Video transcript

JULIE HYMAN: OK, we have breaking news for you. Now we did, indeed, get the Supreme Court decision on Roe v. Wade. And it seems they have overturned that decision. Again, the Supreme Court overturning the landmark 1973 Roe versus Wade decision that gave women in the United States the constitutional right to an abortion. So this is going to have broad, broad implications here.

Will give individual states the power to set their own abortion laws. In fact, a number of states have set trigger laws. So it looks like up to half of the states in the United States could potentially now have automatically an instant, increased restrictions on a woman's right to an abortion. We will have much more on this. Obviously, this was something that was pre-staged by the leaking of the draft opinion from the Supreme Court. And there are broad, broad implications of it.
