3:04 pm
itself. one of us once said that it is not often in the law that so few have so quickly changed so much. for all of us in our time on this court that is never been more true than today. in overruling roe v. wade this court betrays its guiding principles. chief justice tried to find the middle ground but the court's opinion and dissent a relentless freedom from doubt on the legal issues that i cannot share. i would decide the question we granted review to answer and there was no need to go further to decide this case. democrats and clean the president are calling for political response of the polls. suggesting this opinion means that contraception and same-sex marriage are now in danger. likely in reference to justice thomas' solo concurrence. i agreed that nothing in the courts opinion should be understood or capped out on presidents that do do not concern abortion. for that reason a future cases we should reconsider all of this
3:05 pm
court's due process precedent including griswold lawrence. >> the court is not taking us on. >> does not align with the majority opinion which justice rights. regarding contraception and same-sex relationships are inherently different from the right to abortion. with the latter as we have stressed uniquely involves what they said potential life. it is hard to see how we could be clearer. >> it is interesting to note that despite the decisions yesterday and today at the courts is not over. there are seven more opinions to come we will get the next batch attendant them eastern on monday morning include issues and abortion, immigration, the reach and also the case involving the high school football coach on washington state refused to quit praying on the 50-yard line and no longer has that job. >> like live outside the supreme court thank you. president joe biden unloaded on the justices during emotional response of the white house to

3:07 pm
>> president biden: and a few abortion is a choice and a right. i think it's always a tragedy. >> the president's stance became more progressive. joe biden cast abortion rights as a central issue of the midterm elections. >> the right to life has been vindicated. the voiceless will finally have a voice. >> reaction among republicans have been over womanly celebratory. >> this is a momentous moment. >> i woke up this morning praying for this. i never thought that it would happen. speak about republican senator release this settlement statement justice decision is inconsistent of what they said in the testimony in their meetings with me. >> no point in saying good morning because it certainly is not one. >> today is one of the darkest days our country has ever seen. >> lawmakers mourned nearly five decades of precedents and values the decision to get out the vote in november.

>> with your vote you connect any of the final word. so this is not over. >> president joe biden announced today to continue on access to abortion-related medications while contraception's and a woman's right to travel to terminate a pregnancy. >> thank you so much to get expert analysis right now the president of the judicial crisis network president of the constitutional accountability center ladies thank you for being here elizabeth first to you know this doesn't track with the elite draft opinion that we had weeks ago however it wasn't 5-4, it was 6-3. anything surprising this opinion? >> nothing really surprised me in the majority opinion didn't go closely with that alito draft i was surprised frankie that justin thomas thomas his concurring opinion was so open
3:09 pm
and wanting to reconsider precedent that protects the right to choose a contraception for married couples and others marriage equality for lgbtq couples and other fundamental rights that people feared would be an issue if abortion rates fell but i was surprised that he was so open about that. i distantly think the majority that the constitution wrong. the constitution should protect the fundamental irreducible minimum of liberty was intended to include the right to decide for oneself whether with whom and when to form a family. the right to choose abortion is inherent in the constellation of rights. on the 14th amendment was passed it was passed after the civil war when the question of what it meant to be free was urgent and pressing as a master manner of law. equal protection of the law and liberty contained in the 14th amendment protect bodily autonomy and the decision of
3:10 pm
whether aware to hold former family. >> only your overall opinion but more specifically to address what elizabeth mentioned there by justice thomas. justice alito in the majority opinion writes that we have stated on a clinic quickly that nothing in this opinion should be understood to cast out our presidents that do not concern abortion. justice kavanaugh writing that i emphasize that overruling roe does not mean overruling of those precedents and it doesn't threaten our cast doubt on this president. seeming to say that despite what justice thomas just said we are not going down the road. >> justice thomas himself said she and a quarter earlier this case doesn't address those issues as no surprise that he thinks that we should reconsider them because the idea of due process assuming that he's long been concerned about not because of the policy result of those cases but the subject because of the legal opinion. i think elizabeth is right we should be looking at is what the
3:11 pm
writer fires of the 14th amendment out they were doing here clearly because abortion was illegal throughout the country that time. they thought of this month equal protection of the laws they want to free absolutely all of those things had nothing to do with abortion. the constitution did not create this right i'm so glad and relieved that we have a court that understands its job is to try to make decisions on his controversial issues the entire country. the job is to make the call of what's the right and wrong way to address the issue their job is to be saved as a constitution see to it? it is not. he goes to the elected branches in congress and the states. there right to do this in the face of all the hostility and the threats and the violence in an assassination attempt they're willing to stand by what they knew the constitution required this is a huge victory for the rule of law. >> quickly elizabeth she introduce that its contradiction in her mind of the supreme court
3:12 pm
said you can't make laws governing the right to bear arms the states can't and she said the verse the states can overturn constitutional right for 50 years that sheets on abortion. the right to bear arms is in the constitution. these justices on the right to abortion is not. so the difference? >> i think what does the constitution mean? i would see there is an interpretation of what the say commitment means to say commitment is not about individual rights that's with interpretation said similarly you look to the 14th a moment and you look at equal protection of the laws what is that mean? states banning in some states banning abortion at that time of four to the moment the four to the moment the 40 the moment was intended to disrupt unjust and unequal estate practices since were coming out of the civil war without the states were and half the states were free before to the moment was intended to move forward along the arc of
3:13 pm
progress and that's what we don't we apply the 14th amendment in the case of interracial marriage, marriage equality, the case of other rights of home that are protected individuals rights to make these decisions for themselves. americans know that one cannot be free and equal citizen in society if they can't make those decisions for themselves and that's why the majority of americans support abortion be legal. >> now it's up to those citizens in the states to make those decisions. thank you very much let's look at what's being done now to maintain security for the justices on the high court centers have been asking for emergency funding for existing laws to be in force congressional court as a part of the story from capitol hill. >> president biden: are: everyone to keep all protests peaceful. peaceful, peaceful, peaceful. >> tonight the president is calling americans to refrain
3:14 pm
from violence as calls for pro-choice protests call nationwide. some of those calls coming from members of congress. >> right now elections aren't working. >> protests outside the justices homes which are illegal under a federal statute have been ongoing since the draft court opinion meet in may. and just this month police arrested an armed man outside of the home of justice brett kavanaugh's for threatening to assassinate him. he has pleaded not guilty. and yet congress is heading home soon for july break. without passing emergency funding to help protect the justices. a bipartisan bill sponsored by senators bill haggard passed unanimously in the senate this week, but has not been scheduled for a vote in the house yet. the bill would have delivered $10.3 million to the u.s. marshals service and 9.1 million to the supreme court. to address unprecedented

