11-year-old rape victim couldn't have abortion under new Ohio law

An 11-year-old girl in Ohio was allegedly raped by a 26-year-old multiple times, leaving her pregnant, according to police reports. A state law passed in April, but not yet in effect, says that victims like her won't have a choice to have an abortion -- they would have to carry and deliver their rapist's child. CBS News digital reporter Kate Smith joins CBSN to discuss her reporting.
