George: TODAY ON

CHRISTIAN WORLD NEWS,

MILITANT MUSLIMS THREATEN TO

KILL A MAN BECAUSE OF THE

EXCLUSIVE IMAGES HE HAS

CAPTURED.

FIND OUT WHAT THESE PICTURES

REVEAL, AND WHY THEY'RE

CREATING SUCH ANGER.

Wendy: PLUS, IMPRISONED

IN IRAQ.

THIS PASTOR'S LIFE WAS

SLOWLY DWINDLING AWAY.

HEAR ABOUT THE MIRACLE THAT

SET HIM FREE AND HEALED HIS

BODY.

George: AND ORDINARY

PEOPLE MEET AN EXTRAORDINARY

GOD.

THE MINISTRY THAT IS DRAWING

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF MEN

TO THE SOUTH AFRICAN FARM.

*

George: A CHRISTIAN

NATION IN AFRICA BECOMES THE

TARGET FOR MUSLIM

EXTREMISTS.

HELLO, EVERYONE, I'M GEORGE

THOMAS.

Wendy: AND WELCOME

BACK, GEORGE.

GOOD TO SEE YOU, AND I'M

WENDY GRIFFITH.

FOR YEARS CHRISTIANS IN

TANZANIA HAVE FELT SAFE TO

WORSHIP BECAUSE CHRISTIANS

ARE IN THE MINORITY.

NOW THAT SECURITY IS

EVAPORATING, AFTER A WAVE OF

PERSECUTION THREATENING

CHURCHES AND TARGETING

PASTORS.

OUR GARY LANE BRINGS US THIS

STORY FROM ZANARDI,

TANZANIA.

Reporter: THEY'RE

GROWING AND WITNESSING A NEW

UNITY, BUT CHRISTIANS HAVE

PAID A PAINFUL PRICE.

I BURST INTO TEARS AND

SHOUTED, MY JESUS, MY JESUS,

WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME.

Reporter: THAT WAS

JENROSA REACTION WHEN HER

NEIGHBORS STORMED IN WITH

NIGHTMAREISH NEWS.

IN FEBRUARY, THEY MURDERED

HER HUSBAND, A PASTOR.

THE BRUTAL ATTACK OCCURRED

AFTER THE PASTOR WALK TO THE

HOME OF A FRIEND.

ANGER GREW AFTER CHRISTIANS

BEGAN BUTCHERING MEAT.

IN HIS LAST FEW BREATHS,

PASTOR MATHEO IDENTIFIED HIS

KILLER.

EZEKIEL MISHAD SAYS THE

PASTOR TOLD HIM IT WAS A

NEIGHBOR NAMED ABDULLAH.

I WAS NOT SURPRISED

BECAUSE JUST BEFORE THE

ATTACK, I SAW ABDULLAH

LEAVING THE MOSQUE CARRYING

A MACHETE.

HE OFTEN WORE VESTS THAT RES

SE RESEMBLED THOSE BY

REBELS.

Reporter: VICTOR ALGAA

IS ALSO ON THE RUN.

MILITANT MUSLIMS THREATENED

TO KILL HIM BECAUSE HE

VIDEOTAPED THE RIOT.

AGALLA AS VISITED THE MORGUE

AND SHOT PHOTOS OF THE

DECEASED PASTOR'S WOUNDS.

THEY ARE TOO GRAPHIC TO

SHOW.

I WAS HIGHLY AFFECTED BY

SEEING THE PASTOR KILLED IN

THAT WAY BECAUSE HE WAS A

FELLOW CHRISTIAN, AND I

DIDN'T HAVE ANY POWER TO

RESCUE HIS LIFE, BUT ONLY TO

WATCH EVENTS UNFOLD.

I HAVE KNOWN HIM FOR A LONG

TIME.

I WANT THE WHOLE WORLD TO

LEARN WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO

OUR COUNTRY, SO NOTHING LIKE

THIS WILL HAPPEN AGAIN.

