Argentina waiting to learn if Senate approves bill legalizing abortion

Description

Buenos Aires, Dec 29 (EFE).- Argentines are waiting with bated breath in the coming hours to find out whether the Senate approves a bill legalizing abortion up until the 14th week of pregnancy, which although it is being supported by the government is sparking differences between government backers and the political opposition, thus foreshadowing a very tight vote.With huge crowds of people gathering to hold a vigil at the doors of Congress in Buenos Aires - on one side a "green sea" of people in favor of the law and on the other those against the measure - the parliamentary session began shortly after 4 pm and is expected to last until early Wednesday morning. (Camera: ALBERTO CARATOZZOLO). SHOT LIST: THOUSANDS OF PRO AND ANTI ABORTION DEMONSTRATORS GATHER OUTSIDE THE ARGENTINE CONGRESS IN BUENOS AIRES, TO AWAIT THE RESULT OF THE PARLIAMENTARY VOTE ON A CONTROVERSIAL BILL LEGALIZING ABORTION.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
