‘I Was Wrong’: Glenn Remembers When He Wasn’t Openly Pro-Life

Today, pro-life demonstrators are gathering in Washington, D.C. for the 45th annual March for Life. Glenn took the opportunity to share his journey from keeping quiet about abortion and pro-life issues to realizing that children’s lives are too precious for him not to speak up.

“Abortion is wrong,” Glenn spelled it out on today’s show. “It is evil. It is killing our children.”

Glenn also wanted to remind Americans that our country has an incredible history of valuing life. How can the same country that fought to stop Nazism and genocide allow hundreds of thousands of children to be killed each year?

GLENN: You know, I have something to confess today that I think is going to last through the eternities. Thank God for the sacrifice made for all of us. That there is forgiveness. Because this one is a big one.

For most of my life, really up until the last few years, abortion has been something that I have refused to talk about. I had always shied away from it. In fact, I know it was -- it was a third rail. We never would discuss it on radio.

I thought it was a discussion that, to my shame, I would tell you, there was no way to win, and it would not be a positive for my career. And, in fact, I would say things like I'm carrying enough water on other issues.

I can't take that one on too. I was wrong.

There was a time in my life, that I was confused on abortion. My position on abortion was wrong.

I was, you know, hey, everybody has to have the right to do -- and it came from a place of me not even thinking of it. I didn't want to think about it. I wanted to leave all the options on the table, just in case. And who am I to judge? And all of this bullcrap. But it all really boiled down to, I didn't want to think about it. And I didn't want to.

Abortion is wrong. It is evil. It is killing our children.

Let's not kill children. Seems like a really easy thing to do.

Today is the 45th anniversary of the march for life on Washington, DC. And I want to take a moment here just to thank and applaud all of the men, women, and children who braved the bitter cold every single January to stand up for the lives of the unborn.

You are the modern day abolitionists. You are heroes. You are the people that will be remembered as pioneers. You will be remembered in the history books.

Thank you for consistently reminding people like me, that abortion is a practice that is wildly out of character for our country.

We are a people who helped convict the Nazis of crimes against humanity, the Nuremberg trials. We passed the civil rights law. We have a deeply religious and moral foundation.

How is it we have allowed the murder of over 60 million babies since 1974? Hopefully one day soon, we're all going to be able to look back at our own barbarism and shudder in disbelief.

I fear the shame that will come with it. Today, I want to begin the show to ask you to pray that we are just one march closer to that realization.

Tulsi Gabbard Smashes LIES about Our Military & Conservatives | Ep 99

It's hard to put a label on former Democratic congresswoman and presidential candidate, Tulsi Gabbard. She has worked with Bernie Sanders but has also felt the fires of the Left and mainstream media for simply putting her love for this country above partisan politics. Lately, she has even sided with conservatives on issues from transgenderism to Big Tech censorship. But as much of the nation dives dangerously deep into partisan politics, Tulsi calls on Democrats to turn their talk of unity into action and joins Glenn to lead the way. Together, they ask who's defining "extremism," why are there still troops guarding the Capitol, and how long will we let our First Amendment be trampled on as Congress "bullies" conservative media outlets and the COVID-19 restrictions persist? And Tulsi shares her own experience in the military that shatters the far-left narrative that it's crawling with white supremacists.

CONTROL FREAKS: The Great Reset Overlords Who Will Ru(i)n Your Life

"All rich countries should move to 100% synthetic beef. You can get used to the taste difference," said holy anointed billionaire Bill Gates. Green activism has been around for decades. But what used to be wacky has now worked its way into the world's power structure. You must believe the science. You cannot question the science.

The Texas power failure provided America with a disturbing and deadly preview of the Great Reset. But Bill Gates, AOC, and other Democrats say this only proves we need to enforce MORE green policies.

On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn Beck reveals how deep the Great Reset tentacles reach into government and business to strangle freedom and their efforts to control every aspect of your private life.

Dr. Ben Carson's Prescription to Heal America | Ep 98

To the Left, "unity" means "destroy everyone we disagree with." But Dr. Ben Carson has another message: "We are not each other's enemies." As the Biden administration insists America is systemically racist, Dr. Carson's life proves just how far we've come. Despite facing poverty as a child, he became a renowned neurosurgeon, a candidate for president, and former secretary of Housing and Urban Development — one of the only Cabinet members to survive all four years of the Trump administration.

He joins Glenn to review his time in the administration, including as part of the White House's coronavirus task force, and how he discovered "the swamp is deeper and wider than I expected." But above all, he urges Americans to take courage and stand for our freedoms — and previews his newest venture to do just that as founder and chairman of the American Cornerstone Institute: "What version of America do we want?"

Unmasking the OTHER Deadly Pandemic: What's Killing Our Kids

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.
