While the Gates Foundation works to reduce Africa’s populations,
an expert suggests that money could be better spent in another way.
Bill and Melinda Gates recently reemphasized that their foundation does not fund abortion. But their web site points out that they have given $4 billion in 900 grants to International Planned Parenthood, United Nations Population Fund, Planned Parenthood of America and Marie Stokes International.
Dr. Brian Clowes of Human Life International tells OneNewsNow that all those groups promote and perform abortions.
“For them to say, ‘We don’t support abortion,’ is like somebody saying, ‘We don’t support racism,’ while they give billions of dollars to Aryan Nations and Ku Klux Klan,” Clowes remarks. “The Gates Foundation is doing more than any other foundation to push abortion all over the world. It’s definitely taken a pro-abortion position with $4 billion going to organizations that promote it.”
The U.S. has spent $102 billion on contraception and abortion in Africa and Latin America since 1995, without the added help of the Gates’ $4 billion.
“And if you took that $102 billion and put it into stuff like rural electrification, good schools, good roads, health care clinics and so on, you could have raised the standards of 25 million of the world’s poorest people to U.S. or European standards,” he explains. “That’s what’s called authentic economic development.”
Clowes says instead what has been accomplished is to “make large, poor families into small, poor families.”
