On CBN Newswatch, April 24: Obama P. Parenthood gala appearance riles pro-lifers; Boston bomb suspect, family on welfare, and more. Read Transcript


Mark: TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH," THE PRESIDENT,

PLANNED PARENTHOOD, A HUGE

FUNDRAISER, AND THE BATTLE

FOR LIFE IN AMERICA.

Wendy: PLUS, PARTS OF

THE MIDWEST UNDER WATER WITH

THE THREAT OF MORE HISTORIC

FLOODING TO COME.

Mark: AND THE NEXT MOVE

FOR THE EPIC BIBLE MINI

SERIES, TO REACH AN EVEN

LARGER AUDIENCE.

ALL THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH."

Mark: PRESIDENT OBAMA

IS NO LONGER THE KEY NOTE

SPEAKER AT A HUGE PLANNED

PARENTHOOD GAY LA.

I'M MARK MARTIN.

Wendy: AND I'M LORI

JOHNSON.

BUT HE IS SPEAKING AT THE

FUNDRAISER FOR THE MAKES'

NUMBER ONE ABORTION

PROVIDER.

Mark: IT COMES ON THE

HEELS OF AMERICA LEARNING

THE GRUESOME DETAILS OF THE

TRIAL OF AN ABORTION

DOCTOR.

SUPPORTERS SAY HE DOESN'T

NEED TO BE SO CLOSELY

CONNECTED TO PLANNED

PARENTHOOD.

JOHN WAGGI HAS MORE.

Reporter: SINGLE WOMEN

WERE A BIG COMPONENT OF

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

RE-ELECTION VICTORY IN

NOVEMBER, AND THE CAMPAIGN

TARGETED THEM SPECIFICALLY

WITH MESSAGES ABOUT

GOVERNMENT-FUNDED

CONTRACEPTION AND ABORTION

RIGHTS.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD PRESIDENT

CECILE RICHARDS SAYS THE

CROWD IS HAPPY TO WELCOME

THE PRESIDENT.

IN A STATEMENT SHE

WROTE, "WE FOUGHT ALONGSIDE

HIM TO ENSURE THAT WOMEN'S

HEALTH CARE WAS EXPANDED IN

THE AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE

ACT, AND NOW WE HAVE TO

FIGHT HARD TO MAKE SURE THAT

THE FULL REFORM IS REALIZED

FOR MILLIONS OF WOMEN."

THERE HAS NEVER BEEN A

PRO-LIFE BILL THAT HE LIKED,

OR A PRO-ABORTION BILL HE

DIDN'T LIKE.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT'S FUNDRAISING

APPEARANCE COMES AT

DR. KERMIT GOSNELL RE MAINS

ON TRIAL FOR SEVERAL COUNTS

OF MURDER, IN A KIND OF

CLINIC THAT CRITICS SAY

SHOULD BE MORE REGULATED.

THEY RUN AN AD CAMPAIGN THAT

IT IS SMOKE SCREEN FOR

ABORTION.

ABBEY JOHNSON WAS A

CLINICAL DIRECTOR FOR

PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND

WORKED THERE FOR EIGHT

YEARS.

I LEARNED THAT PLANNED

PARENTHOOD IS NOT ABOUT

WOMEN'S HEALTH AT ALL.

THEIR PRIMARY PROFIT CENTER

AND THEIR ENTIRE CORPORATE

CULTURE IS ABOUT ABORTIONS.

Reporter: BUT PLANNED

PARENTHOOD SUPPORTERS SAY

THEY'RE TARGETED BY MANY

FEDERAL AND STATE

LEGISLATORS, INCLUDING IN

TEXAS, WHERE LAWMAKERS VOTED

TO CUTTE CUT THEIR

FUNDING.

THE ASSAULT ON PLANNED

PARENTHOOD MAKES NO SENSE.

IT MAKES NO SENSE FISCALLY,

IT MAKES NO SENSE FROM A

HUMAN PERSPECTIVE, ABOUT

MAKING SURE THAT WOMEN HAVE

ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE, AND

IT CERTAINLY MAKES NO SENSE

IDEOLOGICALLY.

