8:01 am
inside and a deadly place. the media will have a special report from mexico where increasing numbers of journalists are being met . ah, the been protest by pro and anti abortion campaigners in the united states after an unprecedented league of a draft supreme court decision suggesting the law on terminations could be overturned. the current roe vs wade legislation has stood for most 50 years. president biden as urge congress to pass laws protecting abortion rights, sharp attempts, he has more from washington dc. i thousands gathered outside the supreme court on tuesday afternoon to protest the leet. draft opinion that was reported to have the support of 5 conservative justices and opinion. that concludes that since those who wrote the constitution
8:02 am
did not explicitly protect women's reproductive rights than previous judgments in training, a women's right to truth had no basis in the law. that we are long past. the point that we was protested about how many decades ago, but it's terrifying is a handful of anti abortion rights protested roadside. the court to my say, morrison is murdered, but flows seeking to end abortion access. this has been the goal since 1973. what justice is ruled in favor of women's reproductive rights? in the case of roe v wade, justice robert said that that was not in chick draft. we're very happy to hear that there were a couple of i stay with that draft and that will be the decision to overturn roe vs wade. the white house as it is prepared for whatever the actual verdict is. but the president was that the reasoning underpinning the draft opinion has far reaching implications and basically says, all the decisions related to your private life. and whether or not you decide to
8:03 am
conceive a child and i was watching them on the voice range of other decisions. what are the, how you raise your child? what does this do? does this mean that in florida they can decide they're going to pass along? saying that same sex marriage is not visible to you, of has the worst maternal mortality rate in the industrialized world. those here a word that terrible metric could now deteriorate even further. the sign was inspired by conversations with many women today. i don't think that anybody has an idea of what the real world consequences are. and especially those who are in a position of privilege. i'm like everybody, i'm supreme court myself did not. there's a lot of really potential for harm. but there was hope to oppose have consistently shown 70 percent of americans are against outlawing abortion. democrats seem to be hoping for a bump in town out in november's mid term elections from those who support female, reproductive rights. but there is an awareness had in the past when the democrats
8:04 am
about the opportunity to codify a woman's right to choose. they failed to do so. she ever townsley al jazeera washington. kristen swimming has more now from a large demonstration in new york. the dismantling of roe vs wade is something that abortion rights activists had been worried about and organizing against. so when this leaked supreme court document came to light, they sprang into action and you can see the results behind me were outside of the court houses in new york city, where a huge crowd has gathered an angry crowd. many demonstrators here describe what's happening as an assault on women's rights, on their ability to control their own bodies, and should roby overturned and the right to abortion. be left to states to decide many see it as a step backwards. here in new york, lawmakers from the state level on down are promising to keep abortion safe and legal in this state, and also make it
8:05 am
a safe haven for women coming from other states where abortion may no longer be legal. however, we know statistically that those who seek abortions tend to be young in their twenty's already have a child and be low income. those are the kind of people who would have a hard time traveling across state lines of course. so what we're seeing here is determination on the part of many activists and outraged individuals, men and women, vowing to keep the issue alive, make their voices heard, and not let this right. go away without a fight. but victoria robinson is the founder of reassemble life, dot com. she says, even if the lords change woman will still be able to terminate pregnancies, i would say to the democrats and the pro abortion industry, which is a multi $1000000000.00 industry by the way. so i can understand why they're nervous right now. i would say to them, if you're so sure, this is what the majority of americans want. and what's the big deal?
8:06 am
let it go back to the state so that each state can vote whether they want abortion in their state or not. i don't think that that's going to be legal to penalized or discriminate against someone who because of their economic status. i would say that that's going to probably end up going to the states and there will be organizations that will rise up to help women get abortions if they want them. the thing that the misconception about road, the way being overturned, is that women won't be able to get abortion is going to be state to state because women will still be have access to abortion. i would say there are pregnancy resource centers across the country in the united states and by a margin of 3 or 4 to one abortion clinic that are there to give free resources to women who find themselves in an unplanned pregnancy. whether they, if they choose life with diapers, with baby clothing the formula, they need all to, to give them that free access to help. so i would say to the democrats and the pro aborts. put your money where your mouth is, offer the same resources to women who want to continue to have abortions in those
8:07 am
states that don't offer abortion any longer. once ro, leeway is overturned, now you're going to have the opportunity to prove you care so much about women. now south korea's military says north korea has fod believes to be a ballistic missile. the projectile is set up and fought from soon at a port in the north capital region. is the 14th launch this year with rob mcbride just live now from the south korean capital. rob, so what more details are emerging about this latest massage? are we are waiting to get more details from the south korean military, but our military officials will be analyzing the flight path. it's flight data to try to give an indication of what type of missile it was, or they will say it is our to the a ballistic missile. it fell into the sea separating japan from the korean peninsula. but interestingly, did come from the soon and district just outside capital r pyongyang and it's from the same district that at the end of march, north korea fired an icbm at an intercontinental ballistic missile. the kind of
