Pro-Life Conservative Radio Host Rush Limbaugh Dies at age 70

After a long-fought battle with lung cancer, pro-life conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh died Wednesday at age 70.

In February of last year, Limbaugh announced that he had been diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. During his State of the Union address shortly afterward, President Donald Trump awarded Limbaugh with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Limbaugh continued to host his radio show while having treatments. After a few months passed, he told listeners that his diagnosis was terminal.

At the end of 2020, he told listeners, “I wasn’t expected to be alive today,” he said. “I wasn’t expected to make it to October, and then to November, and then to December. And yet, here I am, and today, got some problems, but I’m feeling pretty good today.”

Limbaugh openly opposed abortion and Planned Parenthood. He criticized the abortion business and the cultural shifts caused by abortion heavily, especially after the Center for Medical Progress released undercover videos detailing Planned Parenthood's sale of aborted baby body parts.

In another show two years earlier, however, he detailed the "cultural rot and decay" caused by the rise of abortion.

I just want to tell you something. I really think that abortion is at the root — you could do a flowchart — I think abortion is at the root of so much that has and is going wrong in this country. I think that the number of abortions themselves, but what in toto it all means, culturally, in terms of the sanctity of life, how that’s crumbled, I think it’s almost at the root of everything. And if it’s not at the root of everything, it’s clearly had a profound impact on our culture, our society, and our politics, I think in ways that people don’t even stop to consider.

None of it good and it’s caused all kinds of horrible problems that nobody knows how to fix. Because they refuse to even accept that abortion is more than what it is. To most people, it’s just a woman’s right to choose, and it’s nobody’s business, and leave it alone and I don’t want to talk about it.

But it’s really had much more impact on this country than just that. It’s had impact on crime. It’s had a profound impact on our politics. It is at the root of our cultural rot and decay.
