Cecile Richards Gets Excited When Women Talk About Killing Their Babies

The left once touted a trifecta as its mantra on abortion: safe, legal and rare. But things have changed.

"We have lost one of the three big things that the left used to preach about, which was safe, legal and rare. They no longer care about rare," Co-host Stu Burguiere said Friday on The Glenn Beck Program.

Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, recently stated that she gets excited hearing about how and why women choose to get an abortion:

RELATED: Real Men Are Pro-Life

For too many years, certainly for my generation, all issues about sex and sexuality were stigmatized. Abortion was, homosexuality was. And the exciting thing to me now is that young people are telling their stories and they are living out loud. More women are telling their abortion stories, and I told mine. I think once we get out of the shadows, and I think the LGBT movement has led the way in this, it normalizes what should be an open and honest conversation.

"You know, I get excited when people tell me their stories about killing people, too. Don't you? I always enjoy that," Co-host Pat Gray added.

• Is abortion still a terrible decision women struggle with?

• Has intentionally dehumanizing fetuses led to more abortions?

• Why have women allowed abortion to become a common form of birth control?

• Can fetuses turn into Buicks or brussel sprouts?

• Does Cecil Richards care about human life?

PAT: Oh, Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood gets excited when she hears about how and why women choose to get their abortions. That's great.

You know, I get excited when people tell me their stories about killing people too. Don't you? I always enjoy that.

STU: Well, there's an entire --

PAT: A lot of fun. A lot of fun.

STU: -- you know, billion dollar industry of horror movies. People like to -- they definitely like to engage.

PAT: That's true. That's very true.

STU: Violent video games are --

PAT: So, yeah. Call us and share your favorite murder story.

STU: Again, we have lost one of the three big things that the left used to preach about, which was safe, legal, and rare. They no longer care about rare.

PAT: At all.

STU: They want it to be safe, I guess. I mean, although, you see with Gosnell and others, it's not necessarily at the top of their list of interests.

They want it to be legal. That's the number one. They want it to be legal. And it seems like it's more like, kind of safe, legal, and encouraged is the new slogan.

Because now it is -- it's not about, well, this is a terrible decision, and women struggle with it. And -- that's not the pitch anymore. The pitch is, this is a wonderful thing to help our lives. You know, I wouldn't have been able to get the job I got. My -- who knows, I would have been in debt. Like they say these things as if they're the equivalent --

PAT: It would have been really inconvenient for me at the time.

STU: Yeah. I wouldn't have been able to deal with it. Well, look, it can be very difficult to deal with in certain circumstances.

PAT: Right. That's why there's adoption.

STU: There's other things to address that issue.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: You know, but the idea that you're going to praise this, because why? Because I think it's -- they've realized that they're only going to get to a certain point by saying, "This is a really negative activity that we must allow in society." They have to turn it into, this is a very positive activity to make any further in the debate I guess.

PAT: And she says, the exciting thing to me now is that young people are telling their stories, and they're living out loud. More women are telling their abortion stories. And I told mine. I think once we get out of the shadows, and I think the LGBT movement has led the way on this, it normalizes what should be an open and honest conversation.

JEFFY: What.

PAT: And so now, yeah, that's the thing, to normalize abortion. And to make it just the most natural and wonderful thing you can do. We've already had open and honest conversations, at least from our standpoint we're honest about it. We're certainly open about it.

They're not honest about it. It would be nice if they would be honest about it and at least admit, it's human life they're talking about. And they won't. They won't do that.

JEFFY: So...

STU: It's kind of why at some level I respect people like her and the Sandra Fluke's of the world. It's like, at least they're admitting it.

PAT: Uh-huh.

STU: They're saying -- I mean, they're not trying to couch this in a, well, look, I'm personally against it. And I would never say -- after six months, then I think it's bad. They're like, nah, eight seconds before birth, kill it.

PAT: Right. Right.

STU: And while I think that's abhorrent and terrible, at least they're being honest about it. It's very rare from someone on that side of the aisle to be honest about this issue.

PAT: True.

STU: And in some ways, it's nice to see. You wonder like, if America has an opportunity to go through an honest debate with one side of the aisle saying, "You know we should be able to kill this thing at any point. Maybe a few months after birth. I mean, if it's really annoying, crying all the time, colic-y, eh, let's pull the trigger." If you have one side of the aisle saying that and the other one saying, "Well, we think human life is kind of important to defend -- if we lose that battle, we deserve everything we get from it.

PAT: Yeah.

STU: We deserve a collapse of our entire society if that's one that can be lost.

PAT: Other than aborting Jeffy in his 644th trimester, you know, you can't disagree with what you just said any more. And you've got people like Debbie Wasserman Schultz who wouldn't even admit her own children were human before they were born. Remember that?

VOICE: You have three children, correct?

DEBBIE: I do.

VOICE: What are their ages?

DEBBIE: I have twin 16-year-olds and a 12-year-old.

VOICE: And in your opinion, were they human beings before they were born?

DEBBIE: You know, I believe that every woman has the right to make their own reproductive choices.

PAT: That's not the question.

VOICE: What did you believe about your children though?

