Mexican Supreme Court invalidates second state law against abortion | Crux Now

MEXICO CITY — The Mexican Supreme Court has invalidated a clause in a state constitution that provided protection of life “from the moment in which an individual is conceived … until their death,” arguing that no state government could determine when life begins; only the federal constitution could determine that. The unanimous Sept. 9 decision also denied any legal rights to the unborn, with the decision stating, “For the court, is inadmissible to establish that the embryo and fetus deserve the same legal protection as born persons.”
