Anti-abortion activist Lila Rose tells Glenn how to fight Planned Parenthood

Glenn will be the first to admit that wants to just be a lazy slug, so the fact that he's planning to get active in the fight for the lives of the unborn shows a unique level of passion. After all, this isn't just talking about high taxes and bad healthcare policy - these are human lives being destroyed by Planned Parenthood. But where does one get started? Glenn invited pro-life activist Lila Rose onto the show to explain how people can start taking a stand today.

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it may contain errors:

GLENN: Let me go to Lila Rose. She's from liveaction.org. This is a topic that all of us have been on radio for a very long time. None of us have ever really talked about abortion on the air because that's just -- there's no -- there's no faster way to drive listeners to drink or to another station than to talk about abortion. And we've never talked about it up until the last few years. Now it is -- to me, with what's happening with Planned Parenthood, this is such a clear sign of, you're on the book of life or you're on the book of death, that I can't not talk about it. I have to -- I met with my family last night and said, we have to become activists. But I don't even know what that means. And so I wanted to get Lila Rose on. She's with liveaction.org. And she is -- if you don't know who she is, she's one of the more incredible activists. How old are you, Lila?

LILA: I just turned 27. I'm getting up there, Glenn.

GLENN: I know. You're an old lady.

When you were in college, your face, and I think it still is, is put in every Planned Parenthood location as watch for this girl. Because you were making recordings of them. You would go in as an underage girl and show that they were doing illegal things. Right?

LILA: Right. I mean, some of my first investigations of Planned Parenthood exposed their rampant sexual abuse cover-ups of minor girls. So I posed and then later on we trained investigative teams to pose as underage girls or as the abusers of underage girls, including the pimps and the sex traffickers of minor girls. And Planned Parenthood clinics across-the-board in dozens of situations agreed to cover up the sexual abuse of minors or aid and abet sex traffickers. And we also documented many cases where there is actual ongoing lawsuits where young girls were settled out of court -- young girls sued Planned Parenthood for the sexual abuse cover-up that they endured because the best friend of a pedophile or the best friend of a statutory rapist is a reproductive health clinic, quote, unquote, an abortion facility that will deal with the evidence of their crime, that helpless unborn child. And so it's in their best interest to get that little girl a secret abortion so that no one ever knows about the attack against her.

GLENN: That's phenomenal. And you were doing this when you were, you know, a relative kid. Now you're 27. And you have taken the fight against abortion to new levels. I want to ask you as someone who has never been involved in this stuff before. How can I get involved? What do we do as people?

LILA: Thanks, Glenn. I think there's absolutely work for people to do. And there's a few steps. There's some immediate more simple steps. And then there's the more day-to-day grind steps, which takes patience and persistence.

First of all, immediately, we're dealing with the defunding fight on Capitol Hill. We have two Democrats in the Senate, ten more votes that we had in 2007, in the Senate to defund Planned Parenthood. We're five votes away -- five votes away from success. So this is a fight that we have now. We have petitions going.

I know people are like, well, what does a petition do? Your name does count. Our goal is to get to a million signees by the end of August. We're working with other groups, even potentially some other campaigns behind the scenes to get petition signees all together in a database so that we can rally troops.

And right now we're at -- Live Action's petition alone is at 160,000. That should be -- there's no reason that shouldn't be in the hundreds of thousands. We're trying to get up the numbers of people who can get behind defunding Planned Parenthood to show that the country is not only ready for this to happen, but the country demands that we stop funding the abortion industry.

GLENN: So how do we sign that?

LILA: So that's at PlannedParenthoodExposed.com or .org. PlannedParenthoodExposed.org. It has a petition on there. It has information on there that you can share about Planned Parenthood's atrocities. Facts you can share with friends, family, people that may not know the facts. That's the first thing. The second thing is to be bold about speaking about this. Posting about this. Talking about this with friends, family, neighbors. Not shying away from the issue. Because it's too late to shy away from the issue. This is prepped up in our own communities. They're butchering children. They're selling their body parts in an industry making millions of dollars across the country.

The government is funding this on both sides. The government funds Planned Parenthood a half of a billion dollars a year, 1.4 million a day. And then they're funding the National Institute of Health over $60 million for fetal tissue research. So on both ends of the spectrum, the government is paying for this. So talk about it in our communities.

