abortions if it was illegal. >> there has to be a form of punishment. >> reporter: the backlash was almost immediate. most mainstream pro life activists and politicians strongly disagree with him. >> it's never been the position that women should be punished for undergoing an abortion. >> reporter: instead, mainstream pro life advocates believe doctors and clinics who provide abortions should be punished. >> it's clear he hasn't thought very deeply about this issue. >> reporter: trump's campaign released a statement reversing his position. it says in part that if abortion would become ill legal, the doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman. some officials from new york and women's rights activists demonstrated outside of one of trump's buildings on the upper east side. >> no self-respecting woman or

6:16 pm
that's a mile away. i can use the app to do that. i just feel like it's right there within reach and i can get it. or maybe i just want to look at side tables. ernie: categories. >> it's like going into different rooms on my phone. ernie: that's creating a lot of this interest obviously. >> for people who love that shopping experience, it's a positive experience that's positively addictive. they love it. ernie: the interesting thing is that it's not just that, but also churches and other organizations looking for donations, they're not losing out. they're creating their own apps. >> you're right, ernie. a lot of people think, wow, it's so easy to sell things. that's going to hurt the charities. in fact the people used to have garage sales. they've got new options. people who want to give, it's easier to give. the churches are tapping in through the other apps. they'll come and get it. it's so much easier. less in ending up in the trash. ernie: you expect more of this to develop?
6:17 pm
i think we're really in the beginning of this fervent of innovation. we'll see more apps, maybe some consolidation, but for now more good stuff. ernie: thanks so much. time to put your spelling to the test again with this question tonight. this is a tough one. can you spell millennium? do you know how many l's and n's there are? see how people did. it's coming up. >> and new york was recently ranked near the bottom of the best cities to live in. so we were wondering how can we get back on top of that list? we find out monday. next, russ will join me with a lawsuit involving the usa women's soccer. we'll be right back after the

6:20 pm
what's going on? russ: as they said in jerry mcguire, show me the money. ernie: it is about money. russ: i have to tell you, if you ask me the u.s. women's soccer team is standing on some very solid ground right now. ernie: break it down. russ: we're talking about the world cup champs. so here really is the discrepancy. and it is all about the money. the u.s. women's soccer team generated something like $20 million more than the men's soccer team. ernie: that's a big number. russ: that's according to the u.s. soccer federations 2015 financial report. that said, the women make something like four times less. ernie: that's a huge difference. russ: breaking it down into dollars and cents. if the women play or win 20 friendly matches, each woman gets $99,000.
6:21 pm
if the men do the same thing, $263,600. ernie: there's a lot of hard information. they're calling for an investigation. what do you think is going to happen? russ: to me, they filed a complaint with the equal employment opportunities commission. they're represented by jeffrey cass ler cassler. the women are going to continue to play. i've got to believe somewhere down the line, they're going to win and get a windfall back. because it's common sense. we always say show me the money. the bottom line is who generates more. ernie: they deserve it. russ: the women are more successful. we're talking about the soccer team. the women's soccer team is more successful. and they're generating more money. so where's the beef? ernie: exactly. they're going to find the beef, i hope. russ: i believe so. ernie: let's talk about matt harvey. we were talking about his situation with the mets. they were lucky. he's okay. russ: they escaped.
6:22 pm
problems with injuries. russ: all of a sudden the yankees got -- the strength of the yankees team is supposed to be the bullpen. a weak part of the team is the starting rotation. i'm not saying michael pineda is bad, but today he got whacked, the starting pitcher. the bullpen, however, let's remember something. chapman, he's serving a 30-game suspension to start the season. yesterday miller, a key part of the bullpen, had a chip fracture in his right wrist. the bullpen looks like a weakness. ernie: joe girardi has some concerns. next, one of the most commonly
