TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" TEXAS

NOW HAS ONE OF THE TOUGHEST

ABORTION LAWS IN THE COUNTRY.

WHAT IS NEXT THERE IN THE

ABORTION BATTLE?

PLUS DETROIT GOES BANKRUPT.

ARE THE CITY'S FINANCIAL

PROBLEMS ITS GREATEST CHALLENGE?

IT IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST

EVENTS FOR SCOUTS.

WE'LL SHOW YOU HOW IT HAS BECOME

A GREAT NEW ADVENTURE THIS YEAR.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH." GOOD EVENING

EVERYONE I AM GEORGE THOMAS.

AND I AM LORIE JOHNSON.

EVEN AS TEXAS WORKS TO IMPLEMENT

ITS NEW 20-WEEK ABORTION BAN

LAW, THERE IS WORD OF A STRICTER

LAW ON THE HORIZON.

THAT'S RIGHT, REPUBLICAN

PRO-LIFE LEADERS ARE INTRODUCING

ABORTION AFTER SIX WEEKS AS SOON

AS A FETAL HEART BEAT IS DETECT

DETECTED FOR 2015 WHEN THE

LEGISLATURE MEETS AGAIN.

MEANWHILE THE NEW LAW.

GARY LANE HAS TONIGHT'S TOP

STORY.

REPORTER: SUPPORTIVE

LEGISLATURES WATCH, TEXAS

GOVERNOR RICK PERRY SIGNED

ABORTION LAW H2 INTO LAW.

THIS IS A MOMENTOUS DAY FOR

THE CAUSE OF LIFE.

THIS WILL LITERALLY CHANGE

THE LIVES OF MILLIONS IN TEXAS.

REPORTER: IT IS ILLEGAL AFTER

FIVE MONTHS OF PREGNANCY.

IT IS OUR RESPONSIBILITY AND

DUTY TO GIVE VOICE TO THE

UNBORN.

REPORT

REPORTER: PRO-ABORTION

LEADERS SAY IT WILL HURT THEM.

THEY ARE DOING EVERYTHING

THEY CAN TO DESTROY ANY RIGHTS

WOMEN HAVE.

REPORTER: LEGISLATION

REQUIRES ABORTION CLINICS TO

FOLLOW HEALTH REGULATIONS AND

MANDATES THEY HAVE ADMITTING

PRIVILEGES.

ONLY FIVE OF 42 ABORTION CLINICS

HAVE THOSE CAPABILITIES.

A GROUP OF PRO-ABORTION

ADVOCATES RALLIED AT THE TEXAS

STATE CAPITAL.

THEY INSIST THE TRUE GOAL IS TO

PREVENT LEGAL ABORTIONS IN THE

STATE.

MY HANGER IS A WIRE HANGER,

THAT IS WHAT WE ARE GOING TO GO

BACK TO IF WOMEN DO NOT HAVE

ACCESS TO SAFE LEGAL, ACCESSIBLE

ABORTIONS.

GOVERNOR PERRY SAYS IT IS

SENSIBLE.

AT THE END OF THE DAY, ANYONE

IN THE STATE OF TEXAS IS DOING

SO IN A FACILITY THAT MEETS

SAFETY GUIDELINES.

THAT IS REASONABLE.

THAT IS COMMON SENSE.

MOMENTS LATER, PLANNED

PARENTHOOD ANNOUNCED IT WILL

CLOSE THREE TEXAS CLINICS,

BRIAN, HUNTSVILLE AND LUFKIN.

THE BILL GOES INTO EFFECT IN

OCTOBER.

TEXAS ABORTION CLINICS HAVE

UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2014 TO MEET THE

NEW GUIDELINES, GARY LANE, CAB

CAN BE NEWS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA WANTED TO

PROVIDE CONTEXT TO THE

CONTROVERSY THAT FOLLOWED.

WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT,

JENNIFER WISHON, HOW DID THE

PRESIDENT HANDLE IT?

REPORTER: LORIE, IN THE WAKE

OF THE DEATH OF TRAYVON MARTIN,

THE PRESIDENT IS URGING

AMERICANS TO SEARCH THEIR SOULS

IN THE MIDST OF THE MOST

COMPREHENSIVE COMMENTS ON RACE

WE HAVE HEARD FROM THE NATION'S

FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN

PRESIDENT.

