The unanimous ruling yesterday from Mexico's Supreme Court, which Says it's unconstitutional to punish abortion as a crime marks a historic moment for reproductive rights throughout Latin America, where there has been a wave of protests by women's and abortion rights groups in the past few years. To dig into this decision and its potential reverberations across the region. We're joined now. By Maria Antonietta Call day She is the director of I Pass. That's a reproductive rights organization for Mexico and Central America. And she joins us now from Mexico City. Welcome. Thank you very much so Let me ask you after all this time. Why do you think this ruling from Mexico Supreme Court came down now in particular? Well, this has been a very long process, And this case was brought to the court by the General attorney's office in 2017 and recently a year and a half ago, state of Oaxaca change its legislation and Two months ago, the state of Hidalgo and then the state of Veracruz. So I think that there is a wave of understanding women's rights in a different way. Then we have new voices in the court. Three are women plus the president. They've been playing a significant role advancing the agenda. Well, you know, we hear a lot about the power the influence of the Catholic Church in Latin America, and I'm curious. How is that influence felt add a political level in Mexico. The Catholic Church has, like mobilize all its power to try to stop this decision to happen, But the same had happened with the social movements. And I think that these proofs that the social mobilization from the ground also has power to Counter actor, the force of the Catholic Church. And although these legislation I mean, and I think it's very important to clear it doesn't decriminalized abortion in all Mexico. The decision is very specific about the state of what will the message that the court sent to the rest of the states is that they need to review the penal goat. The next following months. Years in Mexico is going to be very important because we can expect those regressive force in trying to push back, especially at the most conservative states. I want to understand more about the power of activism at play here because the abortion rights movement played a role as you say, not only in this ruling but has played a role more broadly across Latin America during recent years. Can you tell us a little more about that? Latin America is a very diverse region, and we have Countries that have had very progressive policies when it comes to women's rights like wood, why or what we have recently so in Argentina,.
