rights. jim ronald is a lawyer and a u. s. presidential historian, we asked if the u. s. supreme court is looking at rolling back even more rights, while the majority opinion written by justice, a leader said that they're not doing anything but addressing abortion in a concurring opinion. justice thomas said no, no, no. i want to look at other things like other rights that have been established like the right to same sex marriage. and i think it is a real slippery slope right now that we've got a 5 person majority that can run things in one of the people who's sitting there should be married. garland obama's nominee who is blocked for almost a year and a half. so you've not only got a problem of the court that is doing things that the majority do not want in this country. but there's a real question about whether it's a legitimate court, and that's a really awful situation to be in because courts are only as good as their live
9:05 am
legitimacy. and this is really being called into question with this opinion. today, the supreme court decision in the united states has drawn a lot of international criticism. canadian prime minister just intruder tweeting the news, coming out of the u. s. is horrific. my heart goes out to the millions of american women who are now set to lose their legal rights to an abortion french president, him on the way my cause that abortion is a fundamental right for all women. it must be protected. and in scotland, 1st minister nicholas sturgeon said, friday's ruling mock to one of the darkest days for women's rights in her lifetime . to ukraine. now where you, crane and troops are retreating from the eastern city office, several don. yet after weeks of fighting against invading russian forces, a regional official said, ukraine's units would move to stronger positions. reason days are seen, russia make significant gains around the strategic eastern city. russia is trying
9:06 am
to encircle ukrainian forces and sees the entire don bass region. local ukrainian officials say the fighting is intensifying and nowhere in the east a safe anymore for residence. so is the withdrawal from a civil don yet a admission of defeat. earlier i put that question to our correspondent, give nick connelly. i think it's definitely an acceptance that 7, it was not a city that ukraine could hold on to with acceptable losses for any longer these quite exploring their how long ukraine has stayed in control. the city experts been talking about the city being taken by the russians for basically the best part of the month now. and ukrainian just kept on holding on, kept on forcing the russians to basically lose huge numbers of soldiers to invest a huge amount of firepower, pulling away weapons and resources from other parts of the front lines. just to gain a couple of streets at a time. and now in a situation where, so this is basically the only ukranian stronghold on the northern side of that 70
9:07 am
given its river, where the bridges behind them have been blown up. ukraine has now said that they are going to try and pull people out how they're going to get them out without bridges, without a situation where they're upon tunes. we don't know, but that seems to be the plan now. and yet it's a blow. but i think it's a situation where you created, basically tried to do the same as it did with mary paul to turn this into a pyrrhic victory for the russians. a hollow victory where they basically invested more resources than that city is worth. but they obviously are desperate for some kind of victory, some kind of game because of rule. now in our 5th month of war, the russians have pretty little to show, given the huge resources and given a huge, a security in fire power to show for all their efforts. and how do we know where the new positions of the ukrainian forces are a will be? so the expectation have been the durability chance, which is basically 70 units sits sister city. just on the other side,
9:08 am
the river bank which has kind of a geography topography that would make it easier to defend. you've got high river banks and lots of ways to basically shoot people trying to get across that river. but we have seen that recent days, the russians trying to come at least a chance from the other side, from the south in a way that would avoid them having to cross that river. in the past, we've seen the ukrainians when inflicting huge damage on russian attempts to cross that river in other places. so a sense that maybe the ukraine's will have to draw back a little further. but if you just zoom out and look at the bigger picture, these are still pretty small movements over a much bigger front line. the ukrainians are facing off against the russians over basic 2000 and slumped is of territory. and overall, ukraine is still in control of a big chunk of don bass. it lost most of the ground in the 1st weeks of the war and was basically overwhelmed, swamped with the tax all across the country. and now in recent weeks, those movements really haven't been that big. so yes, it is a tactical withdrawal. but in the big picture, ukraine is still holding on to its main centers main cities in that part of the
9:09 am
country and is basically trying to minimize its losses. now, unlike the russians where we've seen pretty significant willingness to do pretty risky, military maneuvers that have cost, the russian soldiers looked flight i. d w. next connelly their reporting friend, kia, thank you so much. let's take a quick look now at some of the other stories making headlines at this hour. at least 2 people have been killed in a, shooting at a gay bye. and my clip in norway capital are slow. 14 others were injured. a suspect was arrested to ever seen police say they are treating it as a terrorist attack, organizes of the osman pride festival, say they have cancelled their parade following the shooting us lawmakers of approved bipartisan legislation on gun safety. they are the 1st significant federal laws to be passed and decades. the reforms will make it harder for young people to buy weapons. the measures come in the wake of a spate of mass shootings including one out of school in texas that left $21.00
