1:17 am
terminating a pregnancy you need that only money while women terminate pregnancies anyway it doesn't matter if it's legal or not our grandmothers did this great grandmothers up till the present day and so the problem is that if the state doesn't take responsibility we're going to continue having young women who are dead you know didn't tina it assessed him made around half a million abortions are carried out every year hundreds of women many of them poor have died because of it. in two thousand and fourteen around fifty thousand women according to the health ministry had to be treated in a hospital because of botched abortions i wanted to be legal because i understand that the people who are most affected the most vulnerable are the poorest women they want with the least amount of resources because this is more than just about economic resources this is also about access to information on wednesday argentina's congress will vote for the first time whether to legalize abortion the catholic church and pope francis argentinean have stepped up efforts to influence
1:18 am
the vote it seems they are not going there is a belief of the power the church has to take votes away in every province to mobilize catholic schools in the streets to excommunicate them. and that's why activists who support abortion rights have taken to the streets sent to ride president he says he is in favor of the debate and he would not veto a measure even though he personally does not support abortions they want this public debate has increased the social visibility of this problem this makes it easier for us in the health ministry and regional offices to speak seriously about sexual education in schools educate about contraception family planning so we can definitely prevent. borson which is not a solution for anyone for anything thousands of people who are for and against the abortion bill are expected to demonstrate on wednesday it is
1:19 am
a vote that has divided the country and even though its outcome is expected to be close it has forced argentina to debate on an issue that has not been talked about for far too long that is how will a decedent going to cite is it at least nine people have been arrested after you know miss bursty students and professors staged a violent protests in the bolivian city of la paz police fired tear gas and shot water cannon or protest has retaliated by throwing rocks and explosives students and staff are demanding wage increases and financial aid public anger has been growing over expenditure on the new government palace and the president's trip to russia for the world cup. is president donald trump has arrived back in washington after a summit with kim jong un in singapore he tweeted just landed a long trip but everybody can now feel much safer than the day i took office there is no longer a nuclear threat from north korea. percenters top diplomat to south korea to address the ending of the military drills
1:20 am
a secular state might compare has said that trump will resume those exercises if north korea stops negotiating in good faith he also said that the u.s. is hoping for major nuclear disarmament from north korea by twenty twenty just a month before that historic summit the u.s. president pulled out of a twenty fifteen nuclear deal with iran people there say it's proof that he cannot be trusted but many are not just angry with trump as a minister of explains from the capital tehran. as the world this week turned its attention from iran's non-existent nuclear weapons to north korea's actual ones iran's working men and women tried to come to terms with the personal price they've paid for the years their government spent building a nuclear deal with one american president only to see a broken by another one and a sunni then he has. also break the deal with north korea he's an unwise person and no one has confidence in him today he says something tomorrow he'll say something
1:21 am
else someone who makes a pledge and an hour later takes it back is not human no one trusts him and as the iran nuclear deal is lost so is hope that it would bring a better future iranians don't just blame the american president for their circumstances they say their own politicians also share the blame for decades of hostility against the united states and an endless pursuit for position on the international stage across the street a father of two says iran's people have no choice but to continue being patient but for him there is a difference between surviving and thriving and for the sake of his sons he says he plans on leaving the country is that us. i'm stressed my mind is always busy thinking about what will happen tomorrow what wrong decisions our leaders will make next how will they decrease pressure on the people i hope one day we will see our leaders make better decisions but now they think in a selfish way they don't think about their people they just pay attention to some
