Mexico’s Supreme Court has unanimously voted to decriminalize abortion.
During arguments beginning Monday, eight out of 11 of Mexico’s Supreme Court judges spoke out in defense of decriminalizing abortion, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
The move makes Mexico the most populated Latin American country to allow abortion, the publication reported, and comes shortly after Texas’ Heartbeat Act went into effect, banning the procedure after six weeks.
“Today is a historic day for the rights of all Mexican women,” Supreme Court Chief Justice Arturo Zaldivar said in a statement, The New York Times reported. “It is a watershed in the history of the rights of all women, especially the most vulnerable.”
