3:01 am
we're so grateful to have you this sunday, june 26th. thank you for starting your week with us. a bittersweet morning here at cnn. it is christi's last day for us. >> i didn't preread that. yeah, after nine years. thank you so much. i'm so glad that you are here. >> i'm thrilled to be here with you to send you off in the right way. we'll have more about that and give her a great farewell in the next couple of hours. >> i appreciate that. we want to get to what is on your mind, we want to begin with the war in ukraine, of course. there is some news there looming over this meeting of g-7 leaders in europe. the explosions rocked theital o morning. between four and six missiles
3:02 am
were launched at kyiv using russian strategic bombers. >> president biden is going to try to keep u.s. allies united against russia, even as he faces anger and frustration back home over inflation. the rising cost of gas and food and fears of a recession. he and other world leaders are going to look for ways to punish russia, and also managing a global economy that has become unstable. >> ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy is expected to ask for more sanctions against russia and more military aid for ukraine. wh his appeal is happening as they're discussing ways to end the war, even as this fighting is grinding on. >> we have team coverage of this developing story. cnn white house reporter kevin liptack has been tracking the meetings with g-7 leaders. let's begin with salma abdelaziz, at the scene of one of those explosions. what are you seeing this morning? >> reporter: an absolutely horrifying attack right on the heart of kyiv.
3:03 am
at about 6:30 local time, multiple rockets struck this residential area, just behind me here. and police have pushed us back, as you can see. earlier we were able to go to the scene to film there. we have pictures of that nine-story apartment building just torn open by this attack, the top story apartment completely devastated, turned into nothing but rebar and rubble. dozens of rescue workers were on the scene, trying to pull people out from under the destruction of their own homes. one woman we saw pulled out had been under the rubble for five hours before they were able to put her into an ambulance, get her to hospital. local officials saying there are several others wounded and there could be one person killed. we also met on the scene the local mayor, vitali klitschko. this is what he had to say. take a listen. >> it is live from russia. they are plotting against military. we, in our hometown, destroyed 220 apartment buildings, where
3:04 am
live civilians. they attack capital of ukraine, attack in ukraine. this senseless war. and we have to do everything to stop this war because thousands and thousands unguilty people, civilians died. >> reporter: among the people -- i'm so sorry -- there is a very chaotic scene here as well, because some residents are trying to get back into their home and police are not allowing it. among the wounded is a 7-year-old girl th. this is so concerning for the residents of kyiv. they had relative calm, relative stability, but all of that now shattered. it is a really tense scene, boris and christi. >> we appreciate it so much. thank you. want to bring in kevin liptack, following the president, the president this morning having a conversation with the german chancellor. what is happening there, kevin? >> yeah, christi, this is really a war time summit and there are other items on the agenda like china and climate change, but it is the war in ukraine that is
3:05 am
dominating and this question of how to sustain pressure on russia amid this global economic insecurity and we did see the president sit down with the german chancellor, olaf scholz earlier. he said we have to stay together. when you talk to american and european officials, they really describe the goals of this summit as twofold. one, to find new ways to punish russia for its invasion and we already heard this morning that the u.s. and other g7 leaders plan to ban gold imports, the second largest import from russia, so u.s. officials really hope this can make further dents on russia's economy. the second objective is to try to mitigate the after effects that the war is having. things like skyrocketing prices of oil and gas, they really want to talk and come up with ways to dampen those effects and bring down the prices as the war grinds on. boris and christi, it was only three months ago that the president was last in europe,
3:06 am
the mood is so different now. it is a much more somber situation. the war in ukraine has become this grinding conflict of attrition. these leaders are facing serious political troubles because of this spike in prices. and so one thing that they're going to have to discuss is what the next phase of this war looks like. and they will hear from the ukrainian president volodymyr zelenskyy tomorrow, but one thing they'll have to discuss is do they nudge him into more robust negotiations with russia? do they even nudge him toward concessions? there is no indication that zelenskyy is ready to go that direction yet. but certainly at the front of mind for these leaders as they prepare to sit down for the next two days here in the bavarian alps in germany. >> kevin liptak, salma abdelaziz, thank you so much. so let's talk about what's happening outside the supreme court this weekend, really in cities across the country. protesters are rallying against
3:07 am
the court overturning the landmark roe v. wade decision. >> for many, it has been an outpouring of anger and disbelief as more than two dozen states have indicated they could ban or restrict abortion. >> abortion bans are illegitimate. forced motherhood is illegitimate. >> reporter: from washington, d.c. to los angeles, and cities in between, abortion rights protesters continue to voice their anguish, following a ruling by the u.s. supreme court eliminating the federal constitutional right to abortion. >> i'm angry, i'm fired up. the fight is not over. people did this fight 50 years ago. i guess it is our turn to take the fight up again. it may take us 50 years, but we'll get back. >> reporter: there were small gatherings of people celebrating the ruling. >> millions of lives will be saved by this decision. >> reporter: in iowa, a pedestrian was injured by a truck while trying to legally cross the street in front of the federal courthouse during friday evening's protests.
