Liberal Billionaire Worries About Population Loss and Demographic Decline While Lavishly Funding the Abortion Industry

abortion abortions Trump lethal injection New York babyJohn Arnold, another billionaire who loves to fund liberal causes, needs to make up his mind. Do we need a larger population or a smaller population? A few weeks ago, he tweeted, “Net immigration -70% last year and at 10 year low. Life expectancy has declined 3 years in a row. US birthrate is lowest in 32 years. We’re at risk of a death spiral demographic trend. See Japan and Europe for examples of the long run economic consequences.” But while he is wringing his hands over declining demographics, the Soros wannabe is giving millions of dollars to organizations that either abort the next generation or advocate for it.

What makes Arnold’s demographic concerns even more interesting is that he is a believer in manmade global warming. According to the global warmers, a declining population is something to celebrate because more humans lead to more carbon dioxide emissions. Of course, maybe Arnold does not really believe in the scam of global warming and only claims to believe in it so he can maintain his status with the liberal elites. Somehow, it is a little difficult to believe that a guy who built his fortune trading natural gas and who tore down a historic, old home and replaced it with a 20,000-square-foot mansion is truly concerned about his “carbon footprint.”

Nonetheless, Arnold is correct to be concerned about our aging population — just as he is correct to be worried about the sustainability of public pension plans, another one of his pet causes. Once an economic powerhouse, Japan does have a very low fertility rate, and its economy has barely grown in the past twenty years. Italy is another example of a country with a low fertility rate and a low rate of economic growth. Obviously, we would be wise to avoid following in their footsteps.

While Arnold’s reasons for taking on particular causes may be unclear, one thing is clear: he and his wife have generously funded the abortion lobby. In fact, in recent years, they have personally given at least $12 million to pro-abortion organizations and may have given in excess of $30 million to these organizations. (The precise total is unclear because they did not report their exact contributions — only that their contributions fell within certain ranges.) These gifts include the following:

  • between $5,000,000 and $9,999,999 given to the Planned Parenthood Federation of America Inc.,
  • between $5,000,000 and $9,999,999 given to the Planned Parenthood Action Fund,
  • between $1,000,000 and $4,999,999 given to the Center for Reproductive Rights,
  • between $1,000,000 and $4,999,999 given to the Guttmacher Institute Inc., which is a spin-off of Planned Parenthood,
  • between $100,000 and $499,999 given to Planned Parenthood Texas Votes, and
  • between $50,000 and $99,999 given to the National Network of Abortion Funds.

The Arnolds no longer disclose even the ranges of donations that they personally give to these reprehensible organizations, but it can reasonably be assumed that their contributions have continued. After all, their organizations have been giving to pro-abortion organizations. For example, the Laura and John Arnold Foundation has been giving $602,027 to the Abortion Care Network over the last couple years, and the Laura and John Arnold Donor Advised Fund is giving $500,000 to the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association.

It is odd that the Arnolds see a need to support the abortion industry given the fact that, relative to the rest of the world, the United States has a high rate of abortion. Over 60 million babies have been aborted since the Roe v. Wade decision in 1973. Each year, hundreds of thousands of babies are aborted in America adding to the toll. One of the Arnolds’ grantees, Planned Parenthood, is responsible for the deaths of about a third of these children each year.

If John Arnold is really concerned that our population is going to shrink and damage our economy, then he should change his giving habits and not seek to import immigrants from other countries where fertility is declining, too. Specifically, he should stop supporting Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion chain. Instead, he should redirect those funds to pro-life crisis pregnancy centers that help young and struggling parents choose life for their kids. How is it possible for a brilliant businessman — who has a degree in math — to not figure out that increasing the number of abortions will result in a smaller population?

Hypocrisy or just stupidity? You choose. Being very wealthy does not mean being highly intelligent. It only means having a talent for a single thing that happened to make a lot of money.

WHERE DO THEY GET THE MORAL AUTHORITY FOR IT BARBARIC ACTION

Another example of liberal mind warp! Just pure lynacy!

