choose the app that fits your investing style. ♪♪ mpblt hello, every one. thank you for joining me this saturday. we begin today with rallies planned coast to coast marking a day of action for abortion rights. hundreds of thousands of people are expected to take part in over 200 events all across all 50 states.
8:01 am
they are in response to a leaked draft opinion revealing a majority of justices poised to strike down roe versus wade. if over turned, constitutional protections for abortion rights will be eliminated in 26 states, likely. we have reporters covering this in several key cities today. joe johns is live for us in the nation's capitol. let's begin in the nation's cap capital. the d.c. rally is near the washington monument and it will kick off at about noontime and people will start making their way to capitol hill outside the u.s. supreme court. >> reporter: that's right, fred. the point, obviously, the message they are trying to send is there is strong support for upholding roe v wade even though the court appears to be poised, if you will, to strike it down.
8:02 am
what we're told here is that they are expecting about 17,000 people in the nation's capital for this event but that certainly could be affected by the weather. rain is in forecast. a coalition of organizations is throwing this rally and march, if you will, including the planned parenthood action fund. the women's march and others. one of the messages they are sending especially from ultra ultraviolet, another one of those organizations is that they are very concerned about this. they see this, if you will, as their worst nightmare even though, fred, the nightmare is not fully realize d because it' only a draft opinion that's been released. back to you. >> that's right. joe, thaink you so much. we'll check back with you.
8:03 am
what's the plan there? >> reporter: right now in the planning stages but in a little under an hour that's when things should get under way. we're in brooklyn not far from the foot of the brooklyn bridge. the plan is for demonstrators to march across the brooklyn bridge. that's expected to get started in under an hour. they plan to mhoist up this banner it says our bodies, our future, our abortion. they are hoping the rest of the nation will hear. these are two demonstrations planned in new york city today. they will go not only to that message of seeking to not over turn roe v wade but a message to neighboring states. it's really a message from women to other women into the states that this hopefully, at least
8:04 am
they want, this to remain a safe place for women to seek this kind of health care. back to you. >> thanks so much. let's go to chicago where we find adrian. what's the plan there? >> reporter: different city and state but similar to what our colleague mentioned in the nation's capitol. supporters are expected to show up here in the heart of downtown chicago. organizers say they will likely share their stories of support as well as reproductive health stories. this rally starts in about three hours and as you mentioned it's one of hundreds happening across the country. earlier this week, the city's mayor lori lightfoot vowed to protect women's rights saying she pledges to invest and ensure what she calls equitiable access to abortion and reproductive care. she's backing that pledge with a $500,000 investment to increase
8:05 am
access to reproductive health care here in the city of chicago. as you may know, illinois is one of most liberal states when it comes to abortion rights in the midwest. fred. >> what are the expectations at that rally? >> reporter: i spoke to organizers who were fearful they would get rained out today. it's hot and sunny. they are expecting about 3,000 people to make their way to liberty park here in atlanta. people are still setting up. we have about an hour or so before this should fill up with supporters. we know about 12 or so other organizations coming out to support.
8:06 am
it's very important for the organizers to bring people out and for them to know that abortion access is still available even if this roe v wade gets over turned. there's still hope for the future. we spoke with one organizers today who explained why she says this is a call for action and not time to be fearful. take a listen. >> this isn't the moment for fear. this is moment for action. these anti-health politicians should be afraid because we are going dom fcome for their seats at the polls. >> reporter: she said anti-health legislation. that's really key part of the messaging today. this isn't about just people wanting to have abortions but this is about protecting the
8:07 am
right for people to decide what's best for their body and best for their health care. fred. >> thank you so much. another huge concern for women and families. parents are scrambling as a nationwide baby formula shortage gets worse. >> reporter: justine has searched far and wide for formula for her bear. > -- baby. emma had similar problems finding formula for her 4-month-old daughter, poppy. >> i never imagined i would have
8:08 am
had to look high and low for formula. >> reporter: million of families in america confronting that same crisis. a nationwide shortage of baby formula that's gotten worse. in recent days, more than 50% of formula was out of stock in eight states. nationwide, the out of stock rate is 43%. that's according to data asemimy. an agency that tracks how much product is on store shelves. >> we have never seen numbers like this. let alone in critical category like baby formula. >> reporter: in february the company abbott nutrition recalled three brands of formula after some infants got sick from a bacteria and two died. what should parents do now? >> go out and buy formula even if it's not the same formula brand that dwyour baby is used . your baby will transition over day or so. >> reporter: experts say don't
8:09 am
stretch out the formula you've got by adding water or something else. that can cause illness and don't do what many desperate parents have tried, making their own formula. >> formula is a complex mix of nutrients, vitamins, minerals. it's nearly impossible to get the proportions right doing it at hope. >> reporter: how long will parent vs to deal with this they didn't want to estimate weeks or mo months. >> we don't see this letting up. the issue that's caused this out of stock crisis are continuing to factor into stocking issues. >> reporter: the biden administration just announced its working with manufacturesers to get more baby formula on the shelves faster. in the meantime, new parents will have to deal with limited purchases. chains like cvs, wall greens, target and walmart are limiting the number of cans customers can buy in each transition.