3:08 am
>> i look over, i see people trying to push the truck back. and i just instantly got mad and ran over and tried to stop the truck. >> reporter: video of the incident shows the truck appearing to push through a group of protesters, with one person falling to the ground after making contact with the vehicle. in providence, rhode island, jennifer rourke was punched in the face by an off duty police officer and gop opponent at an abortion rights rally at the state house on friday night. rourke telling cnn in a statement, the incident, which was caught on video, shows what appears to be rourke stepping into an altercation at the protest, and almost immediately afterwards getting punched in the face by jeann lugo. lugo turning himself into the rhode island state police on saturday. cnn reaching out to the providence fraternal order of police to ask about possible legal representation for lugo, though we have not heard back as of saturday night.
3:09 am
in phoenix, law enforcement used tear gas late friday to disperse a crowd of abortion right supporters. after they repeatedly pounded on the glass doors of the state senate building. arizona department of public safety spokesperson bart graves told cnn. in eugene, oregon, ten people were arrested friday night, during a demonstration dubbed a night of rage in response to the ruling. that's according to a release from eugene police. in greenville, south carolina, at least six people were arrested saturday, at a protest that was attended by hundreds of people in downtown. according to a news release by the greenville police department. video taken by emily porter shows the moment police detained several demonstrators in downtown greenville at the rally. an officer is also seen yelling at protesters to get back, though another officer tells protesters who are jeering the police we are not on either side. in washington, d.c., u.s. capitol police arrested two
3:10 am
people saturday afternoon for the destruction of property after they were accused of, quote, throwing paint over the fence by the u.s. supreme court, according to u.s. capitol police. let's bring in cnn political analyst julian sullizer. good to see you. president biden wants congress to guarantee abortion rights nationally. what can democrats realistically achieve? >> it is going to be very difficult. although senator manchin has indicated support for some kind of legislative fix they don't have the votes in the senate. republicans are not going to compromise on this issue, and because of the filibuster, i don't think there is a lot of legislative leeway. executive power will be what biden has at its disposal. and i'm not sure how much he can do with that in the coming year. >> and you pointed out the filibuster, the white house on specifically that issue has been
3:11 am
hesitant to try to change the rules of the senate. should the approach change? >> well, many democratic critics of the administration say, yes, they said yes on other issues. voting rights, gun rights, because the reality is with a filibuster, and a majority of this sort, even a majority that is a little bigger, you just can't move legislation. it is a super majority, upper chamber at this point. not by design, but because of this filibuster process. and i don't think democrats have much room unless that process is eliminated. >> so you pointed out that this decision by the supreme court highlights the legacy of the trump administration, soon after the decision was announced, the trump campaign sent an email trying to fund-raise off of it. how do you think trump is going to use this to his advantage as we anticipate he's probably going to run for president again? >> well, it is interesting, there have been some stories about his concern with this. that he worries that this might
3:12 am