Reporter: IT IS NOT

JUST PROTESTANT PASTORS THAT

ARE FACING THESE THREATS.

CATHOLICS ARE ALSO BEING

TARGETED.

LAST FEBRUARY, A FATHER WAS

COMING HERE TO CELEBRATE

MASS AT THIS CHURCH.

HE WAS GUNNED DOWN.

SISTER MARIA SAYS FATHER

MOSHI WAS A KIND AND LOVING

MAN WHO POSSESSED A GOOD

SENSE OF HUMAN.

> HUMOR.

HE LOVED HIS WORK.

Reporter: SOME SAY

FATHER MOSHI'S MURDER PROVES

THE GOAL OF EXTREMISTS WHO

TARGET CHURCH LEADERS.

THIS IS A LONG-TERM PLAN

FOR ISLAMIZING THE WHOLE

NATION.

THEY HAVE URGED MUSLIMS TO

COME TOGETHER TO ATTACK AND

FIGHT AND KILL PASTORS.

Reporter: MICHAEL AFIDA

WAS AMONG THOSE TARGETED AND

SAYS MANY CHRISTIANS ARE

AFRAID.

WE SOMETIMES STAND STILL,

BUT WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS AND

WE FEAR THIS KIND OF

ATTACK.

WE DON'T KNOW TOMORROW WHAT

IS GOING TO HAPPEN, FOR ME

OR FOR ANOTHER ONE.

I TELL MY CONGREGATION TO

NOT BE AFRAID OF ANYTHING.

Reporter: AND WIDOW

JENROSA BELIEVES GOD IS WITH

HER AND HER 12 CHILDREN.

SHE TRUSTS HE WILL PROVIDE

FOR THEM.

SHE SAYS GOD HAS A GREATER

PURPOSE IN METHEO'S DEATH.

I BELIEVE GOD NEW MATH

MATHEO'S HISTORY, AND NO

MATTER WHAT HE WENT THROUGH,

IT WAS NECESSARY HE WOULD GO

THROUGH THIS SO IT WOULD BE

A LESSON FOR THE REMAINING

PEOPLE AND HE WILL BE IN

GOD'S KINGDOM.

Reporter: TANZANIAN

CHRISTIANS SAY THEY ARE

READY TO FOLLOW THEIR

EXAMPLE AND REAP A BOUNTIFUL

HARVEST.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS,

TANZANIA.

George: TWO BISHOPS

KIDNAPPED IN THE NORTHERN

PART OF THE COUNTRY ARE

STILL MISSING.

EARLIER REPORTS SAID THE

BISHOPS HAD BEEN RELEASED,

BUT THIS IS NOT THE CASE.

THE TWO MEN WERE TAKEN FROM

THEIR CAR BY GUN POINT AS

THEY TRAVELLED OUTSIDE THE

CITY OF ALEPPO.

ONE IS A GREEK ORTHODOX

BISHOP, AND THE OTHER IS A

BISHOP IN THE CHURCH.

SYRIAN'S MAIN REBEL GROUP

BLAMED THE ASAD REGIME.

Wendy: THIS WEEK

AUTHORITIES AND NORTHERN

IRAQ FREED A POISON WHO WAS

IMPRISONED FOR NEARLY TWO

YEARS.

PASTOR JAMAL WORKS WITH

WORLD COMPASSION AND IT WAS

THE BOLD INTERVENTION OF

TERRY LAW THAT SET HIM

FREE.

JAMAL HAD BEEN TREATED FOR A

BRAIN TUMOR BEFORE GOING TO

PRISON, AND HE CONTINUED TO

SUFFER SEVERE HEADACHES.

THEY OBTAINED A LETTER

REQUESTING JAMAL'S RELEASE.

HE THEN SOUGHT ACCESS TO THE

HIGHEST AUTHORITIES IN

NORTHERN IRAQ TO MAKE HIS

ARREST.

