12:00 pm
learn how abbvie could help you save on botox®. >> from the bay news station, you're watching kron. at noon. >> now woodrow gone. let's be very clear. the health and life of women of this nation now at risk. >> now at noon, one of the most consequential days in recent american history. a landmark ruling by the supreme court overturns roe v wade sparking protests and celebrations across the nation. thanks for joining us on kron. 4 news at noon. i'm stephanie lynn with today's
12:01 pm
ruling, the high court eliminates a woman's federal constitutional right to an abortion. now individual states will decide on the issue. our washington correspondent trevor shirley starts our team coverage from outside the supreme court. >> well, obviously, we didn't know until this morning, which way the court was going to go on this decision. we now know its final ruling, but leading up to this point, a lot of people both here in washington and across the country at least had an inkling of which way the court was leaning. not only based on that leaked draft that published several months ago, but also just based on the fact of the ideological break down those 3 justices in particular that were pointed under former president donald trump. the crowd out here very loud, very animated, very energized, largely peaceful. the police presence here has been very strong. they were anticipating this decision coming out for the past several weeks. the court itself is still surrounded by that fencing and got a lot of officers, both from the court, the local
12:02 pm
police, capitol police are out there trying to maintain some sense of order. but as i mentioned, the crowd largely peaceful despite being very animated, very emotional over this decision. obviously, a developing story will be interesting to see over the next couple weeks, how both parties pivot to this reaction. democrats are saying this issue is on the ballot coming up this fall in the midterms and beyond that, republicans are also going to have a challenge because this is a goal that they've wanted to get. now they've achieved it. the question for republicans is how do they keep this issue front and center for their own days to keep them engaged in the political process? i think that something's going to be really interesting to see play out over the next few months. >> today's historic supreme court decision is a victory for the sanctity of life. it will save countless innocent children. >> the court has done what he's never done before expressly take away a constitutional right. that is so fundamental. so many americans, they're already been recognized. the court's
12:03 pm
decision to do so will have real and immediate consequences. state laws banning abortion. are automatically taking effect today. jeopardizing the health of millions of women. some without exceptions. >> and we are expecting to see more demonstrations by the court later on today and throughout the coming days. obviously, security will maintain a heightened presence over the next few weeks reporting in washington. i'm trevor shirley. >> in the ruling exposed a deep divide over the abortion issue across our country. 13 states already passing legislation banning abortion this month, including many of the southern states, including texas, louisiana and kentucky, alabama and georgia. also likely to pass band soon. today we heard from governors of oregon, washington and right here in california responding to today's landmark decision, they announced their commitment to defend access to reproductive health care. and
12:04 pm
local leaders are also reacting to the supreme court's decision. this morning we spoke with san francisco congresswoman jackie spear. she rrised concerns over the possibility of a nationwide ban on abortion. she also pointed out what she sees as inconsistent season, how the court rated 2 major topics in american politics. >> if you go back and look at the constitution, these are the supreme court justices that are called the so, you know, abortion isn't in the constitution. so therefore. >> you can't have that right? well, you know, in the constitution talked about guns, they were talking about muskets. >> so maybe what if you want to go there them? let's allow muskets but no longer assault weapons and handguns. >> and we'll continue to bring you the latest reactions from our local lawmakers all day, including from governor gavin newsom. he's expected to speak later today and that's going to come up on the kron. 4 news at 3. so stay tuned. and we also want to bring you some
12:05 pm
perspective on all of this from our local legal experts right now. we're joined by uc hastings professor rory little, thank you so much for joining us. professor. >> thank you. happy to be here. you are not so happy with this opinion. >> yeah, it's a sentiment that we're hearing from a lot of folks this morning. now it you followed and written about supreme court cases for more than a decade of did this morning's decision surprise you at all? >> well, you know, we know that this leaked opinion. we knew where the court was going. we also know where the 3 trump appointees were likely to be on this. so in that sense, it's not surprising. what is surprising is how disruptive this is to the american culture and how really unprecedented it is. the court here right has to be deeply rooted in history and tradition and abortion is not. but you know, what else was deeply rooted in our history tradition and the 19th century was race discrimination. and today we all agree that brown
12:06 pm
