>> you worked in boston . >> i worked there for six years. because it has that name for a week, a good amount of people will not write that. what is happening at 5:30 . >> we are following the protest. one is happening in surface. many are happening across the country and here. abortion is no more. the supreme court overturned roe versus wade. this has been the law of the land for 50 years . >> it is a sad day. >> the right to life has been vindicated. >> i should not be worried about my rights being taken away from me. >> we are covering how this
ruling will impact millions of americans. the news at 5:30, thank you for joining us . >> this is an emotional night in the bay area. today the supreme court overturning the ruling from 1973. that made abortion legal in the united states. this has triggered protests from the supreme court's to here in san francisco. you can see this march at city hall. take a look at this demonstration. many people are turning this rally. you can see, there is more than a couple of thousand of people. it seems to be growing. >> let's take a look at the live crowd outside of the u.s.
supreme court. they have been out there all day. demonstrators have been there. we mentioned earlier, definitely, our emotions are high in washington, d.c. and across the country. we have the latest on today's historic ruling. this right was established 50 years ago. >> reporter: women's health, taking a serious blow. this was a highly anticipated decision. the justices on the high court sided with the mississippi law that bans almost all abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. it protected a woman's ride to have an abortion for over half a century . >> now, people do not have self- determination. >> reporter: there was outrage and celebration . >> they wanted chocolate with
vanilla ice cream. >> reporter: there were hundreds of protesters to the supreme court. president biden weighed in . >> the health and life of the women in this nation are now at risk. >> reporter: this was written by justice samuel alito. they said it was wrong and damaging. this work could tell women's rights and their status as equal citizens. 13 states are preparing for trigger laws to take effect . >> the right to light has been vindicated. >> 50 years of policy, forcing women across the nation to
rethink reproductive, healthcare options. there are legal and political ramifications to this ruling. there is definitely an impact on women's and families. it is a monumental night. 50 years of a constitutional right being overturned. how common or uncommon is it? >> this is very uncommon. what we are talking about is the decision that stands, and less there is a reason to change it. there was no reason to change this law that has been on the books for about 50 years. first of all, the senate confirmation hearing was a champ for the nominees. specifically for brett kavanaugh and neil m gorsuch .
they lied. they were under oath when they said it. they did quite the opposite. history repeats. we had a civil war. the states were divided. with this decision it is a legal civil war. we have a country that is a divided. some support abortions. just like the civil war we had an underground railroad. we will smuggle women from the states that ben abortions to a place where they can be free and make reproductive decisions. >> reporter: judge clarence thomas suggested other cases should be looked out. we are talking about contraceptives and same-sex marriage. is that on the table? >> he is putting out there, i'm
sure the majority of the conservatives were thinking of. the next rights will be attacked. he plainly said they were unconstitutional. they were not in the constitution when the framers put together the constitutional. he did not talk about interracial marriage. he did not mention it. the person he is married to his white. it has nothing to do but the rule of law which is the foundation of the system of law. it has been talked about. >> reporter: correct me if i am wrong, this is not the rule of the people. most people favor women's right
to choose. how did this happen today? >> the polling is one thing. the court's actions are another. we act on what we see in the constitution. we do not see anything about the right to choose. it is not anywhere. the ninth amendment talks about the quality and protection of the law. as much as 85% of the public say a woman should have a right to choose. abortion should be legal. things like, woman's health. this decision gets rid of all of it potentially if the states want to go in that direction. 13 states are ready to go now.
15 states are ready to go in the next few weeks. we already have a civil war going on with gun control. there is a simple war going on. there is divide in the nation. >> reporter: is this a republican issue or a democrat issue? >> it is all of those. if you are an evangelical, it is a happy day. not all democrats are liberal. it cuts through all of the issues. at the end of the day, some will go in one direction and some like california and new york will say we will take care of anyone that needs an abortion. this type of division, which i
find so interesting. the reason for this decision is to end the rift. >> reporter: what is the next step? what is the next step for people that are pro-abortion? >> congress could been a law nationwide. the only way for this to be addressed is for people to vote. the people in office, people that support that support the right of women, to have decision-making in their healthcare. to finally say, there was one
word missing. there were three justices dissented. normally they say we respectfully dissent. they kept out the word, respectfully. that is a big deal. the cord that arose the country is seriously divided . >> thank you for your time and your insight with us this evening. coming up, nightly news goes to mississippi. that is the state at the center of today's ruling. we will hear from a leader in mississippi, her goal is to offer support to pregnant women. >> people will suffer more. >> there are 30 pregnancy
