Gates Foundation Will Spend $1.4 Billion Pushing Population Control Worldwide

 Micaiah Bilger  |   Jul 5, 2021

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation plans to spend another $1.4 billion over the next five years to prevent families from having children.

The Gates’ philanthropy organization has been a huge supporter of contraception and abortion for decades, sending millions of dollars to pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood, the Population Council and MSI Reproductive Choices (formerly Marie Stopes International).

Last week, it announced plans to spend another $1.4 billion through 2026 on promoting family planning across the world, according to the Catholic News Agency.

“We know that when women control their bodies and their futures, they unlock a cycle of empowerment that reverberates for generations to come,” Melinda Gates said in a post on the foundation website.

The $1.4 billion will be spent to increase access to contraception and support “a network of family planning partners,” such as UNFPA Supplies Partnership, Family Planning 2030, the Global Financing Facility and the new Shaping Equitable Market Access (SEMA) Reproductive Health initiative.

The goal is “to advance women’s economic empowerment, strengthen women and girls’ health and family planning, and accelerate women’s leadership,” according to the foundation.

Though the announcement did not mention abortion specifically, its underlying message is anti-child, and many of the groups that the Gates Foundation donates to promote and provide abortions.

According to Newsbusters, the Gates Foundation gave at least $81 million to Planned Parenthood from about 2009 to 2018, according to financial records from the foundation’s website. Additionally, it gave $46.1 million to the British-based abortion chain Marie Stopes International in 2012. These two groups alone abort millions of unborn babies every year across the world.

An investigation by Live Action News found the Gates Foundation also donated nearly $68 million to DKT International, which sends abortion drugs and devices across the world. DKT International is an nonprofit, non-governmental organization (NGO) that brags of being “one of the world’s largest providers of family planning.” According to its annual reports, it sent 3.5 million abortion drug “kits” across the world in 2018 and 4.2 million in 2019.

Many of the richest people in the world donate to pro-abortion groups.

According to Capital Research Center, Warren Buffett’s Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation donated $4 billion to abortion advocacy groups between 2000 and 2018. The largest recipients include Planned Parenthood, Marie Stopes International and the National Abortion Federation.

George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, the David and Lucille Packard Foundation (run by the heirs of one of the founders of Hewlett Packard), and others have given many millions more. CNA recently reported the ex-wife of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos also recently donated a “significant multi-million dollar gift” to a pro-abortion progressive group.

An estimated 46.2 million unborn babies were aborted in the world in 2020, including nearly 1 million in the United States. These babies were unique, living human beings who deserved a right to life. So many babies, mothers and fathers could be saved from the pain and regret of abortion if only people like Gates, Buffett and Soros chose to use their money to help people. Instead, they are funding the largest killing industry in the world.

Chocolate companies Mars, Nestlé, and Hershey sued for child slavery

The well-known multinational chocolate companies Mars, Nestlé, and Hershey, among others, were sued in the United States by eight young people who as children were exploited as slaves on African cocoa plantations.

These young men represent the thousands of children who are recruited each year by trickery and deception, and then trafficked to cocoa farms in the Ivory Coast, The Guardian reported on Feb. 12. 

Child slavery in Africa

There they were forced to work for years without pay, without travel documents, and without knowing where they were or how to return home. 

One of them was only 11 years old when he was convinced in his hometown of Kouroussandougou, Mali, that he would be paid $47 a month, but after two years he was paid nothing, according to lawsuit documents. 

As part of his work, he often had to apply toxic pesticides and herbicides, without protective clothing or equipment.

Another plaintiff had scars on his hands and arms from machete accidents. They also had to endure constant insect bites.

Alone, fed little, and long work days

They stated that they were fed little and worked long hours. They were left alone or with children who spoke different dialects.

Among other charges, it is argued that what the children endured is morally repugnant, and that they suffer a “humanitarian catastrophe,” which generates “long-term mental and physical trauma,” according to The Guardian. 

The lawsuit was filed in Washington D.C. by the human rights firm International Rights Advocates (IRA), a first in the United States.

Research from the Department of State, the International Labor Organization, and UNICEF is cited in support of their claims for compensation.

The problem of the enslavement of children in Africa has been denounced for decades, and although the large companies linked to the chocolate industry make promises to combat it, it seems that in practice there is little change. 

Through the Harkin-Engel voluntary protocol, the companies promised to have it solved by 2005, which they failed to do. Now the World Cocoa Foundation, with which the defendants are associated, has moved the date to 2025.

Some 1.56 million children, many as young as 5 years old, are forced to harvest chocolate in the Ivory Coast and Ghana. These countries supply nearly 70% of global consumption, Fortune reported in October 2020. 

The Gates Foundation has at least $32 million invested in the chocolate company Mondelēz, which has been criticized for its use of child labor, according to The Nation.

The investments are made through the Berkshire Hathaway company, in which they own a stake of $11.5 billion.

Additionally, the Gates Foundation donated $32.5 million to the World Cocoa Foundation, an industrial group to which Mondelēz belongs, to improve the lives of farmers, without including measures against child labor.