energize democrats to mobilize, to come out to vote. but it is one of his biggest legacies, the creation of a 6-3 court is something i'm sure we will hear a lot about, and as trump re-enters the political arena, and we're all expecting him to run again, he's going to boast about this, because for everything the creation of that 6-3 court is very important to the republican coalition and it is going to energize evangelical conservatives, for example, to come out and support him again. i think politically this might really strengthen his standing within the gop, he delivered something other republicans were unable to do. >> and his ultimate sway over the supreme court as you noted making this 6-3 dynamic on the court is something that republicans have been working toward for decades. it is the culmination of more
3:13 am
than a generation of work. do you foresee democrats having to piece together that kind of long-term strategy to step up and match that effort on the conservative side? >> well, they need to look at it. conservatives have been working on this since 1980s, ranging from creating organizations like the federalist society to a hard ball approach in the senate, to making sure that nominations were favorable to republicans. if democrats don't do this, and work year to year, they're just going to see more reversals of basic social rights as we have just seen with the elimination of roe v. wade. so i know there are democrats who are looking at this model and trying to replicate it and i think it is going to be important because republicans right now are really benefiting from what they have been doing for decades, not just for years. >> you mentioned the way that nominees are processed and confirmed as justices. i'm wondering what you think of
3:14 am
senator susan collins saying she felt misled by neil gorsuch and brett kavanaugh as nominees to the supreme court saying that they were okay with roe v. wade being precedent, and then as justices overturning what had been 50 years of law. >> well, i'm not sure why she was so surprised, ronald reagan used to say trust but verify and it doesn't seem that she really verified it. i think as the nominations were happening, many people were clear these were not going to be justices favorable to roe, or to reproductive rights as they have been established since the '70s. so i think she's going to have a lot of critics asking why do you even believe that, or why did you have such conviction this would be true? and now the results are right in front of her. >> i found this having from senator josh hawley of missouri, he says that he thinks the roe decision is going to drive more americans to move to states that
3:15 am
align more closely with their political views, but he wasn't subtle in pointing out that that could help republicans pick up more electoral college votes. what do you make of his argument? >> maybe. i mean, we are now having a sorting of states according to social policy and this more than many others might cause people to reconsider where they move. i'm not sure senator hawley is correct in that this will be a mass exodus to red states. i think a lot of democrats would think the reverse, people would want to live in a more correspondent pluralistic environment. so we'll see. all these political predictions could go both ways, but it is connecting decisions in washington to the kind of life americans want. and these decisions are becoming more pertinent with each court ruling from guns to abortion. >> and potentially more decisions that up end what have been deemed established constitutional rights acording
3:16 am
to that concurring opinion from justice clarence thomas. we got to leave it there. appreciate the time. >> thank you. still ahead, there is a show of solidarity and defiance. how people are responding after that deadly shooting outside a gay bar in norway. across the u.s., a lot of companies are seeing a renewed push by employees to create unions. what is fuelling this movement and how could it change the workforce? also, from retail to big tech, corporate america is speaking out against the decision to overturn roe v. wade. excuse me. we'll tell you what some places are doing to help their employees. with pronamel repair toothpaste, we can help actively repair enamel in its weakened state. it's innovative. my go to toothpaste is going to be pronamel repair. only at vanguard, you're more than just an investor you're an owner. that means that your goals are ours too. and vanguard retirement tools and advice can help you get there.