HE TOLD CBN NEWS WHAT

HAPPENED NEXT.

WHEN THE GOVERNMENT

LEADERS ACTUALLY SAW THE

LETTER, IT HAD GREAT

IMPACT.

WHEN WE APPEALED FOR HIM, WE

DID NOT DO IT ON GUILTY OR

INNOCENCE.

WE DID IT PURELY ON THE

BASIS THAT THE MAN WAS

PROBABLY GOING TO DIE.

AND UPON A HUMANITARIAN

BASIS, WE PLED WITH THE

AUTHORITIES THERE TO TURN

HIM LOOSE.

WHEN I WALKED INTO THIS

PALATIAL BUILDING TO MEET

WITH THE MINISTER OF THE

INTERIOR, COREAN SENGARI, I

HAD BEEN PRAYING.

I WANTED GOD'S WISDOM.

I FELT LIKE WE WERE OFFERING

THE KURDISH GOVERNMENT AN

OPPORTUNITY TO BE SHOWN

AROUND THE WORLD AS A PLACE

OF OPENNESS FOR THE GOSPEL.

WHEN COREAN SENGARI SAID I

KNOW HUNDREDS OF MUSLIMS WHO

HAVE PROSELYTIZED, I

COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EARS.

HE SAID, WE'RE GOING TO

DEMAND FREEDOM OF RELIGION

HERE IN THE FUTURE.

Wendy: AND THERE IS ONE

MORE MIRACLE TO REPORT IN

THIS STORY.

IT CONCERNS THAT BRAIN

TUMOUR THAT MOTIVATED TERRY

TO ACTION.

SINCE HIS RELEASE, THE

PASTOR HAS BEEN GIVEN AN

M.R.I., AND IT SHOWS NO SIGN

OF A TUMOR.

HE BELIEVES THAT AFTER USING

THAT ILLNESS TO SET JAMAL

FREE, GOD SET HIM FREE.

YOU CAN SEE THE FULL

INTERVIEW ON OUR WEBSITE AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

George: VERY

ENCOURAGING.

MANY CHRISTIANS TRAVEL TO

ISRAEL EVERY YEAR TO SHOW

THEIR SUPPORT FOR THE JEWISH

STATE.

Wendy: SOME QUESTION IF

THE NEXT GENERATION WILL

CONTINUE IN THAT VISION.

CHRIS MITCHELL TELLS US

ABOUT ONE GROUP TRYING TO

KEEP IT ALIVE.

Reporter: IN THE EARLY

'90s, EB EBE EBENIZER

BEGAN TO BRING PEOPLE BACK

TO ISRAEL.

AND NOW THEY'RE GIVING YOUNG

PEOPLE AN PLAN TO EXPERIENCE

ISRAEL.

MY PASSION IS TO SEE

YOUNG PEOPLE GETTING TRAINED

AND EQUIPPED HERE IN ISRAEL

AND BEING SENT BACK TO THE

NATIONS.

Reporter: ANDY

COORDINATES "ENGAGE

ISRAEL."

WE KIND OF PACK THEIR

SPIRITUAL BACKPACK WITH

THEIR SOLID UNDERSTANDING OF

ISRAEL, AS OF TODAY, FROM

THE PAST, AND IN THE FUTURE,

AND TO GO HOME WITH THAT

UNDERSTANDING THAT THE BIBLE

IS ALIVE.

GETTING TO SEE THE

PEOPLE.

GETTING TO HEAR FROM THE

PEOPLE THEIR STORY, AND

GOING TO DIFFERENT PLACES.

Reporter: THEY HIKE THE

GOLAN HEIGHTS, SLAP MUD ON

AT THE DEAD SEA, RIDE CAMELS

IN THE DESERT, AND LEARN

ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST.

IT HAS BEEN A BRILLIANT

TIME OF STUDY, AS WELL AS

REFLECTION, AS WELL AS

SIGHTSEEING, AS WELL AS

RELAXATION.

