Protests as Spain moves to restrict abortions

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: About 300 pro-choice supporters gathered near Spain's Ministry of Justice to protest after the center-right government moved to make it harder for women to get an abortion on Friday, restricting a law that had allowed the procedure on request within a 14 week term. The proposed new rules will make Spain one of the most restrictive European countries on abortion and goes against the regional trend of greater ease of access, after Ireland legalized abortion under limited circumstances this year. The government's move is seen as a bid to rally core conservative support. The draft law allows abortion only in the case of rape or if the pregnancy poses a serious physical or mental health risk to the mother.