Reporter: FOR CRITICS,

THE PREJUDICIAL RHETORIC

THEY EXPECT TOING DISPLAYED

AT THE WASHINGTON EVENT WILL

IGNORE THE HEALTH AND CARE

OF ONE GROUP THAT CAN'T

SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.

HE IS CONSPICUOUSLY

LEAVING OUT AN ENTIRE CLASS

OF CHILDREN THAT ARE YET

UNBORN.

IT IS DISCRIMINATORY, AND

THESE CHILDREN SUFFER PAIN

AND AGONY BY WAY OF THE

ABORTION METHODS.

Reporter: JOHN WAGGI,

CBN NEWS.

Mark: LATER ON

"NEWSWATCH," SOME PLANNED

PARENTHOOD BRANCHES OFFER

ABORTIONS OVER THE INTERNET

BY SKYPE.

HEAR WHAT ONE FORMER PLANNED

PARENTHOOD MANAGER DID TO

STOP IT.

Reporter: SOME

RED-HOOKED MIDDLE SCHOOL

PARENTS ARE OUTRAGED AFTER

THEIR DAUGHTERS WERE FORCED

TO PRETEND TO BE LESBIANS

BEFORE THEIR CLASSMATES.

THE ANTIBULLYING CAMPAIGN

FOCUSED ON MOMENT SEXUALITY

AND GENDER ACTIVITY.

THE PARENTS SAID THEIR

DAUGHTERS WERE EMBARRASSED.

SHE TOLD ME, QUOTE," , MOM,

WE ALL GET TEASED ON AND

PICKED ON ENOUGH, AND NOW

I'M GOING TO BE CALLED A

LESBIAN BECAUSE I HAD TO ASK

ANOTHER GIRL IF I COULD KISS

HER."

COON SAYS PARNS WER PARENTS

WERE GIVEN NO WARNING OF THE

EVENT AND NO CHOICE TO OPT

OUT.

SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS

DEFENDED THE WORKSHOP AND

SAY THEY'RE PLANNING MORE.

Mark: A BIZARRE STORY

THERE.

IT IS BEING CALLED THE WORST

FLOOD IN REPORTED HISTORY IN

AMERICA'S MIDWEST.

THE BAD NEWS IS IT MAY NOT

BE OVER.

FORECASTERS SAY MANY SWOLLEN

WATERWAYS WILL REMAIN

DANGEROUSLY HIGH IN THE NEXT

MONTH.

HEATHER CELLS HAS THE

LATEST.

Reporter: ALREADY

FLOODING IN THE MIDWEST HAS

KILLED AT LEAST THREE PEOPLE

IN INDIANA AND MISSOURI

AFTER RAGING WATERS SWEPT

AWAY THEIR CARS.

IN PEORIA, ILLINOIS, THE

ILLINOIS RIVER HAS CRESTED

AT A RECORD LEVEL,

29.3 FEET, AND FLOODED

DOWNTOWN BUSINESSES.

ALONG THE MISSISSIPPI,

MASSIVE PROBLEMS.

MORE THAN 100 BARGES BROKE

FREE IN ST. LOUIS, COLLIDING

WITH A BRIDGE.

ACROSS THE REGION, RESIDENTS

ARE IN DISBELIEF.

I'VE LIVED HERE ALL MY

LIFE, AND I'VE NEVER, EVER

SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS.

WE HAVE LIVED HERE 50

YEARS, AND WE COME DOWNTOWN

TO WALK A LOT, A COUPLE

TIMES A WEEK, AND WE HAVE

NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE

THIS.

IN MICHIGAN, THE

HIGH-CRESTING WATERS

DEVASTATING BRUCE LING'S

NEIGHBORHOOD, AND IN A

SECOND TRAGEDY, HIS HOME WAS

LOOTED.

EVERYTHING IN THIS HOME

WAS DESTROYED.

SO I TOOK EVERYTHING OUT.

STARTING OVER AT THE AGE OF

56, IT IS A HARD THING.

WHAT WE MISS MOST IS OUR

MEMORIES.

