TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH"

ABORTIONIST ON TRIAL ACCUSED OF

RUNNING A HOUSE OF HORRORS, WHY

ISN'T THE MEDIA RUNNING MORE

STORIES?

PLUS SUPPORT FOR SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE AS DIFFERENT COUNTRIES

MOVE TO LEGALIZE IT, A NEW POLL

SHOWS MORE AMERICANS APPROVE.

A CBN NEWS EXCLUSIVE, OUR

DAVID BRODY SITS DOWN WITH RAND

PAUL AND FAMILY.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING I AM

MARK MARTIN.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

ALMOST NO MEDIA COVERAGE.

CRIMES TOOK PLACE IN AN

ABORTION CLINIC IN PHILADELPHIA.

ALMOST ALL THE VICTIMS ARE

UNBORN BABIES.

GARY LANE HAS TONIGHT'S TOP

STORY.

REPORTER: THE DOCK IS CHARGED

WITH KILLING ONE MOTHER AND

SEVEN BABIES BORN ALIVE.

HE COULD FACE THE DEATH PENALTY.

EIGHT FORMER EMPLOYEES HAVE

PLEADED NOT GUILTY.

THEY TALK ABOUT THE HORRIBLE

THINGS THEY SAW.

ONE SAID SHE SAW ABORTED BABIES

MOVE AT LEAST TWICE.

ANOTHER SNIPPED THE SPINES OF 10

BABIE

BABIES.

SHE THOUGHT HE WAS 30 WEEKS,

SEVEN AND A HALF MONTHS OLD.

HE JOKED THE BABY WAS SO BIG HE

COULD HAVE WALKED TO THE BUS

STOP.

HIS FORMER LAWYER BILL BRENNAN

SAYS THE TRIAL WILL TAKE TIME.

BETWEEN DEATH PENALTY, LENGTH

OF SERVICE AND ABORTION ISSUE.

WHEN YOU FACTOR THAT IN,

INTERNATIONAL ATTENTION WHEN IT

BROKE.

IT IS GOING TO BE A LONG

DIFFICULT PROCESS.

REPORTER: THE ASSOCIATED

PRESS HAS RECEIVED NO MEDIA

COVERAGE.

THAT HAS LED SOME CONSERVATIVES

AND ONE LIBERAL TO RAISE

CONCERN.

LET ME STATE THE OBVIOUS, THIS

SHOULD BE FRONT PAGE NEWS, YOU

DON'T HAVE OPPOSE ABORTION

RIGHTS TO FIND THE GOESNEL TRIAL

NEWS WORTHY.

THE DEAFENING SILENCE ONCE A

FORCE FOR JUSTICE IN AMERICA IS

A DISGRACE.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

JOINING US BY SKYPE IS DAN

GAINER.

DAN, WHY ISN'T THIS STORY

GETTING MORE ATTENTION IN THE

MAIN STREAM MEDIA?

BECAUSE MOST JOURNALIST DON'T

WANT TO COVER IT.

FLAT OUT.

THAT IS THE ISSUE.

THEY DON'T WANT TO COVER

SOMETHING THAT MAKES THE

ABORTION INDUSTRY, THEY DON'T

WANT TO MAKE IT LOOK BACK.

THE GOZNEL CASE HAS THE ABLTH

-- USING IT AS AN EMOTIONAL

MOMENT THAT IS A GAME CHANGER.

I HAVE NOTICE A BIG PUSH ON

SOCIAL MEDIA SITES PEOPLE TRYING

TO GET THE STORY OUT, IS THAT

IMPACTING COVERAGE AT ALL?

IT IS.

JAKE TAPPER, ONE OF THE BEST

REPORTERS ON ANY ONE OF THE NEWS

CHANNELS IS GOING TO DO

SOMETHING ON HIS SHOW TODAY.

I WOULD SAY IT IS DRIVEN BY

TWITTER.

JAKE IS VERY KNOWLEDGE ABLE ON

SOCIAL MEDIA.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT, DAN, FOR

STORIES TO GET MORE ATTENTION?

THIS IS EVERY NIGHTMARE YOU

CAN EVER CONCEIVE OF.

CLOSEST DOCTOR YOU CAN COMPARE

THIS TO IS DR. MENDRUM.

LOOK AT THE ANECDOTAL

INFORMATION FROM THE STORY.

DR. GOZNEL HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH

EIGHT MURDERS.

