Billionaire's Money Helps Population Control



    OMAHA, Nebraska, Apr. 3, 01 (CWNews.com/LSN.ca) - Although he doesn't hand out as much money as fellow billionaire Bill Gates, investment expert Warren Buffett is coming under harsh criticism again for the money he gives away to fund abortion and population control agendas.

    In fact, Population Research Institute president Steven Mosher reported Friday that "Buffett eclipses Gates in his fanatical commitment to population control" with a foundation "known for funding projects that other foundations, even those similarly inclined to limit human numbers, will not touch." For example, Mosher notes, "RU-486 [an abortion drug] was in part funded by Buffett, who provided $2 million to the Population Council, the chief US promoter of the deadly drug's legalization."

    Buffet also gave $2 million to "Family Health International for the development of quinacrine hydrochloride pills, which once inserted into a woman's uterus causes a severe chemical burn that scars shut her fallopian tubes, thus rendering her sterile. Quinacrine sterilization has become a favored method of sterilizing minorities by the Vietnamese government, not known for its strict observance of human rights."

    Putting the issue in perspective, and raising questions about the motives behind such funding, Mosher says, "some of the wealthiest men in the world descend like avenging angels on the populations of the developing world. They seek to decimate their numbers, to foist upon vulnerable people abortion, sterilization, and contraception. The real needs of these people, for clean water, good seed, and a safe homeland, are ignored."
