Attempt to legalize abortion, gay marriage fails in Mexico

National Front for the Family: "Mexico doesn't need colonizing ideologies imposed on it such as that of gender. What Mexico needs is a culture of life and of the family.”

The portion of a constitutional reform initiative seeking to legalize abortion and same-sex marriage in Mexico did not advance last week in the nation’s legislature.

A gender parity bill was debated and approved in both houses of the Mexican Congress May 23. The bill would require that half of the country’s public service sector be women.

Porfirio Muñoz Ledo, president of the Chamber of Deputies and a member of the National Regeneration Movement, had proposed that the bill establish rights to abortion and same-sex marriage. These proposals were not included in the bill’s final version, however, for lack of widespread support.

The bill would have to be approved by at least 17 Mexican states to take effect.

Speaking with ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish language sister agency, Rodrigo Iván Cortés, president of the National Front for the Family, said that “the initiative of Porfirio Muñoz Ledo is a Pandora’s Box, since under the facade of the umbrella of gender parity, what it introduces are elements of an even stronger contraceptive mentality and gender ideology.”

“For the National Front for the Family’s part, we are having a campaign to tell Muñoz Ledo that Mexico doesn’t need more culture of death. Mexico doesn’t need colonizing ideologies imposed on it such as that of gender. What Mexico needs is a culture of life and of the family.”

    The Mexican Supreme Court granted all Mexicans the freedom to marry in 2015. Many states as well as Mexico City affirmatively grant the right, some of them since before the supreme court decision. I’m not sure how affirmatively putting it into the constitution changes anything.

      YFC you claim to be Catholic but you support a “right” that rejects Catholic sexual morality …you cannot have it both ways.

      Holy Rosary is the Remedy UNIVERSALLY-
      20 mysteries of the True Life of the Nazarene.
      the Mexican Santa Meurte Cult – oppresses and suppresses Truth and confuses, hearts and minds –
      unjust “laws” can be struck off- at some point in the future-
      Gay “marriage” is impotent – infertile- anti woman, anti mother, anti truth and anti love,
      causing a baby to be perceived as buyable purchasable discardable of destroyable.
      TRUTH Frees BUT sadly, Self Deceit and Lust’s Lies are way easier to believe.

        Just don’t pray the FABULOUS mysteries. Those are Fr. James Martin’s favorite ones to pray on a rainbow colored rosary.