Reporter: IN DISPLAINS,

ILLINOIS, OUTSIDE OF

CHICAGO, HOMEOWNERS ARE

STILL CLEANING UP.

IT CAME IN LIKE A

WATERFALL.

WE WERE BAILING AND URGING

IT DOWN THE DRAIN PIPE UNTIL

THE WINDOW BURST.

AND THE BASEMENT WINDOW

BURST FROM THE WATER, AND

PEOPLE PARADING OUTSIDE.

Reporter: IN OTHER

COMMUNITIES, THE RACE IS ON

TO FILL SANDBAGS AND FORTIFY

IN ADVANCE OF RISING

WATERS.

THERE IS SO MUCH WORK TO

BE DONE, AND THERE IS NOT

ENOUGH PEOPLE TO DO IT.

Reporter: IN

CLARKSVILLE, MISSOURI,

THEY'RE HOPING THE

MISSISSIPPI WON'T COME OVER

THE BANKS.

IN NORTH DAKOTA, THEY'RE

BUILDING CLAY LEVEES AND

DELIVERING SANDBAGS.

EVEN THOUGH SOME RIVERS

ARE SHOWING SIGNS OF

CRESTING, THE RECOVERY ISN'T

EXPECTED TO COME QUICKLY OR

EASILY.

THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE

SAYS MANY WATERWAYS IN THE

MIDWEST WILL REMAIN HIGH

INTO NEXT MONTH.

Mark: INVESTIGATORS ARE

STILL SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS

IN THE DEADLY WEST, TEXAS,

FERTILIZER PLANT EXPLOSION.

MEANWHILE, THE LAWSUITS ARE

PILING UP AGAINST THE

OWNER.

ONE ESTIMATES DAMAGES

EXCEEDING $100 MILLION.

THE DEATH TOLL FROM THE

PLANT EXPLOSION HAS RISEN TO

15 WITH HUNDREDS OF

INJURIES.

MISTY LAMBERT LIVED IN AN

APARTMENT BUILDING DIRECTLY

BEHIND THE PLANT.

I WORRY ABOUT THE NEXT

COLLISION.

IT JUST CAME AT ME.

Mark: YOUR HEART GOES

OUT TO HER.

SHE WAS AIRLIFTED TO A

NEARBY HOSPITAL, AND DOCTORS

SPENT 20 HOURS REMOVING

CHARDS OF GLASS AND MEDAL

METAL FROM HER BODY.

TA TAMERLAN TSARNAEV,

AND HIS WIFE AND DAUGHTER

WERE ON WELFARE, ACCORDING

TO THE BORTION HERALD.

THE BOSTON HERALD.

THE ACCUSED BROTHERS ALSO

RECEIVED WELFARE THROUGH

THEIR PARENTS WHEN THEY WERE

YOUNGER, THE STATE HAS

CONFIRMED.

THE NEWS RAISES QUESTIONS

ABOUT WHETHER THE BOMBINGS

WERE ULTIMATELY FINANCED BY

U.S. TAXPAYERS.

RHODE ISLAND LAWMAKERS ARE

COMING CLOSER TO A DECISION

ON WHETHER THEIR STATE WILL

BE THE 10th TO LEGALIZE

GAY MARRIAGE.

THE STATE SENATE BEGAN THE

VOTING PROCESS LATE THIS

AFTERNOON.

THE BILL PASSED THE HOUSE

BACK IN JANUARY AND HAS THE

SUPPORT OF GOVERNOR LINCOLN

CHAFEY.

TODAY'S VOTE COMES AFTER THE

SENATE JUDICIARY VOTED 7-4

TO ADVANCE THE LEGISLATION

TO THE FLOOR.

RODE I'LRHODE ISLAND IS THE

ONLY STATE IN NEW ENGLAND

THAT DOES NOT ALLOW GAY

MARRIAGE.

Mark: THE REMEIKE'S

HAVE BEEN LIVING WITH THEIR

SIX CHILDREN IN TENNESSEE

AND HOME-SCHOOLING THEM.

