SECOND CHANCE IN LIFE, THANKS TO

DISCOVERY BY A DOCTOR IN NORTH

CAROLINA, MORE THAN 80 WOMEN

THAT TOOK AN ABORTION PILL --

THEY REALIZED THEY WANTED TO

KEEP THEIR UNBORN BABIES AFTER

ALLS.

HEATHER SELLS BRINGS US THIS

STORY.

REPORTER: LITTLE GABRIELLE

ALIVE AND WELL THANKS TO HIS

MOTHER'S INSTANTS.

SHE WAS STUDYING NURSING WHEN

SHE GOT THE NEWS SHE WAS

PREGNANT.

RELUCTANTLY THEY DECIDED TO

ABORT HER BABY.

SHE WAS UNSETTLED WHEN SHE CAME

TO THE CLINIC, IMMEDIATELY AFTER

SHE SWALLOWED THE PILL SHE

REGRETTED WHAT SHE HAD DONE.

I RAN OUT TRYING TO THROW UP

NOTHING WOULD COME OUT.

REPORTER: ON A MISSION TO

SAVE HER BABY, SHE CALLED

SEVERAL OB STA TRIGSES AND WENT

TO A LOCAL EMERGENCY.

DOCTORS TOLD HER THERE WAS NO

WAY OUT AND TAKE THE SECOND

ABORTION PILL WITHIN 24 HOURS.

HER MOM DISCOVERED ABORTION

REVERSAL HOTLINE.

LOCAL DOCTOR FOUND THE BABY'S

HEART BEAT AND BREAK IN THE

PLACENTA.

INSTEAD OF GOING TOWARDS IT,

HE HAD GONE AWAY FROM IT AND

CURLED UP IN A BALL.

REPORTER: DOCTOR IMMEDIATELY

BEGAN THE REVERSAL PROCESS

FLOODING THE BODY WITH

PROGESTERONE AND BLOCKS DEADLY

EFFECTS OF RU-486.

THESE ARE HORMONES THE

WOMAN'S BODY HAS AND WE ARE

SUPPLEMENTING THAT.

CREATED THE PROTOCOL WHEN A

PATIENT CAME TO HIM AFTER THE

FIRST DOSEAGE OF RU-486.

SHE SAID I WILL DO ANYTHING

SOMETHING SHE DIDN'T WANT TO DO.

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THEY TEACH

YOU IN MEDICAL SCHOOL.

THEY DON'T GIVE YOU AN ANTIDOTE

TO ABORTIONS.

REPORTER: THERE IS A TWO-DAY

GAP BETWEEN FIRST AND SECOND

ABORTION PILLS.

REVERSAL MUST BEGIN WITHIN THREE

DAYS OF FIRST PILL AND BEFORE

TAKING THE SECOND.

EXPECTING.

NOT EVERYONE SUCCEEDS.

ABOUT 40% HAVE FAILED IN THEIR

HOPE OF REVERSING THEIR

ABORTION.

DR. LOUIS LIPSCOMB TRIED FOUR

TIMES AND IT CAN BE TENSE.

IT IS NERVE RACKING.

REPORTER: QUESTION OF BIRTH

DEFECTS IS A TOUGH ONE, SO FAR

ALL THE MOMS THAT HAVE GONE

THROUGHOUT PROCESS HAVE

DELIVERED HEALTHY CHILDREN.

IN THE MEANTIME THEY EXPECT

PLANNED PARENTHOOD TO PUSH BACK

AGAINST THE LIFE SAVING

TECHNIQUE.

THEY HAVE A POWERFUL MACHINE

THAT WILL MAKE FUN OF THIS

ATTACK IT SAYING IT IS JUNK

SCIENCE JUNK MEDICINE.

REPORTER: NATIONAL DIRECTOR

OF PRIESTS FOR LIFE IS WORKING

WITH DR. HARRISON BY

DISTRIBUTING REVERSAL KITS TO

HEALTH CARE WORKERS AND PRO-LIFE

ADVOCATES.

REVERSAL TECHNIQUE GIVES US

HOPE, FIRST OF ALL WE CAN SAY IT

IS NOT TOO LATE.

TO HELP THEM TURN THE SHIP

AROUND AND LOVE THEM REGARDLESS

OF WHAT THEY DID YESTERDAY AND

HELP THEM TO LEARN TO LOVE THEIR

BABY IS VERY EXCITING.