8:10 am
>> thanks so much. so far the biden administration has not given a timeline for when the shortage could end. what is the kwwhite house doingo try to get this formula on store shelves quicker? >> reporter: they have taken a number of steps in recent days. it comes as questions continue to mount as the why the white house didn't move sooner to avoid what we're seeing now which is bear shelves and very conc concerned parents. >> could you have taken the steps sooner before parents got to the shelves? >> we had been better mind readers, i guess we could have. we moved as quickly as the problem became apparent to us. we have to move as caution as well as speed. we got to make sure what we're
8:11 am
getting is, in fact, first rate product. that's why the fda has to go through the process. >> there we heard from the president himself going on the defensive a little bit but the fact of the matter here is that it's going to take time for the product to twactually get do th shelves. the white house has taken a number of steps. yesterday they announced a new health and human services website s/formula that will be able to assist parents as they go on a quest to find more infantas formula. another thing they say, you can see the web page on the screen is talking to manufacturers trying to get more of that product on shelve. fda says they will have an announcement next week about some of the efforts that they have done and tried to streamline the process. they have taken a number of more limited steps here. that includes importing infant
8:12 am
formula from abroad. that's something that before this happened, that was not exactly happening. they have been urging states to allow those who are on the wic government assistance program to be able to access more types of infant formula. asking for more flexibility as their options on that program are kind of limited. now something that is under kr consideration by the white house is enacting the defense production act. it allows the white house to take control over what is being produced in the country. that's something they have not decided on. it's range of things under k consideration. fred. still ahead, i'll be talking with one georgia congresswoman who will be attending the atlanta rally this afternoon. her push to defend abortion rights, next. plus, cnn speaks to the

8:18 am
not democratic women, not republican women but 68% of people in this country do not want roe v wade over turned. today is day of action across the country so people hear our voices and understand exactly what's at stake. >> if that draft opinion ends up being if final opinion, the correlation is being made it will be up to states. senator john thune said it should be up to state legislatures to determine abortion rights. what are your concerns about if that is to happen? a final decision would mean over turning or removing rights in some 26 states. what are your concerns about it being up to state legislatures to either make allowances or not for the access to abortion? >> it's not just access to abortion but when we talk about state's rights this is the same argument they are making on
8:19 am
voting rights. i'm a black woman from the south. i understand when they say states rights. i takes me back to a place where states were determining if i had the right to vote. if i had the right to be a full person in this country. when this is happening, we need a federal government, united states congress, to step in and make sure that people are protected across the board. right now, we are going to face a time, i've never lived in a time when roe v wade was not the law of the land and now here we are. >> what do you fear or what are you concerned might be next? >> today i want to be clear to every one watching that abortion is legal. if you need care, please get the care that you need. what we're seeing, what is coming out of this court is that abortion is going to be illegal and in many states without exceptions. what you're saying is you're inserting your beliefs in
8:20 am
between that of a doctor and a woman when she is seeking the care she needs. i don't know why an individual chooses abortion care but one in four women by the age of 45 will have an abortion. >> how do we get to this point? >> we saw the judges being appointed. we sue supreme court hearings from potential justices lied in their senate confirmation hearings about their views on r oh, v wade and it being established precedent. here we are. i'm of the belief, when people show you who they are, believe them. they lied. we knew that he were not telling the truth and now this is the result. >> that precedent just last night justice thomas spoke to a conservative group in dallas. he said some of those words that were chosen by justices during their confirmation as you made
