In the 1950s, Planned Parenthood Called Abortion Killing

When Roe v. Wade passed, legalizing abortion in America, the procedure was supposed to be rare and used only in extreme cases. Today, many modern women view it as a form of birth control --- and there's no bigger enabler than Planned Parenthood. Twenty years before the Supreme Court ruled in favor of abortion, Planned Parenthood had a much different message about abortion.

A 1952 pamphlet from Planned Parenthood Federation of America revealed the true nature of abortion.

"'Is abortion birth control?' Here's the answer from Planned Parenthood: 'Definitely not. An abortion requires an operation . . . it kills the life of a baby, after it has begun,'" Glenn read Wednesday on radio.

Listen to this segment from The Glenn Beck Program:

GLENN: The story on Planned Parenthood. Maybe I have it printed too. Story on Planned Parenthood is truly amazing because Planned Parenthood, they won't admit that their own children, after they're born, are children. Here it is. Here it is. I have it.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: Okay? So they won't admit that their own children are children.

PAT: Uh-huh. Uh-huh.

GLENN: Earlier this week, the Founder of President of Culture for Life in Africa uncovered a 1952 pamphlet from Planned Parenthood Federation of America that reveals the abortion provider hasn't always been so deceptive about the nature of abortion and the risks involved with terminating pregnancy. This is from the Resurgent.

In the pamphlet, the topic of birth control is discussed in a question-and-answer format. After defining birth control as a safe and simple way to plan for your children and to have them when you want them, the question is asked, "Is birth control -- is abortion birth control?"

Here's the answer from Planned Parenthood: Definitely not. An abortion requires an operation. Quoting, it kills the life of a baby, after it has begun. It is dangerous to your life and health. It may make you sterile.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: So when you want children, you cannot have them. Birth control merely postpones the beginning of life. Abortion kills life.

Hmm.

PAT: Wow.

GLENN: Is that a problem for anyone? Now --

PAT: It doesn't even seem to be a problem for Planned Parenthood. And it's their pamphlet, showing the contradiction between they once thought and now.

GLENN: There is such a disconnect in what -- where we are headed.

For instance, look at the -- look at the uterine bag that is being developed by scientists to keep premature babies alive.

Well, once it's viable, one place it's viable, you're not supposed to be able to kill it. But as long as it's not viable -- well, we're going to get to the point where that egg, once fertilized -- and that egg even not fertilized can be fertilized in the lab and the baby grown from start to finish, most likely in a bag.

When we get there, is it life?

STU: Right. Because, I mean, science continually moves this line up. Roe vs. Wade tried to make a line of viability. And science has improved upon it already.

GLENN: Our Founders -- our Founders all wrote about abortion. There are many documents about abortion and how abortion is wrong and illegal and you go to jail after the quickening. Well, what's the quickening? The quickening is that moment when you know that there's life in you. You didn't necessarily know that there was life until the baby moved. As soon as the baby moves, that's when our Founders said, well, that's when you know it's a baby. So anybody that harms that baby in any way, that baby's life is protected from the moment of the quickening. Well, we know now a lot earlier. And we can save the baby a lot earlier.

We're now advocating for murder of children, according to their own -- their own pamphlet, it kills the life of the baby after it has begun. It kills the life of the baby after it has begun.

Now, tell me in 1956, they'll say, "Well, that was an old pamphlet." Have we discovered that that tissue is not a baby?

STU: No.

GLENN: Have we -- have we developed things that show that that -- that 15-week-old thing inside of you is not a baby? No, we found just the opposite.

PAT: We found the opposite, yeah.

From food and job shortages to the prices of building materials "skyrocketing," the world is currently moving into what could be the "perfect storm" for politicians to push for a universal basic income, explained Glenn Beck on the radio program.

"We really need to look at the economy and be prepared for what is coming," Glenn said. "I feel like my job is to warn you of the things that are coming and, when I can, give you ways to navigate around. But at least so you can hear the warning and decide yourself what you're going to do with that."