REPORTER: TODAY LITTLE

GABRIELLE AND MOM ARE THRIVING

THE "WASHINGTON TIMES" SAYING IT

CHOICE OR SUBSCRIBE -- OR NOT

SUBSCRIBE TO RELIGIOUS BELIEFS

AT ALL.

> UP NEXT, ISLAMIC STATE'S

PLAN TO TAKE THE WEST.

FIND OUT WHY ISIS IS DETERMINED

TO CONQUER ROME AND HOW THEY

PLAN TO DO IT.

ONE OF THE MAJOR GOALS OF ISIS

TO USHER IN THE NEW WORLD

CONQUERING THE CITY OF ROME.

ISIS HAS A STRATEGY TO DO IT.

DALE HURD BRINGS THIS ASTONISH

ASTONISHING REPORT FROM ROME.

DALE: ISLAMIC STATE HAS A

PLAN TO CONQUER ROME.

ISIS BELIEVES THE CONQUEST IS

NECESSARY TO FULFILL WHAT ISLAM

TEACHES WAS THE PROPHECY OF

MOHAMMAD AND PREPARE THE RETURN

OF THE MUSLIM MESSIAH, THE

MAHDI.

ISIS THINKS ROME IS IN ITS

PRIMARY GOALS, BY 2025, IT HOPES

TO BRING ABOUT ARMAGEDDON, FINAL

STRUGGLE BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL

OR MUSLIMS AND NON-MUSLIMS.

ONE OF THE CHIEF STEPPINGSTONES

TO THAT ARMAGEDDON BATTLE IS THE

CONQUEST OF ROME THEY THINK THEY

ARE GOING TO DO WITHIN THE NEXT

FIVE YEARS, BY 2020.

DALE: TWO GREAT CITIES WOULD

BE CONQUERED, CON STEAD AND OEBL

AND ROME.

CON STEAD AND OPEN L IS ISTANBUL

ISTANBUL.

ISRAEL WILL FOLLOW SHORTLY

AFTER.

THEY BELIEVE THEY ARE GOING TO

CONQUER SAUDI ARABIA AND IRAN.

DALE: CONSIDER PHASE 1 TO

TAKE ROME MAYBE UNDERWAY,

FLOODING EUROPE WITH ISIS

FIGHTERS UNDER THE COVERAGE OF

REFUGEE CRISIS.

THEY ARE NOT DOING IT BY

CONVENTIONAL ARMIES AND

OVERWHELMING THESE LANDS WITH

SYMPATHIZERS AND INFLUX OF

OTHERS FROM OUTSIDE.

DALE: PART OF ITS PLAN IN

PUBLICATION BLACK FLAGS FROM

ROME.

IT WILL USE SLEEPER CELLS AND

EXPECTS TO GET HELP FROM MUSLIMS

IN EUROPEAN ARMIES AND

NON-MUSLIM SYMPATHIZERS AND FIRE

MISSILES INTO ITALY.

THIS IS A THREAT HARD TO BE

CONCERNED ABOUT.

ITALIAN AND FOREIGN EXPERT.

THE CONCERN SHOULD BE TO THE

REALITY TO THE THREAT.

ISLAMIC STATE DOESN'T POSE THAT

THREAT TODAY.

DALE: HE SAYS EUROPE FACES

MORE PRESSING PROBLEMS BECAUSE

OF ISIS.

MUCH LARGER THREAT WE ARE

CONCERNED WITH IN EUROPE IS WITH

THE LONE WOLF TERRORISTS WHO

PLOTS A TERROR OUTRAGE AGAINST

THE SCHOOL, SUPERMARKET,

SHOPPING MALL, AIRPORT.

DALE: IT IS HARD TO SEE HOW

ISIS COULD CONQUER A CITY OF

THREE MILLION AND NATION OF 60

MILLION PEOPLE.

IT IS NOT HARD TO SEE ISIS

ATTEMPTING IT.

CONQUEST OF ROAM ROME HAS BEEN

SINCE THE BEGINNING.

THEY THINK THE CONQUEST OF

ROME IS THE DEFEAT OF

CHRISTIANITY.

DALE: IT WILL CULMINATE IN A

BATTLE NEAR DA BEAK, SYRIA,

THEIR VERSION OF ARMAGEDDON.