8:21 am
reference to saying roe v wade is precedent. it's the land of the law. justice thomas says when someone uses stare decis that means they're out of argument. >> what i hear is they sat in front of the senate judiciary committee and lied to the united states senate and the country about what they would do and how they would decide cases as a member of the supreme court. >> did it sound as though when the reference is made to precedent that judge, justice is out of arguments. he went onto say they are just waving the white flag. >> justice thomas is one i won't pretend to understand his thought process. there's been a number of things he's said not in line with the mainstream of the country and where we should give people more rights. what i know as of today is that
8:22 am
women, now are going to have fewer rights than their parents, grandparents. we have an obligation to step up and take decisive measures as a legislative body in this country. i've introduced a resolution so we are ae firming that women and doctors should not be criminalized for seeking abortion care in this country. today is about raising our voices and making sure we mobilize. >> is it your hope that these rallies, these marches could be influential since this was a draft and is et your hope that potentially it will influence their decisions before a final or do you believe this movement is symbolic of something else? >> i think we're looking towards the midterms. we understand elections have consequences. that got us into this predicament and we have elections on the ballot.
8:23 am
we have u.s. senate races. we have united states congress race and the state house races across the country that are going to be determining our access to autonomy over our bodies. we have an obligation to continue to do this through the midterm elections and elect leaders that will truly represent us. spl >> speaking of this election, now we're seeing form president, donald trump who has been campaigning for david perdue who is seeking the gubernatorial spot. bryan kemp is getting support from the former vice president, pence. what does this mean for the landscape, particularly for democrat, stacy abrams, who you are helping ing support across state? how might that will influential? >> while they are in middle of their family feud and tryingouc

mpblt we have breaking news out of ukraine. a u.s. congressional delegation led by senate minority leader mitch mcconnell makes an unannounced visit to kyiv. the visit is a strong signal of bipartisan support for ukraine from the united states congress and american people. melissa bell is in kyiv. any details emerging from that meeting? >> we don't know exactly when this visit happened. just that the video has been made available where you see the senate minority leader mitch mcconnell leading the republican congressional delegation to meet with president zelensyy visit. he appreciated in the context of
8:30 am
that $40 million aid package being held up in the senate by senator rand paul. the expectation is given the bipartisan support it has, it will get through. the question is when and how long is it going to take for that to happen. i think a strong signal being sent by those senators coming all the way to kyiv, meeting with president zelenskyy of their support. he said it stoke of the strong bipartisan support and it was greatly appreciated by the ukrainian people that appreciated the support for the democratic values of ukraine and their fight for their country. as i mentioned, it's that question of time. this is a $40 billion aid package that ukraine desperately needs for its fight on the front line but also for humanitarian reasons. the time is what's running out here in ukraine. that's very much the sense of what ukrainians are wanting to
8:31 am
tell us and ukrainian officials have been telling us both on the battle front and the civilians that are still looking to get more help. >> melissa, the siege of this steal plant in mariupol continues. the families of those still trapped inside are making a desperate plea to get thaer loved ones out. many including injured soldiers. those in the fight but might still be injured. what have the family members been telling you? >> reporter: it's a desperately sad story. you're talk about several hundred very young yukrainian fighters who have been holed up and are currently facing dire situation.

