7:15 am
> the key remaining suspect in the brussels terror attacks has now been arrested. reports say the amad was captured alive yesterday in a terror sweep after months on the run. he's 31 years old and he was the last suspect wanted in connection with the terrorist attacks that happened back in november. officials say it is likely thatç a i beanie is also the man in the hat, the mysterious figure shown in surveillance footage leaving the scene of last on months brussels airport bombing. brenda del cot oh was decontained at a house in mexico. she faces murder charges of a killing of a dentist in texas. investigators say she was jealous because the doctor, kendra hatcher was dating her ex-boyfriend. pope francis calling on priest around the world to be less
7:16 am
compassionate and less judgmental. the new message comes from long awaited new guideline on family life in a document titled the joy of love. the more than 250-page document is the culmination of two sinning sinning ons or gatherings where they gather for challenges around the home including divorce, sex outside of marriage and compassion in the. a possible pathway for the divorced april remarried catholics to receive wholly communion. it is important to note the document makes no changes to church doctrine. teaches religious studies at villanova university joins us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. > after explaining what this new document actually says is that it doesn't change doctrine. will this have any impact on the church or is it a lot of words and no actions.
7:17 am
>> i think it will have a significant impact on the church. i think while you're right there is not a change in church doctrine here. pope francis is continuing one of the things that he's done since the beginning of his pap as i which is to signal a change to his pastorly roach. this is the year of mercy and i think this is the leading edge of how he wants to bring that mercy to family. what i compared it to is when the federal government recognizes that there is rules in place but they basically tell you, listen, make your own decisions, we won't step in. is that kind of what he's doing to allow priests in individual parishes and what have you to make some of their own decisions? >> i think he is inviting priests and couples, priests and individuals to enter into a conversation that will allow them to discern really, to figure out what the particulars of their particular situation are. it really is an attention to
7:18 am
individual people, individual couples in the difficulties and complexities of their life. he really sort of is saying, he says in one place in the document we're not reel to replace conscious. we're here to form conscious. is it a slippery slope because the response so far has been conservatists are a little bit unhappy with him because he's opened those doors. some in the lgbt and those individuals are a little unhappy because he didn't go far enough. did he create a situation where both sides are now a little bit unhappy with it? >> i think that pope francis certainly has done nothing here that he didn't do before in terms of leaving a certain amount of, i guess, you might call it what looks like wiggle room, that kind of pastor discretion that he offered that i just spoke of to a certain kind of conservative sounds like too loose. i think you're right to say
7:19 am
that. this document was never going to have a fundamental change in church doctrine with respect to t gay and lesbian relationships. so he offered -- he said people need to be treated with dignity and respect. we immediate to have deep compassion for these situations, but he wasn't going to change church doctrine for lgtb folks. he is i a howing for the conversation and that is a step in the right direction. thank you, professor whose we appreciate your time. >> thank you. > let's take a look at the weather because we have a lot of happening. some of you are already letting us know that there is some snow falling. i don't see it in the picture of the pocono mountains dave warren. a the look of the reports will be in the western suburbs. this is just the initial stage of this event, we'll call it. not a lot of snow expected p, but it could cause a little slippery roads right here right in the middle of the davol there's a the lot going on
7:20 am
today. we had this weather question sent in. hi, dave, i'm in fish town. we're getting getting ready rain to snow and the snow is heaviest. that middle of the day there, between about 11 1 # and 1 we've had heavy snow that could actually over come the fact that we have the sun angle which is higher at this time of year which could melt the snow on the road. it could be a little slippery for a brief period of time today. here's where the ultimate doppler has the rain and snow now moving into the the western suburbs. we are getting some reports of some light snow in lancaster county moving into chester
7:21 am
county. the bands of heavier rain will work its way up and swing around the area. look at how it changes direction. as the it moves north it actually starts to bring in some colder air so we can get the rain mixing with snow. here it is, the time between 11, 12 and say about 2:00 that i is where we could get the snow to accumulate on the roadways. the peak of the snow heaviest between 11 and 2 rain changes to snow and maybe even some thunder out there. this will leave some snow amounts. i'll mr. at the accumulations and the seven day forecast coming up later. > thank you, dave. medical marijuana could be prescribed to things like cancer and glaucoma, but some lawmakers would like to add another ailment to the list. coming up, what changes to new jersey's medical marijuana laws that could result in a lot more women beagle jill forth

7:30 am
would be unconscious substitution alan would be give restricted laws in the nation. it would prohibit abortions after 20 weeks. governor wolf said he would veto the measure if it does make it to his desk. bald eagle, good news back in the wilted. tri-state bird rescue and research release the bird after helping nurse it back to good health. this is the third bald eagle found in that condition. environmental control is still trying to figure out what killed five bald eagles in that county. an amazing opportunity for a delaware teen. 17 year old brittany gear has been named an ambassador for children's miracle hospital to represent her state.é-ambassadoe country to highlight the work of children's hospital. she was caused with a disorder a causes abnormalities throughout
