catholic country of about 120 million people. .... Considering a law in the northern state of Coahuila, which mandates up to three years of jail for women who elect to have an abortion, the Supreme Court ruled that any criminal penalization of abortion violated Mexico’s Constitution. The decision does not automatically make abortion legal across Mexico, experts said, but it does set a binding precedent for judges across the country. Reproductive rights advocates said they planned to use the ruling to challenge laws in the vast majority of Mexico’s states that mandate either jail time or other penalties for women who choose to have the procedure. Activists also plan to push state authorities to free women currently serving time for getting abortions. This is huge.