SEVEN OF THEM BABIES THAT WERE

KILLED ON APPARENTLY BY SCISSOR

SNIPPING THE SPINE.

DECAPITATING THEM.

STORIES THAT CAME OUT OF THIS

TRIAL, CHILD BEING BORN PUT ON A

SHELF SCREAMING BEFORE IT WAS

KILLED.

IT IS SO GOOLISH THAT I THINK

DANA RASH TWEETING FROM THE

CHARGING DOCUMENTS ON TWITTER

SAID YOU CAN'T KEEP READING

THIS.

IT HAS A TON OF INFORMATION THAT

WILL STICK WITH YOU THE REST OF

YOUR LIFE.

ORDINARY THIS WOULD BE ANY CASE,

WHETHER IT IS CASEY ANTHONY OR

ANY ONE OF THESE OTHER HIGH

PROFILE CRIME CASES, THE MEDIA

WOULD BE ALL OVER IT.

THE LOCAL MEDIA PHILADELPHIA HAS

BEEN ALL OVER IT.

MAJOR OUTLETS ARE NOT PICKING IT

UP.

AMAZING THEY ARE NOT.

WE APPRECIATE YOU GETTING THE

WORD OUT, DAN.

DAN GAINER, THANK YOU FOR YOUR

TIME.

THANK YOU, GOD BLESS.

SUPPORT FOR ABORTION IS

DROPPING ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

A NEW NBC NEWS WALL STREET

JOURNAL SURVEY FINDS 52% OF

AMERICANS SAY ABORTION SHOULD BE

ILLEGAL.

SOME OF THE PEOPLE SAY THERE DO

NEED TO BE EXCEPTIONS.

45% SAY THE PROCEDURE SHOULD

ALWAYS BE ILLEGAL.

THIS IS A CHANGE FROM MONTHS

AGO.

A SIMILAR SURVEY FROM JANUARY

FOUND THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS

SAY IT SHOULD BE ILLEGAL.

SUPPORT FOR GAY MARRIAGE IS ON

THE RISE.

SAME SURVEY FINDS 53% SAY GAY

COUPLES SHOULD BE ABLE TO MARRY

UP FROM 2 POINTS OF DECEMBER

SURVEY.

MORE ON THESE IMPORTANT SOCIAL

ISSUES FACING THE COUNTRY, WE

TURN TO QUINN HILLIER, SENIOR

FELLOW AT THE CENTER FOR

INDIVIDUAL FREEDOM.

HE JOINS US FROM OUR WASHINGTON

BUREAU.

QUINN, LET'S BEGIN WITH GAY

MARRIAGE.

MAJORITY OF AMERICANS SUPPORT

LEGALIZING IT.

WHAT IS BEHIND THE SHIFT?

YOU HAVE MORE AND MORE YOUNG

PEOPLE WHO ARE BROUGHT UP IN A

NEW WORLD WHERE THE DIFFERENCES

BETWEEN THE SEXES IS, IS

MINIMIZED WHERE THEY ARE TAUGHT

THERE ARE NO DIFFERENCES BETWEEN

SEXES.

THEY ARE TAUGHT THAT THERE IS

ALMOST NO LINK BETWEEN SEXUAL

ACTIVITY AND CHILD REARING.

THEY ARE TAUGHT ALL SORTS OF

OTHER THINGS THAT DIMINISH THEIR

APPRECIATION FOR WHAT MARRIAGE

HAS BEEN FOR MILLENNIA OF HUMAN

HISTORY.

THEY START TO THINK OF MARRIAGE

AS JUST BEING ABOUT ASEXUAL

ACTIVITY AND B, FEELING GOOD AT

A PARTICULAR POINT RATHER THAN

SEEING IT AS A LIFE LONG

COMMITMENT TO CREATE A STABLE

FAMILY.

RIGHT NOW THE MEDIA DOESN'T SHOW

WHAT THE REAL FAMILY IS ANYMORE.

AND SO IT IS A PROBLEM.

IT REALLY IS A PROBLEM FOR THOSE

THAT BELIEVE IN TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE.

A FEW WEEKS AGO, SUPREME

COURT HEARD ARGUMENTS AGAINST

CALIFORNIA'S PROP 8 AND

DEFENSIVE MARRIAGE ACT, HOW IS

THAT GOING TO PLAY OUT?

UNFORTUNATELY I THINK IT IS

GOING TO BE A BIG MODEL.

