Melinda Gates, wife of Microsoft Corp. founder Bill Gates, said the couple's philanthropic organization "has decided not to fund abortion."

Could this have anything to do with Warren Buffett being outed for buying 2.7 million abortions?
I am surprised. I would have thought she was for abortions.
Why? I thought they believed abortion was the best way to rid them of all the poor people they felt so guilty about?
Wonderful! Thanks be to God!
I don’t think the Gates’ are evil, and they do a lot of good with their money...but being liberals, they are very much adrift and can easily be dragged off into supporting the current “progressive” cause - in this case, abortion.
I’m very happy that they have rejected this. Supporting abortion would undercut all of the good things they do, and maybe they realized that.
This is great news. Now if only soros would see the light and stop funding every evil or harmful “cause” on earth
She’ll give money to someone else to fund abortions.
just late-term D&Cs...
THIS THIS THIS. The Gates are Communist lunatics who want to dictate every action you can take. The Bill and Melinda Gates foundation was designed with the express intention of enforcing the liberal agenda for America when the public sector meets a roadblock. Given that Gates’ M.O. has always been the denial of information to the public, it would make sense that his wife would simply lie about her intentions.
She actually had to think about it.
I think your right on w/ your analysis. From reading the article, Gates indicated that the foundation wanted to concentrate on noncontroversial programs re: women and children’s health.
Maybe coming from Seattle I’m biased. But I just don’t see the Gates family as evil. I had the chance to work with Gate’s SR years ago on a charity program and I found him to be a thoughtful, sincere and caring man. I don’t see Bill and Melinda as too far removed for Gates SR in their world view...but I don’t pretend to know any of them or what’s in their hearts. But as Melinda Gates is a devout Catholic, I’m guessing her religious views did come into play re: not supporting/ nor paying for abortion.
And mainly...it’s their money...I’m happy they are trying to promote health and I’m glad that excludes abortion. There are way worse ways, IMO, for rich people to spend their money than how the Gates foundation spends their $$$.
There ya go. She is lying. Absolutely. She will give the money to someone who will then give it to fund abortions so she can claim she didn’t.
No the Gates Foundation will not directly fund abortions, the fact that organizations they fund do, well semantics, semantics.
i heard the gates’ were anti- semantic
Well, good for her...
Putting her mouth where her money is......
They don’t consider funding planned-parenthood as funding abortion, plus, they really like to focus on sterilization.
LOL! After that post, give me an example of bias.
You chose your name poorly.
No! No! No!
The Gates are evil.
I know, I get my news from Free Republic.
Common Core is well known to be a part of the liberal agenda, although it may not be known to you. Did you not bother to read up on Bill Gates before defending him? Or is there some hidden agenda you have that I’m not aware of?
I thought I was very open about my contempt of your choice of name.
Since you aren’t bothering to shill for the Gates at this point, I’ll accept your concession.
