3:31 am
incredibly dangerous and warned that more could be at risk than just abortion rights. we'll have more of our interview with secretary clinton in just a minute. but first, ed o'keefe will start us off from the white house. good evening, ed. >> good evening, norah. that draft majority opinion on the future of abortion rights continues to reverberate nationwide, and now there are growing concerns about the potential for political violence against the supreme court justices themselves. the supreme court under lockdown. eight-foot-high fencing now surrounds the building. all entry points are blocked to vehicles. and more officers on patrol. a scene reminiscent of what washington looked like after the january 6 attacks. the nine justices are also under heavier security. cbs news has learned general threats of violence against them are up. their home locations have been shared online, and they're receiving more targeted personal phone threats. justice samuel alito, author of the leaked majority opinion, canceled a scheduled appearance today in nashville. the other justices are also

3:34 am
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 would say oh, that will never happen, but nobody will do that. this opinion is dark. it is incredibly dangerous, and it is not just about a woman's 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 doesn't 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. >> reporter: it was nearly 30 years ago when hillary clinton famously said that phrase, and today it's led to this, the

3:36 am
>> yes. >> 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 yourself. there is some breaking news tonight regarding the safety of a popular covid vaccine. the news comes as the cdc says confirmed cases are on the rise in 44 states. as the u.s. closes in on a grim milestone, one million covid deaths. here is cbs' nikki battiste. >> reporter: tonight the fda 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.
