TONIGHT ON "NEWSWATCH" FIGHTING

AGAINST THE CONTRACEPTION

MANDATE.

MORE ON THE PRIESTS FOR LIFE

LAWSUIT HEARD TODAY IN THE U.S.

COURT OF APPEALS.

PLUS BRING BACK OUR GIRLS,

NEARLY 300 TO FREE

GIRLS KIDNAPPED BY BOKO HARAM.

WHY SOME SAY SCHOOLS ARE

WATCHING YOUR CHILDREN A LITTLE

TOO CLOSELY.

ALL OF THIS AND MORE TONIGHT ON

OF PRIESTS

TODAY GOT TO PRESENT THEIR CASE

IN A FEDERAL COURT.

GOOD EVENING I AM MARK MARTIN.

AND I AM LORIE JOHNSON.

THE GROUP PRIESTS FOR LIFE

SHOULDN'T BE FORCED TO GO ALONG

WITH AN ADMINISTRATION MANDATE.

THE CONTROVERSIAL CONTRACEPTION

MANDATE IS A CLEAR VIOLATION OF

MANDATE.

PAUL STRAND HAS MORE ON

TONIGHT'S TOP STORY.

REPORTER: THEY TOO COULD BE

FORCED TO SUPPORT A MANDATE

HEIR FAITH OPPOSES, PAYING FOR

OR ALLOWING THEIR INSURANCE

GROUPS PAY FOR ABORTIONS.

THEIR PRO-LIFE STAND IS THEIR

REASON FOR THEIR EXISTENCE.

WHEN A GROUP LIKE PRIESTS FOR

LIFE ARE ATTACKED, THE PENDULUM

IS SWUNG SO FAR THAT THE FEDERAL

GOVERNMENT COULD MANDATE A GROUP

OF PRIESTS TO GO AGAINST WHAT

BELIEVE.

IF THEY JUST SIGN A FORM, BUT

THE FATHER SAYS SIGNING A PAPER

WOULD BE COOPERATING WITH EVIL.

THEY WANT TO INVOLVE US BY

FILLING OUT A FORM.

THEY ARE USING THAT AS THE

AUTHORIZATION FOR THEM TO DO

WHAT SHOULD NOT BE DONE.

PACIFIC LEGAL FOUNDATION TOOK

ON 'OBAMACARE.'

IT IS REPRESENTING AN ARTIST

THAT REJECTS PAYING.

THAT SRD

MAKES THE WAY 'OBAMACARE' WAS

CREATED AND PASSED

UNCONSTITUTIONAL.

THEY MUST ORIGINAL THE HOUSE

OF REPRESENTATIVES, CHAMBER

CLOSEST TO THE PEOPLE.

THIS BILL 'OBAMACARE' ORIGINATED

IN THE SENATE.

HAT IS THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL

PROBLEM.

IF BEARDS SIDE WINS THAT

COULD GUT THE CORE OF

'OBAMACARE.'

FATHER FRANK JOINS US FROM

OUR WASHINGTON BUREAU.

FATHER, HOW DO YOU THINK IT

WENT?

I WAS PLEASANTLY SURPRISED.

WE HAD A THREE-JUDGED PANEL.

THEY WERE HARD ON THE

GOVERNMENT.

THEY SAID YOU CAN'T DETERMINE

WHAT IS OR AGAINST THE

PLAINTIFFS.

IN A LOT OF THESE ARGUMENTS, WE

HAVE BEEN ARGUING OUR CASE SINCE

FEBRUARY OF 2012 WHEN THE HHS

MANDATE FIRST CAME OUT.

ALL DURING THIS TIME IT HAS BEEN

CLEAR THAT THE GOVERNMENT SIMPLY

IS NOT CHOOSING TO UNDERSTAND

WHAT WE MEAN BY COOPERATION IN

EVIL.

IF THE GOVERNMENT HAS A PLAN TO

EXPAND ACCESS TO ABORTION

INDUCING DRUGS, THEY HAVE TO DO

IT WITHOUT US.

YOU WANT TO DO THIS, DO NOT

INVOLVE US.

IT WENT VERY WELL.

YOU HAD MANY SUPPORTERS, HOW

CRITICAL IS THEIR SUPPORT?

IT IS CRITICALLY IMPORTANT.

THIS HHS MANDATE IS IN THE ARENA

OF PUBLIC EDUCATION AND MOLDING

PUBLIC OPINION.

WE HAD SENATOR TED CRUZ AND SIX

MEMBERS OF HOUSE OF

REPRESENTATIVES AND TWO DOZEN

NATIONAL PRO-LIFE LEADERS SOME

OF WHOM FLEW IN FROM OTHER PARTS

OF THE COUNTRY TO BE WITH US.

