Buffetting for Abortion

Billionaire Warren Buffett recently announced plans to donate the bulk of his fortune to charity-particularly the William and Melinda Gates Foundation. Unfortunately, the Gates Foundation is a major supporter of Planned Parenthood and abortion worldwide, so Mr. Buffett`s billions will be used to advance a pro-abortion agenda.

According to Life News:

The donation causes huge concerns for pro-life advocates as the Gates Foundation has given the Planned Parenthood Federation of America abortion business almost $12.5 million since 1998, including funds to persuade teenagers to support abortion and to lobby the United Nations to advance pro-abortion proposals.

The Gates foundation has also given nearly $21 million to the International Planned Parenthood abortion business over the last seven years. The funds have gone to promote abortions in third-world nations and to set up pro-abortion family planning centers in South America, Africa and eastern European nations.

Bill Gates and his wife have also spent millions promoting abortion closer to home.

Their foundation has given nearly $2 million to Planned Parenthood of Central Washington and Planned Parenthood of Western Washington to fund abortion centers. The Gates Foundation also gave the Planned Parenthood Federation of Canada more than $1.3 million to promote abortions there.

"The tragedy of Bill Gates' support of abortion and population control is that technology leads to development," says Steven Mosher, President of the Population Research Institute.

"Unfortunately, the developing world will grow old before it develops because of population control. Gates, in supporting population control, is out of step with other great minds who have viewed people as humanity's greatest resource," Mosher said.
