ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Texas becomes ground zero for national fight over abortion rights in United States | 7.30” – below is their description.

In the United States, Texas has become ground zero for the national fight over abortion rights after outlawing the procedure in almost all cases. There are not even exceptions for rape or incest. Women now have to head interstate if they wish to terminate a pregnancy, and legal challenges are making their way up the system.

North America correspondent Kathryn Diss travelled to Texas and Colorado for this report.
