3:34 pm
services, clinics are trying to prepare for a flood of new patients. >> if every state that touches illinois suddenly has no access, we project even up to a five-times increase in patient demand, especially at our health centers that border other states. >> reporter: many of those out-of-state patients would be seen virtually and sent abortion pills, but those are also in jeopardy. at least 17 states have now introduced legislation to ban or restrict access to the pills. michigan's democratic attorney general dana nessel worries is it could happen in her state. >> whether it's by medication, whether it's surgeical, it doesn't matter. abortion will be illegal in our state, period. >> reporter: meanwhile, here at the white house, plans for a new press secretary. karine jean-pierre is set to become the first black person, first openly gay person to serve in the role. she's set to succeed jen psaki, who is stepping down next friday. norah. >> o'donnell: ed o'keefe, thank yoclfo fst
3:35 pm
on.viesince thaaf says e csequences of overturning "roe v wade" would go beyond abortion rights. >> this is about controlling women. this is about turning the clock back on half the population of our country. >> o'donnell: in the 2016 campaign, donald trump made it clear he would nominate justices who would overturn "roe v wade." did you imagine it would happen this quickly? >> i warned about it in the campaign. i could see that the man i was running against would literally do anything to get the votes of the extreme faction of the republican party who were willing to totally upend precedent and deny women their rights. so i did warn about it. but, you know, it's hard to warn in the abstract. and i think a lot of people said, "that will never happen. nobody will do that." this pb is dark. it is incredibly dan just abouts
3:36 pm
right to choose. it is about much more than that. and i hope people now are fully aware of what we're up against. because the only answer is at the ballot box to elect people who will stand up for every american's rights, and any american who says, "look, i'm not a woman. this distribute affect me. i'm not black that doesn't affect me. i'm not gay, that doesn't affect me. once you allow this kind of extreme power to take hold, you have no idea who they will come for next. >> o'donnell: it was nearly 30 years ago when hillary clinton famously said that phrase, and today eats led to this-- the opening of the first-ever global embassy for women. alyse nelson is the president and c.e.o. of the nonpartisan vital voices. >> it's certainly not lost on me that we are opening the doors to this global embassy for women's leadership at the same time that the rights that, quite frankly, i was born into, are now being rolled back. i think we need a global embassy because we need permanence.
3:37 pm
if you look around, there wen g. aking women, iding herriend, madeleine albright, the first female secretary of state. and i know you're thinking of madeleine albright on this day. >> madeleine and i were the cofounders of vital voices all those years back. and itrted as a dream that we could create a group that would keep the emphasis on women's issues and women's rights going forward. >> o'donnell: it's 2022. >> yes, it is. >> o'donnell: why are there still so few women in leadership positions in politics? >> it is so difficult to be in the public arena as a woman. and there is a double standard. let's be very clear about that. women are judged much more harshly to sustain the continuing pressure of being a woman in the public arena, you have to believe you're doing it for something bigger than just
3:38 pm
yourself. >> o'donnell: and we will have more of our interview tomorrow on "cbs mornings" and on there are breaking news regarding the safety of a popular covid vaccine. the news comes as the c.d.c. says confirmed covid cases are on the rise in 44 states as the u.s. closes in on a milestonon mlion covid deaths. here is cbs' nikki battiste. >> reporter: tonight, the f.d.a. now says it is limiting the use of johnson & johnson's single-dose covid vaccine to adults who can't get any other covid shot because of a rare but potentially life-threatening risk of blood clots, just as another omicron subvariant has swept in. from the northeast, where covid cases are up nearly 160%, to the west, a 200% spike in los angeles county. the question is what lies ahead? >> we have our eye on the south. when people spend more time

3:40 pm
inflation and preventing a recession mount. the dow, nasdaq, and s&p all plummeted today with investors worried that the federal reserve's plan to fight inflation could slow the economy. the sell-off came just one day after the best trading day in two years on wednesday. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here. glad you're here, jill. good evening. what's causing the volatility? >> reporter: well, investors are worried that for the first time in 40 years, the fed is actually raising interest rates after inflation has already increased substantially. so the fear is that the central bank will either not be able to get inflation down quickly enough to steady the economy, or that they go too fast and trigger a recession. it's like the fed is driving a speeding car. they're tapping on the brakes and trying to slow it down over the next couple of years. if they don't get it right, the car-- our u.s. economy-- could veer off that road and land in a recessionary ditch. >> o'donnell: let's hope they do get it right. ally tho areorri reement?t k s helpful to

3:45 pm
atever carav the doneo in the pashe repeats,a quarter million troops." and i just turned squarely around to him, faced him and say, "i don't have a quarter million troops to send on some ridiculous mission to the border." and i told this story to general milley and my chief of staff. i said, "let's be safe. let's just check and make sure that this isn't being worked somewhere in the building." and milley comes back days later, and the door opens up, and he's waving a document in his hands, and he says something like, "secretary, you're not going to believe this." and that's when he explains to me that, yes, they were working, that we had developed a plan, initial concept of how this might happen. and i was just flabbergasted that not only was the idea proposed that people, people in my department, remember working on it. >> o'donnell: what would have been the implications if we had sent 250,000 active-duty u.s. troops to the border? >> it's just so absurd. i can't even consider. i mean, again, we don't have
