After a heated debate, the French National Assembly has passed a bill to outlaw websites spreading misinformation about abortion.

Pro-Life campaigners have been accused of pretending to give neutral information while putting pressure on women not to terminate pregnancies.

The new law, which still has to pass the Senate, extends existing protection against physical intimidation over abortion to digital media.
