Mexico’s Path to Legalizing Abortion

In a major turn of events in Mexico, which has one of the largest Catholic populations in the world, its Supreme Court last week decriminalized abortions. The Supreme Court ruling is a milestone for Mexico’s feminist movement. But change might not come quickly: Abortion law is mostly administered at the state level in Mexico, much of the country remains culturally conservative, and many Mexican medical workers are morally opposed to abortion. In a country where polls indicate most people don’t believe that abortion should be legal, what effect will the ruling have in practice? Guest: Natalie Kitroeff, a correspondent covering Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean for The New York Times.
