Warren Buffett's nonprofit organization has invested more than $5 billion in pro-abortion causes.
For the fight on the unborn, there is no scarcity of funds. It may surprise you to learn that the Wizard of Omaha—famous financier Warren Buffett—is its largest backer.
Buffett is probably definitely the world's greatest financier of abortion. He has sent an amazing $4.7 billion to abortion providers, as well as the enormous variety of activist, lobbying, and research groups that protect them in Washington, in the two decades since 2000.
According to the Guttmacher Institute, the main pro-abortion research tank, that's enough to fund about 4 million 20-week abortions.
These billions are moved through the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation, a little-known channel dedicated to left-wing causes that is virtually entirely sponsored by Warren and named for his late ex-wife, who was a proponent of population control and bequeathed the foundation $2.5 billion when she died.
Unfortunately, the foundation is a cornerstone of the billionaire's distorted concept of "philanthropy," a phrase that derives from the Christian precept to "love thy neighbor" (phil-anthropos).
Few are aware of what Buffett’s biographer has called the billionaire’s “Malthusian dread” of global overpopulation among the world’s poor. Abortion appears to be one solution to the supposed "problem" of having too many people. Prior to the Supreme Court's ruling in Roe v. Wade in 1973, Buffett and his business partner Charles Munger ran a phony church that assisted women in crossing state boundaries to obtain abortion facilities.
In a 1997 interview with the Chronicle of Philanthropy, Suzie Buffett—the couple’s eldest daughter and Buffett Foundation chair—said that funding population control is “what my father has always believed was the biggest and most important issue, so that will be the [foundation’s] focus. I feel as his child that it’s important to carry out his wishes. It’s his money.”
The Buffett Foundation gave $58 million to the National Abortion Federation's (NAF) Hotline Fund in 2020 to assist pay for abortions—an especially significant number given the NAF's $30 million revenue in 2019. (its 2020 finances are unavailable). NAF, which manages the Hotline Fund, received another $8 million from Buffett, accounting for 85.5 percent of its $9.5 million income in 2020, virtually making it the Buffett Foundation's lobbying arm.
Since 2000, the Buffett Foundation has given $785 million to Planned Parenthood and its affiliates, the largest abortion provider in the United States.
At least $525 million went to Marie Stopes International, a British eugenicist and white supremacist associate of Margaret Sanger who funds abortions in Africa and Asia. Stopes once sent a volume of her poetry to Adolf Hitler in 1939, expressing her enthusiasm for his forced sterilization measures, which "progressives" also aspired to impose on Britain and America. In late 2020, the almost 50-year-old organization changed its name to MSI to avoid the unpleasant relationship.
The Buffett Foundation has provided $89 million to Save the Children, which, despite its name, provides "family planning" services in the impoverished world to "delay, space, or restrict pregnancies." (It’s worth pointing out that “family planning” was coined a century ago by Sanger and allies as the population control movement’s key marketing phrase.)
Ipas, which educates local abortion doctors in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, has received $418 million from Buffett. Then there's Buffett's $467 million donation to Population Services International, another abortion provider operating in another country, aborting the world's impoverished.
DKT International, a charity that offers low-cost contraception to developing nations, has received $259 million from the foundation. Philip Harvey, the creator of the mail-order erotica and pornographic site Adam & Eve, created DKT in 1989. It is named for D.H. Tyagi, a 1960s assistant commissioner of India's Family Planning department, which was the location of many early coercive population control initiatives envisioned by Western elites.
Buffett has donated $57 million to Pathfinder International, a little-known organization for aborting African children created in 1957 by Clarence Gamble of the Procter & Gamble business, a close friend of Margaret Sanger and a leading proponent of population control.
Since 2015, the Buffett Foundation has given approximately $66 million to the Hopewell Fund, which is part of a $1.7 billion "dark money" empire administered by the consultancy Arabella Advisors. These donations were almost probably used to finance pro-abortion "pop-up" groups, which are websites that pretend to push policies before disappearing—speciality. Hopewell's Buffett has also given $70 million to New Venture Fund, Hopewell's "sister" organization.
The list doesn’t end there. More recipients include:
- $140 million to Guttmacher Institute
- $99 million to Engenderhealth (formerly Sterilization League of New Jersey)
- $91 million to Society of Family Planning Research Fund
- $53 million to Center for Reproductive Rights
- $49 million to Population Council
- $46 million to the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy
- $39 million to NARAL Pro-Choice America and affiliates
- $36 million to Gynuity Health Projects LLC, which conducts horrifying abortion research on impoverished African women
- $30 million to Catholics for Choice
- $25 million to National Network of Abortion Funds
- $22 million to Catholics for the Right to Decide
One of the most important cornerstones of the left is the abortion advocacy business. It's easy to see why when you have access to a seemingly limitless supply of cash. Despite the money, the Supreme Court has finally decided on Roe v. Wade, with a ruling likely in June. What will happen to the unborn? Only God knows.
