GATES DONATES ANOTHER $6 BILLION

Tue Aug 24, 1999 - 12:15 pm EST

LOS ANGELES, Aug 24 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Bill Gates, the Microsoft billionaire, has donated another $6 billion to his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a charity which avidly supports population control, particularly in the developing world. The Gates charity has reached $17.1 billion, making it the second largest in the world after London’s Wellcome Trust at $19.2 billion.  However, Gates hopes to be first also in the charity arena, and if he continues his $5 billion donation every quarter he will achieve his goal in little time.

Pro-life leaders are concerned that this astronomical amount of money could be used to force de-population on countries in dire need of genuine humanitarian assistance. Many would have expected Gates to feel a natural challenge in developing technological and other strategies to improve thequality of life in the third world instead of taking the quick fix low road of eliminating people as a supposed solution to complex problems. Gates also seems to be unaware that as economic conditions improve in poor nations, a lowered the birth rate always naturally follows.

While he has given billions to the de-population efforts of the United Nations Population Fund and millions to Planned Parenthood and the like, Gates’ motivation may not be sinister.  With his unheard-of wealth, Bill Gates has been a prime target of propaganda by Planned Parenthood and de-population fanatics such as Ted Turner. Judie Brown, President of American Life League told LifeSite, “We are hopeful that Bill Gates is directing his money without realizing that he is supporting genocidal and racist population control organizations.”
