9:03 am
fears are growing for some that if the supreme court does overturn roe versus wade, it may next go after other privacy rights, including same sex marriage. legal experts emphasize. this is a draft document that was leaked earlier this week, not a final ruling. but if the underlying legal arguments remain in the majority opinion, they say it could represent a fundamental shift in the courts interpretations. law professors say justice alito's draft says rights are only protected if they're mentioned in the constitution. but legal experts point out there are many rights that have been protected by the high court. that don't meet that criteria. the right to marry the right to procreate the right to custody of one's children the right to keep the family together. the right appearance, control the upbringing, their children the right to purchase and use contraceptives. legal experts say that passed courts have seen those rights and others as protected under the 14th amendment, with a right to privacy experts say justice
9:04 am
alito's opinion would leave abortion up to state and federal lawmakers. governor gary gavin newsom has made it very clear that if the supreme court overturns roe v. wade, california would protect abortion rights. if roe versus wade is overturned, california is one of just 15 states that currently has abortion rights protections that are in place, according to a public policy poll out last summer. more than three quarters of california adults do not want to see the landmark ruling overturned. during his address, and l. a. newsome spent some time criticizing those who oppose abortion rights. every single one of these folks that are out there, trumpeting and championing this decision have consistently opposed prenatal care support. consistently opposed childcare consistently opposed paid family leave consistently opposed all things to actually strengthen the family. a southern california state senator is already
9:05 am
announced she will introduce a constitutional amendment and the governor says he will support it will chambers in the state legislature would approve the language of the amendment by a two thirds majority before the end of june. democrats hold enough seats to make that happen. it would go on the november ballot to be voted on this fall. the number of covid infections is growing again. ktvu is amended. quintana is live in san jose this morning. many health professionals there are concerned because of cinco de mayo and mother's day coming up, amanda yeah, that's right. and i know it's something that none of us want to hear again. but we are going into 1/6 wave of covid infections here in santa clara county public health officer said that they didn't have that much of a break after the big omicron surge that we saw and this last month, cases and transmission rates have been rising again. dr monica gandhi and infectious disease expert at ucsf says we're seeing this rise because of a highly
9:06 am
transmissible sub variant that's here. health experts say. you can think of it as a grandchild of all macron, more contagious than the original omicron variant. but it's not more deadly or severe. is it? probably the most transmissible omicron variant we've seen to date. we are in a phase of the pandemic that will never going to get rid of cases are hospitalizations are staying low, and we also want to get back to life. so think of this as kind of your own risk calculation time at the pandemic. dr gandhi says hospitalizations are low because so many people here in the bay area are vaccinated and boosted here in san jose. more than 90% of those eligible are vaccinated , but data shows hospitalizations here are starting tiktok up a bit right now. the advice this weekend if you're going to see your mom or your grandma, is that those who are um you know, compromise should wear a mask indoors. and she says, if you are over, 70 you have access. you are
9:07 am
eligible for that second booster. so she recommends you take advantage of that. really. the main message is that the pandemic is not over. covid is unfortunately here to stay, but there are a lot of ways that we can deal with it, especially when doing stuff like gathering this weekend. live in san jose. amanda quintana ktvu fax. tunis amanda. thank you all this week . we've been diving into the repercussions of what appears to be a supreme court poised to overturn the landmark roe versus wade decision on abortion. next year. on the nine we examine how the change would affect black women, in particular, their concerns and the action so many are taking next, plus. as protests continue over the possible overturning of roe v. wade new security measures are being taken and lauren blanchard outside the supreme court.

look at your weather. steve is front and center and a gaza you were called, coming into work today short sleeve shirt for the first time ever coming, and i'm like, what am i doing? don't do that tomorrow. if you're coming in, frank, don't yes, i'll be here. good knowledge by the way of the tao eatery. i got more lago kingdoms. he's got a lot to lot cooler. no doubt about it. it was jacket weather is garcia was quick to point out as well. you can see the systems coming in. there's low clouds, high clouds and an onshore breeze. drizzle probably next couple of mornings had some in the higher elevations this morning. you can see that as well. so we are looking for a cooler forecast, probably for about the next six or seven days. fifties sixties and seventies on the temps breezy to windy first of many systems beginning to make its move. not much for the this system, but a lot of cloud cover and there's a series of systems coming across. one will deepen big time for may over us on sunday and monday. that will be our best opportunity to get any rain and it looks like some serious snow. i mean, there
9:11 am
could be 6 to 12 inches by the time we get the money night or tuesday. 50 60 seventies and not a big change on friday. then it all starts to cool down. maybe some thunderstorms and cool and windy patterns. send him money, you guys the mystery over who leaked the draft opinion from the supreme court is baffling the nation's capital, and it also raised concerns over security for the court ahead of a final ruling lauren blanchard reports from outside the supreme court. the supreme court, now behind a wall of fencing has emotions remain high over the leaked draft opinion, suggesting the justices may overrule roe v. wade. in the middle of the night, workers put up non scalable fencing and pro choice activists plan to protest outside the d. c area homes of the six conservative justices publishing their addresses online. senator john cornyn filed a bill wednesday to give justices and their families around the clock security protection. my sense is that this leak was a strategically planned one primarily to try to intimidate these justices of the
9:12 am
