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.

Terry Trobiani owns Gianelli's Drive Thru in Prairie Grove, Illinois, where he put up a row of American flags for the Fourth of July. But the city claimed he was displaying two of them improperly and issued him a $100 ticket for each flag.

Terry joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to explain what he believes really happened. He told Glenn that, according to city ordinance, the American flag is considered "ornamental" and should therefore have been permitted on a federal holiday. But the city has now classified the flag as a "sign."

"Apparently, the village of Prairie Grove has classified the American flag as a sign and they've taken away the symbol of the American flag," Terry said. "So, as a sign, it falls under their temporary sign ordinance, which prohibits any flying, or any positioning of signs on your property — and now this includes the American flag. [...] The only way I could fly the American flag on my property is if I put it on a permanent 20 to 30-foot flagpole, which they have to permit."

Terry went on to explain how the city is now demanding an apology for his actions, and all after more than a year of small-business crushing COVID restrictions and government mandates.

"COVID was tough," Terry stated. "You know, we're in the restaurant business. COVID was tough on us. We succeeded. We made it through. We cut a lot of things, but we never cut an employee. We paid all our employees. I didn't take a paycheck for a year just to keep our employees on, because it was that important to me to keep things going. And, you know, you fight for a year, and you beat a pandemic, and then you have this little municipality with five trustees and a president, who just have no respect for small businesses. And right now, what I see is they have no respect for the republic and the United States ... I think it's terrible. The direction that government, at all levels, have taken us to this point, it's despicable."

The Biden administration is now doing everything it can to censor what it has decided is COVID-19 "misinformation." But Glenn Beck isn't confident that the silencing of voices will stop there.

Yeonmi Park grew up in North Korea, where there is no freedom of speech, and she joined Glenn to warn that America must not let this freedom go.

"Whenever authoritarianism rises, the first thing they go after is freedom of speech," she said.

Most self-proclaimed Marxists know very little about Marxism. Some of them have all the buzzwords memorized. They talk about the exploits of labor. They talk about the slavery of capitalist society and the alienation caused by capital. They talk about the evils of power and domination.

But they don't actually believe what they say. Or else they wouldn't be such violent hypocrites. And we're not being dramatic when we say "violent."

For them, Marxism is a political tool that they use to degrade and annoy their political enemies.

They don't actually care about the working class.

Another important thing to remember about Marxists is that they talk about how they want to defend the working class, but they don't actually understand the working class. They definitely don't realize that the working class is composed mostly of so many of the people they hate. Because, here's the thing, they don't actually care about the working class. Or the middle class. They wouldn't have the slightest clue how to actually work, not the way we do. For them, work involves ranting about how work and labor are evil.

Ironically, if their communist utopia actually arrived, they would be the first ones against the wall. Because they have nothing to offer except dissent. They have no practical use and no real connection to reality.

Again ironically, they are the ultimate proof of the success of capitalism. The fact that they can freely call for its demise, in tweets that they send from their capitalistic iPhones, is proof that capitalism affords them tremendous luxuries.

Their specialty is complaining. They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They sneer at Christianity for promising Heaven in exchange for good deeds on earth — which is a terrible description of Christianity, but it's what they actually believe — and at the same time they criticize Christianity for promising a utopia, they give their unconditional devotion to a religion that promises a utopia.

They are fanatics of a religion that is endlessly cynical.

They think capitalism has turned us into machines. Which is a bad interpretation of Marx's concept of the General Intellect, the idea that humans are the ones who create machines, so humans, not God, are the creators.

They think that the only way to achieve the perfect society is by radically changing and even destroying the current society. It's what they mean when they say things about the "status quo" and "hegemony" and the "established order." They believe that the system is broken and the way to fix it is to destroy, destroy, destroy.

Critical race theory actually takes it a step farther. It tells us that the racist system can never be changed. That racism is the original sin that white people can never overcome. Of course, critical race theorists suggest "alternative institutions," but these "alternative institutions" are basically the same as the ones we have now, only less effective and actually racist.

Marx's violent revolution never happened. Or at least it never succeeded. Marx's followers have had to take a different approach. And now, we are living through the Revolution of Constant Whining.

This post is part of a series on critical race theory. Read the full series here.

Americans are losing faith in our justice system and the idea that legal consequences are applied equally — even to powerful elites in office.

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to detail what he believes will come next with the Durham investigation, which hopefully will provide answers to the Obama FBI's alleged attempts to sabotage former President Donald Trump and his campaign years ago.

Rep. Nunes and Glenn assert that we know Trump did NOT collude with Russia, and that several members of the FBI possibly committed huge abuses of power. So, when will we see justice?
