MANY NATIONS INCLUDING U.S.

THEY SAID THEY COULDN'T ALLOW

THE ANARCHY.

THEY USE THE CAMPS AT

MINITERRORIST BASIS TO MURDER

AND RAPE WOMEN.

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD CALLS FOR

MORE DEMONSTRATIONS.

ANYONE THAT THINKS THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD IS GOING AWAY DOES

NOT UNDERSTAND THE BROTHERHOOD

OR IDEOLOGY.

CBN NEWS, TERRORISM ANALYST

ERICK STAKELBECK WARNS THE END

IS NOT IN SIGHT.

THIS IS A GROUP STEEP IN

VIOLENCE AND JIHAD.

THEY ARE THE ORIGINAL MODERN

ISLAMIC TERRORIST GROUP.

I PREDICT THINGS WILL GET

BLOODIER AND MORE NASTY BEFORE

THEY GET BETTER.

REPORTER: THINGS GOT MUCH

WORSE FOR EGYPT'S CHURCHES.

THEY ATTACKED BUSINESSES AND

INDIVIDUALS.

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD BLAMES

CHRISTIANS FOR OUTI IOUSTING OF MORSI.

THEY ARE ASKING CHRISTIANS

WORLDWIDE TO PRAY FOR THEIR

PROTECTION.

CBN NEWS, ERICK STAKELBECK,

JERUSALEM.

GARY, DO WE KNOW THE MUSLIM

BROTHERHOOD IS BEHIND THESE

ATTACKS.

?

YES, THEY HAVE BEEN HEARD

SAYING IF YOU SEE A CHRISTIAN,

KILL THEM.

WHY ARE THEY ATTACKING

CHURCHES?

BECAUSE THE CHRISTIANS ARE A

MINORITY.

TRADITIONALLY CHRISTIANS DO NOT

FIGHT BACK.

WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT TO LOVE OUR

ENEMIES.

THEY ARE A LIKELY TARGET.

THEY BLAME THE CHRISTIANS FOR

THE OUSTING OF MORSI EVEN THOUGH

IT WAS SECULARIST, MILLIONS IN

EGYPT RESPONSIBLE.

IT IS NOT JUST THE CHURCHES

UNDER ATTACK.

BIBLE BOOKSTORES IN CAIRO, MANY

SCHOOLS BURNED AND OTHER

CHRISTIAN INSTITUTIONS LIKE YMCA

AND MINYA.

IS THE GOVERNMENT DOING

ANYTHING TO PROTECT?

NOT REALLY.

THEY ARE MAKING SURE GOVERNMENT

STILL OPERATES.

THE GOVERNORS ARE MILITARY

PEOPLE APPOINTED RECENTLY.

IN SOME CASES THE POLICE PROTECT

THEM.

WE HAVE HEARD WHERE MUSLIMS ARE

JOINING CHRISTIANS IN JOINING

THEIR CHRISTIANS.

HOW ARE CHRISTIANS RESPONDING

TO THIS , ARE THEY IN HIDEING?

THEY ARE MARKED WITH A RED X.

THE COPTIC POPE IS LYING LOW HE

HAS BEEN IN HIDING.

HE WILL NOT HOLD MASS AT THE

CHURCH THIS WEEKEND.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IT HOLDS?

MORE ATTACKS.

MORE ATTACKS ON CHURCHES.

WE NEED TO BE IN PRAYER.

DO YOU THINK THERE WILL BE

MORE CIVIL WAR?

COULD BE SIMILAR TO WHAT WE

HAVE SEEN IN ALGERIA.

I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS ALL OUT

BLOODSHED.

LET'S PRAY IT DOESN'T HAPPEN.

NATURALLY.

LOTS OF FOLKS WATCHING.

WHAT DO YOU ENCOURAGE THEM TO

DO?

PRAY FOR OUR BROTHERS AND

SISTERS.

UNPRECEDENTED THIS MASSIVE

ATTACK ON CHURCHES.

BE IN PRAYER AND SUPPORT THEM,

TOO.

ABSOLUTELY, THANK YOU SO MUCH

GARY.

50% OR MORE.

SUPPORTERS OF ACA SAY BLUE

CROSS VIDEO IS OLD FASHIONED

FEAR MONGERING.

THEY WANT TO SAY DON'T BLAME

US.

