Good morning. I’m Taylor Wilson and this is 5 Things you need to know Monday, the 4th of July, 2022. Today, what happens to IVF without Roe v. Wade. Plus the latest from a mall shooting in Denmark, and more.

Here are some of the top headlines:

  1. Uvalde School District Police Chief Pete Arredondo has resigned from city council. The move comes just weeks after being sworn in after allegations that he failed in his response to the mass shooting at Robb Elementary School that left 19 children and two teachers dead. Arredondo has already been on administrative leave from the school district since June 22nd.
  2. Some 17 people are still unaccounted for after a huge chunk of an Alpine glacier broke off and slammed into hikers in northern Italy yesterday. At least six people have been confirmed dead.
  3. And tropical storm Colin is bringing heavy rains to the Carolinas today. It’s the third named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season.

The Supreme Court’s decision to end the national right to abortions by overturning Roe vs. Wade has thrown a potential complication into future parenthood dreams with in vitro fertilization. National Correspondent Trevor Hughes reports.

Trevor Hughes:

The first thing you have to understand is that IVF was developed after Roe v. Wade was decided. And so these questions have never come up before. And these questions are really about the status of the embryos created during the IVF process. Now, during the IVF process, what you have is you have a clinician or a doctor removes eggs from the ovaries and then fertilizes them with sperm in a laboratory setting, then allows that to develop for a short period of time, and then re-implants that embryo back into the uterus for development into a pregnancy. And the sad truth is that many of those embryos don’t develop. It often takes multiple rounds of IVF to successfully have a pregnancy.
