Therefore, in Veracruz abortion is legal for five reasons:

  1. When it is the product of a violation
  2. When it’s reckless
  3. When there is danger of death
  4. When the product has malformations
  5. When you were conceived by non-consensual artificial insemination.

With this reform to the Penal Code of Veracruz, the right to sexual and reproductive health is guaranteed for Veracruz women.
