Legal Framework

In April 27th, 2017, In Mexico City, Mexico’s legislature passed a law decriminalizing elective abortion in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

It is a first step for the improvement of women’s defense and promotion of sexual and reproductive rights. Women are free and safe to decide over their body within the legal framework of the capital city. Currentry, if women wish to end their pregnancy, they can do it in a legal and safe way within the limit of 12 weeks of gestation.

With the approved law is intended to reduce women’s dead ratio caused by an underground abortion procedure in unhygienic and unsafe conditions.

We want you to know that if you live outside Mexico City, it is not a limitation for you to enjoy the right to decide with legal basis, you just have to come to the Distrito Federal to practice a safe, hygienic and legal procedure.

Therefore, Fundación Naiset as an Non Gubernamental Organization, offers safe services of the legal termination of pregnancy in order to grant women’s right to have children by choice and not by chance affecting the most vulnerable population.

For more information regarding this law, you can check the following documents:

  • Decreto por el que se reforma el Código Penal para el Distrito Federal y se adiciona la Ley de Salud para el Distrito Federal.
  • Acuerdo que reforma, adiciona y deroga diversos puntos de la Circular/GDF-SSDF-01/06 que contiene los Lineamientos Generales de Organización y Operación de los Servicios de Salud relacionados con la interrupción legal del embarazo en el Distrito Federal publicada en la Gaceta Oficial del Distrito Federal el 15 de noviembre de 2006, publicado el 20 de junio de 2012.
