Lila Rose talks to Glenn about the fight for life

Live Action is one of the largest organizations in the country fighting for the right of life and ending abortion. The organization is a youth led movement, founded by Lila Rose at the age of 15. Lila is well-known for her bravery in exposing corruption and illegal activity at Planned Parenthood. Lila Rose, now 24 and a recent UCLA grad, joined Glenn on radio this morning.

Lila explained that at UCLA it was amazing to see the bias against human life, and how most of it came from the faculty and administration, not the students.

"The reality is young people, college students, when you give them the truth, that sets them free. They get excited to actually see the reality of the life in the room and that's the last 40 years of Roe vs Wade that our country has changed, so many opinions have changed about the child in the womb. And then also, to recognize what abortion really is and what it does," Lila explained. "It's amazing how many people's minds are changing and have changed and definitely will continue to change."

"I've said since I can remember — long before we had the technology — if people could see the baby in the womb, if you had a window and you could see in, no one would say anything other than it's a baby," Glenn responded.

And now that there is technology like that. There is a "window into the womb".

"I mean, even in the first trimester it's amazing at just 10 weeks you can see the child with his little arms, legs, newly forming face," Lila said. "It's beautiful."

"Do you have any concrete data that shows that people in their 20s and below are actually more pro life than the older generations?" Glenn asked.

"Yes, absolutely," Lila answered. "The latest Gallup poll indicates that more people identify in that demographic as pro life than pro choice. And not just that demographic but others as well. It's huge and it's exciting because that's were you told most intensely pro life graphics, and even Proceed Life's Facebook, we're at over 430,000 people."

What's even more impressive about the numbers Lila shared, is that of those 430k people, half are teens ages 13 to 17. That's bigger than Planned Parenthood's social media presence — an organization with a billion dollar budget.

For those that aren't familiar with Live Action, they're an organization that focuses on exposing the abortion industry through investigative journalism, undercover video, and visual media.

Lila's investigative journalism has resulted in her picture being posted in every Planned Parenthood office in the country.

"My first undercover investigation as an 18‑year‑old at UCLA was in a Planned Parenthood posing as an underage girl and the clinic told me that even though I had an older boyfriend, they would give me a secret abortion and wouldn't tell anyone," Lila said. "And that's just one clinic. We ended up going to dozens of clinics and we've documented this for years now. And this is just one aspect because when you allow the killing of the unborn child, these these businesses, these clinics are making a killing, making money off of the suffering of women. So they are not going to physical the regulations and the laws that may be in place. They are just going to do more abusive activity to fulfill their quotas, their abortion quotas, to make more money, to push their ideology."

Despite the youth becoming more and more pro-life, the culture of death seems to be increasing all around the world. Glenn mentioned the rise of euthanasia, like the blind twins in Belgium that didn't want to be blind and death, so they were euthanize. He also discussed the president's abortion stance and his view on healthcare and the medical treatment we provide our elderly.

"We're entering a time I don't think we've seen since the 1930s with eugenics.  Would you agree with that?" Glenn asked.

"You're absolutely right," Lila answered. "I mean, what has happened is the population‑controllers, and I know you've talked a lot about this, Glenn, to expose it.  They are architects of the culture of death and they created a system where human life is not valued, from the child in the womb to the elderly person who can't contribute anything to society supposedly as they see it, certain ethnic groups, certain people with disabilities, they are not valued and so they are dispensable, we can just get rid of them.  And that's what's happened in our country and that's exactly what is going to ‑‑ that's ‑‑ that leads to the breakdown of a civilization."

"If you're not protecting the weakest members of society, your society won't stand," Lila added. "And that's what we're doing. We're killing our children. We're killing our future. Over a fourth of our generation has been killed by abortion. And that's just America.  It's happening all over the world."

One of the biggest battles Lila and Live Actio n face is simply getting the truth out. Organization like Planned Parenthood and leaders of the progressive movement do everything they can to erase the truth about abortion, Margaret Sanger and eugenics. And the pressure on Live Action is getting more intense.

"I mean, look at who's in office, who was just reelected to a second term," Lila said. "The most pro abortion president in U.S. history, who is up to the biggest chain abortion funding every year and it's up to half a billion dollars now of taxpayer money, our money, goes to the killing of the unborn child."

Despite the pressure, many continue to join the fight for life. And this Friday is the March for Life in Washington, D.C.

"They've had hundreds of thousands of people attend in the past," Lila said, "and this is the 40th anniversary of Roe — of the horrible Supreme Court decision that took away the fundamental human rights for the child in the womb and so we're expecting record numbers this year."

"This is really a country‑altering decision for us," Glenn told listeners. "Go to liveaction.org and find out more information on that and how you can participate."

The Omicron variant: Should we ACTUALLY panic?

As the new Omicron variant of the coronavirus approaches, it seems like those in power want everyone to be terrified, Glenn Beck argued on the radio program Monday.

The chair of the World Medical Association's Council, Frank Ulrich Montgomery, is already comparing the variant to Ebola and New York Gov. Kathy Hochul (D) has declared a state of emergency, despite the doctor who announced its discovery describing the new variant's symptoms as "unusual, but mild." So, should we really be worried or not?

In this clip, Glenn and producer Stu Burguiere reviewed what we know about the Omicron variant so far and gave a few reasons why we should wait for more information before succumbing to panic.

