Melinda French Gates is dedicating $1 billion in grants over the next two years to bolster what she calls women’s rights. The funds will go to a number of groups and initiatives but much of it will promote abortion.

Gates’ new initiative marks the beginning of her renewed philanthropic efforts, concentrating on abortion and pushing it to the forefront even after promoting abortion on a global scale with the Gates foundation.

The funds will be allocated to support a range of organizations, such as the Center for Reproductive Rights, The 19th, and several others. CRR is one of the major pro-abortion groups that has spent decades fighting to eliminate pro-life laws.

Gates wrote in an article today:

Many years ago, I received this piece of advice: “Set your own agenda, or someone else will set it for you.” I’ve carried those words with me ever since.

That’s why, next week, I will leave the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, of which I was a co-founder almost 25 years ago, to open a new chapter in my philanthropy. To begin, I am announcing $1 billion in new spending over the next two years for people and organizations working on behalf of women and families around the world, including on reproductive rights in the United States.

Women in 14 states have lost the right to terminate a pregnancy under almost any circumstances.

This donation to promote abortion is on top of what the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation promised for radical pro-abortion efforts earlier this year.

The Gates Foundation’s board of trustees has approved a record $8.6 billion budget for 2024, up from $8.3 billion in 2023 and $7 billion in 2022, the charity announced from Davos, Switzerland, where the World Economic Forum is hosting its annual meeting. Over the years, the charity has poured tens of millions of dollars into pro-abortion groups, Democrat-aligned nonprofits and Chinese government organizations, among other causes.

The foundation works in areas related to gender equality, policy advocacy and global health, according to its website. Pro-abortion groups have received tens of millions from the Gates Foundation to promote “family planning” and so-called women’s empowerment.

The Gates Foundation has given over $94 million to Planned Parenthood since the charity was founded, including $10.5 million in 2022 alone, according to its grant database. Planned Parenthood performed 374,155 abortions in the United States between 2021 and 2022, according to its most recent annual report.

Other pro-abortion groups, like the European Parliamentary Forum for Sexual & Reproductive Rights and MSI Reproductive Choices, have also received millions from the Gates Foundation, according to tax forms.

Democrat-aligned nonprofits have also been major beneficiaries of the Gates Foundation. The Gates Foundation has given New Venture Fund over $200 million since 2016, according to its grant database. New Venture Fund is part of the network of nonprofits managed by Arabella Advisors, which The New York Times has labeled a “dark money” operation. New Venture Fund bankrolls an array of left-wing groups, according to tax filings.