Glenn explained that now, for the first time, there is a shortage of starter homes and building supplies just as increasing numbers of millennials are in the market. Also, analysts are predicting that shortages of food items and products such as pork, polystyrene, and chlorine could send prices soaring. Then there's the matter of unemployment, kicked off by the COVID-19 pandemic and likely to worsen because of the technological revolution, there are going to be fewer and fewer jobs for people to do.

"We are creating this perfect storm, right now, where universal basic income is going to be embraced by people," Glenn warned. "It's just this nasty cycle that we're beginning, and we're watching it unfold right in front of us."

More than 100 business leaders and CEOs from some of the world's largest corporations recently met during a Zoom meeting to discuss how they can band together to fight "election integrity laws," like the voting law recently passed in Georgia.

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck explained how this government-corporation partnership is not only proof of fascism, but it is also demonstrative of how our lives will be under The Great Reset: government and large corporations will work together to set the rules, and the freedoms of the individual American will be squashed.

"I want you to understand ... everything that they have ever said about, 'oh, it's a conspiracy theory' about The Great Reset, you can throw that in the garbage now," Glenn began. "Something happened this weekend that is absolutely unprecedented. I have done this job, for ... I don't even know how many years, almost 50 years, and I've never seen anything like this.

"People that were on the [Zoom] call, they talked about potential ways to show how they opposed the legislation, including ... delaying investments in states. That's blackmail," Glenn continued.

"So these corporations, they're going to act as a — what? A secondary government? ... I don't know. I didn't elect the CEO of Merck. Did you?" he said.

"Corporations [are] openly meeting and coordinating efforts to change laws," Glenn added. "This is fascism, guys! Fascism is when government and corporations work hand in hand. That is fascism."

A virus has escaped the university labs and is super-spreading through our culture. It's called Critical Race THEORY and what used to be a fringe topic in the academic world is now a dangerous Marxist REALITY infecting our public schools where students are taught the U.S. is a "parasitic system" based on the "invasion" of "white male settlers."

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how some teachers are being instructed to "cash in on kids' inherent empathy" in order to train them to become "activist intellectuals," starting as early as first grade.

CRT is an absolute toxin to America and Glenn warns that in just one generation the Constitution, freedom, and true equality will be totally destroyed. Yet, any opposition to the spread of this disease is shouted down as racism and bigotry. If Critical Race Theory is not already in your local school curriculum, it will be soon.

Joined by Asra Nomani, Vice President for Strategy and Investigations at Parents Defending Education, Glenn arms you with the facts about CRT so you can stand up to this tyranny in your community.

Ezra Levant, founder of Rebel News, joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to describe the shocking footage he and his team captured of Canadian police harassing and even arresting Rebel News reporters during a protest in Montreal.

Video clips show officers making remarks about the "Jew" reporters and calling Rebel News "Jew media." Reporters are pulled out of crowds, handcuffed, slammed against vehicles and arrested. Some have been fined "thousands and thousands" of dollars "because they had cameras pointed at the police," said Levant.

Another video clip shows Canadian police demanding entrance to a rented Airbnb houseboat without a warrant.

"They the claimed it was an illegal gathering. It was just a B and B," Levant explained. "I told them to get a warrant. I went out there ... and they wouldn't let me back in.... It turned into a ten-hour standoff. They couldn't find a judge willing to give them a search warrant, so to punish us, they called the whole thing a crime scene. They actually wouldn't let any of my team off the boat unless they submitted to a personal search, which is illegal. And the craziest part, is that they arrested one of my guys, took him to jail, and they said this to us: We will hold him in jail until you let us search the Airbnb without a warrant."

Levant said nearly all Canadian media have ignored the insane attacks, warrantless searches and seizures, and the jailing of journalists, and warned Americans to take note and protect our First Amendment rights.

"If you do not protect your First Amendment, if you do not hold those hard-won freedoms, you will be like what we are," he said. "This is your future if you don't protect your First Amendment."
