travel. meanwhile, here at the supreme court, more major decisions expected tomorrow. whit? >> all right, devin, thank you. and turning to president biden at the g7 summit in germany but still facing questions about the abortion battle back home, a group of senate democrats now urging him to take action. abc's chief white house correspondent cecilia vega joins us from austria with more. cecilia, good morning. >> reporter: hey, whit, good morning to you. it's day one of these meetings but i have to tell you it's that history unfolding back home that's hanging over the entire summit. you heard the president say before he left the united states that he thinks the supreme court has made some terrible decisions lately. but this morning, he's taking some heat from some members from his own party. take a look at this, we have 34 senate democrats writing, this letter to the president calling on him to take immediate action to protect access to abortion in the united states. they go on to say, there's no time to waste, writing, you have the power to fight back and lead national response to this devastating decision, so we call on you to take every step available to your administration. so far the administration has said this, take a look, that it will protect the right to cross state lines, it will protect the
right to obtain the abortion pill, that it will protect federal agencies and employees who carry out reproductive health services from any criminal or civil liability. whit, we have been talking about this though. there's nothing the president can do in terms of an executive order that restore rights roe had in place. right now, this morning, here that call for him to do more is hanging over this summit as it kicks off. >> and cecilia, while we have you here, of course, president biden is there for the g7 summit and we know russia's invasion of ukraine is also topping the agenda with allies. >> reporter: yes. exactly. in fact, he just wrapped his first meeting of the morning with the german chancellor. big theme he talked about in that meeting about keeping allies united. but starting to see some cracks, the united states announced today that it along some other allies is going to ban russian gold imports. that's just another attempt to further exclude russia from the
global economy, gold being russia's second largest export, but i have to tell you, whit. so far a number of allies have not signed onto that. eva, the president right now hoping that others do, but they're working this week to send this message out. they want these allies to stay united. especially when it comes to sanctions and military aid, eva. >> cecilia vega there for us in austria. now to the protests across the country in response to the supreme court ruling. abc's aaron katersky joins us with the latest. good morning to you, aaron. >> reporter: eva, good morning to you. police have already been worried about extremist threats to pride marches like the one today here in new york city. now they fear friday's abortion ruling is only adding fuel to the fire. many protests across the country this weekend following the supreme court's roe versus wade reversal were largely peaceful,
but it's incidents like these that have law enforcement officials on high alert. an off-duty providence, rhode island, police officer running for office as a republican seen here punching his democratic opponent at an abortion protest. that officer is now suspended and dropping out of to his race. in iowa, a pickup truck driver allegedly struck an abortion rights demonstrator after an argument. the concern from federal law enforcement officials is that extremists on the far left and on the far right are using this divisive moment to incite violence. >> we're seeing in chatter online and domestic extremist spaces indicating that both white nationalists and antifa -- anti-government extremists view this as an opportunity. >> reporter: the department of homeland security said the abortion ruling could spur violence for weeks. with abortion providers, churches and judges most at risk. >> one of my biggest fears is that somebody else would lose their life or their loved one. >> reporter: judge salas whose
son was murdered by a man targeting her has been urging congress to take action to protect judges. >> we know that my son would expect nothing more than for us to not only survive in the world but he wants us to thrive. >> reporter: congress has passed legislation to protect supreme court justices and their families, but no amount of security can compensate for the hostility that's now coursing through the country. janai it's not just the abortion ruling. the supreme court's conceal carry decision has led to calls on the far right for protesters to arrive armed. janai? >> you said it right, aaron. so much hostility. turning now to a look of what could be the next battle ground, the abortion pill. the u.s. attorney general saying the states can't ban the drugs. others saying states are trying to limit access to them. joining us now is abc news contributor kate shaw, professor of constitutional law at cardoza
law school. after friday's ruling, attorney general garland said states can't ban the abortion pill based on disagreement with the fda's judgment and its safety and efficacy. that sounds like a qualified statement. do states have legal ground to ban the abortion pill? >> it's clear that the abortion pills, and that's a two-pill sequence that's approved for terminating early pregnancies up to ten weeks, is going to be a very important part of the the fda has approved these for early pregnancies and it has approved them being delivered by mail. some states are going to seek to prevent their citizens from using those pills by mail. in a word it's unclear what the legal status of the fda's approval and its interaction with state attempts to ban these pills will look like in the courts. the idea is something called preemption. if there's a direct conflict between state and federal law, federal law is supposed to
pre-empt the state law. i presume the federal law will sue states claiming that the federal law basically supersedes the state law, but the supreme court is going to have to weigh in on this. it's a complex body of law and the supreme court is pretty hostile to abortion rights, so it's anybody's guess how that legal dispute will play out in the supreme court. >> planned parenthood said it's going to challenge the court, going to court to challenge utah's trigger law, how likely is that to succeed? >> what the united states supreme court decided in the dobbs decision on friday when it overturned roe was that federal constitution doesn't protect the right to abortion, but it didn't say anything about what state's constitution says. what planned parenthood is saying, the utah constitution protects a right to abortion.