3:33 pm
both sides could agree more radical than roe v. wade was. they didn't have to vote then and of the supreme court has made this decision will have to see what happens the midterm elections. it's doubtful that the get the numbers in both the senate and the house to make that happen, but we have seen this over the years with the supreme court make the decision i capitol hill this and like pass something a response. sometimes her some paying back and forth between the two branches. >> the battle is now in the states any of legal challenges they go to the states right? >> that is right, but as i was listening to the report just a marvel at the fact that this is now such a dynamic regulatory environment. for the last half-century and certainly since casey was decided where everything was litigated and it was located in the court, but it was under the rubric of this idea that there was a right to abortion and the only issue was the regulation.
3:34 pm
now it's an open field and i think it can be a wonderful thing to have people actually feel like they can impact the regulatory environment that they will live in in their community and that will be able to actually compare the way that abortion regulations are handled in different places and people can get a real sense of what they think is right about it, what they think is wrong about it, it is a much better discussion about abortion and should always have been in the political realm not the legal realm. >> i want to put up with a couple of senators said about being disappointed. the democrat from west virginia said that i trusted justice in justice kavanaugh when they testified under oath that they believe roe v. wade was settled legal precedent and i am alarmed that they chose to reject the stability of the ruling has provided for two generations of americans. the republican from maine throwing out a president overnight that the country has

3:36 pm
>> the suggestion that they committed perjury is outrageous and unfair. completely unfounded. i testified at the hearing favors confirmation i agree with what he said i'm also familiar without cavanaugh said. with this it was virtually identical with everyone of their colleagues said. they can't commit to vote in a particular way in a future case many of us objected during those hearings the democratic senators seem to be suggesting that they wanted an assurance of how they would vote as a condition for their own votes of confirmation. many of us call them out on that. those assurances were not given what they said was obviously true. is that this is settled law it's entitled to protection. disfavoring precedent. it is not an absolute doctorate. obviously the court overturns a president otherwise we wouldn't

have brown v board of education. we wouldn't have any of these cases that are celebrated the majority noted that the long footnote in its opinion said don't tell us that you can't reverse a case many of the members in the senate have favored all of those cases. there is to liberty by many i think is very unfair attack what is really happening for the court is not other telling how the public should treat abortion. they said that when roe v. wade was handed down in 1973 it interrupted a political over abortion. it said that it's time for that debate to occur for 330 million citizens to make this decision and not nine justices about the united states supreme court. >> last thing. for lawmakers on the left may be people on the left were hanging their hat on this expanded attack on what justice thomas said in a supporting opinion.
3:38 pm
about possibly looking at other cases. as i pointed to earlier the majority opinion written by justice alito and support it by justice kavanaugh off said no. this is strictly abortion and we are definitely not going down those other roads. >> and thomas sign onto that majority opinion as well made very clear. he actually said people will read the concurrence it's true that nothing in this opinion today goes to any of the case is about abortion. he brought up a future scenario in which they could revisit other cases that a been found right under a due process examination and he did talk about the other cases that would touch on things like marriage and contraception. this case itself will have nothing to do with overturning any of those decision. he was saying some of that could air may be happen in future. >> thank you very much this is a big day at the supreme court. up next the reaction to the roe v. wade overturned what is
