Robbing the Cradle: The Rockefellers’ Support of Planned Parenthood
Jameson TaylorPermission Granted
Planned Parenthood and its allies. George Soros, worth a measly $4 billion, established the Program onReproductive Health and Rights, which has given millions to proabort causes. Ellen Chesler, author of Woman of Valor: Margaret Sanger and the Birth Control Movement in America, is director of the Soros
backed program. Bill Gates, valued at $76 billion, has given $57 million to the United NationsPopulation Fund; almost $14 million to International Planned Parenthood; $4 million to the PopulationCouncil and millions more to other related causes. Ted Turner, valued at $79 billion, earmarked $1billion from 1997 to 2007 for UN health and population control efforts and is reportedly “close tocreating a new film and television production company committed to making documentaries about…ecological responsibility and population control.”The David and Lucille Packard Foundation, possessing assets of $13 billion, is almost exclusivelyconcerned with population control and similar issues. And finally, Warren Buffet, currently worth $28billion, plans to dedicate almost his entire fortune, once he and his wife die, to—you guessed it—“population control.” Already, the Buffet Foundation has committed $20 million to IPAS(International Project Assistance Services), makers of the handheld abortive suction pump; $2 million toFamily Health International; and an additional $1.4 million to Planned Parenthood. The Foundation alsohas intimate ties with the Population Council, inventors of NORPLANT and holders of the U.S. patentrights to RU486.The largesse of these contemporary cradlerobber barons, however, fails to measure up to the granddaddyof them all: John D. Rockefeller. Accounting for time and inflation, Rockefeller would be worth anastounding $200 billion today. Founded in 1913, the Rockefeller Foundation’s vaguely stated mission isto “promote the wellbeing of mankind throughout the world.” For both John D. and the Foundation,“wellbeing” was defined primarily in a physical and economic sense. Unfortunately, Rockefeller thusapproached the problem of global poverty as if he were a shepherd caring for his flock. For Rockefeller,the proper care of sheep—or, in this case, sheeple—requires nothing more than an equalization of supplywith demand. If supply—i.e. food, water and space—cannot meet demand, supply must be increased anddemand must be decreased. The Rockefeller Foundation has used this twopronged approach to greateffect. The supply shortage has been addressed by improving the quality of life for many throughadvanced medical practices and increased crop yields. The demand problem has been solved by cullingthe herd via birth control and abortion.
“Our Cause”: Sanger and the Rockefellers
From its inception, the Rockefeller Foundation was at the vanguard of the birth control movement. Oneof the Foundation’s first official acts was to take over and expand the Bureau of Social Hygiene. TheBureau had been founded two years earlier by Rockefeller “Junior,” with the stated intention of investigating the evils of prostitution. In 1913, the Foundation formally took charge of the Bureau andgave it the task of conducting “research and education on birth control, maternal health, and sexeducation.” “Cettie,” Junior’s mother and John D’s wife, eagerly furthered the project by giving $25,000to “promote instruction in social hygiene for female students around the country.” At least as early as
