NEW YORK, Mar 6, 2001 (LSN.ca) - The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation recently approved a grant of $600,000 to International Planned Parenthood Foundation (IPPF) to provide “sexual and reproductive health services to adolescents in Brazil, Ecuador and Peru.” The donation by the Hewlett Foundation brings the pro-life boycott of the printer company Hewlett-Packard to the fore. While Hewlett has often funded pro-abortion initiatives their activities have been far less recognized than similar funding by the David and Lucille Packard Foundation, who gave money for the manufacturing of RU-486 and many population control ventures.