WHEN MARTIN WAS SHOT, MR. OBAMA

SAID THE YOUNG MAN COULD HAVE

BEEN HIS SON.

TODAY HE SAID TRAYVON MARTIN

COULD HAVE BEEN HIM 35 YEARS

AGO.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: THERE ARE

VERY FEW AFRICAN-AMERICAN MEN IN

THIS COUNTRY WHO HAVEN'T HAD THE

EXPERIENCE OF BEING FOLLOWED

WHEN THEY WERE FOLLOWED WHEN

THEY WERE SHOPPING IN A STORE.

VERY FEW AFRICAN-AMERICAN

HAVEN'T HAD THE APPEARANCE OF

WALK ACROSS THE STREET AND

HEARING LOCKS CLICK ON THE DOORS

OF CARS.

THAT HAPPENS TO ME AT LEAST

BEFORE I WAS A SENATOR.

REPORTER: PRESIDENT SAYS

THERE IS A LOT OF PAIN IN THE

AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY AND

IT WILL SHOOTING AND TRIAL

VIEWED BY BLACK AMERICANS

THROUGH A VISION OF HISTORY THAT

DOESN'T GO AWAY AND HOPES

SOMETHING POSITIVE WILL GROW

FROM MARTIN'S DEATH.

PRESIDENT SUGGEST PROVIDING

TRAINING TO FOSTER TRUST IN THE

JUSTICE SYSTEM AND LIKE STATES

TO EXAM THEIR LAWS TO SEE IF

THEIR ENCOURAGE CONFRONTATIONS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I JUST ASK

PEOPLE TO CONSIDER IF TRAYVON

MARTIN WAS OF AGE AND ARMED,

COULD HE HAVE STOOD HIS GROUND

ON THAT SIDEWALK?

AND DO WE ACTUALLY THINK THAT HE

WOULD HAVE BEEN JUSTIFIED IN

SHOOTING MR. ZIMMERMAN WHO

FOLLOWED HIM IN A CAR BECAUSE HE

FELT THREATENED?

IF THE ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION

IS AT LEAST AMBIGUOUS, IT SEEMS

TO ME WE MIGHT WANT TO EXAM

THOSE KINDS OF LAWS.

REPORTER: PRESIDENT OBAMA

SAYS HE BELIEVES RACE RELATIONS

ARE GETTING BETTER AND DOESN'T

THINK IT IS PRODUCTIVE WHEN

POLITICIANS CONDUCT A

CONVERSATION BUT ASKED

AMERICANS.

LORIE, DID THE PRESIDENT

COMMENT ON THE VERDICT?

REPORTER: HE RESPECTS THE

DECISION THE JURY REACHED,

HOWEVER THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

CONTINUES ITS INVESTIGATION INTO

WHETHER ZIMMERMAN VIOLATED

MARTIN'S CIVIL RIGHTS.

JENNIFER, THANK YOU.

OFFICE OF THE CHIEF COUNCIL

OF IRS IS IMPLICATED IN THE

LATEST SCANDAL.

CARTER SAID THEY TARGETED

APPLICATIONS BY TEA PARTY GROUPS

FOR SCRUTINY.

MANY ARE ANGRY FOR NOT

ADDRESSING THE SCANDALS.

WHEN YOU HAVE THE SPOKES

PERSON FOR THE PRESIDENT OF THE

UNITED STATES MAKE A DEFINITIVE

STATEMENT THAT IT WAS TWO ROGUE

AGENTS AND POKE AT THESE PEOPLE

AND HAVE NO POWER TO DO ANYTHING

ABOUT IT.

HOW DARE ANYBODY SUGGEST WE ARE

AT THE END OF THIS.

THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THIS.

WE HAVE TO MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF

IT.

WE NEED TO GET TO THE BOTTOM OF

IT CH I AM TIRED OF THIS

ADMINISTRATION TO KEEP HAVING

THESE HEARINGS, FAST AND

FURIOUS, BENGHAZI, IRS, WHY?

EACH TIME THERE IS A PATTERN.

NOTHING HERE.

MOVE ON.

IT IS NOT TRUE!

COMMITTEES TOP DEMOCRATS

ELIJAH COMING HE DOES WANT TO

FOLLOW THE IRS SCANDAL TO ITS

CONCLUSION BUT THE REPUBLICANS

SHOULD STOP ACCUSING THE WHITE

HOUSE.

CRAFT STORE HOBBY LOBBY WAS

GRANTED A TEMPORARY EXEMPTION.

