3:40 pm
by which is spoken as asians. nearly a year ago june fourteenth. two thousand eighteen a sea of green handkerchiefs and soaring hopes to finally legalized abortion in argentina. a hundred and twenty nine four two one hundred andd twenty five again. the lower house of parliament voted in favor of granting the legal access to abortion. but the joy was short lived. two months later on august eighth and also by tight margin t the country senate voted to maintain the nineteen twenty one bam. one steeped in latin america's catholic doctrines and history anti abortion advocates represented by blue handkerchiefs cheered the news. bubut womomen's rights advocates argue that in a country where anywhere between three hundred and fifty and five hundred thousand illegal abortions are performed every year. they are particularly dangerous for poor women without access to good health services.. sincee last year's roads the debate over the abortion issue
3:41 pm
has not gone away. even if the current law provides an exception in the case of rape an eleven year old rape victim and her family have to fight for weeks to be granted an abortion. finally doctors performed the c. section. and in march for women's day the streets of when asari's were awash with green. the color of the pro choice movement. even at the con film festival the issue was on the red carpet. protesters chiming in at the screening of a documentary. and such efforts are expected to increase. the a abortion issue is likely o be in the spotlight as argentina gears up for new elections this fall ones that could change your number if you.. come on t the side story so if u don't own westford joins us -- human rights lawyer and president of france. latin america association so if you think about you joining us herere in the studio -- this little. was narrowly defeated a year ago is it likely to papass this tim.
3:42 pm
okay i'm not one to clear something -- what is coming what is happening now in the -- volume it in and when our societies it's not the vote of the law it's just the presentation the official presentation of the new law. which is of course a kind of copy but a better one i would say of the former. one which has been -- rejected by the senate in december in argentina okay and that of course under pressure from the catholic lobby which oversees very powerful in our chat in the lecture lobby and evangelist lobby. to saigon which is on the moment i would say stronger thahan the catholic one interesting yeah. so coming out to the duty original question is this likely to pass this time to think okay. okay so what i would say is that the law is been presented it will not be voted. it will stay or on the board of the chief of the parliament or
3:43 pm
if we did go to commission. if there is nothing happening that is to say if it's not p put ininside of the agendaa of the parliament the low would would be -- how would i say no invoice after two years and then you will all have to be presented us said that because i think they can just basically oppose it do nothing on that it just basically die away? exactly but i think with the new i mean with the election in october something would happen missing of cpp to lots of women on the streets yeah -- definitely willing full you know but they say the right to choose to do with their own bodies which you know many people are against clearly but lots more people are in favor of and you know this but they said that's how it should be. what happens now in argentina so if if a woman wants to have an abortion i mean it is it is it a dangerous underground processes often is the case? had a defense of the case out in
3:44 pm

3:53 pm
and use director l'express news magazine he was also one of the co founders of beef and tv which is the most watched ruling is coming from. so he's a big at background in managing news if it's interesting that he would come to choose to take this particular at route but in any case at he has been i'll tell you his company's been thing later but just to show you. how it functions at very he's got the he has said again you own a two block this is name we're going to steer it steer clear all sensitive issues so it's just going to be stuff that is maybe not as? as as concerning as maybe i don't know -- sensitive issues such as terrorism or a big political questions but they were allowing bets on the outcome of the european elections for example. and question such as will impact they leave at psg before the end of the season will power city hall get rid of electric scooters. that kind of idea and it's just this is possibly the thin end of a wedge those now. well i think so to be skeptical be slippery slope button was added generally speaking
3:54 pm
journalism and and use content had there are turned there are ethical questions at the children japan at the journalistic at. and practice and if you start alallowing a vieiewers -- news audiences to bash on the outcome of events at but it's getting very commercial first of all and montreat interests are taking looking at this weekend the bat and everything but betting on on the actutual function of ththe s or w what happensns in the use t seems items items. that works it's a strange one well -- i've put first which is a concrete he's speaking it's not it's not using actual money at what the way it works is you. you you get credits on this web we set up the put this website you get to bebe coins i think is a play on bit coin. b. as i in the letter b. coin ad essentially at the top the twenty top people at the end of the month. i get the app a button prize money for one thousand jurors is divvied up between them so it is
3:55 pm
very much i i suppose limited in terms of how how. how off the rails it can go -- in terms of people losing money and what not and it's not going to go completely bonkers at but i would say at i think he's speaking it's kind of a slippery slope if we start on this track of betting on the news. okay should be better what comes next. environment news you will not allolo way of at andydy malaysio anyways back to countries of ororigin and this includes fraus well it would depend on the owner well there you go it's interesting because this is kind of a trend snow and indeed we our own -- just gonna misery a in -- in new york did report recently on the city of philadelphia and how it's made which has a big recycling industry but the rush exporting a loss of there. the good the couldn't the came out of the recycling process on on usable and it was going to china and china's not been saying no -- we're sending a lot of the spot to or not take it anymore now malaysia is following suit. and a four hundred fifty metric tons of plalastic which has been sent back to twelve developed countries including at the u. s. u. k. australia and france.
3:56 pm
find out one of their ministers. you'll be in -- basically said developed countries like the like here when he mentioned the u. k. but it's the same with a front of others always prioritize recycling and its people a follow suit but they do not realize these wastes are dumped in our country he also called. the companies involved in importing not waste treasures essentially it's a case of i suppose deal with your own. waste we're not gonna make an industry of this anymore and i think that's a fair enough yeah to be honest with you the kind of in the sense that we get to see. we get to really have how would you say and the the consequences of our lifestyle and y you knows well because he's a process consequences ourselves will be done to actually change the problems. we need to make sure we get that gets worse with right exactly and i and i so it has led foror example i in philadelphia at headlines like this in local and media philly is incinerating half of its recycling because they couldn't. as sent into the china prop the china problem so to speak on his party or full so it created this awareness. there was an awareness in terms of people's practices okayy lets geget to the eagle you've been that easy with a photo of an eagle that's gone viral let's have a look.
