Who's Yer Daddy, Mexico?

After listening to everyone from the pope to Bumblebee Man predicting that if Mexico City legalized abortion last month, the town would soon look like the uncensored version of Apocalypto, it turns out that a whopping 230 procedures have taken place since April 25. That's 46 a week...In Mexico City (pop. 22 million), the only place in the whole country (pop. 106 million) where it's legal. At this rate, there could be as many as 2,600 abortions in Mexico this year. Slightly short of the US average of 1.3 million.

It's like we kick Mexico's ass at everything.

Actually abortion is legal in all mexico, the difference is that in the rest of the country is based in the health risk of the mother and the health of the child (if the child will be born with deffects or probably dead) While in Mexico city the reason can be "Just because I want to" (meaning: I forget to use condom or pill)
