    In Honduras, politicians have made a change to the constitution, permanently outlawing abortion.

    Rights groups say the move is a response to the decriminalisation of abortion in Argentina last month.

    Honduras is one of only a handful of countries in the world with a total ban on abortion.

    Al Jazeera’s Manuel Rapalo reports.