And the last one. This is where the persistence and the day-to-day grind happens. Is get involved. There's work to be done on the pro-life movement. It needs people from all walks of life, all political backgrounds. Every kind of -- every kind of person can be involved in one way or another. There's the compassion side of the movement, making sure that you have the highest and the best technology in your local pregnancy care center. You're caring for women in tough pregnancy situations. You're marketing to them in your communities to make sure that they hear from pro-lifers and those that will help them before walking into an abortion clinic. Praying and counseling outside of abortion clinics. Working with your local community to make sure that the zoning laws or the -- or the regulations for your community or city don't allow Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics to set up shop. Getting Planned Parenthood out of your local schools.

It's amazing to me how many parents are unaware of the way that Planned Parenthood is active to our nation's kids in our own communities at our own schools. And sometimes even contracts with private schools. So working to find out -- get to the bottom of it. Is Planned Parenthood allowed in any way, shape, or form in my school? Making sure that they're not. And then, of course, getting involved politically in our states and then at the federal level. Making sure that we have 110 percent politicians. That we won't stand for anyone who will even be halfway.

Keep in mind, under George Bush -- and I love, you know, President George Bush. I think he had a lot of good things -- I think he had a good heart. But under his administration, four and a half years of a Republican-controlled Senate and House, they still funded Planned Parenthood in the '90s. I was in high school. I wasn't on Capitol Hill the way I'm able to be now. But they were funding Planned Parenthood. So don't think that just because there's an R next to the name of the politician, our answers are going to be -- we're going to have our solution. We need to be active in pressuring and pushing for folks in office to do their job and getting the right people in office. Those are just a few thoughts.

GLENN: I think I have asked that question from people on this show over and over again, and it's always bullcrap answers. That's probably the most complete answer I've ever received from anybody.

LILA: Well, let's do it. Let's do it.

GLENN: Lila, how do you feel -- I mean, you are optimistic. I looked at this do-nothing Congress couldn't even stop the funding of a slaughterhouse. And I look at that as a horrible sign. You actually -- you actually have hope.

LILA: I'm a realist, Glenn. I like you. What I'm seeing though is change. And that's what gives me the hope. I see real change.

Again, in 2011, 42 votes in the Senate, no Democrats to defund Planned Parenthood. Two Democrats now. Fifty-two. It would have been 54 if McConnell and Lindsey Graham had shown up to the vote. That's a whole other story. But McConnell only didn't vote because he wanted to retain the ability to bring the vote up again. So we basically had 54 votes. There's a lot of work, and then there's an independent we need to move and then five more Democrats. There are pro-life Democrats though who voted to protect Planned Parenthood funding.

There's work that can be done behind the scenes here. People's voices do matter right now. I think the worst that the killer of the pro-life movement -- the killer of this country is the idea that people don't change, and things can't change. And that's why our rallying call from the beginning, when we first started doing investigations, before 2011, in 2011 -- yes, we know a Republican-held government funded Planned Parenthood in the '90s. Yes, we know that we've always funded Planned Parenthood for over two dozen years, and it was actually Republicans and Democrats for the architects from the Title X funding that now goes to the abortion industry. Yes, we know those things. But that can change.

The Republican -- not the Republican -- the establishment. The Washington machine, as Ted Cruz calls it, the control, the cartel in D.C. they do not have all the power we think that they have. They are sensitive to the outcry of the American people because they don't want to lose their positions. So don't lose hope and realize that we can make a change. I think that needs to be our message. And we're seeing its success already.

GLENN: Can you address -- because I think most people who are in this audience, they haven't watched the videos. And they don't want to watch the videos. Because they already know it's going to be horrible. And they don't want to -- they don't want to be the person that's posting those videos. They don't even want to think about it. But they support you.

Can you explain why these videos are important? To be shared and to be seen by everybody.

LILA: Yes. And I'll use -- I'll sometimes use this analogy. Every era has its own injustice. And you've talked about this before, Glenn. Every era has its own injustice. And we look back at the atrocities of history and we wonder, how could that have happened amongst good people who were surrounding it?

Nazi Germany. There were some good Germans who were just kind of allowing it to happen. And the trains would roll by with the Jewish prisoners off to their death. And there would be silence in the community, or there would just be inaction from the community. They didn't agree with the regime of the Nazis. But they allowed it.

In our country, slavery, we knew that it was happening in the South. We knew that it was sometimes happening in our own communities. We were uncomfortable. But what did we do to stop the incredible injustices perpetrated against our own brothers and sisters?