BUT IT REALLY HAS OPENED MY

EYES TO A LOT OF THINGS I

DIDN'T KNOW.

Reporter: AND THEY ALSO

TAKE ON SERVICE PROJECTS,

LIKE CLEANING THIS CHURCH

YARD, THE STREETS OF THE

ARAB CITY OF JERICHO, AND

VISITING A SUMMER CAMP FOR

ISRAELI CHILDREN. THEY

SPEND TIME GETTING TO KNOW

WHAT IT IS LIKE IN TODAY'S

ISRAEL.

BEING A SOLDIER WAS

IMPRESSIVE.

BECAUSE THEY WERE REALLY,

REALLY YOUNG.

WE GAVE THEM PRESENTS, AND

IT WAS JUST INCREDIBLE.

Reporter: AND IN

HISTORIC PLACES, LIKE WHERE

GIDEON CHOSE HIS ARMY.

PRAYER ALSO PLAYS A ROLE IN

THEIR TIME HERE.

WE'RE HERE WITH A

PURPOSE.

ONE THING WE'VE BEEN DOING,

WHICH I'VE NEVER DONE

BEFORE, IS WE HAVE A PRAYER

CHAIN EVERY NIGHT, AND WE

TAKE TURNS PRAYING

THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT FOR

ISRAEL.

Reporter: LAST SUMMER,

ABOUT 100 PEOPLE FROM 20

NATIONS PARTICIPATED IN THE

"ENGAGE ISRAEL" TOUR.

YOUNG PEOPLE WOULD TAKE

IT TO OTHER PEOPLE AND

MULTIPLY THE UNDERSTANDING

OF ISRAEL, OF THE PROPHECY,

AND THE CALL AS CHRISTIANS

TO STAND WITH ISRAEL AND TO

HELP THEM HOME.

I LOVE THIS LAND AND THE

UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THE

LORD IS DOING HERE IN ISRAEL

AND AMONGST HIS PEOPLE IS

VERY MUCH IN MY HEART.

I REALLY WANT TO SEE MY

GENERATION RAISED UP TO

UNDERSTAND THAT, ALSO.

Reporter: AND THEY

FOCUSED ON FA FACILITATING

ALIA, THAT IS HELPING PEOPLE

IMMIGRATE TO ISRAEL.

HOW BLESSED WE ARE TO SEE

THAT WITH OUR EYES.

HOW ISRAEL IS COMING BACK TO

THE LAND THAT GOD HAS

PROMISED THEM.

I WILL TELL THEM HOW

GREAT HE WAS BECAUSE IT IS

AMAZING.

TO STAND UP FOR ISRAEL.

TO COME THEMSELVES AND

EXPERIENCE GOD HERE IN THE

HOLY LAND.

Reporter: CHRIS

MITCHELL, CBN NEWS, ISRAEL.

Wendy: AND COMING UP,

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF MEN

ARE FINDING NEW LIFE AT THE

SOUTH AFRICAN FARM.

SEE WHAT HAPPENS WHEN

ORDINARY PEOPLE MEET AN

EXTRAORDINARY GOD.

.

George: WELCOME BACK TO

THIS SHOW.

ANGUS BUCKHAM IS AN ORDINARY

MAN WHO MET AN EXTRAORDINARY

GOD.

HE STARTED OUT AS A MAZE AND

CATTLE FARMER IN SOUTH

AFRICA.

Wendy: I MET HIM.

HE IS AMAZING.

NOW HE HOSTS AN ANNUAL

GATHERING OF HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS OF MEN.

THE NEW FILM, "ANGUS

BUCKHAM'S ORDINARY PEOPLE,"

WAS INSPIRED BY HIS TRUE

STORY.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM HAS MORE.

I USED TO DREAM OF

PREACHING TO THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE.