even if the federal constitution doesn't. the u.s. supreme court doesn't get to control what the utah constitution means. that's for utah judges to decide, and that's a strategy that abortion advocates have used in other states, like in kansas, those courts have found state constitution protects the right to abortion. again, whatever the federal constitution is understood to do. that's where i think these legal fights are going to shift to, state courts and state constitutions. >> the fight is not over. kate, thank you so much for joining us. tune into a special edition of "this week" later this morning following that landmark supreme court ruling, martha raddatz goes one-on-one with south dakota governor kristi noem and senator elizabeth warren. leading voices on both sides of the issue on the future of reproductive rights in america. plus, january 6th committee member, representative jamie raskin on the latest from the hearings. and the breakthrough teal on guns. whit? now to ukraine where air strikes hit a residential neighborhood in kyiv. rescue missions going on as people were reported trapped in the rubble there.
abc spoke to city's mayor and joins us with more. tom, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, whit. look at the destruction out there. people were probably still asleep in their beds when the missiles rained down this morning, with president biden in erope, putin is ramping up his attacks on ukraine. this morning, a dramatic rescue operation on the top floor of this apartment bidding after a devastating missile strike in the heart of kyiv. rescue workers, incredibly someone is trapped. high in the rubble. we're just hearing a woman in her 30s is trapped, it's remarkable she survived. look at the damage to the top of the building. now, it's a race against time to get her out. and then this, the woman brought out, trapped for hours but conscious. she was living in kyiv, but this ukrainian official saying this is her russian passport, earlier a young girl also rescued from the building. local officials saying multiple rockets struck this area, one man is missing, feared dead. kyiv's mayor klitschko is accusing putin of targeting civilians and using the "g" word.
>> genocide of the ukrainian population. genocide of ukraine. >> reporter: hitting with dozen of missile strikes. putin seeming to send a message as president biden gathers with other g7 leaders. biden meeting the leader of germany. >> putin thinking that somehow nato and g7 would splinter but we haven't and we're not going to. >> reporter: ahead of a key nato summit with new countries sweden and finland hoping to join the alliance. russia is taking territory in its offensive in the east of ukraine, but this is the other side of putin's offensive in this country. civilian buildings are being hit and people are being killed every day across ukraine. eva. >> tom there for us in ukraine, thank you. now to texas and the final school massacre victim laid to rest in uvalde.
the funeral coming as more parents are speaking out about the police response to the shooting. and as hearings resume tomorrow. abc's marcus moore has more from dallas. >> reporter: a month later, kimberly and angel garcia are still yearning for answers. >> i just miss her. i just start talking about her and it's just so hard just to know that i don't have her anymore. >> reporter: 10-year-old amerie jo garza was one of the 19 children killed in uvalde, along with two of their beloved teachers. with so many other desperate parents her stepfather, a medic, quickly responding to calls at work that day at robb elementary. >> i don't understand how you can listen to those kids and not go save them. >> reporter: there are also calls for accountability over the law enforcement response to the massacre and since the shooting most of the focus has been put on the school district police chief arredondo, he's
defended his actions. he didn't consider himself the commanding officer on the scene that day. >> there's so many officers at that school and they're so busy trying to keep us away. >> what do you want us to know about amerie? >> that people knew they had a friend. >> reporter: angel writing this open letter to amerie after her death. >> i know with the talent you had you could have gone anywhere. it hurts me that i don't get to see who you would become. >> reporter: family members describe amerie this morning as a brave child and a natural protector. in fact she was trying to call 911 before she was shot and killed. this 10-year-old girl in final
moments was thinking of others. trying to help her friends and her teachers. guys? >> incredible. our hearts with those families and the community impacted. we're going to pivot now and marcus, thank you so much. we are going to pivot now and get a check of the weather. greg dutra from our station in chicago, wls, has a check of that. greg, how are you doing out there? >> doing pretty well this morning. really muggy morning after rainfall in the midwest yesterday. and they need the rain out west. check out this video. it's scary here as wildfires are really roaring in some spots. this is a brushfire. these firefighters had to fight back. look at how close that's to the fence. still bone dry out there. chino hit 104 degrees yesterday. ten states are in high heat alert again today. triple-digits all the way to portland. and wow, it is unbelievable. the south, high humidity going to push the heat index up to 115. but look at jackson, 105.
