Pat: THERE IS GOOD NEWS TODAY,

THE WORLD IS STILL

STANDING.

WE'RE ALL ALIVE.

AND EUROPE IS STILL AROUND.

ASIA IS STILL AROUND.

AND THE UNITED IS STILL

GOING ALONG.

DESPITE ALL OF THE THINGS

YOU READ IN THE NEWS, THIS

IS A GOOD DAY.

BUT DOZENS OF NEW PRO-LIFE

BILLS ARE ADVANCING IN STATE

LEGISLATURES, AND NOWHERE IS

THE DEBATE MORE CRITICAL AND

DRAWING MORE ATTENTION THAN

THE STATE OF OHIO.

Terry: A MOVE IS UNDER

WAY THERE TO PROTECT BABIES

BASED ON A HEART BEAT.

BUT AS SHARY AS CHARLENE

ISRAEL REPORTS, IT IS

CREATING DISSENTION.

Reporter: RANGING FROM

PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES TO

THE ECONOMY, NOW YOU CAN ADD

ABORTION TO THAT LIST.

HERE IN OHIO, LAWMAKERS ARE

CONSIDERING SOMETHING CALLED

"THE HEARTBEAT BILL."

IT WOULD BAN ABORTIONS ON

FETUSES ONCE A HEARTBEAT IS

DETECTED HERE.

JANET IS SUPPORTER OF

PRO-LIFE GROUP, LIFE TO

ACTION.

IN OHIO, IT TRANSLATES

TO,000 BABIES EVERY YEAR.

Reporter: IN ROE VS.

WADE, THE SUPREME COURT GAVE

WOMEN THE RIGHT TO AN

ABORTION UNTIL THEIR FETUS

IS VIABLE, OR ABLE TO LIVE

OUTSIDE OF THE WOMB.

HEARTBEATS CAN BE DETECTED

AS EARLY AS 18 DAYS INTO A

PREGNANCY.

AND BY SIX WEEKS IN MOST

CASES.

ONE DOCTOR GAVE US HER

OPINION OF THE MEDICAL

SIGNIFICANCE BEHIND THIS

BILL.

FROM A PHYSICIAN'S

PERSPECTIVE, THE VERBIAGE OF

THE HEARTBEAT BILL MAKES

SENSE.

IT IS THE CRITICAL PARAMETER

THAT SIGNIFIES LIFE FOR

EVERY PATIENT.

AS AN OB OBSTETRICIAN, I

LOOK FOR A HEARTBEAT THAT

IDENTIFIES LIFE.

THE PROTECTION OF LIFE

WITH THIS HEARTBEAT BILL IS

A BIG STEP TOWARDS ASKING

OUR SUPREME COURTS TO TAKE

ANOTHER LOOK AT ROE VS.

WADE.

I JUST FEEL LIKE WE'RE

HERE IN A TIME OF GREATEST

GREAT DESTINY, THAT A NATION

COULD TURN, LITERALLY,

BECAUSE OF WHAT IS HAPPENING

HERE.

I'M HERE TO SUPPORT GOD'S

VISION FOR NOT ONLY OHIO,

BUT FOR OUR NATION AND OUR

WORLD.

Reporter: A HANDFUL OF

ABORTION ACTIVISTS PROTESTED

OUTSIDE OF HEARTBEAT BILL

RALLYMENT.

> RALLY.

THEY'RE GOING TO MEYER

OUR STATE IN A TIME WHEN WE

CAN'T AFFORD IT.

THERE ARE MANY PROMINENT

MEMBERS OF THE PRO LIFE

COMMUNITY THAT ARE NOT SOLD

ON THE STRATEGY.

Reporter: STATE SENATOR

PEGGY LENARD, WHO SPENT

YEARS CHALLENGING IT --

IS THE SUPERIOR COURT

REALLY RIPE FOR THE

DECISION?

I THINK THAT IS A REALLY

IMPORTANT QUESTION TO ASK.