versus board of education was correctly decided and you can't discriminate basis of race. they should have done the same thing here. deep history and tradition is wrong and that's where they're wrong. in this case. >> in a big concern from some lawmakers and pro-choice is the long-term legal implications of this. the president's that this could set. how likely do you see this impacting same marriage access to contraception so forth? >> well, you know, the majority opinion says, oh, this doesn't threaten anything but abortion. don't worry about any other right. but justice thomas write a separate opinion, which is truly frightening and he says, look, we should reconsider everything. we should reconsider same marriage. we should reconsider the access to birth control. we should reconsider conduct between consenting adults. we should reconsider the right to refuse medical treatment. if you want to, which affects a lot of people in their senior lives
12:07 pm
the idea that this opinion doesn't threaten those rights is just hypocrisy, which is something to dissent, says. and it shows you how important the election is going to be in 2024. because the presidential picks for the supreme court really, really have changed this. if merrick garland had been confirmed at the end of the obama administration, we would have a different majority today. >> and you just touched on this, but i'd like to go into it a little bit further here. we heard from some lawmakers who said that they'd like to see at some point all states go pro life. so what are the chances of that happening from a legal perspective >> well, justice kavanaugh, fortunately in this case today says in a separate opinion, this does not outlaw abortion because states have the right to choose to favor abortion. use me. so a state like california, we'll be able doris abortion, but you're going to see some litigation around the country about this traveling across state lines with some of the antiabortion
12:08 pm
states are now going to say is a criminal conduct. going to see more litigation on that. but i don't think the current majority would allow than outlawing abortion on some federal level state by state. you're going to see that and women who can't afford to fly to another state to get an abortion are going to be hurt by this decision very dramatically. >> we know that the san francisco city attorney's office, they that they're offering free legal services for when in full it be coming from out of states potentially fleeing criminal prosecution for trying to seek abortion in the state of california under this ruling. can women be criminally prosecuted for trying to seek abortion services in other states? >> well, it looks like it. i mean, texas has sort of crazy law which the supreme court did not stopped from going into effect back in december. there are states that are
12:09 pm
going to make it a crime for doctors to perform for other people to help for, you know, a taxi driver to drive you to the abortion clinic. it is frightening what states will try to do now, whether the constitution would allow a criminal prosecution for conduct that is not criminal it in any in most states. you know, right now we have a divergence of criminal law in various states and some things that are legal in california aren't legal in alabama. so i suppose it's not out of question. i do think california's effort to provide a safe haven for women who are trying to pursue a right to abortion will be upheld. but i think you're going to see years of litigation coming out of this decision today, which is which is really bad effect of overruling a precedent that has stood firmly for the last half century. >> and what do you seeing? i mean, do you think we'll be hearing from the supreme court in the coming days on this and what's the reaction going to be from perhaps congress at this point?
12:10 pm
>> well, we'll see what congress says that the supreme court will keep its now shot. they have 7 cases left to decide they'll decide the next week and then they'll go away for the summer and we won't for the summer and we won't hear anything from you know, then leave the field you know, it's a partisan debate right now. there is legislation kamala harris has sponsored legislation as a senator. and as the vice president create a federal constitutionally protected right to abortion. whether there were 50 votes for that, whether it can survive a filibuster, whether we should even have the filibuster. these are all questions still up in the air. >> okay. you see hasting, professor, rory little, thank you so much for your time and insight on this this afternoon. all right. we're going to move now to some breaking news from washington, d.c., the u.s. house just passed the first new gun safety legislation in decades. the bill and han says
12:11 pm
background checks for people under the age of 21 wanting to buy a gun. it also prevents convicted domestic abusers from purchasing guns regardless of whether they were married to their victim. the bill provides money to states to help enhance red flag laws and provides money for mental health services and keeping school campuses safe. the senate passed the measure just last night with 15 republicans crossing the aisle to move this bill forward. president biden saying he will sign it as soon as it arrives at his desk. lots more to get to today after the break. we have a look at the latest on our local wildfires. >>tand we're continuing to follow the impact of the supreme court's abortion ruling throughout the hour. more perspective from political expert straight ahead. and we're tracking hot temperatures for our warmest inland valleys yet again today, widespread low to mid-nineties. more details on that a
12:12 pm
12:13 pm
12:14 pm
>> california. >> oregon and washington are building the west coast offense, protect patients. access we work with their legislators with our providers, with the patient advocates. we will continue to protect patients from any state to come to our states. >> we're here and doctors, nurses and medical professionals working to support patients. secret. we productive can states.
