SEATTLE, Dec 6, 1999 ( – The final lesson in American Life League’s 12-step program to “educate Bill Gates” on matters of population control and his involvement in the provision of abortion and sterilization was delivered last week in a letter from the mayor of Manila,  Jose L. Atienza, Jr.

Though Manila has a high percentage of poverty and starvation, Atienza tells Gates, “despite our great need…I fervently pray that you will send not even one penny to our people for what your foundation euphemistically calls ‘reproductive health.’ I know-and I assume you also know-what this term really means. It means chemical and surgical abortion.” American Life League President Judie Brown says she believes Bill and Melinda Gates are unaware that they are funding various groups through their foundation that actually support population elimination. “The Gates Foundation is perhaps unwittingly paying for abortions and sterilizations,” says Mrs.Brown.