7:31 am
her facial bones. despite her challenges she mentors other children with similar health conditions. wait until you see how weekend wendy is dressed for this event happening in camden, new jersey today. it is the camden come a con. i think we're going to call her super wendy. it's going to be a great time. these come a con conventions are always are. it's happening from 8 in the morning until 6 in the evening. is the super hero gash enough. >> enough to get through the snow in the middle of the day. there's camden all clear, but we are starting to see some radar activity not quite reaching the ground yet. it is in parts of lancaster county and certainly down south where it is rain, but it is right along 95 and to the northwest. that is the concern. really the timing looks between
7:32 am
11 and 2 when it is heaviest. that's when it can coat everything, even treated roadways. despite it happening in the middle of the day. winter weather advisories in effect because of that reason. the heaviest by around noon. it could actually start as rain and then change the snow as the intensity increases. so to this band right here between 11 and 2 where we'll start to see that accumulate. temperatures are at or above freezing in am areas. dropped blow freezing in allentown. we'll watch this closely. that could help eliminate the amount we get on surfaces. the first time mother who refused to be vaccinating for the whoop cuff and show has a heart breaking message to share with new parents. in an emotional message posted to facebook, consider met after toll said if she could turn back time she would protect herself and get the vaccination during the 28th week of pregnancy.
7:33 am
she thought she was bullet proof. her daughter got the disease and now has been in the office for three week. every hour i got to stay her, watch her going blue, give her oxygen, watch her cry, watch her having a hard time eating. she's my only child and my first. if i could turn back time, i would have protected myself. > let's talk about this. we have pedestrian doctor judy lar kin here. what's your first reaction when you hear this story. >> it's sad. it's sad that she made a choice that was ultimately a poor choice and she's now dealing with consequences of that. you know, everybody makes mistakes and i think she's recognizes that. i think she's very cure age just to come to a platform where she can share her story and hopefully influence people in
7:34 am
making a lot of better choice. there is so much information and confusion when it comes to the whole vaccine issue. betsy says my daughter still got the whoop cuff even though the vaccine. vaccine are not 100 percent and they kill millions around the world. there is no vaccine for scar lot fever. i'm sorry her daughter got scarlett fever you but a vaccine wouldn't have prevented that. they provide immunity, but it way not be perfect immunity. sometimes you can still get a disease even though you've been vaccinated. the disease may be milder. and i think the risk of not being vaccinated is still a huge risk. this comment from crystal how am of you actually read the ingredients in some of the vaccine, some i totally agree on for safety and health reasons, but some of the new ones they come out with have crazy harmful things in em this. i'm always surprised at people
7:35 am
that we as physicians and as providers are injecting their children with bad things. i think again it's a lack of information and yeah, when you read an ingredient list on anything there are sometimes words that you don't understand and chemicals that you don't understand, but vaccine are studies over and over and over and there's constantly reassessment and reevaluation and those ingredients that might be in the vaccine as a preservative are also being looked at over and over. so again our intent is never to cause harm. our intent is to take care of our patience and make sure that we give them the best care imaginable. vaccine protect most of us most of the time and that's the goal for the large population because this diseases so am of you forget are horrible. the dioceses are horrible and i think people don't remember them and a lot of the newer -- not new, on of these vaccine have been around 30 years now, but new in the sense that when i was a resident we saw kids die of
7:36 am
some of these dioceses and as a physician i have the huge respect for the diseases that we're trying to protect people from having because i did see the consequences, once you see those, you remember that of and you never forget it. if i never have to see somebody die from a vaccine prevented illness ever again that would be wonderful. > thanks for coming in. women who suffer from menstrual cramps could soon find some relief. a bill that is bee proposed for which a dr. could prescribe medical marijuana. actress whoop i goldberg is launching a line of medical marijuana products designed for women. under new jersey law doctors can only prescribe marijuana for certain conditions such as terminal cancer and multiple sclerosis. a woman takes a hidden camera

7:46 am
wouldn't have needed it. whether it be serving up treats. we have mike, ed, herman, john, onma can hand, a cousin who was at the game with us. they first met the family in houston right befjtz the championship game, brothers, fathers, nephews, all made the trip. my dad talked about the 1985 team every year. >> no one thought we could do it, but i did. it has been 31 years since villanova captured their first ncaa championship. the wine rich family had no idea what they were in for. unbelievable, what a game. how do you guys still have your voice. now millions saw the play online, but if you were one of the 70-plus at the game. arch jack no is coming up fast. i could see the shot. when it hits, pop. it's like opening a chapel pain bottle. extremers exploded on the court.