BECAUSE IF YOU THROW

SOMETHING AT THE COURT

BEFORE THEY'RE READY FOR IT,

YOU RUN THE RISK OF IT

BECOMING A ROE, AND BEING

REAFFIRMED ONCE AGAIN.

Reporter: THE OHIO

CHAPTER OF THE NATIONAL

RIGHT TO LIFE ALSO HAS

DOUBTS.

WE JUST DON'T THINK IT IS

THE RIGHT TIME FOR IT.

Reporter: JOHANNA

JUSTILE IS WITH THE AMERICAN

LIFE LEAGUE.

I THINK THE IDEA BEHIND

IT IS NOTABLE.

WE AGREE WITH THE IDEA WE

SHOULD HUMANIZE THE CHILD.

Reporter: THE BILL ONLY

PROTECTS BABIES WHO

HEARTBEATS CAN BE

PROTECTED.

BUT SHE BELIEVES ALL BABIES

SHOULD BE PROTECTED.

WHILE IT DOES POINT TO

THE HEARTBEAT AS AN

INDICATOR OF LIFE, IT ALSO

PROVIDES IT IS A QUALIFIER

FOR BEING PROTECTED.

THAT'S WHY WE CAN'T PERCENT

IT.

Reporter: MANY IN THE

STATE BELIEVE THE TIME IS

NOW FOR THE BEATING HEARTS

OF BABIES TO BE PROTECTED.

AS WE HUMBLE OURSELVES,

AS WE PRAY, AS WE TURN FROM

OUR WICKED WAYS, WE'RE GOING

TO SEE GOD, HEAR FROM

HEAVEN, AND BE FORGIVEN OF

OUR SINS.

WITH GOD, ALL THINGS ARE

POSSIBLE.

Reporter: CHARLENE

ISRAEL, CBN NEWS, COLUMBUS,

OHIO.

Pat: YOU KNOW, THESE

DIE-HARDS WHO JUST INSIST OF

HAVING EVERYTHING THE WAY

THEY WANT IT BEFORE THEY

WILL APPROVE SOMETHING -- I

THINK THEY'RE MAKING A

MISTAKE.

HERE IS AN OPPORTUNITY IN

OHIO TO MAKE A HUGE, HUGE

MOVE FOR LIFE.

I MEAN FETAL HEARTBEAT IS A

PRETTY RESTRICTIVE THING.

YOU SEE SOME OF THESE

ABORTION CLINICS AND

ABORTION DOCTORS, LIKE THAT

ONE OUT IN KANSAS -- THEY

WERE DOING ABORTIONS UP TO

THE SEVENTH AND EIGHTH

MONTH.

IT WAS UNBELIEVABLE.

AND NOW YOU'VE GOT FETAL

HEARTBEAT, AND OHIO COULD

LEAD THE WAY.

I'M ALL FOR IT.

AND LATER ON, IF SOMEBODY

COMES ALONG AND SAYS, OKAY,

LET'S HAVE AN AMENDMENT.

BUT THE IDEA OF AN AMENDMENT

TO THE CONSTITUTION IS

VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE.

SO FOR THE PRO-LIFE

MOVEMENT, GET WHAT YOU CAN

GET AND TAKE THAT AND MOVE

ON.

LEE WEBB HAS THE REST OF

OURTOP STORIES.

Reporter: PAT, A NEW

SIGN OF TROUBLE FOR THE

EUROPEAN UNION.

THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT HELD

A VOTE.

THE IDEA WAS DEFEATED, BUT

IT REFLECTS GROWING CONCERN

IN THE U.K.

ABOUT 70% OF BRITS WANT AN

REFERENDUM ON THE E.U., AND

ABOUT HALF OF THEM WOULD

VOTE TO END MEMBERSHIP IN

THE UNION.

GERMAN LEADER ANGELA MERKEL

WANTS TO INCREASE THE

E.U.'s BAILOUT POWER TO

NEARLY $1.4 TRILLION.

THAT'S BECAUSE SHE IS

EXPECTING, PAT, MORE TROUBLE

FROM NATIONS LIKE ITALY AND

SPAIN.