12:15 pm
>> a strong response to today's supreme court ruling. governor newsom joining forces with governor kate brown of oregon and jay inslee of washington to form what they're calling a multi-state commitment to protect abortion rights. the group says they will defend access to reproductive health care, including abortion and contraceptives. they also protect patients, they say and doctors from efforts by other states. any other state which may go after those trying to seek an abortion. and joining us now for more perspective on all of this is donna crane. she's a political science lecturer at san jose state university. thank you so much for being with us today. all right. let's start with commitment from the saying that he's going to protect people seeking abortion. now, will other states really have the ability to target people in california trying to seek or provide abortions.
12:16 pm
>> well, this is unknown in my opinion, it would be unconstitutional for another state to try to prevent one of its own citizens from crossing state lines to get the service is perfectly legal in another state. right. imagine you are traveling from a state that banned gambling, for instance, and you wanted to go to las that your home state can't prevent you from going to las vegas. so it seems logical and legal that the state wouldn't be able to block it from doing that. but some anti-abortion states have said that's part of the next generation of restrictions that they're going to look to impose on their own citizens. so i think that's what governor newsom is leon brown are looking to head off with today's announcement. >> what other sorts of moves that you anticipate local lawmakers here in the bay area making in response to this morning's decision. >> well, i think they're going
12:17 pm
to look to do a couple of things. first of all, they're going they're going to look to shore up our own state protections for reproductive freedom. and, you know, i think that's but let's be clear that will not protect us from any action that the federal government takes either congress or hostile executive branch takes against reproductive freedom, california. still part of the united states. we won't be immune from that. if congress gets in on this act. now that roe v wade has rollback, i think also some state and local officials might look to shore up funding for doctors, clinics procedures for women who come in to our state from other states where it's illegal and unsafe. i think shoring up the network of providers, clinics, health centers, hospitals, making sure that that there are enough provtders enough appointments to accommodate women in more than half of the states where abortion within weeks, if not days is about to
12:18 pm
become illegal and and this morning we also heard from president biden. he said that he's going to take whatever action he can within his power in response to this rule. he also called on congress to act. but he also seemed to imply he's not expecting congress to be able to do much because of the situation in the senate. so >> what sort of turnout and messaging are you expecting as we head closer to that election season? >> this is very so on one point particular, let me say that there's actually very little congress can do what this moment, even if congress had the votes and it passed the most fulsome pro choice law, you could imagine we're staring down the barrel of a supreme court that just overturn roe. the supreme court would strike that new law down. so there's very little congress can do. the supreme court is called supreme for and moving on to the elections. i would say when abortion rights are on the ballot that tends to favor
12:19 pm
but mid term elections tend to disfavor of the party that's in the white house. so it will be interesting to see how these 2 balance each other out going into the midterms. we just don't know because we've never quite seen anything like a civil right. this big being rolled back before. it's hard to know how people will react in the voting this what other sort implications or things that you're looking out when it comes to the political impacts of all this. well, it's very, very important to say that to people who think maybe abortion rights are not an issue, they give a lot of stock to. they don't. they aren't pregnant. they don't plan becoming pregnant. don't imagine that whatever impact their lives. think about the idea of a supreme court that has just said you don't actually have the privacy in your private in your personal life and your reproductive like that. you think you have to think about how that could affect do use do you care about being able to marry or being with the person that you
12:20 pm
love all of these other rights are also embedded in the right to privacy. and the supreme court just took a really big bite out of that freedom. so this is going to affect all of us in ways more than just abortion rights. all right, donna crane, political science lecturer at san jose state university. we appreciate your perspective. >> all right. talk a bit about our forecast now taking a live look outside at the beautiful bay. nice overhead shot there. looking a little bit hazy in the distance, though we have kron 4 meteorologist rodriguez here with more details for us. hey, mabrisa. >> hey there 70. and we're tracking fire coverage out there today in the bay area. so we're treating that cool cloud cover out there along the coast. pleasanton 99 degrees, relative humidity, 29%. so it is going to be another hot, dry day in the bay area. fortunately, wind speeds on the calm side right now out of the west southwest at around 9 miles per hour sustained winds. but crockett, though, already heating up,
