Billions ... of lives in jeopardy

June 27, 2006 09:00 AM

Hearing the news that Warren Buffett pledges billions to Bill Gates foundation sent shivers down my spine. All the information we have collected over the years points to a total commitment by both Buffett and Gates to population stabilization through health care programs that include birth control and abortion "services." The record shows, for example, that Gates has already supported pro-death organizations such as the International Planned Parenthood Federation.

When I ask myself what Gates means by "global health," it doesn't take too much to answer my own question. A visit to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation web site shows a commitment to helping women "avoid unprotected sex." Catholic Melinda Gates suggests that these women insist that their partner wear a condom.

We fear for the babies who will die because of this new infusion of funding that goes to a foundation that has never made it clear that abortion and birth control were not part of their overall health strategy for the poor. In fact, quite the opposite is the case.

If you are reading this and want to encourage the Gates Foundation to alter its policy and clarify its intentions regarding the health and well-being of the preborn children of the world, please contact:
