Robbing the Cradle: The Rockefellers¶Support of Planned Parenthood
Jameson Taylor Permission GrantedAs many prolifers may already know, some of America¶s richest men are ardent supporters of Planned Parenthood and its allies. George Soros, worth a measly $4 billion, established theProgram on Reproductive Health and Rights, which has given millions to proabort causes. EllenChesler, author of Woman of Valor: Margaret Sanger and the Birth Control Movement inAmerica, is director of the Sorosbacked program. Bill Gates, valued at $76 billion, has given $57million to the United Nations Population Fund; almost $14 million to International PlannedParenthood; $4 million to the Population Council and millions more to other related causes. TedTurner, valued at $79 billion, earmarked $1 billion from 1997 to 2007 for UN health and population control efforts and is reportedly ³close to creating 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 almostexclusively concerned with population control and similar issues. And finally, Warren Buffet,currently worth $28 billion, plans to dedicate almost his entire fortune, once he and his wife die,to²you guessed it²³population control.´ Already, the Buffet Foundation has committed $20million to IPAS (International Project Assistance Services), makers of the handheld abortivesuction pump; $2 million to Family Health International; and an additional $1.4 million toPlanned Parenthood. The Foundation also has intimate ties with the Population Council,inventors of NORPLANT and holders of the U.S. patent rights to RU486.The largesse of these contemporary cradlerobber barons, however, fails to measure up to thegranddaddy of them all: John D. Rockefeller. Accounting for time and inflation, Rockefeller would be worth an astounding $200 billion today. Founded in 1913, the Rockefeller Foundation¶s vaguely stated mission is to ³promote the wellbeing of mankind throughout theworld.´ For both John D. and the Foundation, ³wellbeing´ was defined primarily in a physicaland economic sense. Unfortunately, Rockefeller thus approached the problem of global povertyas if he were a shepherd caring for his flock. For Rockefeller, the proper care of sheep²or, inthis case, sheeple²requires nothing more than an equalization of supply with demand. If supply²i.e. food, water and space²cannot meet demand, supply must be increased and demandmust 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 byculling the herd via birth control and abortion.
