Check out Mexico's top court ruling on abortion

  • In a major development, Mexico's top court ruled that the criminalizing of abortion is unconstitutional

  • Supporters hailed this as a historic decision that would usher in an era of women equality and equal rights for females

  • "It is one more step in the historical struggle for (women's) equality, dignity, and the full exercise of their rights," said court president Arturo Zaldivar.

  • The ruling will be applicable across Mexico. Any woman who wishes to abort her foetus will be allowed to do through a judicial order

  • Mexico's states have the autonomy to dictate their laws, but they are invalidated if they contravene Supreme Court rulings that establish jurisprudence,
