Jeb Bush, Planned Parenthood, and the Bloomberg Family Foundation
Michael Bloomberg established the tax exempt Bloomberg Family Foundation. For some reason he or whoever was in charge of his foundation thought it would be good to invite Jeb Bush to be part of it. He was one of the founding directors.
Naturally, since the organization was named the Bloomberg Family Foundation, it promoted baby-killing and cajoling other nations to get rid of their laws protecting the lives of unborn babies from intentional murder (i.e. “abortion” as it is euphemistically called).
Bush remained a director until resigning right before officially running for President.
Life Site News reports,
In March of 2014, the Bloomberg Philanthropies announced a $50 million undertaking to expand “reproductive health,” including lobbying foreign nations to loosen restrictions on abortion.
Bloomberg announced a major partnership with Planned Parenthood-Global to train and equip abortion activists in pro-life countries.
“In 2014, we started supporting local nonprofit organizations in Burkina Faso, Senegal, Uganda, and Nicaragua to advocate for better policies in their countries that will expand access to comprehensive reproductive health services,” the foundation stated. “These organizations will receive technical assistance from Planned Parenthood Federation of America – Global Division to help augment their capacity for effective advocacy.”
Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards greeted the news by saying that “governments need to play a stronger role to ensure that all women have access to the health care they need” – including abortion – “no matter who they are, no matter where they live.”
Bloomberg clarified how the partnership would work while receiving Planned Parenthood’s Global Citizen Award at its annual gala last March 27.
“I am happy to say our major partner in this project will be Planned Parenthood – Global,” Bloomberg said. “In some countries, our funding will help advocates work towards better sexual health policies for teens and better access to contraceptives. In others, we’ll help push for less restrictive abortion laws and more government funding for high-quality, accessible services.”
The foundation’s work included subsidizing abortions in Tanzania. Life Site News gives several examples.
Explain to me how any pro-life work in the United States by Jeb Bush (assuming he has done any) can be interpreted as anything more than political posturing for the base. There is no way a real pro-lifer would allow himself to associate with a pro-abortion group funding abortions and lobbying for the degradation of laws against abortion.
As we see the videos get released, we need to be thinking about Jeb Bush, Planned Parenthood, and what kind of President we want. We also need to think of how the Republican Party already seems too loyal to Planned Parenthood and who could become President who might encourage them to stand against gruesome murder and organ trafficking.