THIS SAYS FIRST OF ALL, WE ARE

WORKING ACROSSED THE BODY OF

CHRIST AND STAND FOR FAITH AND

SECONDLY SHOWS ALL OF THESE

GROUPS WORKING IN THEIR OWN WAY

ARE ULTIMATELY DEFENDING

LIBERTY.

IT IS IRONIC, WHEN THE ABORTION

WARS STARTED IT WAS THE OTHER

SIDE THAT SAID WE ARE PROMOTING

FREEDOM OF LIBERTY.

THEY ARE TRYING TO OPPOSE

ABORTION AND CONTRACEPTION BUT

WE ARE STANDING UP FOR FREEDOM

AND CONSCIENCE.

WHAT IS AT STAKE IF THE COURT

RULES AGAINST PRIESTS FOR LIFE?

WE WILL APPEAL.

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THE

RELIGIOUS GROUPS LIKE PRIESTS

FOR LIFE STILL AT THE DISTRICT

COURT LEVEL, THIS IS THE FIRST

TIME WE HAVE GOTTEN TO THE

APPELLATE LEVEL WHICH MAKES A

HISTORIC LANDMARK IN THE BATTLE

AGAINST THIS MANDATE.

SHOULD WE LOSE, WE WILL

CERTAINLY APPEAL TO THE SUPREME

COURT.

IN THE MEANTIME, WE HAVE MADE IT

CLEAR, WE WILL NOT OBEY THIS

MANDATE.

THIS IS THE POSITION ALL OF US

ARE IN, OUR ULTIMATE LOYALTY IS

JESUS CHRIST.

THAT IS WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A

CHRISTIAN.

WHEN THE GOVERNMENT TELLS US YOU

WILL DO THIS, WE WILL OBEY THE

GOVERNMENT WHEN THE LAWS ARE

JUST.

SCRIPTURE TELLS US GOVERNMENT

HAS A KEY ROLE.

WE WILL NOT WHEN THE LAWS ARE

UNJUST.

BOTH SCRIPTURE AND CHRISTIAN

HISTORY TELL A LONG STORY THAT

IS WHAT CHRISTIANS DO, THEY OBEY

GOD FIRST.

THAT'S RIGHT.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME, SIR.

THANK YOU FOR HAVING ME.

HOUSE REPUBLICANS HAVE VOTED

LOIS LERNER IN CONTEMPT.

ABOUTFYREFUSED TO

HER ROLE IN THE IRS TEA PARTY

PENALTY.

OVERALL, CONGRESS IS SPLIT ON

THE ISSUE WITH CRITICS SAYING IT

IS AN ATTEMPT BY THE GOP TO STIR

UP CONTROVERSY AGAINST

DEMOCRATS.

HOUSE SPEAK EE EER JOHN BOEHNER SAYS

IT IS TIME FOR AMERICA TO FIND

THE TRUTH.

THE GROUP HOLDING THE

SCHOOLGIRLS HAS STRUCK AGAIN.

DALE HURD HAS THE STORY.

REPORTER: THE MUSLIM TERROR

GROUP ATTACKED A MARKETPLACE.

ESTIMATES VARY FROM 100 TO

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE.

ALREADY MURDERED

NIGERIANS.F

STILL HOLDS 276

SCHOOLGIRLS KIDNAPPED THREE

WEEKS AGO.

THEIR FAMILIES HAVE LOST FAITH

IN THE NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT.

WE DON'T FEEL NIGERIA CAN GET

OUR CHILDREN BACK.

THE SEARCH AREA FOR THE

MISSING GIRLS, THE SAM BEEZY

FOREST IS REMOTE AND HUGE NU.H

THE YOUNG GIRLS ARE DISPERSED

IN SMALL GROUPS OR INDIVIDUALS.

BOKO HARAM HAS PROMISED TO

SELL THE GIRLS AS SEX SLAVES.

NIGERIA'S PRESIDENT GOOD LUCK

JOHNATHON SAID THE KIDNAPPING

COULD BE THE TURNING POINT IN

THE FIGHT AGAINST BOKO HARAM.

I BELIEVE IT WILL BE THE

BEGINNING OF THE ENDING OF

TERROR.

NEW THE KIDNAPPING SPARKED AX

AK SA AK SAGSS.

THE GOVERNMENT HAS BEEN DID I

NI INING RODIKTING

NIGERIAENS.

