S I The President Macky Sall goes away at the end of his mandate, we will all push a large souf of relief. Otherwise, that will not worry us too much, because his institutional coup would have no chance of passing. We are in Senegal, the country of Lettré Senghor. In this society in subtleties and nuances, the differences are not conflicting and the contradictions, not necessarily fatal. It is a healthy body, having the antibodies that it takes to resist viruses which poison the political life of its neighbors: coup, third mandate, single party, war of clan or religion.

Women Face Risks as Doctors Struggle With Medical Exceptions on Abortion

  Women Face Risks as Doctors Struggle With Medical Exceptions on Abortion HOUSTON — Dr. Amanda Horton, an obstetrician who specializes in high-risk pregnancies, had been counseling pregnant patients at a small hospital in rural Texas last month when a woman arrived in crisis: It was only 17 weeks into her pregnancy and her water had broken. The fetus would not be viable outside the womb, and without the protection of the amniotic sac, the woman was vulnerable to an infection could threaten her life. In Colorado or Illinois, states where Dr. Horton also practices and where abortion is generally legal, there would have been an option to end her pregnancy. © Annie Mulligan for The New York Times Dr. Alireza A.

Senegal, a "normal country"

No, the Senegalese exception is not a fiction. François Hollande wanted to be a "normal president", well, Senegal can be treated as "normal country", that is to say from a land to the almost miraculous singularity in the sordid context that we know.

It is true that trains do not get there on time, since they are often broken down when they exist. It is true that the garbage collectors do not pass all the time, but the factors are in the work, the mail arrives at their destination. It is true that, sometimes, the political debate ignites and that strikes become harsh, but, on the whole, courtesy reigning everywhere? Even with the cops! ?, the social climate is pleasant.

If the Senegalese state is not perfect, it has at least the merit of existing. Here, unlike Guinea, for example, we have the meaning of the institution and respect for the procedure. The formalism, the basic principle of the State, is the rule. This is what in all circumstances the administration provides minimum service. No wonder: this country has never known a catastrophic leader. If they have not achieved economic prowess, all those who succeeded themselves at its head have ensured to promote education, to respect human life, to preserve the social framework and to protect the elites.

An intelligent company

Senegal is, undoubtedly, The least repressed country in Africa. This gives this intelligent society where the living forces are physically as well as mentally. In the event of danger, priests, marabouts, writers, doctors, lawyers have the reflex to get out of the wood to avoid drift. The country of Birago Diop and Cheikh Hamidou Kane never falls into the ditch, he holds up, despite the enormous economic and social challenges that litter his way.

This is what Senghor had answered Ahmadou Ahidjo when he had told him his intention to leave, like Senghor, voluntarily the power and to give in to Paul Biya: "Be careful, Mr. President. Cameroon is not Senegal. Guinea is not Senegal either, are we tempted to add.

Impossible to imagine a third term followed by a military coup in Dakar! In a country where generals when they are not philosophers are lawyers or historians. At 20 as at 67, no one can start a dictator career.

Opinion: The coming state-federal showdown over abortion .
The federal law requires abortion in some emergency situations where the Texas law would label it a crime, write Mary Ziegler and Elizabeth Sepper. The stage is set for a showdown between the federal government and the states. At stake is the idea that abortion can be medically necessary health care. And if federal law doesn’t prevail, emergency physicians will continue to face the impossible task of navigating between the complexities of medicine and the vagaries of law. They will serve as de facto lawyers. And pregnant patients will pay the ultimate price. For more CNN news and newsletters create an account at CNN.
