Summary BIRTH BATTLEGROUNDIt's 40 years since a US Supreme Court case enshrined a woman's right to abortion, but now some say the clock is being wound back in Republican states across the US. Laws are being passed restricting when and where abortions can take place, which opponents believe will mean a return to the days of illegal backstreet terminations. The debate has brought out a loud lobby of pro-choice and pro-life supporters... neither of whom are showing any signs of backing down. On Tuesday's Dateline, Amos Roberts follows the campaign of one of the most vocal opponents... Texas Senator Wendy Davis, whose marathon 11 hour filibustering speech delayed voting on the legislation. But who should be able to make the final decision about the future of an unborn child?PYONGYANG POSTCARDGetting into North Korea to see the realities of life in the 'hermit kingdom' has long been one of the biggest challenges facing journalists. So, when SBS reporter Elise Potaka was invited for the celebrations marking the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War, it was an offer she couldn't turn down. Her postcard from Pyongyang on Tuesday's Dateline gives a fascinating look at how the country creates the carefully choreographed image it wants to present. But there are also glimpses of the pressure people feel to follow leader Kim Jong-un, at any cost. And she meets an Australian trying to forge friendlier relations between the two countries, who believes the media has created a false picture of life there.CRIME BUSTERGuatemala is one of the most violent countries in Latin America... it's estimated there are around 15 murders every day. On Tuesday's Dateline, Giovana Vitola follows police into some of the most dangerous areas of the capital to see the devastating effect it's having on people and their lives. But one woman is determined to put a stop to the spiral of gang violence... the country's first female Attorney General, Claudia Paz Y Paz. She tells Giovana that no one is above the law... even the country's former dictator Rios Montt was convicted of genocide earlier this year. But has she really been able to make a difference for people who face violence as part of everyday life? And what's it like living as enemy number one to Guatemela's influential crime gangs?