Today is no different, except I would argue today is the worst that our country and I believe in many ways human history has ever seen. Because the largest number of the most weakest members of our society are being destroyed by the thousands each day. Over 50 million children since this became legal in 1973 in Roe v. Wade. This is of incredible -- this is of epic proportions, and the crisis intensifies every day it continues, as more people are wounded in the wake of the killing.

So if that's not enough to give people courage -- and I think it is enough to give people courage. If you need a little more courage. Give yourself the encounter to inspire you. To touch your heart with the humanity of a child and the inhumanity of an abortion. By having the courage to watch one of the videos of what Planned Parenthood is doing in our own communities, near to our churches and schools.

I mean, I think that is just a simple plea. I think millions of people have responded to that plea. These videos have been viewed millions of times now. Videos of Planned Parenthood and their abuses have been viewed tens of millions of times, and these ones are making incredible progress, showing Planned Parenthood covering up, Planned Parenthood negotiating -- bartering the sale of baby body parts.

Give yourself that opportunity to be cut to the heart so that you can feel as well as you may know the passion or the -- the realization of what's happening so that you can feel inspired to do something more. We are human beings. We're mind and heart. We're emotions and intellect. We need to be connected to this because it's so sanitized. It's so hidden. It's so full of false rhetoric. It's so politicized. We need to get in touch with what's really happening. And these videos are a door, a window into the facilities that are doing the killings to give us that opportunity.

GLENN: Lila, thank you very much. Appreciate it. And we pray for you.

LILA: Thank you.

GLENN: You are really truly a warrior. God bless you. Lila Rose. She is with liveaction.org. And follow her advice. Follow her advice.

11 things you can do to help stop the Great Reset

The foundation of the American way of life is freedom from tyranny, which can only exist in a nation that defends the rights, powers, and property of individuals and families. Over the past two centuries, the greatest threats to liberty have come from governments, both foreign and domestic. And from the beaches of Normandy to the civil rights movement of the 1960s, Americans have repeatedly conquered the challenges placed before them by those seeking to extinguish or limit individual rights.

However, over the past few years, a new, potentially catastrophic danger has emerged, but not primarily from the halls of Congress or state capitols. This threat to freedom has largely emanated from the board rooms of the world’s wealthiest, most powerful corporations, large financial institutions, central banks, and international organizations such as the United Nations and World Economic Forum.

In an attempt to secure vast amounts of wealth and influence over society, corporate CEOs, bankers, and investors, working closely with key government officials, have launched a unified effort to impose environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards on most of the industrialized global economy. ESG standards are also referred to as “sustainable investment” or “stakeholder capitalism.” According to a report by KPMG, thousands of companies, located in more than 50 countries, already have ESG systems in place, including 82 percent of large companies in the United States.

ESG standards are designed to create a “great reset of capitalism” and to “revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions.” ESG supporters plan to enact these radical changes by using ESG schemes to alter how businesses and investments are evaluated, so that instead of focusing on the quality of goods and services, profits, and other traditional economic metrics, companies — including financial institutions — are evaluated largely on their commitment to social justice and environmental causes and then assigned scores so that companies can be compared, rewarded, or potentially punished.

Supporters of the movement for a Great Reset also plan on using technology to limit free speech and privacy rights, and they support creating vast new government programs that are designed to transform the Western economy via the Green New Deal, European Green Deal, a federal jobs guarantee, and basic income programs.

Together, the proposals that make up the Great Reset represent the most serious threat to freedom in the West since the fall of the Soviet Union and perhaps since World War II. But there is hope. We can stop the Great Reset, but only if we act quickly and with great conviction.

Below are 11 steps you can take to push back against the Great Reset. These steps represent a powerful bottom-up, grassroots approach to the Great Reset’s top-down plan to remake the world. Although many of these steps won’t be easy for everyone to take, they are essential for ensuring that our children and grandchildren will grow up in a world that protects the rights of individuals and empowers families, rather than wealthy special interests, financial institutions, and large corporations.

1. Live Not by Lies: The time for remaining quiet is over. When you hear or see something that you know to be false, speak up. Be kind, generous, and compassionate, but do not, under any circumstances, allow lies to infect your life. Further, do not support organizations, publications, politicians, schools, or any other institutions that regularly promote false claims.

