Mexico Supreme Court Accepts Petition To Review Mexico City Law Legalizing Abortion During First Three Months' Gestation

The Mexico Supreme Court on Friday announced that it has accepted a petition, filed by the National Human Right's Commission, to review the constitutionality of a Mexico City law that allows pregnant women to obtain an abortion during the first three months' gestation, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Lawmakers from the Party of the Democratic Revolution in March in the Mexico City Legislature proposed allowing abortions during the first three months of pregnancy in the city, and lawmakers approved the measure in April. City Health Secretary Manuel Mondragon said the law requires that women seeking abortions prove they are residents of the city except in cases of medical emergency.

He also said that each facility would be able to perform about seven abortions daily. Girls younger than age 18 will need parental consent to obtain an abortion. The law allows gynecologists who have moral objections to refrain from performing abortions.

NHRC, along with the attorney general's office, on Friday filed the petition, saying that the law violates a constitutional clause guaranteeing the right to life and that city legislators do not have the authority to approve measures related to health, the AP/International Herald Tribune reports. The court has not scheduled a date to hear the case, according to the Times. The votes of eight of the court's 11 justices are required to overturn a law.

The Democratic Revolutionary Party called on supporters of the law to block federal government offices later this week, the AP/Herald Tribune reports. "It's a political maneuver to satisfy a certain public opinion over this law," Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard said, adding, "But legally, it's got no base". Meanwhile, opponents of the law have said they will protest in front of city hospitals and encourage physicians to be "conscientious objectors," who will not perform abortions, the Times reports.