THE FAMILY'S ATTORNEYS

ARGUED BEFORE THE SIXTH

CIRCUIT COURT OF APPEALS IN

OHIO THAT GERMANY'S

HOME-SCHOOL BAN AMOUNTS TO

RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION.

THE APPEALS COURT OVERTURNED

A 2010 LOWER COURT DECISION

GRANTING THEM ASYLUM.

COMING UP, A NIGHT TO

HONOR ISRAEL, AND A

COMMITMENT TO STAND WITH HER

NO MATTER WHAT.

Mark: HOUSE REPUBLICANS

FAULT FORMER SECRETARY OF

STATE HILLARY CLINTON FOR

THE U.S. CONSULATE ATTACK IN

BENGHAZI, LIBYA.

FOUR AMERICANS, INCLUDING

AMBASSADOR CHRIS STEVENS,

DIED LAST SEPTEMBER.

A NEW REPORT FAULTS CLINTON

AND OTHER OFFICIALS FOR

APPROVING SECURITY CUTS AT

THE BENGHAZI FACILITY.

THE REPORT SAID, "SENIOR

STATE DEPARTMENT OFFICIALS

KNEW THAT THE THREAT

ENVIRONMENT IN BENGHAZI WAS

HIGH AND THAT THE BENGHAZI

COMPOUND WAS VULNERABLE AND

UNABLE TO WITHSTAND AN

ATTACK."

IT ALSO ACCUSES THE WHITE

HOUSE OF CHANGING

INTELLIGENCE TALKING POINTS

TO PROTECT THE STATE

DEPARTMENT.

IT LOOKS LIKE THE TIME

HAS COME.

SYRIA HAS CROSSED WHAT

PRESIDENT OBAMA CALLS A RED

LINE BY USING CHEMICAL

WEAPONS ON ITS OWN PEOPLE.

IT'S NOT CONFIRMED YET BY

OUR OWN U.S. INTELLIGENCE,

BUT ACCORDING TO ISRAELI

INTELLIGENCE, SYRIAN

DICTATOR BASHAR al-ASSAD

IS USING THE HORRIFIC SERIN

GAS TO POISON THE REBELS WHO

ARE AGAINST HIM.

AN ISRAEL MILITARY OFFICIAL

MADE THE ANNOUNCEMENT IN TEL

AVIV.

ALSO IN SYRIA, TWO BISHOPS

HAVE BEEN RELEASED UNHARMED

AFTER BEING KIDNAPPED ON

MONDAY.

HOWEVER, THEIR DRIVER WAS

KILLED DURING THE

ABDUCTION.

NOBODY SEEMS TO KNOW WHO

ABDUCTED THEM.

POPE FRANCIS I CALLED FOR

THE BISHOP'S RELIEF, SAYING

THAT THE KIDNAPPING CONFIRMS

THE TRAGIC SITUATION FOR

CHRISTIANS LIVING IN SYRIA.

Mark: CHRISTIANS AND

JEWS IN VIRGINIA TOOK A

STAND THIS WEEK FOR ISRAEL.

ROCK CHURCH INTERNATIONAL IN

VIRGINIA BEACH HOSTED A

NIGHT TO HONOR ISRAEL.

DR. PAT ROBERTSON WAS A

SPECIAL GUEST SPEAKER AT THE

EVENT, AND REMINDED

CHRISTIANS WHY IT IS SO

IMPORTANT TO ALWAYS STAND

WITH ISRAEL.

Pat: WE'RE HERE BECAUSE

WE LOVE ISRAEL.

WHY DO WE LOVE THE JEWISH

PEOPLE?

WELL, YOU KNOW, I SERVE A

JEW.

HIS NAME IS JESUS.

HE IS THE MESSIAH OF

ISRAEL.

[APPLAUSE]

[APPLAUSE]

[CHEERS]

Pat: MY LIFE IS ORDERED

BY A BOOK CALLED THE BIBLE,

AND ALL OF THE BOOKS OF THE

BIBLE, WITH THE POSSIBLE

EXCEPTION OF ONE, WERE

WRITTEN BY JEWS.

