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.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
