TAKEN TO STOP SEQUESTRATION.

PLUS WOMENS' RIGHTS IN INDIA.

THE PUSH TO END GENDER-BASED

ABORTIONS.

AND WE'LL MEET A WOMAN

TRAVELING TO 11 COUNTRIES IN 11

MONTHS ALL FOR THE SAKE OF THE

GOSPEL.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING I AM

MARK MARTIN.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

WEEKS OF WASHINGTON HYPE ABOUT

LOOMING BUDGET CUTS IS ALL

LEADING UP TO TOMORROW.

THAT IS WHEN ACROSS THE BOARD

CUTS KNOWN AS SEQUESTRATION ARE

TO TAKE AFFECT.

DALE HURD HAS MORE IN TONIGHT'S

TOP STORY.

REPORTER: SEQUESTER CUT IS

LOOMING.

85 BILLION DOLLARS OF CUTS IN

THE WHITE HOUSE ARE LOOMING.

UNLESS THEY STOP THE MINDLESS

SPENDING CUTS, YOU, TOO COULD

LOSE YOUR JOB.

I DON'T THINK WE COULD

MAINTAIN THE SAME LEVEL OF

SECURITY.

KIDS ARE GOING TO GET HURT

REPORTER: REPUBLICANS

SLAMMED THE ADMINISTRATION FOR

RESORTING TO SCARE TACTICS.

WE HAVE SHOWN WE COULD

SURPASS SEQUESTRATION.

THERE IS A LOT OF POSTURING I

AM GOING TO LAY OFF MY

EMPLOYEES, CLOSE HOSPITALS DOWN,

PUT ALL THE PEOPLE IN JAIL ON

THE STREET.

REPORTER: LAST NIGHT,

PRESIDENT OBAMA BACKED OFF.

THIS IS NOT A CLIFF, BUT IT

IS A TUMBLE DOWNWARD.

REPORTER: IN ARIZONA, FEDS

USED AN EXCUSE TO RELEASE

HUNDREDS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS

AND SAVE MILLIONS.

GOVERNOR JAN BREWER CALLS IT THE

HEIGHT OF ABSURDITY.

ARNIE DUNCAN CHOOSING BETWEEN

CUTS AND HURTING CHILDREN.

HELP MORE SPECIAL NEEDS KIDS

AND DO THE OPPOSITE.

REPORTER: "WASHINGTON POST"

MAKING FALSE CLAIMS ABOUT

TEACHERS GIVEN PINK SLIPS IN

WEST VIRGINIA.

PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL MEET WITH

CONGRESSIONAL LEADERS ON FRIDAY.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS.

JOINING US NOW IS SETON

MOTELY, FOUNDER AND PRESIDENT OF

LESS GOVERNMENT.

SETON, HAVE THE GOVERNMENT AND

PRESIDENT OVERSTATED THESE

BUDGET CUTS?

JUST A LITTLE.

SEQUESTRATION GOING INTO EFFECT

WOULD RETURN US TO 2011 SPENDING

LEVELS.

WHEN AS YOU KNOW THE GOVERNMENT

WAS PAIRED DOWN TO THE BONE AND

NOTHING HAPPENING IN WASHINGTON.

LOOK, THIS IS ABSURD.

THEY RELEASED A THOUSAND OR MORE

ILLEGAL ALIENS IN ADVANCE OF THE

SEQUESTRATION.

YOU WOULD THINK THAT ALONE THE

CATASTROPHIC LOSSES OF PROGRAMS

FOR CHILDREN AND DISABLED

CHILDREN AND SICK CHILDREN AND

WE CAN'T ENFORCE THE BORDER AND

ARRESTING BORDER OFFICERS WHO DO

ENFORCE THE BORDER.

NOW YOU SEE OBAMA BACKTRACKING.

YOU HAD ME ON GRACIOUSLY A WEEK

AGO.

I SAID NOTHING IS GOING TO

HAPPEN.

THAT IS OBAMA'S BIGGEST FEAR.

AMERICA IS GOING TO WAKE UP AND

NOTICE NO DIFFERENCE FROM THE

CUTS.

HE SAID IT MIGHT TAKE A MONTH.

HE KNOWS THE CUTS ARE GOING TO

GO INTO EFFECT AND NO ONE IS

GOING TO NOTICE.

LET'S TALK MORE ABOUT THAT,

WILL THE CUTS HURT THE ECONOMY

AT ALL LIKE THE PRESIDENT AND

DEMOCRATS ARE SAYING?

LOOK, EVERY PENNY THE

GOVERNMENT BORROWS IS A PENNY

THE PRIVATE SECTOR CAN'T BORROW

TO GROW BUSINESSES, HIRE PEOPLE,

ADD JOBS, CREATE BUSINESSES.

