Billionaire Warren Buffett has been quietly funding the abortion industry for decades.
Though he is an often-praised philanthropist, his massive contributions to life-destroying pro-abortion groups have largely gone unnoticed.
But the Capital Research Center is working to expose the deadly destruction backed by Buffett’s wealth. It estimates Buffett donated enough money to abort about 8 million unborn babies in the past 20 years.
Buffett is the fourth richest man in the world, according to Forbes magazine. The owner of Berkshire Hathaway, which includes Benjamin Moore, Fruit of the Loom, GEICO, Pampered Chef and See’s Candies, he is worth about $67.5 billion.
Between 2000 and 2018, his Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation, named after his late wife, donated $4 billion to pro-abortion groups, according to the foundation’s tax filings. That amounts to 73% of the foundation’s total donations in the past two decades – which suggests just how much Buffett believes in abortion on demand.
According to the Capital Research Center, $4 billion is “enough to pay for 8 million abortions according to data from the Guttmacher Institute, a pro-abortion think tank, at an average cost of roughly $500 per aborted fetus. That’s the entire population of Arizona or the equivalent of the people in nine states: Wyoming, New Hampshire, Maine, Montana, Delaware, North Dakota, South Dakota, Alaska, and Vermont.”
Buffett’s donations have been used to push unrestricted abortion on demand on countries all across the world, fund unethical experiments involving abortion drugs and poor women in Africa, promote do-it-yourself abortions and support other population control measures.
According to National Right to Life, the pro-abortion group IPAS received $33.4 million from Buffett’s foundation to expand “access to safe abortion and contraceptive care.” IPAS develops and promotes the “manual vacuum aspiration” (MVA) suction syringe used for abortions in places without electricity. IPAS also promotes access to abortion drugs without a prescription, or do-it-yourself abortions.
Buffett’s foundation also supports Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion chain in America, which kills about 345,000 unborn babies in abortions every year.
And that is only part of it. His children and their foundations also support pro-abortion groups and other leftist political agendas.

Here’s more from the Capital Research Center:
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.”
Supposedly, Buffett supports killing unborn babies in abortions because he fears overpopulation. The debunked idea claims the world will soon have too many people to survive.
But unlike billionaires Bill Gates, George Soros, Michael Bloomberg and others, Buffett has been less vocal about his abortion advocacy. As NPR reported in 2006: “You mean you didn’t know Warren Buffett’s foundation has been funding abortion rights organizations? Well, that’s just the way the Buffetts wanted it.”
An estimated 42.3 million unborn babies were aborted across the world in 2019, including nearly 1 million in the United States. These babies were unique, living human beings who deserved a right to life. So many babies, mothers and fathers could be saved from the pain and regret of abortion if only men like Buffett, Gates and Soros chose to use their money to help people. Instead, they are funding the largest killing industry in the world.
