WASHINGTON, Dec 14 ( - American Life League (ALL) confronted software mogul Bill Gates last week telling him that a World Health Organization (WHO) tetanus program undertaken with Gates’ sponsorship bears striking resemblance to a similar WHO program which was exposed as a measure to involuntarily sterilize young women in the Philippines. Gates has donated $26 million to a who tetanus program in several developing countries. 

In its press release, ALL notes that a previous tetanus program, conducted in the Philippines in 1995, aroused suspicion from Catholic health workers since it involved only women in their child-bearing years, an oddity since tetanus effects men and women, old and young alike. An investigation revealed that the women were given the tetanus vaccine combined with a chemical called Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (HCG) to create an anti-pregnancy agent. The BBC, in conjunction with the Philippine Department of Health and the Philippine Medical Association, reported that many Filipino women suffered spontaneous abortions due to the vaccine, which creates an immune response to pregnancy in the mother’s body. 

“The current Gates funded program, involving the WHO in several developing countries, is once again aimed only at women in their child-bearing years,” says the ALL release. “This is the world of population elimination,”’ said ALL president Judie Brown. “Most likely, Gates believes his funds are helping sick women and children, but in reality they’re creating unimaginable suffering.”