YOU HAVE THE GOVERNMENT

COMPETING WITH THE PRIVATE

SECTOR FOR CAPITAL.

THE BETTER THE PRIVATE SECTOR

CAN DO BECAUSE THERE IS MORE

MONEY FOR THEM TO CREATE WEALTH.

IT IS ABSURD.

OBAMA SAYS YOU CAN'T CUT YOUR

WAY TO PROSPERITY.

YOU ABSOLUTELY CAN.

THERE ARE GOVERNMENT BUREAUCRATS

THAT SHOULDN'T BE HIRED IN THE

FIRST PLACE.

THAT IS FINE, CUT AWAY DEAD

WOOD.

YOU DO IT IN FOREST AND PLANS,

CALLED PRUNING.

WE CAN DO IT IN WASHINGTON.

HOW MUCH WASTE IS THERE IN

THE BUDGET?

I WOULD ARGUE 90%.

SERIOUSLY, YOU CAN CUT 20%

TOMORROW AND NO ONE WOULD NOTICE

A THING IF YOU CUT IT RIGHT.

YOU CAN DO IT THE WAY OBAMA IS

DOING IT, FIRST LINE OF DEFENSE

ON THE BORDER SECURITY AND

TEACHERS AND ALL THAT.

I DON'T KNOW HOW MANY TEACHERS

ARE PAID BY THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT OR REASONABLY AND

SENSIBLY.

SENATOR TOM COBURN IDENTIFIED

900 BILLION DOLLARS IN WASTE.

I AM ONLY GETTING STARTED.

WE CAN DO 20% AND NOT BAT AN

EYE.

ALL RIGHT.

SETON MOTELY WITH LESS

GOVERNMENT, THANK YOU FOR YOUR

TIME.

THANK YOU, SIR.

STAFF LOU HAS TAKEN OVER AS

TREASURY SECRETARY OF STATE.

TODAY LOU STEPPED IN TO SUCCEED

TIMOTHY GEITHNER.

THE SENATE AFFIRMED THE

PRESIDENT'S CHOICE BY CONFIRMING

LOU LATE WEDNESDAY.

25 REMEMBER REMEMBERS.

SECRETARY OF STATE JOHN KERRY

SAYS THEY WILL GIVE SYRIAN

OPPOSITION 60 MILLION DOLLARS IN

AID.

U.S. WILL PROVIDE FOOD AND

MEDICAL SUPPLIES TO THE REBELS

FIEINGING TO REMOVE PRESIDENT

BASHAR ASSAD.

AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN

ROME IS BEING HELD.

EUROPEAN NATIONS ARE EXPECTED TO

FOLLOW KERRY'S EXAMPLE.

THE GOAL OF THE AID IS TO PUT

PRESSURE ON ASSAD AND STEP DOWN.

A 2000 YEAR OLD COMMUNITY IS

-- 100 SYRIAN CHRISTIAN REFUGEES

REFUGEES.

THEY ARE BEEN DRIVEN OUT BECAUSE

OF THEIR FAITH.

ONE WOMAN SAYS HER HUSBAND AND

SON WERE SHOT IN THE HEAD JUST

BECAUSE THEY ARE CHRISTIANS.

SECOND LARGEST IN THE MIDDLE

EAST AFTER EGYPT.

TWO WHOLE VILLAGES DISAPPEARED

WHEN ISLAMIST REBELS ARRIVE.

EVERY WEEK HUNDREDS OF

CHRISTIANS ARRIVE IN LEBANON.

IT IS A GREAT EXODUS TAKING

PLACE IN SILENCE.

CHRISTIAN PASTOR SAEED

ABEDINI IS MONTH INTO HIS EIGHT

YEAR SENTENCE.

ONE FOREIGN POLICY EXPERT SAYS

THE U.S. COULD BE DOING MORE TO

FREE HIM.

THIS ADMINISTRATION IS OVERLY

SENSITIVE TO NOT OFFENDING

ANYONE OR ANY GOVERNMENT THAT IS

BASED ON ISLAM.

IT IS JUST A FACT.

IN THIS CASE A CHRISTIAN GOING

INTO IRAN AND BEING IMPRISONED

UNDUALLY.

THAT IS NOT WHAT THEY WANT THE

FOCUS ON.

THEY ARE LESS THAN EXCITED ABOUT

TRYING TO NEGOTIATE TO GET A

CHRISTIAN PASTOR OUT OF A MUSLIM

COUNTRY.

THEY SEE IT AS AN OPPORTUNITY

FOR THOSE MUSLIM PROPAGANDAS TO

USE THAT AGAINST THE UNITED

STATES WHEN THEY ARE PORTRAYING

THEMSELVES AS EVERYTHING TO

EVERYBODY.

THE BEST WAY TO HELP PASTOR

ABEDINI IS TO PRAY.