DON'T IMPOSE NEW TAXES.

ON THE OTHER HAND THEY DO WANT

PEOPLE TO ENROLL IN THEIR PLAN.

YOUNGER HEALTHIER AMERICANS

WOULD PAY THE TAX BECAUSE IT IS

CHEAPER.

LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

MEANWHILE THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION MISSED ONE-THIRD

CAPS ON OUT OF POCKET COSTS

UNTIL 2015.

WHATEVER IS LEFT GETS PASSED ON

TO YOU, THE CONSUMER.

LEGISLATION THAT WOULD END A

BAND ON POLITICAL ENDORSEMENTS

FROM THE PULPIT.

CURRENT LAW STIFLES SPEECHES OF

PASTORS.

TAX DEDUCTIBLE DONATIONS DURING

SPEECHES -- THERE IS NO NEED TO

INTERTWINE RELIGION AND POLITICS

FURTHER.

OFFICIALS FROM OREGON FOLLOWING

UP ON A COMPLAINT A GAY COUPLE

BAKERY.

THE OWNERS OF SWEET CAKES BY

MELISSA REFUSED.

BUREAU OF LABOR AND INDUSTRIES

DECIDED TO INVESTIGATE.

EXEMPTIONS FROM THE LAW EXTEND

TO RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS BUT

NOT PRIVATE BUSINESS OWNERS.

COMING UP, A LOVE STORY LIKE YOU

HAVE NEVER SEEN BEFORE.

A CHILD ABANDONED BY HIS PARENTS

AND DESTINED TO DIE.

SEE HOW THIS COUPLE RESCUED BABY

ADAM.

AND WELCOME BACK, THERE ARE

MORE CHALLENGES FOR A BABY BORN

SEVERELY DEFORMED.

LAST YEAR WE BROUGHT YOU THE

STORY OF BABY ADAM.

HE WAS GIVEN A SECOND CHANCE

THANKS TO LOVE FROM TOTAL

STRANGERS, LORIE JOHNSON HAS THE

UPDATE AND THE DIFFICULTIES THAT

LIE AHEAD.

WHEN ADAM WAS BORN IN A

CHRISTIAN INDIA, HE WAS SEVERELY

DEFORMED.

HIS FAMILY THREATENED TO KILL

HIM.

HOSPITAL EMPLOYEES ADOPTED ADAM

AND QUICKLY FOUND CHRISTIANS IN

AMERICA WHO HELPED HIM LIKE DR.

JOHN VAN ALT WHO SPEAR HEADED

HIS TREATMENT.

GIVING DEEPLY SACRIFICIALLY

IS ONE OF THE GREATEST GOD SENTS

WE CAN HAVE.

A YEAR AND A HALF LATER ADAM

IS DOING GREAT.

HE LAUGHS A LOT.

LEARNS, CRAWLS EVERYWHERE AND

HAD A NEW BROTHER, ELIOT.

WHEN I LOOK BACK ROMANS 8:28,

ALL THINGS WORK FOR GOOD.

THAT IS FOR ME, JESSICA AND ADAM

AND ELIOT.

DESPITE HIS PROGRESS, ADAM

CAN'T EAT NORMALLY BECAUSE HE

WAS BORN WITHOUT THE ROOF OF HIS

MOUTH.

FOR THAT REASON HE CAN'T TALK,

EITHER.

EVEN THOUGH HE DESPERATELY WANTS

TO COMMUNICATE.

HE CAN'T SPEAK FORMED WORDS

SO THE AIR COMES OUT LOOSELY.

HE NEEDS HIS PALATE REPAIRED.

HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SPEAK

UNDERSTANDABLY.

THE FIRST SOMETIME HE SAYS

"MOMMY OR DADDY"

I CAN JUST SEE THEM BREAKING

DOWN IN TEARS.

ADAM WAS SUPPOSED TO HAVE HIS

PALATE REPAIRED EARLIER THIS

SUMMER, THEIR WASN'T ENOUGH

MONEY.

IT WAS POSTPONED TO AUGUST 23RD.

SINCE HE IS A CITIZEN OF

INDIA, HE DOES NOT HAVE HEALTH

INSURANCE.

HIS PARENTS ARE RELYING ON

DONATIONS FROM THE PUBLIC TO PAY

FOR THEIR SON'S TREATMENT.

