On Tuesday 13, Dr. Sandra Peniche Quintal, Yucatecan who is the current head of the Mérida’s Humanitarian Services in Sexual and Reproductive Health Clinic (Clínica Servicios Humanitarios en Salud Sexual y Reproductiva de Mérida), was attacked by an unidentified subject, allegedly mentally disturbed.
The attack occurred in broad daylight, right in front of Dr. Peniche’s commercial premises, on the corner of Calle 54 and 49, in the barrio of Santa Ana, downtown Mérida.
According to information published by reporteroshoy.mx, the suspect stabbed Dr. Peniche with a screwdriver on the back once, and as he tried to stab her a second time, the doctor turned around and defended herself.
The subject ran away and one of the doctor’s employees followed him for several blocks, until Municipal Police officers showed up and arrested the aggressor, who was transfered to the municipal detention facility in Mérida.
Dr. Peniche, who apparently did not suffer serious injuries, was required to file a complaint with the State Attorney General.
The doctor has been crticized and verbally attacked several times before, as many people disagree with her work, because she believes that “women’s rights must be respected by law.”
The Mérida’s Humanitarian Services in Sexual and Reproductive Health Clinic (Clínica Servicios Humanitarios en Salud Sexual y Reproductiva de Mérida) describes itself as a Non-Governmental Organization, with a social basis, as a Feminist activist group and promoter of the exercise of Human Rights, in particular of the rights to life, to enjoy the benefit of scientific and technological progress, and with the right to information, and free sexual and reproductive decision power.
