4:01 pm
supreme court is poised to take a right away that pronouncement from south bay congresswoman anna issue comes after sunday's leaked draft from the high court. it indicates justices may overturn roe versus wade, the 1972 landmark ruling that women have a constitutional right to abortion, but the draft indicates the court would leave the issue up to individual states. and if you think that the states are going to be able to protect women think again because if the republicans take control of the house and the senate, they will pass a bill outlawing abortion in every state women will be hurt. women's health will be undermined people's lives could be lost. the push now is to mobilize for what some say is the most important political and social fight in two generations. it is appalling to think that my two teenage daughters may be denied the same rights and freedoms that women have
4:02 pm
rightfully had for close to 50 years. some south bay political leaders have already earmarked funds to provide services due to an increase in those seeking abortions. even prior. um to this announcement on monday, they started to see an increase in the number of patients looking for patient care. folks are coming here because they know that they can get the care that they need, and we will not back down. the other front in this fight is legislative. the house has passed the women's health protection act, and next week the senate will take up the issue. we must codify the rights established by roby by roe v. wade. but the senate stamp is uncertain due to a near 50 50 split. so the ultimate power brokers the people are being urged to step up and take action. if 70% of the people think one thing and the congress does something else. they can be replaced in mountain view. jessie gary ktvu fox to lose earlier this week, house republican leadership led by congressman kevin mccarthy,

4:22 pm
bit, so i asked dr wollensky, the head of the cdc. a year ago . so we have vaccines with extraordinary advocacy against severe disease and death. is there any sort of timeline because we're here? a lot of people still in masks at this event when we can maybe do an event like this without nasa. what might happen with a new variant, and so we are critically watching it. we're watching what's happening. the a and our new a two. but if you vaccine if you're boosted if you get tested early in disease we have access. to tools. that prevent severe. and death. bit which is an antiviral pill that you can take if you get covid within the first few days of getting symptoms. that's something that vice president harris took when she got covid. it's something that dr wolinski recommends. talk to your doctor

4:26 pm
acc. today the governor of tennessee signed a bill into wall that will require a clinician to be present to administer an abortion pill to a patient
4:27 pm
starting in january. this is despite federal regulations, allowing mail delivery of the medication nationwide. republicans in texas, kentucky, arkansas and ohio have also moved to restrict access to abortion pills in recent months. more than half of abortions in the u. s. are now done with pills rather than surgery. the issue of abortion pills certainly under close watch since the supreme court appears poised to overturn abortion rights. for some insight into the significance of these decisions. we are joined by doctor jessica hambleton, physician at planned parenthood . mormont doctor. thanks so much for your time, more than half of us abortions are now done with medication. as we said let me get your response to tennessee's new legislation. my reaction to this. i just want to be very clear that today, abortion is still safe and legal across the country and planned parenthood remains committed to doing everything that we can to provide people with the care that they need. to control their bodies, their lives and their futures. i mean, quite frankly,
4:28 pm
i've had enough of politicians attempting to regulate our bodies and our medical practice . i went to school for many years to become a physician. my practice is appropriately regulated by medical boards and pharmacy boards to help ensure that i provide safe ethical and evidence based care for my patients. who are these politicians who have suddenly decided that they have the education and authority to regulate health care. i think governor lee has a background in mechanical engineering. i mean, what kind of country are we living in allowing unqualified people to opine on medical care? this is arlene, stay out of it. doctor i want to go ahead and just gonna say 19 states have strict restrictions on access to this medication that earlier this year, the fda ruled women don't need to pick up the pills in person. so does this discord and confusion. concerned you. and can you explain why you believe this method is important to women? yeah absolutely. as you said more than half of abortions in the united states are medication abortions, and we
4:29 pm
know that this is a very, very safe and very effective way of an option of managing a pregnancy. laws like these make our patients very confused. they place unnecessary burdens on the people who need these medications. i mean, can you imagine seeing a doctor in person every time you need a refill for a prescription? not only needing to see them once, but as his tennessee law suggests, needing to come back for no medical benefit whatsoever to obtain your medication the next day. his laws are absurd. doctor may ask with the supreme court leak. are you seeing demand for these medications go up. yeah we are absolutely seeing an increase in demand for these medications. we now offer medication abortion that all 35 of our health centers in both california and nevada. as i said, we needed to increase access to care. dr congresswoman barbara lee said this week. making abortions illegal doesn't mean they'll stop. it just means they become more dangerous. so do restrictions like tennessee's
4:30 pm
create a situation for a black market that could put more women at risk. absolutely what we know is that people will find a way to have abortions and we know that medication. abortion is safe and effective, and i hope that patients will find a way to access this care that they need. early in pregnancy. um i expect that states like california and nevada will start to see an increase in procedures and with roe overturned. procedures that would be first trimester procedures or medication abortions that are outlawed in one state will inevitably become second trimester procedures and states like ours, who are committed to ensuring access to abortion. doctor do you think we could anticipate legal action, whether from planned parenthood or otherwise against these 19 states, especially since federal regulations allow delivery nationwide at this moment? absolutely i mean, we know that this fight is just starting while we have been preparing for a post racial world for many years at this point, um, this is just the tip of the iceberg. alright certainly something to
4:31 pm
follow as we await that scotus decision later this summer doctor jessica hambleton from planned parenthood. marmont. thank you for your time. thank you for having me. another rescue operation taking place inside the ukrainian ports city of maria paul to evacuate civilians trapped inside the city at a besieged steel plant officials say about 50 more civilians were rescued. including 11 children. it's estimated that about 2000 ukrainian fighters are refusing to surrender. british intelligence says russian troops may try to seize the plan to give russia military win. before their national victory day holiday, which is on monday. elsewhere russian forces they are struggling to gain ground. certainly what is happening to his russian forces, their stalled again in the second offense, and they are being systematically depleted once again. ukraine's military says its troops have prevented nearly a dozen attacks in the donbas

4:33 pm
extremely california has a vast network of interstates and highways systems that stretch across the country for them to further criminal. organizations. for them to push more of these drugs onto the streets to make it available on every corner. detectives say. this is why drug cartels use california as a shipping hub. all of these have a victim and they go far beyond the person that's killed with fentanyl, according to the d e. a more than two dozen states like texas, new york and florida. also have active cartel operations. accidental overdoses are almost exclusively fentanyl now to say we were blindsided is a real understatement. this is laura did here in this was her son, zach. you ready? zach's dad just said zach was a y
