Spanish government backs tougher abortion law

The Spanish government has backed a proposal for a tougher abortion law.

The bill says early termination is no longer a right, and would only be allowed in cases of rape, serious foetal deformity, or when the mother's health is at risk.

Pro-choice groups have pledged to stage protests against the change, which will be debated in parliament.

Melanie Ruiz reports.
