so millions of women in the us are expected to lose access to abortions off to the supreme court struck down a ruling make it a constitutional right. conservative dominated court voted in favor of overturning the roe vs wade ruling which was passed almost 50 years ago. in 1973 political haine reports from washington dc. ah, for some this is what they've been working to for almost 50 years. as the supreme court decides, access to an abortion is no longer a constitutional right now, the states can decide and $26.00 states are likely to ban abortions in the coming weeks and months. once those words were read that the decision rovers reverse, i had to kind of this mix of relief and excitement. it's really hard to describe. but a bunch of us to start bursting into tears. i outside the supreme court pro

8:04 am
a law the guarantees abortion access. howard can see nothing without a demand. never has never will. do i think it's realistic that they will restore abortion rights if we sit home hell know, do i think if we come out and raise buddy hill, if we flood these streets and don't go home? absolutely, we can compel them to restore legal abortion on demand across the country and nothing less than that is acceptable poll showed the majority of americans didn't want this decision to happen. how much they care will determine if this is a permanent new reality in america. had to call hain al jazeera at the supreme court. well, it's been nearly 50 years since c. u. s. supreme court ruled on roe v wade and the 1973 decision established that choosing to have an abortion is a right protected by the constitution. 7 out of the 9 judges voted in favor at the time they ruled a fetus has the potential for life in the early stages of pregnancy. but it is not a person, therefore, does not have constitutional rights of its own. decades later,
8:05 am
restrictions on the procedure vary depending on state laws, but at least 13 states have what's known as triggered laws that will immediately ban or restrict abortion. after this ruling, the state of missouri has already become the 1st state to end the abortion entirely . all republican members of congress of hailing the routing has a momentous victory. we are entering 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,
8:06 am
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, latino from rosen, jordan who has moved from washington dc. there are many in his administration who argue that joe biden didn't really have any offers that he could put forward in the form of an executive order. that's something that would not have to get congressional approval. what he did reiterate is that so one, using the so called morning after drug or medicines used to induce a chemical abortion. those have been legalized by the food and drug administration . and so there was that re confirmation that using that medicine is still legal in
8:07 am
all 50 states, and that individual states cannot band the use or the purchase of those medicines. the other thing which the administration did reconfirm on friday is that people have the freedom of transit between all 50 states. no state can impose a barrier on any person who wants to travel to another state in order to obtain an abortion. but beyond that, no executive orders, certainly one matter, protecting the patients of privacy under what's known as hipaa. that is something that possibly could have been covered by an executive order. because we have already seen in one case in texas, where a woman who was trying to obtain a chemical abortion, ended up being reported and being a rusted when it turns out that that was something that the state legally could not do and be georgia, americans believe abortion should be legal,
8:08 am
but many of them are also open to restrictions. a poll conducted last month by the pew research center showed that 56 percent believe a women's stage of pregnancy should be a factor in determining if a procedure is allowed. 12 percent disagree, they believed how long a woman has been pregnant. shouldn't play a role. just say that 30 percent should say abortion should be legal in all cases. without exception. rog reynolds has been at a pro abortion rights demonstration in los angeles. california has laws that are very robust in protecting women's rights to abortion. but that didn't stop hundreds of demonstrators from gathering here in the street in front of the u. s. federal court house in downtown los angeles. they are angry, they are upset, and they are benting their fury telling stories of having been impregnated by rape and in other terrible circumstances. in this pro abortion rights crowd, people are saying it is not enough for california to be
8:09 am
a sanctuary state. when other states prohibit the procedure altogether, the governor of california gavin newsome announced that tens of millions of dollars were gonna be allocated so that women in states that ban abortion can come to california to other states where abortion is legal to receive the procedure. that is likely to put a strain on the $100.00 plus women's health clinics in california because according to researchers at the university of california, as many as $16000.00 women are expected to come to the state seeking termination of their pregnancy assigned that the supreme court decision is sending out ripples all the way across the country in states that want to ban abortions and it states that will not. we spoke to lauren bluebell cappella, the vice president of government affairs, and public advocacy at planned parenthood, advocates of ohio. she explained who will be impacted by the rule. ohio is
8:10 am
going to be devastated by this ruling. the 6 judges that are hostile to our freedom have really like to go higher with republican lead legislatures and governors in the hands of bel, it while ohio has well, abortion, it's still legal right now. in ohio. we are facing litigation around a 6 week band that was passed in 2019. this litigation is going to continue into next week. and we don't know if we will be able to provide abortion after 6 weeks. i'm depending on if the injunction is going to hold. and we know that the legislator is looking to be an abortion completely to the 8 here in 10 years. the people here who will be most impacted are already on the, on the margins. flag people indigenous folks to l g b to q. people. people who already have
8:11 am
a lack of resources because of our health care institution, to already been the most impacted by the democrats. 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 that, provide abortion to be able to make sure that patients are able to get abortions and see where it's legal. there will still be people who can't travel, who can't buy in child support, who can't leave work and therefore will have to continue pregnancy that they did not watch. since the ruling was announced, some u. s. companies have said they will help employees who need to go to other states to have abortions. disney for one will cover expenses for workers who need to travel to access family planning care. it employs 80000 people in the state of florida. the governor signed a bill banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy at alaska airlines says despite the ruling, it will continue to reimburse travel costs for employees wanting to undergo medical procedures, unavailable, in certain states. president joe biden says his administration will defend
8:12 am
a woman's right to seek an abortion in another state. if a woman lives in a state that restricts abortion, the supreme court decision does not prevent her from traveling from her home state to the state. it allows it does not prevent a doctor in that state. and that's think from treating her as the attorney general was made, claire women must, we've rein free to travel safely to another state to seek care they need. my administration will defend that bed rock, right? any state or local official hire low drives interfere with the woman's ex, exercise in her basic grade to travel. i will do everything in my power to fight that deeply on american attack. also in america, us lawmakers have passed significant gun control legislation for the 1st time in 3 decades. the democrat controlled a house of representatives voted in favor of the bill