DEBBIE: That I had the right to make my own reproductive choices, which I was glad -- a right which I was proud to have.

VOICE: So were they human beings? Just yes or no.

PAT: Well, one of them was. One of them was a Buick. One of them was a brussels sprout before it was born.

DEBBIE: They're human beings today. And I'm glad that I had an opportunity to make my own reproductive --

JEFFY: They're human beings today.

PAT: They're human beings today. I mean, that's just complete dishonesty.

JEFFY: We were amazed when that brussels sprout grew up to be a human.

PAT: Yeah, I couldn't believe it. Hey, I've got a brussels sprout inside my stomach, but let's see what happens. Maybe we eat it for dinner when it comes out. Then it turned out to be human. Imagine my surprise.

JEFFY: Amazing.

PAT: It's just -- it's so dishonest. It's --

STU: She will not give ground in her little argument.

PAT: And there's so many like her. And you're right, Cecile Richards, she doesn't care.

The current riots and movement to erase America's history are exactly in line with the New York Times' "1619 Project," which argues that America was rotten at its beginning, and that slavery and systemic racism are the roots of everything from capitalism to our lack of universal health care.

On this week's Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck exposed the true intent of the "1619 Project" and its creator, who justifies remaking America into a Marxist society. This clever lie is disguised as history, and it has already infiltrated our schools.

"The '1619 Project' desperately wants to pass itself off as legitimate history, but it totally kneecaps itself by ignoring so much of the American story. There's no mention of any black Americans who succeeded in spite of slavery, due to the free market capitalist system. In the 1619 Project's effort to take down America, black success stories are not allowed. Because they don't fit with the narrative. The role of white Americans in abolishing slavery doesn't fit the narrative either," Glenn said.

"The agenda is not ultimately about history," he added. "It's just yet another vehicle in the fleet now driven by elites in America toward socialism."

Acclaimed environmentalist and author of "Apocalypse Never" Michael Shellenberger joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to warn us about the true goals and effects of climate alarmism: It's become a "secular religion" that lowers standards of living in developed countries, holds developing countries back, and has environmental progress "exactly wrong."

Michael is a Time "Hero of the Environment," Green Book Award winner, and the founder and president of Environmental Progress. He has been called a "environmental guru," "climate guru," "North America's leading public intellectual on clean energy," and "high priest" of the environmental humanist movement for his writings and TED talks, which have been viewed more than 5 million times. But when Michael penned a stunning article in Forbes saying, "On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologize for the Climate Scare", the article was pulled just a few hours later. (Read more here.)

On the show, Micheal talked about how environmental alarmism has overtaken scientific fact, leading to a number of unfortunate consequences. He said one of the problems is that rich nations are blocking poor nations from being able to industrialize. Instead, they are seeking to make poverty sustainable, rather than to make poverty history.

"As a cultural anthropologist, I've been traveling to poorer countries and interviewing small farmers for over 30 years. And, obviously there are a lot of causes why countries are poor, but there's no reason we should be helping them to stay poor," Michael said. "A few years ago, there was a movement to make poverty history ... [but] it got taken over by the climate alarmist movement, which has been focused on depriving poor countries, not just of fossil fuels they need to develop, but also the large hydroelectric dams."

He offered the example of the Congo, one of the poorest countries in the world. The Congo has been denied the resources needed to build large hydroelectric dams, which are absolutely essential to pull people out of poverty. And one of the main groups preventing poor countries from the gaining financing they need to to build dams is based in Berkeley, California — a city that gets its electricity from hydroelectric dams.

"It's just unconscionable ... there are major groups, including the Sierra Club, that support efforts to deprive poor countries of energy. And, honestly, they've taken over the World Bank [which] used to fund the basics of development: roads, electricity, sewage systems, flood control, dams," Micheal said.

"Environmentalism, apocalyptic environmentalism in particular, has become the dominant religion of supposedly secular people in the West. So, you know, it's people at the United Nations. It's people that are in very powerful positions who are trying to impose 'nature's order' on societies," he continued. "And, of course, the problem is that nobody can figure out what nature is, and what it's not. That's not a particular good basis for organizing your economy."

Dr. Voddie Baucham, Dean of Theology at African Christian University in Lusaka, Zambia, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to explain why he agrees with Vice President Mike Pence's refusal to say the phrase "Black Lives Matter."

Baucham, who recently drew national attention when his sermon titled "Ethnic Gnosticism" resurfaced online, said the phrase has been trademarked by a dangerous, violent, Marxist movement that doesn't care about black lives except to use them as political pawns.

"We have to separate this movement from the issues," Baucham warned. "I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use black people.

"That phrase dehumanizes black people, because it makes them pawns in a game that has nothing whatsoever to do with black people and their dignity. And has everything to do with a divisive agenda that is bigger than black people. That's why I'm not going to use that phrase, because I love black people. I love being black."

Baucham warned that Black Lives Matter -- a radical Marxist movement -- is using black people and communities to push a dangerous and divisive narrative. He encouraged Americans to educate themselves on the organization's agenda and belief statement.

"This movement is dangerous. This movement is vicious. And this movement uses black people," he emphasized. "And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community -- and I am -- then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization. Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
