Thousands attend anti-abortion rally in Mexico
TRT World says a pregnant 15-year-old girl has undergone an ultrasound on stage during an anti-abortion rights protest in Mexico City, where some 10,000 demonstrators prayed and shouted slogans amid the spectacle.
Sunday’s March for Women and Life, which wound from the Paseo de la Reforma to a rally in front of the city’s iconic Angel of Independence monument, was made up mainly of Catholic groups pushing back after last month’s Supreme Court ruling that would decriminalise abortion in Mexico.
“The government … is elevating the right to abortion as a right to kill,” 56-year-old protester Alma Bello told the AFP news agency.