FOR MORE ON BOKO HARAM, WE

TURN TO OUR TERRORISM ANALYST

ERICK STAKELBECK WHO JOINS US

FROM WASHINGTON.

ERICK, MOST AMERICANS DON'T KNOW

ANYTHING ABOUT THAT

MUSLIM-TERRORIST GROUP BOKO

HARAM, WHAT IS THEIR GOAL?

THEIR GOAL IS TO TURN NIGERIA

INTO AN ISLAMIC STATE, NO ROOM

FOR CHRISTIANS.

BOKO HARAM BURNT DOWN CHURCHES

AND CHRISTIANS.

WESTERN EDUCATION IS FORBIDDEN,

THAT IS WHAT THEIR NAME MEANS.

NO WESTERN INFLUENCE IN NIGERIA.

THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST VICIOUS

TERRORIST GROUPS IN THE WORLD.

THEY MASSACRED 300 VILLAGERS IN

NORTHERN NIGERIA.

THEY ARE BASED IN NORTHERN

NIGERIA.

THEY WOULD LIKE TO EXPAND JIHAD

THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY.

WHETHER THEY CAN DO THAT IS

UNCLEAR.

WE HAVE SEEN OVER THE YEARS,

THIS IS A NEW TYPE OF EVIL

TARGETING LITTLE GIRLS.

WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT?

YEAH, WELL ACCORDING TO THEM,

LORIE THIS IS MANDATED IN ISLAM.

SLAVERY IS LEGAL AND KORAN SAYS

THIS KIND OF THINGS, SPOILS OF

WAR IS PERFECTLY LEGAL.

WHAT THEY ARE GOING TO DO IS

MAKE A MAJOR SPLASH.

THEY HAVE GARNERED INTERNATIONAL

HEADLINES WITH THIS MASS

KIDNAPPING.

I BELIEVE THEY WILL ATTEMPT TO

SELL THESE YOUNG GIRLS INTO

SLAVERY.

DOES THE WORLD STEP IN TO STOP

THAT?

CAN IT BE STOPPED?

THAT REMAINS TO BE SEEN.

NIGERIA DOESN'T SEEM TO BE DOING

ENOUGH TO BATTLE BACK AGAINST

THIS GROUP.

OTHER NATIONS ARE GETTING

INVOLVED, DO YOU THINK THAT WILL

BE HELPFUL?

IT IS GOING TO TAKE SOME TYPE

OF WESTERN INVOLVEMENT.

I KNOW THE U.S. IS SENDING

ADVISERS, LAW ENFORCEMENT,

MILITARY ADVISERS TO ASSIST

NIGERIA.

EUROPE WILL DO THE SAME THING.

NIGERIA RIGHT NOW DOESN'T SEEM

KEEN ON ACCEPTING THE WESTERN

AID.

A LOT OF TIMES, COUNTRIES IN

AFRICA, IN MIDDLE EAST ARE NOT

ABLE TO HANDLE THIS

INSURRECTIONS BY THEMSELVES.

BOKO HARAM HAS LOCAL AIMS RIGHT

NOW, LORRI IN NIGERIA.

THE LEADER OF BOKO HARAM HAS

PLEDGED ALLEGIANCE TO AL-QAEDA.

THERE ARE SOME INTERNATIONAL

JIHADI LINKS WITH THIS GROUP AS

WELL.

ERICK, THANK YOU FOR YOUR

INSIGHTS.

THANK YOU, LORRI CHECK OUT

ERICK'S BLOG, THE WATCHMEN AT

CBN.COM.

SEPARATIST LEADERS IN EASTERN

REGIONS MOVING FORWARD WITH A

PLANNED REFERENDUM ON AUTOTONMY.

SEPARATIST LEADERS SAY THE

REFERENDUM WILL DECIDE IF

EASTERN -- THEY HAVE LEFT OPEN

THE POSSIBILITY OF SEEKING

INDEPENDENCE OR ANNEXATION BY

RUSSIA.

COMING UP, SEVERE WEATHER

STRIKES AGAIN.

WHERE THE LATEST SYSTEM IS DOING

THE MOST DAMAGE.

GAS PRICES HAVE BEEN GOING UP

THE PAST FEW MONTHS.

THAT COULD SOON CHANGE.

ENERGY INFORMATION

ADMINISTRATION BY THE END OF THE

SUMMER PRICES COULD BE DOWN AS

MUCH AS $.30.

THE CURRENT NATIONAL AVERAGE IS

$3.67 BY SEPTEMBER, $3.46 A

GALLON.

THE ANNUAL CHANGE TO A SUMMER

GAS BLEND IS BEHIND THE EXPECTED

DROP.

