7:07 am
fire, are being investigated. wind gusts this week are forecast to hit as highed an 70 mile always hour. we mentioned the 58-miles-per-hour gusts today, this morning. that could force crews to fight the flames solely from the ground. the camp fire now in northern california has forced more than 50,000 people out of their homes. in the town of paradise, nearly wiped out by that fire on friday, firefighters right now are scrambling to save any structures that are still standing. this morning, we're learning more about the people would risked their lives to save others. really an extraordinary scene at the river hospital where people loadled patients into their personal vehicles and drove them to safety while thousands of buildings burned around them. mireya villarael is in paradise. >> reporter: the scorched cars, one of the few evacuation routes

7:14 am
counted in this process. >> everybody keeps saying here we go again, florida, florida, florida. >> look, the truth of the matter is 65 counties were able to follow the law and make sure the process went as smooth as possible. sadly two counties did not follow the law. >> reporter: the state's law enforcement agency has said so far there is no evidence of voter fraud. the senate race could end up in a second recount, a hand recount. where workers would review questionable ballots one by one to try to determine voter intent and that could lead to multiple court challenges, norah. >> we will continue to follow closely, manuel, thank you. votes are being counted in two other states where crucial races are too close to call. in arizona, democrat sinema is expanding her lead over mcsally. sinema is more than 30,000 votes ahead with about 200,000 still

8:36 am
you're the mother of a 14-month-old baby, you're still a practicing emergency room physician, it is now become such a political -- politicized and such a controversial job, did you have any trepidation about taking it? >> being a parent has clarified my values and what i want to do is to shape the future for my son eli and its a future where all people are treated the same, that all people have the right to health care and where its a society where we trust women and we trust all people to make the best decisions for themselves and their bodies. >> so were you encouraged after the elections? >> yes and no. on the one hand, we saw people rise up, women, people of color rise up to speak in favor of reproductive rights and access to health care, but on the other hand, less than 24 hours after the elections, the trump administration came out with new rules that would prevent employers or that would allow
8:37 am
employers to deny women birth control coverage. i can't believe its 2018 and we're still debating birth control. imagine if we're having the same conversation about have a sec toe mys or insulin. women's health care is health care and health care shouldn't be political. >> it is your first day at the job but you are familiar with the trump administrations health commissioner in baltimore. you sued this administration twice and won. given that this is a president who seems to hold grudges and has personal reactions to people directly, how do you plan on working with this administration going forward? >> i come to this work as a doctor and not a politician. i'll work with anyone who wants to expand access to health care. for me its deeply personal. i treated a woman who waited more than a year before she had a lump in her breast examined and by the time she got treated, it was too late. she had met static cancer and she guide died not long after i saw her. its about saving peoples' lives.
8:38 am
that's the work we've done at planned parenthood for over 100 years. >> doctor, you said becoming a mother clarified your values, so many people i've talked to who want to restrict abortion rights said parenthood clarified their values and that's why they want to restrict abortion rights. what do you tell those people that have the same parent based authenticity that you claim? >> my problem is if they want to impose their own beliefs on other people, as a physician, i'm trust my patients. my job is to give medically accurate information to my patients and allow them to make the best choices about their health. i don't think that politicians have any role to play in the exam room in determining people's personal, medical decisions. i trust women. >> let's talk about what's been happening at the ballot box. you had seven more governors
8:39 am
that were pro-abortion elected and also antiabortion laws that passed in alabama and west virginia. alabama became the first state in the nation to enact a personhood clause in its constitution, west virginia became the first state to approve a measure stripping the state constitution of any abortion rights restrictions, including an issue about medicaid funding. what's happening in the states? >> we're seeing mixed results and we are seeing people rise up in record numbers in favor of women's health care. we have more than 25 governors now who are pro-women's health. we're also seeing solidly red states like utah, idaho and nebraska voting in favor of women's health care. health care has to be a fundamental human right and that women's health care is health care. >> so is this argument that roe v. wade is going to be overturned is that hyperbole?
8:40 am
>> there's a very real likelihood that roe v. wade could be overturned in this supreme court, which would leave 25 million women, which is a third of women of reproductive age in this country without access to reproductive rights. >> some other case that comes through that restricts abortion rights. >> there are 15 cases right now that are just one step away from the supreme court and in the last seven years there have been 400 laws passed in different states that directly restrict women's access and i'm deeply concerned about this, from a public health perspective. >> your first day on the job, you got a lot of work to do it seems. >> thank you. >> i'm excited to do it. >> i can tell you. >> thank you for coming today. >> thank you. emmy winning journalist ann curry is working to reunite people with key figures from their past and she's here. a look at the new season of her show and her thoughts on the me too movement after

8:46 am
we're caught in major events like wars or humanitarian disasters there are people in our lives who we have to thank, who we might forget if someone didn't remind us. but in this particular case, dave's wife saw the series and dave saw it as well, but dave's wife is the one that pushed him to reach out to us so we followed up with the story. and he's looking for the guy. >> and he doesn't know if he's alive. >> who didn't have to save him. dave's under fire way bunch of guys. they were in a helicopter that crashed in cambodia, they're under heavy fire, they know they're not going live, it's really bad and sent out a mayday right before they hit the ground. he doesn't know if anybody heard it. back at home base, the military base, they actually felt that they cannot send another ship go get them. but one guy who's delivering heavy equipment in a chinook. you saw the size of that. you don't go rescuing people in a chinook goes and turns around to his crew and says, guys,
8:47 am
should we go get them? we just heard the call. and everybody on the crew said let's go get them. they risked their lives, came in under heavy fire and opened up the back of the chinook so these guys could run in and everyone was saved. and now dave wants to meet the man, the pilot who made that choice. >> and so did his wife to say thank you, because without that we wouldn't have the children. they had little children. they wouldn't have had the grandchildren that they have. was such an emotional episode between the two of them when they finally do connect. >> in this case you've got a story, and she's just a wonderful interviewer. >> the wife. >> and her husband served three tours of duty in vietnam. this is a woman who served just like her husband served. that's dave when he was younger in another encounter. >> the season also looks at the women's movement and immigration as well. >> yeah, the women's movement, which is interesting because we in what i think is the third wave of the women's movement. the first wave being the one that gave us the right to vote,
8:48 am
the second one that gave women opportunities. had is the one that's trying to get women past those hurdles that prevent them from reaching their full potential. and there are a lot of reasons there. so we talk about the second wave and we meet women who not only did something amazing because they had the opportunities, but one woman actually two women who actually risked their lives for the equal rights amendment and what they think of where we are today. i mean, that's really -- and also the haul kausolocaust. >> the message is don't wait. >> that's right. time ticks by and you don't know if you've run out of time. and you don't want to run out of time. but even if you do run out of time, there are people who you can reach who with want to know, right? >> that's what dave kept saying. >> speaking of time, gayle and i have a question for you about where we are in the me too movement. >> since you area last here
8:49 am
there's an a reckoning and it still continues. what do you think, anne, it will take for women to reach their full potential? >> i'm just a report sorry my opinion really doesn't matter. but i think if we look at history, what we notice is that it's actually legislation, changes in system and company policy. these are are the things that cause real change. women coming out to vote before, now we've seen the hundred women now on the house of representatives. there are 435, 34 seats in the house of representatives, last time i checked. so, you know, that's not even a fourth really. so we have a long way to go. it's a milestone, but it's about systemic change. so the civil rights act of 1964 was the ledge -- piece of legislation that forced open the doors saying you cannot discriminate against women. so first step but it's a very important one. >> as is the theories. great to have you on. >> thanks so much for having me.