[YELLING]

Reporter: ANGUS MAY

HAVE DREMPT OF PREACHING,

BUT HE HAD NO IDEA HOW GOD

WOULD USE THAT DREAM.

THE FILM, "ANGUS BUMHAM'S

ORDINARY PEOPLE," IS BASED

ON THE STORIES OF THREE MEN

WHO BUCKHAM TOUCHED THROUGH

HIS MIGHTY MEN CONFERENCE.

IT IS A STORY OF HOW GOD

CHANGES LIVES.

GOD CAUGHT UP WITH ME.

HE TIED ME TO A TRY.

AND HE CAME AT ME WITH THAT,

JUST LIKE I AM COMING AT

YOU.

BUT I DID NOT GET THE LESSON

THAT I DESERVED BECAUSE HE

TOLD ME ABOUT HIS SON,

JESUS.

AND THAT HE WOULD TAKE THE

SAMBOOK FOR ME IF I WOULD

ONLY CHOOSE.

WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO

DO?

I WANT YOU TO STOP

DRINKING.

NOW YOU WILL CHOOSE.

I HAPPEN TO BE GLOWING

GOING TO A GREATER GATHERING

OF MEN.

NOW, YOU CAN COME WITH ME,

OR I CAN HAND YOU OVER TO

THE POLICE.

Reporter: A DESPERATE

CRIMINAL, A MAN CAUGHT

BETWEEN GRIEF AND DEBT, AND

A YOUNG ALCOHOL TRYING TO

ESCAPE HIS MISERY.

THREE MEN SEARCHING FOR

HOPE.

YOU NEED TO START DOING

WHAT GOD'S TOLD YOU TO DO.

AND THAT'S WHY SOME OF US

YET TODAY ARE UNHAPPY,

BECAUSE YOU'RE IN THE WRONG

PLACE, MY BOY.

Reporter: IT IS A STORY

OF MERCY, PURPOSE, FAITH,

AND ONE FARMER'S SPIRITUAL

TRANSFORMATION THAT LED TO A

CONFERENCE FULL OF MIGHTY

MEN SEEKING GOD.

EPHRAIM GRAHAM, CBN NEWS.

George: AND RECENTLY

EPHRAIM SPOKE WITH ANGUS

ABOUT THE FILM AND HIS MEN'S

SURVIVAL FROM HIS FARM IN

SOUTH AFRICA.

ANGUS BUCKHAM JOINS US NOW

FOR MORE.

THESE STORIES FROM ORDINARY

PEOPLE ARE BASED ON REAL

LIFE.

IS THIS THE TYPICAL KIND OF

CHANGE THAT TAKES PLACE AT

YOUR MEN'S CONFERENCES?

ABSOLUTELY, EPHRAIM.

IT IS MIRACULOUS.

GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF

PERSONS.

HE USES -- EXCUSE THE PUN --

ORDINARY PEOPLE TO DO HIS

MIGHTY MIRACLES.

Reporter: YOU HAVE SEEN

THESE EVENTS INCREASE FROM

THOUSANDS TO HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS IN JUST A FEW

YEARS.

WHAT EXPLAINS THE GROWTH?

YEAH.

YOU KNOW, IT HAS GOT TO BE

GOD, EPHRAIM.

THERE ARE NO BIG NAMES.

THERE ARE NO DRAW CARDS.

GOD JUST -- YOU KNOW, HE

SPOKE TO ME IN 2003.

HE SAID I HAD FORSAKEN MY

FIRST LOVE, I NEED TO

REPENT, AND I NEED TO GET

BACK TO BASICS.

SO I DID.

I SAID, LORD, WHAT DO I DO

NOW?

I CANCELLED EVERY ONE OF MY

PREACHING APPOINTMENTS, AND

I FELT THE LORD SAY, I WANT

YOU TO MENTOR YOUNG MEN.

THERE ARE VERY FEW SPIRITUAL

FATHERS IN THE NATION.

