Pro-life victory in Mexican Supreme Court
Catholic World News - October 07, 2011
By the slimmest of margins, the Mexican Supreme Court has ruled the two state amendments that protect human life from conception are constitutional.
Seventeen of Mexico’s 32 states have passed amendments protecting human life from the moment of conception. The two under consideration by the court were those passed by Baja California Norte and San Luis Potosí.
By a 7-4 margin, the court ruled that the personhood amendments were unconstitutional. Under Mexican law, a supermajority of eight votes was needed to strike down the amendments.