THEY THINK ONCE THIS BATTLE

TAKES PLACE AT DA BEAK BY TEN

YEARS, 2025, MUSLIMS WITH BATTLE

NON MUSLIMS IN THIS TOWN IN

NORTHERN SYRIA AND JESUS, MUSLIM

PROPHET AND MAHDI WILL RETURN TO

THE EARTH AND TOGETHER CONQUER

AND ISLAMIZE THE WORLD.

DALE: ISIS WILL THROW

HOMOSEXUALS FROM THE TOP OF THE

LEANING TOWER OF PISA.

CHIEF TARGET IS VATICAN CITY IN

ROME AND BEHEADING OF THE POPE

IN ST. PETER'S SQUARE BROADCAST

IN LIVE STREAM TO AN

INTERNATIONAL AUDIENCE.

THERE WAS A POLISH CONVERT

WHO JOINED THE ISLAMIC STATE, HE

SAID ONCE WE TAKE OVER ROME,

WE'LL CARRY OUT MASS BEHEADINGS

IN ST. PETER'S SQUARE.

THIS IS THE PLAN TO CONVERT ST.

PETER'S SQUARE INTO A HUGE SITE

OF EXECUTIONS, CHIEF AMONG THEM

THE POPE TO FRIGHTEN THE REST OF

THE WORLD TO SUBMIT INTO THEIR

RULE.

DALE: PLAN NOW THAT HAS

LITTLE CHANCE OF SUCCESS.

AUTHOR AND EXPERT WILLIAM SAID

ISIS HAS TAKEN A LONGER TERM

VIEW OF CONQUEST OF ROME AND

RETURN OF MAHDI AND WILLING TO

WAIT IN ORDER TO BUILD UP ITS

FORCES.

ISIS IS NEXT DOOR TO ITALY IN

NORTH AFRICA.

ISLAMIC STATE FIGHTERS ARE

ALMOST CERTAINLY INSIDE THE

COUNTRY, SOME POSING AS REFUGEES

WAITING FOR THE DAY WHEN THE

BATTLE FOR ROME BEGINS.

DALE HURD, CBN NEWS, ROME.

> UP NEXT, HE IS THE TWO-TIME

ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE AND UP FOR

LATEST ROLE IN THE FILM

"CONCUSSION."

WILL SMITH SAYS IT IS TIME TO

ANSWER TO A HIGHER CALLING.

WE SIT DOWN WITH TODAY'S ACTOR

FOR STUDIO FIVE.

@ú@ú

ACTOR WILL SMITH IS UP FOR

HIS ROLE IN A DAVID AND GOLIATH

BATTLE IN THE FILM "CONCUSSION."

THIS FOLLOWS TWO OSCAR NOMINEES

FOR "ALI AND PURSUIT OF

HAPPINESS."

HE IS SITTING DOWN WITH US BUT

FIRST LET'S LOOK AT HIS

PORTRAYAL.

WHAT DO THEY WANT?

NFL WANTS YOU TO SAY YOU MADE

IT ALL UP.

I MADE IT UP?

THEY ARE ACCUSING YOU OF

FRAUD IF YOU RETRACT, YOU'LL BE

FINED THIS ALL GOES AWAY.

WHY ARE THEY DOING THIS?

THEY ARE TERRIFIED OF YOU.

GOING TO WAR WITH A

CORPORATION THAT HAS 20 MILLION

PEOPLE ON A WEEKLY BASIS CRAVING

THEIR PRODUCT.

SAME WAY THEY CRAVE FOOD.

NFL OWNS A DAY OF THE WEEK,

SAME DAY THE CHURCH USED TO OWN,

NOW IT IS THEIRS.

THEY ARE BIG.

FIRST QUESTION, WHO IS DR.

AMOLU.

HE IS A REALLY INTERESTING

PARADOXICAL CREATURE, BORN AND

RAISED IN NIGERINIGERIA, LOVED

AMERICA.

HE HAS EIGHT DEGREES.

HE IS A MAN OF SCIENCE, FIRMLY,

ALSO ONE OF THE MOST SPIRITUALLY

RELIGIOUSLY-BASED PEOPLE I HAVE

EVER MET IN MY LIFE.

EVERYTHING IN HIS LIFE IS ABOUT

GOD YET HE IS A SCIENTISTS.

I KNOW.

IT WAS SUCH A REALLY, IT WAS

BEAUTIFUL TO SPEND TIME WITH HIM

AND WATCH HOW HE BLENDED THOSE

TWO CONCEPTS IN HIS LIFE.