I'M TALKING ABOUT SOUTH

AFRICA AS IT WAS THEN.

I CAME HOME AND I SENT OUT

ONE E-MAIL.

I'M AN EVANGELIST, AND I'M

OUT TO E PREACH.

IN THE LAST MEETING WE HAD

IN 2010, THE LORD SAID TO

ME, I DON'T WANT YOU TO

COUNT HEADS, BUT I CAN TELL

YOU THERE WERE MULTITUDES

AND MULTITUDES OF MEN.

MORE MEN ARRIVED HERE,

EPHRAIM, ON THIS FARM, THEN

THE WHOLE DEFENSE FORCE OF

SOUTH AFRICA PUT TOGETHER,

THAT'S ARMY, AIR FORCE, AND

NAVY.

Reporter: WOW.

AMAZING.

SO WHAT IS THE GREAT NEED

THESE MEN HAVE TODAY?

I THINK THEY'RE NEEDING

ROLE MODELS, EPHRAIM.

THEY'RE NEEDING MEN THAT

WILL GET BACK TO BASICS.

YOUNG MEN WANT THE TRUTH.

THEY WANT IT STRAIGHT, AND

THEY WANT IT FROM THE

SHOULDER.

AND THAT'S WHY WE SPEAK TO

MEN.

YOU KNOW, MOST OF THE PEOPLE

THAT RESPOND TO THESE

MEETINGS AFTERWARDS WITH

LETTERS, E-MAILS, Facebook

MESSAGES, ARE WOMEN AND

CHILDREN.

THE TYPE OF THINGS WE GET

MAKE YOU WANT TO WEEP.

FOR EXAMPLE, ONE LADY WOULD

WRITE AND SAY THE MAN THAT I

FELL IN LOVE WITH 20 YEARS

AGO CAME BACK THIS WEEKEND.

AND TO GET A LITTLE GIRL OF

10 YEARS OLD, WITH THE BIG

HANDWRITING, SAYING, "DEAR

UNCLE ANGUS, THANK YOU FOR

GIVING ME A BRAND NEW

DADDY."

THAT'S WHAT MAKES ME KEEP

GOING, EPHRAIM.

Reporter: SO WHAT DOES

THE WORLD NEED FROM MEN AT

THIS TIME?

I BELIEVE THE WORLD IS

LOOKING FOR MEN WHO WILL

STAND UP AND BE COUNTED.

MEN WHO WILL BE PREPARED TO

SPEAK THE TRUTH.

Reporter: THE FILM,

"ORDINARY PEOPLE," ALSO

TELLS YOUR STORY, HOW YOU

DREAMED OF PREACHING TO

THOUSANDS, AND HOW GOD

BROUGHT THAT DREAM TO PASS.

HOW DID GOD MAKE THAT WORK

TO MAKE THAT HAPPEN?

I USED TO DREAM OF

PREACHING TO PEOPLE.

I WOULD GET IN MY PICKUP,

AND I WOULD GO TO THE CORN

FIELDS HERE ON THE FARM, AND

I WOULD START PREACHING TO

THE CORN.

[LAUGHTER]

I WOULD PREACH MY HEART

OUT, AND THE LORD WOULD

BRING A GENTLE WIND, AND ALL

OF THE CORN HEADS WOULD BOW

THEIR HEADS.

IN 2010, IN THAT SAME SPOT,

WHEN I WAS PREACHING TO THE

CORN, THEY PUT UP A MASSIVE,

MASSIVE PLATFORM, OKAY?

AND I WAS LOOKING OUT, WITH

GOOD EYES, AND AS FAR AS MY

NATURAL EYE COULD SEE,

EPHRAIM, I JUST SAW MEN'S

HEADS, JUST MEN.

AND IT WAS LIKE THE HOLY

SPIRIT SAID TO ME, ANGUS,

REMEMBER WHEN YOU USED TO

PREACH TO THE CORN, AND I

SAID, YES, LORD, I'M

PREACHING, BY THE WAY, BUT

HE IS TALKING TO ME IN MY

SPIRIT.