'OBAMACARE' REQUIRES EMPLOYERS

TO PROVIDE MORNING AFTER PILL

AND BIRTH CONTROL FREE OF CHARGE

TO EMPLOYEES.

CEO GREEN SAID HE NEVER THOUGHT

HE WOULD HAVE TO SUE THE COUNTRY

OVER THIS.

THERE ARE MORE THAN 60 SEPARATE

LAWSUITS CHALLENGING THE BIRTH

CONTROL MANDATE.

A FEDERAL JUDGE?

INDIANA WILL DECIDE WHETHER

DISPLAYING CROSSES ON A POPULAR

RIVER FRONT IS OKAY.

AMERICAN CIVILITIES UNION IS

SUING SAYING IT VIOLATES CHURCH

AND STATE.

DETROIT IS THE LATEST CITY TO

FILE FOR BANKRUPTCY.

DETROIT WAS KNOWN FOR PRODUCING

FAST CARS AND GREAT MOTOWN

SOUND.

ONCE HOME TO 1.8 MILLION, THE

CITY BARELY HAS 700,000 LIVING

IN IT AND NEARLY 80,000

BUILDINGS SIT EMPTY.

MURDER RATE AT HIGHEST IN 40

YEARS AND RESIDENTS WAIT 58

MINUTES FOR POLICE TO RESPOND TO

CALLS.

NOTHING CHANGES FROM THE

STANDPOINT OF THE ORDINARY

CITIZEN'S PERSPECTIVE.

DETROIT'S CITY MANAGER SAID

IT WILL REMAIN OPEN.

LATER ON, ON "NEWSWATCH," WE'LL

HAVE A STORY OF A GROUP OF

CHRISTIANS THAT ARE TRYING TO

BRING LIFE AND HOPE BACK TO

DETROIT.

FROM MOUNT HOPE, WEST VIRGINIA,

I AM CHUCK HOLTON FOR CBN NEWS.

COMING UP, HOW ONE OF THE

NATION'S GREATEST PROVIDERS IN

HOMES OF NEED IS GOING GREEN TO

HELP FAMILIES IN THE LONG RUN.

HOUSING SECTOR HAS BEEN

STRENGTHENING IN RECENT MONTHS.

HOWEVER THE MONTH OF JUNE SAW SA

DROP BY ALMOST 100,000 SINCE

MAY.

LOWEST NUMBER SINCE AUGUST 2012.

MOST OF THE DROUGHT OCCURRED IN

CLOSE TO TWO MILLION PEOPLE

HAVE A PLACE TO CALL HOME

BECAUSE OF HABITAT FOR

HUMANITIES MISSION.

HEATHER SELLS REPORTS, HABITAT

FOUND A NEW WAY TO HELP

HOMEOWNERS SAVE MONEY.

LAST YEAR, HABITAT FOR

HUMANITY BUILD CLOSE TO 5,000

HOUSES MAKING IT THE COUNTRY'S 6

LARGEST RESIDENTIAL BUILDER

THANKS TO VOLUNTEER HOURS,

CONTRIBUTIONS AND INTEREST FREE

MORTGAGES.

NOW THEY ARE GAINING A NEW

REPUTATION, THEY ARE GOING

GREEN.

BEHIND THE BRICK FOUNDATION,

THERE IS A TWO-INCH FOLK

INSULATION

REPORTER: THIS IS A NEW

GENERATION OF HOMES IN

NASHVILLE.

EXTRA INSULATION IN THE WALLS

AND UNDER THE SLAB.

IT IS ALSO INTEGRATED INTO THE

APPLIANCES.

WE HAVE ENERGY STAR RATED

DISHWASHER.

PLUMBING FIXTURES ARE RATED

AS WELL.

THEY CAUSE THE OPENINGS TO BE

SMALLER, STILL GET ADEQUATE

PRESSURE.

EVEN THE CEILING IS ENERGY

EFFICIENT THANKS TO BEING BLOWN

IN.

HABITAT IS HOPING MORE OF ITS

AFFILIATES WILL GET ON BOARD

WITH BUILDING ENERGY EFFICIENT

HOMES.

IT IS NOT ONLY A GOOD MOVE FOR

THE PLANET, BUT A GOOD FINANCIAL

WIN FOR HOMEOWNERS.