A HORRIFIC GANG RAPE ON A NEW

DELHI BUS.

MANY WERE HOPING IT WOULD LEAD

TO A CULTURE CHANGE.

THAT IS HAPPENING WITH A LONG

STANDING AND ILLEGAL PRACTICE

REPORTER: FOR CENTURIES

KILLING 7,000 GIRLS A DAY IN

INDIA.

ULTRA SOUND TECHNOLOGY HAS

BECOME MORE AFFORDABLE, MORE

ACCESSIBLE AND DEFINITELILY

FUELLED THE WHOLE SEX-SELECTIVE

ABORTION SCENARIO

REPORTER: ON PAPER THIS

PRACTICE IS ILLEGAL.

SOCIAL SOURCES DEMAND IT.

GIRLS ARE CONSIDERED A BURDEN ON

FAMILIES.

BOYS ARE CONSIDERED THE

PRODUCERS OF THE FAMILY.

THE ONES WHO ARE GOING TO WORK

AND BRING INCOMES

REPORTER: 26-YEAR-OLD

KAVINA'S STORY IS COMMON.

SHE HAD AN ABORTION SEVERAL

YEARS AGO AND DIDN'T WANT IT.

I HAD A SON AND BECAME

PREGNANT AND DISCOVERED I WAS

ABORTION AND ARKANSAS.

GOVERNOR VETOED A BILL TUESDAY

BANNING MOST ABORTIONS IN THE

20TH WEEK OF PREGNANCY.

THE HOUSE VETOED 53-28.

SEVEN STATES HAVE ENACTED

20-WEEK ABORTION RESTRICTIONS

BASED ON THE ARGUMENT AN UNBORN

BABY CAN FEEL PAIN AS EARLY AS

20 WEEKS INTO A PREGNANCY.

IN INDIANA, LEGISLATURES ARE

MAKING IT HARDER FOR CLINICS TO

PRESCRIBE ABORTION DRUGS.

CLINICS TO CONFORM TO THE SAME

REGULATION.

THE BILL GOES TO THE HOUSE WHERE

REPUBLICAN LEADERS EXPECT IT TO

PASS.

A GROUP OF MORE THAN 80

REPUBLICANS IS FILING A BRIEF

MORE THAN 200 BUSINESSES ARE

ALSO FILING BRIEFS SUPPORTING

HOMOSEXUAL MARRIAGE INCLUDING

WELL KNOWN COMPANIES LIKE APPLE,

DISE

DISENY DISNEY, STARBUCKS.

WHAT BROUGHT PAT BOONE TO THE

HOLY LAND.

POPE BENEDICT THE 16TH BEGINS

HISASHI TOIC RETIREMENT TODAY.

IN HIS FINAL HOURS AS HEAD OF

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, BENEDICT

MED WITH THE CARDINALS FOR THE

FINAL TIME AND HEADS TO A PAPER

RETREAT SOUTH OF ROME.

WE WILL REMAIN THERE BEFORE

RETURNING TO THE VATICAN AT A

CONVICT.

BENEDICT'S LEGACY IS ONE OF A

TEACHER.

HE WAS NOT A ADMINISTRATION,

HE TRUSTED OTHERS TO CARRY OUT

THE TASK.

HE WAS A TEACHER.

A GERMAN PROFESSOR.

MAN OF AN INTELLECT OF ONE OF

THESE GREAT LIKE PLATO.

WE LISTENED TO HIM AND

PRIVILEGED TO DO SO.

POPE BENEDICT'S RETIREMENT

FORMALLY TOOK EFFECT THIS

EVENING.

IN 1960 THE MOVIE "EXODUS"

TALKED ABOUT THE BIRTH OF THE

MODERN JEWISH STATE.

NO WORDS UNTIL A YOUNG PAT BOONE

CAME UP WITH THE LYRICS.

WORDS HAVE A PERMANENT HOME IN

ISRAEL.

EXODUS!

REPORTER: EXODUS HIT IT IS

SCREENS IN 1960 WITH A STAR

STUDDED CAST INCLUDING PAUL

NEWM

NEWMAN.

NO WORDS COULD SATISFY THE

PUBLISHER AND DIRECTOR UNTIL

CHRISTMAS 1961.

I PUT THE NEEDLE ON THE

RECORD AND HEARD BUM, BUM, BUM,

BUM.

THE WORDS, THIS LAND IS MINE

CAME INTO MY MIND.

I SAID THAT IS THE STORY.

THAT IS THE WHOLE STORY OF

EXODUS.

NEW

CHRISTMAS CARD AND BEGAN TO

WRITE.

FIRST WORDS ARE "THIS LAND IS

MINE."

THEN THE NEXT WORDS CAME TGOD

GAVE THIS LAND TO ME.