3:21 am
ordered juul labs to remove products from store shelves after issuing marketing denial orders for its vaping devices. and amid a buildup of concern the products are encouraging dangerous smoking habits among in age users. a grandmother is dead and four others including an 8-year-old child are injured after a car that was fleeing police saturday night hit them. nypd officers were approaching a vehicle because of mismatched plates, and they suspected that the occupants of the vehicle were smoking marijuana when the car sped off. right now one person is in custody in connection with the incident, but charges have yet to be filed. the names of those victims have not been yet released. and a man is in custody after a deadly shooting at a weather tech facility in bolingbrook, illinois. the suspect has been identified as 27-year-old charles mcknight jr., who was apparently a temporary employee. yesterday he allegedly robbed

3:24 am
cancel today's events. we take the police's advice and recommendations seriously. and are encouraging people not to gather in central oslo. >> reporter: meanwhile, norway's prime minister is expressing his solidarity with the queer community and speaking directly to muslims in the wake of the attack. >> i heard many muslims in our country are also scared and in despair. it is our common responsibility to make it clear no one other than the person or the people behind the attack is responsible for it. let there be no doubt, we are a community, we are a diverse and strong community, and we will never be threatened or give up our values. >> reporter: michael holmes, cnn, atlanta. >> thank you for that report, michael. for many americans, their feelings toward abortion are strongly tied to their religious beliefs. but there may be a conflict between faith and those beliefs. we'll speak to an expert next. some cleansers get us clean - but take my moisture. cerave cleansers help me maintain my moisture balance with hyaluronic acid, plus 3 essential c ceramides toto help restore my natural barrier.

3:29 am
well, for the first time in almost 50 years, americans are living in a country where abortion is not considered a constitutional right. >> and while many people of faith welcome the ruling, for others the supreme court decision overturning roe v. wade was not a cause for celebration. in fact, many religious communities still remain deeply divided on the issue of abortion access. let's dig deeper with father edward beck. great to have you on as always. appreciate you getting up bright and early for us. a lot of catholic leaders embrace the court's ruling, but that isn't in line with the entire community. it is not a monolith, right? >> yeah, boris. i think the question is becoming does criminalizing abortion promote this culture of life that so many people of faith are hoping to instill? and, of course, the catholic church teaches that cherishing of human life from conception to natural death. but what is happening is we're seeing a lot of anger and
3:30 am
resentment toward people of faith, and there is division even within faith communities of what is the best way to promote this culture of life. is it criminalizing abortion? is it appealing to people's moral and ethical development, understanding? so where do people of faith see their leadership really being most effective here and what should we be about as a community of people of faith. >> that's a division within the church and other religious communities regarding how they feel about abortion. there are people who believe in abortion rights, who are sitting in the pews this morning. >> yes, that's true. and, in fact, as you know, christi, 61% of the country believe that abortion should be legal and in my own denomination, 56% of roman catholics believe that abortion should be legal. but that doesn't mean they're pro-abortion, they believe there should be a choice.
3:31 am
so, you're right, people sitting in the pews are not necessarily in accord with what the hierarchy of those specific institutions may be promoting. and that's where the conflict is. i think the conversation really has to be about what does it mean to promote a culture of life? if we believe in the dignity of human life, from conception to natural death, well, then, do we follow a consistent ethic of life then? does that mean capital punishment, does it mean immigration? does it mean rights of the poor? does it mean paid family leave in al all of these are life issues too. people thinkcusing on one issue, abortion, but not focussing on other issues. >> do you think there could be more done to try to bridge that gap or create more understanding between two sides that can be passionately opposed?