MY CHEAPER ELECTRIC BILL WAS

-- HABITAT HOMEOWNER CASEY

GREER SAYS ENERGY EFFICIENCY IS

SAVING HER A BUNDLE.

NOW SHE SPENDS LESS THAN $100.

WHEN I FIRST GOT IT, SURELY

IT IS NOT RIGHT.

56 BUCKS, REALLY?

FOR GREER AND TWO GIRLS,

ADDITIONAL MEANS STABILITY AND

SECURITY.

SHE LOST HER JOB SHORTLY AFTER

THE FAMILY MOVED IN.

GREER MADE IT TO HER JOB SEARCH.

GOING GREEN COSTS SEVERAL

THOUSAND EXTRA PER HOME AND ADDS

A FEW EXTRA HOOPS TO JUMP

THROUGH.

TAKES MORE TIME AND IT IS A

LOT MORE METICULOUS BUILDING.

IT IS WORTH IT, HE SAYS TO

SEE HOMEOWNERS SETTLE IN HOMES

MORE AFFORDABLE THAN EVER AND

KNOWING THEY AND THE NEXT

GENERATION WILL BENEFIT.

REPORTING IN NASHVILLE, HEATHER

FINANCIAL ISSUES JUST THE TIP OF

THE ICEBURG.

CHUCK HOLTON REPORTS GOD IS

AT WORK TO RESTORE MOTOR CITY.

REPORTER: SOME CALL THIS THE

DEAD ZONE, AREA OF NEAR COMPLETE

DESTRUCTION, MANY MILES ACROSS,

NO SCHOOLS OR HOSPITAL.

FEW PUBLIC SERVICES.

CRIME IS THE ONLY GROWTH

INDUSTRY, MURDER RATE HIGHER

THEN THAT OF COLUMBIA.

THIS ISN'T SYRIA, AFGHANISTAN,

OR.

IT IS DETROIT.

SOME ARE LEAVING.

SOME CANNOT.

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THERE

ARE PLACES IN AMERICA THAT LOOK

LIKE THIS.

THIS IS A HISTORIC BUILDING.

IT USED TO BE WHERE PACKERS AND

STEWED BAKERS ARE MADE.

TODAY IT LOOKS LIKE ZOMBIE

APOCALYPSE MOVIE.

MANY URBAN AREAS ARE VIRTUAL

WASTE LAND.

HALF ARE FUNCTIONALLY

ILLITERATE.

CITY HAS SO FAR AVOIDED

BANKRUPTCY.

ITS LONG TERM DEAD IS GREATER

THEN THAT OF ZIMBABWE OR EL

SALVADOR.

LACK OF JOBS IS LACK OF TAX

REVENUE.

DEEP CUTS IN FIRE AND POLICE.

WE HAVE LOST A THOUSAND

OFFICES IN THE LAST FIVE TO SIX

YEARS.

THEY CAN'T PROTECT THE CITY

WHICH NOW HAS THE HIGHEST RATE

OF VIOLENT CRIME IN AMERICA.

HOW DO YOU KEEP A CITY SAFE

WITH NO TAX SPACE?

POPULATION RUNNING OUT FRONT,

BACK, AND SIDE DOOR, WHAT DO YOU

DO TO STOP THE BLEEDING?

REPORTER: I AM STANDING 100

YARDS INSIDE DETROIT CITY

LIMITS, A DOZEN HOMES ABANDONED

OR BURNED OUT.

LIKE THAT.

ROOT CAUSE MAY HAVE LESS TO DO

WITH THE ECONOMIC DOWNTURN AND

MORE TO DO WITH GOVERNMENT

CORRUPTION.

MORE GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE

HASN'T HELPED.

BAILOUT FUNDS TOTALLY BAIL OUT

DOLLARS.

DETROIT HAS HIGHEST RATE OF

POVERTY AND WELFARE.

I DON'T KNOW HOW LONG I CAN

STAY, UP TO THIS POINT IT IS MY

COMMITMENT, THIS IS MY HOME.

AS ONE OF MY CO-WORKERS SAID SHE

SAID I LOVE THE CITY, IT DIDN'T

LOVE ME BACK.

REPORTER: WHERE THE

GOVERNMENT FAILED, PRIVATE

CHARITIES STEPPING IN.

DETROIT RESCUE MINISTRY

MISSIONARIES PROVIDES THOUSANDS

FOOD AND SHELTER, SOMETHING

POWER TO TURN THE TIDE.
