John Smith, Howard, Ashton Kutcher discussed on Glenn Beck



Fog and thirty four degrees. Cayenne. You know, I have to play Ashton Kutcher and his response on on pro-life being pro-life. I haven't heard this yet. But this was probably the biggest video in America yesterday when it comes to politics here's Ashton Kutcher, though, you don't have it. Oh, I thought he sent it in earlier today. Well, saving get it. Because I wanna I wanna play at once before we before we leave. So maybe we can do that at the the end of the hour. Got a lot of stuff because Monday, we're doing a show on abortions. So I have a lot of stuff on colonial American abortions wishes only interesting to really people like you. And I'm I'm intrigued by that. Because kind of what we what we designate is is a moral and immoral what we designate is legal and illegal those change over time. And I'm curious to what a colonial Americans thought, colonial Americans thought that. Colonial Americans thought that abortion after what was called the quickening, which is in the was it the Highlander all the immortals come to know. Eighteen term abortion rally. Terrible. Yeah. No. That's not it. The quickening is when you can feel the baby moving south woman. But it was interesting. The first abortion trial happened under John Smith, remember, John Smith and Pocahontas. So the first one happened with John Smith, and he had to decide the innocence or guilt of this individual. And it was let me see if I can find it. The deposition came from dorks Howard. Oh, poor dorks Howard. I already feel really whoever this person is I feel sorry for I don't imagine that an easy childhood. Yeah. No, it was a woman to orcas. You're like, oh, you guys doing just go with Susan Susan's a finance dorks. So anyway, she was an unmarried servant and the thing I've found in the research yesterday was that most of the women that had abortions not all but most of the women who had abortions were servants in the house. They were white, but they were servants in the house, and because, you know, not slave servants. But what do you call injured servants? So they would get together and miss Howard was an unmarried servant, and she was arrested after she gave birth in secret to a son, and what she did was really quite horrible to this to this kid. But the people that went to jail, according to John Smith's decision was not only for her. But the guy who fathered the child also went to jail, and then there's a there's a few things one one woman was executed because she killed her her child. The most of them really happened when it was a man raping or or taking a servant in having his way. And then they couldn't get married, but it was interesting to me was a lot of them went to trial, and they were both punished for whatever. And then they ended up marrying each other. The crisis. Brought them together. Emotionally, this has been tough toward the scarlet letters. I I really got to know you a lot better Gorkhas. Let's get hitched. I don't know. But what was interesting to me? Also was that? It wasn't just on the women. You think oh, well, it was just the women. No. A lot of times the women. Now, remember, we're talking sixteen hundreds the women were whipped. And the men were whipped for adultery. But it was the man who ended up serving the time or getting the punishment for the abortion. So so would they was it. Permissible to get an abortion. If it was out of wedlock. Is that what I'm getting? Or is they were trying to do it in the colonials would go. You can't do that. You can't do that care if you're married or not married show can't kill your child. And so that's that's that's where they were. And it looks like I mean, maybe we can maybe we can just go back to I have a I have a warrant for the arrest of a woman named Anna Trask Pratt ski Trotsky trots Trasco. I think I can't remember her last name. But a woman she was in Salem, and she was part of the Salem witch trials, and she was a witch because she became pregnant without the help of a man. That was her. I'm gonna get in trouble for this. What I'm going to clamp? I'll just say a witch. No, one will think of a hussy is crazy. Yeah. Backfires that had that started. Yeah. Well, I mean, we all know, that's how all babies without a husband witchcraft I used to live in Scotland. And there's if you go to the castle esplanade, there's this placard that it's dedicated to which is that were burned because the Scots miniature golf for TV or anything, so they need hobbies. So they burn witches. Right. And there's this says, you know, many of the women that were burned here were not bad witches, but good witches. Like, none of them were witches. What's wrong with you? Witches? Eighteen eighty they put him in charge of this. They were they were they would the Scots would they if you're a witch? They would three on trial by the throw you into nor Loch which was the the septic drainage ditch next to the castle. And if you sank which was unlikely with the way sewage works that meant you were fine and they'd right unapologetic. Literature your family, if you if you didn't sank because of you know, we're point that met the devil was underneath you holding you up which point they burn you the steak, and this is the nasty part. This is the Scottish bit. They would charge your family for the firewood Bill just to like really stick it to you. Yes. Where the were how did you? I mean is it a? Is it a chance you were raised a witch? I'm in his family fully possible. Yeah. I could see now I think I'm I'm descended pretty much entirely from rodeo clowns and rodeo, clowns and horse thieves. I don't think any witchcraft in the family. I know I didn't mean to you personally. I didn't know I mean because as we learned from the documentary in the nineteen sixties bewitched. Yeah. Iran's in the family. That's true. So could be talking with my mom on that. I think we're okay there. Yeah. They they all sorts of weird witchcraft thing and in history that were and it seems to be a recurring thing. Like, there seems to be an instinct for human beings to go which in England, I learned this recently, witchcraft was not considered necessarily satanic up until maybe seventeen hundred. So if you go back to if you're time traveling and you go back to fourteen eighty England like there's which craft, but it's almost seen as like a kind of like, the the evil eye where it's almost like a magical skill you possess, but it's not necessarily with the dark arts. So I almost bought this piece in this. The one thing I regret that. I was offered in a history. Eric piece that I didn't buy it was too expensive at the time. And now, I I I do anything to get it. It was a bowl a magic bowl that the Jewish society back in the times of Jesus would put at they turn it over and they put it underneath their doorstep. If they believed in sorcery and things like that. And on this was written about the sorcerer.
