    Abortion laws in Brazil may soon become some of the most restrictive in Latin America.

    Currently the procedure is only allowed in the case of rape or if the pregnancy puts the mother's life at risk.

    But now a congressional committee has voted in favour of a constitutional change that could ban abortion in all circumstances.

    Al Jazeera's John Holman reports from Recife.
