The ex-wife of Amazon.com billionaire Jeff Bezos is joining the elitist tradition of donating money to groups that promote abortion and fight against religious freedom for all.
The Catholic News Agency reports Mackenzie Scott, one of the richest women in the world, recently donated a “significant multimillion-dollar gift” to Faith in Public Life, a leftist advocacy group.
In a statement June 15, Faith in Public Life celebrated the donation as “transformational” and promised to use the money to build the “progressive faith movement” and “fight for racial equity.”
The group, which also receives donations from pro-abortion billionaire George Soros, advocates against pro-life and religious freedom efforts, including the Little Sisters of the Poor’s challenge to the pro-abortion Obamacare HHS mandate, according to CNA.
Recently, Faith in Public Life criticized the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ decision to draft a teaching document on the Eucharist that could rebuke pro-abortion politicians like President Joe Biden. Though he claims to be Catholic, Biden has been working to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions by allowing dangerous abortion drugs to be sold through the mail and forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions.
“Tell bishops: Eucharist isn’t a weapon,” Faith in Public Life wrote on a petition it set up to oppose the bishops’ action.
Here’s more from the report:
The organization said that in recent years it has tripled its staff, quadrupled its annual budget, and established permanent offices in “several battleground states” in order “to fight Christian nationalism and the religious right.”
Scott is the third richest woman in the world, according to Forbes. Her donation falls in line with the agenda of many other American billionaires, including Bill Gates, Warren Buffett and George Soros. They also donate to groups pushing to expand the killing of unborn babies in abortions across the world.
Many of these billionaires appear to be donating to pro-abortion groups based on the advice of the Bridgespan Group, according to CNA.
“The group’s philanthropic clients include wealthy titans like Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg, and the Ford and Rockefeller foundations, according to the New York Times. These foundations have been major donors to population control causes, abortion advocacy or both. The Ford and Rockefeller foundations have also funded the pro-abortion front group Catholics for Choice,” the report notes.

A 2020 investigation by Live Action News found that Bill Gates’ foundation donated nearly $68 million to DKT International, which sends abortion drugs and devices across the world. Gates currently is ranked the fourth richest man in the world by Forbes.
Warren Buffett, currently the ninth richest man in the world, donates to many of the same pro-abortion groups through his family foundation. According to Capital Research Center, the billionaire’s Susan Thompson Buffett Foundation donated $4 billion to abortion advocacy groups between 2000 and 2018. The largest recipients include Planned Parenthood, Marie Stopes International and the National Abortion Federation.
George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, the David and Lucille Packard Foundation (run by the heirs of one of the founders of Hewlett Packard), and others have given many millions more to pro-abortion groups.
So many babies, mothers and fathers could be saved from the pain and regret of abortion if only billionaires like Scott, Gates, Buffett and Soros chose to use their money to help people instead.