Pat: THE E.U. IS

SOMETHING THAT JUST ISN'T

WORKING.

AND IT'S A STRAIGHTJACKET

AROUND SOME OF THESE NATIONS

THAT THEY DON'T LIKE.

THIS IDEA OF A COMMON

CURRENCY SEEMED LIKE A GOOD

THING.

AND I'M SURE MANY MERCHANTS

ARE ENJOYING IT BECAUSE THEY

GET PAID IN EUROS, AND THE

PRICING OF THEIR PRODUCTS

ARE IN EUROS ACROSS A GREAT

QUANTITY OF LAND.

SO THEY LIKE THAT.

BUT AT THE SAME TIME, YOU'VE

GOT SILVIO BERLUSCONI

SCREAMING YOU CAN'T TELL ME

HOW TO RUN ITALYLY.

THE GREEKS ARE IN SERIOUS

TROUBLE.

PORTUGAL IS IN TROUBLE.

AND SPAIN MAY BE NEXT, AND

LOOKING FOR FINANCIAL

BAILOUT.

IN THE OLD DAYS, THEY WOULD

HAVE A PASADA, A DRACMA,

WHATEVER, AND THEY WOULD LET

IT FLOW TO THE GOODNESS OF

THROUGH OWN ECONOMY.

IF THE ECONOMY WASN'T

WORKING, THE VALUE OF YOUR

CURRENCY WOULD GO DOWN.

WELL, NOW THEY'VE GOT ONE

COMMON CURRENCY AND IT IS A

STRAIGHTJACKET THAT A LOT OF

PEOPLE DON'T LIKE.

WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.

BUT AS FAR AS SOME GREAT

MONOLITH THAT FULFILLS

BIBLICAL PROPHECY, AT

LEAST FOR NOW, IT AIN'T

HAPPENING.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA IS BLAMING CONGRESS

FOR AMERICA'S ECONOMIC

PROBLEMS.

HE DID THAT WHILE UNVEILING

A PLAN TO HELP STRUGGLING

HOMEOWNERS.

THE PLAN WILL MAKE IT EASIER

TO QUALIFY FOR MORTGAGE

REFINANCING.

THE PRESIDENT WILL BYPASS

CONGRESS AND ISSUE AN

EXECUTIVE ORDER.

THE PRESIDENT SAYS THE ORDER

IS NECESSARY BECAUSE

CONGRESS IS,

QUOTE,"INCREASINGLY

DYSFUNCTIONAL AND ISN'T

DOING ITS JOB."

MR. OBAMA SAYS MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS COULD BENEFIT FROM

THE MEASURE.

WHAT DO YOU THINK, PAT?

Pat: LET'S FACE IT, THE

DEMOCRATS CONTROL THE HOUSE

OF REPRESENTATIVES, THEY

CONTROL THE SENATE, THEY

CONTROL THE WHITE HOUSE.

THAT'S IT.

THEY COULD HAVE DONE

ANYTHING, JUST ABOUT, THAT

THEY WANTED TO, AND THEY

SPENT ALL OF THEIR TIME WITH

THIS MONSTEROUS HEALTH CARE

BILL, WHICH IS A DISASTER,

AN UTTER DISASTER, AND THEN

THEY BROUGHT ON TODD FRANK,

WHICH IS ANOTHER DISASTER IN

THE FINANCIAL SCENE.

THEY HAD PLENTY OF TIME.

DON'T TALK ABOUT THEM BEING

DYSFUNCTIONAL.

HE IS POINTING A FINGER AT

HIS OWN PARTY.

AND HE IS TRYING TO PLAY

HARRY S. TRUMAN.

HARRY S. TRUMAN RODE A TRAIN

ABOUT THE COUNTRY TALKING

ABOUT THE "DO-NOTHING

CONGRESS."

WELL, THE CONGRESS IS

SAYING, MR. OBAMA, WHAT

YOU'RE SUGGESTING ISN'T

GOING TO WORK AND WE'RE NOT

FOR IT.

BUT WHY SHOULD THEY BE?