WE HAVE A JEWISH RELIGION

THAT WE ADHERE TO.

AND, THEREFORE, WE FEEL THAT

THE JEWS ARE OUR BROTHERS

AND SISTERS.

WE ARE ONE IN A FAMILY OF

GOD.

Mark: AMEN.

CHRISTIANS UNITED FOR ISRAEL

SPONSORED THE EVENT.

IMAGINE WHAT IT WOULD BE

LIKE IF YOUR DECISION TO

FOLLOW JESUS MADE YOU AN

OUTCAST FROM YOUR FAMILY,

AND EVEN A TARGET FOR

DEATH?

THAT'S JUST WHAT HAPPENED TO

THE MAN IN ETHIOPIA IN OUR

NEXT STORY.

EEPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS MORE.

Reporter: ABDU AND HIS

FATHER, SUL SULEMAN SPEND

TIME PRAYING AND STUDYING

THE BIBLE TOGETHER.

SOME MIGHT CALL THAT A

MIRACLE SINCE THE TWO DID

NOT SPEAK FOR NEARLY 20

YEARS.

WHY?

BECAUSE AT THE AGE OF 16,

ABDU DECIDED TO LEAVE ISLAM

AND FOLLOW JESUS.

THE YOUNG MAN'S JOURNEY OF

FAITH BEGAN WITH AN

UNEXPECTED VISIT.

I WAS SLEEPING AND JESUS

WOKE ME UP.

AND IT WAS LIKE A DREAM OR

REVELATION.

Reporter: ABDU GAVE HIS

LIFE TO CHRIST AFTER READING

FROM A BORROWED BIBLE.

HIS DECISION MADE HIS FAMILY

ANGRY.

BECAUSE IN THEIR MUSLIM

COMMUNITY, LEAVING ISLAM

BRINGS DISGRACE.

VILLAGE LEADERS TRIED TO

INTIMIDATE ABDU BY ORDERING

A GANG OF YOUNG MEN TO

ATTACK HIM.

AS I WAS WALKING TO

SCHOOL, THIS GANG MET ME ON

THE ROAD AND BEAT ME VERY

BADLY WITH A ROPE.

THEY ASKED ME IF I WAS GOING

TO CONTINUE TO BE A

CHRISTIAN, AND IF THIS WAS

MY FINAL DECISION.

THEY SAID IF IT WAS, THEY

WOULD KILL ME.

Reporter: STILL, ABDU

REFUSED TO RENOUNCE JESUS,

AND HIS FATHER BECAME SO

ANGRY, THAT HE TRIED TO KILL

ABDU.

WE THREW ABDU OUT OF OUR

HOME BECAUSE OF HIS FAITH IN

JESUS.

WE CHASED HIM OUT AND HE

WENT TO ANOTHER VILLAGE.

Reporter: DURING HIS

YEARS IN EXILE FROM HIS

FAMILY, ABDU WORKED AT A

CHURCH AS A SECURITY GUARD

AND GREW STRONGER IN HIS

FAITH.

HE READ MORE THAN 100

CHRISTIAN BOOKS AND BEGAN

DISCIPL DISCIPLING OTHER

FORMER CHRISTIANS WHO HAD

COME TO JESUS.

BUT HIS MOTHER MISSED HIM

TERRIBLY, AND AFTER MANY

YEARS OF SEPARATION, SHE

SLIPPED AWAY TO VISIT HER

SON.

DURING THOSE SIX YEARS I

HEARD THAT ABDU WAS NOT

DRINKING ALCOHOL OR DOING

BAD THINGS ANYMORE.

SO I DECIDED TO GO SEE HIM

SECRETLY.

Reporter: IMPRESSED BY

THE CHANGES IN HER SON'S

LIFE, SAMERA BEGAN TO

CONSIDER CHRIST.

HOWEVER, IT TOOK 10 YEARS

BEFORE SHE, TOO, WOULD LEAVE

ISLAM TO FOLLOW JESUS.

PEOPL I BELIEVE THAT MY

SON'S FAITH WAS TRUE AND

CORRECT, SO I DECIDED TO

FOLLOW JESUS.