TWO DIFFERENT CASES AND TWO

DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF HOMOSEXUAL

MARRIAGE DEBATE AND SEVERAL

DIFFERENT FACTIONS THAT WANT TO

SPLIT THE BABY AS IT WERE

INTENDED.

YOU ARE GOING TO GET A PAIR OF

DECISIONS THAT HAVE PERMUTATIONS

THAT DON'T CLARIFY A LOT FOR

MOST OF THE PEOPLE IN THE

COUNTRY.

SAME POLL WE MENTIONED FINDS

MORE AMERICANS ARE CHANGING

THEIR MINDS ABOUT SUPPORTING

ABORTI

ABORTION, ARE PRO-LIFE ADVOCATES

WINNING THE FIGHT?

I THINK THEY ARE.

I THINK ALABAMA, I THINK

VIRGINIA, NORTH DAKOTA AND

ARKANSAS HAVE HAD PRO-LIFE

LEGISLATION PASS RECENTLY.

I THINK IT SHOWS YOUNG PEOPLE

ARE NOT ADVERSE TO ARGUMENTS

RIGHT AND WRONG.

IN SOME CASES IT IS NOT CLEAR TO

THEM WHAT RIGHT AND WRONG IS.

THEY LIKE THE IDEA OF DOING THAT

WHICH IS MORALLY RIGHT AND THEY

ARE STARTING TO SEE JUST HOW

HORRIBLE ABORTION IS WHEN YOU

SEE CASES LIKE THIS GOZNEL CASE.

OF COURSE, QUINN HILLIER,

THANK YOU FOR YOUR INSIGHTS.

THANK YOU, MARK.

APPRECIATE IT.

PRESIDENT FRAN SWAU HOLLAND

PUSHED THE LEGISLATION FORWARD

AFTER PROMISING TO DO SO ON THE

CAME PAIN TRAIL.

GENERAL, WOULD YOU AGREE WITH

THE ASSESSMENT BY DIA?

REPORTER: KERRY MINIMIZED THE

YOURS TRULY THAT NORTH KOREA WAS

CURRENTLY READY TO USE WEAPONS.

JOHN KERRY: IT IS INACCURATE

TO SUGGEST DKR HAS DEMONSTRATED

CAPABILITIES ARTICULATED IN THAT

DOES IT GET YOU CLOSER TO A LINE

MORE DANGEROUS?

YES.

UP NEXT, FROM THE NOW

INFAMOUS FILIBUSTER TO FAMILY.

DAVID BRODY CONVERSATION WITH

SENATOR RAND PAUL.

WELCOME BACK.

COULD REPUBLICAN SENATOR RAND

PAUL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES?

HE IS SHOWING SIGNS OF

RUNNING IN 2016.

HE IS NOT YOUR TRADITIONAL

CANDIDATE.

DAVID BRODY TRAVELED TO

PAUL'S HOME IN KENTUCKY

REPORTER: RAND PAUL IS

KEEPING AN EYE ON THE BALD

EAGLES NEAR HIS HOME IN

KENTUCKY.

EYES OF THE NATION ARE ON HIM.

I WILL SPEAK UNTIL I CAN NO

LONGER SPEAK.

LAST MONTH'S HISTORIC 13 HOUR

LONG FILIBUSTER.

I WASN'T THAT SURPRISED.

NOBODY SHOULD HAVE BEEN

SURPRISED ESPECIALLY ON DRONE

ATTACKS.

HE IS DRONING ON ABOUT THE

CURRENT STATE OF THE REPUBLICAN

PARTY.

THE GOP OF OLD HAS GROWN

STALE AND MOSS COVERED.

I THINK RAND PAUL HAS AN

ATTITUDE WE HAVEN'T SEEN IN

WASHINGTON.

RAND PAUL CAN'T BE PUT IN A

TINY BOX.

HE DIFFERS FROM THE TRADITIONAL

GOP ON WAR.

SOME IN THE EVANGELICAL

CHRISTIAN MOVEMENT APPEAR TOO

EAGER FOR WAR.

HE TAKES A SOLID LINE ON

OVERSPENDING IN WASHINGTON.

PEOPLE SAY YOU ARE AGAINST

ALL GOVERNMENT.

I AM FOR 2.6 TRILLION DOLLARS OF

GOVERNMENT.

