Hillary Clinton broke the universal code of the abortion business recently when asked about the constitutional rights of an unborn child.
"Well, under our laws currently, that is not something that exists," Clinton said. "The --- the --- the unborn person doesn't have constitutional rights."
Struggling with an answer, Clinton unwittingly called an unborn child "a person." While that's a no-brainer for most, it's a major no-no in the abortion industry.
"If I may quote from the Planned Parenthood guidebook," Glenn said Monday on The Glenn Beck Program:
"She's not only violating all of the Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger laws, she's also wrong about the law," Glenn said. "If you're a drunk driver and you hit a car and it has a pregnant woman and she loses the baby and she dies, you've just killed two people. Not one, but two."
For some reason, we've made this mental leap that it's killing a person if you're a drunk driver, but it's just a fetus if you're a mom doing it.
"You can't have it both ways," Glenn said. "You can't have it both ways."

Below is a rush transcript of this segment, it might contain errors:
GLENN: How do we come together as a nation, when we're so divided and we're so far apart on things like this? The answer is: Maybe we're not supposed to. Maybe on this particular issue we never will. And that's okay.
There was a time in my life when I was unfeeling, uncaring. I was selfish. I only thought about me. I only thought about my next drink. I only thought about my next buck. I didn't even think about my family.
I've changed. And I see this very clearly. What she just said is an unborn person. Person is a legal term. Person identifies someone as having constitutional rights. And she just broke the universal abortion law. You don't say those things. And if I may quote --
PAT: Right. Right.
GLENN: If I may quote from the Planned Parenthood guidebook: They discourage pro-choice advocates from using such terms as "abort a child." Instead recommending more accurate or appropriate alternatives, quoting, such as end of pregnancy or have an abortion.
Abort a child is medically inaccurate as the fetus is not yet a child, says the guide.
Terminate a pregnancy is commonly used. However, some people prefer to avoid this, as terminate has negative connotations. Terminator, or assassinate, for some people. The guidebook also advises against the terms baby, dead fetus, unborn baby, unborn child, when discussing what's about to be aborted. Instead, it recommends the term embryo, fetus, and the pregnancy. The alternatives are medically accurate terms, as the embryo or fetus is not a baby.
But the specific term "person" is a legal concept that includes rights and statuses that the law protects, including the protection of a person's life under the laws against homicide.
How is Hillary Clinton not only violating all of the rules by calling an unborn child a person --
GLENN: -- she's not only violating all of the Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger laws, she's also wrong about the law. That's why if you're a drunk driver and you hit a car and it has a pregnant woman and she loses the baby and she dies, you've just killed two people. Not one. But two.
The law does actually respect and give rights to that person in the womb. For some reason or not, we have -- we have made this mental gymnastics jump to say, "Yes, you're killing a person in a car if you're a drunk driver, but if the mom wants to do it, it's just a fetus, and it's definitely not a person." You can't have it both ways. You can't have it both ways. And this is one of those things where we were silent for too long.
GLENN: I've thought about our silence an awful lot this weekend. We were silent too long. And we cannot be silent anymore.
PAT: Yeah. And does it get anymore wrong about the Constitution not protecting unborn people? We, the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity. What is an unborn baby but your posterity, protected right from the very beginning of the Constitution?
GLENN: Let's just say this: My daughter, she got pregnant. And I immediately congratulated her for carrying the non-human organism that's inside her body. My wife immediately began planning a fetus shower.
PAT: Nice. Nice.
STU: So I have a quick legal question on this. So this is interesting. If an unborn child does not have constitutional rights, can we quarter soldiers inside the womb?
GLENN: I --
STU: That's their house, right? So I think we have rights to park as many soldiers as we want inside of pregnant women because they have no constitutional right and the Third Amendment doesn't apply to them.
GLENN: Okay. All right.
STU: Thoughts? Thoughts? Can we debate on this one?
GLENN: No, I think we're going to think on that one.
It's obvious. Of course, you have constitutional rights.
PAT: Of course.
STU: I mean, this idea -- you have to go into the delusional denial of saying this isn't a person to get to these arguments.
PAT: A terrorist -- they will make -- and Hillary Clinton would certainly make this case, terrorists who commit an act of terrorism on our soil or illegal aliens who are here are protected by the Constitution. Everybody within our borders, protected by the Constitution. But an unborn baby isn't?
PAT: An unborn baby has zero rights? That's ludicrous.
GLENN: It's ludicrous. It's ludicrous. It is -- for instance, let's take -- when we come back, I want to take something that was said by Sarah Palin this weekend.
GLENN: Because it is -- it's very similar. It's very similar. Who do we care about? What people do we care about? The answer to abortion is love. Love the mothers. Love the children. The answer is adoption. You want to stop abortion: adopt a child. Demand that adoption is the answer. The answer always comes from love.
