    First Topic - Brutal beheading: Afghan terror advances ahead of President Obama's pullout plan

    Afghans are warning of dire consequences for the country's tiny Christian population should American forces leave Afghanistan, as President Barack Obama announced last week. "If U.S. troops are not in Afghanistan the Taliban will come to power," said Obaid S. Christ, an Afghan Christian exiled to India. "We will have the same situation we had in the 1990s when the Russians left Afghanistan, when we had civil war and millions killed." Mindy Belz has been reporting on Afghanistan for WORLD Magazine and is here to discuss Christians in Afghanistan.

    Second Topic - The Fight is On: Planned Parenthood Files Lawsuit to Open Abortion Clinic

    Planned Parenthood of Mid-and South Michigan has filed a law suit in Oakland County, MI to challenge the deed restriction that has thus far thwarted the abortion provider's plans to open a 17,000 square-foot clinic in Auburn Hills, MI.  When the owners of an adjacent hotel discovered that the real purchaser of the property was Planned Parenthood and that the building would become an abortion clinic-they sought to enforce the deed restriction-a restriction that was originally designed to protect their own property investment.  Monica Miller is here to fill us in on the details.

    Third Topic  -"Leonie"

    In late 1800s France, Leonie Martin is a young bourgeoisie woman with a difficult nature who causes great emotional stress and suffering for her mother Zelie. Leonie wreaks havoc with the religious superiors in the monasteries she tries in vain to enter. Her extreme emotional outbursts and stubborn nature begin to ease when she meets and befriends a caring younger nun Sister Jeanne Marguerite. It's the story of the sister of St. Therese and is now a feature film. Executive Director Barb Middleton is here to discuss it.
