Vox recently praised billionaire Warrant Buffet’s Susan Thompson Buffet Foundation’s bankrolling of pro-abortion causes between 2001-2014 back in September.
It stated that it is “the biggest funder of access to abortion for low-income women in the United States.” Its funding of pro-abortion organizations continued until 2017-2018.
Buffet’s organization gave $76,967,256 to Planned Parenthood and its numerous affiliates across the country and abroad between 2017-2018, according to Foundation Directory Online Data.
Joseph Vazquez of Life News provided an overview of what this spending could have possibly been used for:
To put that into context, a 2011 estimate by Planned Parenthood stated that the cost of a first-trimester abortion can be anywhere between a range of $350-$950, meaning that the $76.9 million the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation gave to these organizations is enough to pay for between approximately 81,018 to 219,906 first-trimester abortions. A more recent estimate from Planned Parenthood said that a first-trimester abortion can be as expensive as $1,500, “but it’s often less.” Using that estimate ($1,500 per first-trimester abortion), the money the Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation gave to Planned Parenthood and its affiliates just between 2017-2018 was enough to pay for approximately 51,312 abortions.
The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute reported in 2018 that the average cost of an abortion (either surgical or medical) at 10 weeks of pregnancy was just over $500 in 2014. If true, that would mean the foundation’s tens of millions in contributions to Planned Parenthood between 2017-2018, in particular, is enough to pay for approximately 153,935 abortions.
In the fiscal year of 2017 (2017-2018), Planned Parenthood performed 332,757 abortions, which signified that Buffett’s foundation’s $76.9 million would have covered 46 percent of abortions Planned Parenthood carried out in the fiscal year of 2017.
According to Vox, Buffet’s foundation spent “$1.5 billion on abortion access in the US from 2001 to 2014, making it the largest single funder in the area.”
Based on Guttmacher’s own statistics for the average abortion cost for 2014 ($500), $1.5 billion can pay for approximately 3,000,000 abortions at 10 weeks of pregnancy.
From 2013 to 2017, Planned Parenthood performed at least 1,305,793 abortions according to its records on performed abortions.
Through Buffet’s foundation, he gave abortion groups worldwide $1,230,585,161 from 2001 to 2012.
These groups included Planned Parenthood, NARAL and the Population Council. These groups either campaigned for pro-abortion legislation, took it upon themselves to perform abortions, or helped develop the controversial abortion drug RU-486.
Additionally, Buffett gave $21 million to the aforementioned groups between 1989 and 1996.
During this time period, the $1.2 billion that Buffett gave to these organizations from 2001-2012 was enough to cover for 2.7 million abortions.
The right to life is one of America’s fundamental freedoms.
But for globalist elites and the financial oligarchy, rights like these seem passé.
Pressure will ultimately have to come from below to see any major changes regarding pro-life issues.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
