12:02 pm
issue their ruling in june. i absolutely have to be out here because this is something that affects me so personally and, and hurt so much to know that has might be ripped away from me. right. right. i feel like i really don't have any way for like i don't, i can't have the, i'm born are human and we've been telling them in math to the tune of millions. and so i have no words or there's in plenty of reaction to the leaked draft with us house speaker nancy pelosi saying that if the report is accurate, the supreme court decision would go down as one of the worst and most damaging decisions in modern history. she said it would be the greatest restriction on of rights in the past, 50 years, not just on women. on the republican side, the senate for arkansas, tom cotton says, the supreme court and the department of justice must get to the bottom of this leak . he adds roe v wade was gregory slee wrong from the beginning,
12:03 pm
and i pray the court follows the constitution and allows the states to once again protect unborn life. several conservative states have recently joined a growing push to restrict abortions. oklahoma, the governor has signed a near total band. the only exception is a medical emergency. kentucky has banned the procedure after 15 weeks of pregnancy though, the law is yet to come into effect. it could force a said to remaining abortion providers to close texas that lot abortion after 6 weeks, one woman was arrested for murder after allegedly carrying out a south induce abortion though the charges were later dropped. peter matthews. he's a professor of american government and political theory. he says, if the abortion law is overturned, it will cause a politically divisive earthquake across the us. there's never been a draft really ever leak before. ruling can change in the process before they make the final. the final ruling and vote which could happen a few months from now,
12:04 pm
weeks from now. so this is very unusual and it is. the court does allow the states to ban abortion will be even a double, or people will believe major political repression and human repercussions. we will be up to the states to the side and we got the telephone. you will keep illegal here. but other states like texas and others, the read space are pretty. the $21.00 states are waiting with legislation, be the restrict motion for the bed and all together. right? enough is point waiting for this kind of a decision. and the leak is actually cautioned everyone now and what woke up because we had a sense and it's cause a lot more attention in division, but it has to be exposed to what's really going on here. so we're in very precarious terms, right? this in this case really definitely affects in the midst of that are coming up in june primaries and november general action. because many, many women as friends of women are supportive of choice for women to make will be galvanized voting and deciding more people in the congress that will pledge to keep
12:05 pm
abortion legal. would pledge to actually make sure that that's a lot federal law that we're trying to, they're looking for this is this particular decision has actually made sure that more people tried to vote on both sides. but i think why maybe some numbers, 66 percent of american people oppose overturning will be weight. well, the 30 percent support overturning it, so that division is gonna show up the election coming up. and early i spoke to shana, so want to as a politician and a member of seattle city council, she says pro abortion activists need to go on the offensive. the people who are outside the supreme court are saying this. the victory on roby wade in 1973, was a landmark historic victory for abortion rights. and if this is undermined, then it will be a historic setback, and that is why we have no alternative, but to push back against it. we need mass protest. i completely disagree with a legal, you know, you called will be wait a decision that invented a right mention nobody in the constitution. let's keep in mind,
12:06 pm
this was the constitution under which slavery was legal, and only wealthy white men had the right to vote. so let's not bad as i can thank. let's hold human rights a psychos then. and let's also keep in mind that merely do hold of americans today support will be waived and 72 percent of americans oppose overturning adobe rate. and in fact, support for the supreme court has fallen dramatically by 515 percentage point to the last 2 years. if you look at history here, we wade itself was one in the 1st place to mass p. s a working people. and in fact the supreme court rend ruby reed was one in 1973 was also majority republican. in fact, 5 of the 7 justices who would say abortion rights about i'm really public and, and yet women and working people, adults i wanted because it was mysterious pressure of mass movements during a time when we had the anti walk. good, right? environmental and civil rights movement. it's
12:07 pm
