The left "celebrates" 40 years of Roe vs. Wade

The 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade is this week and groups on both sides of the issue have been doing different things to bring attention to the abortion debate. Earlier this week, Glenn spoke to pro-life activist Lila Rose about the great work she is doing at Live Action and the March for Life. Today, Glenn highlighted a more disturbing side of the anniversary.

Abortion advocates seem to be "celebrating" the anniversary in rather creepy ways…Here's one example:

So…apparently abortion is a middle aged male?

Irony alert.

Aren't pro-life conservatives constantly being accused of a "war on women" and abortion is a women's rights issue? Conservative men are constantly maligned for even taking a stance on an issue that couldn't possibly understand? So who better to be the representative figure of abortion…than a creepy man who appears to be hitting on all women?

"It is so disturbing," Glenn said after hearing the ad. "He is talking about Roe versus Wade and the way they're ‑‑ I mean, they've made it a sexual commercial."

Not only have that sexualized the sensitive issue — remember, the debate is over whether or not abortion is murder — they've turned it into a joke. This video was designed to make you laugh.

"I particularly enjoyed the use of the word "baby" so many times," Stu pointed out. "'Hey, baby, we killed you.'"

"I just, I find it amazing that they thought that was appropriate to take a guy and make him sound like, "Yeah, baby.  We're going to get some lovin' now," when this is the argument against it is that you don't kill children for birth control.  And that's what ‑‑ this whole thing just felt that way," Glenn said. 

But that's just one of the less disturbing pieces of media to come out of the activists on the left side of the issue.

A new documentary is being released on the four doctors left in the United States still perform late [3rd] term abortions.

"Who in their right mind would do that?" Glenn asked.

"I'm surprised they are doing it," Stu answered. "They are doing it like, we're the fantastic four.  Like, they're like profiling them like they're heroes essentially of course."

One would think that doctors involved in any documentary focused on such a controversial issue would be very clinically based and well spoken — not the case. Stu played audio from an NPR show called Shades of Grey that displayed the complete disconnect from reality.

If these individuals in this audio and the documentary are in favor of making late term abortions legal, it seems like they would make sure the issue was discussed in a light where is leaves you asking questions or less polarized.That's not really what's going on.

"I don't think you'll feel that way when you hear these clips," Pat commented.

Remember, this is from NPR and brought to you by your tax dollars:

VOICE:  Of course there is another aspect to this and, umm, you know, I always do kind of in a way have a moment's thought of thinking of the end of this fetus and that I think of this as a life necessarily but it's a loss. 

As Glenn, Pat and Stu point out, what exactly is one losing if not a life? Tissue? Cysts? Cells? Do they not make life?

And on that note, they don't "necessarily" think of it as a human life…okay…would this doctor liked to be described as not "necessarily" a murderer? In order to perform a procedure like this, there should probably be a very definitive line, right? If your doctor tells you that you don't "necessarily" have cancer, you're probably going to want to confirm that before taking any actions moving forward.

"What's it going to grow into?" Pat asked rhetorically. "It's not ‑‑ you don't think of it as life necessarily.  What is it?"

In a different clip a nurse discusses her experience with partial birth abortion:

NURSE:  We have a sonogram in the room and one person is in charge of manning the sonogram.  So the transducer is on the mom's belly.  So you can see calcified structures.  So skull, ribcage, arms and legs and that kind of thing. 

 

Interviewer:  Doctors learn to look at very gruesome things.  It is the nature particularly of being a surgeon. 

 

NURSE:  You break the bag of water and the umbilical cord gets kinked and the infant dies pretty quickly so that the procedure's being done on, you know, a dead ‑‑ a dead fetus.  I reached in with the forceps and the sonogram was on one of the limbs, I believe it was the arm and so I pulled and I pulled and put it in a dish.  And he moved the sonogram over and the heart was still beating. 

"Imagine if I came over and I put something around you or your child at any age or your grandfather who has Alzheimer's and doesn't really understand and I put a chain or a clamp around his arm and I pull it off his body," Glenn said after hearing the audio. "What do you think grandpa, with no quality of life, doesn't really know what's going on, has Alzheimer's.  Do you think Grandpa feels any pain?  That doesn't ‑‑ that doesn't seem to bother her."

And remember, many of these people on the far left are the same people that will organize a protest to protect a tree or won't let you transport lobster because of the "comfort level".

"And they don't care what the baby experiences," Pat said. "They don't care."

Remember, this is also what groups like Draw The Line and The Center for Reproductive Rights consider to be "women's rights" and "reproductive rights". These groups are endorsed by individuals like Meryl Streep, Kevin Bacon, and others who are paid millions to star in our favorite movies.

Stu noted that the woman in that clip was clearly disturbed by the experience and was very uncomfortable with it.

"But she at the end came — she's still doing it.  She's still doing abortions after that experience," he said.

Here's another clip where a woman discusses having seven abortions:

VOICE: Where you are now I've been.  It took me years to get to where I'm at now.  I've had seven abortions; I have three kids.  Take the time.  Think about your decision.  Weigh out your pros and cons.  Having a child is not an easy chore. 

"That's why you have seven abortions because babies, they're not easy chores," Stu said disgusted. "That's the way to look at a newborn life?  It's a chore, and it's not an easy one."

The lack of value for life in these audio clips, to put it lightly, is wildly disturbing. Glenn recalled a line from Les Miserables that puts, not just the late term abortion debate, but the entire abortion debate into a powerful perspective. At the end of the movie, when Jean Valjean is about to die, he and his adopted child, who he has sacrificed everything for, have a moving exchange.