2. Buy Local: The reason the Great Reset is so powerful is because so many of us have become totally dependent on large multinational corporations. They can be easily manipulated in a way that small, local businesses cannot. Learn to buy local, whenever possible, even if it means spending more money on your purchases. Yes, big corporations offer conveniences and low prices that many small businesses can’t compete with, but those benefits come with a great cost: your freedom.

3. Bank Local: Big financial institutions and banks are driving much of the Great Reset movement. They have started to use their incredible wealth and power to alter society by financing only those businesses who agree to the terms of the Great Reset. This problem is going to get worse, so it’s important to find local banks and credit unions you can trust and who refuse to utilize ESG scores and other discriminatory schemes.

4. Support Local Farms: If you live in an area that has local farms and farmer’s markets, consider buying as many of your groceries as possible from farmers. In the future, food production and distribution are going to change dramatically. It’s important that you support local farmers and build relationships with individuals who can provide you with the goods you need in a time of crisis. One of our main goals must be to make local communities as self-sufficient as possible, and that cannot happen unless we support local farms.

5. Be Vocal: After starting to shop and bank locally, be sure to tell big financial institutions and corporations why they have lost your business. They need to know that their decisions have serious consequences.

6. Run for Local Government: Local and state governments will soon be our most important defense against the Great Reset. Consider running for your local school board, zoning board, or even for a state legislative office. If you don’t feel qualified for these positions, find someone who shares your values and help them run for office. If we don’t have control of our local governments, we won’t be able to halt the Great Reset.

7. Demand That Your State Pass Laws Against ESG Scores: In America, states have a tremendous amount of power to slow the Great Reset and protect their citizens from abuses by large corporations, banks, and international institutions. They can do this by passing laws that make the use of ESG metrics and other, similar systems by financial institutions illegal, when used as a precondition for banking services, financing, investment, etc. ESG scores are, by definition, discriminatory and should be made illegal by state lawmakers who care about protecting their citizens’ rights.

8. Make Responsible Spending a Key Issue for Politicians: In recent years, politicians on the ideological left and right have totally abandoned responsible fiscal policy in favor of vast money printing and loose monetary policies. The many trillions of dollars that have been “printed” in recent years put our economy at risk and are being used to fuel the Great Reset. Without these trillions of dollars of printed money, it would be exceptionally difficult for governments and financial institutions to buy off corporations.

9. Organize Anti-Great Reset Groups: No matter where you live, there are Americans in your community who do not support the Great Reset — Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike. Find like-minded neighbors and organize a local, peaceful resistance. Find people you can trust and agree to support one another when times get tough. Now, more than ever, we need to develop dependable communities.

10. Buy Property and Diversify: Property ownership is going to become increasingly more difficult in the months and years to come. It’s important that you work with a qualified financial adviser to help you figure out the best way to buy property and diversify your investments. Buying hard assets, including real estate and precious metals, could be a good way for you to protect against the Great Reset and a possible financial collapse. If you already own property, resist selling it to large corporations and financial institutions, whenever possible. (This is not financial advice, and I’m not a financial adviser. Talk to an expert you trust before taking action!)

11. Make the Great Reset a Litmus Test for Politicians: Before supporting politicians, find out if they know what the Great Reset is and what they plan to do to stop it. If they aren’t familiar with the Great Reset or don’t have a plan to halt it, then demand that they learn about the Great Reset and develop a proposal to prevent it. Political leaders who refuse to take the Great Reset seriously do not deserve your support. This is the key issue of our generation.

Scott Quiner was transferred over the weekend to a hospital in Texas after doctors in Minnesota threated to terminate life support measures as he battled severe complications from COVID-19. Scott's wife, Anne Quiner, appealed to the courts for a restraining order to prevent the hospital from pulling the plug as she sought a new facility to provide medical care for her husband. Scott was unvaccinated when he tested positive for COVID-19 in late October, 2021.

Anne and her attorney Marjorie Holsten joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Thursday to describe their frantic efforts to halt the hospital's decision to turn off Scott's life support — allegedly because he was unvaccinated — and just how difficult it was to get him the medical treatment he needed.

"It was absolutely stunning," Holsten told Glenn. "[Anne] came in and she has this order, I saw the screenshot from the [online medical] chart that said [Scott] is basically scheduled for execution at noon the following day."

According to Holsten, the Minnesota hospital responded to her appeal for a restraining order by claiming that the "position" to keep Scott alive "is not supported by medical science or Minnesota law. As a result, Mercy will ask the court to issue an order that Mercy has the authority to discontinue Mr. Quiner's ventilator and proceed with his medical care plan."

