Getting an abortion will become more challenging and more expensive for women across the state of Texas. Early Saturday morning the state legislature gave final passage to a bill that will result in some of the strictest abortion regulations in the country. 

Abortion providers say the new regulations will result in dozens of clinics shutting down. Mónica Ortiz Uribe from the Fronteras Desk reports that will have a big impact on the U.S./Mexico border.
