a fetal heartbeat is detectable at about 6 weeks of gestation. are now illegal in texas. that's before most women even know they're pregnant. i don't think that, you know, men should like politicians should be making the decision like the decision of what i can and can't do with my body. and i think everyone like every woman should have the right to decide when they want to have kids and how they want to have kids. and how many together the texas law took effect in september. the bill that i'm about to sign that ensures that the life of every unborn child who has a heartbeat will be saved from the ravages of abortion. the law offers of financial reward to private citizens who successfully sue anyone who performs or enables and abortion in texas. doctors, nurses, even over drivers are at risk of civil penalties. attorney elizabeth meyer says she

too could be route for representing abortion clinics by the letter of the law. i am in violation of it and the laws are constitutional. so it's not really a long one. might bring it a few 1000 people had gathered at the texas state capital to protest the ban. they call it unconstitutional and resulting and women being forced to continue with unwanted pregnancies or having to travel to other states for abortions if they can afford it. but eventually, abortions may be banned in all states. that's the fear of marchers who also rallied saturday in washington and other major u. s. cities. they worry, the country supreme court is poised to overturn roe vs wade. the landmark case that gave american women the right to an abortion in 1973, julia kirkland says she had an abortion years ago when doctor said her fetus had
3:04 am
a fatal medical condition. that same procedure would be illegal in texas to day. there is a very real risk that my uterus would have ruptured if i weren't allowed to have the abortion. and although my life might have been saved, i could never have had children after that, she went on to become a mother of 3 by choice. she says she hopes other women will be able to decide for themselves as well. i to jo castro, al jazeera austin, texas, with us from baltimore. maryland is one a brook. so civil rights attorney and the founding partner at brooks law, l. l. c. thank you for joining us today. i want to clear up something 1st for our international audience. that is the difference between state and federal law in the united states because people might be thinking, well, if rosie white is there and it is settled law, as one of the supreme court justices said, how is it that it's under a threat from not just texas but other states
3:05 am
i'm not sure one can hear us one of brooks. come on to maria here and tell you how can you hear me? hi. yes, i can hear you. oh, we've got you. well, we're having fun today. right. sorry. i wanted to clear up something with you for, again, for our international audience, and that's the idea of state and federal law in the united states. if roe v wade is settled law as one supreme court just to said then how is it under threat from texas and perhaps other states? i'm sure sure. so if that's an excellent question and but basically what, what texas has done and what is still up in the air, because we don't know how the federal judge will rule is that they have passed a law that in essence, bands abortion in the state of texas and they've done that by getting around least what the federal argument is arguing is they're getting around what wrote the wages already established. and the united states constitution, which of course, is
3:06 am
a pretty big hill to climb up on. but in essence, what they've done in texas is to make it incumbent on private citizens and to empower them to, to file a lawsuit against abortion providers. and so it a seem on face value itself perhaps in conflict. but senate bill 8, which is the texas law in texas, would argue that it isn't and that they have the right to do it. but of course the justice department hasn't talked to them and they have sought a declaratory judgment. and their argument is that, in fact, it does violate the supremacy clause and the amendment of the us constitution. when you say the protests that have happened today, shared numbers, right across the united states, do you feel it will make a difference in the, in that the supreme court, but justices at state level will hear this?