VIOLENT STORMS EFFECTING 50

MILLION PEOPLE TONIGHT.

SOME OF THE STORMS ARE LEADING

TO DANGEROUS CONDITIONS

GENERATED HIGH WINDS, HEAVY RAIN

AND HAIL.

REPORTER: AFTER ONE OF THE

HARSHEST WINTERS ON RECORD,

SPRING IS BRINGING DANGEROUS

STORMS.

SEVERE WEATHER FROM MINNESOTA TO

TEXAS.

WORST OF THE STORMS CONTINUING

INTO TONIGHT.

IN SOME AREAS, MULTIPLE SEVERE

STORMS EXPECTED.

RESIDENTS SHOULD STAY ALERT EVEN

AFTER THE FIRST ROUTE PASSED.

WEDNESDAY STORMS SPAWN THROUGH

COLORADO AND NEARLY FIVE

TORNADOS.

OTHER PARTS SAW WIND GUSTS OF

GULF BALL SIZED HAIL.

HEAVY WINDS ARE BLAMED FOR

DERAILING THIS TRAIN.

I WAS SHOCKED IT WAS STRONG

ENOUGH TO BLOW THE CARS.

I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS STRONG

ENOUGH.

THIRTY TRAIN CARS WERE

KNOCKED OFF THE TRACKS BY 90

MILES AN HOUR WINDS.

LIGHTNING WINDS STRIKING EIGHT

PLANES AS THEY WERE TRYING TO

LAND.

A RECENT STRING OF DEVASTATING

TORNADOS ACROSS THE SOUTH.

FIRSTHAND BAMA GOT A

LOOK AT THE DEVASTATION IN

ARKANSAS.

FIFTEEN PEOPLE KILLED IN THAT

STATE ALONE.

WHEN SOMETHING HAPPENS IN A

WONDERFUL COMMUNITY LIKE THIS,

IT HAPPENS TO ALL OF US.

THE PRESIDENT VOWS TO HELP

REBUILD THEIR COMMUNITIES.

UP NEXT, HOW SCHOOLS ARE

KEEPING TABS ON THEIR KIDS AND

WHAT IT COULD MEAN FOR THEIR

PRIVACY.

ALMOST TUNATELY

MONITORHE GOVERNMENT

OUR PHONE CALLS, E-MAILS AND

WHAT WE BUY WITH OUR CREDIT

CARDS.

FEW PEOPLE KNOW OUR SCHOOLS ARE

KEEPING MORE AND MORE

INFORMATION ON THEIR STUDENTS.

ON ONE HAND IT MIGHT HELP

IMPROVE EDUCATION, DOES IT

VIOLATE THEIR PRIVACY.

HEATHER SELLS BRINGS US

TONIGHT'S FOCUS REPORT.

REPORTER: ONCE UPON A TIME

SCHOOLS USED FOLDERS AND FILES

TO TRACK STUDENT'S PROGRESS.

TODAY TEACHERS USE THEIR LAP

TOPS TO COLLECT INFORMATION

THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

NEW USING DATA IS A GREAT WAY

FOR ME TO DIFFERENTIATE AND

CATER MY INSTRUCTION TO

DIFFERENT KIDS' NEEDS.

THE PROBLEM WHAT HAPPENS TO

THAT DATA AFTER COLLECTED.

TODAY 95% OF SCHOOLS USE STUDENT

CLOUDS TO STORE INFORMATION.

POLICIES FOR PROTECTING THE DATA

ARE WEAK AND NON-TRANSPARENT.

ONLY 25% OF SCHOOLS TELL PARENTS

WHERE THEIR KIDS' INFORMATION IS

STORED.

MUCH OF THE DATA CAN BE SOLD OR

MARKETED.

PLUS MANY CONTRACTS ALLOW

VENDORS TO KEEP STUDENT

INFORMATION FOREVER.

WE FOUND IN OUR RESEARCH,

EVERY SCHOOL SYSTEM ACROSS THE

COUNTRY WAS COLLECTING DATA.

WHEN YOU ASK SCHOOL OFFICIALS,

THEY WERE OFTEN CONFUSED.

IN COLORADO, THEY LED THE

STATE TO COMPLETELY SEVER TIES

WITH STUDENT DATA COLLECTION.

CONCERNS OVER VERY PERSONAL

INFORMATION.

I THINK WE HAVE GENERALLY NOT

A LOT OF UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT

LEVEL OF DATA IS COLLECTED ON

OUR KIDS, WHAT PROTECTIONS ARE

OFFERED.

