Pro-abortionist billionaire George Soros gives $18 billion to make his foundation second richest in U.S.

tholics for Choice says abortion is a Catholic “value.”

October 18, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – George Soros, the billionaire who funds left-wing activism worldwide, gave $18 billion to his Open Society Foundations, making it the second richest U.S. charity.

The $18 billion Soros gave to the Open Society Foundations was the “bulk of his wealth,” the Wall Street Journal reported. The LA Times said this transfer of money has made the pro-abortion foundation “into one of the world’s largest philanthropic organizations.”

The wealthiest U.S. charity, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, pushes contraception and the abortion agenda around the world.

Soros is an “ATM for the abortion providers,” child advocacy attorney Liz Yore told the International Conference on Population Control today. He has given “decades-long financial support (to) the enemies of life” and to movements that use environmental advocacy to mask their true goal of reducing the world’s population.

Soros and his allies are aware of “importance of trying to usurp the Catholic faith” with “front groups,” said Yore.

Soros funds Catholics for Choice, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, and Faith in Public Life. Catholics for Choice says abortion is a Catholic “value.” Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good and Faith in Public Life support a variety of leftist causes.

Documents from Wikileaks revealed in 2016 that Soros paid $650,000 to lobby U.S. Catholic bishops on liberal issues during the pope’s visit to America.

One of the campaign’s self-reported successes was a “buy-in of individual bishops to more publicly voice support of economic and racial justice messages in order to begin to create a critical mass of bishops who are aligned with the Pope.”

The Wikileaks documents named Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, a close papal collaborator, as someone who the leftists planned to work through.

Yore said there is a “profane partnership in the Francis pontificate” between Soros and the Vatican. “Soros acolytes (are) populating the Vatican.”

The pontificate of Pope Francis has finally enabled environmentalists and population controllers to claim the moral high ground, she said. Pope Francis supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, numerous pro-abortion activists speaking at the Vatican, and the pope’s climate encyclical Laudato Si’ have all fueled population controllers’ claims that their issue is a “moral” one.

Soros is behind campaigns pushing same-sex “marriage” and abortion around the world. He is bankrolling efforts to liberalize Poland and Ireland’s abortion laws and gave nearly $90 million to the feminist groups who protested Trump’s election.

After Trump was elected, Soros announced a $10 million initiative to track “hate crimes.” Some of this will fund “a common hate incident reporting database.”

Of particular interest to Soros is his home country of Hungary. His foundation funds more than 60 NGOs in Hungary, leading its Prime Minister to slam Soros as a “large-bodied predator … swimming in Hungarian waters.” 

Abortionist cancels illegal late-term abortions after pro-lifers expose him

Jennifer Morbelli, a 29-year-old teacher, died from complications after Carhart committed a late-term abortion on her.

BETHESDA, Maryland, October 17, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – A late-term abortionist cancelled all abortions scheduled for today in his new, illegal facility, pro-life advocates announced as they protested in front of it.

LeRoy Carhart is one of the most well-known late-term abortionists in the U.S. Until recently he operated two abortion facilities: one in Bellevue, Nebraska and one in Germantown, Maryland.

At the Germantown location, Carhart committed abortions on babies through all nine months of pregnancy. Pro-lifers were overjoyed to learn at the end of this summer that the Maryland Coalition for Life successfully purchased the building in which Germantown Reproductive Health Services was located, shutting Carhart’s business down.

Operation Rescue then learned Carhart purchased a new facility in Bethesda, Maryland, a wealthy suburb just outside Washington, D.C. Despite advertising late-term abortions, Carhart is not licensed to commit them at this location.

“We have successfully prevented Carhart from opening his illegal abortion facility in Bethesda today as planned, but we have only won the first round of what we expect will be a tough fight to protect babies and their mothers from Carhart’s shoddy abortion practices,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We pray this facility is never allowed to open.”

Operation Rescue has already filed complaints against Carhart’s new business, which is operating under the name AbortionClinics.org, Inc.

“There is no doubt that Carhart believes he can break the law without consequences. This time, he tried to pull a fast one and got caught,” said Newman. “We call on the Department of Health to permanently shut down his illegal abortion business. His attempt to conduct late-term abortions illegally is so egregious that we urge the Medical Board to revoke Carhart’s Maryland medical license permanently.”

Commercial livestock has more legal protection than unborn babies in Maryland

Situated near banks, the high-end grocery store Balducci’s, and less than a mile from Walter Johnson High School, Carhart’s new facility drew pro-life activists from Maryland and D.C. today.

Among the protesters were Bethesda locals, Maryland pro-life activists who have experience sidewalk counseling outside Carhart’s old Germantown center, and students from Brookewood School in Kensington.

“In the seven years of conducting late-term abortions at his former facility in Germantown, at least ten women were rushed to hospital emergency rooms by ambulance, suffering from life-threatening complications as a result of the risky abortion procedures he performed on them,” Arina Grossu, director of the Family Research Council’s Center for Human Dignity, said at the protest.

Jennifer Morbelli, a 29-year-old teacher, died from complications after Carhart committed a late-term abortion on her.

“Currently, commercial livestock in a slaughterhouse and animals in a laboratory have more legal protection from pain than do unborn children,” said Grossu, noting that many of the babies Carhart aborts can feel pain as they are torn apart.

Albert Stecklein, whose daughter attends Walter Johnson High School, said he was “stunned” when he learned the late-term abortion facility was opening in his neighborhood.

“Only three weeks ago the effort to shut [Carhart] down and get him to leave [Germantown] was successful,” Stecklein told LifeSiteNews. He protested outside Carhart’s Germantown facility “for about six years every Monday.”

Pro-lifers are dismayed “to find out he’s coming back so soon,” said Stecklein.

But “God always wins,” Michele Hendrickson of Students for Life of America encouraged attendees.

Maryland pro-life advocates say they will hold a prayer vigil outside the Bethesda abortion center every Tuesday night, and continue monitoring Carhart to see if he commits any illegal abortions.