3:07 am
well, you know it. so i do think it will make a difference as far as the dialogue and as far as continuing to keep attention on the subject matter of course, and for all of those who are passionate about it. but will it make a difference as to why the supreme court may ultimately do, or the judge that is currently dealing with the lawsuit brought by the justice department? that's difficult to say, you know, ideally, or typically it shouldn't make a difference as far as in the court of public opinion because of course, judges are supposed to be neutral. however, as we saw from the supreme court last month when they, when they failed due, or rather they chose not to now to hear, you know, whether or not that they should interfere with the texas law. and it was a $5.00 to $4.00 vote. and what, what we did see though, is that they did leave a door open to the possibility that they may in fact, entertain hearing from us, the justice department and making a ruling on this in the future. so to go back to your question, i, you know,
3:08 am
again on face value, theoretically it shouldn't make a difference to judicial officers were supposed to be neutral. but do i think the court of public opinion has carries weight? of course it does. of course it does. and people have been extremely vocal and are very passionate about this issue. one of it's great to get your thoughts on this issue. thank you for talking to us today. if you for having me, the united nation has one migrant was killed and at least 15 others injured. when libyan security forces detained, at least 4000 refugees and migrants. hundreds of women and children were amongst those rounded up in the crack. down in the western town of got to got ash about 12 kilometers outside of the capitol. officials described it as a security campaign against illegal migration and drug trafficking. got as a known hub for migrants and refugees has sought a press the on the who is a migration and asylum program officer at your him at rights. he says the situation is deteriorating for both micro out at sea and in the detention centers. expression
3:09 am
of my guns in detention center for women and children. but for all my guns it's becoming more and more worrying. we know that we have been high and use of violence and is very difficult that people can go out from the center. and when they reach to go out and take the c, they are recipe the c and broke back. so that is why i'm thinking about the violence. the only solution now is to all can legal patch when the how and that money part in corridor that can lead people go out from libya and reach that will be entitled 3 in a face way or there why people, we say in the pension, suffering the treatment and they, when the will be able to leave believe yeah, that would be interesting and send back. i think that's a clear example. approve of this question as the tragic libya is the fact that recently a few days ago, only libya in london with
3:10 am
a story arrived at both with more than 6 people in like fish, bo bailey, with 600. we don't have seen such a rival with so many people from 2013. this question is becoming warning and war both in the central med and pur people the cane in detention center. it that these 20 people were arrested and 5 injured and clashes between pro an anti migrant demonstrators in 3 cities, cities across chile. some protesters carried banners attacking the united notions for demanding should i provide basic humanitarian services for the thousands of undocumented migrants entering the country. c, newman reports when the capital santiago, chile is foot chilion screen. this man, it was a small but passionate demonstration in front of chillies presidential palace called to protest against what these people describe as an invasion from undocumented immigrants. melacy telling me that we are against those who come here illegally

3:12 am
to venezuelan migrants who were living in squalor in a plaza in the northern city of vicky gate some describe these protest who's as fascists that they call themselves patriots. i've just had to leave this on the finding my own contributor. oh, there is a good one. not at this level. i believe this way. as they demonstrated across the street, a nervous street sweeper a migrant rushed past. chili's government says and wants to port all undocumented migrants, but it is doing little or nothing to stop them from coming in. and it is not yet providing humanitarian shelters and aid for men, women, and children who have nowhere to go when they get here. while many chileans feel compassion and solidarity towards the migrants, demonstrations like this one while small are a reflection of growing intolerance towards undocumented and impoverished migrant sushi this country. as their only hope to see in human al jazeera santiago,

3:17 am
he won't stand for vice president in next year's elections. the constitution prevents to territory from standing for president again. and he says there was overwhelming public sentiment that running fort vice president would violate the spirit of the constitution. some thoughts from criselda. yelp is now a journalist and author based in manila who says she thinks it's too early to believe to tirty. it's really hard to tell because this statement is so well crafted and it doesn't sound a lot like him. and so it's, you know, i would take this with a lot of skepticism and you never really know until the last day of the filing of the candidacy and even wait until november to see if you might, you know, there might be a switch of candidates. so it's, it's, it's really a matter of time. i mean, but i wouldn't like hold my breath and it's really, you know, just waiting to see whether he's going to do it or not. it's written in a very, very clean statement. normally when this, when the president says something he says during his night time addresses so,
3:18 am
