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.

RELATED: Planned Parenthood Once Told the Truth 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.

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.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
