Bill Gates Is Spending $18 Million On Population Control In Africa

The woke Bill Gates and his wife, Melinda Gates, are focused on pushing population control on Africa.

According to All Africa, the Gates family announced at an international family planning conference in Rwanda that they will be donating $18 million to “family planning programs” through the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA).

As noted by LifeNews, Bill and Melinda Gates have earned for themselves a notorious reputation of “pushing birth control on some of the world’s poorest countries while their people cry for clean water, food and basic health care.” Much of the money that the Gates donate go to abortion providers like International Planned Parenthood Federation and Marie Stopes International. UNFPA has also been linked to oppressive population control measures in China, including forced sterilizations and abortions.

All Africa reports that the UNFPA family planning program will direct supplies to countries like Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal and Togo. The stated goal: 120 million girls using contraception by 2020.

“Under the Ouagadougou Partnership, family planning efforts will be made with initiatives that enable 120 million more women and girls to use contraceptives by 2020 and accelerate progress in the use of family planning services in targeted countries,” reports All Africa.

The Guardian reports, however, that family planning goals have not been met in recent years; the leaders hope to change that with this latest initiative.

According to FP2020, an estimated 317 million women and girls in the world’s poorest countries are now using a modern form of contraception, 46 million more than in 2012.

However, in its report published this week, it admitted the figure was way short of its target to reach an extra 120 million women in 69 target countries by 2020.

The Gates family have been open about their desired plan for population control. In an interview last month, the billionaire said it was key to “ending poverty and fighting inequality.”

“The biggest thing is the modern tools of contraception,” he said. “There are implants, injections, IUD. And, obviously, if you have those things available, then people are more in control of being able to space their children.”

In June, Melinda Gates blasted the Trump administration for defunding the International Planned Parenthood by implementing the Mexico City Policy shortly after taking office, effectively stripping $100 million from the abortion giant.

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 U.K. or from France.”

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