An anti-abortion rally has been planned in Mexico City on Saturday, May 18. The demonstration is slated to begin at 09:30 (local time) at the Mother Monument and head toward the Congress of Mexico City.
Although the rally is expected to be peaceful, a heightened security presence and traffic disruptions are possible in the capital on the day of the gathering.
Although abortion is a crime in Mexico, it has been decriminalized in some states for reasons such as rape or risk to the life of the mother. In Mexico City, abortion is decriminalized until the twelfth week of gestation.
Individuals in Mexico City are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations and protests as a precaution, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
