TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" SYRIA

TAKES CENTER STAGE, WHAT WORLD

LEADERS HAVE TO SAY DURING THE G

20 SUMMIT.

PLUS WHY SOME WORRY DEFENDING

THE PRESIDENT'S HEALTH CARE PLAN

COULD MAKE YOU PAY MORE.

AND CBN NEWS TAKES YOU INSIDE

INDIA, ONE OF THE MOST DANGEROUS

PLACES IN THE WORLD TO BE A

WOMAN.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

"NEWSWATCH."

GOOD EVENING I AM MARK

MARTIN.

AND I AM WENDY GRIFFITH.

THERE IS SKEPTICISM AROUND THE

GLOBE ABOUT THE PRESIDENT'S PLAN

TO STRIKE SYRIA.

FROM G 20 SUMMIT IN ST.

PETERSBURG, THEY ARE MAKING THE

CASE THAT MILITARY ACTION IS

NEEDED.

AS HEATHER SELLS REPORTS MANY

WORLD LEADERS AND CONGRESS NOT

SOLD.

REPORTER: PRESIDENT OBAMA MET

WITH ONE OF HIS CHIEF OPPONENTS,

RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR

PUTIN.

PUTIN SAYS THE U.S. SHOULD WAIT

ON CHEMICAL REPORT.

ALSO THE U.S. SHOULD NOT TAKE

ACTION UNLESS THE U.N.

AUTHORIZES A STRIKE.

RUSSIA HAS BLOCKED ANY U.N.

RESOLUTIONS.

THE PRESIDENT WILL CONTINUE TO

PRESS.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: I THINK

INTERNATIONAL ACTION WOULD BE

MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE AND

ULTIMATELY END DEATHS MUCH MORE

RAPIDLY IF RUSSIA TAKES A

DIFFERENT APPROACH TO THESE

PROBLEMS.

REPORTER: OTHER WORLD LEADERS

ARE ALSO RESISTING WITH THE

GERMAN PRESIDENT SAYING NO ONE

KNOWS WHO IS BEHIND THE POISON

GAS IN SYRIA AND THE POPE

SPEAKING OUT OF THE FUTILE

PURSUIT OF MILITARY ACTION.

UNCLEAR WHETHER THE FULL SENATE

OR HOUSE WILL BACK THE

PRESIDENT.

I SEE A HORRIBLE TRAGEDY.

I DON'T SEE OUR INVOLVEMENT WILL

LESSEN THE STRATEGY.

REPORTER: PRESIDENT OBAMA IS

EXPECTED TO ADDRESS SYRIA IN THE

NEXT FEW DAYS AND LEFT OPEN THE

POSSIBILITY HE WILL ATTACK

WHETHER OR NOT CONGRESS

APPROVES.

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

DR. PAUL BONNICHELLI JOINS US

WITH MORE.

DOCTOR, WOULD YOU SAY THE G 20

SUMMIT HAS BEEN HIJACKED BY THIS

ISSUE?

I THINK SO.

ESPECIALLY WHILE THE PRESIDENT

OF THE UNITED STATES WAITS ON

WHETHER OR NOT HE IS GOING TO DO

ANY.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS GOING TO

COME OUT OF THIS

THIS WILL BE THE G 20

SUMMIT, WILL THE FRENCH

PRESIDENT GET INVOLVED IN

CONVERSATIONS TRYING TO MOVE

RUSSIANS TO BE MORE AMENABLE TO

WHAT THE AMERICANS WANT TO DO?

ECONOMIC ISSUES, I DON'T EXPECT

THERE TO BE A LOT.

MAYBE ACKNOWLEDGING ANOTHER TWO

TO THREE YEARS OF SLOW GROWTH.

BRAZIL IS NOT GROWING AS FAST AS

HOPED.

WHAT DO YOU THINK A STRIKE

WILL HAVE ON GLOBAL ECONOMY?

IT IS TYPICAL ON GAS PRICES.

IF THIS TURNS OUT TO BE A WIDER

AND LONGER OPERATION, NOT 10 OR

16, BUT 90 OR MORE, IT COULD BE

A REAL DRAG.

IT THREATENS THE TRADE ROOTS

THAT MATTER AND THE SHIPPING

THAT HAS TO AVOID THE AREA.

THE SITUATION HAS DISPLAYED

TENSE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN

RUSSIA AND THE U.S. WHAT IS YOUR

TAKE ON PUTIN SAYING IF WE DO

BOMB SYRIA, HE IS GOING TO

REBUILD IT.

