Baja California Sur: Anti-abortion initiative blocked in state congress, of sorts

The state congress in Baja California Sur failed to pass an extremely prohibitive anti-choice legislation of the "life from conception" type, though hardly thanks to any brave stands from progressive forces: While 11 deputies from PAN, the local PRN party, and Convergencia (the nominally left-wing party allied to AMLO) voted in favor, nine deputies - five from PRI, four from PRD - simply abstained, rather than having the guts to vote against the legislation

Stopped, for now.