THE NEEDED MONEY IS $150,000.

WE HAVE CLOSE TO $100,000.

THIS MAYBE THE LAST TIME ADAM

NEEDS FINANCIAL HELP.

NEXT YEAR HE IS EXPECTED TO

BECOME A U.S. CITIZEN, NASAL

RECONSTRUCTION, PROSTHETIC LEGS

AND NEW HANDS FOR A TIGHTER

GRIP, LORIE JOHNSON, CBN NEWS.

ADAM, GO TO OUR WEBSITE

UP NEXT, A PRO-CHOICE STATE WITH

A DIFFERENT ANGLE.

SEE HOW REAL ALTERNATIVES IS

SAVING LIVES IN PENNSYLVANIA.

WELCOME BACK TO CBN NEWS,

TODAY, MANY STATES CONTROLLED BY

POLITICIANS THAT SUPPORT

ABORTION.

PENNSYLVANIA IS USING THEIR TAX

PAYING DOLLARS TO GIVE A CHOICE

FOR LIFE.

AS PAUL STRAND REPORTS IT IS

WORKING.

REPORTER: TWENTY-FIVE YEARS

AGO THIS WOMAN FOUND HERSELF

PREGNANT AND AT ODDS WITH ANGRY

PARENTS.

THEY WERE FORCING ME TO HAVE

AN ABORTION.

HER BOYFRIEND DIDN'T WANT HER

TO HAVE THE BABY, EITHER.

THESE WOMEN GAVE HER A PLACE TO

LIVE, EDUCATION AND

ENCOURAGEME

ENCOURAGEMENT MY MOM SAID I

WOULD END UP ON WELFARE.

THESE TWO WOMEN BECAME THE

SURROGATE MOTHERS.

WITH ALL THE LOVE AND

ENCOURAGEMENT, THOSE TWO LADIES.

CENTERS LIKE GENESIS CAN HELP

WOMEN SAY NO TO ABORTION.

IT IS NOT EASY WHEN ABORTION

PROVIDERS AND PLANNED PARENTHOOD

ARE ALIGNED WITH THAT THINKING.

THE STATE USES TAX PAYOR

DOLLARS TO HELP PRO-LIFE

ALTERNATIVES, FOR 17 YEARS, THE

CHARITY REAL ALTERNATIVES HAS

BEEN DIRECTING 5-6 MILLION

DOLLARS A YEAR TO THE CENTERS

ACROSS THE STATE.

THESE HAVE HELPED BRING

PENNSYLVANIA'S ABORTION RATE

DOWN SOME 7%.

THE SUCCESS LED 14 OTHER STATES

TO ASK FOR HELP IN SETTING UP

SIMILAR PROGRAMS.

ONE OF THE BIGGEST SUPPORTERS

TOM CORBIT.

HE BRINGS A PERSONAL CONNECTION:

HIS DAUGHTER AND SON-IN-LAW

ADOPTED A LITTLE BOY.

WHEN LIAM GETS UP ON MY KNEE,

I THANK GOD EVERYDAY THAT YOUNG

WOMAN DECIDED TO KEEP THE BABY

AND NOT HAVE THE BABY ABORT D

BECAUSE I HAVE THIS PRECIOUS

LITTLE FELLA.

REAL ALTERNATIVES PROGRAM

CAME TO THE RESCUE OF

PENNSYLVANIA MOM JAMIE FAIR.

SHE BECAME PREGNANT WITH HER

FOURTH CHILD AS HER HUSBAND LEFT

HER.

HER FUTURE LOOKED BLEAKED.

I DID HAVE A MEDICAL ISSUE

THEY FELT IT WOULDN'T BE

CONDUCIVE TO MY LIFE IF I WOULD

GO AHEAD WITH THE PREGNANCY.

SHORT OF MONEY, JAMIE CAME TO

TRIFREE LIFE CENTER LOOKING FOR

A CRIB.

SHE GOT MORE THAN SHE AND HER

FAMILY NEEDED.

THEY WOULD GET TOYS AND

CLOTHES AND THINGS THEY NEEDED.

MOST IMPORTANTLY THEY WOULD GET

THE LOVE THEY NEEDED.

VERA IS THE HEAD OF THE

PROGRAM.

THEY LOVE THESE WOMEN AS IF

THEY WERE THEIR OWN DAUGHTER.

