12:02 am
crickets slung its form happen. ah, hello and welcome to this news. as we begin in the united states why millions of women are expected to lose access to abortions. after the supreme court struck down the ruling making it a constitutional right ah, this was the scene among anti abortion demonstrators in washington when the decision came through. a conservative dominated court voted 6 to 3 in favor of over turning roe vs wade, which was passed almost 50 years ago. in 1973, the former vice president might pens, said the right to abortion had been consigned to the ash heap of history. and republican members of congress are hailing the ruling as a momentous victory. we are entering
12:03 am
a new era of freedom of freedom for the unborn, and i am proud to have always been on the side of pro my pro life brothers and sisters who stand here with me to day and all across america. we always knew we would realize true freedom for all americans. the people of one of victory, the right to life has been vindicated. the voiceless will finally have a voice. this great nation canal live up to its core principle that all are created equal, not born equal, created equal, the reaction to this principle decision by the court. it must be peaceful. and the d. o. j must step up to protect our justices their families, churches, and pro life pregnancy centers from unprovoked violence. majority of
12:04 am
demonstrations outside the u. s. supreme court support abortion rights. oh wow. and there was massive disappointment for them when the ruling of a turning roe vs wade. was announced in a number of states, bonds on abortion will now come into force immediately senior members of the ruling democratic party have also condemned the decision. such a contradiction yesterday, the say the states and cannot make laws governing the constitutional right to bear arms. and to day they're saying the exact reverse that the states can overturn a constitutional right for 50 years. the constitutional right for want having the right to choose. the hypocrisy is raging, but the harm is endless. and you,
12:05 am
as president joe biden has condemned the supreme court ruling as well and explained how he'll help women impacted by the decision. it's a realization of extreme ideology and a tragic error by the supreme court. in my view, as attorney general was made, clear, women must weave rein free to travel safely to another state. to seek clear the need. my administration will defend that bed rock right. then a state or local official, high or low drives interfere with the womans ex, exercise, or basic growth to travel. i will do everything in my power to fight that deeply on american attack. and the ao says the ruling was an ounce. some u. s. companies have said they'll help employees who need to go to on the states to have abortions. disney, for example, if ang, it'll cover expenses for walkers. you need to travel to access family planning care from employees, 80000 people in the state of florida. when the governor signed a bill banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, alaska airlines says,
12:06 am
despite the ruling it will continue to reimburse travel costs for its employees wanting to undergo medical procedures on available in certain states. and then companies like amazon, an app will also be reimbursing employees or have to travel out of state to legally access abortions as well. so let's go live now to party kind his outside the u. s. supreme court and certainly tensions and emotions have been running high there. what's the scene like now? i can tell you the vast majority, i think probably pretty much everyone here right now is for is a pro abortion rights, a 1010. when this decision came out local time, there were a lot of anti abortion rights activists in some pro abortion rights activists. but since the wordly went out, that the decision was made that it hadn't changed merely version. the roby wade was in fact, completely overturned, receive a steady flow of people. i'd say there's probably about a 1000 people here now, respectively. many more as the evening goes on. just to give you
12:07 am
a little bit of an understanding of what happened in this case, mississippi had wanted to ban abortions after 15 weeks. they didn't ask the court to overturn roe v wade. these justices decided to overturn roe v wade, and that itself is very controversial. because of the reason they were able to do that, let's not forget, just anthony antonin scalia passed away about a year into bud president obama's last term. the republican leader of the senate refused to give his candidate a hearing, saying the election would decide the next. the next judge justice to then, which is 7 a month till the election. i do, excuse me, justice ruth bader ginsburg died and then what we saw is the republicans changed their i their idea about the timeline limits. and they went ahead and got justice amy, coney, barrett on the court. and it was those moves that allowed these 3 justices to go with the other conservatives to take this really unprecedented step. and it is
12:08 am
fairly unprecedented. there's been maybe one or 2 times in the history of the country where the supreme court basically said that decision was just simply wrong . so we're not going to follow it any more. also worth pointing out. and part of why the people behind me are so very angry is to get the job they had to get confirmed by the senate and across the board. they all said that rosie wade was settled law. and that they wouldn't necessarily look to overturn roe v wade, but that has in fact exactly what they've done. so what does this mean? well, 13 states of trigger laws in the coming days stage and outlaw abortion. we believe about $26.00 states are going to outlaw abortion in the coming months. and here's where it's going to get tricky. some of these states don't allow for an exemption, not for right now. for instance, not a mother's life is in jeopardy, or if there's an abnormality in the fetus. so all of that is going to have to be decided right now americans are just coming to terms of the fact that roe v wade is over and it really had a lot more to do than just about worship. abortion
12:09 am
wasn't always controversial in the united states. it was legal when the country was founded up until what they called the quickening when the mother could feel the baby around 4 months. but by the 18 eighty's abortion was outlawed across most of the country. it stay that way until the sixty's, as the woman's movement came into force, pressure mounted on the court. first it's struct at a law, the ban, so in birth control to married couples. then later for unmarried adults, family planning information services. then murphy way to 973, change the lives of millions of women, allowing all abortions in the 1st trimester and some restrictions in the 2nd. a decision reaffirmed several times since by the supreme court, before the decision on ro, wealthy women could travel out of the country for the procedure. but for lower income women getting an abortion often meant going to unsafe clinics. in 196517