7:47 am
as exciting as the ending of the game was, something we all share and that's the most beautiful part of it. for us as a family, we were there. we have the tickets. we have everything. a grandfather to grandson. we're all sitting there. being there with family made it so much sweater. i say the greatest sporting event i've ever witnessed. > bill roar, fox 29 news. > let's take a look at your weather right now. i do have a birthday shoutout. i have a party. it's a baby. hold on. ohio and bill a, good morning, my baby asian take you is having her sixth birthday party today and she can't cancel. please don't let it snow. >> i hope it's inside. come on, can we help out? just make sure it's inside and the roads should be okay. but the timing looks like about # 1 to 1 is when we'll see the
7:48 am
heaviest rain and even the rain change into snow. here's where it is right now, it's working its way into the area. that's not the only thing that's happening here this weekend. here's another question. i'm completing my eagle scout project to help organize the library. i heard there might be snow. we whether or expecting a the-volunteers, i was wondering what the weather will be like. >> a lot of work that goes into that. some snow right until about 1:00. this is the timing that will go hour by hour and we'll show you when will be the heaviest snow. between 10 and 2. it will start as rain and then mix over to snow. this is the band of this heavy presip. as it comes down a little heavier. you see the rain changing over to snow. that happens when the storms get very intense. they can bring the cold air in
7:49 am
and drop the temperatures. it's between 11 and 12 where this is heaviest. we have this high sun angle. if it snows light enough, it could keep the roadways just wet. you can over come that as it's intense between 11 and 2, but after 2:00 things will improve. maybe even some thunder is what you could hear midday. these storms really intensify. it will continue to come down as light snow, but it will wind down after about 8:00 tonight and could end briefly as a period of snow. but then we're talking about the very cold air coming in. exactly what to expect, less than an inch in this area, but the north and western suburbs could see two to four on untreated surfaces. maybe if it's intense enough we could get an area of three to five inches of snow. freezing temperatures tomorrow morning with a loaf 27.
7:50 am
it could be very slippery on the wet roadways. more rain comes in monday for opening day. 56-degrees on tuesday and wednesday with some more rain. by thursday and friday we're looking at sunshine, but some cooler temperatures, especially in the morning. > dave, thanks. you know if you have a wedding in your life we have some of our viewers who are having wednesdayings on this day. the cost is getting really expensive and continues to climb. how about this one, more than $32,000. > that's crazy. >> who is fighting the bill for that. coming up the results of a new survey, newly wednesdays may not be pulling their own weight. a woman upset with her doctor because she put a recording device in her hair before surgery. what she heard. what the doctors allegedly said about her and what little options she may have. wow. take a look on the outside. not too bad right now.

listen. the story we've been talking about all morning, a woman decided to tape record her story and was shocked some of the things her surgeon and others in the operating room said about her while she was sedated. ethyl easter says the disrupt tone about her meeting about a hernia operation was what led h her to tape her surgery. shes what able to hide the recording under her hair. he made disparaging remarks about her body. one staff member told the anesthesiologist. it was meet precious meet priest was i was a this black woman. the spokes woman for the hospital declined comments. the hospital said it used this opportunity to remind the or staff and physicians to be mindful of their comments at all times. is that enough to have any legal
8:14 am
rights when we're undergoing surgery? attorney heater hanson joining us to break it down as she always down. we've now heard this story, got some interesting opinions on it. the woman is upset. but does she have any legal resource. >> what are her damages? she's upset, that's really a stretch to say month you now deserve money for being upset. she did some things that in some states are illegal. in pennsylvania you can't tape someone unless you have their consent. in my mind she should not bring something that is not sterile. she could be endangering someone. the relationship between a dr. and patient is a special one. no one wants that when they're in the operating room. doctors and nurses are human beings and sometimes they say things that they should not say, but some of us say when we are having a bad day.
