‘History Will Judge Us’: Glenn Calls for a ‘Decent Conversation’ on This Divisive Issue

What’s going on?

The Senate remained divided on the pro-life question on Monday, voting 51-46 against a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks. Democrats Joe Manchin, Joe Donnelly and Bob Casey split off from the party vote to support the ban, while Republicans Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski voted to block it.

Why 20 weeks?

Advocates have fought for the 20-week ban based on research indicating that babies can feel pain at that point in gestation, giving the bill its name: Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Glenn’s take:

“So does that mean that a baby that is 19 weeks and six days old – do they not feel pain?” Glenn asked.

In a hundred years, people will call us “monsters” and ask why we didn’t stand up against this evil.

“History will judge us,” Glenn said.

GLENN: At five months in the womb, babies have 10 fingers and 10 toes. They can yawn and stretch. They can also feel pain.

Despite this scientific fact, the Senate voted against the “Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act” which would ban late-term abortions on babies at 20 weeks.

46 out of 97 Senators decided they wanted to continue the debate on the bill rather than pass it.

It’s not a perfect bill by any measure. It still allows babies conceived by rape or incest to be aborted and it draws a hard line at 20 weeks.

Does that mean a 19 week and six-day-old baby conceived by rape doesn’t feel pain?

That baby absolutely feels pain.

And even if there was some point in the womb where babies don’t feel pain, does that mean it’s ok to kill them? Just because it doesn’t hurt, is it ok to take that life? No. Period. We shouldn’t be dismembering and sucking babies up with a vacuum. Abortion is and always will be a hideous and barbaric act no matter what gestation period it occurs or how that baby came to be.

As a society, we need to reject abortion wholly and completely. But this bill was a step in the right direction.

It showed a glimmer of hope that maybe we are beginning to realize the sheer horror and murder of abortion.

I have no doubt humanity will realize what an atrocity abortion has been.

And that realization will serve as a gruesome blemish on mankind’s history.

Let’s hope we open our eyes sooner rather than later.

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.