12:10 am
percent of all dust due to pregnancy were the results of illegal abortions. and after row there was an economic impact. women could choose to stay in the workforce . they could start, for example, on an advanced education program. they could get accepted in just such a program because a school would say, i find incredible that this woman will actually complete her education and not drop out because she'll be able to plan it, allow women to invest in careers as opposed to just jobs because they they can follow paths that involved investment rather than being viewed by employers as people who are sort of here today gone tomorrow. studies have shown that women who leave their job to care for their child even for a short time rarely recoup their earning potential. and many can afford child care in this country, which now cost an average of $14000.00 per year. there are some economic studies that say there is also a link between legal abortions and a drop in crime. this reversal will now mean half of the women in the country are
12:11 am
a bell to find out what my was like before. roe v wade a half a century ago, especially for women with little means have a child. they don't want or risk their lives to legally get an abortion and of course, this doesn't just impact women in the country, but men will be impacted as well. i want to introduce you to caspar della ruth. he is a just graduated graduate student in public policy. you live in washington, d. c. now, but what made you decide to come here today? i think i really want to, sir, and i'm for my friends. are both women and people with tutor says to i think it's such an important day and we all need to show up and show out for a product of rights. one of the reasons, one of the things that the way the court made this argument is they basically use the same argument that they use to ensure same sex marriage, access to contribute contraception. you are
12:12 am
a part of that community. how concerned are you? i'm very concerned i think are definitely going to come for you know, algebra 2 right next door to come for on reproductive rights contraception. odds you know, interested in terms, sorry, interracial marriages that's on the line, which is also why we need to know your support today. people say you need to come a more than once. you're going to be back. yes, absolutely. yeah. thank you so much for taking the time to talk with us. i appreciate it. and it is another concern for the people here because some of these state law legislatures have taken what some recall extreme steps, basically saying that they can't they can't use certain kinds of contraception because that would violate this new rule. so the states are going to really have to figure out what they're doing and then the courts in those states are after figure out if they're constitutional. but right now, what the supreme court has done is left it wide open for them to say no, no it's,
12:13 am
there's no constitutional right, an assay box or an international audience at that is trying to understand the story . can you explain why this is such a polarizing issue? there in the u. s. why there is such sharply conflicting views on both sides of the debate? a lot of it had the a lot of the movement to get rid of robi way came from a the religious community that catholic church had a lot to do with that. and then it became a republican issue. so it really has been a driving force for republican voters, not so much for democratic voters because the right was there, it was constitutionally guaranteed. so one of the questions now and joe biden is said, if you want to change this, you have to show up and vote. the question is, is this kind of energy going to be able to carry them to november when the mid terms are up? when he is, has the potential to lose seats in the house, lou seats in the senate, there is
12:14 am
a bill that would make abortion accessible for every one in the country. it just doesn't have the votes to pass in the senate right now. the problem for joe biden is his poll numbers aren't friendly, low gas prices are incredibly high. it's really, really expensive to shop at the grocery store. and so people tend to punish the president for that. now, as i mentioned, democrats, this hasn't been a driving issue for them because they had the right now that they don't, will it become their number one issue? well, that's what the democrats are hoping. all right, thank you so much. as you're as pat time reporting to us from washington with our, our protested demonstrations following this unprecedented, his party was saying supreme court ruling. well, a majority of americans believe that abortion should be legal and many also open to restrictions. a recent poll by the pew research center, so it shows at 56 percent. but if a woman's stage of pregnancy should be the deciding factor in whether or not the procedure is allowed to go ahead, 12 percent disagree. they believe how long
12:15 am
a woman has been pregnant shouldn't play a role just of a 30 percent, say abortion should be legal in all cases. and that should be without exception. ok, well i don't know that we were just there and you know, i can just describe seen that for us. what have you been hearing from members of the public who are turning out to demonstrate today? well he's here, we're hearing anger anger at the supreme court decision, even though it was expected because as we been mentioning, the decision was leaked a few weeks ago. there is still a lot of anger that this day has finally found. the reality is really sitting in here. this is a protest right now in union square and new york city, i'm going to have you walk up this direction just a little bit to get a scene of what it's like, i'm sorry about that. hundreds of people here right now, and this is just the 1st of what is going to be several protests here in new york
12:16 am
city over the next couple hours an hour from now. there will be another one that it's expected to be even larger in union square park, just about a kilometer to, to the south, the where i'm at now. this is one that's happening now. there's another one happening at 8 pm here, local time, various groups from all sorts of different organizations and, and what have you have been needing to get their voices heard here. and what everyone keeps telling us is the same thing, is that they feel that they have to get out and protest so that their voices are heard out on the street. you can see that it's a lot of young people, but also we have middle aged people as well. people from different races, new cities and backgrounds. it is new york city, clearly the most diverse city in the united states. so it's not surprising to see that, but you really do see a lot of young faces here, and it really shows you how this is an issue that is really galvanizing young people here. now,
12:17 am