8:15 am
i saturday there and listeninged to the recording, if i heard that when my mother or someone was in surgery i would have lost my mind,. is it appropriate, no, do you want that type of energy surrounding you when you're under anesthesia, absolutely not. that said you can't be sneaking things into the operating room. in addition, and one of the interesting things is she apparently was very challenging for the doctor preoperatively. that doesn't mean that you're allowed to speak that way at the patient. at the same time patience should be aware that doctors are human beings and challenging patience actually lead them to make more misdiagnoses. if you're a patient you want to be the most pleasant patient you can be and if you're a dr. remember that the person who is there that you are operating on is a human being with brothers, sisters, sons who would be very upset if you heard them speaking about that way. she discovered on the recording is that they may have ignored
8:16 am
one of the things that she said she was allergic to and given her medication that they should have been aware of. she said they were ignored because they were too busy having fun at her expense. you have to have some physical damage. if she were to sustain a rash. if she were to get sick because she took the medication, then arguably she would have a case. just because someone wrong you -- no harm, no foul is what it comes down to. finally, you touched on this, people who are thinking about doing in this pennsylvania, no. event in the operating room, not only are you endanger yourself when you bring something that is not sterile in. you're endangering anyone else. if she brought that device into the recovery room, there's other patience there. now you're violating their privacy. it's a dangerous thing to do. i would not be doing it.

intensifies we start to see some colder air come in so the rain will change over to snow. that will be heavy snow for a order p of time. between 2 noon and 2:00 is when it's-h yes. even though these late season storms we get the sunrise, the higher sun angle melting the snow on the roads, the it could accumulate on the road. maybe a rumble of thunder, especially south jersey and delaware. this is about 2:00. it will start to clear out after the 8:00 tonight. you see it still coming down as snow, swinging around low and it moves off the coast and ends by about 7 or 8:00 tonight. but p once it ends, the wind picks up just a bit and the cold air comes in. so we could see some cold temperatures tomorrow. some slippery roads even tomorrow morning. less than an inch on grassy surfaces. a little more where we have a about it more snow between 2 and 4. not only the roadways, just
8:21 am
untreated surfaces. a good p amount of snow in lancaster and parts of burke county. that is what we're dealing with today. temperatures are blow freezing in some suburbs right now. they'll be out of blow freezing tomorrow morning pretty much every where. the freeze warning is not in effect in allentown because the growing season has not started just yet. we'll keep a close eye on the temperatures because that will make the roadways just wet. they have dropped down just a bit like hazel ton and mount pocono into the upper 20s. it could drop a few degrees once the snow picks up. mid 40s to the south. actually picking up there. we're dealing with mostly rain across coastal sections across new jersey and delaware. the seven day forecast, a cold start tomorrow. showers on tuesday, some rain on wednesday and a a little bit better on thursday and friday. with temperatures at 60-degrees. > at least we have 60 at the end of that forecast. are you one of those people who

western suburbs right now. it will continue here, but the winter weather advisory in effect until about this evening. so we are seeing that rain and snow coming down. what it means for us is about ten to noon is when it's heaviest and that's when we'll see it start to accumulate on the roadway and even change over he when the rain is heaviest. areas in new jersey could even see a little bit of snow. temperatures we'll keep a close eye on. they are into the 30s and 40s right now. only climbing into the upper 30s as the snow continues 20 come down. all clear right now, and that will change not only here but in your area. i could still hear you through the window there. thanks so much. this may be hard to believe considering the weather that davis talking about, but summer is just two months away. don't let your kids be slackers. we have some tips to help them

you can barely make it out in the pocono mountains. it is starting to reach the ground and it will intensify. the time to much what is between 11 and 2. if it's heavy enough despite the sun, it could still accumulate on the roadways. the band now starting to swing north. going to p stop right over philadelphia from east to west and it will stay there for a while. it's moving up and working its way up through south jersey. heaviest around noon. the band of heavy snow and rain continues to push north and then just stops. as it comes down a little heavier we could see the rain mixing with show. still heavy snow coming up along i95 and to the northern and western suburbs where it all started as snow. between 11 and 2:00 p.m., rain changes to snow. after 2:00 as it lightance up a little bit we could start to see
