Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), National Action Party (PAN), Democratic Revolution Party (PRD), Labor Party and independent party senators presented reforms to the General Law for the Rights of Children and Adolescents to prohibit minors from participating in bullfighting.

A paragraph was added to Article 46 and a section to Article 47 of the law. The additions prohibit minors under 18 years of age from entering bullfighting, cockfighting and run of the bulls celebrations.

The reason for the change was to protect the physical and emotional health of children, as minors that participate in these events are put through one of the worst forms of labor abuse.

The senators expressed that Mexico should adopt reforms a soon as possible that prohibit the participation of minors in bullfighting events, in all levels of government.

The initiative was promoted by PRI member Diva Hadamira Gastélum Bajo; PAN member Gabriela Cuevas Barrón; PRD members Dolores Padierna Luna, Luz María Beristain Navarrete, Mario Delgado Carrillo, Alejandro Encinas Rodríguez, Zoé Robledo Aburto; Labor Party members Ana Gabriela Guevara Espinosa and Layda Sansores Sanromán; and independent party member Martha Tagle Martínez.
