Melinda Gates Upset President Trump Defunded International Planned Parenthood

By  Paul Bois

Melinda Gates, wife of billionaire Microsoft founder Bill Gates, wishes President Trump had allowed International Planned Parenthood to continue its murderous agenda across the globe instead of defunding it.

Keeping true to his pro-life promises, President Trump implemented the Mexico City Policy shortly after taking office. Approximately $100 million was stripped from International Planned Parenthood thanks to the President’s signature, which will save countless lives from abortions.

Melinda Gates feels President Trump made a huge mistake.

Speaking to Britain’s Today Programme, Melinda Gates called the administration’s Mexico City Policy “very troubling” and criticized its broad expansion, which effectively forced “reproductive health organizations have to say, even if you’re not receiving government funding for abortions, you won’t even do these [abortions] in your clinic with funding, say, from the UK or from France.”

“He [Trump] is proposing not funding family planning and that is a huge problem,” she said.

Melinda Gates even characterized the policy as being anti-woman. “If you believe in women, you fund family planning and so I’m counting on Congress in the U.S. to hold up U.S. funding on family planning,” she said.

Melinda Gates will be in London hosting an international summit on family planning. Donors are expected to raise more than $2.5 billion to support their population control initiatives.

According to LifeNews, the International Planned Parenthood Federation “performed more than 1 million abortions in 2016, an increase of 13.5 percent over 2015, and received more than $27 million in U.S. government grants in 2015-2016 under pro-abortion President Barack Obama.”
