6:11 pm
>> california is and will continue to be a beacon of hope for any individuals seeking reproductive health and abortion. leslie: whether you are a supporter or opening of a beto o'rourke question rights, the new developments mean abortion rates are about to take centerstage here in california -- ama: so what should our expectations be on abortion rights for the summer? leslie: going forward, as you heard, california is putting itself up to be a safe way, a haven, a refuge for women from other states who are seeking abortions if the supreme court indeed follows through and there is a final decision to rollback roe v. wade. we have 13 bills making their way through the legislature right now. on top of that, a constitutional amendment that will ultimately be voted on this summer. we will know going into the fall

6:29 pm
dan: abortion in america. it has been legal for 50 years because of roe v. wade. but as you are hearing, that may be about to change. the women who have had abortions may be different than anything. ama: reporter denise theodore from our sister station in los angeles looks at the data. reporter: who is getting abortions? according to the most recent cdc data, women with family incomes less than 100% of the federal poverty level accounted for more than half of all abortion patients in 2018. black women had the highest rates. white women, the lowest. >> the majority of abortions are affecting black and hispanic mothers and young women. reporter: this dr., with u.s.c. schaefer center for policy and economics studies disparities in reproductive health.
6:30 pm
>> i think this is taking years of progress backward, especially when it comes to health equity and maternal health. reporter: the cdc snapshot also reveals that 85% were unmarried, 14% married, and it's percent were already mothers. >> mothers are perhaps not taking contraceptives when they need to or they may not adhere to them regularly. they have an unattended pregnancy and would like to have an abortion. reporter: if roe v. wade is overturned, the legal status of abortions in the states in red and yellow would be bearing or restricted. many experts believe that state in blue like california will be highly impacted. >> we will see an influx of patients going into states like california. which could overwhelm the system. reporter: abortions using medications made up 42% of the procedures in 2019. surgical abortions accounted for 49% of the procedures. the doctor says that may be due to the fact that abortion medications are more difficult for women to access.
6:31 pm
ama: abortion is both political and personal. just ask this similar tale congresswoman jackie speier, as we get to 3:00 p.m. show. >> once upon a time you had an abortion. you said that it saved your life in more ways than one. how so? >> it was a painful experience, and certainly, no one wants to happen -- to have an abortion. i was pregnant with our second child. it was 19 weeks, a second trimester abortion. and it was a fetus who had slipped from my uterus into my regina, and efforts to try and get it to be slipped back into my uterus failed. and so i made a decision, along with my spouse, to terminate the pregnancy. it was a horrible experience.
6:32 pm
but it was the right thing to do for me at that point in time. every woman has the right to make that decision personally. it is about personal autonomy. about having control over your own body. if you read the opinion, this draft opinion by justice alito, he is basically saying "this decision should be made by man in state legislatures across this country." a majority of members in state legislatures are men. that doesn't make any sense. so i think because we have had it as a right for so long, i think a lot of women don't appreciate that this is about to be taken away from us. dan: jackie speier today. there were 3:00 program "getting answers," we spoke with our special correspondent dr. patel. he addressed the medical issues that he sees in the abortion
6:33 pm
rights debate. >> i am concerned all around. this that's a terrible precedent about the ability for politicians to govern what happens in the scientific world, and with a uterus and reproductive rights. dan: dr. patel says he is also concerned about the impact on those who live in a state with some form of an abortion ban who may not have the resources to leave their state to seek medical care, abc 7 news political director appeared in our newscast. ama: we asked him if abortion rights will become the number one issue for the november midterms. >> it is clear that democrats will try to make it a galvanizing issue. if the ruling does not do what the draft says it will do, it might change things. but if it affirms the initial view of this and we end up having the end of roe v. wade, it kicks the issue to the states, it does mean that it will be our main issue that democrats are talking about, and to a lesser extent, republicans. this is a victory for them.
6:34 pm
usually in politics, people organize around being angry or agreed in some way. ama: an abc news poll out today says 50% of americans say roe should be upheld by the supreme court. 28% say should be overturned. dan: the catholic church is responding positively to the leaked supreme court draft. one archbishop tweeted his support. he spoke with me during our 5:00 newscast talking about what he is believed to be at this moment in history. >> our goal is to make abortion unthinkable, because it is a very violent act. and i think women need to have the support necessary to give birth and give this child the right to life. all women should have that. dan: but you know that is not realistic. that hasn't happened for the last 50 years since roe v. wade was passed.
6:35 pm
there will still be a significant percentage of the population that believes abortion should be allowed, and they will pursue abortions. >> women need to be given this support. it might seem unrealistic right now, but that is because of the cultural mentality that has set in. ama: on the big story like this, whenever you want the news, remember, abc 7 news is streaming 24-7 in our abc seven bay area sen bay area streaming app. it is free and easy to download on your roku, amazon fire, apple, or fire tv. dan: president biden's well-documented struggle with his lifelong problem with a starter is bringing local awareness to a speech challenge. a san francisco supervisor introduced a resolution to make san francisco the first city in the state to recognize the first week of may as "stuttering awareness week." preston had a message for those who starter. >> thank you for the patients
6:36 pm
that you show every day, with many people in our society who do not show that same patience back to you. dan: the national starter awareness week was established by an act of congress and president ronald reagan in 1988. ama: education is part of building a better bay area, and this week marks teacher appreciation week. we want to shed light on the challenges many school districts face when retaining educators. education reporter lyanne melendez took a class a look at what san francisco is doing to attract teachers in a city known for its high cost of living. lyanne: when school districts complained about the lack of teachers, the issue is not always black-and-white. take san francisco unified. >> we have more teachers than we have positions for insurgent credential areas and a scarcity of teachers in other conventional areas. reporter: the never-ending saga extends to special education,
6:37 pm
math, science, and negligence. you would think given the shortage of teachers in specialized areas, that the school district would use programs like "teach for america." but that program was illuminated years ago. here is what takes for america had to say. >> the commitment is for two years. but over 70% of our teachers have stayed for three years or longer, because they are set up for success. this is what we are committed to. lyanne: well teach of america has a big presence in the bay area and in san francisco charter schools the school district says they want to invest in teachers who will stay for the long haul. even the teachers' union agrees. >> teach for america in particular, the way their program is old is for folks to get the resume-building experience and then move into another profession. >> being a teacher is my endgame. i don't plan on doing anything else. i will retire in this district. lyanne: that is a second-grade teacher who is part of the district that richard teaching program where she earns a credential 12 working in a classroom, paid for by the
6:38 pm
district. >> the program helps me get a lot of real experience in the classroom and it does not -- it is good and affordable for someone like me who i am a single mom. lyanne: after earning her credentials she will have to go to the credential process -- the induction process. that is where u.s. fda steps in. >> in other districts, teachers have to pay thousands of dollars for the induction program, which is two years of coaching. that is a requirement from the state. we offer that for free here in san francisco. lyanne: even with all of this investment, they admit the high cost of living is still a challenge for retaining teachers. >> it is very, very difficult and something that is always on the back of my mind. lyanne: in san francisco, lyanne melendez, abc 7 news. ama: she has been reporting on bay area school issues for decades. it is way she lowered senior education reporter. you can get in touch with her on my. twitter, facebook and instagram handles are on your screen right
