Rockefeller Foundation’s push to legalize abortion in uruguay is no surprise

Uruguay is under pressure to decriminalize abortion in their country. According to LifeSiteNews, a bill that is being considered, if passed, “would eliminate all penalties for abortions during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.”  By the time an unborn child is twelve weeks old, he or she has had a beating heart for nine weeks, detectable brainwaves for six, can sense touch, and sucks his or her thumb.

 “There are international foundations behind these pressures [to legalize abortion] like the Rockefeller Foundation, the Ford Foundation, the MacArthur Foundation, and many more…” -LifeSiteNews

Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger

Margaret Sanger

It’s especially notable that the Rockefeller Foundation is pushing for this abortion bill to get passed.  John D. Rockefeller Sr. and his son, John D. Rockefeller Jr., founded the Rockefeller Foundation in 1913.  Margaret Sanger founded the American Birth Control League in 1921 which became known as Planned Parenthood in 1942.  She opened her first clinic, the Clinical Research Bureau, in 1923.  The clinic was funded by the John D. Rockefeller family, and Sanger continued to receive funding from the Rockefellers for decades, but did so anonymously because supporting Sanger’s birth control mission was “too controversial for [Rockefeller Jr.] to associate himself with [it] publicly.” (The Rockefeller Century: Three Generations of America’s Greatest Family. John Harr, Peter Johnson, page 191)

John Rockefeller III, son of John D. Rockefeller Jr., established the Population Council in New York in 1952, and was the recipient of the second annual “Margaret Sanger Award” in 1967.

The Rockefeller Foundation’s push for legalized abortion in other countries should come as no surprise considering the ties between the Foundation and the largest abortion chain in America, Planned Parenthood.
