The following comes from a May 15 Life Site News article by Lisa Bourne:

A new sterilization drug for women will likely be developed and promoted worldwide thanks to a large donation from Bill and Melinda Gates.

The Gates Foundation gave an Oregon gynecologist $5 million in grant money last October to develop nonsurgical “permanent contraception.” The doctor has now gone global with an offer to fund research to find similar methods of permanent pregnancy prevention.

The news has drawn condemnation from the world’s largest pro-life organization, who said the Gates Foundation’s obsessive focus on promoting contraception in the third world is based upon a faulty notion of what constitutes authentic ‘development,’ as well as highly suspect data about the actual desire for such contraception.

Oregon Health & Science University’s Dr. Jeffrey Jensen said it’s all about putting a stop to unplanned and unwanted pregnancies.

“My goal is very simple: to make every pregnancy planned and highly desired,” Jensen said in a report from the Portland Business Journal.

He cited a study that he said showed 50 percent of Ugandan women no longer wish to become pregnant, but only two percent have access to “permanent contraception.”

Jensen and his associates have been researching an approach on rhesus monkeys and baboons which uses polidocanol foam, an FDA-approved treatment for varicose veins, according to the bizjournal report, which also stated this particular approach “bypasses the cumbersome and lengthy regulatory process.”

If they are successful the next step will be human trials.

    Oh, but they’re “anti-abortion”!

    What disgusting people, with all their billions.

    Of course, their efforts are simply racially-based, along with the Big Momma of Contraception, Margaret Sanger. (But do not tell that to the legions of FeminNazis who adore Ms. Sanger and believe that her words to any racist motive were taken “out of context”.)

    What a horrid way to repay God for His gift of intelligence and the fruits of his hard work. Enjoy Paradise, Mr. and Mrs. Gates. Hillary will not be there to great you when you awake after death to your judgment.

    Is Melinda gonna volunteer to be the first in human trials?

    They dump these contraceptives with their harmful side effects on third world women who cannot sue for damages. And yes these women are being hurt and yes, they are being treated as human lab rats. Shame on you Gates Foundation.

    This “war on women” to use a lefty phrase, is often coercive and for rich white Westerners to ply their sexual mores to poor women of color smacks of Margaret Sanger racism. Hey Bill & Melinda – REPENT!

    The liberal/Communist solution for the beautiful Black babies Melinda and Bill are holding is more abortifacients or plugging the pipes. In reality what results is more Welfare for the undeserving.

    There is NO SUCH THING– as every pregnancy, to be “planned” and highly desired,” by faulty human beings! Babies are made by God, in Heaven! God is the only One, Who truly loves and desires His children, eternally, and He has a Divine Plan, for each life!! How about the pregnancies, of the mothers of Bill and Melinda Gates, Steve Jobs, or Barack Obama? Ha, ha! Were they all “highly desired, planned babies?” Why don’t they teach NFP, and ABSTINENCE, if they are so serious, about this problem?? And also– it is very easy, and cheap–to sterilize MEN!! Yet, that idea never occurs, to the Gates Foundation, or to the Communist baby-killers, in China!! Vasectomy– and a lifetime of irresponsible sex, for both heterosexuals and gays!! A poor man’s cheap, immoral, irresponsible, “dope-style,” false ” paradise!!” Then– to die of AIDs, (or a similar disease), right? Same as a rich, white, sterile, post-1960’s “developed” country, in the First World– irresponsible, and immoral!! Both are worthless, in God’s eyes!! The poor, abused lab monkeys, all should be set free!