Reporter: ABOUT A YEAR

LATER, SULEMAN'S HEART

SOFTENED UNDER THE INFLUENCE

OF GOD'S BIG LOVE.

NOW HE AND THE REST OF HIS

FAMILY, ABOUT 40 OF THEM,

ARE ALL CHRISTIANS.

THIS HUT ON THE FAMILY

PROPERTY IS NOW A PLACE OF

WORSHIP TO THE LORD AND FOR

HEARING THE GOSPEL.

I'M VERY HAPPY THAT MY

FAMILY HAS COME TO JESUS.

BUT THE MOST EXCITING THING

TO ME IS THAT A PLACE NEAR

MY HOME IS NOW BEING USED AS

A CHURCH.

PEOPLE ARE COMING AND

PRAYING AND GIVING THEIR

LIVES TO CHRIST.

Reporter: ABDU IS NOW A

MISSIONARY TO MUSLIMS IN

AREAS THAT ARE HOSTILE TO

THE GOSPEL.

AS FOR SULEMAN, WHILE HE AND

HIS FAMILY ARE PERSECUTED

FOR THEIR FAITH, HE SAYS HE

IS NOT ABOUT TO RETURN TO

ISLAM, AND HE LOOKS FORWARD

TO ETERNITY WITH THE LORD.

THE FUNDAMENTALISTS CAN

DO THEIR WORST TO US.

EVEN IF THEY KILL US, WE'RE

NOT AFRAID BECAUSE CHRISTIAN

BELIEVERS WILL BURY US.

FOR US IT IS BETTER TO BE

ALONE WITH CHRIST THAN TO

LIVE IN A COMMUNITY WITHOUT

CHRIST.

WE DON'T FEEL FEAR.

THESE DAYS FOR US ARE NOT A

THREAT.

Reporter: EPHRAIM

GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, EXPOSING PLANNED

PARENTHOOD'S NEXT LEVEL OF

PROVIDING ABORTIONS FOR

WOMEN.

YOU WON'T BELIEVE HOW

THEY'RE DOING IT.

HAVE YOU HEARD OF A

WEBCAM ABORTION?

IT IS THE LATEST PRACTICE BY

PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

SUE FAYER USED TO MANAGE ONE

OF ITS CLINICS IN IOWA.

NOW SHE IS ON A DIFFERENT

MISSION AFTER LEARNING MORE

ABOUT THE PRACTICE.

HEATHER CELLS HAS HER STORY

FROM STORM LAKE, IOWA, IN

TONIGHT'S FOCUS REPORT.

IN NORTHWEST IOWA, THE

SNOWY LANDSCAPE GIVES INTO

HINT OF SPRING, AND COVERS

WHAT HAS BECOME A

BATTLEGROUND OVER THE RIGHTS

OF THE UNBORN.

AT THE CENTER, SUE FAIRER,

WHO MANAGED THE PLANNED

PARENTHOOD CLINIC FOR 17

YEARS.

I STARTED AT PLANNED

PARENTHOOD REALLY FEELING

LIKE I WOULD BE HELPING

WOMEN.

Reporter: FOR MOST OF

THOSE 17 YEARS, HER CLINIC

DID NOT OFFER ABORTIONS.

BUT THAT CHANGED IN 2007,

WHEN FAIRE DISCOVERED THAT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD WOULD

BEGIN WHAT IS KNOWN AS

WEBCAM ABORTIONS AT ALL IOWA

FACILITIES.

THE PROCEDURE ALLOWS A

DOCTOR TO VISIT A PATIENT

VIA SKYPE, AND THEN PUSH A

BUTTON TO DISPENSE TWO

PILLS: ONE THAT KILLS THE

BABY AND ONE THAT EXPELS

IT.

THE STAFF WERE, YOU KNOW,

INSTRUCTED TO SAY WE CAN

TAKE CARE OF THAT PROBLEM

TODAY, 45 MINUTES IN AND

OUT.

