Gates Foundation Should Include Abortion In Family Planning Efforts

Daily Beast: A Plea To Melinda Gates: Stop Stigmatizing Abortion
Sally Kohn, progressive activist and writer

“…According to the World Health Organization, every eight minutes a woman dies somewhere in the developing world from complications arising from an unsafe abortion. These are preventable deaths, deaths suffered by women and communities the Gates Foundation desperately wants to help and could help — if Bill and Melinda Gates were willing to be part of [the] solution in supporting practical access to safe abortion services, rather than part of the problem by perpetuating stigma and leaving only dangerous alternatives to prevail” (6/5).
