Abortion in Mexico
Since 2021, Abortion in Mexico is no longer a crime; whilst its legalisation still varies by state. On 7 September 2021, the Mexican Supreme Court unanimously ruled that penalising abortion is unconstitutional, setting an important precedent across the whole country. The procedure is easily available on request to any woman up to twelve weeks into a pregnancy in Mexico City and the states of Oaxaca, Hidalgo and Veracruz,. Before 2021, abortion was severely restricted in the rest of the country. As of April 2015[update], 138,792 abortions have been carried out in the capital city since its legalisation in 2007.
