This isn’t going to be your normal “elitist psychopaths and their proven obsession with eugenics” article.
In doing research (sorry about the silence) for an upcoming report on some horrifying GMO projects underway, I came across Bill Gates yet again and his financial backing of contraception in nearly every form a scientist can dream up. While I’ve already written and even asked Gates personally about his population control agenda, it still somehow manages to surprise me every time I come across another list of grants Gates has funded regarding vaccine research or new contraceptives or some other scientific “innovation” aimed at the developing world.
Through his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Gates and funded at least 28 research projects focusing on contraception just since 2010. One even planned to test the effectiveness of shooting high-frequency ultrasonic waves at a man’s testicles to kill his sperm. Another had to do with a smartphone app to collect data on a woman’s menstrual cycles, then using an algorithm, it sends her free text messages about her period. Some of you may be asking, “Why is Bill Gates paying to text me (or paying to text my wife/girlfriend) about my(her) period?” The answer is either starting to become obvious by now or horrifying (probably both), so I’ll just move on here for the moment…
The list goes on and on. Decoy nanoparticles that attract and fool sperm. ‘Improved’ intrauterine devices (IUDs). Microparticle ‘doughnuts’ that immobilize sperm. A varicose vein treatment placed into a foam that will permanently close a woman’s fallopian tubes. Oral bait that sterilizes rats as an edible contraceptive vaccine. One that messes with the food chain by using aphids to deliver sterilants to ant queens…
I guess I just have a quick question for all those Bill Gates fans out there who earnestly believe he’s all mushy gushy about saving lives.
Who appointed Bill Gates and his billions to a position where he can sway what happens in someone’s reproductive system?
(It surely wasn’t his non-existent years of scientific, pharmacological and gynecological education and training.)
Let me rephrase that.
Bill Gates, Microsoft billionaire who gave us the blue-screen-of-death Windows operating system that was created with planned obsolescence and forced updates, has all kinds of power over what should be very personal, private life decisions (and life-creating parts). Why?
(Pro tip: his dad being head of population control centers aka Planned Parenthood doesn’t count.)
People get mad at Republicans all the time over the pro-life debate, arguing that they should have no say about what happens inside a woman’s uterus. Gates, with his billions and his research funding, does it all the time…by the same logic, where’s the outcry? Who deigned him supreme contraceptive leader?
There’s something (at least one thing, probably more things) fundamentally flawed about this situation. Gates also won’t answer questions about how he owns 500,000 shares of Monsanto stock and touts its genetically modified foods which have been linked to sterility as a way to end world hunger.
[pullquote]“On a global basis, philanthropy in the United States is the envy of other countries because it’s able to try out things — innovative and diverse things — although with a very high failure rate, with enough of a success rate to really come up with big breakthroughs.” — Bill Gates [emphasis added][/pullquote]Look at it like this: Let’s pretend you, dear reader, have suddenly won the biggest lottery of all time. You are now a billionaire overnight. By virtue of the very fact that you have all that money, does it then suddenly follow (common sense-wise or otherwise) that you should be able to use all that money to direct scientific research projects that could affect the lives of people all over the globe? Sure, it could be for the good, but it could also be for the very very bad (see quote to the right).
Remind me again what about any of having a whole lot of money makes someone suddenly qualified to pay people to make them ‘toys’ that stop people from having babies?
I must have missed that part.
Some call this “philanthropy.” Under that guise, billionaires will give you and the rest of the world whatever they want to, whether you asked for it or like it or want it or not.
So the bottom line is this: because Bill Gates has a nearly unfathomable amount of money, he can pay for whatever creepy scientific research his heart desires in whatever focus areas he so chooses. Instead of this being in some computer simulation game, however, it’s real life where the end results have real effects. Sure, people think it’s real cute when Gates offers to pay someone up to a million bucks to design a condom guys will actually want to use. It’s not nearly as cute, however, when his vaccine programs are reportedly linked to thousands of paralyzed children in developing countries like Chad and India and who knows what else.
Indeed. Who knows what else…
