Warren Buffett Gives Millions to Pay for Abortions
National Review Online ^ | March 5, 2014 | Betsy Woodruff

Posted on 03/05/2014 6:49:21 PM PST by don-o

Millions of dollars from the fortune of legendary investor Warren Buffett are going to pay for abortions, according to documents from Buffett’s charitable organization and abortion-providing groups.

Buffet, whose preternatural investing success has made him the fourth richest person in the world, is often described as folksy. But the Sage of Omaha is also a longtime population-control buff, and his foundation pours tens of millions of dollars into abortion-funding work every year. In 2011, his foundation gave more than $115 million to pro-choice groups, with a large portion of that going to groups that fund abortions rather than merely doing education or advocacy.

National Review Online previously reported on the growing presence of charities that help women pay for abortions. Groups like the Lilith Fund have drawn increasing national attention, thanks in part to the efforts of pro-choice celebrities like Zach Galifianakis and Sarah Silverman. Buffett is not widely known as an abortion advocate, but his contributions dwarf those of better-known members of the pro-choice movement.

I can think of someone else who was a “population control buff.”

Satan of Omaha. I have no use for Buffett. His money won’t be of any use when he stands before Jesus and gives account of the lives he was complicit in ending.

So much blood money, so little time. We always knew that Warren was about “investing” in the future.

Well, Buffett is a Democrat. For high profile Democrats every live birth is a failure of cosmic proportions.

Never listen to the advice of a Man who chooses to be evil.

His carcase cant stay animated forever, as old as he and that other one (soros) are, these princes of Babylon shouldn’t have long to wait for their reward,

Its difficult, but pray they come to a saving knowledge of the truth before their time runs out,

“And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Moloch” Leviticus 18:21

“It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.” Luke 17:2

“Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven” Matthew 18:10

“And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all.” Revelation 18:21

Can you imagine one of our Founding Fathers sitting around talking about the best way to get rid of unborn babies? And then accruing the funds to make it happen?

A cool premise for a sci-fi film would involve potential abortion victims having the opportunity to travel back in time to slaughter their would-be murderers.

Every single baby soul is crying out to God for justice. And He will give it to them.

The two richest guys in my town, one a Republican who supports Senator Pat Toomey, the other a Democrat who supported ex-governor Ed Rendell and is now a candidate for governor himself, are lifelong supporters of Planned Parenthood.

That means that all this Pro-Life talk we’ve heard from Republican politicians is meaningless.

The GOP machine affiliated Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation hails a new abortion clinic regulation law in PA as something we should jump for joy over and vote for Republicans over.

I laugh, because the bill just puts the little guy abortion clinics out of business allowing the big abortion clinics of Planned Parenthood to stay in business.

Those abortion clinics of Planned Parenthood are supported by the same rich people who donate their dollars to the Republican politicians and political machine that passed the “regulation” bill to begin with.

Because of the influence of the rich campaign donors, we end up with “Pro-Life” legislation that is really “Pro-Abortion, Pro-Planned Parenthood” legislation.

I would pay to see the trilogy which would include Jews going back to wipe out their Nazi prison-masters.

2.7 million people. This article disagrees with the Fox account of exactly how many he helped to kill. I had no idea. What a horrible, evil, disgusting creature! And I suspect Melinda Gates is just as awful.

it costs about $500 for an abortion.

the article stated he spent $115m

if he spent $12 billion... then he’s paying for the extermination of 24m people

There’s a lot of big salaries being funded along with the actual procedures, I’d think.

The fox account is that he has spent $1.2 B on abortions in ten years…2.7 million abortions.

I had read in other places that Buffett's charities are worth about $3B. That means about half of his charity goes to the extermination of his fellow human beings.

Warren the Terrible.
