Spaniards oppose changes to abortion laws

Rights groups oppose any new laws that make it harder for a woman to have an abortion.

    Thousands are expected to turn out in Spain on Saturday to fight plans to make it harder for women to have an abortion.
     
    The draft law allows for a termination only in exceptional circumstances, such as rape.
     
    But it has caused an outcry, particularly among womens' groups in the country.
