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.


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.

POLL: Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

Just one day after Hamas’s surprise attack on Israel, which left over 1,400 people Israelis dead, 34 different student groups from Harvard University wrote a joint statement pinning the blame of Hamas' terrorist attack on Israel. In the following days after publishing this callous statement, these students staged a walkout and rallied in support of the Palestinians. As Glenn has discussed, this is not an isolated event, and campuses across the country have hosted similar rallies where antisemitic jargon like "we don't want no Jew state" and "globalize the intifada" is freely spewed.

Should Universities allow pro-Hamas protests?

While the Universities have not officially backed any of these rallies or student groups that organized them, they haven't stopped them either, which raises the question: should they? On one hand, these are American students in American Universities, who are protected by the First Amendment. On the other hand, history tells us how dangerous antisemitism is if left unchecked; and what of the rights of Jewish students to be safe on the campuses they pay to attend? Let us know what you think in the poll below:

POLL: What do YOU think Israel should do about Gaza?

Should Israel take over Gaza after defeating Hamas? This contentious historical question has resurfaced amid Israel's retaliatory airstrikes in Gaza following Hamas' terror attacks, which resulted in the greatest death of Jews since the Holocaust. Biden and the global elites have warned Israel against occupation of the Palestinian territory. When asked on 60 Minutes if he would support the Israeli occupation of Gaza, Biden said, “I think it would be a big mistake.” Today Glenn responded to Biden’s answer: “I don't think it's a mistake to occupy."

This has been a long-standing, polarizing issue that is now more relevant than ever, and we want to hear YOUR thoughts. Let us know in the poll below:

Would you support an Israeli occupation of Gaza?

Do you think the Israeli airstrikes in Gaza are justified?

Do you think a two-state solution is still possible?

Funding IRAN?! Here are the TOP 5 reasons Joe Biden should be IMPEACHED

On September 12th, the House announced an official impeachment inquiry into Joe Biden with allegations of abuse of power, obstruction, and corruption. Naturally, the media quickly jumped to the President’s aid claiming that “there is no evidence to support these claims” and that the whole affair is a witch hunt.

If you’ve been listening to Glenn, you know that this is simply not the case. Biden has been committing impeachment-worthy deeds before he even stepped foot into the Oval Office—there’s no shortage of evidence to justify this inquiry. Here are 5 scathing reasons why Biden should be impeached:

He was responsible for the Afghanistan withdrawal disaster.

The Biden administration began with the US's disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan. Under his watch, Biden left thousands of US citizens and allies stranded in the Taliban's hostile regime. Countless Afghan allies have been murdered by the Taliban due to the Biden administration's negligence.

He was involved with Hunter Biden's illicit foreign business dealings.

There is clear evidence that Joe Biden was more than aware of his son Hunter's foreign business dealings. From suspicious money laundering through the Biden family's accounts to Joe's involvement with important business meetings within Hunter's company, there is mounting evidence to warrant an impeachment inquiry.

He lied about his involvement with Hunter's business dealings.

Not only did Biden involve himself with his son's less-than-legal foreign business ventures, but he lied to the American people about it too, claiming he had NO KNOWLEDGE of what was going on.

He failed to protect the Southern border, and actively made it worse.

Biden singlehandedly turned the Southern border into the worst illegal immigration crisis in US history. He reversed many policies set in place by the Trump administration, resulting in 2.3 million illegal immigrants flooding into the US under his watch, a historic high.

Biden reversed the Trump-era policy that halted all funds going into Iran. The Wall Street Journal revealed the smoking-gun evidence proving that Iran trained AND funded Hamas before its gruesome terror attacks against Israel. Moreover, shortly before the attacks, the Biden administration unfroze $6 BILLION dollars of Iran's assets as a part of a prisoner swap. On top of this, Biden resumed $200 million worth of "humanitarian aid" to Gaza that Trump had ended—because the money was being used to buy weapons for Hamas.

From groceries to house prices, everything seems to get more expensive, and you can thank Biden for that. Glenn recently exposed the truth about 'Bidenomics' and the havoc it has wrought on the American economy. Here are five economic milestones during the Biden administration that expose the glaring track record of "Bidenomics:"

In July 2022, the inflation rate hit 9.1 percent, a 40-year record high.

In June 2022, gas hit an all time record high of $5 a gallon for the national average.

61 percent of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck as of this September.

Interest rates reached a 15-year high at 5.25 percent and are still increasing.

Americans have $1 trillion in collective credit card debt, in part due to food/staple pieces being very high.
