80 Percent of People Think Abortion at 20 Weeks Is a Bad Idea

Ultrasounds are proving to be one of the most effective tools to fight abortion. The powerful images show expectant mothers exactly what's inside that might be destroyed. And a new technology that shows video is especially astounding.

"You're going to have pictures that make them look just as adorable as they do once they're born. And once that starts happening within it's going to become less and less and less popular, and you're going to be able to restrict abortions to earlier and earlier and earlier," Co-host Stu Burguiere said Friday on The Glenn Beck Program.

A solid 80 precent of people think abortion at 20 weeks is a bad idea. In fact, the majority of Americans want more restrictions on mid- and late-term abortions.

"What's going to defeat it, I think, is going to be technology. It's not going to be people making arguments in the senate. It's going to be people who are crushed by what they think they might have done before seeing videos like this," Stu said.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

STU: Using powerful new technology, an international team of doctors and scientists have managed to capture amazingly clear video of a 20-year-old -- 20-year-old baby in the womb would be weird. 20 week old --

PAT: Very uncomfortable for the mother.

STU: Seriously.

PAT: Very uncomfortable.

STU: That is -- I mean, I don't know how you would get a seat belt.

PAT: I have a 6'3" thing inside of me. And.

[Laughter]

I really have a backache right now.

STU: Especially if she's, like, 5'2". I feel like it's really difficult. But 20 week old baby in the womb. So this is new footage. And the footage is pretty incredible. Incredibly detailed. And the fetus can be seen fiddling with its umbilical cord, turning its head from side to side, and stretching. The system used to capture the video is created by a group called I find using a grant of around $13 million from the well trust and science research Counsel, which I know, Pat, you're a big follower of.

PAT: Oh, yeah.

STU: You have a bumper sticker on your car.

PAT: How much I love them.

STU: The automated ultra sound technique, which can cause traditional ultra sound scans to be inconclusive. You're going to have pictures that make them look just as adorable as they do once they're born. And once that starts happening within it's going to become less and less and less popular, and you're going to be able to restrict abortions to earlier and earlier and earlier. There was a time where it wasn't even thought of 20 weeks. Now you're talking about 80 percent of people think abortion at 20 weeks is a bad idea. 80 percent. This is not a 50/50 issue when you talk about the lines that are being fought upon when it comes to what restrictions should be applied. Almost everyone wants more restrictions than we currently have. Europe has more restrictions than we currently have.

This is not -- there's no -- it's a bizarre thing that the left continues to go on television and say I don't know nine seconds before birth you can still abort kids. They're still at that position, and they're going to hold onto it as long as it being. But what's going to defeat it, I think, is going to be technology. It's not going to be people making arguments in the senate. It's going to be people who are crushed by what they think they might have done before seeing videos like this.

PAT: Yeah, because already with the ultrasounds.

JEFFY: Yeah.

PAT: You show a mother who is contemplating abortion an ultra sound, and you have to do this in Texas now. 90 -- over 90 percent of them choose not to have the abortion. Just based on the technology we already have. And that's a lot more clear and a lot more precise showing what's inside the womb. You're right. I think it's going to become much more rare.

STU: And the new one, it's still black and white. Eventually you're going to get to a point where you're going to be able to see. You're going to be able to see the face, you're going to be able to see --

PAT: The baby holding the hi, mom sign.

STU: The baby trying to text mom. The baby playing Angry Birds. There's a lot of --

PAT: A lot of stuff. But soon we will.

STU: It's hard to look at that. We just showed the video here on blaze TV if you're not watching. And the video, it looks like it's did doing things that babies do. It's not a fetus. It's not a broccoli, it's not a Volkswagen. It's a baby. You can tell it's a baby. It's doing baby things. And this is the point where we're having discussion about. 20 weeks. Five months isn't enough for you to make this decision? And every time someone says 20 weeks, you have, oh, wow. I can't believe they're trying to take women's rights away. This is nuts. This is a being that has rights.

PAT: Yeah.

JEFFY: Oh, yeah.

STU: How do you not look at it like that and not understand it?

PAT: That's not even a consideration to the left.

STU: I do think this is a winnable battle, though. This is something over time. It might take a couple centuries, honestly.

PAT: As far as they have because we seeded the battle to them. We're, like, yeah, okay. We won't talk about this anymore.

STU: It makes me uncomfortable.

PAT: Yes, and I don't want to be uncomfortable, and I don't want you to be uncomfortable, and we're just going to get angry at each other, so we won't talk about it. We're not there anymore. I'm not there anymore.

STU: No, not at all.

There's been a lot of talk about the idea of a (peaceful) "national divorce" as the Left continues to abandon everything that made America what it is. Well, this week's guest on "The Glenn Beck Podcast" is all for that divorce. Michael Malice is the author of "The Anarchist Handbook" and host of the podcast "Your Welcome." He joined Glenn to talk about how an anarchist would peacefully take on America's greatest challenges — with a smile.

"My rights are not up for discussion," Malice told Glenn. He explained why his version of America will save America, and why, in spite of anxious talk of "national divorce," he has so much hope for the future.

There are new curriculum standards being implemented into schools throughout the nation for health classes that not only go far beyond what's appropriate for young children, but are entrenched in clear political biases, too. Under the standards, third-graders are taught about hormone blockers and endless gender identities, and topics get shockingly graphic for kids as young as 11. Some schools are even teaching their teachers and kids to ignore what parents have to say about these topics. And the worst part may be that many parents are completely unaware what their children are being taught.

Tina Descovich, co-founder of Moms for Liberty, joined "The Glenn Beck Program" to explain exactly what you can ask at your next school board meeting to ensure this "horrifying" curriculum isn't being taught in your kid's school.

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.
