NARAL produced one of the worst political ads of all time, and that’s saying something given the illustrious list of terrible campaign ads (see: Wendy Davis). The NARAL ad says if Corey Gardner is elected, he’ll ban condoms. Yes, seriously. Glenn plays and reacts to the ad on radio today.
Listen to the ad and the guys' hillarious reaction below:
After playing the nonsensical ad, Glenn tied it to another story he saw. According to Mark Harrington of Created Equal: "We encounter people who think it is morally acceptable to kill babies after birth on a regular basis at almost every campus we visit...While this viewpoint is still seen as shocking by most people, it is becoming increasingly popular."
"They're doing a great job telling them that human life isn't important. And that even after you're born, you're still not children," Pat said before joking, "I mean, Jeffy, you're in the 453rd trimester, I'm not sure we could abort you. I'd be opposed to that."
"This is why the phrase pro-life is so important. Because the people who are antilife, the people who are pro-choice, are antilife. And you know it because the real activists - they know that it's life," Glenn said.
"If it is a baby, you don't have a right. If it's life, you don't have the right to take that life. That's called murder. And so what's happening is: The people are saying, well, yes, it is life, but you still have a right to take that life if it's inside of you. Now, that's morphing into, well, if there's a problem, if there's a reason to get rid of that life. It is the slippery slope."
"Anybody who didn't see the slippery slope, you didn't buy into the slippery slope, people also said that we would never deny God, back in the 1960s. We would never be a nation that would deny God. We'll never be openly hostile to God. Look at us now. People who said -- we're not talked about bathrooms for everybody that everybody can use any bathroom. Well, yes, we are. We're not talking about getting into your church and telling your priest or your rabbi or your pastor who they can and cannot marry. Yes, they are. We're not talking about somebody who is making a wedding cake and will be forced to do anything. Yes, you are."
"We said on all those things, slippery slope. You go down this road and it's a slippery slope. We're not talking about saying that -- the next thing you will say, people are going to come to school with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and the kid will bite it in the shape of the gun, and then that will be a Class 2 weapon. Yes, that's what's happened."