and he comes out very well, then use about things. but this one it's, it's a statement. it's a written statement. so we don't really know what's behind it. what made him do it on, would it is there like, you know, an agenda behind it? would there be other interpretations to it? it's really very hard to know until, you know, like i said, the last day comes a bombing at a wedding in the african province of jose. john has killed at least one person. reportedly it was the bride, the attack targeted a wedding hole local sources of told on to 05 others were injured. on a ton of on official says, an attack on the east and city of july about as killed to civilians and to taliban fighters. the group has been targeted by several bombings in the city in the past month. i. so k is based in the region and is suspected of being behind them. while

the taliban is reiterated at school for the united states, to stop drone operations over afghan as space calling it a violation of last year's dough har agreement in an interview with alger 0, the groups, foreign affairs spokesman said washington's actions breached international deer. violation off our territorial integrity of afghanistan. it is a blatant and a clear violation, or it is against the commitments that the united states of america made dirt in the doha agreement. that though her agreement clearly stipulates her there to the united states and or other countries as well, its allies will not interfere in an internal affairs offer up with understand they are not only violating their own commitments, but they are also violating international law. the results of cut has 1st ever legislative council election have been announced. 30 members have been elected to
3:20 am
the 45 member. sure. a council. the rest will be appointed directly by the countries emir. no women, they're elected to the representative council despite $27.00 running in the pulse boat to turn up at $63.00 and a half percent. jemila shell reports from here and do her for the 1st time in their lives. lotteries. have chosen who will represent them when it comes to drafting the country's laws and monitoring the government's performance. on saturday, thousands across the small peninsula took to one of 30 different polling stations in the nation's 1st ever legislative elections. no, as long as he learned that it closed on man. and this is a broader baker, as only they can have a chance to talk with you about the year for us. this is a democratic ceremony bits new and modern for guitar, and every one is participating in this council. as important for the citizen and the state. until now, the sort of council has been an advisory body appointed solely by the amir, with limited powers. however, in its new form,
3:21 am
2 thirds of its is elected by the people and it'll have the ability to draft laws, approve or reject budgets and even question and sack ministers after the 2017. the other of located the crisis, i believe, are that the political maturity among the country people been raised very, very carefully and very mature, to the extent that it's not about that other people are, you know, asking for such your election. even though we've been listening to some voices from the elite people, however, it's more about top button approach that being supported and initiated by, by the, the, the political leadership. unlike other countries in the region that have witnessed mass protests in uprisings demanding a change in governance, the move towards greater representation and cut out, it has been driven by the leadership. despite this top down dr to a more inclusive political system, the turn out in saturdays polls indicate that many and cut our own favor of having a greater c with no political parties in the gulf states. the new legislators are
3:22 am
expected to come under greater individual scrutiny issues such as labor, law reforms, economic policy, and who gets to take part in future elections will be some of the defining topics for when the shorter counsel gets to work. some countries have already complained about being left out of the electoral process. for many countries, these shorter electrons are not simply about the results with people now given a see as to who represents them. every one is a winner. widening participation and empowering different sections of society, underscore squatters, branding as a country that has often positioned itself differently to its neighbors when it comes to political pluralism and freedom of expression. jamal shall al jazeera, though ha, now joined european and japanese space mission to mercury has sent back its 1st images of the planet. becky colombo mission has made the 1st of 6 fly bies of the planet using the planets gravity to slow the spacecraft down
3:23 am
a launched in 2018 and will soon release 2 probes into mercury's orbit to study the planets. so it will began 3 years ago when the baby columbo mission was launched from the european spaceport in guyana. but this is a long process. it takes its time. what we have here is that an animation of the in a solar system, the sun right at the middle of there. and we're looking here at the orbit of the planet's earth. is the blue line. and then you've got the inner lines, the red line, venus, and mercury, the gray in the middle. so you can see the prob, marked by the x. they are slowly moving in year by year, actually took one and a half years to get through. it's all but 3 is to get to the point of venus and now getting closer and closer into mercury's orbit. and as we said, the 1st of 6 fly buys before it is right day close to mercury was. we're going to talk to dr. political bands about this, his director, director ameritas at the center for remote sensing at boston university, but it was also former secretary of the lunar landing site selection committee at
3:24 am
