Mexico: Support group from Monterrey helps American women with out-of-state abortions

Mexico, Monterrey
August 14, 2022 at 20:59 GMT +00:00 · Published

A support group from their Monterrey office is offering help to American women looking to terminate a pregnancy through abortion as the co-founder of 'Necesito Abortar Mexico' Sandra Cardona Alanis explained on Friday.

Before abortion became legal in some states in Mexico, support groups established a system for women to terminate their pregnancies at home. Now, these groups are helping move abortion medicine north of the border and replicating the Mexican model in the United States.

"There are three ways to give them support and accompanying the women from the United States. There are three options. They are the ones that I give. The first is to deliver the medication to their doorstep. The second is that they they can come here, that they can cross and come for the medicine and the third is that they can come with us and we have a space that we call abortion," Sandra said.

On August 4, US President Joe Biden signed a new executive order to support travel for out-of-state abortions among other measures to counter the Supreme Court's ruling that changed the Roe vs Wade verdict last month by essentially handing over the issue of abortion legislation to the federal and state legislatures as opposed to the court itself. Democrats attempted to pass abortion legislation prior to the ruling but failed to do so.
