Join us on our podcast each weekday for an interesting story, well told, from Charisma News. Listen at charismapodcastnetwork.com.
Billionaire investor Warren Buffett is being called "the true face of abortion."
The Media Research Center's Culture and Media Institute discovered that Buffett gave roughly $1.2 billion to abortion groups around the world between 2001 and 2012.
That's potentially enough money to abort the entire population of Chicago—or more than 2 1/2 million lives.
Among the groups Buffett helped fund are Planned Parenthood, NARAL and the Population Council. The biggest portion, almost $300 million, went to Planned Parenthood.
The major media outlets often report on Buffett's "philanthropy," but they've ignored his billion dollar abortion funding.
"The liberal media love two things unconditionally: abortion and Warren Buffett," said Dan Gainor, vice president of MRC's Business and Culture. "Although I suppose it's really one thing they love because according to our research, abortion and Warren Buffett are synonymous."
Kristan Hawkins, of Students for Life, says pro-life supporters need to fight back to counteract Buffett's extreme pro-abortion agenda.
Hawkins told CBN News that U.S. taxpayer funds are clearly not needed by Planned Parenthood so pro-life forces should focus their energy on getting Congress to defund the abortion industry.
Hawkins talked more about the Media Research Center's findings on CBN News Today Wednesday.
