Bill Gates And Population Control

Reducing population growth has, by Gates' own admission, been a core mission of the Gates Foundation since its inception.

As we have seen in our first two explorations of Bill Gates' role as global health kingpin, the seemingly selfless generosity of the Gates family through their eponymous foundation has in fact greatly increased their own wealth, with Bill Gates' personal net worth having doubled in the past decade alone.

But the takeover of public health that we have documented in How Bill Gates Monopolized Global Health and the remarkably brazen push to vaccinate everyone on the planet that we have documented in Bill Gates' Plan to Vaccinate the World was not, at base, about money. The unimaginable wealth that Gates has accrued is now being used to purchase something much more useful: control. Control not just of the global health bodies that can coordinate a worldwide vaccination program, or the governments that will mandate such an unprecedented campaign, but control over the global population itself.

In 2009, a secretive meeting of some of America’s most prominent billionaires took place at the personal residence of Sir Paul Nurse, then-president of Rockefeller University. The invitation to the gathering was co-written by Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and David Rockefeller, and the aim of the meeting was "to consider how their wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world's population."

Given that these extraordinarily rich and powerful men—including Warren Buffett, David Rockefeller, and Ted Turner—have all expressed their belief that the growing human population is the greatest threat faced by humanity, it should not be surprising that they would convene a conference to discuss how best to channel their vast wealth into the project of reducing the number of people on the planet. Particularly unsurprising is that attendees of the meeting later dubbed Bill Gates—a man for whom population control is particularly close to his heart—as the "most impressive" speaker at the event.

This comes as no surprise to those who have took note of Gates’ repeated pronouncements about the “problem” of population, and his eponymous foundation’s work to combat that problem.

In recent years, critics have pointed to Bill Gates' own words linking vaccination programs with his goal of reducing population growth. But as any number of "fact checking websites"—not to mention Bill Gates himself—are quick to point out, this doesn't mean what it sounds like it means.

Yes, the Gates' stated plan is to reduce population growth by improving health. But the idea of using vaccines as sterilization agents—even without the public's knowledge or consent—is not conspiracy lore, but documentable fact.

It its 1968 annual report, the Rockefeller Foundation addressed the "Problems of Population," lamenting that "[v]ery little work is in progress on immunological methods, such as vaccines, to reduce fertility, and much more research is required if a solution is to be found here." The Foundation vowed to correct this problem by funding "established and beginning investigators to turn their attention to aspects of research in reproductive biology that have implications for human fertility and its control."

This was no empty promise. By the time of its 1988 annual report, the Rockefeller Foundation was able to report progress on its funding into contraceptive research, including NORPLANT, a contraceptive implanted under the skin of a woman's upper arm and effective for five years. In its 1988 report, the Rockefeller Foundation was pleased to announce that NORPLANT—which was developed by the Rockefeller-founded Population Council—was  "now approved for marketing in 12 countries."

The Rockefeller's Population Council and other research organizations joined with the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1972 to create a Task Force on Vaccines for Fertility Regulation. By 1995, they were able to report progress in "developing a prototype of an anti-hCG-vaccine," which works by combining an immunogen formed from a synthetic peptide of human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG)—a hormone secreted by the surface of the early embryo to remain implanted in the womb—with a toxoid carrier molecule. The vaccine stimulates an immune reaction, causing women to develop antibodies against the hormone, thus preventing them from carrying babies to term.

But beginning in the 1990s, a series of scandals over WHO-led vaccination programs in the third world led to allegations that tetanus vaccines in places like the Philippines and Kenya were being laced with hCG in order to implement population control by stealth. The controversy generated by these stories led global institutions to step back from the campaign to champion population control by vaccine.

But, as usual, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation was there to renew interest, working with the UK government to host a "London Summit on Family Planning" in 2012 at which the foundation announced their support for funding the research, development and deployment of injectable contraceptives to the developing world.

The summit led to the creation of Family Planning 2020, an organization co-founded and lavishly funded by the Gates Foundation "to enable 120 million more women and girls to use contraceptives by 2020." The foundation's $1 billion commitment to the cause of making contraceptives more available to the third world included a partnership with the UN Population Fund and USAID to help subsidize Pfizer in the production of a $1-per-dose version of Depo-Provera, an injectable contraceptive.

But in 2004, the FDA added a "black box warning" to Depo-Provera, advising against long-term use of the drug, a warning that they subsequently defended and remains on the drug to this day. Subsequent research has shown an increased risk of breast cancer associated with the drug, and even research sponsored by the Gates Foundation itself has shown an increased risk of HIV transmission in those using such contraception.

But the Gates were not content to stop there. In 2014 it was announced that Microchips Biotech, Inc., a company in Lexington, Massachussets, had developed a new form of birth control: "a wireless implant that can be turned on and off with a remote control and that is designed to last up to 16 years." According to MIT Technology Review, the idea originated when Bill Gates visited Robert Langer’s MIT lab in 2012 and asked him if it would be possible to create an implantable birth control device that could be turned on or off remotely. Langer referred Gates to the controlled release microchip technology he had invented and licensed to MicroCHIPS Biotechnology, and the Gates Foundation granted $20 million to the firm to develop the implants.

Reducing population growth has, by Gates' own admission, been a core mission of the Gates Foundation since its inception. But in order to really understand what Gates means by "population control," we have to look beyond the concept of controlling population size. At its most fundamental level, the "population control" that Gates speaks of is not birth control, but control of the population itself.

In order to understand the broader population control agenda and how it ties in to the Gates Foundation's plans, we have to look at a puzzling development that took place in 2017. In that year, Gavi—the Gates founded and funded alliance that partners the Gates Foundation, the World Health Organization and the World Bank with vaccine manufacturers to help ensure "healthy markets" for vaccines—took a strange pivot away from its core mission of vaccinating every child on the planet to providing every child with a digital biometric identity. . .