104 in shreveport. another hot one here in the the pacific northwest really hot, but the national weather service warning folks to take it easy when they get in those rivers and streams, the melt water only 50 degrees, so you can have shock going from the heat to can the cold. whit? >> okay. we'll watch the shock. greg, thank you so much. we'll turn to you in just a bit. turning now to travel outlook for the fourth of july
weekend. if this weekend's airport crowds are any indication it's going to be a very busy holiday. the tsa saying its screeners handled almost 2.5 million travelers on friday alone, the most before the pandemic. gio benitez has more on how you can beat the travel crush. >> reporter: the so-called summer of revenge travel is under way. more than 11 million people will take to the skies over the july 4th holiday and a record 42 million will hit the roads. >> far more people are going to go this year by car than ever before. that's surprising given how expensive it is with these high gas prices. >> reporter: but the holiday comes after weeks of travel chaos at airports, bad weather and staffing issues at u.s. airlines leading to thousands of cancellations, and it's a risk matt fall isn't willing to take, he's driving from cincinnati to orlando to avoid any travel headaches. >> i would rather have a guaranteed vacation than risk not having a vacation because my flight gets canceled. >> reporter: with gas averaging $5 a gallon nationwide, what
might a road trip cost? well just for gas, a road trip from new york city to miami could cost just over $270 round trip, now that doesn't include tolls and any overnight stays. roundtrip airfare on that same route could cost about a hundred dollars more. >> even with our increased gas prices right now, when you figure out how much you're spending on an airline ticket, compared to the amount of gas it takes to travel to that location, it might break even. >> reporter: experts say it's important to plan ahead, avoid heavy traffic by leaving early in day and the first flight out is the most likely to leave on time. but if you're worried your plans can change, travel insurance can provide some peace of mind. beth godwin runs a travel insurance company. >> travel insurance is designed to protect against the unforeseen and unexpected.
take a look at the benefits you're most interested in and what's excluded. >> reporter: remember, if your plans change your airlines still aren't charging for a change fee. so take advantage of that. in most cases you can rebook, get a voucher, and you'll only have to pay the difference in fare for the new flight. guys? >> all right, gio. thank you so much. alternatives to abortion following the historic supreme court decision, we'll look at the services available for women who carry their babies to term. and growing debt starting to be a major problem for many americans. the advice for your finances coming up. we'll be right back. fore treatir chronic migraine— 15 or more headache days a month, each lasting 4 hours or more you're not the only one with questions about botox®. botox® prevents headaches in adults with chronic migraine before they even start—with about 10 minutes of treatment once every 3 months. so, ask your doctor if botox® is right for you, and if a sample is available. effects of botox® may spread hours to weeks after injection

the current stonewall innkeepers. when did you guys acquire the stonewall inn? >> so what happened was, the stonewall is going under, we had to jump through hoops to get this together. at the time in 2006, it wasn't treated as the historical value that it had. we renovated it to look like the gay bar in the '60s. if it was legal. >> it's interesting. people all over the world know about the stonewall inn and what happened here. >> yes. since day one, every day there are people in that window taking pictures of stonewall. >> we worked really, really hard to educate a younger generation, to get the word back out there about what stonewall meant and what are our elders, our lgbtq elders did for us. >> it's for people where they come to mourn and where we come
to celebrate. we're the innkeepers of history, we wanted it out there. we wanted to treat it better. >> the stonewall inn is the original safe space, this is the place where everyone in the community came together even back in 1969. it's a living, breathing piece of history and i think we know we have that responsibility to keep it that way. >> what would you say >> what would you say to those people who are allies, how can they help? >> right, i would say vote. i mean, again the equality act, it's not been passed and that's an equality act that would on every level make sure that we are equal. there are still laws in states where we can't adopt. up until three years ago we could still be fired for being lgbtq. that was in 28 states and that is now finally law of the land. also, again, at the state level so many laws that are going against our community, so i would say get out and vote is really critical.
