Spanish protest against abortion curb

Thousands of Spaniards have protested in Madrid against a draft law backed by the government that would restrict the right to abortion. Activists carried banners saying “Allow mothers to decide” and “Deciding makes us free”.

The law would limit abortion to cases of rape, and instances where the health of the mother was at serious risk. Under current legislation, any woman can have an abortion within the first 14 weeks of becoming pregnant.
