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.

Time after time, Americans have taken to the streets to defend our constitutional rights, whether it was our livelihood at stake -- or our lives. But, what was the point of all the civil rights movements that came before, if we're about to let the government take our rights away now?

On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck argued that Americans are tired of having our rights trampled by "tyrannical" leaders from state and local governments who are ignoring our unalienable rights during this pandemic.

"Our nanny state has gone too far. The men and women in office -- the ones closest to our communities, our towns, our cities -- are now taking advantage of our fear," Glenn said. "Like our brothers and sisters of the past, we need to start making the decisions that will put our destiny, and our children's destiny, back into our hands."

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable, but some Americans are fighting back, risking losing their jobs and businesses or even jail time, as they battle to take back our civil rights.

Here are just a few of their stories:

After New Jersey's Atilis Gym reopened in defiance of the governor's executive order, the Department of Health shut them down for "posing a threat to the public health." Co-owner Ian Smith says somebody sabotaged the gym's toilets with enire rolls of paper to create the public health "threat."

Oregon Salon owner, Lindsey Graham, was fined $14 thousand for reopening. She said she was visited by numerous government organizations, including Child Protective Services, in what she believes are bullying tactics straight from the governor's office.

77-year-old Michigan barber, Karl Manke, refused to close his shop even when facing arrest. "I couldn't go another 30 days without an income," he said. But when local police refused to arrest him, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's (D) office suspending his business license instead.

Port of Seattle police officer Greg Anderson was suspended after he spoke out against enforcing what he called "tyrannical orders" imposed amid coronavirus lockdowns.

Kentucky mother-of-seven, Mary Sabbatino, found herself under investigation for alleged child abuse after breaking social distancing rules at a bank. After a social worker from child protective services determined there was no sign of abuse, he still sought to investigate why the Sabbatino's are homeschooling, and how they can give "adequate attention to that many children."

Dallas salon owner Shelley Luther was sentenced to seven days in jail after she defied the state-mandated stay-at-home orders to reopen her business.

It took less than two months of the coronavirus tyranny to make America unrecognizable. Leaders from state and local governments across the U.S. have flattened the curve of some of our most basic constitutional rights, but some Americans are fighting back — and risking jail time or losing their businesses.

On Wednesday night's GBTV special, Glenn Beck argued that we're witnessing the birth of a new civil rights movement — and it's time to build a coalition of common sense to keep America as we know it free.

On the radio program Thursday, Glenn Beck sat down with chief researcher Jason Buttrill to go over two bombshell developments that have recently come to light regarding former Vice President Joe Biden's role in the 2016 dismissal of Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin.

"Wow! Two huge stories dropped within about 24 hours of each other," Jason began. He went on to explain that a court ruling in Ukraine has just prompted an "actual criminal investigation against Joe Biden in Ukraine."

This stunning development coincided with the release of leaked phone conversations, which took place in late 2015 and early 2016, allegedly among then-Vice President Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry, and Ukraine's former President Petro Poroshenko.

One of the audiotapes seems to confirm allegations of a quid pro quo between Biden and Poroshenko, with the later admitting that he asked Shokin to resign despite having no evidence of him "doing anything wrong" in exchange for a $1 billion loan guarantee.

"Poroshenko said, 'despite the fact that we didn't have any corruption charges on [Shokin], and we don't have any information about him doing something wrong, I asked him to resign,'" Jason explained. "But none of the Western media is pointing this out."

A recently declassified email, written by former National Security Adviser Susan Rice and sent herself on the day of President Donald Trump's inauguration, reveals the players involved in the origins of the Trump-Russia probe and "unmasking" of then-incoming National Security Adviser, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Rice's email details a meeting in the Oval Office on Jan 5, 2017, which included herself, former FBI Director James Comey, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, former Vice President Joe Biden, and former President Barack Obama. Acting Director of National Intelligence, Richard Grenell, fully declassified the email recently amid President Trump's repeated references to "Obamagate" and claims that Obama "used his last weeks in office to target incoming officials and sabotage the new administration."

On Glenn Beck's Wednesday night special, Glenn broke down the details of Rice's email and discussed what they reveal about the Obama administration officials involved in the Russia investigation's origins.
