"Rights activists The other thing is that there's going to be a case before the Supreme Court in the next few months which challenges national abortion rights This is the 1973 decision versus wade that legalized abortion nationwide This is going to come before the court and the court has the dynamic has shifted It's become much more conservative after Donald Trump appointed three conservative justices So there's a fear that abortion rights will be rolled back and the way that the Supreme Court handled the Texas law has made made activists fear that that really could happen And those were the anxieties were they of the marches the protesters with whom you mixed today in Washington D.C. Yes I would say the Texas law was what motivated many of them they talked about how difficult it was for women who had to drive across state lines to get abortions They talked about it being a dark moment these were the speakers The activists with whom I spoke said you know we feel like we've been here before but now we're here again and an elderly woman said this needs to be a course correction I've been doing this for 50 years Another young woman said we will keep attacking us and we'll keep fighting back But there was very much a sense that there had been a setback quite a concrete one in the past month and that had sort of reawakened people to the wider dangers if you were an abortion rights activist especially because it said something about the Supreme Court which is where these things are decided So the Biden administration can only just sit back and allow the law to take its course Is that right Well yes and no I mean the Supreme Court will make the decision on the big picture when it comes to Texas though the Biden administration is fighting back It is actually suing the Texas government saying this is an unconstitutional law Now the thing that makes that law so difficult also unique I should say is that the state does not actually enforce it It has a provision of enforcement that goes to private citizens It allows private citizens anyone basically to sue abortion providers or anyone who facilitates an abortion And therefore it makes it difficult to know who the defendants should be if you're trying to stop enforcement of the law so it's kind of like a provision that makes it difficult to challenge it in court Other Republican states are looking at that kind of provision as well to see if they can put it into place because their attempted banning abortion so early have been stopped by the courts But anyway the Biden administration is saying that this is unconstitutional and it is suing the Texas government over it Okay bob but many things That was the BBC's Barbara Plata speaking life there from Washington D.C. and a reminder that you.

What will the Amy Coney Barrett's confirmation mean for the 2020 election?
"We can talk about murder boards. Because Amy Cockney Barrett has just being doing them. I've never heard of murder balls before One of our guests was saying it's the American phrase for a Nintendo practice interrogations where you get people to take you through what you're about to go through. If you're about to go through, for example, the confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court because she is President Trump's pick to fill the vacancy of Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Her appointment would cement Conservative majority on the Supreme Court with enormous political implications. Eyes like nothing seen in U. S history, so close to a presidential election, his Barbara Plata Amy Cockney. Barrett is a dream nominee for those on the right, but it is my honor to nominate One of our nation's most brilliant And gifted legal minds to the Supreme Court Appeals court judge is a formidable intellect, a devout Catholic, a supermom with seven Children. While I am a judge, I'm better known back home as a room, parent, carpool driver and staunchly conservative, although at this White House ceremony, she distanced herself from partisan divides. If confirmed, I would not assume that role for the sake of those in my own circle. And certainly not for my own sake. I would assume this role to serve you. It's just weeks from the election, but nothing is getting in the way of the rush to confirm the new Supreme Court Justice, the third nominated by President Trump, the stakes are just too high. Processes nomination consistent with rules. And I look forward to coming days will be a lot of fun. It will be fun for them. See Graham, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and other Republicans because it's an unprecedented chance to secure a conservative majority on the court for a generation. And also to recharge the election campaign by energizing the base help Amy Barrett and President Trump Fight back stand up for conservative values Republicans But also Democrats have adjusted their campaign adverts to address the unexpected vacancy on the Supreme Court is rushing through a Supreme Court nominee to do just that step away care from millions of Americans and pre existing condition protections for Democrats. This is a nightmare, a job for life. A court that sets the nation's social and cultural direction on issues like gay rights, gun control, abortion and Obama care. Judge Barrett is very fair, but fans of Judge Conti Barrett are convinced she's the best candidate for the job. She's a popular law professor and Laura Walk was one of her students. Judge Barrett is not swayed by any type of personal preferences or things like that again. Witness that in the classroom no one ever knew what Judge Barrett thought about an issue. She never let her students he never Pressured them to think a certain way. Everything was hyper focused on the law. Democrats don't have the votes to stop this, and they're furious about the politics. Today I am nominating Chief Judge Merrick Brian Garland to join the Supreme Court. In 2016, Republicans blocked President Obama from filling a Supreme Court seat because it was an election year. But now that they're in power, they've changed their tune. And the conservative media is almost giddy with excitement. This is going to have a massive impact on the American judiciary, thus gonna have a massive impact. On American culture and society. If Donald Trump secures the Supreme Court seat, even if he doesn't win the election, his presidency will be deemed a success by the ideological right and by evangelical Christians. That's why they voted for him, and it will be remembered as a turning point for the nation on some of the issues that matter the most to Americans.
