‘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.

THE GLENN BECK PODCAST

EcoHealth Alliance's Peter Daszak: Hero or Villain? | Matt Ridley | Ep 126

Like most people, science journalist Matt Ridley just wants the truth. When it comes to the origin of COVID-19, that is a tall order. Was it human-made? Did it leak from a laboratory? What is the role of gain-of-function research? Why China, why now? Ridley's latest book, "Viral: The Search for the Origin of COVID-19," is a scientific quest to answer these questions and more. A year ago, you would have been kicked off Facebook for suggesting COVID originated in a lab. For most of the pandemic, the Left practically worshipped Anthony Fauci. But lately, people have been poking around. And one of the names that appears again and again is Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance and a longtime collaborator and funder of the virus-hunting work at Wuhan Institute of Virology. In this episode of the Glenn Beck Podcast, Matt reveals the whole tangled web.

Crimes or Cover-Up? Exposing the World’s Most Dangerous Lie

COVID-19 changed everything. The way we live our lives, how we operate our businesses, how we see each other. And now, the federal government is sinking its tendrils even deeper, threatening the fabric not only of our bodily autonomy, but of the republic.

Our American way of life may never be the same. To save it, we must understand the key fundamentals of the pandemic that transfigured our society into the nightmare it is today. What is the COVID-19 origin story? Who are its top players in government and science, pulling the strings? What was their REAL response in the first days of the pandemic? The answers to these questions are frightening.

Emails, documents, and federal contracts tell a dark story that is still dominating our lives. It's time to cast a light on the shocking truth. Because only with the truth can we emerge from the darkness of this "pandemic" and take back the liberty stolen from us.

This is Glenn Beck's most important chalkboard of his life. And the most pivotal time in yours.