THE LAST STIMULUS PACKAGE,

THEY PASSED IT AND IT DIDN'T

WORK, AND IT WAS HUGE.

AND THIS NEW STIMULUS

PACKAGE IS ILL-CONCEIVED.

SO THEY CAN'T, IN THEIR OWN

SENATE -- IT HASN'T EVEN

GOTTEN TO THE HOUSE YET --

AND THE SENATE IS CONTROLLED

BASICALLY BY THE DEMOCRATS,

THEY STILL CAN'T GET ENOUGH

VOTES TO GET IT THROUGH.

THE PRESIDENT IS DANGEROUS

GROUND WHEN HE STARTS

ATTACKING HIS OWN PARTY.

Reporter: PAT, THE

TEXAS RANGERS ARE NOW UP

THREE GAMES TO TWO IN THE

WORLD SERIES.

AND IT MAY HAVE BEEN A

COMMUNICATIONS PROBLEM

THAT

LED TO THE TEXAS WIN.

GAME TIED AT TWO, AND MIKE

NAPOLI DRIVES HOME TWO

RUNS.

THE RIGHT-HANDED NAPOLI WAS

UP AGAINST A LEFT-HANDED

PITCHER.

IT WAS SO LOUD THAT THE

CARDINALS GOT THE WRONG

PITCHER TO WARM UP, AND THE

LEFT HAND DER HAqEyER HAD TO

STAY IN THE GAME.

THE RANGERS ONE WIN AWAY

FROM CAPTURING THEIR FIRST

WORLD SERIES CROWN.

IT IS THAT TIME OF YEAR WHEN

HUNDREDS OF HIKERS AND

HUNTERS AND CLIMBERS HEAD

OUT TO THE WILDERNESS.

SOME OF THEM GET LOST.

AND THEIR RESCUERS ARE

SOMETIMES FROM THE SAME

ELITE GROUP THAT SAVE THOSE

IN WAR ZONES.

THEY ARE NOW AT P.J.s.

Reporter:

THE OPENING

DAY OF BEER SEASON IS ONE OF

THE MOST HIGHLY ANTICIPATED

DAYS OF THE YEAR FOR

AMERICA'S 12 MILLION

HUNTERS.

DEPENDING ON WHERE YOU LIVE,

THERE ARE MANY

SEARCH-AND-RESCUE OPTIONS.

BUT IF ALL ELSE FAILS, THE

JOB MIGHT FALL TO SOME OF

AMERICA'S MOST HIGHLY

TRAINED FORCES, AIR FORCE

PARARESCUERS.

IT IS MADE UP OF HIGHLY

TRAINED COMBAT OFFICERS AND

PARARESCUE MEN, THEY TRAIN

ON AN INCREDIBLE RANGE OF

SKILLS, TO ENABLE THEM TO

GET IN, GET PEOPLE WHO ARE

IN TROUBLE, AND GET THEM OUT

TO SAFETY.

WHEN THEY CALL US,

EVERYONE ELSE HAS BEEN

CALLED AND EVERYONE ELSE HAS

SAID NO.

WHENEVER THE BEEPER GOES OFF

OR THE CELL PHONE RINGS, YOU

NEVER WHAT YOU'RE GOING TO

GET.

WHETHER IT IS JUMPING OUT OF

AN AIRPLANE, FLYING IN AND

AN HELICOPTER OR SWIMMING IN

FROM A WATER-BORNE VEHICLE.

Reporter: ALL OF THOSE

SKILLS COME IN HANDY WHEN

THEY GO OFF TO THEIR REAL

JOBS IN IRAQ AND

AFGHANISTAN.

IN THE WAR ZONE, RESCUES

TAKE ON GREATER URGENCY WHEN

COMBINED WITH ENEMY FIRE.

THEY GO BY THE CALL ZONE PAD

PEDROS.

WHAT SETS THEM APART IS

THEIR WILLINGNESS TO GO INTO

THE HOTTEST AREAS, WITH GUNS

BLAZING, IF NECESSARY.

WE GO IN WITH GUNS ON OUR

AIRCRAFT AND FULLY ARMED.