AND HE SAYS, THERE YOU ARE,

YOUR PRAYERS HAVE BEEN

ANSWERED.

Reporter: THANK YOU,

ANGUS, FOR TALKING TO US.

Wendy: ANGUS BUMHAM IS

COMING TO THE U.S.

AND HE WILL PREACH ON MAY

THE 3rd.

George: UP NEXT, THE

ABORTION BATTLE COMES TO

IRELAND.

Wendy: IRELAND IS ONE

OF THE SAFEST COUNTRIES IN

THE WORLD FOR A WOMAN TO

HAVE A BABY.

George: BUT NOW AN

INTENSE POLITICAL BATTLE IS

THREATHREATENING TO MAKE

ABORTION LEGAL THERE.

DALE HURD REPORTS FROM

DUBLIN.

Reporter: 35,000 IRISH

CITIZENS CONVERGED ON DUBLIN

IN JANUARY TO TELL THE

GOVERNMENT TO LEAVE

IRELAND'S PRO-LIFE LAW

ALONE.

IRELAND IS ONE OF THE LAST

SAFE NATIONS FOR UNBORN

CHILDREN.

THAT COULD ALL CHANGE SOON.

IRELAND'S ABORTION

RESTRICTIONS HAVE COME UNDER

INTENSE INTERNATIONAL

PRESSURE AND RELENTLESS

ATTACKS IN THE IRISH MEDIA.

AND SOME ARE BLAMING

IRELAND'S PRO-LIFE LAW FOR

THE DEATH OF A PREGNANT

WOMEN.

THE MEDIA AND PRO-ABORTION

GROUPS ARE PUSHING THE STORY

THAT A 31-YEAR-OLD PREGNANT

INDIAN WOMAN DIED BECAUSE

SHE COULDN'T HAVE AN

ABORTION.

BUT THE FACTS OF THE CASE

ARE MISLEADING.

MIA IS A NATIONAL PRO-LIFE

LEADER.

WHEN NEWS OF HER DEATH

FIRST BROKE, IT WAS

NATIONALLY EXPLOITED.

THIS BECAME A GLOBAL

HEADLINE, AND THE GLOBAL

HEADLINE IS THAT IRELAND HAD

KILLED HER BECAUSE OFORY

PRO-LIFE LAWS.

Reporter: SHE DIED LAST

YEAR AT UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL

IN GALWAY FROM SEP

SEPTICEMIA, OR BLOOD

POISONING.

HER HUSBAND CLAIMS THEY

REQUESTED AN ABORTION THREE

DIFFERENT TIMES IN HOPES OF

SAVING HER LIFE.

THE PRESS REPORT MADE IT

SOUND LIKE SHE DIED BECAUSE

SHE COULDN'T HAVE AN

ABORTION.

BUT AT THE INQUEST INTO HER

DEATH, MEDICAL EXPERTS

DETERMINED THAT SHE DIED

FROM SEPSIS AND A SERIES OF

MEDICAL ERRORS, BUT THE

MEDIA CONTINUES TO MAKE IT

LOOK LIKE SHE DIED BECAUSE

SHE WAS DENIED AN ABORTION.

DR. SEAN O'DONNELL IS A

PSYCHIATRIST AND AN IRISH

PRO-LIFE LEADER.

THE IRISH MEDIA WEP WENT

TO THE WORLD MEDIA AND SAID,

LOOK AT CATHOLIC IRELAND, IT

IS ALLOWING PEOPLE TO DIE

BECAUSE THEY CAN'T HAVE

ABORTION.

Reporter: PRO-ABORTION

GROUPS WANT THE GOVERNMENT

TO MAKE LAW WHAT IRELAND

SUPREME COURT RULED IN

SOMETHING CALLED THE "X"

CASE, WHICH WOULD ALLOW

ABORTION IF THE MOTHER FELT

SUICIDAL.