Faced with an oppressive government that literally burned people at the stake for printing Bibles, America's original freedom fighters risked it all for the same rights our government is starting to trample now. That's not the Pilgrim story our woke schools and corporate media will tell you. It's the truth, and it sounds a lot more like today's heroes in Afghanistan than the 1619 Project's twisted portrait of America.

This Thanksgiving season, Glenn Beck and WallBuilders president Tim Barton tell the full story of who the Pilgrims really were and what we must learn from them, complete with a sneak peek at the largest privately owned collection of Pilgrim artifacts.

Saule Omarova, President Joe Biden's nominee for comptroller of the currency, admitted she wants to fight climate change by bankrupting coal, oil, and gas companies. Alarmingly, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, John Kerry, seemed to agree with Omarova when he said "by 2030 in the United States, we won't have coal" at the COP26 conference in Glasgow, Scotland, earlier this month. But that could end in massive electrical blackouts and brownouts across the nation, BlazeTV host Glenn Beck warned.

Carol Roth, author of "The War On Small Business," joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain what experts say you can do now to prepare your family for potential coming power outages.

"It's interesting. Usually when I go out and talk to experts in areas that are not 100% core to my area of expertise and I say, 'I would like to give you credit.' Usually I get, 'OK, here's how you credit me.' But everyone is like, 'No, no. Let me tell you what happened, just don't use my name.' And this is across the country," Roth said. "This isn't just a California issue, which obviously [California] is leading the nation. But even experts out of Texas, people who are monitoring the electric grid are incredibly concerned about brownouts or blackouts now, already. So forget about 2030."

"You want to have a backup source of power," she continued. "Either a propane, diesel, or combo generator is something that you're going to want to have. Because in a state, for example like Texas, I'm told that once the state loses power, it will take a minimum of two weeks to restore plants back to operations and customers able to use grid power again. So, this isn't something that we've got nine years or whatever to be thinking about. We should be planning and preparing now."

This year marks the four hundredth anniversary of the first Thanksgiving celebrated by the Pilgrims and their Wampanoag allies in 1621. Tragically, nearly half of the Pilgrims had died by famine and disease during their first year. However, they had been met by native Americans such as Samoset and Squanto who miraculously spoke English and taught the Pilgrims how to survive in the New World. That fall the Pilgrims, despite all the hardships, found much to praise God for and they were joined by Chief Massasoit and his ninety braves came who feasted and celebrated for three days with the fifty or so surviving Pilgrims.

It is often forgotten, however, that after the first Thanksgiving everything was not smooth sailing for the Pilgrims. Indeed, shortly thereafter they endured a time of crop failure and extreme difficulties including starvation and general lack. But why did this happen? Well, at that time the Pilgrims operated under what is called the "common storehouse" system. In its essence it was basically socialism. People were assigned jobs and the fruits of their labor would be redistributed throughout the people not based on how much work you did but how much you supposedly needed.

The problem with this mode of economics is that it only fails every time. Even the Pilgrims, who were a small group with relatively homogeneous beliefs were unable to successfully operate under a socialistic system without starvation and death being only moments away. Governor William Bradford explained that under the common storehouse the people began to "allege weakness and inability" because no matter how much or how little work someone did they still were given the same amount of food. Unsurprisingly this, "was found to breed much confusion and discontent."[1]

The Pilgrims, however, were not the type of people to keep doing what does not work. And so, "they began to think how they might raise as much corn as they could, and obtain a better crop than they had done, that they might not still thus languish in misery."[2] And, "after much debate of things" the Pilgrims under the direction of William Bradford, decided that each family ought to "trust to themselves" and keep what they produced instead of putting it into a common storehouse.[3] In essence, the Pilgrims decided to abandon the socialism which had led them to starvation and instead adopt the tenants of the free market.

And what was the result of this change? Well, according to Bradford, this change of course, "had very good success; for it made all hands very industrious, so as much more corn was planted than otherwise would have been."[4] Eventually, the Pilgrims became a fiscally successful colony, paid off their enormous debt, and founded some of the earliest trading posts with the surrounding Indian tribes including the Aptucxet, Metteneque, and Cushnoc locations. In short, it represented one of the most significant economic revolutions which determined the early characteristics of the American nation.

The Pilgrims, of course, did not simply invent these ideas out of thin air but they instead grew out of the intimate familiarity the Pilgrims had with the Bible. The Scriptures provide clear principles for establishing a successful economic system which the Pilgrims looked to. For example, Proverbs 12:11 says, "He that tills his land shall be satisfied with bread." So the Pilgrims purchased land from the Indians and designated lots for every family to individually grow food for themselves. After all, 1 Timothy 5:8 declares, "If anyone does not provide for his relatives, and especially for members of his household, he has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever."

We often think that the battle against Socialism is a new fight sprouting out of the writings of Karl Marx which are so blindly and foolishly followed today by those deceived by leftist irrationality. However, America's fight against the evil of socialism goes back even to our very founding during the colonial period. Thankfully, our forefathers decided to reject the tenants of socialism and instead build their new colony upon the ideology of freedom, liberty, hard work, and individual responsibility.

So, this Thanksgiving, let's thank the Pilgrims for defeating socialism and let us look to their example today in our ongoing struggle for freedom.