WE'RE A COMBAT FORCE.

WE CAN ACTUALLY FIGHT TO OUR

OBJECTIVE, SECURE IT, AND

THEN COME BACK.

Reporter: THE

INCREDIBLE PACE IN

AFGHANISTAN MEANS THESE MEN

ALL HAVE PLENTY OF COMBAT

EXPERIENCE.

AND EACH OF THESE P.J.s

HAS TO FIND HIS OWN WAY TO

WORK THROUGH THE STRESS ONCE

HE RETURNS HOME.

I THINK ONE OF THE MOST

DIFFICULT THINGS ABOUT

COMING BACK IS KIND OF

TRANSITIONING BACK INTO A

FAMILY LIFE AS A DAD AND A

HUSBAND.

SOMEBODY IS IN RUSH-HOUR

TRAFFIC, AND TO THEM, THAT'S

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING,

GETTING HOME.

WHEN YOU'VE BEEN OVERSEAS,

PULLING SOLDIERS OFF THE

FRONT LINE OR DEALING WITH

DEAD AMERICANS.

THAT'S ONE OF THE HARDEST

ASPECTS, PEOPLE IN THEIR

EVERY DAY LIFE, THEY DON'T

UNDERSTAND WHAT WE DEAL WITH

OVERSEAS ON A DAY TO DAY

BASES.

Reporter: OVER THE PAST

DECADES, AIR FORCE

PARARESCUERS HAVE BEEN IN

HARMS WAY.

IN THE PROCESS, MORE THAN 10

MEN HAVE DIED IN THE LINE OF

DUTY.

THEY LIVE UP TO THE

PARARESCUE MODEL, THAT

OTHERS MAY LIVE.

FROM THE AIR FORCE BASE IN

ANCHORIDGE, ALASKA, I'M

CHUCK HOLDEN, FROM CBN

NEWS.

Reporter: FASCINATING.

GREAT AMERICAN HEROS, PAT.

Pat: THEY REALLY ARE.

AGAIN, I RE ENFORCE WHAT

THAT MEN SAID, IT IS SO HARD

FOR PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THE

STRESSES THEY'VE GONE

THROUGH.

AND THEY SAY, ALL THEY HEAR

IS I'M INTERESTED IN WHAT

MUSIC IS ON OR WHAT IS FOR

DINNER, AND WHAT IS ON SALE

AT A SHOPPING STORE.

THESE PEOPLE ARE DEALING

WITH LIFE AND DEATH.

YOU NEED TO DO EVERYTHING

YOU CAN DO TO FAMILIARIZE

YOURSELF WITH THE STRESSES

THEY'RE UNDER.

IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

CHUCK HOLDON DID A

MAGNIFICENT JOB.

THE PRESIDENT OF KAZAKHSTAN

HAS APPROVED A BILL

TIGHTENING REGISTRATION

RULES FOR FAITH GROUPS.

THE LAW HAS BEEN DESCRIBED

BY CRITICS AS A BLOW TO

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

RELIGIOUS EXTREMISM HAS BEEN

AN ISSUE THERE SINCE A

SERIES OF ISLAMIC ATTACKS

OVER THE SUMMER.

THE LAW WILL REQUIRE

RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS IN

THE MAINLY MUSLIM NATION TO

DISSOLVE AND REREGISTER.

THE BILL ALSO BANS PRAYER

AND THE WORKPLACE.

ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS HAVE

EXECUTED ANOTHER CHRISTIAN

IN NIGERIA.

IT COMES THREE MONTHS AFTER

THE MURDER OF A PASTOR.

MARK UJINTA WAS MINISTERING

WITH CALVARY MINISTRIES WHEN

HE WAS KILLED.

HE AND HIS FAMILY FOUND OUT

THEY WAS ON A HIT LIST IN

AUGUST.

HE SAFELY EVACUATED HIS

FAMILY, BUT HE DECIDED TO

RETURN TO THE AREA TO TEACH

A CLASS TO CHRISTIAN

BELIEVERS.
