1:33 am
gutmacker institute. hours after this ruling, missouri were the first state to introduce a ban, followed closely by south dakota, they have also introduced a ban, except where the life of the mother is at risk. it has many states as are expected to limit abortion in this way, you could end up with large areas of america where women need to travel 300 miles to access their nearest abortion clinic. this is a huge story, what is the global reaction been to this? . ., ., the global reaction been to this? . . ., ~ , this? canadian prime minister justin trudeau _ this? canadian prime minister justin trudeau described - this? canadian prime minister justin trudeau described this | justin trudeau described this as horrifying, while the british prime minister, boris johnson, says this is a step backwards. in latin america there has been shocking critical commentary there, because people say about this ruling contrasts with moves of air to move towards more liberal abortion policies. —— moves there. one mexican senator said she would have no step backwards in the work she
1:34 am
has done to de— penalise abortion in mexico. meanwhile, in el salvador, the anti—abortion politicians who run the parliament there and welcome to this move, and they say this shows their view is the dominant view on this issue in the americas. we have also been hearing notjust from world leaders but from the world health organization. the head of that says he is disappointed by this ruling, and he says he would have expected america to protect women's rights. jae expected america to protect women's rights.— expected america to protect women's rights. joe biden also sa in: women's rights. joe biden also saying this _ women's rights. joe biden also saying this is — women's rights. joe biden also saying this is not _ women's rights. joe biden also saying this is not the _ women's rights. joe biden also saying this is not the end - women's rights. joe biden also saying this is not the end of. saying this is not the end of the road on the story. shelley, thank you for bringing us up to date. we can speak now to the president of texas right to life, drjohn seago. what is your reaction to this ruling? what is your reaction to this rulin: ? , ., , ruling? the pro-life ruling is kind of in — ruling? the pro-life ruling is kind of in shock, _ ruling? the pro-life ruling is kind of in shock, but - ruling? the pro-life ruling is kind of in shock, but also . kind of in shock, but also celebrating this phenomenal accomplishment from the pro—life movement in texas. obviously it is a big win for you. do you have any kind of, sort of feelings towards me
1:35 am
many, many millions of women who do not now have that right to abortion?— to abortion? this is a huge accomplishment, - to abortion? this is a huge i accomplishment, something to abortion? this is a huge - accomplishment, something the movement has been working towards, but yes, as the supreme court put it today, this is a profound moral question. there is still a lot of cultural conversation, a lot of cultural conversation, a lot of discussion here in the united states about, what are our obligations to women? as pro— lifers, we believe elective abortion is unethical, but we still have obligations to the women, so we want to support the women without recommending that causing the death of her child is her best option. it death of her child is her best 0 tion. , ., , death of her child is her best 0 tion. , . , , option. it is a hugely divisive issue in america, _ option. it is a hugely divisive issue in america, of - option. it is a hugely divisive issue in america, of course. | issue in america, of course. this is something you have and campaigning for many years for? yes, the pro—life movement has been working for this movement for the last 50 years, and in texas we have been one of the most bold states in trying to push the line, and pass laws
1:36 am
that will raise important questions for the supreme court to look at, and they have avoided looking directly at the ethics at the heart of the issue of elective abortion until now, they were saying it was an egregious error back in 1973 for the supreme court to rule on this for every single state, and today they reversed that opinion. state, and today they reversed that opinion-— state, and today they reversed that opinion. what do you make of ulobal that opinion. what do you make of global reaction? _ that opinion. what do you make of global reaction? you - that opinion. what do you make of global reaction? you have . of global reaction? you have quite a few world leaders coming out of saying this is a step back for the united states? in step back for the united states? ., , , states? in our view, this is not a step _ states? in our view, this is not a step back. _ states? in our view, this is not a step back. americanl not a step back. american history is about expanding more and more protections and more and more protections and more and more protections and more and more rights to more and different populations. so that has a long history of having an ideal ofjustice and liberty, but has not been accessible for every american, every individual within our borders, and american history is a long march to expand that. we believe that pre—born children, science tells us they are human, science tells us that individual beings, and we
1:37 am
believe that means they deserve our moral attention. so we believe this is progressive in protecting more americans. we have been _ protecting more americans. we have been reporting recently on gun control measures, and i know this is a completely different story, but gun—control measures have taken decades to get any kind of legislation through, we have seen very limited legislation through, and then in one fell swoop there has been a huge, massive limitation on women's rights in terms of abortion. do you not see there being a slightly different, i think a lot of countries and people would think this is really interesting or hard to comprehend, how it is easier to buy a gun in the united states thanit buy a gun in the united states than it is to get an abortion and lots of different states. is there not a worry here that this is curtailing many women's rights in different states? this is not curtailing rights, in our opinion. this is an unethical act. you cannot get away from it, in itself. our fans on the other side introduced the euphemism of choice, but we talk about
1:38 am
choice, but we talk about choice, we have to talk about what is the women choosing? the woman is choosing to pay somebody to cause the death of her unborn child. that is unethical. a bigger, stronger party using violence to end the life of a smaller and weaker party. that is the definition of injustice was up is the moral equation of what is happening in abortion. and while we sympathise with these women who think that is necessary, a progressive society, humane society, would say that there are better options. there are better things to offer you don't saying that we can only six —— you can only succeed in school or your career if you cause the death of another human being. that is unethical. and in texas we are committed to protecting that life but also supporting that life but also supporting that woman to overcome hurdles that woman to overcome hurdles that she may be facing with this unexpected pregnancy. that is all we have _ this unexpected pregnancy. that is all we have time _ this unexpected pregnancy. that is all we have time for. - this unexpected pregnancy. that is all we have time for. thank you forjoining us.— you for “oining us. thanks for havin: you forjoining us. thanks for having me- —

and boost the population. here in the uk, red kites have had a remarkable change in fortunes since they were almost wiped out three decades ago. our environment correspondent, helen briggs, reports. soaring high in the sky above the countryside, living proof of a conservation success story. three decades ago, red kites were rescued from the brink of extinction by reintroducing wild birds from sweden and spain. doctorian evans was one of the pioneers. it all went out of expectation, it was such a huge success which was amazing. obviously the birds in spain, unfortunately, in the last 30 years have not done so well so it is a great opportunity to go back and, you know, that is where we went to spain in the first place to save kites and now we can do that by helping them with the kites we have

1:57 am
from around 10— 15 degrees, not particularly cold first thing in the morning. let's have a look at the forecast for saturday then. here is the area of low pressure with clouds and showers swirling around, this is a cool at lancee breeze so around these coastal areas of cornwall, devon and the coast of wales, the irish sea and into scotland. it will be chilly. temperatures around 15—15 degrees in some spots. basically, the further east you are the sunnier and warmer it will be. out towards the west always a chance of catching some showers even heavy ones, not just through the afternoon but in the evening as well. they will have a tendency to drift northwards carried by the breeze circling this area of low pressure. that was saturday, this is sunday. look at this, even some persistent rain at times expected in northern ireland and some of the western part of the uk, further east dry and bright and in fact east anglia and the south—east and along the south coast of england it should be a mostly sunny day on sunday. here, temperatures up to 23 degrees in one or two spots
1:58 am
but more typically talking about the mid or high teens a little bit further towards the west. and the low pressure is still with us early next week but what happens is, it actually moves away and another one takes its place, bringing spells of rain to western parts of the uk once again. overall, we are in a spell of fairly unsettled weather. here is the outlook for some of our major cities, you can see the further north and west you are, the more changeable it is with these showers. the best of the weather will always be further south and south—east. have a good weekend.