SHANADA HERN IS WITH THE

PRO-ABORTION GROUP, CHOICE

IRELAND.

EVERY DAY WE HAVE TO FACE

ANOTHER DAY WHERE WOMEN'S

RIGHTS ARE BEING VIOLATED.

Reporter: THE MESSAGE

THAT WOMEN'S LIVES ARE IN

DANGER BECAUSE OF IRELAND'S

ABORTION LAW APPEARS TO BE

EXACTLY WRONG.

THE STATISTICS SHOW IRELAND

IS ONE OF THE SAFEST PLACES

IN THE WORLD FOR A PREGNANT

WOMEN.

IRISH DOCTORS ARE NOT

PREVENTED FROM INTERVENING

WHEN THERE IS A

LIFE-THREATENING CONDITION

ARRIVING IN PREGNANCY.

THEY WILL ALWAYS INTERVENE

TO SAVE THE MOTHER'S LIFE,

EVEN IF THAT MEANS IN

UNINTENDED DEATH OF THE

BABY.

WE CAN SAY IN THIS COUNTRY

WE HAVE BANNED ABORTIONS FOR

30 YEARS.

IN THAT TIME, WE HAVE BECOME

ONE OF THE SAFEST PLACES IN

THE WORLD FOR A MOTHER TO

HAVE A BABY.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE

UNITED NATIONS.

Reporter: IRISH PRIME

MINISTER CANNY WAS ELECTED

ON THE PROMISE HE WOULD NOT

OPEN THE DOOR TO ABORTION.

BUT HE IS ALREADY WAVERING.

PRO-LIFE PROTESTORS IN

JANUARY CALL FOR KENNY TO

KEEP HIS PROMISE.

[YELLING]

Reporter: BUT THE IRISH

PARLIAMENT IS SAID TO BE

FORMULATING LEGISLATION THAT

WOULD ALLOW ABORTION IF THE

MOTHER IS SUICIDAL, EVEN

THOUGH A MAJORITY OF THE

IRISH PEOPLE ARE PRO-LIFE,

THE ODDS ARE NOW STACKED

HEAVILY AGAINST THE NATION'S

PRO-LIFE LAW.

THE MOST PRO-LIFE COUNTRY

IN THE WHOLE WESTERN WORLD

IS NOW STANDING ON THE BRINK

OF ABORTION.

Reporter: THE EUROPEAN

UNION HAS BEEN PRESSURING

THE COUNTRY TO CHANGE THE

LAW.

COMPARED WITH THAT KIND OF

FIRE POWER, PRO-LIFE FORCES

CAN ONLY TAKE THEIR MESSAGE

TO THE STREETS, AND TRY TO

WUN HEARONE HEART AT A

TIME.

BUT THE FORCES AGAINST

IRELAND'S ABORTION LAW ARE

VERY STRONG.

THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT IS

FIGHTING BACK HARD.

WE CANNOT MAKE THIS THE YEAR

DIVORCE IS LEGALIZED IN

IRELAND, AND OUR PRO-LIFE IS

DESTROYED FOREVER.

Reporter: DALE HURD,

CBN NEWS, DUBLIN.

Wendy: FINALLY THIS

WEEK, CBN IS HELPING THE

VICTIMS OF THE LATEST

EARTHQUAKE IN CHINA.

George: CBN DISASTER

RELIEF TEAMS ARE GIVING OUT

RICE, TOILETRY ITEMS, AND

CLOTHES.

THE MINISTRY IS SERVING

ABOUT 140 FAMILIES IN THE

SICHUAN PROVINCE.

FOLKS, THAT'S ALL FOR THIS

WEEK'S EDITION OF CHRISTIAN

WORLD NEWS.

Wendy: UNTIL NEXT WEEK,

FROM ALL OF US HERE,

GOOD-BYE AND GOD BLESS YOU.
