Bill and Melinda--The Modern Margaret Sanger Rising

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $1.4 billion to prevent families from having babies.

Despite the differences and difficulties in their failed marriage, they are in agreement in pushing population control worldwide.

As eugenics advocate and Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger has become a political liability for her pro-abortion friends on the left, a new star is rising.

Be informed, not misled.

The Gates' philanthropy organization has been 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 over the next 5 years on various methods of population control. Melinda Gates said, "We know that when women control their bodies and their futures, they unlock a cycle of empowerment that reverberates for generations to come."

The Gates Foundation has long been a huge supporter of groups supporting various methods of population control, i.e., birth control, abortion, etc.

But the $1.4 billion takes their efforts to a new level.

Margaret Sanger could have only dreamed of that kind of money flowing to her efforts in eugenics. 

About Margaret Sanger.

I've talked about the legacy of Sanger on our daily radio program, and have written about it here in this "Faith and Freedom Daily" column. There is no question she was a disciple of eugenics---and would become a leading advocate of it. And she was a racist.

Last summer Kristan Hawkins, the president of Students for Life, wrote an op-ed for USA Today.

Hawkins reviewed all the "unhealthy" statues that were being removed from public view last summer, then suggested that "Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, should also be removed as the street name in front of the Planned Parenthood offices in New York City."

She said Sanger, in promoting birth control, had advanced a controversial "Negro Project," even writing about it in her autobiography.

In the bio, Sanger spoke about speaking to a Klu Klux Klan group and advocated for a eugenics approach to breeding for "those human weeds which threaten the blooming of the finest flowers of American civilization."

In a 1939 letter to Dr. C.J. Gamble, Sanger urged him to get over his reluctance to hire "a full time Negro physician" as the colored..."can get closer to their own members and more or less lay their cards on the table which means their ignorance, superstitions and doubt."

Like the abortion lobby today, Sanger urged Dr. Gamble to enlist the help of spiritual leaders to justify their deadly work, writing, "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members."

The vast majority of the abortion vendors have set up shop in minority neighborhoods which can be seen in the scarce statistics available at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

One stat is known, and that is only 13% of the female population is African American, but 38% of all abortions are performed on African American women.

In New York City, more black babies are aborted than born alive each year. Even Guttmacher Institute, the abortion industry's own think tank, admits that "the abortion rate for black women is almost 5 times that of white women."

Last summer, Planned Parenthood of Greater New York finally agreed to removed Sanger's name from its Manhattan abortion vendor location because of her "harmful connections to the eugenics movement."

"Harmful connections?" She was the face and voice of the eugenics movement. 

Sanger wrote, "Birth control does not mean contraception indiscriminately practiced. It means the release and cultivation of the better elements in our society."

And she wrote, "Given birth control, the unfit will voluntarily eliminate their kind."

As pressure to remove statues, namesakes, street signs, and the like of Sanger, not only in New York where she opened the first clinic that became Planned Parenthood, some in the radical Left are trying to defend her.

The New York Times published an article clearly aimed at propping up Sanger's reputation. And they spare no effort.

While admitting that some of her beliefs regarding selective eugenics in the past were "harmful connections" they declared that "she had been mostly well-intentioned in trying to make birth control accessible for the poor and immigrant communities."

That, of course, is a lie. 

Her first clinic, which would become Planned Parenthood, was planted in Brooklyn in 1916.

Planned Parenthood has been put in a position where they have had to condemn some of her beliefs. But only after being called out repeatedly.

The NY Times concludes with a statement that "MS. Sanger believed Black people and immigrants had a right to a better life."

And in her mind, a better life was achieved by reducing the number of Black people in the world. 

They can remove Sanger's name, but they cannot, nor have they, removed her spirit.

About Gate's additional $1.4 billion for "family planning."

While the Gates' are well known for their funding of abortion operations, certainly including Planned Parenthood, their current interest seems to be more directed toward a "family planning" organization---DKT International---which openly sells an abortion pill (mifepristone) as well as manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) kits. In addition, DKT may also be the marketing company behind pills that are being illegally shipped from India to the US.

Live Action, a pro-life organization, has documented the illegal online sales of the abortion pill.

Much like Planned Parenthood, DKT International---operating under the guise of giving people a happy life, are apparently operating---at least in some cases illegally.

Live Action has completed an investigation that found that the Gates Foundation has already donated $68 million to DKT International.

Many of the richest people in the world are putting their billions behind these kinds of efforts. Warren Buffet's foundation donated $4 billion to the abortion movement, George Soros, Michael Bloomberg and the Packard Foundation (Hewlitt Packard) are giving millions to abortion causes.

Jeff Bezos' ex-wife recently made a "significant" multi-million dollar gift to a pro-abortion organization.

While claiming to be using their billions to "help" people, they are using their money to kill them---the most vulnerable of all---the unborn, unwanted child.

They are funding the largest killing operation in the world.


Mother Teresa said, "Abortion is profoundly anti-women. Three-quarters of it's victims are women: Half the babies and all the mothers."

And she said, 

"Any country that accepts abortion is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what they want. That's why the greatest destroyer of love is abortion. It is a poverty to decide that a child must die so that you may live as you wish."

Stand for life. Support those who publicly stand for life. And "do not grow weary in well doing..."