WHOSE SIDE IS HE ON?

HE IS ON HIS SIDE.

UNFORTUNATE THING, THUGS LIKE

ASSAD COULD BE DEALT WITH IF

RUSSIANS AND AMERICANS CAME

TOGETHER.

CHINESE WOULD JUST HANG OUT.

IN THE EYES OF THE RUSSIANS

DIMINISHES THEIR STATURE.

THEY BECOME LACKEES OF THE U.S.

IT IS NOT GOOD FOR U.S. HE IS

FLEXING HIS MUSCLES?

WE HAVE TO OPPOSE ANYTHING YOU

ARE FOR.

ABSOLUTELY.

HE HAS FOUND A WEAK PRESIDENT HE

THINKS HE CAN PUSH AROUND.

HE HAS PROVEN IT.

WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE

FRIENDS.

IT WOULD.

THANK YOU FOR BEING WITH US.

MARK?

MOSTLY CHRISTIAN VILLAGE IN

WESTERN SYRIA HAS BEEN LINKED BY

AL-QAEDA LINKED FIGHTERS.

THE SYRIAN OBSERVATORY FOR HUMAN

RIGHTS CONFIRMS THE ATTACK.

DESPITE HEAVY ARMY PRESENCE, THE

REBELS LEFT A TOWN EARLY TODAY.

HEAVY CLASHES CONTINUE IN

SURROUNDING MOUNTAINS.

HEAD OF EGYPT HAS SURVIVED

ASSASSINATION ATTACK.

A NEARBY CAR EXPLODED REPORTEDLY

SET OFF BY REMOTE CONTROL.

IBRIHAAM WAS IN THE CAR.

HE IS IN CHARGE OF EGYPT'S

POLICE FORCE.

PRESIDENT OF MEXICO SAYS --

IT WOULD CONSTITUTE AN ILLEGAL

ACT.

IT CITES DOCUMENTS LEAKED BY

EDWARD SNOWDEN INDICATING NSA

MONITORED MEXICAN AND BRAZILIAN

LEADERS.

MEXICO IS CALLING ON OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION TO INVESTIGATE.

MEXICAN PRESIDENT PLANS TO SPEAK

TO PRESIDENT OBAMA DURING THE G

20 SUMMIT.

GUN OWNER'S LOBBY FILED

AMICUS BRIEF AGAINST THE PROGRAM

THAT COLLECTS PHONE RECORDS.

NRA IS COLLECTING A NATIONAL

REGISTRY.

NRA WARNS SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM

VIOLA

VIOLATE'S AMERICA'S RIGHTS TO

FREE SPEECH.

SEVERAL NEWS ORGANIZATIONS HAVE

JOINED IN.

CONSERVATIVE ACTIVIST ARE

PUSHING FOR REPUBLICANS IN

CONGRESS TO STOP FUNDING OF

'OBAMACARE.' SOME ANALYST WARN

IT COULD MEAN HIGHER PRICES FOR

HEALTH CARE.

CONSERVATIVE CRITICS SAY MOST

LAWMAKERS REFUSE TO MAKE MOVES

TO STRIP 'OBAMACARE'S FUNDING.

THIS WAS HELD OUTSIDER RICK

CANTER'S HOME OFFICES.

HE HAS MAJORITY IN THE HOUSE.

SOON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL

GET HIT BY 'OBAMACARE'S

INDIVIDUAL MANDATE.

THE MANDATE WILL TAKE AWAY

COMPETITION AND LEAD TO HIGHER

PRICES FOR HEALTH INSURANCE.

IMAGINE ANY OTHER PRODUCT YOU

ARE GOING TO BUY, WHETHER YOU

ARE BUYING TWINKIES.

YOU WOULD HAVE $100 TWINKIES,

NOTHING YOU COULD DO ABOUT IT.

WHAT FORCES DOWN PRICES IS

PEOPLE SAYING I WON'T BUY IT.

MORE AND MORE DECISIONS TAKEN

AWAY FROM INDIVIDUAL CONSUMERS.

THINK OF ANY OTHER GOODS AND

SERVICES THAT YOU BUY.

IF SOMEONE ELSE DECIDES WHAT

THOSE SERVICES AND GOODS ARE

GOING TO BE ABOUT QUALITY, HOW

MUCH YOU CAN HAVE AND WHAT THEY

COST, THAT IS WHAT BASICALLY

MADE EASTERN EUROPE COLLAPSE.

