Fri Nov 5, 1999 - 12:15 pm EST

WASHINGTON, Nov 5 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The latest in a series of educational advertisements directed at billionaire Bill Gates by the American Life League teaches the Microsoft founder that by funding Planned Parenthood he is effectively funding abortion. The ad, titled “Life begins at conception and ends at Planned Parenthood,” points out that Gates’ foundation gave a $1.7 million grant to the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) just three weeks ago.

“Every dollar given to Planned Parenthood is a dollar that, directly or indirectly, supports abortion,” says ALL President Judie Brown says in the ad. Brown points out in the ad that Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is a member of IPPF and is the largest surgical abortion provider in the United States. In its 1997-98 annual report, PPFA reports doing a yearly total of 165,167 abortions.

The ad also points out that a former member of the Board of Directors of PPFA, Dr. Gordon Perkin, is the new executive director of the Gates Foundation’s Global Health program. “Seems the fox is now in charge of the chicken coop,” said Brown.