IT GAVE HOPE TO YOUNG BOYS

LIKE THE SON OF HOLOCAUST SUR

SURVIVOR

SURVIVORS.

LISTENING TO THIS SONG AND

UNDERSTANDING WE ARE NOT ALONE

ANYMORE, THAT WAS SOMETHING VERY

SPECIAL FOR ME.

YEARS LATER HE BECAME

INTERNATIONALS DIRECTOR AT THE

HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL.

HE ASKED BOONE FOR A COPY OF THE

WORDS FROM "EXODUS" AND GAVE HIM

THE ORIGINAL.

CONNECTING THOSE WORDS IS A

STORY OF THE SURVIVORS THAT

CAME.

THEY HAVE THESE WORDS.

I THINK IT IS SOMETHING THAT

WILL GIVE A MESSAGE TO FUTURE

GENERATIONS

REPORTER: FOR BOONE, THE

MOMENT WAS PROFOUND.

FOR ME, THIS IS TWO OR THREE

MOMENTS I CONSIDER THE REASON I

AM ALIVE AND I THINK GOD'S

PURPOSE FOR ME TO BE HERE.

CHRISTMAS WILL BECOME PART OF

YAED'S PERMANENT COLLECTION.

ORGANIZERS PLAYED A VERSION OF

MINISTRIES COULD RANGE TO

VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL TO ORPHAN

AGES OR MINISTERING TO WOMEN AND

CHILDREN IN HUMAN TRAFFICKING.

FIFTY RACERS ASKED TO TRAVEL

LIGHT.

I'LL HAVE ONE BACKPACK AND BE

TAKING A TENT.

HOW DO YOU FEEL A WEEK

WITHOUT GOING HAVING A SHOWER?

WE WERE LIVING IN A WOODS FOR

A WEEK FIFTY PEOPLE GETTING

CLOSE TOGETHER.

WORLD RACE FOUNDER SETH BARNS

HAVE THOUGHT OF IT TO GIVE AN

ALTERNATIVE.

WE PUSH PEOPLE TO DO A LOOP

10 JOURNEY.

THEY GO OUT AND DO NOTHING.

ALL SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY.

WE ASK THEM TO PRAY FOR LOCAL

NEEDS.

IT CHANGES THEM INEVITABLY.

THEY DEPEND ON GOD TOTAL

DEPENDS.

THOUSANDS OF YOUNG PEOPLE

APPEAR EACH YEAR BECAUSE THEY

ARE LOOKING FOR MORE.

BY ALLOWING GOD TO OPEN UP

HIS POSSIBILITIES AND ALL

DIFFERENT CULTURES, THEY FIND

THAT THERE IS MORE TO LIFE.

THIS YEARNING THEY HAD INSIDE

HAS AN ANSWER.

MOEZEN BEAK.

THE LIGHT SHINES IN THE

DARKNESS, IN MINISTRY I SEE

CHILDREN DYING IN THE HOSPITAL

WITH NOTHING, NO BED SHEETS, NO

DOCTORS, NO PAPER TOWELS TO PICK

UP THEIR MESS.

GOD HAS AUTHORITY OVER EVERY

HOPELESS SITUATION.

HE IS TRUSTWORTHY, HE IS GOOD

AND OUR HEALER AND ULTIMATELY

ALREADY DEFEATED SICKNESS AND

DEATH.

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TAKE THE

WORLD RACE, YOU NEED TO BE

IT WILL COST YOU $15,000 FOR THE

ENTIRE JOURNEY.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO HAVE IT ALL

BEFORE YOU GO.

THE JOURNEY IS NOT ALWAYS

EASY.

HER MISSION REMAINS THE SAME.

GOD'S LOVE.

WHATEVER FORM THAT TAKES

GIVING THEM SHOES OR TAKING THEM

OUT FOR AN EVENING.

JESUS SAID TO HEAL THE SICK,

CAST OUT DEMONS AND RAISE THE

DEAD.

THEY ASK YOU TO HAVE THAT KIND

OF FAITH.

GET THIS, A DATING WEBSITE.

WOOD SIDE IS AN AFFLUENT

COMMUNITY.

RECENTLY OFFICIALS GOT AN OFFER

FOR 11 AND A HALF MILLION

DOLLARS TO CHANGE THE TOWN'S

NAME TO SUGARDADDY.COM.

THE IDEA IS GETTING TIRED OF IT.

MAYBE THERE IS AN AMOUNT OF

MONEY.

I CAN'T IMAGINE WHAT THAT WOULD

BE IN THIS TOWN.

IT IS A DATING SITE TARGETING

WEALTHY PEOPLE.

RESIDENTS SHOULDN'T WORRY.

THEY DON'T EXPECT THE OFFER TO

MAKE IT.

WENDY, WOULD YOU LIVE IN A PLACE