"The 'medical care plan' was the plan to discontinue the ventilator at noon, which leads to death very shortly. So that was at 10 o'clock, but then at 11 o'clock, before the 12 o'clock execution, the judge did, in fact, sign an order saying the hospital is restrained from pulling the plug," she added.

Anne told Glenn that doctors in Texas were shocked by Scott's condition after he arrived from the Minnesota hospital. Not only had he been given dangerous drugs, he was also found to be “severely malnourished."

"The doctor [in Texas] spent two hours with Scott and when he came back out, he said, 'I don't know how he even made it, how he even survived that other hospital ... but I will do everything I can to try to save his life,'" Anne explained.

"And the doctor [in Texas] said Scott was the most undernourished patient he has ever seen," Holsten added.

"Glenn, we are first bringing this battle to the court of public opinion," Holsten continued. "What we are showing the world is that Scott was near death because of the protocols used in that [Minnesota] hospital, but now he is recovering. He is getting better.... Now, we're not planning a funeral, we're planning for his release."

The Great Reset is not just an elitist idea — it’s not even a socialist utopian concept. It’s a real-world fascist threat to every American from Wall Street to Main Street. It’s happening now in policies and cultural shifts big and small, obvious and subtle, from environmental promises to corporations going woke. But the mainstream media, global elites, and politicians brushed off the Great Reset as “nothing to see here.” Another myth they push: “The World Economic Forum is just a conference for elites who have no REAL power.”

Glenn Beck first exposed the Great Reset almost two years ago, and the globalist cries of "conspiracy theorist" soon followed. They said he believed the WEF was a “master cabal calling the shots from some evil underground lair.” But Glenn Beck never said that. Instead, he uncovered the true intentions of global leaders in finance and politics by simply highlighting their own words.

This week, the same global elites are doubling down on their agenda at the World Economic Forum’s Davos Agenda virtual event. But still, the global elites — like Twitter’s Jack Dorsey — are trying to downplay the WEF’s influence to stop people like us from interfering with their plans. The oligarchy will prosper in the new world order they’ve designed. You will not.

So Glenn unveils a master chalkboard based on his best-selling new book to outline the threats from globalists and why we must stop their agenda if we hope to keep the precious freedoms we still have.

Kim Iversen, journalist, YouTuber, and host of "The Kim Iversen Show," reacted to Glenn Beck's appearance last week on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" by conceding that, while the subject of Beck's new book, "The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism" might at first sound "a little bit loony," closer analysis confirms "this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all."

"Glenn Beck was on Tucker Carlson's show last week touting what has been called a right-wing conspiracy theory and discussing his new book, 'The Great Reset: Joe Biden and the Rise of Twenty-First-Century Fascism'," began Iverson on The Hill's "Rising."

"Well, maybe that all sounds a little bit loony — and believe me, I do think Glenn Beck tends to be a loon," she quipped. "But, maybe this isn't such a crazy conspiracy theory after all. And after seeing everything we've seen with the governments enacting all sorts of authoritarian controls and many other conspiracy theories coming true, maybe there's something to be concerned about. So, what is the Great Reset? The name even sounds conspiratorial, but believe it or not, it's a real thing."

Iverson went on to explain exactly who is behind the Great Reset, what their agenda entails, how they are using the COVID-19 pandemic to "to rebuild society in a way the global elites see best fit."

"You'll own nothing and you will be happy: That's what they're saying," Iverson explained. "And with inflation sky high and no signs of it slowing down, they might be right. We are on our way to becoming a nation of renters, but don't worry it's nothing to fear ... don't worry, everything is being done under the premise that this is all ... being done for our own good, the benefit of a collective society, and we will be happy," she added sarcastically.

Iverson concluded by asking, "Who thinks it's a good idea that a bunch of corporate millionaire and billionaires and world leaders are getting together and coming up with what's best for we the little people? I mean, who thinks that that's a really good idea? And who thinks that they are going to be doing it for our benefit? But, of course they're going to frame it like 'Oh, this is good for you. You're going to rent. You'll own nothing and you'll be happy. Don't worry about it' ... When you look at the actual list of partners with the World Economic Forum, they control everything. They control media. They control health. They control business. They control everything, and so then it does become, how do we people fight against that?"