draft was a historic first. so it's unclear exactly how far the investigation will go into who did it. my concern really isn't hunting down. my concern is making sure that this does not go through great upset in authority, and i believe that there does need to be district repercussions on the leaker. chief justice john roberts test the marshal of the court to find the leaker, but some in congress are calling for other agencies like the justice department to get involved. the problem is the draft wasn't classified information, and there is unlikely to be any criminal charges. obviously, it's up to the department of justice to determine what if any action they will take. our focus is on highlighting um what? what what the content in there would risk put at risk for women across the country. the final ruling by the supreme court isn't expected until june or july. it is unclear of the fencing will stay in place until then. in washington. lauren blanchard,
9:13 am
ktvu, fox two news. reaction has been swift and strong to that leak that shows the u. s. supreme court could be poised to overturn the landmark roe v. wade decision by many accounts, black women in particular, have the most to lose if abortion protections are removed. this has been a topic of deep discussion on fox sold the streaming channel, particularly on the black report. we welcome as we do every week, the host of the black report demi lobo to our conversation. thanks for being with us yet again, another great thursday, checking in with you so very happy to be here. important news here is 26 states , mostly in the south and midwest are expected to quickly bad abortion if the high court does overturn roe v. wade. according to the kaiser family foundation in mississippi. people of color comprised 44% of the population, but 81% of women receiving abortions in alabama, the numbers are similar. one active. one activist said that abortion restrictions are racist. what do your viewers have to say? absolutely so. another quick fact to add in
9:14 am
here is that black women? we have abortions five times the rate that of white women. and so we're having abortions and much higher rates than our white counterparts. and so there has to be taken into consideration when we talk about abortions because a lot of abortions activists are arguing right now that abortions are being marketed to low income areas and areas where it's usually black and latino. and so, with this new draft that's leaked here. a lot of people are worried. about trigger laws, which we're talking about on fox was black report, which if roe versus wade is overturned, there are so many states that are ready to abolish abortions immediately. and so what's going to happen when you overturn roe versus wade and abortions disappear? women are still going to have to get abortions. but what's going to happen is that they're going to do them illegally. and they're just like i don't know if you got it got a chance to see what goldberg's emotional statement that she made on abortion that they're still going to get abortions were still going to get abortions, but they're going
9:15 am
to be way more illegal in way more unsafe, and that's definitely something to think about and on that note, so many women of color would have a disproportionately hard time. traveling to distant parts of the country to get illegal abortion. the same women also don't have the same support. health insurance childcare access access that many white women have so as we look at the issue of abortion, how far do your viewers see down the road when they consider this news from the supreme court? actually this is news that's happening right now. this is happening in the now looking forward a months or weeks. you can't do that, because this is what's happening right now. because we don't know this was a draft that was leaked. so we don't know exactly what the what was the reason of this being leaked or why it was leaked. so we don't really know exactly what's going to happen. it could be today tomorrow and a couple of more days. but we are thinking right now and the now and a lot of people are thinking back to when they have had to have an abortion before how much money is costing, even like you said the fact that a lot of black women don't even have the proper access to healthcare proper healthcare to get an and a legal abortion. and so we're
9:16 am
thinking about this right now because this affects a lot of black women today, and, uh, you know, we can't look to the future because it's happening to us every day and in our in our everyday lives. let's talk about something else. i know you've been long discussing that when the black report brittney griner the w. n b a star has been jailed in russia now for two months. just this week, the state department reclassified her case is one where a person is being wrongfully detained effectively being held political hostage. what's your viewers reaction to this week's action? so britney grinders family when she first was detained around the first few weeks, we were nervous to talk about her being detained because the big story was that if everyone talks about her being detained, and we make this the top headline news that they're not going to let brittney griner come home, so this was really great to know that they're acknowledging that she was wrongfully detained. so that's great. so we know that so now joe biden the administration, the wnba's so many organizations. can legally and openly. rather, i'll say, fight for her to be returned. and so this is just great news
9:17 am
to the w n b. a is doing great things for her, putting a decal in on 12 of the teams on their floors, putting her initials on the floors to let the world know that we stand beside brittney griner. right now we're gonna do everything in our power to get her back home to the us frustration last week when the u. s and russia engaged in prisoner swap that had nothing to do with brittney griner. yes absolutely well, so there was a little bit of frustration, but also hope, right, so it was okay . great so there's some movement. maybe this will look good for brittney griner as well. but her case is already said, and she's going to have to stand trial for that. so we have to let that due process work, but there was a little bit of frustration and the same time because that was not a black queer woman that we're dealing with. this is a totally different race that that we're talking about here, so it's not always equal as we talk about here on the show and on fox was black reports not always equal when it comes to black women, so we're going to have to see how this turns out for her. but it was good to know that there was some movement and that someone was able to be sent home
9:18 am
important discussions. we are glad to be able to highlight some of your good work, demi. thank you. we'll see you next week. casa i will see you next week. thank you so much for having me. of course, of course, a quick reminder here that we can all watch foxhole online at fox hole dot tv can also watch it on the foxhole app for apple and android devices. coming up next to our mornings onto the night. we're about to show you a terrifying descent. we've got a live crew in san francisco getting ready to show us volunteers repelling down at union square high rise why they're doing this. we'll tell you coming up. plus, if you're still looking for a mother's day gift idea, we've got you covered there too. we're showing