nasa. joining us from washington d. c. lovely to have you with us, dr. what do you think of those images, and are there any, the 1st ones? but what did you think of what you saw? my affinity, and really who wonderful because of the fact that we use the gravitational pull of mercury to pretty serious craft in grocer enough. so that we can see the pictures and we have not been there for a very long time. the only to missions there's it's america before. so we're expecting a great deal of information. what is the, what is there to learn about mercury. why? why? mercury on our mouth has always been a fascination because it was seen as the place which perhaps could have held life mercury. so close to the sun. obviously, it's not going to be a place where life is sustainable. what is they to lundy think? no, no, no, no, no way that we would have a life because it's to close the of this and as you said, and when you do not know whether ever there was any water on the planet surface,
3:25 am
we know that that is probably some lift over water tiny amounts in the polar regions that and 80 as that never see the effect. but we're not sure about that. and we hope that this mission were give us some some look at whether or not that is a little bit of water in the regions where they'd never see that sense. so they're always, but of course, freezing cold not to plenty of moves that hours up there on the sand very fast. it is, it's here is only $88.00 days and $88.00 days it rotates all around the sun. so it is, it's very different from the other planets and we would know we need to know what, what it is made of, how did it develop, whether it has a reputation of 3 and or not. and all of these says different things. so we understand something about that is to this, or is it. so do you think this is a worthwhile endeavor by the european and the japanese? i'm sure you, you would think that most space exploration is,
3:26 am
isn't worthwhile thing, but is it is, is it targeted? is it given that as a say so much focuses on places like like, miles and, and, and returning to the moon. even every mission makes us the, or learn something new. and every mission we use something new from the scientific point of view and all of the, the technology that we're using. so that technology to use. and the science that we use in all of these missions helps us greatly. like for instance, the fact that i am talking to you and you are cashing or to see me in from where you are and then people are in door. huh. i can see that that means a huge thing that he would say about of how did it come about or live from space nation because we needed to do this wise as the us rid of the lunar surface. so the developments that we can figure out for these missions with help us greatly in our lives. no question about fair point. final question, and i think this is one of those things which people who may be want to ask,
3:27 am
but don't want to sound stupid. i have no issue sounding stupid, personally, once a machine like this ends, what happens to the probe once it's done, all it's fly buys and the mission is declared over then what happens to that, that, that a credible piece of technology. all of these probes either crash and to the body that they intended to savvy or continue to or with that body spirit with forever. and that's perfectly okay. because after doing the division after conveying all the science that we need that said it made, would you give it that salute and it can stay in orbit with no, with no, nothing to do. it's 50. ok, thanks. have a great talking to you. i really enjoyed that. thank you so much for your time today. thank you. climate activists clash with police in milan as environmental ministers met ahead of a key united nations conference. the scuffles happen during the global march for
3:28 am
climate justice, which so activists calling on governments to take more ambitious steps to cut carbon emissions and tackle the climate crisis. international delegates have been meeting in milan to see what progress can be made before the cop 26th climate in glasgow. next month. we have kept 1.5 degrees within reach. and as i said, that was a clear view that was coming across at this meeting. i think in terms of the g 20, we've always said that they represent 80 percent of global emissions around 85 percent of the global economy. and therefore, what the g 20 does absolutely matches were been keeping an eye on the volcano in la palmer. in fact, that's a live shot of it. now, looking, particularly angry as to be said and authorities are urging people les to limit the time they spend outdoors. the company via volcano continues to spew. laverne thick clouds of black smoke. you fishes have been opening up as well,
3:29 am
giving rise to more eruptions. sandra earthquakes, jonah hull, has more from near the volcano in la palmer. and i've said all along this is an unpredictable event, this rupture, and it is constantly evolving the bucket ologist of war, people to expect anything at any time. and so it has proven in the past few days, let me step out of the way so that you can have a closer look at this extraordinary view of an erupting volcano. here you can see the lava spewing high into the air, the new event that was opened on thursday night is now in full flow. it's been described as a new focus of the erupt units emitting more liquid, foster flowing lava, which is now heading off in a new lava stream, a new direction towards the north. it's expected that the topography of the mountain side will eventually lead it round in a loop to join the original lava stream heading down to the sea. but the water is that in the creation of that loop around it takes in more property,
3:30 am
potentially more buildings. and infrastructure in a spot that we know that over night there were more buildings that did come in gulf by the lava, although at this point were told, houses are not on the threat. the head of the local government in a press conference described it as worrying. he said this meant more drama ahead. potentially more people who would need to be helped. there are no current plans for further evacuation, but of course the worry will be that among the 6000 people already evacuated at that at least some of them may in the coming days. and i was lose some of their property or potentially their homes. ah, half off the hour on al jazeera, these are the top stories more than $600.00 marches, had taken place across the united states to defend women's reproductive rights.
