Melinda Gates will dedicate another huge chunk of money to population control and abortion across the world.
This week, Gates said her family’s foundation will increase donations by 60 percent to global family planning, according to Marie Claire. That amounts to an additional $375 million in the next four years, with about two-thirds of that specifically allocated for teen programs.
Gates said the funding will go to contraception and sex education; but the money also will indirectly fund abortions, too. The billionaire family already gives money to some of the largest abortion chains in the world, including Planned Parenthood and Marie Stopes International.
“This is a difficult political climate for family planning,” Gates said at The Global Family Planning Summit this week in London. “I’m deeply troubled, as I’m sure you are, by the Trump administration’s proposed budget cuts.”
One focus of the summit was the Mexico City Policy, which President Donald Trump reinstated in January. The policy prohibits United States taxpayer dollars from funding international groups that provide or promote abortions. The order ensures U.S. foreign aid will continue to go to health care and humanitarian relief in the millions of dollars. It just will not subsidize abortion overseas.