Reporter: FOR PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, ABORTION VIA THE

INTERNET IS A GREAT

MONEY-MAKER, AND IT IS A

GREAT STRATEGY, A WAY TO

UTILIZE A SMALL POOL OF

ABORTION DOCTORS.

THEY'RE HAVING TO COME UP

WITH CREATIVE WAYS TO

INCREASE AND LEVERAGE THE

DOCTORS THAT THEY DO HAVE

WHO WILL DO ABORTIONS.

Reporter: FOR FAIRE,

RED FLAGS BEGAN TO WAVE, AND

THE PROSPECT OF OVERSEEING

THESE ABORTIONS BECAME

DAUNTING.

WHEN SHE ASKED TO ALERT

DOCTORS IN HER COMMUNITY,

PLANNED PARENTHOOD SAID NO.

THEN CAME THE DISCOVERY THAT

SHE AND OTHER NON-MEDICAL

STAFF WOULD HAVE TO PERFORM

TRANSVAGINAL ULTRASOUNDS.

MY BOSS SAID, IF YOU'RE

BREATHING, YOU CAN DO IT.

IT HELPS IF YOU HAVE USED A

JOY STICK BECAUSE IT IS A

LOT LIKE PLAYING A VIDEO

GAME.

Reporter: AND PLANNED

PARENTHOOD USES THE ABORTION

MEDICATION KNOWN AS RU486,

BUT IT DOESN'T FOLLOW F.D.A.

REGULATIONS IN DISPENSING

IT.

THE F.D.A. HAD APPROVED

THE USE OF THESE MEDICINES

UP THROUGH DAY 49.

BUT RIGHT OUT OF THE CHUTE,

PLANNED PARENTHOOD WAS

GIVING THEM UP TO DAY 63.

Reporter: AND DOCTOR

INVESTS ARE ALSO SHORT

CHANGED.

IT IS ANOTHER REASON BY

PRO-LIFERS ACROSS THE

COUNTRY WANT STATES TO

TOUGHEN PENALTIES FOR

DISREGARDING F.D.A. RULES.

THE WAY THIS DRUG WAS

APPROVED WAS IT REQUIRED

THREE DOCTOR VISITS.

THAT IS VERY EXPENSIVE FOR

THE CLINIC TO COMPLY WITH

THAT.

Reporter: SHE WAS FIRED

IN 2008.

A SHORT TIME LATER, THE FINE

PRINT ON HER SEVERANCE

PACKAGE CAUGHT HER EYE.

FAIRE WOULD HAVE TO AGREE TO

NOT SPEAK OUT ABOUT WHAT SHE

HAD SEEN AT PLANNED

PARENTHOOD IN ORDER TO

RECEIVE HER FINAL CHECK.

I HAD ENJOYED GREAT PAY,

GREAT BENEFITS, INSURANCE

FOR MYSELF AND ALL OF MY

KIDS.

AND I THOUGHT, IT'S NOT

WORTH IT.

WE'LL SELL THE HOUSE.

Reporter: AFTER FAIRE

REFUSED PLANNED PARENTHOOD'S

DEAL, HER LIFE CHANGED

AGAIN.

PRO-LIFERS IN STORM LAKE

BEGAN TO APPROACH HER, AND

SHE TOLD THEM ABOUT THE

WEBCAM ABORTIONS IN THEIR

COMMUNITY.

AS I TOLD THEM THE STORY

OF HOW IT HAPPENS AND THE

BUTTON ON THE COMPUTER AND

THE DRAWER POPPING OPEN, I

COULD SEE THE SHOCK AND

HORROR ON THEIR FACES.

Reporter: FROM THERE A

SMALL GROUP ORGANIZED A

40-DAY-FOR-LIFE PRAYER VIGIL

OUTSIDE FAIRE'S FORMER

CLINIC.

I REMEMBER THE STAFF

COMING, YOU KNOW, MY FORMER

CO-WORKERS, AND IT WAS

AWKWARD, BUT I KNEW I WAS IN

THE RIGHT PLACE, PROBABLY

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MY

LIFE.

Reporter: IT BROUGHT

TOGETHER CHURCHES AND UNITED

THE PRO-LIFE COMMUNITY.