"He knows he's going to die, and he says ‑‑ such a simple line.  "You're the best of my life."  That gets me every time," Glenn said. Because when you stop and think of it, all of the trouble that you might be having with your kids, all the trouble that you might have had with the kids or all the trouble that you are going to have with your kids, when you stop, you will look and say, "You're the best of my life."  And when somebody can look at a child and say, "You're not an easy chore," wow.  I don't even begin to relate."

Earlier this year, Coca-Cola became the poster child for how a corporation could shove leftist ideologies onto its consumers. The company suspended advertising on Facebook in a push to censor former President Donald Trump, published a manifesto about racial equity, and demanded all legal teams working for Coke meet certain diversity quotas.

But now, after Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tx.), Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), and many other conservative voices called for a boycott of the company's products, Coca-Cola appears to be shifting directions.

The Washington Examiner reported that the company issued a conciliatory statement after conspicuously failing to appear on a published list of hundreds of corporations and individuals that signed a statement denouncing the Georgia voting bill.

"We believe the best way to make progress now is for everyone to come together and listen respectfully, share concerns, and collaborate on a path forward. We remained open and productive conversations with advocacy groups and lawmakers who may have differing views," the company said. "It's time to find common ground. In the end, we all want the same thing – free and fair elections, the cornerstone of our democracy."

Then last week, Coca-Cola Co.'s new general counsel, Monica Howard Douglas, told members of the company's global legal team that the diversity initiative announced by her predecessor, Bradley Gayton, is "taking a pause for now." Gayton resigned unexpectedly from the position on April 21, after only eight months on the job, to serve as a strategic consultant to Chairman and CEO James Quincey.

"Why is Coca-Cola 'taking a pause' on all of these? Because you have been standing up," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. "You and others have been standing up. Your voice, it's the power of one. Your voice makes a difference."

This week on "The Glenn Beck Podcast," civil rights activist and Woodson Center founder Bob Woodson joined Glenn to call out the leftists in the "race grievance industry," like the Rev. Al Sharpton and Black Lives Matter, Inc., who, he says, are "profiting off the misery of their people."

Woodson lived through the appalling segregation laws of the last century and has a much different message about what it means to be "oppressed" than the so-called "anti-racist" activists today.

Woodson said he believes the real struggle for impoverished minority communities "is not racial." He argued that leftists "at the top" derive "moral authority" by claiming to represent "so called marginalized groups," while they prosper at the expense of those "at the bottom."

"There's nothing worse than self-flagellating guilty white people and rich, angry black people who profit off the misery of their people," Woodson said.

"I call what Sharpton and some of those are doing is worse than bigotry. It's treason. It's moral treason against their own people," he added. "The only time you hear from them is when a white police officer kills a black person, which happens maybe 20 or 21 times a year, but 6,000 blacks are killed each year by other blacks. So, in other words, their message is black lives only matter when taken by someone white, which means you are betraying the black community when you turn your back on 20 children that are slaughtered and you don't march in that community and demand that those killers be turned over to the police."

'The problem is not racial," Woodson asserted. "The problem is the challenge of upward mobility. Any time you generalize about a group of people, blacks, whites, Native American, and then you try to apply remedies, it always benefits those at the top at the expense of those at the bottom. ... It's a bait and switch game where you're using the demographics of the worst of these, to get resources that helps the best of these, or those who are prospering at the top. So, if I was the president, I would say an end to the race grievance business, that America should concentrate on the moral and spiritual free fall that is consuming people at the bottom."

Following President Joe Biden's first joint address to Congress, Glenn Beck joined fellow BlazeTV host and author of the new book, "American Marxism," Mark Levin to expose what they called the "Liar-In-Chief's" radical plans for our country and to explain why the far Left's proposals and programs are really a "frontal attack" on our Constitution, our country, and our way of life.

"Substantively, this is a frontal attack on our Constitutional system of limited government. It is a frontal attack on our capitalist system. He's basically throwing out all the bromides for the radical left groups that now form the base of the modern Democrat Party. And I make the case that ... this is Marxist bullcrap in its broadest sense," Levin stated.

"Here we are, a country now where one man can get up in the middle of the night and make a list of everything he wants to do to the country," he added, speaking figuratively. "It's like an unreality where we're living in separate worlds ... the whole thing is a fraud."

Watch the video clip below to hear Levin expose the lies and misinformation in Biden's speech and explain why he believes the true message is absolutely chilling for the future of our nation:

After months of delays and COVID-19 excuses, President Biden finally delivers his address to the joint session of Congress. It is a truly historic moment, as only a few hundred members of Congress received an invite. While some have compared this speech to JFK's moon landing challenge, it will likely be more like FDR's New Deal nightmare. Will Speaker Pelosi continue her tradition of ripping up the president's speech? Will VP Harris cackle to a quiet audience?

Glenn Beck teams up with fellow BlazeTV host Mark Levin, author of the new book "American Marxism," to take on the progressive plans that could completely transform our economy and our way of life. Steve Deace, BlazeTV host and author of "Faucian Bargain," joins to discuss why it's not enough for conservatives to just lament the dangerous Democrat agenda; we must activate against the woke infection of our institutions. Plus, a power panel to rival CNN talking heads: Stu Burguiere, BlazeTV host of "Stu Does America," and Jason Buttrill, head researcher and writer for Glenn Beck.
