North , South East and West, already half of the states are against the constitutional amendment to stop the D.F. In Mexico City there are 14 clinics.
Life begins at inception in these states. 59% of the Mexican population are women.
Mexican state hospitals only offer abortion. Poor people have to go to ‘curanderas’.
Hospitals are overburdened. Only 14 hospitals are available. 3.300 abortions a month

Barriers to Reproductive Health in Mexico, Dr Olga M. Lazin-Andrei and Jessica Elihu, UCLA
“ As a woman I had to learn not only to cook, to sew, and to raise my children, but also how to induce an abortion” (unskilled worker, mother of three).
“ I made a catheter using an electric cable from which I extracted the metal wires. I tried several times to insert it by myself and finally succeeded” (kindergarten teacher, mother of three).
“ Nobody and nothing could stop me in my making the decision to get rid of my pregnancy. I assumed all risks involved; I did what I felt I should do for my family, to bring up my children” (maquiladora worker, mother of two).
Of the 1.7 million abortions per year in Mexico, 850 thousand are induced. Statistics further show that abortion is between the third or fourth cause of death and between the second to fourth causes of hospitalization in Mexico.
While abortion is illegal in other Mexico, the threat of prosecution is usually only a threat. But if one is caught, it is a lifelong stigma.
A research study in 1992 in Mexico City determined that of 600 women inmates in the Tepepan jail, only one had been convicted of provoking an abortion. She was 81 years old, nearly blind, and an alternative health care worker. (Martinez)
As this case illustrates, there is minimal prosecution of the offenders. In fact, corruption ensures little prosecution. A woman pays the equivalent of approximately 1,000 U.S. dollars to secure her release from any charges that are brought (it is called the amparo , that is the Mexican habeas corpus law). It is no wonder abortion, while illegal, continues to flourish outside the mainstream of health care providers and procedures. Even the government speaks from both sides of its mouth, “Abortion is illegal, a sin, and punishable; pay up!”
The Mexican health care system is sub-divided into many sectors including the salaried sector (social security), state sector (open to all), and the private sector consisting of many layers. All of these factions serve to create confusion, under-coverage and a lack of resources.

To estimate the seroprevalence for HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B and herpes 2, and analyze the risk factors associated with these diseases in female commercial sex workers (FCSW) and hetero-, bi-, and homosexual men. Women are being recently hit by the
Seroprevalence of T. pallidum antibodies was 6.5% in FCSW. 4.2% in heterosexual men, 10.1% in homosexual men and 7.1% in bisexual men. HB-Ags was found in 0.3% of FCSW, in 0.6% of heterosexual men, in 3.8% of homosexual men and in 1.1% of bisexual men. Anti-HBc was detected in 9% of FCSW, 5.9% of heterosexual men, 37% of homosexual men, and 27% of bisexual men. HIV antibodies were found in 0.2% of FCSW, 8.8% of heterosexual men, 42.7% of homosexual men and 27.7% of bisexual men. STDs and gonorheea, and Herpes 2 are also prevalent.
The maternal mortality ratio was 47.3 per 100,000 live births. The main causes of death were hemorrhage (30.9%), preeclampsia/eclampsia (28.2%), and septic shock (10.9%). Six factors were significantly associated with maternal death: age (OR = 1.09, 95% CI = 1.00-1.18), marital status (OR = 16.2, 95% CI = 1.3-196.1), number of antenatal visits (OR = 1.3, 95% CI = 1.0-1.6), preexisting medical conditions (OR = 23.3, 95% CI = 6.6-81.6)
