Officials are challenging Mexico City's new law legalizing first-trimester abortion. But as the Supreme Court decides whether to take their case, city officials and activists are doing what they can to ease its implementation.

well. I don't think abortion is a right. I think it is murder. I only hope that my cousins in Mexico can stop it.

Sorry Adam, but you were prefer it as it was before this law?
The article says that before this law: "Mondragon has told the city assembly that botched abortion is the fifth-highest cause of maternal mortality nationally. From 1990 to 2005, 21,646 women in Mexico died of maternal causes, he said. Of those, 537 were from abortion complications and badly performed procedures and 64 percent occurred among women who lack access to the public health care system."