I AM FOR SPENDING WHAT COMES IN

AND NOT BORROWING.

ANOTHER LAYER, PAUL MIXES

LIBERTARIAN VIEWS WITH CHRISTIAN

FAITH ON MARRIAGE.

MARRIAGE HAS BEEN A STATE

ISSUE.

IF YOU MAKE IT A FEDERAL ISSUE,

WE ARE GOING TO LOSE EFRL STATE.

THE PUSH IS GOING IN THE

OPPOSITE DIRECTION IN EVERY

STATE.

PAUL IS NOT FOR THE

LEGALIZATION OF DRUGS THOUGH HE

BELIEVES SOME DRUG SENTENCES ARE

TOO HARSH.

HE IS FOR PRO-LIFE AND RELIGION

IN SCHOOLS.

NEW

PAUL IS A DEEP THINKER, POLITICS

INFLUENCED BY FRIEDRICH BONN

HIKE.

HIS LIBERTARIAN CONSERVATIVE

VIEWS FILTER THROUGH A BIBLICAL

LENS.

HE BECAME A CHRISTIAN WHEN HE

WAS A TEENAGER.

HE SAYS MUCH LIKE HIS FATHER, HE

DOESN'T WEAR IT ON HIS SLEEVE.

MINE HAS NEVER BEEN THE ROLE

TO CONVERT PEOPLE.

HE DOESN'T SHY AWAY FROM

SPEAKING BOLDLY ABOUT IT IN

AMERICA.

SPIRITUAL CLEANSING OF THE

PEOPLE.

IT IS NOT A POLITICIAN THAT IS

GOING TO SAVE THE COUNTRY.

IT IS NOT ANY PREACHER, BUT

PEOPLE FINDING SALVATION.

THAT IS NOT IN POLITICS.

WIFE KELLY IS LIKE MINDED.

PAULS ARE REGULAR MEMBERS OF

METHODIST CHURCH.

SHE RELIES DEEPLY ON HER FAITH

AT ANY MOMENT YOU CAN LOSE

ANYTHING EXCEPT YOUR SOUL AND

RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

BEING A SENATOR MAY NOT BE A

PERMANENT THING HE'LL BE IN NEW

HAMPSHIRE AND IOWA FUELLING

SPECULATION A PRESIDENTIAL RUN

IS AROUND THE CORNER.

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS IN

TERMS OF HOW YOU ARE GOING TO

ARRIVE AT THAT PROCESS?

THAT DECISION?

I HAVE TO ASK MY WIFE.

NEW

SO WE DID.

IF I WERE IMAGINING WHAT WE

WERE GOING TO BE DOING IN TWO

YEARS FROM NOW I THINK I

PROBABLY WOULD NOT BE ON BOARD.

[LAUGHTER].

FOR NOW, RAND PAUL IS CONTENT

TO CRUISE THROUGH THE MCDONALDS

DRIVE THROUGH PREACHING IS

MESSAGE.

HE IS JUST AN EYE DOCTOR IN

BOWLING GREEN WHO THINKS HE MAY

HAVE THE RIGHT PRESCRIPTION FOR

AMERICA.

AMEN.

[APPLAUSE] DAVID BRODY CBN NEWS,

IN BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY.

GOOD WRITING, DAVID.

SMALLEST PATIENTS.

THE THREE-WAY MIRROR.

WE HAVE HAD THEM SAY I FEEL SO

BEAUTIFUL.

A VOLUNTEER GROUP IN INDIANA

JOINED FORCES WITH THE RILEY

HOSPITAL TO HOST A PROM FOR SICK

KIDS.

LOCAL GROUPS DONATED EVERYTHING

GIRLS NEED.

FOURTH YEAR RUNNING, THIS YEAR

THE THEME IS UNDER THE SEA.

THEY ARE GOING THROUGH A LOT

LIKE I AM.

TREATMENT, CHEMO, ALL THAT

STUFF.

AND SO, IT IS KIND OF IMPORTANT

BECAUSE THEN THEY GET SOMETHING

TO LOOK FORWARD TO.

IT IS NICE TO NOT LOOK AT

OTHER STUFF AND HAVE A DAY TO

OURSELVES.

BLESS THEIR HEARTS,

ORGANIZERS EXPECT 150 PATIENTS

AND FAMILIES TO ATTEND.

MARK, THAT JUST TOUCHES YOUR

HEARTS SO MUCH.

GOD BLES
