The Gates Foundation announced on Jun. 30 2021 that, over the next five years, and as part of a $2.1B overall package, they plan to spend $1.4B on "family planning."
The Gates Foundation famously champions "progressive" causes. For example, they gave another million towards "racially sensitive" mathematics programs in schools.
A statement released on the foundation's website reads, in part:
"As part of the Generation Equality Forum convened by UN Women and co-hosted by the governments of Mexico and France, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation today announced a commitment of $2.1 billion over the next five years to advance women's economic empowerment, strengthen women and girls' health and family planning, and accelerate women's leadership."
".... Family Planning and Health: $1.4 billion over five years: This reaffirms and expands the foundation’s commitment to family planning and women’s health, with a focus on increasing options and access to contraceptives and support for a network of family planning partners, including UNFPA Supplies Partnership, Family Planning 2030, the Global Financing Facility, and the new Shaping Equitable Market Access for Reproductive Health initiative."
The statement talks about many womens issues before going back to family planning:
".... The foundation has been committed to family planning and women's health since it began more than 20 years ago. For almost a decade, it has been supporting partners around the world to break down structural barriers that women and girls face and to advance women's economic empowerment."
"Gender equality is core to the foundation's work, and the Gender Equality division is focused on accelerating progress toward a more gender-equal world."
While the statement doesn't specify exactly what types of "family planning" initiatives will be supported and encouraged, the organization does have a long history of donating to pro-abortion orgs, such as Planned Parenthood.
