Skip to comments.Warren Buffett spent how much promoting abortion?

The world’s fourth richest person, Warren Buffett, ploughed $1.23 billion into abortion groups over eleven years, a media watchdog has found.
The Media Research Center (MRC), which analysed tax returns for Buffett’s foundation, labeled him the ‘king of abortion’.
The MRC says the money given ‘is enough to pay for the abortions of more than 2.7 million babies in the womb’ – which, it points out, equates to the entire city of Chicago.
MRC’s report lays out the money Buffett’s foundation gave between 2001 and 2012, saying it amounted to $1,230,585,161.
The money was given to groups which either ‘provided abortions themselves or advocated for abortion or access to abortion’.
Warren Buffett has made his money through investments, and is listed by Forbes as having a net worth of $65.4 billion.
According to Buffett biographer Roger Lowenstein, Buffett has a ‘Malthusian dread that overpopulation [will] aggravate problems in all other areas – such as food, housing, even human survival.’
This fear of an overcrowded planet is at least in part what gives him his enthusiasm for abortion. I guess he thinks that if there were more people on the planet his wealth might have to be shared.
Buffet is not alone amongst the mega-rich in having a record of funding population control. Also previously implicated are Ted Turner (founder of the Cable News Network), Bill Gates of Microsoft, David Packard, co-founder of Hewlett-Packard and financier George Soros.
In a similar way the pro-assisted suicide campaign in the UK has been bankrolled by wealthy businessmen.
Lord Falconer’s Assisted Dying Bill, which seeks to legalise assisted suicide for mentally competent adults with less than six month to live, follows on from his highly controversial Falconer Commission which laid its framework.
This was conceived by Dignity in Dying (DID), the former Voluntary Euthanasia Society, manned by euthanasia sympathisers and funded by DID patrons Terry Pratchett and Bernard Lewis.
Bernard Lewis is the English entrepreneur behind the River Island fashion brand and clothing chain and is estimated to be worth £1,030m (€1,484m).
Terry Pratchett is an English novelist who has a net worth of £42 million according to the Sunday Times Rich List.
They are small fry compared with Buffet and Gates but very well-endowed by UK standards.
Baroness Warnock is a moral philosopher who believes that elderly people suffering from dementia should consider ending their lives because they are a burden on the NHS and their families.
She said in 2008 that pensioners in mental decline are ‘wasting people's lives’ because of the care they require and insisted there was ‘nothing wrong’ with people being helped to die for the sake of their loved ones or society.
The 84-year-old added that she hoped people will soon be ‘licensed to put others down’ if they are unable to look after themselves.
It deeply troubles me when I hear of very wealthy and powerful people using their money to finance efforts to legalise medical killing through abortion, assisted suicide or euthanasia.
I wonder if part of the motivation is to protect their personal wealth from those who might have calls on it for care, support or treatment.
The real heart of a society is revealed in the way it treats vulnerable people – especially the unborn, elderly, sick or disabled. Does it make sacrifices for vulnerable people or does it choose rather to sacrifice them?
These rich men all use the language of autonomy, choice and compassion but taking another person’s life through abortion or euthanasia, or helping them to kill themselves through assisted suicide, is actually to eliminate all future choice.
In stark contrast stands the life of Jesus Christ, creator and sustainer of the universe, who gave himself for us when we were helpless and weak:
‘For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.’ (2 Corinthians 8:9)
‘For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. ‘ (Romans 5:6)
Human sacrifice is the core principle of the left.
you got to ask yourself why and old fart like him is so determined to kill babies.

Unlike most parents he also has no intention of leaving his children anything in his will... well, that’s the rumor.
I remember when the free trader liberals couldn’t stop cheerleading for Buffett on all the conservative sites.
Buffett is just another liberal globalist
Top dog in this life, bottom dog in the next.
Others will say we can support maybe two to four billion due to advances in technology. Of course, they get to decide who stays and who dies.
This is why they all share the following obsessions:
most of the time breeders do not practice birth control or use abortion. what is coming across our border does not practice birth control.
The power obsessed may know what they want, but they aren't always rational about how they get it.
“And the rich man, being in torment in Hades...” (Luke 16:19-32). There are places where money doesn’t matter.
Of course, they never look at the flip side, i.e. that we are only 4% of the world's population and land area and product 50% of the world's corn, 70% of the world's durham wheat, etc. And it is about 1% subset of that 4%.
When I read his biography I lost all respect for Buffett as a person. Granted he started as a financial wizard, but he became so obsessed about his wealth building that he did not even realize his family left him until he ran out of his favorite orange soda drink. Obviously, Buffett doesn’t place much value in families based on his own personal relationships.
The reason why Buffett and the other billionaires go all in on zero population growth (ZPG) investments is that it is required for them to have access to their peers. These guys are Malthusians that want to reduce the “useless” breathers (i.e. us) to make sure that the Earth’s resources are reserved for them, which is also why they love setting up non-profit tax shelters like the Gates foundation to shield and channel their wealth into world population control.
The minute Buffett started investing in abortion, the “Omaha Wizard” suddenly became best friends with the liberal elite and the silent investor to the Washington Post and got access to all of their connections. With that insider access he quit worrying about being a financial wizard and just leveraged his insider information. A more recent example of that tactic was him loaning Goldman Sachs money during the 2008 collapse to get exclusive shares while promoting to the politicians that they needed to ram TARP through. Once TARP happened and the FED became Wall St. unlimited backer, Goldman Sachs took off and he made a bundle. That is what access buys you, which requires you to play ball and support the elites on ZPG activities.