THEN A FEW MONTHS LATER,

PLANNED PARENTHOOD ANNOUNCED

IT WAS CLOSING THE CLINIC.

PLANNED PARENTHOOD DID NOT

RESPOND TO CBN'S INQUIRY

ABOUT THE CLOSURE, BUT FAIRE

SAYS SHE WAS STUNNED.

I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO

EXPLANATION FOR IT ACCEPT

GOD IS GOOD AND HE ANSWERS

PRAYER.

Reporter: THE LATEST

ANSWER TO PRAYER IS STORM

LAKE'S NEW CRISIS PREGNANCY

CENTRE.

AT ITS OPENING, PARTICIPANTS

CALLED THE ENTIRE CHANGE OF

EVENTS A MODERN DAY

MIRACLE.

I REMEMBER PRAYING, LORD,

JUST CLOSE THIS PLACE AND

PUT A PLACE OF LIFE HERE.

THERE WERE PEOPLE WHO

WOULD STOP ON THE ROAD AND

COME AND PRAY.

THEY WEREN'T EVEN PART OF

IT.

BUT THEY WOULD SAY, CAN WE

PRAY, AND WE SAID SURE.

THERE IS A LOT THAT

HAPPENED IN A SHORT AMOUNT

OF TIME.

Reporter: WHILE PLANNED

PARENTHOOD HAS TOLD WORKERS

IT PLANS TO IMPLEMENT WEBCAM

ABORTIONS NATIONWIDE, SO FAR

THEY'RE ONLY OFFERED IN IOWA

AND MINNESOTA.

FOUR STATES CURRENTLY BAN

THE PRACTICE, AND SIX ARE

CONSIDERING REGULATIONS TO

LIMIT THE USE OF RU486.

REPORTING IN IOWA, HEATHER

CELLS, CBN NEWS.

IF YOU ARE AMONG THE

MILLIONS WORLDWIDE WHO

WATCHED THE BIBLE ON THE

HISTORY CHANNEL, YOU'LL BE

GLAD TO KNOW THE

RECORD-BREAKING MINI SERIES

COULD BE HEADED TO MOVIE

THEATERS.

MARK BURNETT TELLS THE

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER THAT A

MOVIE VERSION IS BEING

EDITED RIGHT NOW.

I'M GOING TO THE FATHER,

BUT I WILL ALWAYS BE WITH

YOU.

Mark: BURNETT SAYS IT

IS A THREE-HOUR VERSION OF

THE STORY OF JESUS, AND

THERE ARE MANY, MANY OFFERS

FROM THEATERS GLOBALLY.

IT COULD BE RELEASED AS

EARLY AS THIS FALL.

BURNETT ALSO SAYS IT IS

POSSIBLE THAT MORE STORIES

WILL BE TOLD FOR THE BIBLE,

THE MINI SERIES PRODUCED BY

HIS AND HIS WIFE, ACTRESS

ROMA DOWNING.

IN MARCH, MORE THAN

13 MILLION VIEWERS WATCHED

THE DEBUT EPISODE OF "THE

BIBLE."

HE SAID HE WAS CONFIDENT THE

MINI SERIES WOULD BE

SUCCESSFUL, GIVING GOD THE

CREDIT.

THE BIBLE HAS ALREADY BECOME

THE FASTEST SELLING MINI

SERIES D.V.D. EVER.

THAT'S GREAT.

IT WILL BE COMING TO THE BIG

SCREEN, TOO.

ISN'T THAT WONDERFUL.

IT SHOWS PEOPLE WANT THAT

KIND OF ENTERTAINMENT.

HOLLYWOOD MIGHT NOT WANT TO

PRODUCE IT, BUT THE PEOPLE

WANT IT.

Mark: AND BURNETT WAS

SAYING IT IS FILLING A VOID,

AND THAT IT IS.

THAT'S ALL FOR THIS EDITION

OF "NEWSWATCH."

THANKS FOR JOINING US,

AND WE'LL SEE YOU AGAIN

TOMORROW NIGHT.

HAVE A GOOD
