Legalization of abortion could spread to other states in Mexico, cardinal warns: "Legalization of abortion could spread to other states in Mexico, cardinal warns
Mexico City, Sep 25, 2008 / 11:18 pm (CNA).- The Archbishop of Guadalajara, Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iniguez, warned this week that the bad example of Mexico’s Supreme Court in legalizing abortion in the capital could spread to other Mexican states and continue the attack on the family.
“The bad example of Mexico City and the Supreme Court could spread to other states, no doubt, but I hope it doesn’t happen,” the cardinal said during a Mass for students, teachers and employees of the Valle de Atemajac University.
Cardinal Iniguez said the legalization of abortion is an attack on the family, as well as divorce and abandonment by parents.
He encouraged young people to strengthen the family and warned that the State would not be able to solve social problems if it does not protect this institution."
