2:03 am
abortion rights activist cried enraged at a court. many of them consider illegitimate. confronted the anti abortion rights activists, i well, both acknowledged, they had no hope of changing minds. it's hurt both. there are women die. there are people who are going to go to jail, brings they can't control in their own body. because people who make the laws don't understand, i will not, not being pro white because science is on our side. president joe biden was quick to condemn the decision is a sad day for the court and for the country. now, ro gone must be very clear. the health and life of women in this nation are now at risk. this decision basically said that the robi way decision was simply wrong. it is highly unusual for supreme court to overrule precedence, especially one of this important. so this court is unlikely to change its mind. now
2:04 am
the focus turned to congress to try and get a law. the guarantees, abortion access power concedes nothing without a demand, never has never will. do i think it's realistic that they will restore abortion right. if we sit home, hell know, do i think if we come out and raise body, we flushed the 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 whole showed. the majority of americans didn't want this decision to happen. how much daycare will determine if this is a permanent new reality in america? how do you have al jazeera at the supreme court? rob reynolds, is that a pro abortion rights protest in los angeles? and gabriel elizondo was at another in new york. but 1st, let's go to rosalind jordan, who is outside the supreme court in washington, dc. roz crowds have been growing there outside the supreme court throughout the day and emotions have been running high. how charged is the atmosphere now and what are