commune ications are infrequent. it's been hard to get through to them. legs being amputated, arms being amputate. they they believe that he only have another week to live in they are not helped. have a listen to what one mother, whose 21 years sold she's not seen since the month of february. she last heard from him on may 9th. this is what she had to tell us a short while ago. >> i was a strong tie with him. i always feel when he calls, i know e shouldn't be saying neg because it's hard for hem. i keep silent. when he wants to say something, he does. they are in the real hell. they deserve to stand on the
8:33 am
surface of the earth and see the sun. >> reporter: desperately sad words and a lot of tears a t the press conference held by the families be that have tried to turkish president and now turned to chinese president to try to intervene to help their children get home. >> oh, me god. it's horrible suffering. all right. thank you so much. ukrainian forces are pressing ahead with a counter offensive in the north eastern region of kharkiv despite efforts by russia to stop ukraine's advance as russian forces pull back three bridges were demolished. bridges that would have been key the ukraine's counter offensive. you can see the satellite images showing the sections where the bridges collapsed. let's bring in former secretary in the navy, ray mavis. good to see you. will the destruction of these bridges stall or stop ukrainian counter offensive?
8:34 am
>> it will slow it down. what it also shows is the russians have not been destroying infrastructure like bridges because they wanted to use them for their needs. this shows the russians are in a defensive posture. they are digging in trying not to be over run and the ukrainians have the offensive. it will slow it down . >> does it make you think the russians are running scared at that juncture? >> i think the russians are running a different mind set. when they came in and even when
8:35 am
they reset to eastern ukraine, it was all about going on the offensive, taking land, des destroying things in ukraine. now it's about protecting what they have. it's not about going on the offensive anymore. it may be a much more grinding war. it means things like artillery that we're supplying them that the u.s. supplying become that much more important. >> yukraine says it destroyed to pontoon bridges over a strategic river and is inflicting heavy losses on russian forces. how much of a set back is this for russia's plans in the east? >> it's a devastating defeat for russia. it shows that even though this
8:36 am
landscape should favor the russians with their heavy armor, their heavier weapons that ukrainians are using natural obstacles like the river where this bridges were put across to stymie the russians. it also shows the russian military hasn't learned many lessons because more than 70 armored vehicles were destroyed here when the pontoon bridge was taken down and up to more than 1,000 russian troops are casualties there. crossing the river on the pontoon bridge in the best of serks is a hard thing but this shows how little discipline the russian vs to put that many vehicles that close and finally
8:37 am
i think it shows the pressure that russian military leadership is under to try to make some gains in eastern ukraine to try to enkcircle the ukrainian arm and they have failed miserably. how meaningful is that in this whole theater of war? >> it's pretty astounding that the russia navy is losing to a country that has no navy. the ship you're talk about is a brand new ship. it was delivered in august of last year.
8:38 am
it's a supply ship. it's not warship but it speaks to ukraine's ability to attack russian ships where ever they are in black sea. you add that together with the sinking of the ship, they sunk three raptor class patrol boats. they sank a landing craft early in the war and it damaged another one. they can strike the russian sea going services pretty directly. it shows that the russians are pulling back their bigger ships, their warships to try to get them out of range. that limits what those ships can
8:39 am
do. also limits now been attacked and set on fire. they don't have to be very close to do that. ukraine cannot be resupplied by sea but it also means that ukraine exports grain can't get out. that's beginning to loom as a food crisis for the entire world.
8:40 am
this is a real crisis. this is putin's attack on the world food supply just like it was putin's gas price. >> all right. this food crisis and this conflict all being elongated. thank you so much. we'll be right back. >> thank you. ready to turn your dreams into plans and your actions into achievements? explore over 75 programs and fo-week classes at national university. your future starts tay at bipolar depression. it made me feel trapped in a fog.

welcome back. with just three days until voters head to the polls for pennsylvania's primary election, the race for the republican senate nominee has become a three-way race. dan america joins us from bucks county, pennsylvania. with the election just a few days away, a lot of excitement.
8:52 am
but where does this race stand? >> reporter: it is a wide open contest as you note. a fox news poll put out this week showed the top three candidates, david mccormick, dr. oz, the celebrity doctor and kathy barnette, the conservative candidate all within one another within the margins of each other. a three-person race with a whole lot of undecided voters which makes this wide open and really puts a lot of pressure on the last final days of campaigning here in the commonwealth. it is unexpected that kathy barnette jumped like this. i caught up with dave mccormick said he didn't see this coming and the reason is because of the way that mccormick and oz have run their campaigns. they have spent millions of dollars and a long with super pacs and making this a two person race and allowing someone like barnette who is focused more on the gop grassroots going