YOU WERE A FOOTBALL DAD,

OLDEST SON PLAYED FOOTBALL.

THERE IS A LINE IN THE FILM THAT

SAYS THE NFL OWNS A DAY OF THE

WEEK THE CHURCH USED TO OWN.

WERE THERE ANY RESERVATIONS

TAKING ON THE NFL?

YEAH, IT WAS -- YOU KNOW, IT

WAS LESS ABOUT TAKING ON THE

NFL.

I DIDN'T SEE THIS FILM AS TAKING

ON THE NFL.

I SAW HOW SOMEONE COULD SEE IT

THAT WAY, UM, BUT TO ME, IT WAS

MUCH MORE ABOUT DELIVERING THE

TRUTH.

MUCH MORE ABOUT TELLING DR.

AMOLU'S STORY.

WHEN HE TOLD ME HIS STORY AND

HIS LOVE FOR AMERICA AND

AMERICAN IDEALS AND HOW HE WAS

SHOCKED AND DISILLUSIONED BY

PEOPLE NOT WANTING TO KNOW.

HE COULDN'T SEE HOW NOT KNOWING

WAS BETTER THAN KNOWING.

HE WAS CONFLICTED IN THAT WAY.

I COULD RELATE TO THAT, YOU

KNOW, BEING A HUGE FOOTBALL FAN.

I REALLY WASN'T EXCITED TO BE

THE GUY THAT BROUGHT THIS

INFORMATION, YOU KNOW, SIN MAT

CLI, AT LEAST TO THE FOREFRONT.

LAST QUESTION, WHAT IS NEXT?

I THINK I READ YOU SAID, YOU

LOOK IN THE REFLECTION, YOU

DON'T SEE THE REFLECTION YOUR

GRANDMOTHER SAW WHAT YOU CAN

CONTRIBUTE TO THE WORLD.

MANY WOULD BE SURPRISED.

TWO TIME NOMINEE, NOW NOMINATED

FOR GLOBAL GLOBE.

AFTER SPENDING TIME WITH DR.

AMOLU.

I SPENT TIME WITH MOHAMMED ALI

AND NELSON MEN MANDELLA, I HAVE

BEEN BLESSED TO PLAY CHARACTERS

LIKE THIS, IT FEELS GOOD TO WEAR

THAT.

IT FEELS GOOD TO ME WHEN I WEAR

THE LIFE OF A PERSON COMMITTED

TO OTHERS.

SO THAT GOOD FEELING IS A SIGNAL

TO ME THERE IS A DEEPER CALLING

FOR ME AND UM, IN THE WILL

BLUEPRINT THAT HEAVEN CREATED, I

THINK THERE IS MORE THEN JUST

BEING AN ACTOR.

YOU KNOW, I THINK THERE IS A

HIGHER CONTRIBUTION THAT I CAN

AND I WILL MAKE.

POLITICS?

POTENTIALLY, POTENTIALLY,

PEOPLE KEEP TALKING CRAZY.

MIGHT HAVE TO BE POLITICS.

WILL SMITH FOR PRESIDENT.

[LAUGHTER].

WE'LL KEEP

WATCHING

FOR T

HE

BLUEPRINT.

FILM IS IN THEATRES.

STAY WITH US, MORE TO COME RIGHT

HERE.

IT IS TIME FOR YOUR THURSDAY

THANKFUL AND ON THIS FINAL DAY

OF THE YEAR, MAKE THIS YOUR

PRAYER, LORD, THANK YOU FOR NOT

HOLDING A YEAR OF PAST MISTAKES

AGAINST ME.

NOW LET ME NOT HOLD MY PAST

AGAINST MYSELF.

WITH THAT SAY AMEN AND WALK

BOLDLY INTO THE YEAR AHEAD.

WHEN YOU FALL, GET UP, PRAY THAT

PRAYER AGAIN, EVERY BREATH IS A

NEW OPPORTUNITY TO DO BETTER.

FAIR W

ELL

TO

2015,

2016

WILL BE

SO MUCH BIGGER AND

BETTER.

THAT IS GOING TO DO

IT

FOR THIS

EDITION OF

CBN

"NEWSWATCH."

YOU CAN FIND

OUT MORE

ON

CBNNEWS.COM.

WE WOULD

LOVE TO

HEAR

WHAT YOU

THINK

ABOUT THE STORIES YOU HAVE

SEEN HERE, THANKS FOR WATCHING.