MANY BUSINESSES, UNIONS AND

LAWMAKERS THEMSELVES ARE TRYING

TO GET EXEMPTIONS.

THEY ARE SAYING THIS LAW WILL

SHATTER WORKER'S HEALTH

INSURANCE AND DESTROY 40-HOUR

WORK WEEK.

UNIONS DON'T WANT ANYTHING TO

DO WITH IT.

ERICK CANTER EXEMPTED ITSELF

FROM IT.

ONE OF THE MAIN MESSAGES,

SOME OF THE BIGGEST PARTS OF

'OBAMACARE' ARE ABOUT TO KICK IN

AND REPUBLICAN'S LAST BEST

CHANCE TO DEFUND IT.

PAUL STRAND, CBN NEWS, REPORTING

FROM RICHMOND, VIRGINIA.

COMING UP, WE ARE INTRODUCING

YOU TO A COLLEGE STUDENT THAT IS

NOT EVEN HOLD ENOUGH TO DRIVE TO

CLASS.

GROWING NUMBER OF AMERICANS

ARE FINDING A NEW WAY TO READ

THE BIBLE ON THE INTERNET.

ACCORDING TO A SURVEY BY BONER

RESEARCH, 29% SEARCHED ON A CELL

PHONE, 17% READ IT ON AN

EREADER.

85% STILL PREFER A PRINT

VERSION.

ME TOO.

MOST KIDS ACROSS THE COUNTRY

BACK IN SCHOOL NOW.

ONE 14 YEAR OLD ISN'T.

SHE IS PREPARING TO GRADUATE

FROM COLLEGE.

CHARLENE ISRAEL BRINGS US HER

AMAZING STORY FROM GREAT LAKES,

ILLINOIS.

REPORTER: LIKE MOST

14-YEAR-OLD GIRLS, THESA LIKES

TO HAVE FUN.

MOST ARE ENTERING THEIR FRESHMAN

YEAR FROM HIGH SCHOOL COMPLETE

WITH DISCUSSIONS OF BOYS AND

LATEST FASHIONS, THIS TEEN HAS

BEEN FOCUSSING ON ATTENDING

COLLEGE, SOMETHING CHEF STARTED

AT AGE 11.

SIMILAR TO ANY ENVIRONMENT.

IT WAS FULL OF A LEARNING

EXPERIENCE.

I LOOK FORWARD TO IT.

WONDER EMERY IS HER MOTHER.

SHE NOTICED HER DAUGHTER'S

PASSION FOR LEARNING WHILE HOME

SCHOOLING HER.

I STARTED READING HER COLLEGE

MATERIAL AT SIX YEARS OLD, EIGHT

YEARS OLD.

FIRST TOPIC I READ ABOUT WAS

CONSCIOUSNESS IN SLEEP AND

DREAMS AND NEURONS IN THE BRAIN.

I THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING

STUDY.

THAT QUICKNESS ENCOURAGED HER TO

ENROLL HER IN A LOCAL COLLEGE.

ACADEMICALLY SHE WAS READY.

I DIDN'T WANT TO HINDER HER AND

LIMIT HER.

SHE WAS ABLE TO ACCOMPLISH IT

AND WENT ON AND ENCOURAGED HER

TO GO AHEAD AND MAKE THE MOST OF

IT.

MANY THINK HER APTITUDE IS

EXTRAORDINARY, THIS GIRL GENIUS

SEES HER COLLEGE EXPERIENCE AS

NOTHING NORMAL.

A LOT OF THE CLASSES DIDN'T

BRING ATTENTION TO MY AGE AT

ALL.

I JUST COMPLETED THE WORK LIKE

THE REST OF THE STUDENTS.

HIGHER THAN AVERAGE IQ, SHE

FELT AT EASE AND PREPARED TO

NAVIGATE COLLEGE LEVEL CLASSES.

I DIDN'T FEEL OVERWHELMED AT

ALL.

THEY REQUIRED FIVE PAGES OF

WORK.

IMPRESSIVE TEEN RECEIVED

NUMEROUS AWARDS AND CERTIFICATES

AND SERVES AS A STUDENT SENATOR.

HER DAY BEGINS WITH PRAYER AND

BIBLE STUDY WITH HER FAMILY

WHICH SHE SAYS IS THE KEY TO

THAT.

PROVERBS 28:5, SEEK THE LORD

AND UNDERSTAND ALL THINGS.

I AM THANKFUL.

