6:09 am
constitutionally protected rights of women girls. ah, protesters gathered in los angeles and other cities around the state, newsome says he will propose an abortion rights amendment to the state constitution for a state wide vote in november. we look forward to going front of the voters affirming is constitutional right in our state in the constitution, not just statute because we now recognize the vulnerability of the moment we're living in california as the least restricted access to abortion in the us. it covers the cost of the procedure for low income women and requires private insurance to pay for it. newsome has suggested that state funds may be used to help women in anti abortion states. pay for travel to california. california has war abortion providers than any other state,

6:12 am
the reasoning using this only applies to abortion, it would not apply to any other issues, like marriage contraception and any other social issues. it's this, this what the supreme court does in this draft, and of course what they do when they finally release or decision is. and that may be another matter we hope not. but it's very clear that they are only addressing the abortion issue, which was so egregiously decided 50 years ago. i shall prepare now to sierra when we come back. we're in nigeria is ne, don't province. whether you am 2nd general comes face to face with former boca, or i'm fighters, leading forestry experts meet in south korea to try and find solutions to reverse climate change mana saying, ah,