I am sure we all find it very frustrating to be exposed day in and day out to what only can be called “generalized idiocy and personal ignorance” as embodied in so many of the people out there in the world. How in Heaven’s name did these folks ever arrive at the point of embracing “ideas” that just don’t hold up to even the most rudimentary application of critical thinking? It is one thing to espouse freedom of speech and freedom of thought (often trotted out as “justifications”), but at least one would hope these folks would at least try to get things right! I would accept even “getting it close!” Again, it appears “Culpable Stupidity” is not only alive and well, but is actually expanding and thriving!

Speaking of population control – did any else see the infamous Town Hall Meeting video for AOC where one of her supports stood up and SERIOUSLY stated that the only way we are going to save the earth is to eat babies that would otherwise be adopted (then we need to grow less meat). Even worse, instead of kicking her out of the meeting, AOC smiled and said “there are many different solutions but we do need to reduce the population”. Even AOC’s low IQ nutty supporters just sit there with their mouths open at AOC’s response to the crazy gal.

There are some really crazy ideas coming out on how to save the earth. I guess if you believe AOC’s claim that all life on earth will end in 13 years unless we do something extreme, then all sorts of crazy ideas are going to surface.

As I see it, if he changes course now, he would be admitting that he was wrong all along, and that’s not a pill that any liberal is willing to swallow. So he’s dug himself in to a hole, but I’m sure he figures that since capitalism has made him wildly prosperous, he’ll be dead by the time the stuff hits the fan. So, in true liberal style, he sees the error of his ways, but hey, he’s got his, so too bad for the rest of us and he gets to save face, and laugh at the rest of the liberals from his grave. Selfish and ignorant, that’s their brand. The elites are selfish, and their followers are ignorant, so it works just fine. And, it causes the conservatives to pull our collective hair out wondering why the masses can’t see the truth. Gonna be that way till Jesus… Read more »

This isn’t about populations growing, its about moving existing populations around so these greedy leftist can swoop in, steal the resources for themselves while ensnaring everyone else into their dependency traps! POWER and CONTROL are what they are after! Climate change, population problems, economic disparities, it all boils down to scaring folks into allowing these greedy leftist the POWER and CONTROL their addiction craves!!!

Our town wants to increase low cost housing and bring in school aged children also to promote our good quality schools. They don’t release that it costs around $20,000.00/student for the educational costs. If you have 2 kids X 20,000 x 12 years = $460,000.00 to educate those two kids. You need a lot of people paying $6,000 to $10,000/year in property taxes to pay the school budget which is about 75% of our town taxes. What they should be doing is promoting adult/senior communities so we get the tax revenue without the cost of educating the kids. I get it that we have to have kids to replace those those who can’t work or have retired, however, there is no cost control to spend what we have. Every time we have a town wide vote is to raise the taxes. 1) How about this, spend what you have and… Read more »

Actions speak much louder than words.

Considering fertility rates, within 30 yrs or less, what we call America will no longer exist! Its people will be ruled by a Theocracy and its Sharia Law!!!!!!

I see only one mistake his parents made , not having a abortion .

Intelligence does not bring wisdom, and neither does the size of one’s bank acount.

Arnold and his like want open immigration to increase population. Needs to provide lower income workers and voters.

John Arnold was instrumental in the Enron scandal. His firm, Centaurus Advisors, LLC, was a Houston-based hedge fund, composed of former Enron traders, that specialized in trading energy products. Another crook looking to scam more people.

David Campbell

Any doubt the idiocracy is here?

Phyllis

A clear picture of someone who has more money than sense. What does he expect to happen when so many babies are killed?

David Lyday

Wow! Then we can be just like Germany and Sweden. Have a shrinking native population and get taken over by an invasion from Syria, where they do NOT have Planned Parenthood. Have our women raped and beaten up by, uh, immigrants.

Brenda Blunt

To think that money could help all American citizens in many ways. Since they don’t like USA, then they should leave!! Life is important and.should be cherished and protected.

If it acts like a sidewinder,and looks like a sidewinder,and smells like a sidewinder,and strikes like a sidewinder,i guess that you would call it a liberal SIDEWINDER.