A YEAR AGO A MOM AND SON

BEGAN INVESTIGATING A PLAN TO

USE A SERVICE KNOWN AS INBLOOM.

THEY REALIZED THE AMOUNT OF DATA

INBLOOM INTENDED TO COLLECT.

THEY CAN TRACK OUR CHILDREN

THE WAY DOWN TO THE KEY

STROKE LEVEL.

THEIR DISTRICT DIDN'T PLAN TO

USE INBLOOM TO THAT DEGREE BUT

IT COULD EASILY HAPPEN.

THE DISTRICT TRACKED KIDS'

ANSWERS ON THE COMPUTER AND THE

WAY THEY THOUGHT TO ARRIVE ON

THE ANSWERS AND EIGHT OTHER

STATES PLAN TO USE INBLOOM.

THE EVEN BIGGER PICTURE, IT IS

ONE SERVICE IN A HUGE EIGHT

BILLION DOLLAR EDUCATION

TECHNOLOGY MARKET AND HINGES ON

DATA POINTS ON KIDS.

CHECK OUT THIS PROMISE AT A

WHITE HOUSE CONFERENCE ON

EDUCATION.

YOU LEARN MATH BEST IN THE

MORNING.

YOU LEARN SCIENCE BEST IN

42-MINUTE BITE SIZE PIECES.

WAY TO ACCESS

INFORMATION FROM DIFFERENT

SOURCES.

DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION OFFERS

SPECIAL FUNDING TO TRACK STUDENT

PRE-SCHOOL TO OM

POST-COLLEGE.

LOTS OF GOOD REASONS FOR SIGNING

UP.

HE ADMITS HIS STATE DIDN'T THINK

ENOUGH ABOUT PRIVACY WHEN

COMMITTING TO INBLOOM.

COLORADO AND EIGHT OTHER STATES

DECIDED TO END THEIR CONTRACTS

WITH INBLOOM.

IN DOING SO IT ACKNOWLEDGED

BUILDING PUBLIC SUPPORT WOULD

REQUIRE MORE TIME AND RESOURCES

THAN ANYONE COULD HAVE

ANTICIPATED.

THE CHALLENGE OF HOW BEST TO

STORE AND PROTECT STUDENT DATA

IS FAR FROM OVER.

THE STATES WE ARE IN TOUCH

WITH SAY WE NEED TO BE VERY

CAREFUL, MUCH MORE TRANSPARENT.

ONE ISSUE, FEDERAL STUDENT

PRIVACY LAW KNOWN AS FERPA.

THESE RECENT REGULATIONS

ALLOW SCHOOLS TO COLLECT MORE

INFORMATION AND DISCLOSE

DIFFERENT INFORMATION.

THE SCOPE OF INFORMATION IS

MUCH BROADER.

WE ARE TALKING NOT JUST GPA'S

AND TEST SCORES BUT SOCIAL

SECURITY NUMBERS, TEEN

PREGNANCY, SOCIOECONOMIC

STATUS FOR STRICTLAND, FLYNN

AND OTHER PRIVACY MINDED PARENTS

ACROSS THE COUNTRY, IT IS TIME

TO HIT PAUSE ON THIS TECHNOLOGY

WAVE BEFORE IT GOES TOO FAR.

NEW THE TECHNOLOGY HAS GOTTEN

AHEAD OF THE LEADERSHIP AND TIME

EVERYBODY SLOW DOWN AND

UNDERSTAND WHAT WE ARE GETTING

OURSELVES INTO.

GOING FORWARD, TOUGH

QUESTIONS REMAIN, HOW CAN

PARENTS ACCESS THIS INFORMATION

ON THEIR CHILDREN?

CAN THEY OPT OUT?

HOW LONG IS DATA KEPT?

WHO DECIDES WHAT WILL BE

DELETED?

ONCE YOU LET THE INFORMATION

OUT, YOU CAN NEVER GET IT BACK.

THE GOAL FOR PARENTS IS TO

MINIMIZE THE AMOUNT OF DATA

COLLECTED ON OUR CHILDREN AND

WHATEVER IS COLLECTED, PROTECT

IT WITH MAXIMUM PROTECTIONS.

FOR THESE MOMS AND MANY OTHER

TECH SAVVY PARENTS, TECHNOLOGY

IS A DOUBLE EDGED SORT IT CAN

HELP, THEY WORRY HOWEVER,

PERSONAL PIECES OF INFORMATION

COLLECTED ON THEIR KIDS COULD

SOME DAY BE USED AGAINST THEM.

REPORTING IN DENVER, HEATHER

SELLS, CBN NEWS.

UP NEXT, HOW ONE BEAUTY QUEEN
