‘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.

FAKE OUTRAGE?: CNN’s Brooke Baldwin condemns Trump’s response to McCain’s death, ‘It’s despicable’

Filling in for Glenn Beck on Tuesday's episode of "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Pat Gray, Stu Burguiere, and Jeff Fisher discussed the hypocrisy of fake liberal outrage, in particular over President Donald Trump's lack of praise for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) after his death on Saturday.

CNN's Brooke Baldwin, who, according to Pat, is no real fan of McCain, appeared to be incensed that President Trump didn't say "anything" about the late senator. She referred to McCain as a "hero" and a "lion of a man."