8:49 am
the roads improve a little bit because the sun is working its way through the clouds and could melt the snow on the roadways. watch the roads between 11 and 2. if you have to do anything, you might want to plan around the times. the snow mixes with a little bit of rain and ends by about 7 or 8:00. it's ending before sunset so the roadway is just wet. watch for a freeze and icy spots tomorrow morning because the temperature will get a lot colder overnight and will be down or blow freezing tomorrow. more to the north and western suburbs. i think where that band sets up you could one or two areas, maybe chester and parts of lancaster county getting three to five inches on grassy surfaces. the roadway should be a slushy mess here by this afternoon. a freeze warning at or blow 32-degrees. tomorrow morning the warning be in effect for lancaster, but the growing season not underway. we have issued if the growing season is currently underway. 30s and 40ss, the temperatures
8:50 am
are above freezing. it could help the roads just a little bit. blow freezing overnight tonight. 40s to the south, a little warmer there. getting some warmer air coming up from the south. opening day on monday. there's some light rain in the forecast, just some light rain, not heavy rain or snow. temperature up to 57 in the afternoon. a little warmer on tuesday and wednesday, upper 50s, lowe's about 50 wednesday morning. nice end to the weekend, just a little cool in the morning, but by the afternoon pretty comfortable, 60s with sunshine. > it was 70 on christmas, we could take 60s in april. > moving to sports, the flyers doing what they can to make the playoffs. they're not making things easy after dropping their last three. flyers are fighting to earn the last wild card position. people are hopeful and sending in their pictures in all their flyers gear. all flyered up. the good newses is this.
8:51 am
they control their own destiny. two games left. if the flyers win both, they're in. the campaign starts next week. that's the most important fact out of all of this right now. there's a number of scenarios that could eliminate the flyers. if they win these last two games they have a lot to play for. they do want to play the spoiler row. that would put the flyers at 96 points. boston who trail the flyers would not be able to get to the 96 points. they're not really playing well enough to make any sort of impact. >> most sports i would agree with you, but hockey is different. on a shootout in the last game of the season. they lost, but hockey is a whole different ball game.
8:52 am
definitely a different scenario. i got to get your opinion on what happened this week. the sixers, they had the game last night, alan i ever son, a lot to talk about that. love ai. that was already going to happen. here's what i know. sam hinge i was the right man for the job to tear it down. three years of tanking, just this season alone, ten wins. it's professional sports. you have to fill the 146 court side seats. after a three year of the tank you got to give your season ticket holders a little something new. tank i was the right man for the job. when he took over the sixers didn't have a first round pick in the upcoming draft. they could get four in this upcoming draft, plus 50 million of cap space. would a player want to come here, i don't know. but he did set them up for
8:53 am
succeed in the future. fyi i could have destroyed the team. opening day, phillies in their opening season didn't even get a win. >> that noise definitely describes the phillies right now an absolutely tough start. they had some good starting pitching, but the bull pen came back to bite them in the back side. i think that might be the theme for the 2016 campaign. not a lot to get excited. remember, vague as had these guys at 66 wins. before we get out of here, if i could, let's talk about a first place team, the philadelphia union. that's right, the union won last night up there in chester. first place, jim curtain got the boys playing hard. union and nova, that's all we need. thanks so much, we really appreciate it. we'll be right back. running out of time. we'll see you in a minute.

8:57 am
this so it didn't feel rustic. it felt modern, fresh, new, more like a contact pan a. we love the fire pit. we love the hammock and then we also have this awesome diy raised garden over this that we're using for plants and herself that we felt was a great touch, especially if you have dogs or little kids. they can't get in there and play. we love the whole feel and we love the pop of green against the black and white against the gray. this is absolutely amazing. i love this wonderful modern urban space that you've created. this is a fabulous around the house. thank you. for more information you can ask questions and use fox 29 good day. it's a wrap. it's a quick shout out happy birth did i to you, bob. have a great day on fox 29 and we will see you tomorrow
