For some unimaginable reason, National Public Radio (NPR) thought it would be a good idea to broadcast an absolutely horrific audio recording of a woman getting an abortion — just a few days before a major election. Instead of scoring points for the pro-choice Democratic Party, NPR may have accidentally aired nationwide one of the strongest pro-life advertisements ever made.
"NPR aired an abortion. I think they thought this was going to help people go, 'Oh, is that it? It's safe and effective,'" Glenn Beck said on the radio program. "I'm not sure it's going to have the desired result."
Instead of making the reality of abortion less disturbing, NPR's recording of a woman in her 11th week of pregnancy crying and moaning while a vacuum machine whirs is more likely to haunt the dreams of pro-choicers everywhere.
NPR reporter Kate Wells attempted to gloss over the horrors with soft narration about the "soothing music" and "women guiding other women,” before the suction sound shuts off and exclamations of “You did good, you did great" by the staff can be heard.
"They think airing that abortion on NPR a few days before an election will be helpful — that's how far we have fallen," Glenn commented.
Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burgiere went on to discuss NPR's shocking broadcast and how only a few years ago, just the thought of airing an abortion was reprehensible.