new york state and new york city are places where abortion is very much legal and the mayor of new york city, eric adams said that he will protect that right here in new york city for people that want to get an abortion good to go ahead and safely continue to do that, but clearly one of many protests we planned throughout the evening here in new york city. all right, thank you very much. will that is for me, oak. gabriel is on the with the reaction there to the supreme court ruling. now, governors, the governors of 3 us west coast state, washington, oregon in california, and will put out a joint video statement condemning this decision and offering to help women effective by reproductive freedoms are under attack. red states and republican stat courts have rolled back the rights of americans today, the supreme court ruling to overturn roe vs wade. more than half the states and united states ban abortion outright or severely restrict access to abortion
12:18 am
services. that's why california oregon and washington are building the west coast protect patients access to we would work with legislators with our providers, with a patient advocate. we will continue to protect patients from any state who come to our states or worship here. so let's go live now to rob reynolds, his in los angeles, where of course we hearing about said california moving to strengthen abortion right. how is this decision being received while you are? well, many people are very outrage over this decision, and i'm standing right now across the street from the federal courthouse in downtown los angeles. there's a crowd of several 100 people here who are expressing their outrage and their dismay over the supreme court decision. let me just step out of the way. you get
12:19 am
a little bit of a view of what this the crowd looks like. you're mostly young people, men and women, are many people who are a saying that this is a, an affront to women, all over the united states and many people, all. so talking about how the, the next item on the agenda as it were for the, the conservative supreme court majority might be a, it legislation that it's rides gay rights l, g, b, g, t, u rights as well as some of the same sex marriage. so that is of concern there you just heard of the governor of california talk about how his state is going to try to support people who come here uh for of for terminating their pregnancies. and the state itself has very robust protections. the
12:20 am
right to abortion is enshrined in law and newsome wants to put it in the constitution of the state of california as well. um abortion is available on demand here and it is also ah, paid for by most insurance plans. but the, although there are over 100 plant heritage clinics in california, that may not be enough because people here are expecting an influx of women from states like oklahoma or texas, where pete, where abortion is going to be ban and criminalize, in fact, a study by the university southern california predicted $16000.00 additional women would come to the state of california, seeking abortion services. 10000 of those in southern california alone. so you could see that today's decision, unprecedented decision overturning. 49 years of subtle law by the supreme court is having ramifications and ripples far beyond those states where women are going to
12:21 am
be prohibited from having abortion. mariam. all right, thank you very much for the reaction from los angeles, rob reynolds. so i'm now joined by lauren bloomfield, copeland, his vice president of government affairs and public advocacy at planned parenthood . advocates of i am just been hearing about states that will move to impose trigger bands and then obviously other states, a democrat lead states that want to try and preserve and strengthen abortion rights . how is this ruling going to affect a higher thank you so much for having me. ohio is going to be devastated by this ruling. these 6 judges that are hostile to our freedoms have really left states like ohio with republican lead legislatures and governors. i. in the hands of zealots, while ohio has well, abortion is still legal right now. in ohio. we are facing litigation around
12:22 am
a 6 week ban that was passed in 2019. this litigation is going to continue on into next week. and we don't know if we will be able to provide abortion after 6 weeks. i'm depending on if this injunction is going to hold. and we know that the legislature is looking to ban abortion completely. so the 8 here continues and foot people. it might not be familiar with the work of planned parenthood. what does that mean for your organization and how it changed the way you you work and you function? absolutely. planned parenthood is the largest reproductive health care provider in united states. we have 21 health centers here in ohio, 3 of which provide abortion. we also work with independent abortion providers. so we provide abortion, we advocate or abortion, or reproductive healthcare. and we also are the largest sex education providers that this decision believe is a yes i go to say, did the decision come to a as
12:23 am
a shock? you always have as a leak, there are indications that was, it was going to happen. it was expected, but what was your, what was your initial response when you heard the news? even though the decision was expected, we saw the leak. we've seen the writing on the wall. we are devastated. we are heartbroken, but we are prepared. we are defiant and we are going to fight for access to abortion here in ohio and across the country. which communities are going to be most affected by this. we hear that it could result in 60000 both the urine among women who can't get an abortion which communities which ethnic groups will be most impacted. the people here who will be most impacted are already on the up on the margins like people, indigenous folks, algae be to q people. people who are already have a lack of resources because of our health care institutions who have already been
12:24 am
the most impacted by the pandemic. they are going to be most impacted by abortion bands. we already see that because some folks, even though we are working really hard with states that provide abortion to be able to make sure that patients are able to get abortion in states where it's legal, there will still be people who can't travel who can't fly in child support who can't leave work and therefore will have to continue pregnancies that they did not want. lauren at global copeland, vice president of government phase and advocacy at planned parenthood. thank you very much. thank you. us all makers have passed the most significant gone safety legislation in 3 decades, democrat controlled house of representatives voted for the bill a day after it was passed by the senate now been sent to prison. joe biden, to be sign into law. gun control has long been a device of issue and other device of issue in the united states. many previous attempts failing. you would then use our lie from london much more still to bring