3:32 am
>> i think it really is about conversations. i think that a lot of times people say that people of faith don't make a good argument for why they take their position. if you believe that the feetus s a human life, there is not just one heart beat, there is two heart beats, yes, a woman's right to her body is one issue, but does that other life also have some rights? and i think that we have not really focused even as a faith community on what does it mean to say, yes, a woman has rights, and yet this individual child, this fetus also has a life, the other heart beat. to have that conversation, about what do we really believe about human life, when do we really believe it begins, why is it sacred, is human life god given? people are not clear or i think unanimous about those kind of perspectives. >> difficult questions to
3:33 am
answer. no doubt faith plays a factor one way or the other. father beck, appreciate your time. >> thank you, both. >> thank you. a quick programming note, in the new cnn film "citizen ashe" directors rex miller and sam pollard explore the legacy of arthur ashe. >> the key events that really shaped his quiet determination to, quote, use what he had to do what he could. >> arthur decided that he didn't have to say a word. but his racket had to talk. >> beautiful serve. >> another ace. 14. >> ace. slides it over to win the game. >> comes back with it! oh, my! >> look at that. >> arthur ashe. >> '68 was a sensational period because i went two months without losing a match. anyplace. >> arthur ashe wins a tremendous

today's workforce is really unique. up ended by covid and its effect on the economy there are a lot of workers re-evaluating their roles and their worth. that may be why we're seeing unions make a comeback. amazon, starbucks, apple, they're seeing employees trying to unionize and in a lot of cases, they're trying to stop them. jason greer is with us now, a labor consultant and former field examiner with the nlrb. good to have you with us. thank you for being here. >> thank you for having me. >> i'm wondering, since we mentioned covid, do you think that that was the ultimate juggernaut to all of this? we're talking about a great resignation, but is it really a great re-evaluation or reset of people's values? >> 100%, you said it perfectly. i think it was the great reset, from the perspective that people had an opportunity to actually be at home, they, you know, consider their own mortality, but more importantly, they consider it -- if i give 12 to 16 hours a day, i'm not going to
3:40 am
be with my family, my friends, to an employer, there is something i want out of this. in a lot of cases it is i want to be heard, i want to be seen. >> how are companies receiving that? >> it is a mixture. there is some companies incredibly open to it, to the idea that they have to change with the times, you have other employers who want to go status quo, want to do business as usual. but what we're finding is that those companies that are really embracing this idea, that employees should be happy they get paychecks, they are the ones that are being unionized. >> so is there risk to unionization for employees? >> you know, that's a wonderful question. i think there is pros and cons. what i generally tell employees is this, you can organize a union, you can do all those things under the national labor relations act, you have that right. the organizing side is sort of the easier side. the other aspect of it is getting the contract and it has to be the type of contract you feel like you can live with.
3:41 am
i think there is pros and cons to everything, but ultimately if we get employers and employees to the point where they could work together, but in order to work together, you know, employers have to meet employees halfway in terms of what they're looking for. >> so when we're talking about a group within a company trying to organize, i'm wondering what is the key to successfully doing that. who has done it well? have you seen anybody who has done it well? >> there are a number of companies. in terms of organizing you can look back at the united autoworkers from the '70s and '80s in terms of the relationships they had with automotive companies. what we're seeing overall, look, millennials and gen zers are the best educated, some of the brightest generational warriors we have ever seen. but i think on the other side of the fact is that they're the first generation that will have less money than their parents. so when we talk about
3:42 am

goldman sachs, so a lot of big companies, especially blue chip companies ruy companies, are adding this to healthcare for employees. it is an interesting move. it is emblematic of what we have seen from corporate america, taking stands on policy positions. it may make employees feel more in need of their employer. here is what yelp's ceo said to employees, taking a strong stand, saying this ruling puts women's health in jeopardy, denies them their human rights and threatens to dismantle the progress we made toward gender equality in the workplace since roe. that's the position a lot of these companies are taking. dozens of them making these announcements, however, lots of other employers have not. big names like walmart have not. this is another dividing line in the post roe world, what companies provide what kind of healthcare to employees. >> and the dividing line is also within the states. there are companies that have

had headquarters or offices in republican-controlled states where there could be some real roadblocks here. do you know if states are going to be able to get in the way of corporate assistance for employees? >> right, that's going to be part of the story now. we're very much at the beginning, not at the end here, providing that support for travel expenses, even if the employer doesn't exactly know why the person is traveling to another state, but that offer could make companies a target for lawmakers and some of these red states. we have seen, for example, in florida, a florida governor ron desantis very willing and able to use government power against corporations like disney, disney being a key example, in the last few months. here is this morning's "washington post" front page, which signals where we're heading more broadly. the headline says after roe, a gop push to go further. referring to lawmakers mapping next battles in states in congress. these are republican lawmakers, mostly on the local and state level, and grassroots activists,