WE DIDN'T PLAN ON THAT, IT IS

GOD'S GLORY TO GIVE US THE

WISDOM TO EVEN GO THROUGH THIS.

HER COLLEGE CAREER BEGAN HERE

AT COLLEGE OF LAKE COUNTY AND

WENT ON TO ATTEND CHICAGO AND A

3.9 GPA.

HER JOURNEY OF LEARNING IS FAR

FROM OVER.

I PLAN TO GO TO GRADUATE

SCHOOL AND GET A DOCTORATE IN

CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY.

SHE IS VERY DETERMINED TO

HELP YOUNG PEOPLE AND PEOPLE IN

GENERAL.

HOWEVER THERE IS ONE THING

SHE HOPES TO DO BEFORE HEADING

TO GRAD SCHOOL.

PLAN TO GET A PERMIT TO

DRIVE.

[LAUGHTER].

HER GOAL IS TO ONE DAY OPEN A

CLINIC WITH HER MOTHER WHO IS

CURRENTLY PURSUING A GRADUATE

DEGREE IN CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY

ALONG WITH OLDER BROTHER JEREMY.

SOME SAY THE 14-YEAR-OLD COLLEGE

GRADUATE HAS MISSED OUT ON JUST

BEING A KID, SHE WHOLEHEARTEDLY

DISAGREES.

I DO ENJOY HOBBIES AND FEEL

LIKE I LIVE IN A PURPOSEFUL

LIFE.

CHARLENE ISRAEL, CBN NEWS,

GREAT LAKES, ILLINOIS.

UP NEXT, FIGHTING AGAINST

SEX-SELECTED ABORTION IN INDIA.

IN INDIA, ONE WOMAN DIES

EVERY HOUR BECAUSE OF

DOWRY-RELATED CRIMES.

A DOWRY IS A PAYMENT THE BRIDES

FAMILY MAKES TO THE GROOM FOR

MARRIAGE.

MORE THAN 8200 WOMEN KILLED LAST

YEAR OVER DOWRY DISPUTES.

EACH YEAR THOUSANDS ARE DOUSED

WITH GASOLINE AND BURNED TO

DEATH BECAUSE GROOM OR FAMILY

FELT IT WASN'T ADEQUATE.

INDIAN LAW PROHIBITS TO GIVING

OR RECEIVING OF DOWRY BUT IT

PERSISTS.

INDIA IS THE MOST DANGEROUS

PLACE ON EARTH FOR A GIRL.

GEORGE THOMAS TRAVELED TO A

REMOTE VILLAGE IN INDIA.

REPORTER: THIS MAN HAS BEEN A

FARMER MOST HIS LIFE.

IT IS HIS OTHER JOB THAT CAUGHT

OUR ATTENTION.

HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT WHAT YOU

ARE DOING?

I FEEL BAD.

MY FATHER GAVE ME THE

INGREDIENTS.

THEY STARTED COMING TO SEE ME.

REPORTER: CBN NEWS DIDN'T

TRAVEL 11,000 MILES JUST TO DO A

STORY ABOUT HIS LIFE AS A

FARMER.

HERE IN A DUSTY VILLAGE OF

RAJASTHAN, NORTHEAST INDIA.

YOU ARE HELPING KILL THESE

BABIES.

HAVING A GIRL BABY IS LIKE A

CURSE.

FAMILY WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET

RID OF HER.

THAT IS WHEN I COME IN.

THIS IS A STORY ABOUT INDIA'S

UNWANTED GIRLS.

IN RURAL VILLAGES AND BIG

CITIES, MILLIONS OF FAMILIES ARE

TURNING TO MEN LIKE KYLASH TO

ELIMINATE A GIRL CHILD.

WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS

ILLEGAL, RIGHT?

YES.

THAT IS WHY I DO IT QUIETLY.

I GIVE THEM THE DRINK.

ABORTION IS LEGAL BUT

SEX-SELECTED ABORTION IS NOT.

THE CHILD SEX RATIOS GETTING

WORSE.

IN 2001, 27 GIRLS DOWN TO --

SOME PARTS OF THE STATE, RATIO

IS AS LOW AS 300 GIRLS.

INDIANS ARE OBSESSED WITH

HAVING A BOY.

THEY DON'T WANT TO HAVE GIRLS.

HE INHERITED THIS

RESPONSIBILITY WHEN HIS FATHER

PASSED AWAY THREE YEARS AGO.

HE SEES THREE TO FOUR WOMEN.

THIS SHOWS HOW HE MAKE IT IS

MEDICINE.

