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.

After imprisoning a pastor for refusing to follow COVID-19 restrictions, Canadian officials barricaded his church. And when some church members retaliated by tearing down part of the fence, Canadian Mounties arrived in riot gear.

Rebel News Founder Ezra Levant joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to give his insight on the crazy situation. He described the new, armed police presence surrounding GraceLife Church in Edmonton, Alberta, and how it not only encouraged hundreds of protesters to stand with the church in support but forced congregation members underground to worship as well.

What's happening is eerily similar to what occurs everyday in China, Levant says, and it must stop. Who would have thought this type of tyranny would be so close to home?

Watch the video below to hear Ezra describe the religious persecution taking place in Canada.

Enough prayers? Why is supposed Catholic Joe Biden suggesting that Congress ought to stop praying for after someone commits acts of gun violence?

On Friday, Stu Burguiere and Pat Gray filled in for Glenn and discussed President Joe Biden's remarks during his speech on gun control. "Enough prayers. Time for some action," Biden said. Stu and Pat were surprised how dismissive Biden appeared to be on the idea of prayer.

Just days after Canadian pastor James Coates was released from prison for refusing to bow to COVID-19 lockdown restrictions, several police officers showed up at another church to ensure restrictions were being followed. But Polish pastor Artur Pawlowski of the Cave of Adullam Church in Alberta, Canada, knew his rights, telling the cops not to come back until they had a warrant in hand.

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere played a video of the interaction.

"Please get out. Please get out of this property immediately. Get out!" Pawlowski can be heard yelling at the six officers who entered his church.

"Out! Out! Out! Get out of this property immediately until you come back with a warrant," he continued. "Go out and don't come back. I don't want to talk to you. You Nazis, Gestapo is not allowed here! ... Nazis are not welcome here! Do not come back you Nazi psychopaths. Unbelievable sick, evil people. Intimidating people in a church during the Passover! You Gestapo, Nazi, communist fascists! Don't you dare come back here!"

One of the most dangerous existential threats to the United States is Critical Race Theory, or CRT. As Glenn Beck has exposed over the past year, CRT is gaining momentum and has been preached in our universities for a while now.

Then last August, leaked documents revealed that Marxism, activist ideology of Black Lives Matter, is making its way into grade school classrooms across the country. And since then, things have only gotten more intense.

On next week's Wednesday night special, Glenn will expose the new ways progressives are systematically indoctrinating our kids and culture with this dangerous ideology. But first, it's crucial that you know what your kids may already be learning.

"What I'm about to show you is just the beginning," Glenn said, introducing the leaked documents.

"I found it shocking that Black Lives Matter supporters have developed lesson plans that start from preschool all the way up to the 12th grade," he continued. "Do you know the money it would take to tailor things ... and get it out to the schools and the unions for each age, to be able to brainwash the kids on Marxism and how to destroy capitalism by using race, sexual orientation, and gender?

"Our children don't stand a chance," Glenn added later. "They're not being taught anything except how to be radical activists. What the hell has happened?"
