Mexico City archbishop to Supreme Court: An attack on life is an attack on God – Catholic World Report

Following the ruling by Mexico’s Supreme Court opening the door to the decriminalization of abortion, the Archbishop of Mexico warned that an attack “on life, is an attack on God.” In a Sept. 9 message, Carlos Cardinal Aguiar Retes stressed that “for the Catholic Church, the human being is created by God in the mother’s womb, and therefore, we hold that life is sacred.” In a unanimous decision, the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation on Sept. 7 invalidated various articles of the penal code of the state of Coahuila. The invalidated sections refer to the prison sentence for women who intentionally abort their child, as well as restrictions for the healthcare personnel who help them.