MOST ABORTIONS HAPPEN BECAUSE

WOMEN FEEL FORCED INTO THEM

BECAUSE OF LACK OF SUPPORT.

THEY SAID IF ONE PERSON

HELPED THEM DURING THE CRISIS

PREGNANCY, THEY WOULDN'T HAVE

HAD THE ABORTION.

87% SAID THEY WOULDN'T ABORT

EVEN IF THEY WERE PRESSURED TO.

NOW THE WOMAN FEELS SHE HAS

SOMEONE ON THEIR SIDE.

THEREFORE SHE IS FREE TO MAKE

THE DECISIONS SHE WANTS TO MAKE.

EVERY THIRD PERSON HAS BEEN

KILLED BY ABORTION.

IT IS SCARY TO THINK OF ALL

THE PEOPLE THAT COULD HAVE BEEN

HERE BUT NOT.

JESSICA SHARES ADVICE FOR

PREGNANT YOUNG WOMEN.

PROBABLY GOING TO BE REALLY

SCARY.

IF YOU PULL THROUGH WITH IT, IT

IS THE BEST THING EVER.

JESSICA SAYS THIS BECAUSE HER

MOTHER IS NORENE WHO 25 YEARS

AGO SOUGHT HELP AND FOUGHT HER

FAMILY AND BOYFRIEND TO KEEP THE

BABY.

IT IS DIFFERENT IN PENNSYLVANIA.

THEY ARE PRO-CHOICE BECAUSE THEY

ARE OFFERING WOMEN REAL

ALTERNATIVES, PAUL STRAND, CBN

NEWS, REPORTING FROM HARRISBURG,

PENNSYLVANIA.

AND FINALLY THIS HOUR, ST.

AUGUST -- WE CAUGHT UP WITH ONE

WOMAN THAT DECIDED TO INSPIRE

OTHER CHRISTIANS TO LIVE THEIR

FAITH TO THE FULLEST.

IT HAS BEEN A LONG WALK FOR DAN

RYANKIE.

99 DAYS, 225 MILES, 5 MILLION

FOOTSTEPS.

IN MAY, HE STOOD ON OREGON

BEACH AT THE PACIFIC OCEAN AND

TURNED EAST.

MORE THAN A KROS CROSS COUNTRY

HIKE.

IT IS A PERSONAL JOURNEY TO

GET CLOSER TO GOD.

HE GROUP UP IN A CATHOLIC

CHURCH.

NOW HE HOPES TO SPREAD THE

FEELING BUT ENCOURAGING OTHER

CHRISTIANS TO FEARLESSLY LIVE

OUT THEIR FAITH.

WHEN YOU HEAR NEGATIVE ON THE

NEWS, SOMETIMES IT CAN KIND OF

BE DEPRESSING.

PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR

SOMETHING, SOMETHING THAT WILL

INSPIRE THEM AND GOD HAS ALLOWED

THIS TRIP TO DO THAT.

DAN IS NOT A PREACHER.

HE LETS HIS SIGN DO THE TALKING.

IT PEAKED THE CURIOSITY FOR A

LOT OF PEOPLE ALONG HIS

THREE-MONTH JOURNEY.

I SAW THE BACKPACK, WHAT ARE

YOU DOING?

IT IS INCREDIBLE.

THAT IS WHAT OUR COUNTRY IS

LACKING.

WHAT?

THE LORD.

[LAUGHTER].

THOUGH IT HAS BEEN LONELY,

DAN FELT THE KINDNESS OF

STRANGERS, FREE MEALS, FREE

BEDS, CUP OF COFFEE OR

ENCOURAGING WORD.

A LOT OF GOOD PEOPLE OUT

THERE WHAT I COME TO FIND.

A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT TOOK CARE

OF ME ALONG THE WAY A LOT OF

DIFFERENT WAYS, CONVERSATION,

COFFEE, BREAKFAST, SMALL OR BIG

DONATION.

HIS LONG ROAD ENDED AT

VIRGINIA BEACH BOARD WALK,

FEELING THE COOL WATER THAT

RINSED OFF DIRT AND SWEAT.

SORT OF LIKE A BAPTISM, HE NOW

BEGINS LIFE A NEW.

WE ARE INDEED INSPIRED.

THAT IS GOING TO DO IT FOR THIS

EDITION OF "CBN NEWS TODAY."