I CRUSH THE BARK AND MANGO

TREE TOGETHER INTO A PASTE-LIKE

SUBSTANCE, I MIX OTHER

INGREDIENTS AND BLACK MAGIC.

WHAT IS THE EVIDENCE IT

WORKS?

EVERY TIME HE GIVES THE

DRINK, AFTER THE ABORTION, THE

WOMAN PLACES TWO COCONUTS ON HIS

FRONT PORCH AS A WAY OF SAYING

THANK YOU FOR YOUR EFFORTS.

SEVERAL YEARS AGO THIS WOMAN

UNDERWENT AN ABORTION.

I HAD A SON AND DISCOVERED I

WAS HAVING A GIRL.

THE PRESSURE WAS SO MUCH.

THIS IS PROBABLY THE MOST

KIND OF VIOLENCE WE ARE FACING

IN ALL OF INDIAN HISTORY.

IS IT A GENOCIDE?

BASED ON GENDER.

SOME SIX MILLION FEMALES

ABORTED.

WE ARE COMING UP ON TEN

MILLION GIRLS.

MONEY IS ANOTHER BIG REASON

FAMILIES KILL THEIR DAUGHTERS.

THIS DOCTOR WORKS AT ONE OF

INDIA'S TOP HOSPITALS.

BECAUSE OF THE COUNTRY'S DOWRY

TRADITION, PARENTS MUST PAY

LARGE SUMS OF MONEY TO MARRY OFF

DAUGHTERS.

SEX-SELECTED DAUGHTERS IS A

QUICK WAY OUT.

A DAUGHTER IS CONSIDERED A

LIABILITY.

IT IS GENTLY DONE IN THE CASE OF

SECOND AND THIRD CHILD.

THIS BOOK "DISAPPEARING

DAUGHTERS"

THE KILLS IS MORE LIKE A

HOLOCAUST.

IT IS LIKE A A WHOLE GENDER

IS EXTERMINATED.

WE GENERALLY DON'T REALIZE TODAY

WHAT THE REPERCUSSIONS ARE GOING

TO BE.

VIOLENCE AND RAPE CASES

RISING AND GROWING NUMBERS

TRAFFICKED OR SOLD AS BRIBES.

INDIA HAS BANNED USE OF MEDICAL

TECHNOLOGY TO DETERMINE SEX OF

BABY.

ULTRA SOUND CLINICS ARE A

BOOMING BUSINESS.

WOMEN FIND LITTLE TROUBLE

FINDING SOMEONE TO BREAK THE

LAW.

IT IS A LOW RISK, HIGH PROFIT

BUSINESS.

WHEN A WOMAN COMES, HOW MUCH

DO YOU CHARGE FOR YOUR SERVICES?

50-100 RUPIES.

THAT IS THE EQUIVALENT OF $2?

I DON'T DO IT FOR THE MONEY.

I DO IT TO KEEP HARMONY L IN THE

COMMUNITY.

IF I DON'T, LOTS OF TROUBLE

BETWEEN FAMILY MEMBERS.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS,

RAJASTHAN, INDIA.

UP NEXT, KINDNESS OF

STRANGERS.

UNEXPECTED LETTERS THAT LEFT ONE

MOM IN TEARS.

AND FINALLY, PARENTING A

CHILD WITH SPECIAL NEEDS IS

OFTEN CHALLENGING.

SOMETIMES THE KINDNESS OF

STRANGERS HELPS PARENTS GET

THROUGH THE HARD TIMES.

YEAH.

ONE NORTH CAROLINA MOM KNOWS

THAT FIRSTHAND.

ASHLEY WAS IN A RESTAURANT WITH

HER SON, RILEY.

SHE DECIDED TO LEAVE TO ANOTHER

RESTAURANT.

THE WAITRESS TOLD HER SOMEONE

PAID FOR THEIR MEAL, GOD ONLY

GIVES SPECIAL PEOPLE TO SPECIAL

PEOPLE.

THAT NOTE IS VERY TRUE.

I WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO DO IT

WITHOUT GOD BY MY SIDE.

ASHLEY IS USED TO BE JUDGED

BY HER SON'S BEHAVIOR.

THE STRANGER'S KIND GESTURE

BROUGHT HER TO TEARS.

I TOTALLY BELIEVE THAT.

IT IS A SPECIAL PERSON AND GOD

DEFINITELY KNOWS WHO TO GIVE IT

TO.

SPECIAL CALLING.

AMEN.
