Mexican State of Guanajuato Passes Pro-Life Constitutional Amendment: 11th State to Do So

GUANAJUATO, MEXICO, May 11, 2009 ( - Despite bitter protests from pro-abortion organizations and representatives, the Mexican state of Guanajuato has passed a pro-life amendment, becoming the eleventh state to do so in recent months.

The amendment states that "a person is a complete human being from his conception until his natural death. The State will guarantee to him the full enjoyment and exercise of all of his rights."

Unfortunately, I don't think this will deter the feminists. They will continue to deny the personhood of the unborn. Except now, their efforts will be rightfully denounced as discrimination. United Nations documents can no longer trump local law, as they contain discriminatory measures. If the law discriminates, you are not bound to observe it.

It's only a matter of time before the rest of the world follows. Communism imploded because of its internal contradictions, its inability to allow people to look reality in the face and acknowledge what everyone knew to be true. It's the same case with feminism. People who support legal abortion must engage in semantic and moral gymnastics to justify their stance. The unborn child is a human being, and ontologically, that makes them equal to us all.

What I like about this constitutional amendment is that it's a personhood amendment, and not an amendment to ban abortion. This is the strongest kind of message about the equality of all human beings.
