Abortion in Chile: 'It would give women fair chance'

There are only six countries in the world in which abortion is completely illegal - where a woman can be prosecuted for having a termination, whatever the circumstances.

Chile is one of them.

Now the country's first ever female president is trying to change that, bringing in a bill to allow abortion in certain limited circumstances.
